This is a busy day for the Moon in Capricorn as it moves through conjunctions to Mars, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn, and a sextile to the Sun in Pisces, before finally ingressing into Aquarius. The Moon describes our instinctual needs for safety, security, and care, and this series of aspects describe a potentially tumultuous path toward meeting these needs. The conjunction to Mars can agitate our tempers, sparking conflict either with others or within ourselves as we move through a challenging situation. Jupiter offers support and relief, but from a diminished capacity; we may have access to more than enough, but we may also be challenged to ration and take care of how we utilize the resources available to us. Pluto not only intensifies whatever we are already feeling, but also turns up the pressure as our current circumstances begin to unearth traces of trauma or abuses of power from within the depths of our own bodies. We may not feel like we have an outlet for that which is getting uncovered and brought up. The sextile to the Sun in Pisces revitalizes us as we concern ourselves not only with our own needs but the needs of others as well. Sometimes we cultivate more care in our lives by offering more care to others. Saturn enforces restriction and isolation, and as we globally move deeper into practices of what we’re calling social distancing, we may begin to feel the effects of this distancing in our physical and emotional bodies. What structures or practices can you put into place to address your emotional and physical needs under these escalating conditions? Finally, the Moon moves into Aquarius, reconnecting us to the big picture and inviting us to strategize and plan for unknown futures in the making. We do not know what the future holds, so how can we begin to formulate the collective systems that we will need in order to support us as we move through such uncertainty?
