Symbols #50: The Rose

Associated with love and romance, after all, it is widely used in film, art and literature as representations of these concepts. And nothing says, “I love you,” like a gift of a single red rose. The connection is nothing new, either. Romans venerated the flower as the symbol of their love goddess, Venus, and Greeks associated the symbol with the goddess of love, Aphrodite.

Roses can also signify other things, depending on the context. To Catholics, the rose represents the Virgin Mary and the rosary.

Astrology #4: Venus – The Planet Of Love & Money

“Venus is all about pleasure, especially pleasure shared with someone else. This planet concerns itself with love, romance and harmony in our emotional attachments, marriages, friendships and other unions (like business partnerships). Venus is content to spread happiness and tenderness, all the while teaching us how to love and appreciate others and the things that we possess.

We appear attractive — and we attract others — thanks to Venus’s energy. Socializing with and relating to others are important to this planet.

Beauty is also strongly associated with Venus. The arts (music, dance, drama and literature, to name a few) and a sense of the aesthetic fall within the realm of Venus. Venus beseeches us to indulge our senses and revel in the beauty of our world. This planet is inextricably linked to refinement, culture, charm and grace.

Venus also deals with the pleasure we derive from our possessions. Luxuries (jewelry, paintings, expensive cars), good food and drink, a beautiful home and a sense of refinement all please Venus’s interests. This planet asks us to appreciate the exquisite nature of things. It’s a sensual — though not necessarily sexual — world as far as Venus is concerned.

Venus takes 225 days to complete its orbit of the zodiac; it is never more than 47 degrees from the Sun. It is a feminine energy and rules both Taurus and Libra, and the Second and Seventh Houses.”

Relationships

“Relationships – It’s more than just the dates, holding hands, and kissing. It’s not about how many times you utter ‘I love you.’ It’s not about overdoing on Valentine’s Day. Not long hugs or writing love notes. It’s about accepting each other’s weirdness and flaws. It’s about being yourself and finding happiness together. It’s about seeing an imperfect person perfectly.” — Unknown

Just You & Me

Just you and me,

Gazing in silent awe at the vast cosmos that is the night sky,

On this spinning rock hurling through space,

We are talking monkeys flying on a spaceship,

We came out of a vagina portal into another dimension,

Smoking and bonding together like we did in ancient times,

The smoke raises my vibration and I see things differently,

The world is softer round the edges,

Downloads of information come to me,

My head is exploding with ideas and then they disappear and drift away,

You are next to me in your own universe, let’s join our universes for a while,

We are in our own bubble, our own universe,

I glance at you and you look at me,

I want to howl for the pain I have caused you,

You still have nightmares that I feel guilty for even though they aren’t my fears,

But we look at eachother and I recognise myself in your eyes, I see the dios, I see the god in you,

Our eyes are the doorway to the soul,

Here we are,

We found eachother through synchonistic means,

Our life tapestries weaving together,

And we take the last puff and walk away from this blissful countryside vastness,

We drive, I see the way you navigate, you were born to be a top sporter,

I wish you could have had those opportunities without having to go through the immense pain you had in your life.

But we wouldn’t be here right now together,

Our maker has a divine plan that we canot comprehend,

We drive and I am the DJ, I feel like I take over the music, I should let you play your vibrations.

I love staring out of the window knowing that you are beside me, are my secret armour, you will protect me,

And I know I should feel safe within myself,

But the trauma I experienced has fucked me up,

I see you try and understand me,

I see me trying to understand you,

You smell so good,

Take your arms and hold me my darling. Sweetness. Blessed.
