March 31: The moon enters Cancer, and Mars is conjunct Saturn



The moon enters Cancer at 4:43 a.m.

In the early morning, the moon moves out of airy and playful Gemini, and into its home sign of nurturing and protective Cancer. The emotional tone is potent, tuning awareness and energies inward to the inner receptive plane. The profound swells of feeling that could be happening for many of us are amplified as the moon conjoins the lunar north node at 9:49 a.m. Any planet that crosses the lunar north node becomes blown up and intensified, and in this case, it may heighten vulnerability. There may be a strong urge to retreat and reflect today, which is further prompted by the moon’s inconjunct aspect with Mars and Saturn in Aquarius. This creates a dissonance today that asks us to pause, to honor what is coming up, to better understand the source.

Mars is conjunct Saturn at 11:31 am

Just before noon, Mars and Saturn merge in Aquarius, bringing action and discipline together in this intellectual, discerning sign. There could be a great initiative sparked today that evokes societal change, confronting what we can no longer deny. This could be a great moment for personal and collective activism, where we are called to take up a charge or cause that we feel connected to. This conjunction reminds us to be the change in the world that we would like to see, and that we can no longer take a passive role in our destiny.

The moon is sextile Uranus at 2:24 p.m.

The potent and magnetic moon in Cancer forms a collaborative sextile with radical Uranus in Taurus this afternoon. Where the Mars-Saturn conjunction is a call to action today, this moon-Uranus sextile helps us tap into our deep feelings of empathy and compassion to discover what it is that evokes our protective, revolutionary spirit. It’s from this deep well of sincerity and caring that we can act in the world, putting our whole heart on the line, to show up where it really matters now. These ways of showing up could be very public, but they may also be very private, and intimate, supporting growth and change by emotionally supporting those who are vulnerable now.
