“Love knows not its own depth
until the hour of separation.”
– Khalil Gibran
There’s a lot of “matters of the heart”… heartache and heartbreak… heart burn and heart yearnings…
Venus reminding us of the lessons from her most recent retrograde.
Do not let the pain of heart break collapse upon you.
Do not let it shrink your capacity to give and receive love.
Let your heart grow bigger and brighter as it breaks wide open.
Let it strengthen you, not to be tough but to be soft.
Let the experience teach you.
That you may be filled more deeply
and shine more brightly
And welcome love more fully and completely, than ever before.

“Maybe we’re all traveling a temporary path where we’re only visiting each other’s lives, making memories and creating smiles so that we can leave each other better than when we found each other.
And if that’s the case, then there is nothing to do but smile, be grateful for your presence, and wave goodbye as we walk away.
While many relationships seem to have an expiration date before they even begin, sometimes we experience connections where it feels like we’ve traveled lifetimes just to get to this moment.
…when a story is over, sometimes there is no warning, no happy ending—it just simply ends.
In those moments, we struggle the most because when we spoke forever from our sweet lips, we meant it, and when we said I love you while looking deeply into their eyes, we meant it.
But sometimes, staying becomes more difficult than leaving because we haven’t yet slayed all our demons or grown to understand who we truly are, and so we choose to leave, or we’re left.
And we cry rivers of tears…
But at some point, if we’ve actually done all of the work that we have spoken of, if we’ve really reached a certain level of awareness and consciousness, then the only thing left to do is smile with gratitude for the memories, breathe deep, and accept that everything is as it should be in this moment.
if it’s meant to be, it will be—and we’ll never have to beg or convince to get it.
All we can do is trust the flow of life, trust what each new day brings, and try to approach it as our best selves.
We can love and let go simultaneously;
we can grieve and move on,
but most of all,
we can remember and accept the reality of now.”
