The Moon is in Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac. After yesterday’s Full Moon in Aquarius shaking us free from old notions of selfishness, we are ready to do some tender healing. It’s no mistake that the news these days is clouded with the exposure of corruption in this world. That’s the power of the Capricorn south node commingling with Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. Topping that all off with a Full Moon in Aquarius—the water bearer, the visionary of the future—we cannot pull our gaze away from corruption.

But after the corruption is exposed, we must integrate and heal. This is what today’s Moon in Pisces brings to us. The Moon is still bright, and as she drifts through the sign of the twinned fish, we are asked to find forgiveness for ourselves, our past traumatic pain, our reactions to that hurt. Tell yourself it is ok. Be still. Breathe.

Mercury squares off with Uranus this morning, bringing intense and perhaps even shocking news. Mercury is the messenger, and brings us information. Uranus acts similarly. We imagine them as two musical notes, an octave apart. Same note, different registers. Mercury brings language, Uranus brings language+electricity. Keep your ears open, look for pathways forward.

Soonafter the Moon sparks a sextile to Uranus, further radicalizing our perspectives. The soft Moon in Pisces is still tender, tired, slow, from the fullness of yesterday’s energy. Where can we find expansion, now? Where can we say to ourselves, this is where the future lies? We are encouraged by today’s astrology to find new ways inward, downward, forward.
