Moon sextile Sun transits usually manifest as a feeling of ease and equilibrium between body and soul. Interactions with others are usually good and your mood is likely to be quite optimistic.
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.
The Sun is related to ourselves, our hero’s journey, ourselves at our essential best. The Sun is the source of light for us, and just as it shines down on earth, it shines a light wherever it falls.
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.
