Unshaming the Signs of the Zodiac

Unshaming the Signs of the Zodiac

In episode 439 astrologer Britten LaRue joins the podcast to discuss unshaming the signs of the zodiac, which involves re-conceptualizing qualities that are viewed as negative, and radically accepting what we invalidate in each sign.

We open the episode by discussing the topic of shame in astrology, and some of the problems involved with treating certain qualities in the signs as problematic, and the effect that can have on people.

Then we proceed to go through each of the 12 signs of the zodiac and discuss at least two ways in which certain signs can be unshamed, starting with Aries and then going all the way through to Pisces.

Britten is the author of the new book Living Astrology: How to Weave the Wisdom of all 12 Signs into Your Everyday Life, which just came out on March 5!

  • Hi Chris,
    I’m a big fan of your podcast! I really appreciate how deeply you dive into topics, and have been devouring the episodes since discovering your work about a year ago.
    I’m just part way through this episode, and am loving it. Totally the messages I needed to hear at this juncture of my life, and of my journey with astrology. In the episode, at the beginning of the section on un-shaming Taurus, you mentioned seeking a different word than “corrective” for the relationship between contiguous signs of the zodiac. How about “harmonizing”? This term carries the frequency of balance, but without any of the negative, shaming connotations that could be present in “corrective.” Just an inspiration that came through!
    Thank you again for sharing your astrological wisdom. I love the show!
    – Jennifer

  • This was a great episode. I really enjoyed Britten LaRue’s perspective and ideas, and I think they’re important and perennial. “Unshaming” is such a wise and healing manifestation of Saturn in Leo, and hearing her speak reminds me of some other Saturn in Leo natives in my life.
