Deer Moon Astrology 5/29/2020


“Very few beings really seek knowledge in this world. Mortal or immortal, few really ask. On the contrary, they try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds — justifications, confirmations, forms of consolation without which they can’t go on. To really ask is to open the door to the whirlwind. The answer may annihilate the question and the questioner.”

Anne Rice, The Vampire Lestat

The Moon’s arrival in Virgo this morning ushers in a rather significant round of chaos and uncertainty, and the energy shifts to an earthy, grounded, productive, and practical vibe. You’re focused on your health, work, and chores, so it’s a busy day ahead. We’re looking for new information to gather, new lessons to learn. However, our impatience quickly rises when we don’t find enough detailed clarity. We may find that today even provides a breeding ground for misinformation aimed squarely at manipulation. There are few reliable guidelines to follow. As we reach the first quarter of the current lunar phase this evening, we may need to take a few steps back, resisting any inclination (or encouragement) to act too quickly or make snap judgments. There are, in fact, insights to be gleaned today but the flow of information is sporadic and generally unreliable. The less we feel the need to blame anyone for the lack of clarity, the more comfortable we will be.

The moon sextiles Mercury this morning, bringing news, healing conversations, and solutions and showing you what needs to happen next. Make a plan, but be flexible and improvise as necessary. The moon trines Uranus in Taurus tonight, bringing surprises and a break in routine. After a long day, this is the perfect opportunity to step away from your desk, unwind, and let loose a little.

You’re nearing a turning point as the Virgo Moon squares the sun in Gemini and reaches first quarter phase tonight. This is a chance to pause and make conscious choices and necessary adjustments to a plan as you move to the Sagittarius full moon and lunar eclipse in a week.

As the moon moves to opposes Mars in Pisces overnight, there could be a sense of anxiety, tension, or nervous energy. Avoid being overly critical or even self-critical, especially if something upsets you.

Worry is wasted energy. Do what you need to do and can do. Sleep off the rest. A warm bath or a glass of warm milk with a spoonful of turmeric can soothe anxiety and help you sleep restfully.
