Today the Moon in Aquarius makes a square to the Sun in Scorpio, entering the waxing quarter phase of this lunation cycle, the midpoint between the New Moon in Scorpio and the Full Moon in Taurus. The waxing quarter can be a time of crisis, encountering challenges that pressure us to commit to the path that is coming into view. In this lunation cycle from Scorpio to Taurus, this path will likely describe our individual and collective journeys from shame to pleasure, from the deep feelings that we keep hidden from view into the glorious affirmation of our own bodies, their capacities to feel good, and the richness of our desires that lead us to an abundance of pleasure. In Aquarius, we may find that we are overthinking, over-analyzing, or over-intellectualizing in ways that perhaps pull us farther from our embodied experiences. Take a deep breath. Follow that breath back into your body, and feel for the ways is which your body is signaling directions for how to move forward. The Moon ends the day in a trine to Mars in Libra. Aquarius and Libra are both air signs, concerned with connection, ideation, conversation, and the realm of thoughts. Sometimes gaining greater perspective on where we are in our processes comes from connecting with others, finding ways to channel our shared experiences into joint action. It could be useful to talk through what you’re experiencing with a friend or loved one; it could also be useful to check in on them, ask them what they’re processing right now, and find how holding their story gives a different context or frame for making sense of your own.
