“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language, And next year’s words await another voice.” T. S. Eliot Four Quartets
This is a critical moment in our history and in the evolution of consciousness for women’s voices to be heard. I think this is going to be a year of power and beauty for the awakening woman, the visionary entrepreneur, the healer, creative, Dreamer; the transformational leader and aspiring leader.
2019 ushers in new beginnings, like every New Year, but this one is especially potent for a fresh start in career and leadership. For example: let’s celebrate the fierce hope that a new Congress in the United States brings, with an historic 126 women of diverse ethnicities, religions, races seated. The image above Rainbow Boat of Women speaks to the Wild Women Wayfinders who are the dreamers of a New Story, the pioneers and pilgrims, the midwives to the evolution of consciousness, the beauty and power of the emerging possible.
2019 is the year to face the truth about who you really are and make a bid for freedom. Get something done. The 2019 New Year will begin with some powerful aspects as the Sun conjunct Saturn in Capricorn will beckon you to devote to your purpose and aim for achievement. Jupiter in expansive Sagittarius encourages use to go big on our vision and aspirations. To add to the fire, Mars will come home to Aries giving us the impulse to take action on our goals.
You are encouraged to step out and take the lead. To be responsible for building your dreams. The steadfast sacred Capricorn Goat is the wise elder, viewing life from the mountain tops and seeing all as it truly is.
If you have been wanting to try something new, this is the time to try it. Your intuition is strong. You can make big decisions and make use of opportunities.
Today (January 1) Mars enters Aries giving us the courage, the inner fire, to take action, to move. This will be a year of exploration, adventure, and action, building new structures and foundations. In a week (January 6) will be a pivot point -very possibly an initiatory change and paradigm shift for you -as the new moon in Capricorn and a solar eclipse urge us to let go of the old story that isn’t working and take clear, focused action on our soul assignment. Capricorn rules the tenth house in your astrological chart, the house of public images and one’s work in the world. Although it is often characterized as a rather stern, strict, controlling fatherly disciplinarian, Capricorn as Sea Goat is a beautiful blend of earthy, grounded, practical energies with sensitive, creative and magical qualities too. Governed by Saturn, Lord of Time (who also rules Aquarius), Capricorn is concerned with maturity, boundaries, stability and structure. A holding place for governance. Evolutionary astrologer Daniel Giamario calls Capricorn “The Council of Grandmothers”. As the centuries-old Native American prophecy predicted, “When the Grandmothers from the four directions come to speak, a new time is coming.” In 2004, a group of thirteen international women leaders did come together forming the first International Council of Grandmothers. This was the manifestation of a big vision that spiritual teacher and storyteller Jyoti had, which matched the dreaming of other women. Without knowing how she and her partner would make this happen, it did.
Reset. Reboot. Make a commitment to show up in a different way. To shine as you are. Unapologetic. Not ashamed. Boldly certain of where you stand, and what you stand for. Don’t diminish yourself or play small. Uranus stations direct in Aries before going into Taurus, lending great momentum and motivation to your desires to succeed. As 2018 was a year of much inner work, descents, reviewing, possibly the blocking of your outer plans, 2019 will be a year of creativity, courage, collaboration and heart centered expression. It is important to have a clear and focused plan. For a jumpstart on learning how to marry your vision to a grounded plan, contact me for a complimentary 20 minute session firstname.lastname@example.org. We will focus on celebrating your old story, strengthening your feminine powers, calling on your dreams, finding a path to align with the call of your wild soul. Are you ready to claim a new name?
The Circle of Grandmothers is one expression of the Capricorn archetype of The Great Turning that Joanna Macy speaks about. They are the teachers bringing past, present and future together to care for the next seven generations.
The dreams and visions coming to us now allow us to come alive again, to a new story of consciousness. This year urges us to build with great courage, creativity and cooperation the structures which will enable the new story to grow and flourish. Some of these desires and dreams were seeded eight years ago. You are being called to play your part in the global shift of consciousness as we awaken and remember who we truly are. We are the midwives of the new story. We carry the promise of the emerging possible. But this takes planning. Sourced in deep feminine wisdom, values and vision, there is a world trying to be born. The larger ecology of Becoming emerges from awakened feminine power. Recover a sense of beauty. Reclaim joy. Revision success. Redefine power. Bring your unique talents, your soul gifts, your powerful medicine to this New Year of creativity, courage, and collaboration.
As Mars moves into Aries bringing passion, assertiveness, drive and a pioneering spirit, this is an excellent time to use your courage and daring on a focused, strategic plan for your new story. Look forward to 2019 to bring new order to your life. To root yourself in the nurturance of your heart and to come home to yourself. You are now at a crossroads, and it’s time to make a commitment.
“The wild soul is calling out, calling for us to sing our song as the new myth breaks through, calling for new vision, for new creations, for the embodiment of subtle knowledge, centered in the compassionate heart.” Veronica Goodchild PhD
