Deer Moon Astrology 8/20/2020

Smooth progress and building confidence may begin to produce independent defiance that encourages us to take some questionable risks or stretch the truth a bit too far. However, if we can stick with maintaining confidence in our plans and strategies, we can go far today. The Virgo Moon opposes Neptune this morning (10:15 AM PDT), which sets off creative bursts of insight that are well-grounded. Our imaginations are stirred, yet we also have access to pragmatic tools that support that imagination. This is an extraordinary mix of idealistic passion and practical strategies. The Moon goes void-of-course this evening at 8:36 PM PDT.

As the moon continues its journey through Virgo, your eye for detail will be sharp. Though Virgo is the perfectionist of the zodiac, try not to get overly invested in small imperfections. A trine with Jupiter asks us to take a step back from our projects and look at things from a “big picture” point of view. There is a lot of potential to catch mistakes and learn from them today, but only if you choose to step outside of what you already know. Try not to be too rigid with your analytical vision, and allow creativity to flow while maintaining that drive for excellence.

This will be especially important as we roll into the afternoon and the moon forms an opposition to Neptune. This unpleasant aspect can make it difficult to praise your own work. The tendency to be overly critical of yourself is very real when this energy is present, so cut yourself a break and take a time-out if you begin to enter the realm of self-doubt.

Luckily, this energy begins to clear in favor of more helpful aspects from Pluto and Saturn as day turns to night. A sense of clarity is likely to rush over you, and you’ll begin to see ways in which you can harness your power and create structures geared toward helping you succeed.
