The Moon starts the day in Capricorn making a sextile to Mercury moving retrograde through Scorpio. Mercury is looking for answers, and the Moon—in its antithesis in Capricorn—may feel laden with the weight of the distant past. What are the histories we have taken for granted? How can we locate them in our bodies? If we look to our pasts, what are the questions we need to ask in order to excavate the ways our deep feeling structures have been shaped by material practices that extend across generations? It’s not an accident that you feel this way. Your ability or inability to find words to express what you feel most deeply has been shaped by centuries and centuries of social structures, including colonization, empire, patriarchy, and white supremacy. It is necessary for us to feel and articulate all that what has been called civilization would make insensate. The Moon then ingresses into Aquarius, giving us the distance and breathing room to make sense of what we’re experiencing within a larger context. The Moon makes a sextile to Venus in Sagittarius, reminding us that we are not alone in this. Part of opening up to a wider perspective is recognizing our place within the larger world. Instead of looking around to prove to yourself that you are alone, what if you looked outward to see all the ways in which you are already connected? The Moon in Aquarius then makes a square to Uranus in Taurus. This is the waning square of this Luna/Uranus cycle, meaning that the disruptions being described here are more likely to be the ways in which your implementation of new relationships to your own materiality—including your body—demands that other processes of which you are a part must now change as well.
