With a Capricorn moon I already have a Saturn-moon influence in my chart. Currently Saturn is squaring that moon, with the transiting moon conjunct. Transiting Mars conjuncts my moon. Want to hear the upshot? I don’t feel so good. Moon, Saturn, Mars backing my own moon into a corner is what it feels like. This all takes place in Cardinal signs for extra control flavor.
Saturn is a slow transit and is felt over months. The moon and Mars are quick movers, relatively speaking, so their effect is more of the moment, a piling on, so to speak. So why do I bring this up? Today my mother (moon) is making me (Saturn) get a shot (Mars). I really don’t want it (square to venus) but I’m being guilted in the extreme. If Saturn-moon ever had a kryptonite it was guilt. I feel helpless under a guilt assault.
No one can “make” you do anything, blah-de-blah-de, yeah yeah yeah. Let me tell you, my mother’s Saturn opposes my moon and functionally, yes, she CAN make me. She has the upper hand and while I may not like it, it is in my best interest to “go quietly.” Rebellion is not worth the collateral damage and I’m best off to swallow my objections, get it done, and get on with my life. Sometimes dilemmas don’t have heroic choices. Sometimes you do the best with what you’ve got and what you’ve got ain’t so great. The best choice I have is to soldier on and get done, which is very Saturn mashed with Mars.
Do you have control issues in your chart? How about control issues in synastry with another person?
