Deer Moon Astrology 6/18/2020


“Dreams and restless thoughts came flowing to him from the river, from the twinkling stars at night, from the sun’s melting rays. Dreams and a restlessness of the soul came to him.”

Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha

The Moon is void-of-course from 5:02 AM PDT until its arrival in Gemini this afternoon at 1:59 PM PDT. There is a restlessness in today’s atmosphere that reflects the disconnect between our emotions and our intellect. Nonetheless, the sextile of Mars to Pluto encourages a determined search for tangible solutions — but does not promise that such solutions will be easily discovered. We should be cautious when we hear only simple platitudes or find superficial charm. Our emotional challenge is to side-step empty promises that seem to offer the safety and security that we are looking for in order to find deeper truths.

The earthy Taurus moon makes harmonious aspects to Mars, Pluto, and Jupiter this morning. The energy is sensual, romantic, intimate, creative, and fertile, and there’s a powerful transformation underway. Connections and bonds are deepening and revealing tangible, lucrative potential in situations. But be patient as you explore your options, and dig deep for your values rather than get swept away in illusions of superficial success or gain.

The energy shifts from slow and steady to mercurial as the moon enters Gemini this afternoon. The moon trines Saturn, bringing conversations, information, understanding, and clarity on choices.

There’s a smoldering intensity to the energy as Mars sextiles Pluto this evening, unfolding a potent alchemical change and revealing a soul truth.

There are lucrative opportunities arising, but this is a test of your integrity. You needn’t sell your soul to get ahead. Consciously release attachments to illusory success and you can taste the real thing.
