Today the Moon in Aquarius makes a square to Venus in Taurus. In Hellenistic astrology, this is a condition of bonification, with Venus dignified in its domicile of Taurus hurling rays of support, satisfaction, and pleasure back to the Moon in Aquarius—our body within the collective. We are living in troubling times, and for many, experiences of fear, caution, heightened regulation, and concern for the collective is holding our full attention. Venus reminds us that in order to be well as we move through troubled times, we must remain invested in practices of pleasure and feeling good. adrienne maree brown writes in Pleasure Activism, “I have seen, over and over, the connection between tuning into what brings aliveness into our systems and being able to access personal, relational and communal power. Conversely, I have seen how denying our full, complex selves—denying our aliveness and our needs as living, sensual beings—increases the chance that we will be at odds with ourselves, our loved ones, our coworkers, and our neighbors on this planet … How would we organize and move our communities if we shifted to focus on what we long for and love rather than what we are negatively reacting to?” What can you do to feel good in your body today—which does not change your circumstances, but does change how you feel inside them? What can you do to support the pleasure of others today? Mars makes a conjunction to Jupiter in Capricorn. Mars is exalted here while Jupiter is weakened in its fall. Together, Mars brings drive and determination to materialize our beliefs and the abundance of which we are capable, and Jupiter reminds us that our actions and activisms today are part of bigger, slower processes, calling us into the magic of hope and faith to sustain our movements.
