March 30: Mars enters Aquarius

March 30: Mars enters Aquarius



The moon is square Neptune at 8:10 a.m.

Monday begins with the lively Gemini moon in a catalyzing square aspect with oceanic Neptune in Pisces. This is an aspect of amplifying emotions, illusions, and delusions to some extent, potentially sending us on a spiral into examining what is real, and what is a projection. The moon in Gemini speaks of a lunar mood that is dispersive and curious, with feeling states shifting and morphing faster than we can process as Neptune adds a nebulous, disorienting haze to it all. It could be an interesting opportunity to channel what could feel confusing into a grounding, creative activity, but it may challenge us to be clear and concise when expressing our needs and thoughts.

Mars enters Aquarius at 12:43 p.m.

Shortly after noon, Mars, the planet of combat and confrontation, leaves its steady exalted position in Capricorn, to enter the cool and inquisitive world of Aquarius. Mars turns its warrior’s focus away from the matters of structure and materiality, toward the topics of social systems and justice. Aquarius has the powers of detachment and objectivity on its side, amplifying its ability to be coldly discerning while being empowered by the drive and initiative of Mars. This is a formidable placement, that can set the tone for discussions, debates, and actions on societal matters we can no longer ignore.

The moon is inconjunct Jupiter at 5:52 p.m.

The airy, mutable activity of the Gemini moon is inconjunct the steady expansion of Jupiter in Capricorn this evening. The emotional tone of the moment is out of phase with the measured and somewhat conservational growth of this year, perhaps amplifying some nervousness and anxiety for a moment. This theme continues as the moon forms an inconjunct with Pluto in authoritative Capricorn about an hour later, emphasizing the dissonance between the current mood, and the more serious matters of our times.
