February 6: The moon is opposite Jupiter



The moon is opposite Jupiter at 1:14 p.m.

The powerful moon in Cancer comes into an opposition with Jupiter in stoic Capricorn this afternoon, bringing deep emotion and earthly expansion into polarity. The Cancerian moon confronts the forces of duty and responsibility, and today we find ourselves once again having to bring our feelings back into balance amidst the intensity of the daily news, and the huge restructuring that is going on in all of our lives. Jupiter is ultimately a helpful planet, but in Capricorn, its typically abundant and benevolent qualities are a bit toned down—still giving us rewards, but only after we put in the hard work. It’s a good time to check in on our emotional resources to make sure we have the support we need as we carry on with our duties while still upholding our highest values.

The moon is trine Neptune at 5:15 p.m.

The potent moon in its home sign of Cancer comes into a strong water trine with Neptune in Pisces late this afternoon, giving the cosmic weather a dreamy, meditative, and transcendental feeling. This evening is the perfect opportunity to tap into creative forces, to create poetry, music, visual art, or to do some divinatory practice like Tarot to reflect and receive insight. The empathic currents are strong today, helping us to pick up on psychic signals from beyond the structures of logic and mundane reality.

The moon is inconjunct the sun at 6:03 p.m.

The moon in protective Cancer forms a fleeting inconjunct “aspect” with the sun in Aquarius, providing an opportunity to tune into the feeling of the spaces in between our conversations this evening. There’s what is being said, but under the words, there are a deeper intention and meaning that may or may not match with what we or others are trying to communicate. It could be a good time to sit with what we are feeling, and reflect on it, to give ourselves time to evaluate how it should be expressed—or if it needs to be expressed at all.
