There are busy skies today. The Moon in Libra makes squares to Pluto and Jupiter, both retrograde in Capricorn. These are potentially challenging aspects, as our embodiment of collectivity and solidarity may be at cross-purposes with the authorities established within the systems we inherit. The Moon then ingresses into Scorpio, the sign of its fall or depression, but with reception from Mars in Pisces. Defenses may arise as we are pulled into the churning tumult of emotional tides, the force of which comes from our most vulnerable places finding resonance with collective rage. Audre Lorde writes in “Eye to Eye: Black Women, Hatred, and Anger,” “My Black woman’s anger is a molten pond at the core of me, my most fiercely guarded secret. I know how much of my life as a powerful feeling woman is laced through with this net of rage. It is an electric thread woven into every emotional tapestry upon which I set the essentials of my life—a boiling hot spring likely to erupt at any point, leaping out of my consciousness like a fire on the landscape.” If you are not Black, if you are not a Black woman, if you haven’t not known this molten pond of anger, now is the time to listen deeply and allow yourself to feel with those for whom the boiling hot springs are erupting in this time. Venus retrograde in Gemini makes a square to Mars in Pisces. We may be asked to return to sites of injury in order to do the relational work of repair; if we do not, the relations may be severed. Finally, the Moon makes a trine to Mercury in Cancer, reminding us to remain sensitive to pain that is not our own and to amplify the voices of those whose voices are not being heard.
