Deer Moon Astrology 5/3/2021

Mercury, in the last degrees of Taurus, squares off with Jupiter in the morning. This energy can create a larger-than-life vibe when it comes to how we express ourselves. You might overpromise, put your foot in your mouth, or make rash decisions. Tempers could flair or positivity could reign. Whichever road you choose to take, it’s important to note that there is an exuberant energy in the air that will make us all want to climb every mountain and attain every desire.

The warning is that the Taurus sun and Saturn in Aquarius square off today, holding us back from making and taking great leaps of faith in reaching personal goals. We would rather invest time in planning the details than blindly trust the process and others. Avoid putting all your eggs in one basket, but if it’s necessary, do it with extreme caution.

Mercury enters Gemini later in the day, making it a wonderful time to call your friends and family for an in-depth gossip session. Mercury loves being in Gemini, which means communication can be a little easier and flow better.

The chatty planet turns retrograde on May 29, which means that most of the events that occur in the beginning of the month will be pivotal during the retrograde. Any story started today will repeat itself until you get it right. Therefore, it’s important that you put your best foot forward when it comes to communicating with others.

This morning’s Sun-Saturn square and subsequent Moon-Saturn conjunction may increase the sense of restriction and lead some to believe that there’s a plot afoot to block our way. Paranoia or some feeling of impending doom may distract us from the very real need to address the restrictions head-on, make adjustments, and forge ahead. Rather than take the restrictions personally, we will do better to look for what it is within us that must change in order to see past the road blocks and find a new way forward. The nature of these lessons may feel particularly harsh and, indeed, personal. However, creativity and determination is not wasted in this atmosphere. Mercury arrives in Gemini this evening, encouraging a more curious approach to understanding the restrictions we’re feeling.
