The major aspect of today is the Sun in Cancer opposing Pluto retrograde in Capricorn. This opposition is the culmination point of a story that began when the Sun was conjunct Pluto on January 13, analogous to the Full Moon in the lunation cycle. It is a face-off between the source of life and vitality and the ruler of the underworld, between visibility and what is hidden, between radiance and decay. We must confront the powers that constitute lives as unlivable, disposable, or unworthy of grieving. Judith Butler writes in Notes Toward a Performative Theory of Assembly, “For when bodies gather as they do to express their indignation and to enact their plural existence in public space, they are also making broader demands: they are demanding to be recognized, to be valued, they are exercising a right to appear, to exercise freedom, and they are demanding a livable life.” As we continue to persist through these unprecedented times, how are you continuing to demand livable lives—for ourselves as well as those who are most marginalized? Then throughout the day, the Moon in Taurus moves through a series of supportive aspects: sextile Neptune retrograde in Pisces, trine Jupiter retrograde in Capricorn, sextile the Sun in Cancer, trine Pluto retrograde in Cancer, and finally trine Saturn retrograde in Capricorn. Alongside the Sun/Pluto opposition, the themes of the day may include: reconnecting to old dreams and fantasies, observing how much growth has taken place, clarifying the significance of what we are witnessing, and affirming the boundaries that allow us to remain grounded and compassionate.
