March 1: The moon enters Gemini, and is square Mercury Rx



The moon is trine Saturn at 7:52 a.m.


The exalted Taurus moon forms an exact earth trine with Saturn in its powerful home sign of Capricorn early this morning. The lunar forces of emotional awareness blend cooperatively with the Saturnian forces of discipline and perseverance now, setting a tone for grounded clarity and constructive action. The moon and Saturn are both in receptive signs, so any work we begin or continue today comes from a well-considered position after hearing all sides and considering all options. Trines are all about flow and ease, yet in earth signs, the ease feels less impulsive and more like slowly easing out of being stuck in the mud to move forward steadily.

The moon enters Gemini at 11:21 a.m.


Just before noon, the lunar mood ramps up again as the moon leaves the abundant, fertile ground of Taurus to enter the swift and speedy territory of Gemini. During the first quarter lunar phase our energy may be starting to pick up a little and our awareness may flow outward into conversations and curiosities for the next two days. Where the Taurus moon helps us feel into our sensual embodiment, the Gemini moon activates the intellect and may kick up an unsettled flurry of activity that will carry over into the start of the new week.


The moon is square Mercury Rx at 3:05 p.m.


The flurry of activity that the Gemini moon may inspire hits a little friction and edge late this afternoon as she forms a square aspect with Gemini’s ruler, Mercury. Mercury is currently in sensitive and soulful Pisces, so some emotional friction may enter our conversations this evening. Stops and starts in expression may interrupt the deep sharing that we aspire to do, perhaps due to distractions and a feeling of having too much on the mind. It’s important to remember that Mercury is still retrograde until March 9, so patience and creativity are needed to adapt to any miscommunications that may peak tonight.
