February 19: The moon is conjunct Jupiter

February 19: The moon is conjunct Jupiter




The moon is sextile Mercury Rx at 1:56 a.m., and square Venus at 4:08 a.m.


The still and composed Capricorn lunar mood permeates the very early hours of the morning, coming into a sextile with Mercury retrograde in perceptive Pisces. Feeling and thought merge in a fertile, grounded awareness. As the early morning unfolds, the mood shifts into one with a bit more friction and edge as the stoic Capricorn moon forms a square aspect with Venus in primal Aries. These two energies are pushing on the cosmic currents with equal force, catalyzing emotional release against the impulsive yearnings of love, and passion.

The moon is conjunct Jupiter at 11:50 a.m.


Late morning, the forces of cardinal earth consolidate in the moon’s conjunction with benevolent Jupiter in Capricorn. The moon is emotion, regeneration, and energy, and Jupiter is expansion, aspiration, and growth—and together in Capricorn—our deep, embodied instincts are in alignment with the steady, sustainable change that we are fostering this year. Jupiter will be in conservational Capricorn for most of this year, so each month when the moon returns to Capricorn, it provides an opportunity to check-in and feel into how our dreams and visions are gradually materializing.

The moon is sextile Neptune at 12:05 p.m.


The afternoon holds a fertile, creative combination of earthy, lunar forces, and emotive, empathic, and transcendent states when the moon in Capricorn forms a trine with Neptune in Pisces. Though fleeting, it is an interesting opportunity to deep dive into the imaginal as Capricorn’s sturdy energies keeping us grounded while we journey out, and beyond, in our visions. It’s Wednesday, the hump-day as it were, so this aspect may have us at least daydreaming about the weekend…
