Deer Moon Astrology 10/13/2020

The need for acknowledgement and recognition drives today’s activity, increasing the intensity of this emotional powder keg. However, the Virgo Moon does not encourage the kind of effusive praise that we may be looking for. In fact, we may encounter significant skepticism, slowing down the success of any initiatives that we have been working on. The need for cooperation and friendly alliances may be obvious to onlookers but those directly involved in the fray — disputes or standoffs — may refuse to stand down from independent stands. Mercury turns retrograde this evening and begins the process of reviewing these independent stands, pushing us to find a deeper level of truth and understanding. At least initially, our focus in this process is protective of our close inner circle — our family or our tribe.

The key to this day is to follow your heart. The ambitious Libra sun in a hefty square to Jupiter in Capricorn sheds light on issues surrounding your personal truth and where you are seeking justice. If you’ve been holding back emotionally, remember to take a stand even if you don’t know what it will look like on the other side. Seeing things from every angle is going to tug at your mentality.

Mercury in erotic Scorpio connects to a supportive sextile with Venus in practical Virgo. Your love and romantic needs are met with these aspects, which can even move a love story forward.

Even as a long void-of-course moon in Leo begins midday, there is still compassion and kindness to be felt. The lunar energy is chilling in a fixed sign, requesting you to get on your throne and own your royal powers. Sit back and let others dote on you, showing you just how much those you love care about you. You might even get an unexpected text message from your current crush that’s been a long time coming. They’re finally letting you know how they really feel, and it might be harder for them to do than they’re letting on.

It’s definitely a day for others to make some moves on your behalf. Financial matters and career opportunities can come back around in your favor, as the solar energies both encourage and encapsulate the settling of some karmic affairs. There are plenty of planetary negotiations going on, stressing that you stay aware from your personal vantage point.
