Today the Moon in Aries squares its ruler Mars in Capricorn. This is a challenging aspect for the Moon in the final degrees of Aries as Mars overcomes with the force of severing and separating. Starting the day with a description of potential bodily harm is cause for caution and care. Then the Moon ingresses into Taurus, the sign of its exaltation, where it is co-present with its ruler Venus. In Taurus, the Moon draws us back down to stable ground, where we can feel held and supported in tending to our physical needs, whether recovery, repair, or pleasure. The Moon moves almost immediately through a square to Saturn, a firm insistence to slow down, address our fears, make a plan, and move deliberately toward that which can support us. But even the best laid plans can go awry: as the Moon separates from Saturn, it applies to a conjunction to Uranus, destabilizing and disrupting the careful plans we had put into place. This conjunction can describe spikes in anxiety in the face of uncertainty, but know that this will pass, and the Moon has a lot of support in its exaltation with reception from Venus. It is likely that all you need in order to be well is actually already available to you. If you find yourself encountering fears or anxieties, return back to this reassurance that you have so much more of what you need right now than whatever your fears are telling you. Drop your attention in deep. Feel the stable earth of your bones supporting you from beneath your flesh. Lay your body on the ground and feel the whole earth rising up to meet you.
