March 26: The moon enters Taurus



The moon is square Mars at 12:16 a.m.

Overnight a rather potent and angsty planetary aspect occurs, and perhaps it’s just as well. The moon in impulsive Aries comes into a friction-causing square with Mars in Capricorn, which could stoke frustrations and emotional blow-outs for those who happen to be awake. It’s important to know these cosmic forces could be catalyzing some edgy energy right now so that we can breathe and stay in our center if any difficulties should arise. The old adage of “not going to bed angry” could be helpful, as we find a way to agree to disagree before bed. If we are feeling frustrated, it could be good to just sleep on it, as the morning holds a grounding lunar shift that supports calmer discussions and grounded perspectives.

The moon enters Taurus at 6:37 a.m.

The day begins with the moon shifting into Taurus, its beneficial sign of exaltation, and the lunar mood becomes one more conducive to nurturing ourselves after fighting some emotional battles. Sleeping in and nourishing ourselves with wholesome food could be a nice way to start the day off slowly, patiently, from a grounded position. As the morning progresses, the moon comes into a square with Saturn in objective Aquarius, and we may not be feeling very disciplined today. The moon is still very dark after the new moon, representing a time of low reserves, so some patience with ourselves may be in order.


The moon is conjunct Uranus at 4:29 p.m.

By the afternoon the moon forms a conjunction with innovative Uranus in Taurus, bringing flashes of creativity and insight to the day. We may be exploring new, inventive modalities of self-care, and receive some fresh ideas on how to honor our need for restoration. This blend of planetary forces could be very good for crafting, cooking, or artmaking, a nice time to try out some new techniques or recipes.
