Today the Moon in Sagittarius makes a trine to Mars in Aries then opposes Venus in Gemini. Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign ruled by Jupiter, currently fallen and retrograde in Capricorn. We may be working to build heat and momentum toward transformation and freedom, but it could feel as if there is not yet enough support for the changes that we are seeking, or that there is delay in seeing the results we seek. The Moon’s trine to Mars in Aries can signal resources for taking charge and moving ahead coming from another part of the sky. We may find the initiative we need to assert ourselves and propel movement in new directions. But this is not without potential conflict. As we charge ahead with sharp momentum, our bonds of unity and solidarity may be stretched to their limits. We may be confronted with real disagreements and contrary perspectives within our relationships. Sara Ahmed writes in Living a Feminist Life: “Relationships can break too; we know this. Have you ever been with someone, someone whom you are trying to love, trying not to give up on, and they say something that you find unbearable? You can hear glass shatter; that point when you realize that what you had is something that cannot be reassembled … things fall apart. Perhaps then feminism is how we pick up the pieces.” Sometimes as we try to move together and create change together, we break apart. Something shatters. Something cannot be reassembled. Perhaps what matters most as we encounter these points of opposition and conflict is how we move toward repair, how we pick up the pieces and make them into another kind of bond.
