Today the Moon in Sagittarius makes a square to Neptune in Pisces. Worlds are expanding and borders are dissolving. As familiar horizons recede further into unknown and unseen territories, we may find that what we thought were our boundaries or our edges are no longer clear. We may find that we—our bodies—are far more permeable than we imagined, surrounded and penetrated by the visible and the invisible to such an extent that there can be no radical separation between a body and a world. Catriona Sandilands writes, “… a queer body politics suggests an active, sustained and politicized recognition of bodies perpetually in the throes of materialization … How to live the body on and in this dynamically porous skin? How to practice a body-on-the-skin in a way that does not aim to coherence and closure, not to infinite fluidity, but to an active, sensual and contextual semi-permeability?” How might today provide opportunities to recognize and accept our own porosity and permeability, practicing personhood in such a way that refuses closure or the isolation of the self, and manages boundaries as pathways and passages of relation from which we are composed again and again? Both Neptune and the Moon are ruled by Jupiter in Capricorn, which invites us to contemplate the consequences and long-term effects of reimagining our bodies and selves in more open and expansive ways.
