Today the Moon in Virgo forms a T-square—opposing Neptune in Pisces, both squaring Venus in Gemini. What are our fantasies of ideal love and what is the practical implementation of steps that are in alignment with such ideals? This T-square is a configuration of hard aspects between mutable signs, but the squares from Venus—overcoming the Moon and hurling rays back to Neptune—are a condition of bonification in Hellenistic astrology. What are our ideals for love, and how might they be pushing us toward practical change? bell hooks writes, “A love ethic presupposes that everyone has the right to be free, to live fully and well. To bring a love ethic to every dimension of our lives, our society would need to embrace change … We do this by choosing to work with individuals we admire and respect; by committing to give our all to relationships; by embracing a global vision wherein we see our lives and our fate as intimately connected to those of everyone else on the planet.” The Moon then moves through trines to Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn. When we take the steps to live in accordance with our ethical ideals of love, we commit ourselves to transformation that requires the undoing of so many ways that power operates on our intimate and global scales, but doing so is also necessary for the deliberate, incremental growth toward the kinds of worlds in which we want to live. In order to enact change at the largescale, we must be willing to practice living in ways that align with our love ethic in those relationships most immediately at hand.
