Today the Moon in Cancer opposes Saturn in Capricorn before ingressing into Leo. This opposition challenges us to consider the ways in which our lives are structured around care as well as the ways in which the structures that organize our lives and livability limit or prohibit experiences of care. What does it mean to care for ourselves and one another—where “one another” specifically centers those who are most marginalized: Black and Brown folks, Indigenous folks, women and femmes, trans and nonbinary, disabled, poor, and aging folks, as well as the more-than-human world on which we rely and to which we belong? What would it look like to structure our individual and collective lives—recognizing that any seemingly individual life is always already a life that is made possible and sustained by a collective—around care? As the Moon moves into Leo, ruled by the Sun in Pisces, we may feel the flames of our own courage and tenacity stoked by experiences of empathy and compassion. If you allow yourself to feel with another or others, what do you feel emboldened to accomplish? The Moon then makes a square to Venus and Uranus in Taurus. Venus is powerful in its domicile of Taurus, and this superior square is a condition of bonification in Hellenistic astrology. Venus in Taurus lavishes us with grounded sensuality and sustained pleasure to nourish the ways we are showing up in the world. Uranus may push us toward rebellious or revolutionary action. Together, I am reminded of Toni Cade Bambara’s insistence, “As a culture worker who belongs to an oppressed people my job is to make revolution irresistible.” Whether you belong to an oppressed or marginalized community or whether you recognize the generalized oppressions that structure our world, how might you show up today and always in ways that make revolution irresistible?
