Deer Moon Astrology 4/17/2021

The Gemini moon meets up with Mars this morning, and it’s a very chatty day. This is about forward movement and action meeting our emotions and sense of presence. If you get an invitation today, you should accept it if you can. There is potential for meetings that turn into long conversations. Just be sure to handle any business first. It would be easy to lose track of time as you share with others. You could look down and discover that hours have passed and you haven’t crossed anything off your to-do list.

The Moon makes an early morning trine to Jupiter and conjunction to Mars before going void-of-course at 8:02 AM PDT, possibly leading to some confusing misinformation. Once the Moon arrives in Cancer, at 12:25 PM PDT, our sensitivity builds significantly. Mercury’s square to Pluto encourages us to spout opinions, possibly without much firm, foundational support. Our frustration levels seem to simmer most of the day, especially if we have fallen victim to the increased expectations that have been floating around. This evening’s Moon-Venus sextile may offer some pleasant social interaction, soothing the sensitivity and frustration.

Inspiration is strong today, learn something new or teach something for fun. The excited and talkative vibe picks up later when the moon trines Jupiter. These are the feelings, conversations, and gifts we like to get. Enjoy the fun and happy atmosphere here. People are feeling extra friendly and interested in connecting, and they might even be willing to shell out a little cash because of it. Ask and ye shall receive. You’re worthy, and you can get what you deserve if you show up with a bold idea and a smile.

However, this day could bring feelings of anxiety, so beware of overstimulation, due to the connection between Mercury and Mars, Jupiter, and Pluto. All these feelings and thoughts and conversations could float around in your head and make you feel like the possibilities are endless. While they may be, you still have to organize them. Keep a pen and paper nearby as you engage in these conversations and receive these downloads. Let your faith in yourself take you as far as possible.

Essential meanings: A need to see beyond the superficial; the desire to don a mask or dress something up to disguise its true nature; trying to be something you’re not; chasing after every sparkling new thing; being mercurial.

Protection message: This is a signal to walk away from what you’re contemplating. There is a thin veneer of glitter and sparkle that masks something rotten underneath. Pursuing it will only bring about a difficult situation you will be sorry you got yourself into. Stay away. Isn’t it wonderful how Spirit protects you? Better things await!
