“The world is a looking-glass,
and gives back to everyone the reflection of their own face.
Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you;
laugh with it, and it is a jolly kind companion;
and so let all young persons take their choice.”
~William Makepeace Thackeray
We may have first glimpsed our own reflection in a gentle stream or a silent pond. Then came glass and mirrors. Today we have something called a magnifying mirror reflecting every aspect amplified times ten.
Life in 2018 is very much like the magnifying mirror. This month kicks that up a notch beginning October 5th as the planet Venus, which signifies love, partnerships, beauty, and abundance is moving into its magnification phase until mid November, giving us a chance to take a very close look at our relationship with self, family, lovers, business associates, friends, and pretty much anyone we come in contact with.
Just like looking into a magnifying mirror, we can focus on the brighter sparkle we notice in our eyes or we can focus on unwanted lines or freckles etc. Whatever we focus on will amplify in our awareness and affect our mood, behavior and life experiences.
“Mirrors reveal only what the mind believes it sees.”
Every relationship is a symbolic representation of some aspect of our relationship with “self,” so the most important thing to look deeply into over the next few months is how we perceive, communicate with and treat ourselves. Are you picking on yourself, only noticing the apparent flaws and giving up hope, or are you commenting on what you love and appreciate; being supportive of your own dreams. However you treat yourself, you are bound to be affected by others the same way.
Every cosmic shift or new planetary alignment is a gift to boost our future level of enjoyment in life. This is your chance to build a new reality void of old stories, drama, judgements, failures, looping, negative beliefs and old programming that limits you and your relationships. If you make your priority unconditional love toward yourself and others, you will elevate to a realm of unimaginable success that is guaranteed.
Open your heart and dive in!
“Only from the heart can you reach the sky.”
