Wake Up to Your Life of Joy: Freedom from Oppression
By Dorothy Wallis


Sometimes it is best to move on.  Do you need a kick in the pants to disengage from people or situations that do not support you?  Rejoice because the support is here for you now.  The rising social consciousness in humanity mixed with the current cosmological aspects of Venus in motherly Cancer opposing Saturn the taskmaster in Capricorn has created a time period ripe for movement. 

It is a movement towards freedom from emotional constraints and patterns of lack that oppress your spirit.  

Are you enjoying your life?  Are you being treated well?  What does your heart say?  Are you trudging through your life and hoping it will get better?  Are you holding on to relationships or commitments that don’t work for you?  It is time to face the truth and to release whatever is not bringing you joy.  It is time to take the reins of your life and create it the way you want it.  Your soul is beckoning you to be in integrity with your highest values.  Self-nurturing is essential.  What rocks your world?

Are you staying in a situation that is difficult out of obligation or duty?  It may be your relationship to work or a personal relationship.  Are you “putting up” in order to keep things status quo?  Are you staying out of fear?  Have you left yourself out of the equation in order to “make right” what was not healed from the past? 

Venus is not wimpy.  She is telling you to take care of your emotional needs. Whatever happened in your past is something to learn from; it is not to remain in limbo and to keep punishing yourself or to submit to harmful behavior.  You do not need to stay in an old pattern.

Perhaps you were taught that you needed to be the savior.

You took on the scepter of the rescuer.  It may feel good to take on that role.  There can be a sense of pride.  Is pride making you a martyr?  Look deep inside.  Is this really serving others or are you holding them back from experiencing their lessons, their power, and their resilience?  Are you supporting their empowerment?  Do your actions serve you or drain you?  Can you let go and know that love is always with you?  Are you filled with Joy or are you serving from guilt, obligation or a role you have been comfortable doing but no longer fills your heart or is in line with your values?

When guilt arises it has the duty to inform you of your indiscretions.  It is not meant as a punishment.  It asks for you to make amends if you have caused harm to another and to make conscious improvements to stop detrimental behaviors and create healthy ones that benefit all.  Sometimes guilt is misplaced.  It is placed “upon” you by others.  Have you ever been “guilted?” 

Have you been called selfish for following your path and your desires?  As long as you are truly being responsible in a healthy way to others and yourself, you have the right to live your dreams.

If you have been holding yourself back out of fear of lack in any form (love, abundance, security), life is compelling you to step out of the box of your own constraints.  Are there emotions you have stifled or rejected?  Emotions are powerful jolts that inform you of thoughts and patterns that lie under the surface of your consciousness.  They will speak your frustrations, your pleasures and more importantly point the way to your desires.  Ignoring them or shoving them under causes your soul to ache.  Be conscious of your truth…the real truth.  Don’t fake it or downplay what is speaking inside of you.  When you are in integrity with yourself a natural boundary forms that protects you from oppression.  Joy arises in response to the stability of your inner self-worth.  

You are Worth It.  

A window of opportunity has opened.  Venus the goddess of love implores you to feel your heart and to be in relationship with people and pursuits that nurture you, support you, and bring you comfort and joy. Begin by doing it for yourself. It is the perfect time to heal your wounds and patterns and bring into your life healthy abundant relationships on all levels.  The universe is not one of lack. Abundance is here for you. Life is meant to be an expansive encounter with the heart of love and Enjoying your Life is Love in Action.
