Deer Moon Astrology 4/10/2020


“The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Today’s myriad of distractions and temptations are actually preparing us for some return to clarity and deeper understanding of how to work through our individual perspectives to develop collaborative effort. It is crucial that we have some goals or intentions to keep us centered and focused on moving forward, despite any clear path forward. Today gives us a bit of time — not necessarily very comfortable — to prepare for Mercury’s shift from the confusion of Pisces to the powerfully direct intentions of Aries. The Moon arrives in Sagittarius early this afternoon (1:35 PM PDT), which begins the shift in our thinking and understanding towards more direct communication and clearer information when Mercury arrives in Aries at 9:48 PM PDT.

The moon is in Scorpio until this afternoon, and the revelations continue to spill over today. There’s a powerful transformation underway—emotionally, financially, and in relationships involving sex and money—asking you to clear space for growth and expansion. Conversations are flowing and bringing information and realizations. Acknowledge how you feel and what you want, and then it will be easier to be honest with others.

The moon enters Sagittarius this afternoon, and the mood lightens and grows more passionate and affectionate as the day progresses. But there are major shifts unfolding. Also, after a long trek through Pisces (since February 3), Mercury enters Aries tonight, bringing a shift in communication. Since February, Mercury’s transit in Pisces may have felt like trying to speak underwater. Now Mercury is in Aries, and you’re ready to talk. Expect communication to be direct, passionate, and to the point.

Perhaps most significantly, Venus enters shadow phase today, marking a longer phase of transformation in relationships, financial and creative situations, and matters of the heart. Pay attention to what surfaces. You’ll be getting a glimpse into an unfolding story over the coming months. Remember that words have the power to hurt or heal. Choose yours wisely.
