Deer Moon Astrology 9/17/2020

By taking a steady and methodical approach, we can begin to make great progress today. Today’s Virgo New Moon (4:00 AM PDT 25° Virgo) trines Saturn and encourages us to make a plan and stick with it. Nonetheless, Mercury’s square to Jupiter and forming square to Pluto could easily keep us distracted — worried about what others are doing rather than staying in our own lane. However, by around noon today, the Moon’s arrival in Libra serves to begin opening doors to extremely productive cooperation and collaboration, especially as we begin to look ahead and initiate a new round of planning. As we make our plans, though, we may have to hold the reigns tightly in order to keep from setting expectations too high.

Today brings sudden and unexpected surprises along with a day that could require a lot of patience in general. As the influence continues today of Venus in passionate Leo squaring Uranus in grounding Taurus, there is a give and take between what you want versus what actually is occurring. If you feel the need to stand in your truth, this is the day when you could meet some opposition. This fixed energy doesn’t want to budge for anyone’s preconceived expectations. However, Uranus is going to kick you right out of your comfort zone whether you’re ready or not.

The Virgo waning crescent moon helps bring things around by allowing a more analytical approach toward everything. Maybe these are the changes you really needed in order to step into a more authentic version of yourself after all.

Even if you feel a little scattered right now, it doesn’t mean that there’s no light at the end of the tunnel. There’s a generous amount of earth energy in the sky as well. This helps the financial end of things and deepens your commitment and maturity in this part of your life. You have to stick with the vision and allow for the rest to unfold.
