Deer Moon Astrology 4/22/2020


“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”

Susan Sontag

The Moon is void-of-course this morning until its arrival in Taurus at 12:35 PM PDT ahead of this evening’s New Moon (7:25 PM PDT 3° Taurus). The New Moon helps us to make new connections to our independent inspiration and will potentially serve to increase the reliability of individual leadership. However, today’s atmosphere does not actually offer many reassuring clues about the turn we are making. Honesty and inspiration seem to be in short supply for the moment.

“Those who know don’t talk. Those who talk don’t know.” — Tae Te Ching

Nonetheless, given some time, those who do know will begin to speak. It is important to note the proximity of the New Moon to Uranus, suggesting sudden and surprising shifts and developments, along with precise intellectual insights, coming during this new lunar cycle.

The moon enters Taurus midday and meets the sun tonight, marking the Taurus new moon. This lunation will also be after a square to Saturn, and approaching a conjunction to Uranus (after midnight), bringing groundbreaking developments.

Significantly, the lunation occurs on the degree of the moon’s exaltation, making this an especially rich and fertile lunation. Also, with current aspects seeding the lunation, there are sudden unexpected developments and shifts occurring, uprooting structures and stuck energy that’s long been in place. Remain detached. Anything that falls away is revealing what’s valuable.

Pay attention to what is unfolding. As you sow, so shall you reap. Financial matters and relationships are highlighted. Dig deeper beyond surface material attachments and get grounded in your values. Then you can invest your energy consciously.
