Deer Moon Astrology 9/23/2020

Mercury reaches the shadow of the next retrograde phase ( October 14 – November 3) today. Mercury’s square to Saturn and opposition to Mars puts down a powerful marker, the significance of which may only be seen in hindsight as we move through and beyond the retrograde Mercury period. There is a stubborn determination here but also, an excruciating awareness that there is more than one perspective to be recognized. The Moon is void-of-course from 10:31 AM PDT until 4:16 PM PDT this afternoon and we may be especially defiant in the protection of our own perspective. But once the Moon arrives in Capricorn, we are more likely to be circumspect in our pronouncements and recognize the need for compromise.

The daily vibes acknowledge your efforts and mark a new season in the zodiac. The sun moves into the sign of Libra on the world axis point marking the autumnal equinox and a new change of direction for all. It’s that time of year when we’re all required to go inward and recognize what we harvested earlier in the season. Think of this as a halfway point during your 2020 experience.

It’s also a season of beauty, as well as an awareness of the balance still required for you to tackle your goals. With the waxing crescent moon still transiting Sagittarius, there is a delightfully playful energy that can give you the boost of love you deserve these days. Self-love and self-care are imperative right now. You might have to sit with yourself in certain respects, and maybe take some time away from the hustle and bustle of the world. This is the perfect day to set up an altar or honor your spirit guides in some way. There are plenty of things you can do to fully tap into this energy.
