Deer Moon Astrology, 4/11/2021

The Aries moon cuddles up to communicative Mercury in the early hours of this morning, which could manifest in a busy mind that makes falling or staying asleep difficult. For those of you who managed to make it to dreamland last night, this energy is perfect for receiving messages from beyond the veil. If you had any interesting adventures in the astral realm, be sure to write them down for review later.

Fortunately, we tend to get a boost in our energy level when the moon is in Aries, so fatigue is unlikely to be an issue. There is a small chance that you or others could get a little snappish, so remember to connect with your patience if anyone gets on your nerves today.

The energy tonight brings a dose of good vibes to your ego and ambitions. The new moon this evening encourages you to think about your deepest desires and goals. Set your intentions for what you hope to accomplish in the coming months, and don’t be afraid to shoot for the stars.

Once you’ve taken a moment to connect with yourself and your dreams, take some time to engage with your creative side and any passion projects you put on the back burner. Participate in activities that make you feel happy and accomplished as an individual, and keep moving on your path toward evolution and self-improvement! 

The Aries New Moon (7:30 PM PDT 22° Aries, 4/12/2021) offers tremendous potential and opportunity. Nonetheless, the environment is fraught with hidden agendas and secret desires. Although it may seem incredibly unsafe to simply let it all hang out — be open, honest and direct about what we really want — that is the message that this New Moon is delivering to us. Honesty and optimism may seem to be naïve strategies but are actually the most powerful tools that we have in this environment. This is an especially powerful growing force that provides support for numerous new initiatives. Courage and direct action are far more powerful than we can see from today’s perspective. It is optimism and faith that is the crucial ‘propellant’ for moving us through the uncertainty and challenging personal interactions.
