Deer Moon Astrology 12/23/2019


“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I’ve learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can’t be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.”

The Moon reaches Sagittarius at 8:34 AM PST this morning and quickly forms a trine to Chiron. Yesterday’s connections become healing bonds that help to support expanded personal expression. Our personal expression is further supported by the Moon’s afternoon sextile to Venus which helps us to maintain our own position with determination — without feeling the need to knock down the positions anyone else may take. Individual expression is extraordinarily powerful here and is likely to naturally produce new leaders and provide us with important guidance through our connection to these new leaders. In today’s atmosphere, individual expression does not produce the usual cacophony of diverging voices but rather, creates natural channels that coordinate broader cooperation.

THE WEEK AHEAD: There is a deep and powerful organizational process underway this week. This Wednesday’s Capricorn New Moon (9:12 PM PST 4° Capricorn) — Christmas Day — sets the stage for the unveiling of the wisdom of Jupiter in Capricorn. These are, in essence, the last minute preparations for next month’s Saturn-Pluto conjunction which ‘perfects’ on January 12th, 2020, following the January 10th Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon (11:21 AM PST 20° Cancer/Capricorn). The ultimate focus this week is on finding our individual ‘voice’. There is strong pressure to break free of Capricorn’s limitations under the Sun’s square to Chiron and trine to Uranus. The wisdom of Jupiter begins to come through and serves to organize the individual expression into naturally forming ‘channels’ or currents of thought. Wherever these naturally occurring channels are formed, we are likely to see new leaders or new leadership objectives emerge. Mercury arrives in Capricorn by the end of the week, helping to stabilize our thinking and encouraging us to focus on clear goals and objectives. The approach of next month’s Saturn-Pluto Conjunction is palpable this week in the reorganization of basic structures — both personal and societal. The presence of Jupiter in this mix is working to expand the boundaries of possibilities, especially in the way we express our unique, individual inspiration, vision, and purpose. The most significant challenge in this process is to avoid working too hard in order to please others at the expense of our own personal vision and integrity.
