Today the Moon in Aries makes a sextile to Venus moving retrograde in Gemini. Ruled by Mars, the Moon in Aries may feel inflamed by anger or aggression that has gone unexpressed. As we continue through this Venus retrograde journey, reviewing our beliefs and practices of love, we must be willing to process and release our anger. bell hooks writes, “Much of the anger and rage we feel about emotional lack is released when we forgive ourselves and others. Forgiveness opens up and prepares us to receive love … Forgiveness is an act of generosity. It requires that we place releasing someone else from the prison of their guilt or anguish over our feelings of outrage or anger.” The Moon then makes squares to Pluto and Jupiter, both retrograde in Capricorn. Moving through forgiveness has the capacity to uncover and transform deep, old wounds and injuries, to bring back together parts of ourselves and others that have felt broken or shattered. Then the Moon ingresses into Taurus, the sign of its exaltation, where we can ground deep into the stability available within our own bodies. Listen to your bones, the bedrock of your flesh. As you move through and release the anger or rage that Aries may have described, feel into these patient, earthly parts of yourself—the parts that know how to abide, the parts that have always been supporting you.
