Today the Moon in Libra opposes its ruler Venus in Aries. Venus in Aries can describe the passionate charge to pursue that which we desire—sometimes without the stamina to follow through—and it can also describe the tension between our tendencies toward union and our impulses to individuate. Opposing the Moon, we may be challenged to co-create interdependence that does not elide our differences. Audre Lorde writes, “Difference must be not merely tolerated, but must be seen as a fund of necessary polarities between which our creativity can spark like a dialectic. Only then does the necessity for interdependency become unthreatening. Only within that interdependency of different strengths, acknowledged and equal, can the power to seek new ways of being in the world generate, as well as the courage and sustenance to act where there are no charters.” How might you forge interdependencies with others that rely on acknowledged and equal differences as a source of creative power, where interdependency need not threaten any one’s personal sovereignty? The Moon then squares Jupiter in Capricorn. Jupiter is in its fall in Capricorn, but hurls its rays back to support and affirm the Moon as it cultivates connections with respect and harmony, holding different perspectives, needs, and desires in balance in order to sustain our bonds.
