Deer Moon Astrology 4/23/2021

This week’s process of transition completes today as Mars leaves Gemini, possibly finding itself a bit submerged by the watery moods of Cancer. There may be some tendency to indulge in sensuous desire, even though the Virgo Moon is encouraging us to maintain an orderly process. The atmosphere encourages some kind of erratic or unpredictable behavior, possibly even some sort of deception or distraction. Even though our emotions may be a bit unsteady, Mercury’s conjunction with Uranus sparks amazing intellectual insights and potential breakthroughs. We may feel especially free to explore new ideas with the intention of acquiring some new skills or techniques. Today’s power is found through honoring and recognizing our unique creative potential, despite our inner conflicts or contradictions.

Action planet Mars enters temperamental Cancer today. This means that we’re slowing our roll and not going into situations blindly. You are cautious and protective in all endeavors, which will keep you from moving forward too swiftly. There could be delays and setbacks as a result, making you want to take a step back from manifesting your dreams.

Another possibility is that you aren’t getting enough rest and so could be a bit irritable. Try to get enough sleep at night or take a catnap during the day to rejuvenate your energy. If you don’t, there’s a good chance that you won’t be able to stay awake during the day. Odds are you’ll want to hit the hay early this evening.

Also, don’t suppress your feelings. Speak up! No one can intuit what is on your mind and in your heart. Holding it all in can create tension on your part and with colleagues and those you care about. Instead of moping around and staying silent, express your sentiments. You can even write an e-mail (one that’s carefully worded to make sure you don’t rub others the wrong way) to let people know your heartfelt thoughts. You can’t control how they’ll respond, only how you react and engage. Be cognizant of this situation before you proceed. Healing can and will occur if you let others take the time they need to hear and feel your words.

Archangel Animal Oracle Deck by Diana Cooper

This is the master card of the Peaceful Spiritual Warrior. You are called on to strengthen and discipline yourself, claim your power, and act as a calm, wise influence for the highest good of all. To do this, you’ll need to develop all five senses to tune in to the needs of those around you.

Sometimes when we are called to service, we lose ourselves in what is “best for everyone else.” However, it is critical that we remember, what is for our highest and best good is good for everyone else. So, be sure not to forget you. Be clear about what brings you satisfaction and bring more of it into your life. The more contentment you feel, the more you will be able to give back in service.
