With Venus retrograde just about to leave Virgo and go back into Leo, this came my way and it feels good to share:
From Alice Frank, poet:
Love is not a thin line you need to walk.
If you are holding your breath, sucking in your tummy, or walking a line,
You have been pulled over by the cops while intoxicated. And, while perhaps drunk, you are not in love.
Rather than a tight rope,
Love is a floor, beneath you, unconditionally expansive.
It is the foundation of your very being.
Stop juggling behaviors and
Gracefully exit the circus.
Poem found from the entry titled “UNDER a WEAR e n e s s .”
Isn’t that a good Venus in Virgo insight? This is a placement that promises a lot of mental processing. But it doesn’t need to be processing relative to self-worth or not — self-worth can be a given.
