Today the Moon in Taurus makes a series of supportive aspects, first perfecting trines to Jupiter, Mercury, and the Sun in Capricorn, then a sextile to Neptune in Pisces. In its exaltation in Taurus and configured to its ruler, the Moon is already extremely well-supported, inviting us to root down into what grounds and nourishes us. Jupiter encourages growth and coherence and invites us back into the perspective that abundance and more-than-enough are already potentials alive within our physical and emotional systems. Mercury, the planet of translation and communication, reminds us to ask for the support that we want and need, and to remain responsive to the ways that the world around us asks for support that we can offer. The Sun brings us into the path of that which is life-affirming. Take notice of how the ways you spend your day enliven or deplete you and consider how your life might be different if you were to move more toward that which enlivens. Finally, Neptune offers inspiration in the forms of dreams and fantasies. Judith Butler writes, “To posit possibilities beyond the norm or, indeed, a different future for the norm itself, is part of the work of fantasy when we understand fantasy as taking the body as a point of departure for an articulation that is not always constrained by the body as it is … fantasy is part of the articulation of the possible; it moves us beyond what is merely actual and present into a realm of possibility, the not yet actualized or the not actualizable.” What if you gave yourself time and permission to set sail through your fantasies, those that begin from the body and then carry you into possibilities beyond the norms of what is, drifting into the realms of how else we might live our embodied lives?
