Moon Sextile Jupiter Transit

Moon sextile Jupiter is a great time to socialize with other people.  It is a time when we are open, enthusiastic, generous, and outgoing. 

The Moon is related to our emotions, and our instinctive responses. It is associated with our nurturing instinct 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.

Jupiter is related to growth, enthusiasm, generosity, knowledge, belief systems, and the law. Jupiter is also associated with good luck and traditionally was called the greater benefic (a lucky planet, especially for those born with a day chart).

Planets are sextile when they are 60° apart (usually two signs away from each other). When looking at transits (as opposed to natal astrology), we typically allow an orb (allowance) of 1°, so planets that are 59° to 61° degrees apart are considered sextile.

A sextile is a harmonious or easy aspect that has a helpful quality to it. Sextiles can be useful when it comes to making necessary changes as things tend to work smoother with sextiles.
