Deer Moon Astrology 7/21/2020


“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

Brene Brown

There are challenges to be faced today but showing any vulnerability may be especially difficult. There are strong tendencies to maintain a look good facade in order to avoid exposing any weaknesses. The inner uncertainty we feel actually shows us where to look for healing — if we aren’t afraid to explore those vulnerable feelings honestly. Although we may very well feel strong bursts of self-confidence throughout the day, it doesn’t mean that those other feelings have actually gone away. The split within our inner dialog may become especially stressful throughout the day. Finding a way to let those surges of confidence coexist with waves of uncertainty and insecurity is definitely not an easy assignment. Our concern over what others think of us — and all of our inner conflicts — will only make today’s challenges even more difficult. Just let it all hang out. The Moon goes void-of-course at 5:36 PM PDT this evening.

Strong emotions are possible as a waxing crescent moon in boastful Leo opens the need for immediate expression. There is so much to discuss, but do you really have the time to address it all in one sitting? Try to give others time to process things, too. Everyone is reacting to events much differently because there are many elements present through these cosmic vibes. Conflict is at least out in the open, which is half the battle.

Not everything will be resolved, even as the energy begins to lift throughout the day. The loving Cancer sun is still in full opposition to Saturn in demanding Capricorn, which sets a higher standard of excellence. Getting everyone to agree is only one piece in this very intricate puzzle.

The pivotal influence from a loving sextile between Jupiter in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces emphasizes a dreamier quality when approaching challenges. Recognize the artistry of your inner voice. With a void-of-course moon coursing through the evening, this is the time to pick up that crafting project you’ve already started.
