Deer Moon Astrology 2/21/2020


“These times are hard, but I won’t walk away jaded, darker, different. I feel. I cry to heal. If you saw me in those moments, maybe you’d think I was a mess. But I don’t call it a mess. I call it strength.

Real strength isn’t about building walls. Real strength is about staying open, no matter what. It’s about taking life—with all the pleasures that fade and all the pain that sticks around for too long—and not shutting down, not closing down, not building up those walls.

Resilience isn’t hard, impenetrable, iron. Resilience is flexible, soft, warm.

Stay strong. The real kind of strong. Don’t let your automatic mind reflexes make you jump away from pain and towards pleasure. Make choices. See clearly. And never, ever, stop feeling.

Don’t go numb. The world, even with all its horror, is too beautiful to miss.”

Today’s Mars-Chiron square helps us to further break out of the protective shell that has seemed to be necessary. However, we only break free in fits and starts and, under this waning Moon, find little continuity or coherent line of thought to follow. We will do better to look carefully at the subtleties and carefully examine the unusual outliers. Just as in nature, there are enormous numbers of variants to consider and we need to step back enough to honor the myriad of differences and unique perspectives.

Mars trines Uranus in Taurus today, bringing tangible, solid progress, clearing out, and the discovery of hidden treasures. Uranus in Taurus has been shaking the foundations of our known reality, asking us to question the things we take for granted.

It takes a special eye to recognize a diamond in the rough. Move beyond the surface to discover the true value and heart of the people and situations in your life. What are you feeding? What do you need to weed out so you can conserve and pour your energy into what you’re building? Move deliberately and consciously.

Tonight, the Aquarius moon connects with Venus in Aries, and the energy is social, affectionate, passionate, and sparkling with creativity. It’s a great evening to socialize with friends, deepen a heart connection, or brainstorm your next genius idea. Remain detached and be open to serendipity.
