Deer Moon Astrology 8/4/2020


Intellect may hold a bit more sway over will power and blunt force today. However, Mars squares Jupiter which ratchets up the impulsive urges and self-righteous stands. The Venus-Saturn quincunx keeps open, honest communication at arm’s length but does not offer the kind of detachment that offers space for resolutions. At best, it may help to keep our interactions with others more cautiously circumspect. The Moon goes void-of-course this afternoon at 2:45 PM PDT — after which there are more likely to be grinding gears than any productive engagement.

The moon shares a pleasant aspect with Mars this morning, giving you the gumption to get up and get moving. You should feel a burst of energy this morning, and you may even wake up before your alarm goes off.

These good vibes continue into the afternoon as the moon in Aquarius shares a trine with both Venus and the north node, which are currently hanging out in the sign of Gemini. These aspects can create a playful atmosphere in relationships, and light communication should come easily. But while the conversation may be flowing, the discussions are likely to remain surface level.

The lingering effects of yesterday’s opposition between Mercury and Saturn could make people aware of their personal boundaries, which you’re unlikely to breakthrough. Today’s aspects are great for flirting—just don’t cross any lines with your crush!

Carve some time out of your evening to catch up with friends. The theme of the day is communication, and thanks to the moon’s aspects there are some big opportunities for healing. Showing your friends that you’re there for them will help you realize that the feeling is mutual. By connecting with the people you care about, you can feel lighter, happier, and more at peace.

Just make sure you let others take their turn speaking. The moon moves into Pisces tonight, making it important to listen to others. However, Mercury moves into Leo, too, which could leave you wanting to toot your own horn. Just keep the conversation light and you’ll be golden.
