Deer Moon Astrology, 4/30/2021

The sun and Uranus link up in Taurus today, making us want to give our all to helping others. Humanitarianism is strong, motivating us to step up our charitable game. It’s a great time to commit to a charity and help those in need. Giving generously can help everyone in society to thrive. Therefore, it’s time to pay it forward. Hopefully, others will be motivated to do the same.

It’s also a wonderful time to embrace your unique sentiments. All your life you may have felt that you walked to the beat of your own drum. Now you can live your life on your terms without caring what other people think. The same can be said about your ideals and beliefs.

The only challenge is to not get too fanatical about expressing your views. If you do, it means that you aren’t listening to what other people are saying. Get off your soapbox and hear everyone out. By calmly discussing your different opinions, you’ll be able to make the changes you want. Others might even change their views as they start to see your side of the matter. You can attract more bees with honey than vinegar, which is why you should be kindhearted as you assert your opinions. Odds are others just want to be heard, which is something we’re all trying to achieve today.

The Moon is once again void-of-course early, from 6:26 AM PDT until 9:15 AM PDT this morning. The Moon’s arrival in Capricorn and the Sun’s conjunction with Uranus help us to lock in our creative, non-conformist initiatives. We seem to be able to maintain a detached sense of individual purpose which we are able to deftly convey to others in a way that helps to make our non-conformity seem more acceptable. Nonetheless, it is likely that internal doubts begin to simmer today, along with some potential to feel misunderstood. Detachment and non-conformity can be a two-edged sword that holds us apart when we would really like some acceptance for our individual expression.

Ladies, you’ll breeze through today. Gentlemen, hold onto your hats! Today will be action packed and require your full attention across the board. Your key role today is of the multitasker.

It seems that everyone and everything wants a piece of you, including your family, a run through your finances, a late call into work, the cakes you promised to make your 6 year old for school, a friend who’s stuck and needs your help…. the list could go on and on.

But no worries, you can handle it. The 2 of Pentacles is all about the balancing act and says that whatever you have to deal with today, and there will be lots of it, you’ll do so without batting an eyelid.
