“No one else has access to the world you carry around within yourself; you are its custodian and entrance. No one else can see the world the way you see it. No one else can feel your life the way you feel it. Thus it is impossible to ever compare two people because each stands on such different ground. When you compare yourself to others, you are inviting envy into your consciousness; it can be a dangerous and destructive guest.”
–John O’Donohue, Anam Cara, A Book of Celtic Wisdom
Venus squares Chiron today, opening up old wounds around our own inner beauty or personal value. These old wounds are like trapped birds – they seek release which leads to freedom and the soul’s purpose. Don’t trap your wounded places – allow them to fly free and lead you to your own freedom and joy.
