Deer Moon Astrology 1/3/2020


“How should we be able to forget those ancient myths that are at the beginning of all peoples, the myths about dragons that at the last moment turn into princesses; perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave. Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.

So you must not be frightened if a sadness rises up before you larger than any you have ever seen; if a restiveness, like light and cloudshadows, passes over your hands and over all you do. You must think that something is happening with you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand; it will not let you fall. Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any miseries, or any depressions? For after all, you do not know what work these conditions are doing inside you.”

Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

We reach some kind of communication watershed moment today. Mars has been transiting the murkier depths of Scorpio, its home sign, since November 18, 2019, ushering in a powerful core transformation, purification, and process of resurrection. Mars is the warrior planet, and in Sagittarius he can be a warrior of truth and justice. We are encouraged to speak our minds clearly and forcefully. The opportunities for real breakthroughs are possible, especially in the context of expressing exactly what we believe we need in order to find a sense of security. However, we must find some way to dispatch with any jealousy, as well as deal with self-righteousness. The more comfortable that we can be with the inherent limitations of our circumstances, the better we will be able to navigate this tricky environment. We may desperately wish to be show generosity — be we are also concerned about being recognized for this generosity. The Moon goes void-of-course at 5:18 PM PST this evening.

Mars is in Sagittarius until February 16, putting us on the road to freedom, exploring the new pastures, avenues, pathways, and opportunities that have opened up.

Jupiter, the ruler of Sagittarius, is in Capricorn now, asking that we apply and embody the wisdom we’ve gained over the past year of Jupiter’s transit through the sign. We are learning now, unequivocally, that it’s not enough to know the path; we have to walk it.

As the moon moves through Aries, it sextiles Venus and squares Saturn and Pluto today, igniting passions and asking for self-awareness above all. What you’re putting into motion now will reverberate for years to come. Move in awareness.
