Deer Moon Astrology 5/4/2021

The moon is in Aquarius, which means that we are taking the time to understand and see things from a distance. This different perspective can give us clarity on situations and relationships and help us decide how we want to handle our emotional actions in the future.

Venus squares off with the moon today, putting relationships and money front and center as the day’s objectives. However, it doesn’t mean that there is tension brewing concerning others or money. It does mean that we’ll want to make decisions and take action when it comes to these matters.

There is a chance that we could playfully argue with a partner or crush, but nothing major will occur through this energy. Venus often adds optimism to emotions when in hard aspect and adds an over-the-top approach to how heartfelt sentiments are expressed.

When Jupiter connects with the moon in Aquarius today, it adds an abundant feeling of optimism and joy. Matters concerning the home and romance will be at the forefront of your mind and heart. You want to explore possibilities in relationships and move things forward.

All in all, today is a wonderfully rich time to move toward what and who you love without hesitation. Cook a great dinner for two complete with candlelight or treat yourself to something magical and healing like a massage. Today is an amazing day to connect with yourself too.

There is an emerging recognition of our need to revitalize a personal sense of self-worth today — possibility an increased sense of power that helps us to find new ways to approach any sense of limitations or restrictions. Today’s developing awareness may seem a bit mysterious or surprising, something like an ah-hah! moment that helps us recognize the need to believe in ourselves before we can realistically hope that others will believe in us. The Moon goes briefly void-of-course in Aquarius late this afternoon, from 5:05 PM PDT until 7:08 PM PDT, when a few too many ideas may have us spinning our wheels. Nonetheless, with the Moon’s arrival in Pisces, we find increasing intuitive guidance to re-orient ourselves to an improving sense of personal empowerment.

Enjoy the feeling of success today. You earned it.

Doesn’t it feel good to win? Especially when that win took time and effort? There is a competitive edge to this card & traditional imagery suggests combat. This can relate to battles of all kinds – legal, personal, party political – you name it, it’s covered.

On a personal level though, whatever you’ve been battling, know that the tables have turned, a shift has occurred and victory is yours. Think of this card as one small step in a sequence of many. Today you won – yay! Tomorrow brings a new challenge, and the day after that and so on.

Allow yourself to savour the moment though and if it was a big win, you’ve earned the right to party. Get down and groove.

Let us also ask the question: what is winning to you? If you watch The Call to Courage by Brene Brown, you will learn that sometimes just showing up when you know you cannot win the race means you’ve won. This is a very personal way to look at it but in the microcosm of our life, just facing something seemingly insurmountable is winning. Showing up is winning. It’s a personal victory, not an external one but one that is surely more worthy.
