The day begins with the Moon in Sagittarius forming a sextile to Mars in Libra. After yesterday’s Moon square Neptune, this sextile to Mars re-focuses us on our ambitions, our desires, and our drive to strive and achieve. As the Moon makes a conjunction to Jupiter in Sagittarius, open to the feeling of abundance and expansion in your own body. What if you are already more than enough? What if you already contain all that you need in order to be free? Your body is your wise teacher, and this is a moment for offering gratitude for everything that your body is teaching you. Mercury stations retrograde today around 27º Scorpio, beginning a journey of retracing its path until stationing direct on November 20. Remember, Mercury retrograde is not a time for panic and it is not a curse from the heavens. Rather, it is an invitation for reflection and review, for slowing down and reconsidering, re-reading what we have written, looking back at the things we think we understand in order to find other ways to tell those stories. In Scorpio, this process brings us back through our emotional depths, our dark and hidden places, the parts of ourselves that have been traversed by both Mercury and Venus for the last several weeks. There are things we still do not know how to say. There are ways of narrating our own stories that have not yet accounted for the parts of ourselves that we have been convinced make us unlovable. This retrograde is a journey of vulnerability and intimacy—finding how to invite others into experiences of ourselves that we do not know how to share. Be patient. Listen closely. Allow yourself to not know. As the Moon ingresses into Capricorn, we may be drawn to work that contributes to our long-term plans or building foundations to support us in the days ahead.
