Deer Moon Astrology, 6/2/2021

Romance planet Venus moves into tender Cancer today after a stint in intellectual and mindful Gemini. We’re switching gears from feeling with the mind to loving with the heart.

When Venus is in Cancer, we’re deep in the water element when expressing our need for security in matters of the heart. If we aren’t feeling comfortable, or if we’re constantly on guard, we’ll argue and push back against the people we care about. There is an innate need here to feel loved all the time in order to break through the tough protective exterior (like a crab’s shell) that we all wear to guard against painful experiences. If we feel hurt, we’ll react to those who have upset us by pinching back even harder, holding on to the issues until we’re ready to drop it and move on.

Venus in Cancer helps you to rely on your instincts when it comes to love and money, which means that you’ll have to trust your gut feelings when making decisions regarding relationships and financial investments. There is also a sense of unconditional love here, which can guarantee relationship security for the long term if you’re ready.

Venus arrives in Cancer today, making a lovely trine to Jupiter over the next couple of days. The Pisces Moon enhances the expansive sense of inspiration and creativity, giving us the sense that we have begun to understand the new atmosphere. The sense of destiny may be profound and we are encouraged to share information and inspiration with others. Nonetheless, the Moon’s square to the retrograding Mercury will leave the clarity of the details out of reach. Despite today’s pleasant environment, we should not forget that, with Saturn retrograding back towards a second square to Uranus, there are still plenty of challenges to face before today’s inspiration will actually show tangible expression.

Guard your stuff & your ideas. Give your best effort.

Be on your guard against the less than ethical, the proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing is on the prowl today and what you have or have created is within their sights. Some of you may be concerned about physical objects, and while it’s always a good idea to protect your possessions as best you can, you should also be careful wtih your private and sensitive information.

The 7 of Swords is an air card and as such refers to the mind and the mental realm. We could call this card the Thief of Ideas, so be careful who you trust with your thoughts, plans and ideas. If they’re out there already, then consider this an act of flattery. Yes, I know. But consider this – the 7 of Swords is a card also concerned with a poor effort. He’s leaving those two swords behind not because he’s in a kind mood, he’s robbing from you.

He’s leaving them behind because he’s a lazy thief and hasn’t got what it takes to do better with your work than you. The Lord of Unstable Effort may have his sights on you today, but he will leave empty handed, with his legs between his tails.
