Astrology for Sunday, 31 May 2020:
Today the Moon in Virgo makes trines to both Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn before ingressing into Libra. Pluto and Jupiter are both retrograde, and as the Moon completes these trines, we will be invited to reflect on the ways in which power had been used, misused, and abused within the worlds we are inheriting, as well as the forms of power we want to affirm in the worlds that we are building. As the Moon moves into Libra with reception from Venus retrograde in Gemini, we turn our attention to connections and the pursuit of justice in solidarity with others—which is always a collective process emerging throughout shared histories. Angela Davis writes, “Our histories never unfold in isolation. We cannot truly tell what we consider to be our own histories without knowing the other stories. And often we discover that those stories are actually our own stories … This is a dialectical process that requires us to constantly retell our stories, to revise them and retell them and relaunch them. We can thus not pretend that we do not know about the conjunctures of race and class and ethnicity and nationality and sexuality and ability.” The Moon then makes a trine to Saturn retrograde in Aquarius. As we live through this time of concentrated struggles for justice and demands for more livable futures, how might we revise, retell, and relaunch the histories that show that struggles for justice have been and must continue to be sustained through solidarity? The Moon makes a square to Mercury in Cancer, suggesting that we may be challenged to account for these histories and futures; if we do not know how, then we are being challenged to educate ourselves, because we can no longer pretend that we do not know.
