Astrology for Friday, 11 October 2019:
The Moon in Pisces receives a superior square from its ruler, Jupiter in Sagittarius. Both mutable signs—water and fire respectively—this is a push for change and adaptation. A larger, more expansive view of the world is possible, but it will require flexibility. Are you willing to grow beyond your own habits if you recognize that they are driven by scarcity? If you could believe that abundance was possible, what would you be doing differently? Shortly thereafter, the Moon makes a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. A new story about how power operates on and through us is starting to unfold. As Michel Foucault said of power: “We always have possibilities, there are always possibilities of changing the situation. We cannot jump outside the situation, and there is no point where you are free from all power relations. But you can always change it.” There is no outside to power; we are always within any number of power relations. So the question of this aspect and this cycle of the Moon in relation to Pluto must be: what can I do differently as a body to enact resistance, to recreate my embodied life in a subversive relationship to the systems of regulation and control that shape the very conditions of livability?
