Deer Moon Astrology 8/6/2020


Idealism builds today but may not be fully grounded in reality. The lack of focus is significant but the idealism encourages us to take a stand even if our position isn’t really clearly defined. Passions are beginning to rise ahead of next week’s Mars-Pluto square but the number of temptations and distractions that we find today only keep us from focusing directly on the sources of the building tensions. Today’s passion and idealism need to find grounding and stability but we may not be fully aware of what we need. We don’t seem to find the sorts of connections that would help us develop that stability.

A conjunction between the moon and Neptune could make waking up difficult today, so try not to hit the snooze button too many times! The energy will be light and lofty, giving you an opportunity to enjoy a stress-free morning (as long as you don’t sleep in too late).

A pleasant aspect between the moon and Jupiter offers a boost in optimism, so be sure to spread some joy around as you move through the day. If you’re especially empathic, people may come to you for healing through conversation. Make sure to set boundaries for yourself, and cut the conversation short if you begin to feel tired or drained.

Pluto blows a kiss to the moon and Neptune today as well, making it a great day to release internal frustrations that are no longer serving you. By leaning into transformation and emotional growth, you can evolve both personally and psychically today. It’s also a great time to daydream for your future, think big today in terms of your long-term goals.

The moon shares an aspect with Saturn after midnight, which can help you find structure within your dreams and goals. Jot down a list of things you’d like to do and note how you’ll accomplish them.
