Deer Moon Astrology 6/17/2020


“When Mercury is in retrograde, it’s the perfect time to revisit and restructure thought and belief patterns that no longer serve you. Ask yourself, how would I like to rewrite my story?”

Mercury turns retrograde later this evening in a surprisingly benevolent environment that seems to open the door to some sense of increasing security. We should not simply fall back into this atmosphere but rather, use this breather to look for tangible resources and valuable lessons from our past. Sensitivity over any lack of appreciation continues to be an important factor in our search for security. If our efforts are not appreciated, we can begin to feel that our efforts will be undercut or discarded. We are looking for a way to stabilize our position before we expend any more effort. Anything that seems to disrupt or threaten our security increases our sensitivity and weakens our resolve.

The Taurus moon sextiles Mercury and Neptune this morning, bringing messages—perhaps in your dreams—insights, conversations, ideas, and possibilities. The energy is fertile and brimming with potential.

The days surrounding the day of Mercury’s retrograde station tend to bring information to the surface. With the moon’s aspects to Mercury, stationery in Cancer, there’s a flood of information and profound emotions welling up. People are feeling sensitive, and there could be a wave of nostalgia sweeping through. But information is also surfacing now, asking for deeper reflection as Mercury turns retrograde tonight (until July 12). It would be best to not make any major purchases at this time. Double-check all communications, too.

Venus is also currently retrograde, in Mercury’s sign. This is an ideal time to find closure on the past. Be patient as you move through a process, and you can clear up a situation and reach a deeper understanding.
