Deer Moon Astrology 6/8/2020


The Moon is void-of-course today, from 11:05 AM PDT until 5:53 PM PDT. Attempts at formality and control should not be expected to be effective. Today presents us with an especially challenging shift in tone and it may not be easy to effectively ride the changes — so letting go will be more successful than having a hand stuck in the wheel. The evening’s Moon-Saturn conjunction is likely to have us feeling quite hemmed in. We’ll do better to slow down and avoid any attempt to stir things up and get things moving. There are likely to be a myriad of distractions that are not worth following up. However, taking the time to see other perspectives will help us to find a better understanding.

THE WEEK AHEAD: The week culminates with a conjunction of Mars and Neptune following the Sun’s square to both planets. The lack of clarity that we have been dealing with for much of this year reaches a new peak, while creative tension brings with it some significant frustration, impulsiveness, and aggression. The challenge, in this atmosphere, is to seek a broader range of perspectives and look for promising pieces of common ground. The creativity in this environment can be enhanced with experimentation and a broad perspective. On the other hand, the idealistic, creative tension in this atmosphere may produce or expose hidden (or overt) hostility, extreme frustration, and intense disappointment. In general, mutable squares, such as this week’s Gemini-Pisces squares, feel very chaotic. However, the chaotic process associated with mutable squares usually offers resolutions if we can stay with the process. There are slowdowns this week, associated with the slowdown of Mercury, which will turn retrograde at the end of next week. The slowdowns may only exacerbate our frustration and impulsiveness. Nonetheless, through the chaos and slowdowns, we may very well find that — in the end — we have been guided to exactly where we need to be in order to find the sense of security that we need. Our creativity and idealism need to be supported within a secure and safe environment. With enough awareness, we may actually recognize that we are being guided towards the safe place we need to find in order to follow our creative vision to a remarkable completion.

Sunday’s opportunities may be easily missed by chasing impractical distractions. There is a wealth of creative potential to be harvested. It isn’t easy to maintain any sort of control on Monday, under the void-of-course Moon. The evening brings a hemmed-in feeling upon the Moon’s arrival in Aquarius. It is important to look for other perspectives in order to expand our own. A broadened perspective is even more important on Tuesday. Frustration is especially debilitating. Impulsive aggression is stirred up by intense idealism. There is an overpowering feeling of nihilism or fatalistic resignation in the atmosphere on Wednesday. However, withdrawing may be just the thing we need in order to rebuild our emotional and physical reserves. The Sun’s square to Neptune on Thursday offers little clarity and heightened idealism. We’re better off to stay with the process and do whatever we can to dissipate any frustration. Tension is especially high on Friday and slowdowns seem to increase our dissatisfaction. On Saturday, the emotional intensity of creative tension brings an increased tendency to aggression that shows little purpose or direction. The need to find common purpose and broader perspectives is paramount.
