Deer Moon Astrology 8/11/2020


Although our internal energy and sense of imperative may continue to be stirred up, today represents the beginning of a slowdown. Unfortunately, this may only increase frustration levels. We reach the 3rd quarter of the lunar cycle and the waning Moon is likely to begin to have us feeling somehow stuck. In today’s atmosphere, we may find that the frustration comes through in our dealings with others, especially if we are prone to blaming others for holding us back in some way. The desire to break free of restraints may have us looking for ways to break free of other people, leading to strains in our relationships. It is especially important here to take personal responsibility for our frustrations and not put too much pressure or place too much blame on those around us.

The moon in Taurus shares a harsh aspect with the Leo sun this morning, which could make for some big egos and stubborn behavior. People may rub you the wrong way, but try not to let it get the better of you. Watch out for personal insecurities as well, and don’t allow other people’s actions to affect your self-worth.

On a more positive note, the moon forms a trine with Jupiter, which will help lift spirits and reconnect us with our optimism. This aspect also promotes good luck, so even though your ego may be challenged, lean into your gratitude and any opportunity to reap some serious rewards.

Neptune joins the party later, adding a dreamy vibe to the day. On the one hand, you’ll be able to see some real beauty in the world today if you look for it. On the other, there may be some struggles, and you might feel as though you’re not being seen clearly. People may resist or not believe your ideas, dreams, goals, or fantasies, but it’s better to keep moving toward the things that are important to you and follow your heart.

As we roll into the evening, the moon and Pluto form a trine, creating intense emotions that can help to form deep connections with the people we care about. This aspect is also great for research and directing energy toward goals, so be sure to make the most of it! Just remember to tune out the naysayers and haters.
