Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.
Let me keep company, always, with those who say
“Look!” and laugh in astonishment, and bow their heads. Mary Oliver
The other day I was waiting in line at the health food store when the cashier asked the woman in front of me if she had her rewards card.
” I am sure I have it here somewhere – just wait a minute,” she said as she nervously dug deeper and deeper into the recesses of her bag.
After a moment the cashier said, “Wait, I think I have found your account in our records.”
She continued to struggle and then finally putting her hand on it said rather wistfully ,”Here it is. Isn’t it always the way- you have to surrender first – it’s that way with everything.”
Venus is conjunct Neptune in Pisces now and Neptune is the planet of surrender. It is also that planet which governs addiction. Very often what stands in the way of moving forward is the unconscious repetition of thought and behavior patterns which have been shown over time to be non productive. This is expressed clearly in the quote about addiction – continuing with a pattern that doesn’t work and expecting a different outcome.
As Venus transits in this area (through 2/5) it bodes well to make a list of what it not working in your life now and what customary thought and behavior patterns need to be surrendered to make room for new opportunities to appear.
These two planets in Pisces also concern faith, inspiration, redemption and surrendering to higher powers for a higher vision.
