Today the Moon in Aquarius makes a trine to Venus who just stationed retrograde in Gemini yesterday. This trine reminds us that how we practice love in our intimate relationships scales up to how we practice community in our societies. bell hooks writes, “When we see love as the will to nurture one’s own or another’s spiritual growth, revealed through acts of care, respect, knowing, and assuming responsibility, the foundation of all love in our life is the same … While we will necessarily behave differently depending on the nature of a relationship, or have varying degrees of commitment, the values that inform our behavior, when rooted in a love ethic, are always the same for any interaction.” In order to live well with one another, we must behave in ways that are rooted in a love ethic, whatever the relationship or form of interaction—prioritizing care, respect, knowing, and assuming responsibility. The Moon then makes a square to the Sun in Taurus, entering the waning quarter phase. This is a time of re-evaluating and letting go of that which no longer serves us, potentially breaking from the familiar in order to move in the direction of intuition. Jupiter in Capricorn stations retrograde—the third planet to station retrograde this week. As Jupiter moves backwards through Capricorn, we may be reviewing and assessing what resources are available to us, how we have made use of those resources, and how to better utilize that which is available in order to support our long-term growth. Finally, the Moon ingresses into Pisces, with reception from Jupiter. In Pisces, we may find ourselves awash in feelings that are bigger than ourselves, coasting on waves of empathy and compassion that bring us into deeper connection with others.
