Deer Moon Astrology, 9/4/2021

The Leo moon creates a fraught t-square with Saturn, which is retrograde in Aquarius, and Uranus, which is retrograde in Taurus. The tense fixed energy means you could be lost in your emotions because you aren’t prepared to make any major shifts in your personal life even if you should consider doing so.

Today’s lunar energy is reminiscent of the Leo new moon on August 8 that shifted and changed our world, or at least our perception of reality. This is the moment when we’re able to analyze the behaviors that were exposed then and decide how we can move forward from there.

Mercury in Libra shares a gentle connection with Saturn retrograde and the moon to give us some perspective on how we can deal with our passions and desires. You may not be ready to take action, which is totally okay. However, at least you’ll know that you need to slow your roll and take the time to reevaluate your decisions and commitments.

It’s also a great time to open up a conversation about power struggles and relationships that have been causing you a lot of anguish. Get the ball rolling so you can transform and evolve these partnerships to make them better in the future. Anything and everything is open to discussion now, so use the cosmic energy to heal your life.

Basic common sense rules the day today. Comfort may be difficult to come by. We may or may not find that our efforts to build consensus have been successful, but grumbling about our options will not be productive. There may be distractions and temptations around us today but we are unlikely to be very interested — there isn’t much fight in this atmosphere. We are at the dark of the Moon phase, prior to Monday’s Virgo New Moon (5:51 PM PDT 14° Virgo), when our cleanup efforts will be more productive. Under the coming New Moon, we will need to provide proof of both our loyalty and the value of our contribution to group efforts. We may also need to demonstrate that we have set aside individual differences in order to join the larger effort.
