Deer Moon Astrology 5/1/2021

The Taurus sun shares a minor aspect with the lunar nodes of destiny, giving us a push to reach our goals. When this happens, we can feel the cosmic energy transforming our lives, but not at the strength of a full-blown aspect. While today’s energy may not be very astrologically potent, it can and will bring dreams to fruition by helping us manifest them. The caution is that we might be uncertain about what we want to create and receive from the universe. In order to get abundance, it’s important to have a clear plan.

Luckily, last night’s opposition between the Capricorn moon and Mars in Cancer can give you the energy to go after your innermost dreams. This could simply mean making professional alliances or connecting with like-minded people. One thing is certain: you’ll be able to find the spark within you that leads to identifying your truest path and calling.

The nodes of destiny are activated, which means that fate is using its heavy hand. The Capricorn moon is giving us the drive to perform and make things happen. All in all, it’s a magical day in which you can shoot for the stars if you’re eager and ready to take a leap of faith. The more you move toward your dreams, the better you’ll feel about leaning into your personal destiny today and in the future.

There are opportunities to create tangible markers that help us continue to lock in the gains we are making through creative inspiration and following the beat of our own different drummer. However, we may also find ourselves more enmeshed in a struggle with self-doubt, discouragement, and disconnection. Some will be aggressive, self-righteous, and defiant — marking a step back into rebelliousness — while others may be tempted to give up and accept an easier path. Our dedication and faith is likely to be tested in some way here. Nonetheless, what we have seen — what has inspired us this week — cannot be unseen and won’t be denied no matter how much we might like to go back to something or somewhere more comfortable and acceptable.

Sing your own song

Protection Message: Are you suppressing your true voice, perhaps trying to sing the song you think people want to hear instead of your own? You create a cage around your life when you express only what you think will help you fit in and get what you think you want. Are you hiding the real you, telling a safe story about yourself to others because you are afraid they will think you are too “different” if they knew the truth?

Canary Spirit comes to help you express yourself in a more honest and authentic way. Yes, not everyone will agree with you; in fact, not everyone will want to hear your originality or accept your uniqueness. You must not give this a single care. There will be plenty of people, opportunities, and wonderful new experiences that arrive as if by magic once you open your own cage door and fly free.
