Today the Moon in Pisces makes a square to the Sun in Gemini, entering the waning quarter phase. This is a time of diminishing light, letting go of what is no longer necessary, and shedding perspectives that are no longer in the interests of life. The Moon makes sextiles to Pluto and Jupiter, both retrograde in Capricorn. As we allow what has been to pass away, it becomes the compost in which new possibilities may take root and grow. Mars perfects its conjunction to Neptune in Pisces, and we find motivation and drive for action and change in the deep waters of our dreams. Audre Lorde writes in Sister Outsider, “The white fathers told us: I think, therefore I am. The Black mother within each of us—the poet—whispers in our dreams: I feel, therefore I can be free … we must constantly encourage ourselves and each other to attempt the heretical actions that our dreams imply, and so many of our old ideas disparage.” Listen to the voice that whispers in your dreams that you can be free. Remember that freedom is a constant struggle (Angela Davis) and nobody’s free until everybody’s free (Fannie Lou Hamer), then attempt the heretical actions that your dreams inspire. The Moon ingresses into Aries and directly into a sextile with Saturn retrograde in Aquarius. As we stoke the fires of action and activation, remember to do so with deliberate devotion to the long and steady work of building worlds to come. Take action today, and know that the effects of such actions belong to the immense labor that has come before and all the labor that will come after.
