Deer Moon Astrology 6/16/2020


“The two hardest tests on the spiritual road are the patience to wait for the right moment and the courage not to be disappointed with what we encounter.”

Paulo Coelho, Veronika Decides to Die

Today presents us with an especially slippery slope, where self-interest could send us far beyond a simple desire to find stability and safety. Entrenched attitudes are emboldened by today’s Taurus Moon. Any lack of appreciation is magnified and especially painful. The waning Moon is likely to increase our desire to pull back and look for the protection of our family, tribe, or community. The profound need to regroup, review, and reassess is felt deeply — with or without our conscious awareness. The waning lunar cycle and the station of Mercury, which turns retrograde tomorrow, seem to offer us few choices but to look for protection — shelter from the storm.

After yesterday’s fast-paced passion and excitement, the energy shifts to slow, sensual, and practical as the moon enters Taurus this morning and then squares Saturn to bring a turning point.

Taurus is a fixed earth sign. The moon is exalted in Taurus, where it is easy to find grounding for your ever-changing emotions. The recent months have challenged you to grow in unexpected ways. This is a chance to embody your lessons without letting them shackle you to the past.

The moon conjoins Uranus tonight, bringing unexpected developments, openings, and surprises. Necessity is the mother of invention, and this is an opportunity for innovation. Remain detached. This could be the breakthrough you’ve been waiting for.
