The Moon in Libra may be seeking social connections and gathering different perspectives in order to make sense of processes that are just beginning to unfold. As the Moon makes a square to Pluto in Capricorn, we may find ourselves at odds with positions of power with deep roots in the underworld of our daily reality. Look around you: as you learn to see from more and more points of view other than your own, do you find that deep injustices and abuses of power—such as centuries of colonization, enslavement, displacement, and dispossession—are becoming increasingly undeniable as the foundations of towering institutions that structure our contemporary global world? What are you being asked to confront? As the Sun makes a conjunction to Mars, we may experience uncommon clarity or understanding about the actions we are taking, a purity of focus that brings new vitality and visibility to the work that we’re doing. Whatever confrontation the Moon square Pluto is asking us to face, Mars cazimi in the heart of the Sun brings bold courage to separate from whatever is not serving life.
Venus in Virgo makes a square to Jupiter in Sagittarius midday eastern time. As one benefic overcomes the other, there is considerable support and affirmation for the changes with which we’re moving. Venus offers the meticulous clarity of Virgo to Jupiter’s expansive vision for all that’s possible at the horizons of where we are standing.
In the evening, the Moon will enter Scorpio, the sign of its fall, in the first few degrees of its waxing crescent phase. Even as the work at hand begins to become focused and clear, the Moon in its fall may feel unrecognized or even depreciated. It does, however, have reception from Mars through a sextile aspect, and Mars is still within 1º of an exact conjunction to the Sun. So even if you feel as if the work you’re doing—on yourself or toward the future—is not being seen, receive the resources that are available to you to sustain whatever you are doing.
