Moon Sextile Saturn Transit

Moon sextile Saturn is likely to manifest as a more subdued mood. You are aware of your duties and obligations and are focused on doing what needs to be done without too much emotional upheaval. Your chores and work are likely to be carried out without much fuss, but with due care and diligence.

The Moon is related to our emotions, and our instinctive responses. It is associated with our nurturing instinct and mothers and women in general. The Moon moves very quickly, only remaining in a zodiac sign for about two and a half days, so the transits of the Moon are over quickly, lasting only a few hours usually.

Saturn is about restrictions, Saturn wants to make sure that all the i’s are dotted and all the t’s are crossed. Saturn is about taking the time to make sure something is done correctly. Saturn can delay things, but things built under Saturn are usually durable and stand the test of time.

Planets are sextile when they are 60° apart (usually 2 signs away from each other). When looking at transits (as opposed to natal astrology) we usually allow an orb (allowance) of 1° so planets that are 59° to 61° degrees apart are considered sextile.

A sextile is a harmonious or easy aspect that has a helpful quality to it.  Sextiles can be useful when it comes to making changes that are necessary as things tend to work smoother with sextiles.
