Deer Moon Astrology, 5/10/2021

Today’s atmosphere is highly intellectual, spurred by the Moon’s sextile to Mars and conjunction with Uranus. The excitement is not frenetic but rather, quite focused and deliberate without feeling restrictive. The only boundaries that we are likely to come across are found in issues surrounding our self-esteem. Our ideas must be shared with others but if we are more worried about their reception than the true value of our perspective, we may stumble. Nonetheless, today’s intellectual excitement provides an extra dose of growing power to tomorrow’s Taurus New Moon (11:59 AM PDT 21° Taurus).

Mercury is extremely active today, which means that it’s an important time to watch out for miscommunications and information received from others.

The morning starts with a rush when Mercury in Gemini and Mars in Cancer share a minor connection and give energy to each other. It could be a morning when you wake up to many texts and e-mails or jump out of bed with enthusiasm. The only caution is that you could be seeking drama or high-energy communication, which is why it’s advisable to put a pin in particularly frustrating matters.

Mercury and the north node of destiny align around lunchtime, which means that you have the possibility of making a fated connection that could be helpful to your future. Also, any declarations could come to fruition if you want to move toward the proposed vision and dream.

Mercury and the centaur Chiron in Aries share an amazing connection, allowing you to talk in the evening about any drama of the morning. If you want to talk things out, healing can happen. Sharing feelings can be scary, but it can mend a situation and help you reach a whole different level.

Mercury and Uranus in Taurus share a minor aspect around bedtime, giving us a moment to find resolve in unexpected ways. It could be as simple as joining forces with others or feeling supported by people we thought didn’t care.
