Deer Moon Astrology 4/22/2021

Things could feel a little dreamy today, and that’s due to the Leo moon causing minor frustration with Neptune in Pisces. Use the energy of the day to start or work on a passion project. Dream of what you can have and believe it to be yours. There’s also a lot of potential for spirituality now.

Children could bring you special messages and memories that you didn’t know you needed. Your childhood may also come up from deep in your subconscious today. Think about the things you enjoyed as a child and what you’re enjoying as an adult. If you’re not doing anything that brings that childlike curiosity and wonder to the forefront, this is the day to make a change. Building blocks, modeling clay, and video games are all viable ways to make your inner child smile.

The Leo moon sextiles Mars in Gemini later today, and there’s a spark in the evening that bodes well for enjoying something light and easy. Schedule something fun with the people you love. They’re going to make sure that you feel nurtured.

This can also be a great time to make strides in romance. Enjoy some time playing with your lover. Let your emotions guide you toward love, and let your actions be inspired by love. Joy reigns supreme tonight, so you might want to make some wishes. Wish for love, show generosity, and have fun. 

We gain a degree of clarity surrounding this week’s transitions and begin to feel significantly more comfortable with the change of pace. This atmosphere fosters a new round of planning or some kind of adjustment that brings us some sense of future stability. Nonetheless, there is an increasing level of detachment — bordering on disconnection — that may put some kind of a strain on personal relationships. Our personal sense of passion is undergoing a change in focus as Mars prepares to leave Gemini for Cancer. Venus conjuncts Uranus today, intensifying a desire for independence and freedom. With both Mars and Venus highlighted, there may be a number of shifts in how we interact with those who are closest to us. This is part of a process pushing us towards deepening our intentions.

*Waxing gibbous means it’s getting visually wider and wider from day to day, culminating in a full moon. After the full moon, it gets narrower and narrower each day, which is waning gibbous – then it reaches quarter moon (so-called half-moon) – then it is a waning crescent until it reaches new moon.

Imagine a winter’s day when you wake up & the sun is shining. Everything feels better. You are lifted & renewed, just at the very sight of the sun, the blue sky & the recalling of summer memories – doesn’t it feel good?

The Sun brings blessings, good tidings and a reminder that you have what it takes to succeed, you’ve just forgotten. The Sun says, “You have your power – if you’ve given it away, take it back; if you’ve misplaced it, know you only have to feel the warmth on your face to remember where it is.”

All this adds up to a great day before you – within yourself and from outside for the Sun also brings glad tidings – news of pregnancies, proposals, engagements – good news of all types. Don’t sit around waiting to hear though, use the energy from our life giving orb & make the most of your day.
