There is only one major aspect today: the Moon in Sagittarius perfects a square to Neptune retrograde in Pisces. Hard aspects to Neptune can create confusion, disorientation, the disruption of clear boundaries, and overwhelming sensitivity. With both planets ruled by Jupiter retrograde and fallen in Capricorn, we may find ourselves drifting into excessive indulgence that is no longer in our best interests. Sara Ahmed writes in Queer Phenomenology: Orientations, Objects, Others, “If orientation is about making the strange familiar through the extension of bodies into space, then disorientation occurs when that extension fails. Or we could say that some spaces extend certain bodies and simply do not leave room for others. Now in living a queer life, the act of going home, or going back to the place I was brought up, has a certain disorienting effect … In such moments, when bodies do not extend into space, they might feel ‘out of place’ where they have been given ‘a place.’ Such feelings in turn point to other places, even ones that have yet to be inhabited.” If today you find yourself disoriented or overwhelmed by a feeling of displacement, while this may be challenging, it can also be generative. What other places are your turned toward when you find yourself out of place? If disorientation is a loss of the familiar, what new or strange possibilities now come within reach through this unfamiliar and uncertain orientation? How might you inhabit the world differently because you are no longer oriented to the world in the same way?
