Today is a busy day for the Moon: first it makes conjunctions to both Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn before ingressing into Aquarius and making a conjunction to Saturn and a trine to Mercury in Gemini. Pluto draws us into our own corporeal depths, and Jupiter encourages the fullness and cohesion of the body. What practices will support you in moving into your inner underworlds and becoming more wholly your own potentialities? Alkistis Dimech suggests, “My practice reaffirms the authority of the body: it is first of all the body that communicates, revealing its inner life, its affectivity, its vulnerability, as well as its strength … For me, to dance it to initiate myself into the body’s mysteries; to know myself in the process of becoming and to know the world in its becoming.” Whether through dance or ritual or some other process, these conjunctions suggest an initiation into the mysteries of your own body. As the Moon moves into Aquarius and into conjunction with Saturn, now moving retrograde, we may encounter the drag of old ways of being, structures of embodiment that limit or restrict our becoming. But then the trine to Mercury invites the body to speak, to communicate and transmit the wisdom and insight that it holds. Finally, Mercury in Taurus makes a trine to Saturn in Aquarius. We may be called upon to advocate for our own boundaries, to articulate the parameters of what is and is not permissible. Remember, as adrienne maree brown writes, “Your strong and solid no makes way for your deep, authentic yes. I was taught this late in life: ‘No is a complete sentence.’” As you become an initiate of the authority of your own body, be prepared to clearly convey your no in order to trust and affirm your deep, authentic yes.
