"It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not."

-- André Gide

Now that we've all had an opportunity to experience the darker sides of Venus -- love and relationships -- over the past month, we're ready to move forward -- armed and awake -- on January 31. Venus Retrograde in Capricorn in the first month of 2014 was no doubt a challenging reunion with shadows, jealousies, power plays, insecurities and toxic patterns.

As Venus goes direct on January 31, the question is how do we want to move forward with new awareness? How do we bring more integrity into our relationships? It’s time to pave new ground with enough self-love to sustain us through any future storms.

Whether you’re in a new relationship, navigating an existing one or preparing for your next duo, this is the time to get clear about what you are saying yes and no to when it comes to partnering. What are the rules, deal breakers and necessary boundaries you need to make your relationships solid?

Two of the essential ingredients to a stable, high-road relationship are patience and forgiveness. The question to ask now that Venus is direct is: is your love strong enough? How much are you willing to endure and work on in order to bring the darkness to light in your intimate encounters?

Capricorn symbolizes the hard work necessary to build something lasting. As long as we value the relationship, we will put in the effort required to overcome all the obstacles and challenges that inevitably arise in the merger of two individual personalities. If we don’t see the value in the long-term potential, chances are we will cut our losses and save our precious time and energy for someone or something we deem more worthwhile.

The danger here is the illusion that by changing partners we can somehow break the pattern when in reality the saying goes, “swap the partner, keep the problem.” In that case, it might be better to take enough time to break the pattern internally before embarking on a new tryst.

Ultimately, the point now is to march forward with the new insights firmly under your belt rather than turn a blind eye to what you've just revisited. There's a cosmic reason as to why we repeat lessons!
