Today Mercury in Scorpio makes its third and final sextile to Saturn in Capricorn in this retrograde cycle. Now direct, Mercury may motivate us to clearly communicate our boundaries—what is and is not okay for us—and to ask for the support that we need. Saturn can also signify our fears and our limitations, so this sextile could offer opportunities to address the sources of our fears and anxieties, to express where we feel our resources are limited, and to dispel misconceptions about our capabilities and incapabilities. The Moon finishes its time in Capricorn with no major aspects, then ingresses into Aquarius where it makes a square to Uranus in Taurus. Aquarius invites a kind of soaring detachment, a view from above, which can give us distance and perspective on the crises and challenges that we’re facing in our lives and in our world. But Uranus in Taurus demands the revolutionary potential of grounding ourselves in the earth, planting our feet, and pulling our analyses down into the lived realities of our terran lives—a view from somewhere rather than a view from anywhere or nowhere, what Donna Haraway describes as “situated knowledges.” Today we may feel challenged to bring our big-picture perspectives into our embodied material lives. What is the use of sweeping theoretical models and understandings if we cannot put them into practice in physical, earthly ways?
