Today the Moon in Capricorn makes a sextile to Neptune retrograde in Pisces, then conjunctions to Jupiter and Pluto—both retrograde in Capricorn. We are dreaming of different worlds, but we are also the worlds that have already been dreamt. We are someone else’s dream. Alexis Pauline Gumbs writes in Dub: Finding Ceremony, “you. basically our dreams were you. our nightmares too. can you imagine what it looked like from here? of course you don’t have to, do you. the space, the colors, at the same time the dullness. we dreamt and we thought it was us, but it was always you. and you dream and think that it’s you, but it’s always us. remember that.” With aspects to three planets moving retrograde, the pull backgrounds may be immense, a tide that cannot be resisted. But as we feel the reverberations of the past rippling through our bodies, don’t stop with recent memory, with familiar institutions, with abuses of power that are so persistent that we don’t know anything else. Keep moving back to those who dreamed of you, who longed for freedom that has not yet arrived. Keep dreaming their dreams, embody their longings, the ancestors who understood survival and freedom beyond white supremacy, beyond colonial imperialism, beyond police and prisons, beyond the policing of genders and the repression of desires. Connect to their power. The same tides of their dreams that carry us back to them will also carry us forward into worlds beyond what we know.
