Deer Moon Astrology 3/17/2021

Mercury actually moved out of the previous retrograde shadow last week but the forming Mercury-Pallas conjunction and today’s Mars-Chiron sextile bring us to an important clarification point where we can resolve important questions that have been left over from the past retrograde period (most of February). The opportunity for resolution is profound and important but we may also feel some disappointment when we glimpse today’s clearer perspective. We may be especially sensitive to any past mistakes. Essentially, the overall atmosphere is geared to helping us to create order out of chaos, employing creativity and inspiration. The challenge is to keep our eyes on the prize, sidestep our emotional sensitivities, and find some ability to detach through faith.

Today’s waxing moon is in the cozy sign of Taurus. When the moon is transiting through Taurus, we’re concerned mainly with family and people who feel as close as family. We can even feel slightly possessive of them. Matters at home are of far more interest at this time, and you may just want to cuddle up peacefully and comfortably with your favorite people. You may be more inclined toward opulence than usual. There’s nothing wrong with a little decadence sometimes, so go for it!

Later, the moon squares Saturn, setting the tone for the rest of the day. There is a heaviness that may dampen the joy of the Taurus moon, and a tendency to think about things in negative ways. Any guilt, failure, regret, flaw, or other problem could be all-consuming at this time, so it might be difficult to feel close to anyone. Hopefully, the two transits can balance one another out enough that you can at least practice some self-care, which is highly advised even if you believe you don’t deserve it or want it right now.

The good news is that any unhealthy relationships are bound to end today. While it might be painful, accept it and let them go. It’s truly for your highest good. If the bitterness of this transit gets the better of you, do something nice for yourself. You might also get a lot out of journaling and making a gratitude list to help shift the narrative back to positive.
