March 11: The sun is sextile Jupiter



The moon is square Mars at 5:06 a.m.


The day begins with an aspect that can symbolize emotional friction and unease when the Libra moon forms a square with Mars in Capricorn. The moon rules emotions, where Mars rules confrontation and conflict. With the square aspect highlighting a potential for these to be working at cross purposes, the stage is set for misunderstandings and stand-offs. Both are cardinal signs of leadership, so our feelings and drive may be struggling with each other for dominance, or we may have an emotional power struggle with someone today. This aspect hopefully brings a topic up to the surface to be resolved. It may take the whole day to sort when the moon also comes into a square with both, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn, in the early and late afternoon.

This shifts the mood into one of optimism, as the sun and Jupiter blend to open our awareness to opportunities of growth and expansion when following our intuition. Jupiter’s expansive forces are focused and grounded in constructive Capricorn, and the creative and compassionate forces awakened in us this season help us to materialize our highest aspirations.
