After nearly five months moving retrograde, today Saturn stations direct. After spending the time to reflect and review the structures that we’ve built and the systems that we have put into place, Saturn’s direct motion will ask that we begin to put that knowledge into action—demanding clear boundaries that are not closed borders, monuments to the marginalized that are not built on the backs of the oppressed, and systems that support and sustain life rather than grinding out extracted labor and joy. The Moon makes a trine to Saturn, bringing all of these issues back to the body. What does it feel like to move within, between, and against the limits of what has been as we work toward what is possible in worlds to come? The Moon carries this into a grand earth trine—Moon in Taurus trine Mars in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn, all at 20º. These aspects bring the pleasures of the body into harmony with the drive and momentum to take action, channeling our intentions into relations of power in which we are not simply passive recipients of abuse. This is a signature for pleasure activism, what adrienne maree brown describes as “learning to make justice and liberation the most pleasurable experiences we can have on this planet.” As the Moon moves into its disseminating phase, it’s time to gather and share the resources we’ve been given.
