Love Lists

One of my favourite astrologers and FB friends, the fabulous Zoe Moon, recently posted the following:

“So we begin our new and extremely powerful Venus/LOVE cycle, one that is bound to change the way we love or who we love or both in the course of the next 4 months. Take a moment to think about where you are in this, what you could do to take steps to be a better love to others, are you where you wish to be with the one you love or in pursuit of true love? This is the ultimate day to compile a list, the top 10 things you can do to show love or forgiveness to yourself, the top 10 things you can do to become a better love to others, and the top 10 things you would like to attract in love from your partner. This list will be a great measure for you in the coming months, keeping you focused and willing to grow. Venus also rules income which means we are now in a more communicative time, so after Mercury goes Direct tomorrow you should see interviews, auditions, news, agreements, and decisions begin to really take off again, sweet! If you haven’t read about this Venus/Love energy shift for your sign yet, check it out here:

Please check out her blog site, friend her on FB, follow her on Twitter – she also does wonderful personal forecasts and readings.

I was deeply inspired by this guidance and it encouraged me to write some ‘love lists’.

She suggested compiling a list of the top 10 things you can do to show love or forgiveness – either to yourself or a significant other. I was compelled to write lists relating to my boyfriend, myself, my children and my parents.

These lists were very revealing. It helped me shift my perception from one of any hints of blame or irritation to one of , ‘how can I serve this relationship better’, ‘how can I love these people less selfishly’, ‘how can I love myself more’, and highlighted areas that need attention.

The simple act of writing a list really shone a light on the areas I needed help with and drew attention to my own thought patterns and belief systems, and illustrated the best and greatest way I want to love these people, every day.

I am sharing my lists with you, and would enthusiastically urge you to write some of your own.

With love,

One thought on “Love Lists

  1. Ellen, this is wonderful. I didn’t know specifically about the Venus thing, but I have been seeing it in my life. Amazing. And lists? Yes, they are so important. It’s almost like writing something on paper takes it out of the energy of the mind and makes it real…something tangible that we can focus on. Thank you for this reminder 🙂
