Deer Moon Astrology 4/8/2020


“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.
– Atticus Finch”

Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

The Moon is void-of-course from 5:49 AM PDT until 1:16 PM PDT. Once the Moon arrives in Scorpio, insecurity returns, albeit somewhat under cover or obscured. Nonetheless, we may find enough courage to try some revolutionary innovations. Impatience builds throughout the day, especially when we seek some kind of perfection, rather than appreciating any progress we may make. We should also be prepared to stand back from our strongly held beliefs when our progress is not in tune with those beliefs. Honesty and sincerity in the pursuit of deeper truths is extremely powerful today, while dogmatic beliefs that have outlived their usefulness will lead to extreme frustration.

We’re still under the energy of the full moon as the Libra moon squares Pluto, planet of transformation, and expansive Jupiter in the morning before going void-of-course.

You’re reaching a fork in the road and a powerful turning point. Consciously release the need to control a situation and move within to find inner balance. This is a chance to let go of conditioning and patterning surrounding relationships, especially from society and what you’ve seen play out between parents, primary caregivers, and role models. Discover what truly works for you. Then you can make wise choices that bring about real, lasting change.

The moon enters Scorpio this afternoon, and you might have to deal with difficult endings. Change is in the air. The energy is passionate, sexual, emotional, and transformative. Some bonds are deepening, others are dying, and the depth of your emotions could surprise you. If something triggers you, take a deep breath before you react. Surrender to the changes and you can flow with them.
