Deer Moon Astrology, 1/29/2021

We may need to slow down and take stock of our new awareness or risk quickly losing touch with our new baseline of internal self-worth. The Moon’s opposition to Mercury and quincunx to Venus may keep us uncomfortably off-balance or returning to a stance where we are trying to please others instead of honoring our internal messages and process. We may also be dealing with residual, hidden hostilities, especially from our past. Today presents us with the prospect of honoring and respecting the challenges (and challengers) in our past with the recognition that our previous obstacles can or have become new stepping stones. The impulsiveness that we have been facing all year has finally come down to a level of manageability but only through conscious self-discipline and self-awareness. By slowing down and taking time to consider our actions carefully it will be easier to manifest the necessary tools to use the available energy creatively and effectively. The Moon goes void-of-course at 5:53 PM PST this evening.

When the moon is waning, meaning it’s moving away from the full moon and getting smaller, it usually brings a calming or understanding energy. The waxing moon brings with it a sense that something is building or about to come to fruition. Right now, the moon is waning in the vibrant sign of Leo, so we have an interesting juxtaposition. The fast-paced and attention-seeking vibe of Leo is calmed by the soft currents of the waning moon, which can make for a very relaxing and chill experience today.

The moon also opposes Mercury now, which means that we’ll be able to express our feelings freely and clearly with loved ones if we’ve worked through any negative ideas that aren’t based in facts. If we have false ideas about our feelings, it could lead to scrambled communication with others that just end in arguments.

Your primal instincts will want to take over, so be cautious of anything along the lines of addictions or other triggers that could cause you to backslide into old behavior patterns. You’ve come so far in your journey, and today is not the day to fall down. Use the waning moon to help you level out, the Leo energy to add a little dark humor, and you should be good to go.
