Deer Moon Astrology 10/8/2020

The day opens with a void-of-course moon still chilling in the sign of Gemini, giving everyone time to process some arguments that went down yesterday. You might just have to take a step back from someone right now and regroup. Doing the self-care work you need early in the morning will give you a fuller perspective about what’s going on.

Later, the waning moon enters the sign of protective Cancer, which is a highly emotional aspect in general, linked to mothers and helpful women. Music, art, dance, and anything that strikes your creative fancy will be the most therapeutic mechanism to set you on track.

The interpersonal lessons you’re experiencing are the same being felt by everyone around you. There are people who will rub you the wrong way and those who just get you fundamentally. It’s up to you to decide where to best comfort yourself through this process. If you were your own caretaker, how would you want to be nurtured?

Breakthroughs are highly possible because Mercury in Scorpio still reflects the unpredictable lessons of Uranus in Taurus. A lot of this has to do with finances and feeling secure, also including but not limited to your physical location. If you don’t like the way someone is treating you, this is the time to handle your life directly and with conviction. Be very careful, though, because these skies also can account for those who are stuck in abusive relationships. Remember to reach out to people if you feel like you need help. You are not alone by any means, but these cosmic alignments ask for numerous independent decisions to be made at once.

We’re inclined to take our battles (and our insights) undercover or behind the scenes today. Whatever certainty we feel may not be shared by everyone (or anyone) and so we pull back and quietly look for alternate routes. For some, this may suggest underhanded or devious tactics. However, we may find incredible power through quiet and methodical actions taken beyond the view of others — in secret. We should be extremely careful though, since there is a tendency to avoid doing any kind of check ins that would give us feedback or advice. Today’s Cancer Moon encourages the deceptiveness and protectiveness in this atmosphere. There is actually considerable progress possible here but we should check our motivations and intentions extremely carefully.
