Moon square Pluto can manifest as obsessive or compulsive behavior. Emotions that may have been suppressed or hidden away may bubble up and come to the surface at this time. There is the potential for honest in-depth analysis of emotions, or situations, but there is also the possibility of emotional manipulation and power struggles.
The Moon is related to our emotions, and our instinctive responses. It is associated with our nurturing nature 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.
Pluto is associated with power plays, unearthing the hidden, sexuality, intensity, and crisis. Pluto can tear things down so that they can be rebuilt better. There is often a phoenix rising from the flames vibe with Pluto.
Planets are square when they are 90° apart (usually 3 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 89° to 91° degrees apart are considered square.
Squares are a challenging aspect that usually causes some sort of friction between the two planets involved. When planets are square, they are usually 3 signs away and therefore share the same modality (cardinal, fixed, or mutable) so while there are differences, there are some similarities when it comes to how they approach life and problems.
