March 13: The moon is trine Neptune, and sextile Jupiter



The moon is sextile Mars at 8:00 a.m., and trine Neptune at 8:53 a.m.


The day begins with an activating, yet fleeting sextile between the moon in mysterious Scorpio, and Mars in steady Capricorn. It’s an interesting connection since Mars rules Scorpio, so it’s a supportive blend of emotion and tempered disciplined drive. It could give the feeling of emotional courage now when expressing ourselves or working on our emotional health. Strong words may still come forward today, but these will likely be constructive. Shortly after, the moon shifts into a trine with Neptune in compassionate Pisces, offering an enigmatic note of creativity and vision to the morning.


The moon is sextile Jupiter at 2:14 p.m.


As the day unfolds, the Scorpio moon turns its penetrating glow toward expansive Jupiter in Capricorn, forming a sextile aspect that blends these two planetary forces in a supportive way. The deep, reflective, and potentially intuitive mood of the day is coming into phase with all of the planets in constructive earth signs at the moment, of which there are many, hinting that any inner investigative work we are engaged in now is supportive of growth and progress that feels useful, and tangible. The sextile with Jupiter is very affirming of our inquiry.

The moon is trine the sun at 5:47 p.m., and sextile Pluto at 6:53 p.m.


In the evening, the moon comes into a trine aspect with the sun in compassionate Pisces, marking the waning gibbous phase of the moon. Also known as the disseminating moon, it’s a time in the lunar cycle when we are putting to use the fruits of the full moon, and applying any insight gained along the way to our lives. Since this trine between the luminaries of day and night is in emotive water, it signals a harmonious coming together of our perceptions, as well as body sensations. It is a good opportunity for empathy and understanding. The sextile of the moon with Pluto in Capricorn shortly after hints that this inquiry has long-term transformational value.
