Deer Moon Astrology 5/2/2021

Oftentimes, it’s hard to own our part in a bad situation. It’s not that we don’t want to be responsible for it; it’s just that we don’t want the burden of having the negativity on our shoulders. This is why we sometimes argue and act defensively. Today’s aspect between Mercury and Pluto can activate those sentiments. It can also lead to major drama and power struggles if you don’t watch what you say and how you say it.

Before you engage in mind games or manipulation to get what you want, try to be mindful of how you’d like to be treated. Don’t use these tactics to achieve selfish goals. You can get everything you desire if you have some patience and are open to hearing what others have to say.

If the result isn’t what you anticipated, then it might be time to hit the pause button for a while and return to the matter when things have calmed down. It’s not that you necessarily want to control others, but the energy is urging you to dominate and be assertive. Some may not like the direct and blunt nature of today’s communication, while others will find it to be concise, helpful, and articulate. The one thing to be mindful of is tone.

Overall, it’s a powerful day in which anything can happen if you take the lead (or the Bull by the horns) and stand tall in your authority.

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.

  • Mercury is retrograde from May 29th and goes Direct on June 22nd in the signs of Gemini/Taurus

This is a day for balance – seeking it, applying it and making it the focus of your day. Things may get a little heated in certain situations and parts of your life. Temperance urges you to step back, count to 10 and respond thoughtfully. This is not a day for losing control nor is it wise to.

Your energy is likely to be high today, hence the need for temperance. You may get a lot done but you may also exhaust yourself by the end of the day. Pace yourself so you can complete your busy schedule successfully.

You may also find yourself examining the inner you, your life, your thoughts, your motives and embark on a deeper exploration through personal development books, courses techniques or even therapy.

Temperance carries with it a very strong spiritual message also. In achieving the equilibrium your heart and soul really seeks, you can feel a closer connection to the divine, experience stronger intuition and receive clear messages from higher sources.
