Venus - Inanna - 4th Gateway of the Heart ASCENT 2021 


August 11, 2021 to Sept. 10, 2021 is the complete activation of this gateway.


GATEWAY #4 and the CHAKRA of the HEART

The symbol for VENUS - she is the feminine mirror - who you choose to love, these people, places, and things, are all MIRRORS of your heart.

Sweet Venus, Goddess of Love and Beauty!! Venus is your BODY, she is the embodiment of spirit in flesh!

LOOK UP TONIGHT (Sept. 11  and 12, 2021) AFTER SUNSET and see VENUS ever so close to the Moon as she passes through her 4th GATEWAY to HEAVEN! 

As Venus makes her ASCENT to HEAVEN she passes through the middle gateway or mid chakra which is the heart chakra, #4 in the middle of our bodies. This is our place of BALANCE.

TIP: meditate on this and discover why LOVE is the gifts us every day with our FEELINGS, our EMOTIONS, our TENDERNESS.......DIVINE LOVE RADIATES FROM A HEART IN LOVE!

Venus passes through the emerging Crescent Moon every month on her ascent to the Great Above.

The Moon is the Gateway for Venus on her journey of growth of her psyche. She is morning star at her DESCENT and Evening Star at her Ascent. If you want to understand better why the Moon is her Gateway read CYCLES OF BECOMING PT.1 and CYCLES OF BECOMING Pt. 2. 

Be BLESSED this month with the divine waves of love-light!  

CRESCENT "Maiden Moon"  - HORNS TO THE Left and seen in the evening hours after sunset in the West until about 9 PM PDT. VENUS is passing through the gateway of the Crescent Moon in this picture.

Go out under the night sky and watch the process as it unfolds...this is how our ancestors did it. They lived under the night sky and it meant so much more to them than it does to us now...but we are becoming world citizens and eventually citizens of the we RECONNECT with the beauty and majesty of the heavens we enliven parts of our brains and hearts that have gone dormant!

"Stand witness to the great above, the Abode of Heaven."

VENUS ascending is asking you to RELEASE YOUR LOVE - give it out to others. Don't hold back this month. Find ways to express the love that is naturally in your heart.

"We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love."

This darling couple is on Sharon Russell's card "Passion" and represents the way we connect deeply and intimately with another SOUL. They are SOULMATES. They are in LOVE and they are living out their dream, the one that they have created together.

But you don't have to be IN love to express this month's enlivening of your heart chakra. There are so many ways to show your love....go, find, be love....find something or someone to love every day of this Venus passage through your heart.  

In Inanna's journey back up from the Underworld into the Light of Heaven, she put on a garment for each chakra or GATEWAY that she went through. This was a symbol for her, Venus, and for us, that we are claiming some new power and potency and balance in the area of our heart chakra. We don't expect perfection on this journey, but we recognize and acknowledge any progress we have made.

For those of you with your journals out and pen in hand you may wish to journal about these questions:

How do you love others and yourself? Are you as kind and forgiving to yourself as you are to others? Has loving someone changed you in the past 6 months? Can you identify any way in which you show more courage to be yourself? Do you feel more passionate about something or someone? Where in your life is there love? Are you taking for granted the love that someone is showing you?


Breastplate from India, 13th Century. Notice the hearts on this breastplate.

The breastplate was considered to have great power in Sumerian (and other ancient) times. He or she who owned it ruled the Universe. We don't need to rule the Universe, but we can become Queenly in our own lives with greater power in our hearts. 

At GATEWAY number 4  Venus is putting back on her Breastplate at the HEART CHAKRA which is both the 4th chakra and the 4th gateway. This is her Gateway of LOVE. You are being asked to put your breastplate of love back on, to express the deep and mysterious love you feel as Venus makes her renewal through you. You are a part of all that is, listen to your heart as it sends its messages of tenderness, compassion, and loving-kindness. What a wonder-filled chakra we will all be expressing at this 4th Gateway of Venus!

Of course, most of us don't have one of these amazing breastplates to put on! ha! but we do have the true heart of our Self. All we have to do is put our right hand over our heart chakra to feel the beating of this potent part of our body, a real heart, the place where love emanates.


Delicate pink hues


and emerald greens are heart colors.

Rose quartz helps you to balance and enhance your heart chakra. It softens and brings IN tender loving thoughts and feelings, ahhh! I love this stone.


Copper is a Venusian metal. It is a 29 on the Table of Periodic Elements. 29 is the number of days in a lunar month! Copper also stimulates your heart chakra to release blockages! This makes copper a very feminine element, one that can help increase the circulation of the yin energy if it is stuck or has been repressed. The mysteries are everywhere, they are really not hidden, only we must open our eyes and our HEARTS to notice.


and DOVE are animals associated with the heart.


ROSE is the flower of Love and it radiates a sense of compassionate caring.


"GRACE AND PEACE are the gifts of a healthy heart chakra."

Like this gateway of tremendous energy found at the beach in Big Sur, California....this is a powerful passage that VENUS makes this mid-August through mid-September.  Waves of LOVE, may you feel them, they go on and on and on.....

Our Heart Chakras are activated and renewed! 

When our hearts are feeling lonely, we lack the courage to be our true magnificent selves! Fill up your heart with what you love this month: people, places, animals, favorite pastimes, cook, dance, sing, participate in a worthy cause, you name it, if you love it, do it and do it with heart!

She wears a crown of 12 stars, the 12 signs of the zodiac. She is Virgo, the virgin, and she brings a blessing of a great and mysterious love through the heart. She is the most recent of Goddesses who have birthed the full power and truth of LOVE.

"As your capacity to love grows, so will your JOY. These two go together!"

Love from your Soul Sistar,

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.....(music)

  it's the key!
