After separating from its late-night conjunction to Uranus, the Moon in Taurus opposes Venus in Scorpio. With the Moon in its exaltation coming to face its ruler Venus—which is in detriment in Scorpio—we may feel challenged to create balance between how we relate to our own bodies and how we bring the depth of our own experience into our relationships. Venus in Scorpio is teaching us to allow more of ourselves to be loved, especially those parts that we might believe make us unlovable, and this opposition asks us to celebrate our bodies, especially the parts that carry shame or neglect. Learning to love all the parts of your body might begin with allowing yourself to build a relationship with the parts you might rather ignore. Can you start with simply feeling, touching, and paying attention to more of your body? What if you touched yourself in the ways that you would want someone who loved you to touch you? How does that feel? As the Moon then moves into a trine to Saturn in Capricorn, we might ask what a long-term practice of celebrating and enjoying our bodies might require. What if you were disciplined in your practices of pleasure and self-love? What kind of foundation might that create for a new relationship to your body? Finally, Mercury in Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces, setting sail on the seas of inspiration. Take time to put your fantasies and dreams into words that you can then share with yourself and with others.
