Moon sextile Neptune can manifest as a time when we are more sensitive to those around us. We may be feeling quite idealistic or altruistic and find genuine joy in helping and assisting those close to us, with no thought of what they can do for us in return. This aspect can also promote daydreaming.
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.
Neptune can be very idealistic and altruistic, sometimes to the point of self-sacrifice. It can be hard to see matters clearly when Neptune is involved though, as it tends to blur boundaries.
Planets are sextile when they are 60° apart (usually 2 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 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 changes that are necessary as things tend to work smoother with sextiles.
