Deer Moon Astrology 1/2/2020


“If personality is an unbroken series of successful gestures, then there was something gorgeous about him, some heightened sensitivity to the promises of life, as if he were related to one of those intricate machines that register earthquakes ten thousand miles away. This responsiveness had nothing to do with that flabby impressionability which is dignified under the name of the “creative temperament”–it was an extraordinary gift for hope, a romantic readiness such as I have never found in any other person and which it is not likely I shall ever find again. No–Gatsby turned out all right at the end; it is what preyed on Gatsby, what foul dust floated in the wake of his dreams that temporarily closed out my interest in the abortive sorrows and short-winded elations of men.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

We are faced with the magnitude of the task at hand today — what lays ahead may suddenly seem quite overwhelming. While our responses may vary, we continue to deal with an underlying feeling that we need recognition, approval, and security. When seeking these things, we may be inclined to ignore the needs of others. Self-righteousness and the jealous grasping for what we believe we are owed will only keep us isolated. Certainly, we are facing heavy demands in some way or another, creating the desire to be rewarded for actually facing them — or resentment for having to face them at all (entitlement). However, the underhanded or devious tactics we are tempted to use to escape the pressure are ultimately unlikely to offer much satisfaction. Communication is also particularly challenging today and we aren’t really capable of fully articulating exactly what we want to be recognized for.

Planet of communication Mercury meets Jupiter in Capricorn today, bringing major conversations, profound realizations, and huge opportunities, and asking us to open our minds and see things from a broader perspective.

With the moon in Aries, the mood is passionate, determined, fiery, and focused. The moon squares Mercury and Jupiter a few hours later, asking that we dig deep to ask ourselves what we want and where we stand in light of the information and opportunities arising. If something triggers you, avoid projecting emotions. Squares ask for inner resolution, and this is a chance for maturity and growth.

The Aries moon is at the first quarter phase as it squares the sun in Capricorn tonight. This marks the halfway point between eclipses, a checkpoint and turning point. Today is the final day of Mars in Scorpio, suggesting a powerful transformation and resurrection is underway.

The landscape of our life is changing. When all is said and done, where will you stand in the pages of history? Above all, be true to yourself.
