Deer Moon Astrology 5/14/2020


“If you chase anything in life chase the things that get you excited about living. Chase the things that give you hope, happiness and a glimpse of a better life. Chase the things that make you want to be a better person. Chase the things that inspire you to think, create and live joyfully. Chase the things that reinforce in your soul that you can make a difference. Chase the things that make you want to transform your heart from selfish to selfless. When you chase that kind of storm you are chasing rainbows.”

 Shannon L. Alder

The Moon goes void-of-course this morning at 7:02 AM PDT. We may almost experience a Cinderella moment — our carriage turns back into a pumpkin — around failing intellect or a sudden lack of intellectual focus. The Moon arrives in Pisces early this evening at 6:24 PM PDT and conjuncts Mars. We may find that our intuition has suddenly shifted in high gear. However, Jupiter stations retrograde earlier in the day (yes, the 3rd planet to retrograde this week!) and the overall effect — through September 12th — will be sharply restrictive. Today’s overall effect may feel very much as though some kind paralysis has set in, creating an extraordinary amount of uncertainty. Our challenge is to replace intellectual focus and concentration with flexibility and intuition. The feeling may be quite distracting and seem utterly out of control if we aren’t able to rely on faith to steady our perspective.

The Aquarius moon reaches the final quarter today as it squares the sun in Taurus this morning. You’re at a turning point, halfway between the Scorpio full moon and Gemini new moon, offering a chance to get centered on what matters and stop clinging to what’s changing.

Also this morning, Jupiter stations retrograde in Capricorn, bringing profound developments and major revelations. You’re learning of potential opportunities or perhaps unfinished business that needs to be cleared before you can move forward. Not all of this will be easy to deal with, but have faith that a situation holds a gift.

The moon enters Pisces tonight and meets Mars, firing up the imagination, creativity, and a sense of infinite possibilities. The energy is magical, romantic, and dreamy at best, filled with optimism and hope. But if there’s confusion, be patient while the dust settles and clarity returns. Avoid rushing into something and you won’t slip up.

Finally, the sun trines Pluto in Capricorn tonight, and you’re mining for gold. Let go of superficial attachments to money or success, and dig deep for what’s truly valuable—your integrity and values. Stay true to those and you can turn lead into gold, metaphorically speaking.
