The day begins with Mercury in Scorpio opposing Uranus in Taurus. This opposition is the peak of a cycle that began when Mercury was conjunct Uranus back in early May 2019. This aspect may refer back to this time and what was beginning to rumble beneath the surface, the disruptions or sudden flashes of insight that came into your life that you perhaps did not yet understand. Those events may take on new relevance or now make sense in new ways as this opposition carries the story forward. It may also be that what happened back in May now demands a response.
The Moon begins its journey through Aquarius with a trine to Mars in Libra. Aquarius is a fixed air sign, lifting us up into an aerial view so that we can clarify our understanding of what can’t make sense when we’re caught up in the details. Aquarius shifts attention away from the individual in the here and now and toward what might be possible for the collective in futures we are just beginning to consider. Mars in Libra, the warrior compelled to work across coalition and solidarity, reminds us to work together across our differences. This aspect reminds me of Audre Lorde’s words: “We have chosen each other and the edge of each other’s battles … we seek beyond history for a new and more possible meeting.” How can we choose one another and reach into one another’s struggles in order to seek a new and more possible meeting beyond any of our histories?
The Moon moves directly from its trine to Mars into a T-square with Mercury and Uranus just separating from their opposition. Whatever the content of that confrontation, we may feel it reverberating in our bodies and emotions. If unexpected sensations are breaking through the regular rhythms of your day, pay attention. Receive these gifts as important guides for making sense of where you have been and where you are going.
Finally, the Sun in Libra squares Saturn in Capricorn, and we may encounter structures or boundaries that feel as if they limit our ability to shine brightly. It may feel like a challenge to our egos. We may encounter the fear of no longer knowing exactly who we are. These experiences of fear or limitation are also our teachers. What are you learning about who you want to be or where you thrive most?
