Today the Moon in Cancer makes a sextile to Uranus in Taurus. This is an aspect of revolutionary mothering and revolutionary care. Alexis Pauline Gumbs writes, “The radical potential of the word ‘mother’ comes after the ‘m.’ It is the space that ‘other’ takes in our mouths when we say it. We are something else. We know it from how fearfully institutions wield social norms and try to shut us down. We know it from how we are transforming the planet with our every messy step toward making life possible. Mamas who unlearn domination by refusing to dominate their children, extended family and friends, community caregivers, radical childcare collectives, all of us breaking cycles of abuse by deciding what we want to replicate from the past and what we need to urgently transform, are m/othering ourselves.” As we practice caring for ourselves and one another, how are we refusing domination, being intentional about what we want to replicate from the past and what we need to urgently transform? The Moon in Cancer then makes a sextile to the Sun in Taurus, reminding us to be guided by that which is life-affirming. Mercury in Taurus makes a square to Saturn in Aquarius. Overcome by malefic Saturn, we may feel inhibited or prohibited from speaking or expressing ourselves. Be careful of how your thinking is being shaped or limited by your fears.
