March 5: The moon is opposite Jupiter



The moon is trine Neptune at 5:14 a.m.


The waxing moon in emotive Cancer comes into a water trine with Neptune, the planet of illusions and visions, in empathic Pisces very early this morning. There will likely be a dreamy, faraway feeling to the morning hours as a result, where our minds may be wandering to the weekend while there is still work left to do. A very sentimental, nostalgic mood takes over, where we may be longing for simpler times, or dreaming up a future where we can be whimsical and free. Musical or poetic ideas may emerge from the fog as the day slowly unfolds…


The moon is opposite Jupiter at 8:56 a.m.


The moon in protective Cancer comes into a polarizing opposition with Jupiter in dutiful Capricorn later this morning. This may amplify or expand our feelings somewhat, emphasizing the parts of ourselves that feel vulnerable or are experiencing growing pains. Typically signifying optimism, Jupiter is more cautious in sensible Capricorn, so while we are deeply emoting, we may be coming up against limitations and boundaries around how free we do or do not feel in our expressions. This oppositional aspect also calls into light the need for emotional support at this time—to receive it, but also to give it to those close to us who may be struggling now.


The moon is opposite Pluto at 3:50 p.m., and Saturn at 11:11 p.m.


Later in the afternoon, the potent moon in Cancer comes into polarity with Pluto in Capricorn, bringing powerful emotions into a confrontation with our deep, inner psychological changes. Fortunately a fleeting aspect, it’s heaviness may have us feeling pensive this afternoon while we confront what’s in the dark. As the day continues into the night, this lunar opposition shifts away from Pluto over to stern Saturn in Capricorn. Thoughts and feelings continue to be quite serious, which may feel for a few hours very perplexing and overwhelming. We may be thinking about some tough decisions that we have to make, that are important for our emotional health.
