As the Moon continues to move through Virgo, it makes trines to the Sun and its ruler Mercury in Capricorn. What would it take for the work you are doing to be life-affirming? What do you need to communicate or express in order to feel supported and valued in the tasks that are expected of you? In writing about women, wages, and housework, Silvia Federici suggests, “The things we have to prove are our capacity to expose what we are already doing, what capital is doing to us and our power in the struggle against it.” She describes the exploitative conditions of invisible domestic labor without wages and demands a feminist revolution of wages for housework, writing, “We want to call work what is work so that eventually we might rediscover what is love and create what will be our sexuality which we have never known.” Following the lead of this feminist critique of labor, as the Moon moves through these trines to the Sun and Mercury, we may contemplate and communicate the work we are no longer willing to do, and the ways to bring the work we are doing into alignment with our well-being. The Moon then ingresses into Libra, emphasizing connection, harmony, and just social relations. However, the Moon does not have reception from its ruler Venus as it moves through Libra—and it will not have reception from Mars and Jupiter as it moves through Scorpio and Sagittarius later in the week. The Moon’s sustained aversion to its domicile rulers gives the week a feeling of getting by without much support. Finally, Venus in Pisces makes a sextile to Uranus in Taurus. The revolutionary impulse of Uranus may inspire radical acts of care and daring experiments with pleasure that dissolve our perceived limitations of self and other.
