Moon square Jupiter can have us feeling emotionally optimistic and carefree but we may overestimate our luck or our enthusiasm may be out of proportion at this time. There can also be a tendency to think that we know it all, to think that our beliefs are somehow superior to those of others, and to possibly pontificate to others now.
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 the largest planet in our solar system and is associated with travel, expansion, enthusiasm, generosity, education, religion, beliefs, and the law. In older forms of astrology, Jupiter was called the Greater Benefic, meaning it was considered the luckiest planet (especially if you were born during the day). Jupiter can also inflate matters out of proportion though, and make us over-confident, have unrealistic expectations, or on occasion arrogant.
Planets are square when they are 90° apart (usually 3 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 89° to 91° degrees apart are considered square.
Squares are a challenging aspect that usually causes some sort of friction between the two planets involved. When planets are square, they are usually 3 signs away and therefore share the same modality (cardinal, fixed, or mutable) so while there are differences, there are some similarities when it comes to how they approach life and problems.
