Deer Moon Astrology 5/14/2021

The Moon goes void-of-course early this morning following an uncomfortable square to Neptune and won’t arrive in Cancer until 6:30 PM PDT this evening. We may struggle with some sense of loss or suddenly become concerned that we are moving too fast — leaving behind important elements of our legacy or our past. There may be some concern that we haven’t established enough depth to stabilize the progress we have been seeking this week. What we may feel is lacking is some overall sense of depth. This week’s atmosphere has been highly intellectual but we may not have a clear sense that we are honoring a deeper sense of connection. In reality, this is likely the first of several ‘gut checks’ that are important to keep us stabilized and grounded.

The moon in Gemini brings healing vibes and encourages us to be good listeners. Relationships are give and take; they aren’t one-sided. Instead of demanding that you get all the attention, or vice versa, think about the direction that you want the relationship to go.

You’ll need to be a bit discerning when it comes to conversations today. Remember that social interactions are about both giving and receiving. After you’ve spoken your piece, stay and hear what the other person has to say.

However, you might also want to create some boundaries with those who need your TLC. Don’t be afraid to set limits. Make sure you don’t end up in the role of therapist for someone who wants to lay all their problems on you and then bail before you have a chance to talk about yours. Don’t get stuck being the one who always provides the shoulder to cry on.

The energy lightens up a bit in the evening, giving us a chance to mentally engage with spiritual mentors who can offer us insight. We could also feel foggy and in the mood to rest rather than run around nonstop.

The moon enters Cancer tonight, calming these energies and giving us a chance to decompress after the heightened anxieties from this morning’s Neptune-moon square.

Take a deep breath & brace yourself. The news isn’t good but it will get better.

There’s no hiding from it – something’s gonna hurt today. It may be a new break up, an argument with a loved one, or the anniversary of a painful event. There is nothing warm about the 3 of Swords, it has no apparent sunny side or angle to draw strength from.

Or does it? Unless you are the one to break free from chains of an abusive or onesided relationship, then no. But if you are, then there is hope. But it will still hurt, initially, of course it will. So you must be strong and bear your heartache and know that this too shall pass. One day not so far away, you will remember this dark and lonely day and smile that you made it through.

Outside of the realm of love, this card can also indicate issues that cause you pain, discomfort and disruption. This may be financial, business or news from afar. I cried when David Bowie died.. So be aware that even if it’s not direct, you will still feel it. The best you can do is prepare and be good to yourself when it hits.
