Deer Moon Astrology 12/16/2020

Mercury moves over the position of last Monday’s New Moon, aiding communication and providing insight into exactly what this lunar cycle is stirring. We can see more clearly today that we are stepping through a doorway into an entirely new dimension of thinking and approaches. For some of us, the sense of newness is intimidating, daunting, or uncomfortable. However, there is also some level of excitement and some connection to a pioneering spirit. Saturn enters Aquarius this evening, attended closely be the Moon. We enter an era where the weaknesses in our structures can no longer be tolerated or hastily patched. We need to think in new ways about how to build entirely new structures. Since Jupiter is hot on the heels of Saturn and will arrive in Aquarius by Saturday, expansion will accompany the building of a new frameworks that we must now begin to undertake.

Venus began its journey in Sagittarius yesterday, and as we begin to settle into that energetic shift, we feel more generous with our love and optimistic when it comes to matters of the heart.

In terms of romance, you’re in the mood to visualize a future with that special someone, but the Capricorn moon also lends us some much-needed discernment. Allow your mind and heart to work together today to avoid getting swept up in grandiose and emotionally charged plans for your life moving forward. Allow yourself to lean into love, but don’t let it take away your logic.

An unbalanced aspect between the moon and north node could make it especially difficult to see clearly into the future if you allow your feelings to assume control over your thoughts.

The moon forms a conjunction to Pluto about midday, which could cause emotions to run extremely deep. We will be looking to take relationships to the next level, but be careful not to rush into anything too quickly.

The moon and Pluto form a difficult aspect to Mars, which could cause you to make mistakes if you act without thinking things through (so avoid making any sudden commitments or eloping). This aspect can also trigger aggression, so watch out for anger in yourself and others, and remove yourself from any situations that don’t feel calm or safe.
