March 7: The moon is inconjunct the sun, Mars, Neptune, and Jupiter



Saturday holds a potentially strange, quizzical lunar mood as the Leo moon makes many inconjunct aspects as it transits through the sky. The inconjunct means that there is a lack of connection between planets in signs that have nothing elementally or modally in common, yet this is in and of itself an interesting phenomenon to note. Most of the planets are currently in earth and water signs, so the Leo moon—with its passionate and emotional symbolism—is coasting adrift at odds with the material concerns of the moment. It speaks to a somewhat rebellious mood and a feeling of trying, but perhaps not knowing how to connect. As the day unfolds, it’s an opportunity to sit with any ambivalence or restlessness, to understand what is brewing below the surface.
