Deer Moon Astrology 8/22-8/23/2020

SATURDAY, 8/22/2020: The Sun arrives in Virgo this morning, further stabilizing our confidence, while also diminishing the nagging ego concerns. However, there is a definite need for self-control today as we begin to turn our focus towards what is still in front of us. Our attention shifts away from introspection and concerns over how we appear to others. This is a very pragmatic atmosphere which encourages steady, concerted effort. We’ll do better by attending to the task at hand today. Anti-social attitudes may surface if we feel at all hemmed in. Creative independence needs to honor the contributions of others. Hidden hostilities and long standing grudges will lead us far astray if we aren’t able to stay focused on maintaining steady effort.

SUNDAY, 8/23/2020: The frustrating Mars-Saturn square is nearly complete today but helped immensely by the Moon’s arrival in Scorpio, and the Sun’s recent arrival in Virgo. Mars, in it’s home sign of Aries, desperately wants to buck the orderly rules and restrictions of Saturn, also in it’s home sign of Capricorn. However, the Sun and Moon help us exceedingly well to appreciate how order actually serves our desire for freedom. The Virgo Sun helps us to understand the value of orderly process, while the Scorpio Moon encourages us to look for deeper truth within the order of rhythmic cycles. On the mundane level, we may find ourselves extraordinarily energized today, seeking to grab hold of whatever opportunities we find. With just a bit of self-discipline, we will recognize the essential value of timing and resolve to make a definitive plan of action, rather than impulsively lurch ahead. In essence, today demands that we make and follow orderly plans or risk extreme frustration.
