In the very first minutes of Wednesday, the Moon in Gemini opposes Mars in Sagittarius. This aspect challenges us to find balance between our inquisitive, nurturing, receptive instincts for caretaking and our grand, expansive, assertive, willpower. Can we temper our own relentless striving with curiosity, with sensitive listening to our own bodies and how others are expressing their needs as well? Mercury in Pisces makes a sextile to Uranus in Taurus, and we may anticipate news, messages, or ideas that cannot actually be anticipated in advance. Notice what words or exchanges come into your life today that potentially disrupt what you were thinking and open up new possibilities for how to proceed. The Moon in Gemini makes a square to Venus in Pisces. In Hellenistic astrology, this is a condition of bonification, the Moon overcome by exalted Venus, and we may find immense support from those around us or those we love. If there is a challenge to this aspect, it may take the form of asking for what we need in order to feel safe and secure. The Moon then ingresses into its domicile of Cancer, moving swiftly into a sextile to Uranus and a trine to Mercury. In Cancer, the Moon has the resources needed into order to nurture and nourish. We may feel more sensitive and capable of caring for others and ourselves. Revolutionary Uranus may inspire radically innovative practices of care. In Revolutionary Mothering, Alexis Pauline Gumbs writes, “In order to collectively figure out how to sustain and support our evolving species, in order to participate in and demand a society where people help to create each other instead of too often destroying each other, we need to look at the practice of creating, nurturing, affirming, and supporting life that we call mothering.” What revolutionary approaches to creating, nurturing, affirming, and supporting life might you put into practice today? Mercury in Pisces trine the Moon in Cancer invites us to share the wisdom of our feelings, to translate and transmute our practices of care into practices of self-care, to learn from our practices of self-care what we can ask for and offer to others.
