Understanding Your Daily Focus
Venus is one of the brightest objects in the night sky, so
it’s no wonder that our collective fascination with her goes back to ancient
times. Venus is connected to deities across myriad cultures. She is Venus in Rome,
Aphrodite in Greece, and Freya in the North. She is always the goddess of love,
beauty, and sex.
Venus rules Taurus, whose season ushers in spring. Symbols of fertility, new life, and abundance permeate her mythological existence. In this week’s Daily Focus, I want to harvest the energy of Venus as we fully embrace spring. Let’s take a look at some of the ways that Venus has been revered over the years, and how we can call on her power to create peace, beauty, and love this week.

“Venus favors the bold.” –Ovid
At its most basic, this quote means high risk, high reward.
When it comes to love and feelings, it’s good to put it out there and be
honest. If you don’t shoot your shot, you’ll never know what you’re missing.

“There are so many stars shining in the sky, so many
beautiful things winking at you, but when Venus comes out, all the others are
waned, they are pushed to the background.” –Mehmet Murat Ildan
For centuries, Venus’ warm glow has mesmerized people. When there is someone or something, that you love above others, it seems to shine. Follow your shine today and focus on the things that bring you happiness.

“Calms appear, when Storms are past;
Love will have his Hour at last:
Nature is my kindly Care;
Mars destroys, and I repair;
Take me, take me, while you may,
Venus comes not ev’ry Day.” –John Dryden
Some days suck. Some days are ruled by Mars, and we are irritable and angry. But some days are warm and delightful and carry the energy of Venus within them. If you’re struggling to see the beauty today, it’s okay. Just try again tomorrow.

“All things of the sea belong to Venus; pearls and
shells and alchemists’ gold and kelp and the riggish
smell of neap tides, the inshore green, and purple
further out and the joy of distances and the roar of
falling masonry, all these are hers, but she doesn’t
come out of the sea for all of us.” –John
This is a long way of saying, “happiness is elusive.” And isn’t that the truth? It also doesn’t look the same for all of us. Love looks different. Peace looks different. Focus looks different. It’s hard to compare yourself to other people, their successes and achievements, but try not to focus on that today. Think about how far you’ve come and be proud of yourself.

“The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are
still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest
veins. The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever. Who knows
the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling
exquisitely through us all the time.” –D. H. Lawrence
All of the celestial bodies above us are constantly pushing
and pulling, astrologically and spiritually. The energy that they bring has
been magnified by the appreciation that people have for them. When spring
comes, and it’s Venus’ time to shine, let yourself be washed clean by the
energy of renewal.

“Venereal: From Venus, the goddess of love, this word
refers to the reality of desire. With the rise of Protestantism and science,
the word disease was tacked on in a revealing combination of categorization and
moralizing. Which disease? The disease of love.” –John Ralston
I didn’t realize that the word Venereal came from Venus
until recently, but I think it’s such an interesting example of how these
ancient deities have worked their way into our modern world. There are hidden
tributes everywhere, even in some unexpected places.

“Throughout the ages, stories with certain basic
themes have recurred over and over, in widely disparate cultures; emerging like
the goddess Venus from the sea of our unconscious.” –Joan D.
This is a meta quote because the stories that I have seen rise over and over again are Venus’ stories. Those of love and beauty, friendship and family. Take the time today to let your loved ones know how much they mean to you.
