January 7 - 13

2019 continues to help the zodiac with supportive transits that promote new beginnings. Uranus moved direct in Aries last Sunday giving us the power to change what needs to change and the emotional resilience to make it happen. I’m learning more about “shame resilience” and it’s four steps here just in time for Capricorn Season:

“1) Recognizing and accepting personal vulnerability: All of us are vulnerable to experiences of shame, our shame triggers. When we recognize the emotional and physical signs of shame, we have the chance to understand what’s happening and why, and to seek help.

2) Raising critical awareness regarding social/cultural expectations: Critical awareness surrounding shame is the ability to link how we are personally feeling with society’s sometimes conflicting and shaming expectations of us as individuals.

3) Reaching Out: When we reach out for support, we may receive empathy, which is incompatible with shame and judgment. We recognize that our most isolating experiences are also the most universal.

4) Speaking shame, possessing the language and emotional competence to discuss and deconstruct shame: By learning the language of shame, we learn to draw distinctions between shame, guilt, embarrassment, and humiliation. “

Now on to transits! Love Goddess Venus enters jetsetting Sagittarius on Monday until February 3rd helping us feel more optimistic about romantic relationships of the past, present, and future. It’s a difficult tension of the human experience that where we want to experience the most joy in love we feel the most pain. Venus in Sagittarius will help the zodiac heal by speaking our truths on love to those who need to hear it.

On Sunday, Jupiter in Sagittarius will square Neptune in Pisces which makes the end of the week a highly intuitive, dreamy one. Consider what visions and fantasies come up for you as helpful intelligence from the Universe. The facts, figures, and details could be overlooked in particular situations so double-check, ask questions to yourself and others to avoid miscommunication and soften into the day.
