Sun Square Moon Transit

Transiting Sun square Moon adds stress and irritation in Moon related areas like the home, with family and other close relationships especially with women. What you want to do is challenged by emotional pressures, the heart and the head are not working together as well as they usually are.

The Moon is also the subconscious and how we instinctively react, so any negative emotions can rise up, and then get expressed through the ego, and this is the cause of any relationship problems at the moment.

Other people will pick up on the inner tension and vulnerability, and may see some more negative traits and habits than they are used to. The aim here is not to react too emotionally, not to take things too personally under this influence. The Sun is shining a light on negative emotions, habits, and outdated automatic reactions that you are usually not conscious of, and the square aspect gives the push need to face these problems as deal with them successfully.

This interpretation for Sun square Moon transit can also be read for a Solar Eclipse and New Moon square Moon.

    • I also have Pisces Sun and Sag Moon (im male). In my case, the square seems to be related with a conflict between an orphan father whose (practically lost) family was of Danish/Irish roots (and very much linked to higher-education, which is a Sag moon theme…), and a mother of rather middle-class (Italian) roots (im from a Southamerican country): this split within my (cultural)heritage have all sorts of ramifications; for example, i almost feel like not belonging at all to any sort of social subset, and so on…Im actually being split into a part of myself totally willing to develope my musical talents (say, a subconscious one…related to the moon), on one hand, and my conscious-self telling me to invest as least as i can (just because, seemingly, this way i would fit to my father´s heritage of lack and loss, pending somehow as the orphanage´s projection…)…i would be indeed capable of composing many things (either songs, guitar pieces, and so on…), but for reasons i hardly grasp, im not doing it…

  1. I have 0 degrees Pisces sun in the 11th house, square 29 scorpio moon in the 8th house.
    I want to be involved with new age groups and be all light and moon beams then the scorpio moon square uranus jolts me right out into no man’s land?
    Thankfully the older i get, i recognise the script and the signs and do not act out, have learnt not to jump too quickly into things, i now do alot of gardening and try to incorporate into my life the new age things i need to learn without committing to much, knowing that i might tip the apple cart.

  2. When you have your natal Sun square your natal Moon, it means that your core self is basically at odds with your emotional self. So security, safety and emotion based needs are at odds with your need to express your life force energy.
