Question about moon representing relationship with mother. I’m not a fan of my mom, there’s abuse etc. history in our relationship. It’s always been challenging and I’ve considered calling it quits many times.
But my sun in the first house is trine my moon in the fifth, suggesting we’re supposed to have a good relationship? My moon is also opposite Mars and Square mercury.

I don’t see your sun moon trine as a sign you would get along with your mother. I would think you get along with yourself. I might also think your mom got along with your dad, though I don’t see this situation as often as I once did.
Bottom line, it’s your trine. One way or the other, you’re aware that men and women can get along. You have the ability to feel good about how you live. There’s general harmony in this core area.
Your Mercury Mars clash can be problematic. You probably know I have the conjunction myself. Astrologer, Claire France told me long ago, it tends to see the child be abused. By the father generally; but in your case, the moon aspect pulls your mother in. However, I would not look at this combination and conclude the mother abused the child because there are many other options.
You could easily be on the abusing end of this, not just against your mother, but against any woman. The potential is there. There may be a competition with women, in either direction. A challenge. Jealous rage. I’m not doubting you in regards to your mother and her behavior, but this aspect is in your chart. It’s your energy and the anger (Mars) in your chart may be directed at your mother (moon), deservedly or otherwise. In this case, deservedly?
To be clear, it would be possible to have these aspect in your chart; and have a great mom, whom you get along with. You might be sporty for example, or love to verbally spar. It may also manifest in ways having nothing to do with your mother. You may find you feel good (moon), when you speed (Mars) walk (Mercury) or otherwise exert yourself.
On one level, the Mars Mercury mash up represents your point of view. The other person may see things differently. It’s possible your sun moon trine allows you to live comfortably, and the part of you that is agitated is put off on your mother. Like if it wasn’t for her, everything would be great!
Now this is interesting… I am concerned you will be angry at me, reading this. I am a woman (moon) writing (Mercury); the anger would be Mars. So this energy is playing independent of your mother.
I can tell you this with confidence: with a moon, Mercury, Mars T-square, you are going to get into skirmishes with people. Your mom is the devil you know. Your relationship with her may actually serve to contain this harsh energy, allowing you to live happily, in other realms, most of the time.
