Gateway of Descent #3 Venus/Inanna Removes Her Necklace 


Venus goes through Gateway #3 September 13, 2020, at 11:53 PM PDT so look either the morning before, that morning, or the morning after for your best viewing - TIME: early hours of the morning before sunrise in the EAST.

Venus works with her 5th chakra from mid-September to mid-October 2020


GATEWAY #3 The 5th or THROAT Chakra 

 Speaking Your Deepest Truth

Communication - speaking and listening - bring us closer to one another at every level of life!

Now, at GATEWAY number 3, Venus is removing her necklace at the THROAT CHAKRA.  This is the Gateway of COMMUNICATION. We are being asked to look at our communications with all beings. How do we express ourselves? Are we good listeners? Do we convey our TRUTH? Are we having trouble communicating with certain people? Is it hard for us to say what we need? Do we lose our power by speaking falsely or without taking our feelings and needs into account?

Can we listen without interrupting?

Moon  conjuncts Venus = a Gateway of Venus/Inanna

It is the Moon and Venus that are joined at the Gateway, this month's conjunction takes place in the sign of 8 to 9 ° Leo. This makes it more vital that we speak AND LISTEN from our HEARTS.

This could help smooth communications this month and give us a time for silent reflection in the heart to consider how and what we say, how and when we listen more deeply and intently to what the other is saying. Affirm the power of love in your words.

Love and truth are inseparable.

The fifth chakra when in balance enables us to express the creative and life-affirming aspects of ourselves.

As we make our descent with Venus/Inanna this month we become conscious of where and about what we are NOT speaking our truth with true words, perhaps our voice becomes too loud and our language coarse. It may not echo the Divine Feminine!!! Oh, yes, this can happen to all of us. I notice myself speaking louder and louder when I think I am not being heard or when I think my point of view is the 'right' one!

This would be a good month to create a new necklace or pair of earring....turquoise, blue topaz, yellow topaz, and rose quartz for soothing the heart and are the stones that work well to restore and heal this chakra. Emerald could help calm down the chattiness so you can speak from calmness instead of fear or anxiety.

Morning Glory with its vitality and exuberance is a flower associated with the throat chakra. Morning Glory opens in the morning to meet and greet this all-new miraculous day.

The hummingbird is one of the animals associated with this chakra. A quick, direct, and fast-moving little creature can remind us of our speech. Have you ever seen a hummingbird up real close as it gazes into your eyes and 'listens' to you? We can understand the language of birds and spirit beings, of plants and stones if we are quiet and LISTEN with all our senses.

"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless."

Mother Theresa

We can become liberated by owning up and facing up to our Truth. No longer telling ourselves lies, we become vulnerable and open, dropping our mask of social conditioning. Then we can awaken to our true human potential.

"Now I pray that each and every being's true nature be revealed, that we each see clearly our inherent truth and find liberation from the shackles of suffering and difficulty imposed by the limitations of our mind."    Chagdud Tulku

As Venus/Inanna makes her descent we may find ourselves miscommunicating or finding it hard to say what is true for us. We notice this and remember that even our shadow could come up to try to deceive us into thinking certain things are true when they are not. As you RELEASE past hurts, manipulations, coercion, the fear of criticism or punishment, you can begin the process of releasing your voice, of clearing your consciousness so that you can make the sounds of truth. 

Singing, chanting, acting, toning, and HUMMING are all activities that vibrate and enlive your throat chakra. They promote self-expression and release tension.

Make all kinds of connections this month: teachers, friends, neighbors, those we respect, those we do not respect...practice speaking your truth with kindness. Make good boundaries and say "NO" when necessary as this could also relieve a blocked 5th chakra. You might want to say "YES" however if you feel too take your time. You can always call someone back and say "I changed my mind!" 

"Ceres"      by Sharon Russell

Reclaim your right and joy to think spirit-infused thoughts! Use new imaginative ways of telling your story with words that alleviate your suffering! This could be quite a challenge for some of us. Will you tell me what you come up with? Send your thoughts to me at I promise to read them all! And I would be thrilled to be a small part of the journey of your life girlfriend!


LOOK UP to the EAST before SUNRISE, to view the progress of Venus as she goes through her third Gateway of Descent (Horns to the Right is the OLD or BALSAMIC MOON that you will be looking at and Venus will be BRIGHT but not twinkling).

Gateway #3  is Sept 13 at 11:53 PM Pacific Daylight Time at 8 to 9° Leo. I suggest you start viewing a day or two earlier to watch the progress of Venus. The day after will also find Venus near the Moon. I got up at 6 AM to find Venus as bright as a glistening gemstone just hanging there waiting to be admired just a few days ago all by itself with the Moon way off to the right of it.

We see the Gateway of the Balsamic Moon with Venus before the sun rises before it disappears into the bright sunlight. You can start looking around 4 to 5 AM in the morning up until about 6 to 6:30 depending on where you live.

From Meditative Mind some chakra balancing gonging: (MUSIC)

Open your throat chakra and sing or chant to the light of the Moon/Venus and let the light and love pour in! ENJOY!

May your dreams whisper sweet messages from your heart.

I wish you peaceful dreams.....but if instead, you have some dreams that are not, write then down and talk them out with a friend - they may relate to your work with this chakra during this time from mid-Sept. through mid-October 2020.
