Deer Moon Astrology 5/5/2021

There are many juxtaposing energies at play today, causing confusion about which sentiment to lean into. A potentially very challenging morning is followed by a healing evening.

Mars shares a minor aspect with Saturn, which gives us the opportunity to move toward a place of authority. The caution is that you could become too bossy and want to control others. Sometimes it’s hard to let things pass without reacting, and this could be one of those days. Holding back your feelings and reining in the need to supervise will be hard, especially if you’re projecting feelings onto others and situations.

Jupiter and Uranus share a minor aspect, which could exacerbate these sentiments. To be honest, it could make us feel like we’re right for asserting our dominance when in fact it isn’t necessarily needed to help a situation move along. Arguments may happen; some people will be passive and others confrontational. Therefore, it’s important to check the emotions and vibe before arguing with anyone who’s annoying you.

Later in the day, Venus shares a minor frustration with centaur Chiron, offering us a way to heal these relationships in the evening. The question is if you’re ready to kiss and make up. Authentically apologizing and accepting an apology from others can be complex if you aren’t really ready to drop the drama and move forward. How do you want to proceed? Think about this and then make your decision.

We suddenly begin to find breakthroughs and openings today that may have seemed impossible earlier in the week. Our evolving sense of self-worth has begun to open doors and reveal new opportunities. This is a rather spontaneous and unpredictable environment, where we need to stay flexible and alert. The Pisces Moon encourages flexibility and helps us to embrace the intuitive flashes of insight that are showing us how to change our approach and trust our internal guidance system to inform our decisions. Of course, personal responsibility and self-discipline is also important here. Imagination, blended with deliberate action, can show us the way to move past limitations and the feeling of being stuck.

Oracle Message: What you think, you can make real

It’s a powerful day when you see the Magician. It suggests the powers you have to influence people and events is stronger and more effective. This requires you to take responsibility for whatever situations you create and actions you impart. There is an element of cause and effect today, so be aware of what you are doing because there are consequences to everything we do whether we see it initially or not.

That said, enjoy your heightened powers and make the best of what is before you. Any arena of influence is heightened today meaning sales are great, contracts are signed & those who were holding back will now listen to you. You appear to have the Midas Touch & everything can go well today.

Remember: thoughts become things & with your heightened awareness today, you can literally think your reality into being. Be mindful, all day.
