Today the Moon in Capricorn makes a trine to Venus in Taurus and a sextile to Neptune in Pisces. While the Moon may struggle in Capricorn—the sign of its antithesis or detriment—Venus is strong in its domicile of Taurus. This trine offers generous support to the Moon, reminding us to prioritize pleasure and nourishing physical experiences in the midst of challenges. As many of us are facing more solitude and isolation due to COVID-19, it is even more important that we remember the importance of pleasure, (self-)touch, eating food that will support us, and staying committed to the well-being of our bodies. Under the conditions of increasing physical distancing, what practices can you maintain to invest in your erotic wellness and feeling good? Neptune in Pisces beckons us toward non-ordinary reality and altered states of consciousness. As we spend more time on our own, this aspect suggests making time for meditation and rituals practices for shifting consciousness, connecting to invisible experiences that exceed rational descriptions of the world, and perhaps partnering with substances and plant companions for experiencing our bodies in more expansive ways. Such altered states hold the capacity to dissolve what might seem like fixed boundaries, eroding our sense of separation as we connect to ancestors, sacred elements, guides or deities, the tangible and intangible world around us, and even one another in practices that fold across time and space. If you are feeling the struggle of separation and isolation, how can you use today to reconnect to your own body and pleasures, and also to shift into states of consciousness in which you are deeply connected to collectivities that cannot be undone be regulating physical contact and distance?
