Venus is at Superior Solar Conjunction. This occurs once in every synodic cycle of the planet (584 days), and marks the end of Venus’ apparition in the morning sky. It brings hope to the hopeless. It is a time to wipe away all tears and appreciate the appearance of the morning star at daybreak.
It’s the dawn of a new day. It’s time for change. A slower-paced life means making time to enjoy your mornings, instead of rushing off to work in a frenzy. It means taking time to enjoy whatever you’re doing, to appreciate the outdoors, to actually focus on whoever you’re talking to or spending time with in that moment. Your goal has been to achieve the impossible. You have been taking on too much responsibility lately and it has made you try too hard to have control over many situations. In moderation, responsibility is a good thing. We all should be responsible for our actions and emotions, and not look outside of ourselves for happiness. But there comes a point where more responsibility results in too much anxiety. When we try to control things that we can’t, we become angry and anxious when we realize things aren’t happening the way we wanted. We may also try to take responsibility for things outside our control. This is a sure way to become anxious and depressed. Anxiety tends to get worse when you try to fight it. When you’re feeling anxious, find a place that you can be alone and yell and scream. Feel like you’re letting out all of your emotions, and then some, to the point where you feel silly. This lets you embrace the anxiety and not try to fight it. It also helps you feel relaxed and at peace. Try to do your best with what you have and never allow the world to get you down.
