Deer Moon Astrology 8/12/2020


The Moon arrives in Gemini this morning at 6:45 AM PDT after a brief overnight void-of-course period. Yesterday’s intensity seems to have lifted and we may need to do some fence-mending in a recognition that those who we have blamed for holding us back could actually be important allies. Today’s focus is on opening — or reopening — lines of communication. Tonight’s Mars-Pluto square raises the stakes incredibly high but we should remember that this is the first of three Mars-Pluto squares so we’ll be chewing on these issues for most of the rest of the year. Our work today is focused on communicating our vision of how we see ourselves moving forward.

After midnight, the healing asteroid Chiron blows a kiss to the moon, giving you even more drive. Chiron’s current placement is in Aries, which will make it a great time to show some initiative at work and with personal goals. If there are any projects you’ve been putting off, now is the time to finally bite the bullet and get started.

This energy can sometimes create a bit of insomnia, though, so try to avoid screens an hour before bed and brew yourself some calming tea. This motivating energy lasts until morning, so aim for an early start! The energy will be high, but the mood should stay positive.
