February 12: The moon is opposite Venus



The moon is opposite Venus at 12:06 a.m.

Overnight the Libra moon comes into an opposition with Venus in impulsive Aries. This could set the stage for exciting dynamics in love and attraction, or a tug of war feeling when trying to find a balance in our relationships. Venus in potent Aries may draw out our raw emotional expressions in spite of a Libran effort to keep these equanimous and balanced, so the late night/early morning may hold some fleeting standoffs and confrontations with our loved ones, where we may need to get real and be more direct to be fully understood.


The moon is square Jupiter at 5:54 p.m.

Early evening the peaceful Libra moon comes into a stimulating square with Jupiter in stoic Capricorn. This aspect may tend to amplify emotions for a moment and induce some flares of impatience as Jupiter’s expansive nature can blow-up whatever it connects with. Since Jupiter is in Capricorn, this amplification process may be more subdued, manageable, and even necessary to further draw out the emotional conversations that need to be had.

The moon is inconjunct Neptune 7:57 p.m.

An exact aversion forms between the Libran moon and Neptune in Pisces tonight, highlighting how emotional balance and transcendental ideals are not connecting or collaborating at the moment. Some adjustment is needed to bring these two themes together, and it could be that the Libra moon is creating a rather detached, somewhat aloof lunar mood that makes it hard to tap into the intangible. It’s a fleeting, uncanny feeling that perhaps need not be over analyzed, but can help explain any strange disconnects that occur for a moment tonight.
