Moon square Saturn can manifest as a type of low and somber mood. Duties and obligations can seem burdensome and it can seem like all the joy has been sucked out of life. You may feel less like interacting with others and communications with others can seem cold or lacking in emotion.
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.
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 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.
