February 29: The moon is sextile Neptune, and trine Jupiter
2020 IS A LEAP YEAR
Every four years, February has an extra day, creating a Leap Year. This is an interesting cycle to tap into, a time to reflect on how far we’ve come in the last four years, especially for those Leap Year babies! The Leap Year makes 2020 one day longer, slightly shifting the start times of each astrological season.
The moon is sextile Neptune at 11:50 a.m.
The comfort-loving Taurus Moon comes into a harmonious sextile with dreamy Neptune in Pisces late this morning, opening the weekend with daydreams and romantic reveries. Neptune in Pisces is deeply illusory, carrying us into our imagination and calling on us to listen to the murmurings of our soul to follow our intuition and creative impulses. With its patient, grounded, and receptive energies, the lunar mood supports this exploration. If it’s hard to focus on the concrete today, relax into it and worry less about being productive and focus on just “being”.
Later in the afternoon, the exalted moon in Taurus forms a strong earth trine with benevolent Jupiter in Capricorn. This is an opportunity to be aware of how the deep emotional intelligence at work in our lives is supporting the growth and expansion of our highest values this year. Jupiter is a bit more reserved with its gifts while in Capricorn, yet it delivers gifts just the same if we are able to be patient, grounded, and steadily work to materialize the change we would like to see in the world. This is a signature of realigning to trust, commitment, and honoring our promises to others, the earth, and ourselves. This aspect likely gives the afternoon an optimistic tone, one that is rooted in the fruits of actions of substance.
