Today the Moon in Aquarius makes a square to Uranus in Taurus. Revolution that rejects and disrupts the stable ground of what has been is finally breaking through the surface. It makes sense that our bodies will be feeling this disruption and perhaps even unrest as well. What would it take to stay with the discomfort of change, to resist the urge to numb or repress and instead become caring attendants to the revolution that is happening within the microcosms of our bodies along with the macrocosms of our societies? The Moon then makes at trine to Venus retrograde in Gemini. Venus’ retrograde journey is asking us to recognize that how we practice love in our intimate relationships is not separate from the kind of world in which we are attempting to be loving. bell hooks writes in All About Love, “Without justice there can be no 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.” In order to love, we must pursue justice, and in order to pursue justice, we must be willing to tell the truth, to see past our projections, and to engage with one another and our world in practices of radical honesty. We are living through a moment of profound truth-telling at the scale of our societies—naming and protesting the systemic harms of racism and anti-Blackness within the United States and beyond; in order to sustain this movement, we must be willing to practice these same kinds of honesty in how we love ourselves and one another as well.
