Deer Moon Astrology, 2/16/2021

If you’ve refrained from telling someone something important or tried to hide your feelings about something, it’s all likely to come out when the moon squares Pluto around midday.

It might seem like this uncontrollable flood of things you didn’t think you were ready to handle is a bad thing, but that isn’t necessarily the case. In fact, it could be quite healing for you to get it all out in the open. Even if the epiphany is about your own unhelpful behaviors, examining your outlook, actions, and narrative to make necessary changes is better late than never.

In the evening, you get a cosmic kiss from the universe when the sun sextiles the moon. You feel an ease, and you get the sense that it’s safe to let down your guard and just be yourself. This means that if you realized some difficult things earlier in the day, you’ll be comfortable enough to handle it openly and authentically. This aspect also brings balance to communication with your partner, so use it!

Also tonight, the moon moves into the home-loving sign of Taurus, which further increases your urge to cuddle and talk to your partner. Finish the evening sharing some dessert on the couch. Allow yourself this indulgence—you deserve it!

The need for flexibility in the face of challenges is what seems to be most apparent today. The heightened optimism that inspires a demand for freedom and independence runs into a wide variety of obstacles and emotional blind spots. Detachment is needed to avoid drowning in vague fears and insecurities that will tend to drive us back towards a panicky use of brute force in an effort to protect some sense of security. An objective perspective should help us to stay away from rigid analysis that ignores creative opportunities. The Moon is briefly void-of-course this afternoon from 4:16 PM PST until 7:11 PM PST after which, the Moon’s arrival in Taurus helps us begin to stabilize our insecurities.
