Following yesterday’s New Moon, today the Moon makes no aspects for most of the day. Tonight, the Moon makes a square to Jupiter and then Pluto in Capricorn. The square from Jupiter is a condition of bonification in Hellenistic astrology, offering the support that is available from fallen Jupiter. Aries has a tendency to burn hot and fast and then exhaust the available fuel needed to sustain follow-through and completion. Jupiter in Capricorn reminds us to temper our impulses with both attention to our long-term goals and gratitude for the resources that we can access. The Moon square Pluto may bring up compulsive or obsessive behavior, potentially driven by feelings we have buried or repressed, such as shame, guilt, jealously, fear, or despair. There can be a destructive or self-destructive quality to this aspect. But Pluto is also the keeper of the underworld, processes of death and regeneration. How might you use this time when we are still in the dark of the Moon to let go of those feelings that drive your behavior in ways that are not in alignment with who you want to be? What would it require to compassionately but emphatically put those feelings to rest, to offer them to the ground, where they can be transformed and made useful again?
