Deer Moon Astrology 6/5/2020


“Everybody has a little bit of the sun and moon in them. Everybody has a little bit of man, woman, and animal in them. Darks and lights in them. Everyone is part of a connected cosmic system. Part earth and sea, wind and fire, with some salt and dust swimming in them. We have a universe within ourselves that mimics the universe outside. None of us are just black or white, or never wrong and always right. No one. No one exists without polarities. Everybody has good and bad forces working with them, against them, and within them.

It’s a big day in the cosmos! Today’s Sagittarius full moon and penumbral lunar eclipse mark the end of a cycle that began with the Gemini new moon. Eclipses seed the energy for at least six months. This is also the beginning of the Gemini-Sagittarius eclipses, ushering in an 18-month phase of transformation along the Gemini-Sagittarius axis.

On a collective level, we’re entering a phase when we’re likely to see global developments in areas of communication, transportation, aviation, international laws and policies, and travel, to name but a few.

On a personal level, pay attention to the areas of your chart and life ruled by Gemini and Sagittarius. This is where the action is playing out in your life, bringing a glimpse into the coming seasons.

Sagittarius is the sign that rules freedom, travel, international affairs, philosophy, religion, spirituality, faith, and knowledge. It is a visionary sign, and like its symbol the Centaur, it rises above the duality of the mind to seek a higher truth. With th full moon and lunar eclipse in Sagittarius, there are profound truths, major revelations, and opportunities coming to the surface. You could be having raw, honest, and emotional conversations.

Sagittarius doesn’t mince words, but remember that words have the power to hurt or heal. Be kind and honest, and know when it might be better to be silent, listen, and learn. Also, be patient as you gather all the facts, process a situation, and read the fine print, so you know what you’re signing up for.

With Venus, Mars, and Neptune in aspect to the lunation, relationships and finances are highlighted. Communication is key, and everything is negotiable. But first, be honest with yourself about your needs, especially for greater freedom, whether it’s financial or emotional. Then it will be easier to communicate with others.

This is a fork in the road. Be wise and farsighted, and keep the big picture in mind. You can then make choices that take you further along your journey toward your goals.

Today’s Sagittarius Full Moon (12:12 PM PDT 15° Sagittarius) offers tremendous creative potential but the chaos of the powerful mutable squares to Mars and Neptune in Pisces demands enormous faith — trust in the process. In this atmosphere, that is no small challenge! As Mars approaches the conjunction with Neptune, bubbles begin to burst and inflated expectations are dashed. However, this Sagittarius Full Moon encourages a philosophical attitude and certainly rewards honest effort. Our ultimate challenge is to continue to exercise self-discipline and honor the past but at the same time use the vast creative potential here to break new ground and expand the boundaries of the past. Mercury enters the shadow phase of the next retrograde period (June 18th – July 12th) today. There is a real need to find some sense of stability in order for our best creative initiatives to flourish.
