Today the Moon in Scorpio starts the day with a trine to Mercury in Cancer, then moves through a cluster of aspects: a sextile with Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn, a trine to Neptune retrograde in Pisces, and finally sextiles with Pluto and Saturn, both retrograde in Capricorn. The Moon in Scorpio is already deeply involved with dark, interior spaces, and with all of these aspects with planets that are also in water and earth signs—many of them retrograde—the focus today on introspection, reflection, and retreat may be immense. This could be a day for journaling, for revisiting your long-term ambitions and dreams, for confronting the ways in which you repress or police your own emotional responses, getting honest with yourself about your current internal and external conditions. All of these aspects are supportive, suggesting that if your take the time to do this interior work, you may find that you have access to resources that you did not know that you had. bell hooks writes in All About Love, “The heart of justice is truth telling, seeing ourselves and the world the way it is rather than the way we want it to be.” So many of us have learned to lie, to be dishonest with ourselves and others, to repress the truth in order to protect ourselves, to avoid being hurt or hurting others. But love and justice must grow out of truth. How might you get more honest with yourself today in order to move in alignment with what is true?
