Deer Moon Astrology, 5/24/2021

The Scorpio moon brings a lot of intense energy to love and our emotional life. Today, you could be tested by the universe to make a karmic decision that has a major impact on your life.

The Scorpio moon creates a t-square with Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus, and you will be given the chance to choose between your higher and lower energy vibrations to make honorable choices. Whether or not you choose the “right” path could affect your future.

Uranus, the great awakener, in earthy Taurus opposes the Scorpio moon, and Saturn squares these energies. You could make a major discovery today that shifts your passion, mind, and heart. There could be revelations expressed and secrets revealed.

The only caution is that your emotions may cause you to act impulsively, which would steer you in another direction. These planets are strengthening each other in the sky. Venus and Mars are forcing us to move toward our desires, while Mars and Saturn are forcing us to asset our individuality by letting go of the past. Mercury is in its pre-retrograde shadow, creating internal confusion and uncertainty. You could be distracted by information that proves untrue. Take any scandalous or shocking news with a grain of salt today.

Today’s slowdown may feel more like a hard stop to some of us, resulting in some deeply uncomfortable emotional uncertainty. On the other hand, some will feel relief that the pace has slowed enough to gather our wits. Either way, the forming Grand Water Trine, stirs our emotions and offers emotional release. This atmosphere may feel very inspiring but we should not expect anything like quick progress — we need to let this atmosphere soak in in some way or another. Beneath this slowdown are some very important reassessments of past decisions and agreements. We are beginning to recognize that superficial understanding is wholly inadequate for the deep waters that we are just beginning to wade into.

*The Waxing Gibbous is an intermediate phase of the Moon that starts right after the First Quarter when the illumination is 50%. The name Gibbous comes from the Moon’s shape, which is less than a Full Moon but more extensive than the Third Quarter’s semicircle shape. Waxing means that the Moon is getting bigger.
