Deer Moon Astrology 4/16/2021

It’s a day about adulting, and much like adulting, once you get there, you won’t have much choice in the responsibilities department. Be clear to yourself and others about your needs, and get to work on being accountable for them. The sooner you acknowledge your strength the better.

It’s likely to be a bustling and busy day that comes with some upsets concerning what you want at the core and what the authorities that coexist within your desires have to say about it. If you’re not too pushy, you can move forward.

However, choosing to be childish about it will get you a firm no and a kick in the pants. There is no fast way to handle anything today. You’re just going to have to flow with it rather than against it. This energy can also bring out a blend of strength and passion that leads to the right kind of personal empowerment. If you set a goal today, you’ll reach and perhaps exceed it.

Mars trines Jupiter late this evening and brings a powerful gift. This could be exactly what you’ve been asking for, but the key here is to temper yourself. If you suddenly get a bold idea, write it down. You need to see the big picture first, and it’s best to focus on the details later. Once you’ve got it all written down, you’ll be able to collaborate with other people to set your plans in motion.

The enthusiasm of today’s Mars-Jupiter trine is likely to expand our exceptions and increase our energy levels. However, we are also dealing with the pressure of the Sun’s square to Pluto, raising the stakes and continuing to have some of us trying to prove something. There may seem to be a rather superficial optimism on display but we are wise to recognize that there is a great deal going on behind the scenes. The challenges are real and should not be minimized or ignored. The whirl of ideas and insights should not be mistaken for definitive plans or even potential goals. In fact, the high energy levels may obscure the very significant tendency to procrastinate on making any tangible progress. Even so, if we actually are able to muster enough focus and ignore the power struggles, there is significant potential to move towards our goals today.

The Spirit Animal Oracle by Colette Baron-Reid

Have you been channeling all your affection to just one person, or counting on only one friend or individual to hold you up, heedless of your resources all around you? You deserve support and love from many people, and when Otter Spirit arrives, you are reminded that you have a community.

Somewhere is another friend who wants to experience the joy of giving to you and seeing your happiness as you receive their gift of attention, affection, and kindness. Otter Spirit wants you to open your eyes to see the love that is available to you from all directions. Do you believe it? Do you feel it?

Reach out to someone, and you will see that they want to hold your hand as much as you want to hold theirs. Love, support, and friendship are available to you, so connect with community and friends.
