Today the Moon in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus. The Moon is fallen in Scorpio, and from this challenged place, it comes into direct confrontation with the planet of revolution and. It is from the lowest places, from the lived, embodied experiences of the most marginalized, that we must mobilize revolution, building from the bottom up by primarily addressing the needs of the most oppressed. The Moon then makes a trine to its ruler Mars in Scorpio, lending assertion and direction to struggles that may feel submerged beneath depths within which it is difficult to navigate. Venus moving retrograde in Gemini makes a conjunction with the Sun—a condition called cazimi, as Venus moves from its place as an evening star to a morning star. The cazimi is a moment of clarity and purification within the retrograde cycle. Today we may suddenly recognize some part of what these weeks are teaching us. In Gemini, such lessons may center on the vitality of difference within the relations that constitute us. Audre Lorde writes in “Age, Race, Class, and Sex: Women Redefining Difference”: “Certainly there are very real differences between us … But it is not those differences between us that are separating us. It is rather our refusal to recognize those differences, and to examine the distortions which result from our misnaming them and their effects upon human behavior and expectation.” How might we come into more ethical and loving relations by recognizing and affirming our differences, not as that which separate us, but a dynamic force propelling us toward more possibilities? Finally, the Moon in Scorpio makes a trine to Neptune in Pisces. This aspect invites us to rest as part of the revolution, to dream as strategy for making demands of our collective future, and for feeling that we are part of a movement that is larger than any one of us.
