The Moon has just entered sidereal Sagittarius at the time of writing. This emphasizes the current tension between Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius, with undercurrents of Pluto. The Moon is in the lunar sign Mula today, a sign represented by Niritti, the goddess of death. Ideally, the goddess of death grants us the ability to remove blockages to our development and result in clear thought processes.
We can see on the news, however, that it can also simply mean more death and destruction.
When the 'malefic' planets, Mars and Saturn transit a sign together, they create a more tense environment. In Sagittarius, they are putting more emphasis on righteousness, or lack thereof. This continues due to Saturn and Pluto's transit here for the next few years, while Mars' position here in April leads to a further destabilization.
