Today the Moon in Cancer opposes Pluto then Saturn in Capricorn. What if, as Elizabeth Gilbert has written, “We are all walking repositories of buried treasure.” Inasmuch as Pluto may describe our hidden traumas, the tragedies entombed in our underworlds, such dark places no doubt also hold some of our greatest gifts, the treasures beneath the traumas and tragedies waiting to be unearthed. How can you feel your way beneath the systems and social norms that structure your relationship to both your own body and the harm that you carry in order to uncover the riches within you? Venus ingresses into Aries—the sign of its antithesis or detriment. Venus is the planet of love, beauty, and union. Aries, ruled by Mars, is a sign associated with individuation and impulsive assertion, always prepared to meet conflict head-on. As Venus moves through Aries, it may be more challenging to avoid conflict in our relationships. If things heat up or become enflamed, use this as an opportunity to clarify what each person wants, staying curious about what needs and desires are driving the conflict, and potentially responding more effectively once those drives are in the open. The Moon then ingresses into Leo and directly into a trine to Venus. Leo reminds us to show up fully in our blazing authenticity, shining brightly in our dazzling brilliance. How might you experience love more fully if you were to share more of yourself with those around you? The Moon finally makes a square to Uranus in Taurus, and how we have been willing to show up as and for ourselves in the past may no longer be sufficient. We may find ourselves propelled into more honest authenticity than we had yet imagined, requiring more trust and more courage.
