Today the Moon in Cancer makes a trine to Neptune in Pisces. What are the dreams we need to nurture and protect in order to remain in alignment with our well-being? The Moon then makes an opposition to Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. In order to dream and vision for new possible worlds, we must actively confront the hidden and even unconscious ways in which we are still invested in our own oppression: the perpetuation of empire, the ongoing conditions of colonization, the persistence of white supremacy, misogyny and sexism that is rooted in despising the feminine—even our own femininity—which is also the rot in which homophobia and transphobia flourish, our attachments to capitalist exploitation, our insistence on the human as distinct from and more important than everything else on this planet. We must do the work that Audre Lorde gives to us in “The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House”: “I urge each of us here to reach down into that deep place of knowledge inside herself and touch that terror and loathing of any difference that lives there. See whose face it wears. Then the personal as the political can begin to illuminate all our choices.” As the Moon then makes an opposition to Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn, we have the opportunity to grow, to integrate that terror of difference, and to move from fear and loathing toward more substantial justice in whatever ways we can.
