Deer Moon Astrology 12/16/2019


“I used to feel so alone in the city. All those gazillions of people and then me, on the outside. Because how do you meet a new person? I was very stunned by this for many years. And then I realized, you just say, “Hi.” They may ignore you. Or you may marry them. And that possibility is worth that one word.”

Augusten Burroughs

The Moon goes void-of-course this afternoon at 2:09 PM PST after making an energizing trine to the Sun. Even with the Fire Sign energy, the atmosphere keeps us weighed down. Impatience may result from the lack of determined effort to make any tangible progress. Conflicts and challenges may result in fatalism and a lack of any firm resolve. Despite the temptation to wallow in pessimism, the opportunities are mounting. What is required here is self-control and a willingness to roll with the punches. To the extent that we have made plans, we need to stick with them. If we don’t have any plans, we may need to find someone who does.

THE WEEK AHEAD: The Jupiter-Uranus trine completes at the beginning of the week, unveiling a wealth of possibilities that we can see on the horizon. However, the overall atmosphere, dominated by Saturn and Capricorn, keeps us on edge, concerned over appearances, struggling to maintain optimism, and generally cautious in our expectations. Balance and awareness are required in order to stay away from fatalistic pessimism. We need to stay focused on our previous plans and strategies. In other words, if we have a plan, we need to stick with it despite the apparent obstacles and challenges that arise. We aren’t likely to find any wide-open lanes but by mid-week, we gain a number of interesting and exciting intellectual insights that help us to recognize patterns and see tangible routes to achieve the possibilities that have been revealed. Venus arrives in Aquarius on Thursday, bringing freedom to improvise our approaches and further expand on the intellectual insights. Nonetheless, if we are looking for a quick strike or expansive gains, we may quickly find ourselves frustrated and acting out through anti-social behavior or under-handed passive-aggressiveness. If we can stay with the process and avoid pessimism, we will recognize that there are tools and opportunities surfacing to help us show off our abilities and capabilities in remarkable ways. The end of the week brings us to the Winter Solstice. We may suddenly feel that the window on possibilities is already closing but this is truly the opportunity for us to show how our previous planning has prepared us to take on the challenges and restrictions of the potent Capricorn atmosphere in order to manifest the possibilities that are presented to us this week.
