Deer Moon Astrology 8/21/2020

Venus has settled into Cancer quite comfortably, encouraging cooperation and creativity. Venus is also supporting Mercury’s transit through Virgo, settling our minds and encouraging an ability to ferret out intricate patterns and incorporate them into our ongoing planning. Of course, our comfort level is still unsettled by the approaching Mars-Saturn square, which demands both independent action and thoughtful caution. We somehow pull all of these factors together into a harmonious melody of activity and creativity today. Spontaneous and lively interactions feed our confidence. We seem to find less concern for bolstering our ego. Appreciation is easier and prideful boasts are less and less necessary.

The moon moves into Libra this morning, giving us a much-needed opportunity to find balance. You may have felt a little tightly wound the past couple of days, but the vibe right now is perfect for decompressing. The energy is light and you may feel as though you’re flowing from task to task. Be sure to engage with your softer side a bit and indulge in fabrics, scents, and clothing that remind you of beauty.

There’s a slight hiccup later as the moon opposes Chiron, which is currently in Aries. You may encounter others who are looking for balance but unable to create it for themselves. Libra energy gives us a tendency to put the comfort of others before our own, so watch out for interactions that are draining for you. If you’re naturally empathic, you might need to disengage from people who deplete your energy. Issues around injustice or unfairness may also arise for you, which can create powerful triggers that throw you out of your zen zone.

Luckily, as you glide into nightfall, these issues should dissipate in time for you to have a calm and carefree evening at home. Be sure to enjoy some self-care tonight like a pedicure, facial, or bath. Today’s intensity level is low, so enjoy it!
