Today the balsamic Moon in Taurus makes a sextile to Neptune in Pisces. This is a day for rest and dreaming, for drifting through fantasies and roaming gently through our imaginations. These are not idle practices; they are vital and necessary for softening and opening toward other possible worlds. As Judith Butler writes in Undoing Gender, “Fantasy is what allows us to imagine ourselves and others otherwise. Fantasy is what establishes the possible in excess of the real; it points, it points elsewhere, and when it is embodied, it brings the elsewhere home.” And as adrienne maree brown writes in Emergent Strategy, “A visionary exploration of humanity includes imagination … How do we create and proliferate a compelling vision of economies and ecologies that center humans and the natural world over the accumulation of material? We embody. We learn. We release the idea of failure, because it’s all data. But first we imagine.” As the Moon eases through this sextile to Neptune, allow yourself the diffuse space and time to access fantasy, to vision, to imagine ourselves and others otherwise, and to bring the elsewheres of our dreams, visions, and fantasies home. The Moon then makes a trine to Pluto moving retrograde through Capricorn. Deep transformation is underway when we allow ourselves these opportunities to feel and embody other possible ways of being. Again, these are not idle practices; these are parts of how we rework the ways in which power operates in our psyches, across our emotional landscapes, and throughout the hidden places of our bodies.
