Deer Moon Astrology 5/1/2020


“Don’t give up! It’s not over. The universe is balanced. Every set-back bears with it the seeds of a come-back.”

Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience


The day starts on a passionate note. The Leo moon sextiles Venus in Gemini in the morning and later opposes Mars in Aquarius and then goes void-of-course.

The Moon remains void-of-course for most of the day, from 9:04 AM PDT until 10:35 PM PDT. There are glaring challenges and stumbles in leadership and centrally organized efforts. Both new leadership initiatives and establishment structures or corporate frameworks seem to be vulnerable to such challenges. Nonetheless, this presents a time when we can make a conscious turn in our awareness toward more realistic and practical approaches. Decisiveness is called for even though decisions that are made today are certainly subject to changes or reexamination. The lack of continuity and sudden, sharp turns in direction are especially troublesome today.

Exciting conversations are taking place, fanning desire, passion, and perhaps even love and romance. But with Venus in Gemini and in opposition to Mars, this could go both ways.

If you’re feeling angst, or if something upsets you, take a deep breath before you react. The more you can release expectations or the need for validation, the easier you can find self-acceptance and extend it to others and situations.

Later tonight, as the moon enters Virgo, there’s a healing vibe in the air. Get organized! Tomorrow is a busy day. Also, this is a chance to heal bruised egos and/or to show your love and appreciation in little ways.
