Deer Moon Astrology 1/8/2021

Venus arrives in Capricorn today, possibly bringing our enthusiasm crashing down to Earth. On the other hand, today’s dose of reality helps us to focus more directly on maintaining our power and control in order to make exponential gains. As Venus arrives in Capricorn it makes a potent trine to Mars, newly arrived in Taurus. As Mars approaches a conjunction with Uranus, Venus will serve to help us steady the energy as it is released. This may result in the arrival or recognition of new alliances as well as a new sense of freedom and independence. Mercury also changes signs today, leaving restrictive Capricorn for the freedom of Aquarius. Wednesday’s disorientation has lead to today’s new sense of awareness and adventure. Although the weight may seem to have increased, so too has our ability to bear it. The Moon goes void-of-course early this evening at 5:58 PM PST. We may suffer some temporary bouts of paranoia and doubt.

Mercury and Venus change signs today, making it an energetically charged day. The planet of communication enters Aquarius, making us look at matters from a distance in order to gain clarity on them. This energy adds to the Aquarian energy already in place (Jupiter and Saturn are in Aquarius). Therefore, it can act as a catalyst to expand your mind and help you make discerning decisions.

Mercury starts its retrograde journey in Aquarius on January 30. Watch the stories that evolve now because we’ll be dealing with them again during the retrograde. Pay attention to what begins to formulate now.

With Venus in Capricorn, this planetary switch makes us more aware of our spending habits and how we give or receive love. You won’t be giving your affections freely without knowing where a situation, relationship, or investment is going. Also, love will take time to grow. Venus in Capricorn doesn’t jump into matters without thinking. There’s a lot of forethought that’s goes into how this energy commits and aligns with others. You could be a little Scrooge-like with money because you’ll want to save your pennies for a rainy day over the next few weeks and not be such a spendthrift.
