Today Mars ingresses into Sagittarius, leaving its domicile Scorpio behind. Mars in Sagittarius is bold, assertive, ready to courageously pioneer possibilities beyond the borders of where we are standing now. Mars in Sagittarius can bring excitement and adventure, but take care around actions that may be driven by the will to conquer. Remember that what may be uncharted territory for you is very likely the well-tended traditions and homes of those we often fail to notice in the blaze of our own exhilaration. The Moon in Aries then moves through a lovely sextile from Venus in Aquarius. Fueled by Mars in Sagittarius, the Moon in Aries is driven by ambition and personal will; Venus in Aquarius reminds us to connect with others, especially those who may be different from the communities and relationships in which we have found ourselves in the past. Finally, the Moon moves through squares to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Less than a full degree apart from one another, the pressure is building between these slow-moving planets. We may find that as we reject and refuse operations and abuses of power in our world, we are also confronted with the responsibility for dismantling traces of such abuses and operations within our personal lives, our desires, and our bodies. As we move toward acting in alignment with what we really want, let’s also remember that our desires may not be innocent. We are all charged with the task of liberating and decolonizing our desires as we learn to honor what we feel within the social contexts through which what we feel, what we want, and who we are have all been constituted.
