Deer Moon Astrology 6/23/2020


“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”

Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

The Moon is void-of-course during the early morning hours, arriving in Leo by 5:33 AM PDT. We find inspiration to move forward with strength and determination. We feel somehow changed — more willing to expand our boundaries, look beyond limitations, and finally truly break new ground. The nervous energy and chaos that we have been experiencing begin to feel more like a call to action than an overwhelming, burdensome distraction. The safety and security we have been looking for begin to seem attainable through an expanded perspective and the removal of outworn boundaries.

As the day progresses, the Leo moon opposes Saturn, and you’re reflecting on your limits, boundaries, and goals. Leo is the sign that represents courage, confidence, and ego, but in opposition to Saturn, you’re also being asked for humility and to know your role and position as part of a collective.

As the moon sextiles retrograde Venus this afternoon, the energy is creative, passionate, romantic, and lucrative. We’re at the end of this planet’s retrograde phase, which has taken us on a journey through the underworld, or the darker side of our desires.

Venus stations direct tomorrow, and this marks a turning point in relationships and financial situations. You can have what you want, but you have to acknowledge it first. You’re learning another side to a story, perhaps of your desires. Be honest about what you want—it will call for courage and vulnerability—and choose from the heart. The risk is passing up a chance to be happy.

The moon squares Uranus tonight, bringing unexpected developments and surprising desires and emotions. You’re turning a corner and reaching a breakthrough. Be honest with yourself.
