Today the Moon makes conjunctions to Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. These conjunctions ask us to confront abuse and also to move toward responsibility and accountability. Breaking with the fear and shame that continue to surround the topic of abuse, Kai Cheng Thom writes, “Perhaps most secret and shameful of all is the fear that we, ourselves, are or have been abusive—the fear that we could be those villains, those monsters in the night. Nobody wants to be ‘an abuser.’ No one wants to admit that they have hurt someone, especially when so many of us have been hurt ourselves. But the truth is that abusers and survivors of abuse do not exist, and have never existed, in a dichotomy: sometimes, hurt people hurt people.” Today we may be initiated into processes of not only acknowledging the harm that we have survived but also the harm that we have inflicted. How might we each begin to recognize and accept accountability for the harm that we have done? Jupiter in Capricorn then makes a sextile to Neptune in Pisces. While Jupiter is in its fall or depression in Capricorn, we may feel the limitations and scarcity of possibilities available to us. Neptune invites us back into dreaming and visioning beyond the borders of what seems possible right now. How might you nourish your long-term growth with visions and fantasies of that which you yearn to bring into being? The Moon ingresses into Aquarius and soon after makes a square to Uranus in Taurus. In the process of acknowledging harm and accepting responsibility, old patterns must be broken, opening up new ways of seeing and thinking. Such breakdowns or breakthroughs may be uncomfortable or disruptive, but the established paradigms are no longer working. Learning to become intimate with discomfort is a prerequisite for co-creating new worlds.
