Quarantine is not a natural situation, and those who are asked to remain at home are subject to bouts of anxiety and nerves. Mercury retro in Aquarius is in a sextile aspect to Venus in Aries (both at 29 degrees of the respective signs), as a time of possible relaxation may be none-the-less distressful, especially if under duress. Saturn in Cap in a square aspect to Venus indicates restrictions, possibly imposed by authoritative figures, with varying ability to cope, as Venus in the 29th degree feels vulnerable. The Moon in Cancer pulls away from Mars in Capricorn, into a self-protective mode. Anger may be projected outward as a result. Children naturally reach for adult approval in this time of personal growth and understanding as we comply with laws and regulations.
