Transiting Jupiter square or opposite your natal Moon. In general this is a very pleasant transit as it makes you feel sentimental and connected with the past. There will be a desire to protect those around you and make them feel comfortable. Social justice is very important to you now and if you see injustice at this time, it will bring alot of outrage and a feeling self-righteousness.

It is best to try and moderate your indulgence.
On the negative side, relationships with other women or your mother may be a bit strained at this time, as you may be behaving in a way that decreases their freedom. Possessiveness is a common reaction at to this transit. It is best to emphasize a bit of independence and avoid clingyness.
