The Moon spends the first half of the day completing its time in Gemini before ingressing into its domicile Cancer. In the last degrees of Gemini, the Moon opposes Jupiter in Sagittarius then makes a trine to Mars in Libra. We may feel pulled between the capaciousness of our hopes and faith in what is possible and the practical thinking that is needed to give those expansive possibilities a tangible reality. As adrienne maree brown writes in Emergent Strategy, “How we are at the small scale is how we are at the large scale. The patterns of the universe repeat at scale … what we practice at the small scale sets the patterns for the whole system.” As you confront your hopes and beliefs for what is possible, remember that you make such things possible by practicing them in small, embodied ways. And we don’t have to do it alone. Mars is completing its time in Libra, where it has been learning and teaching the lessons of collaboration and coalition, taking actions together that we cannot take on our own. As you consider the small-scale practices for bringing the world in which you want to live into being, remember to seek out allies and co-conspirators with whom you might do this work. As the Moon enters its home sign of Cancer, we are brought back to what nurtures and nourishes us. However, the Moon moves almost immediately into a sextile to Uranus which could shake up our experiences or expectations of care. The ways in which we have been accustomed to giving and receiving care may require adjustment. As Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha writes in Care Work, “What does it mean to shift our ideas of access and care (whether it’s disability, childcare, economic access, or many more) from an individual chore, an unfortunate cost of having an unfortunate body, to a collective responsibility that’s maybe even deeply joyful?” These are question we may be asking about what it means to give and receive what we need, to ask for and offer help, and to revolutionize our understanding of care.
