Deer Moon Astrology 6/5/2021

Today is going to be intense for everyone. There is no way around this energy, which is why it would be best to keep to yourself and get out of any drama that begins.

Action planet Mars in emotional Cancer opposes transformative Pluto in pragmatic Capricorn and right away we can tell that there will be friction. We’re dealing with the Cancer-Capricorn axis, which means that the energy is pushing us to have an immediate response. On a good day, these two planets can bring about necessary growth. However, because it occurs during eclipse season, it indicates that there could be some major drama.

Both planets want to dominate, leaving you shrugging your shoulders and wondering who’s the boss in your life. There could be arguments at work and fights over authority. Or there could be drama with loved ones because the need for control is strong. The high vibration of these planets is forcing you to take a look at your live and take the necessary steps toward growth, which you might not want to do because it seems scary. The future may be uncertain, but it’s better to gamble on transforming your life than be manipulated by others emotionally and psychologically. When you look at this from a clearer perspective, the answer to what you should and need to do becomes easy.

Today’s intensity may seem to come out of nowhere. The Moon’s square to the Mars-Pluto opposition suddenly exposes the flashing red concern over individual expression. The influence of the second of three Mercury-Neptune squares creates an atmosphere that seeks to merge or dissolve individual insights and ideas into some kind of grand vision. However, as individuals we may feel the need to push back, distinguishing ourselves from others, and stand apart. Grand visions are challenged when we try to take an individual stand. In this atmosphere, individual blind spots are exposed and we begin to recognize where there are missing pieces. This is likely to be an extremely emotional process but our ability to articulate those emotions is hampered by the overall lack of clarity.

During the Waning Crescent Moon phase, the lit-up part of the Moon decreases from 49.9% to 0.1%. The phase lasts from the Third Quarter Moon‘s semicircle until it disappears from view at New MoonWaning means that it’s shrinking and getting smaller, while crescent refers to the curved sickle shape. The Moon’s surface reflects the Sun’s rays, and half of it is always illuminated by sunlight. Just how much of that light we can see from Earth varies every day, and we refer to this as a Moon phase.

Dolphin Spirit, like her earthly manifestation, is a reminder of duality. As the dolphin is both mammal and sea creature, so too is Dolphin Spirit both “this” and “that.” Two truths co-exist: the story you tell and another as well. The duality of life is present when we are suffering, for there is a blessing, too, in the helpers that appear.

Within clouds are silver linings; when we later reflect on what happened, we can see that a situation was both this and that and a choice led to both joy and sorrow. No relationship is either all good or all bad, and people have qualities of both light and shadow.

Focus on the positive, for light exists alongside the darkness. Dolphin Spirit calls for you to come up from below and enjoy a weightless moment in the sun as you dive in and out of this and then that, accepting and even enjoying the duality of life. Why not join Dolphin Spirit in acknowledging and affirming the blessings present in this moment? In all areas of your life, there are aspects of both “this” and “that.” Today you can celebrate this fact and recognize the complexity and the beauty of the fabric of the universe.

You are at a place right now where your past self is still present as you move toward the new self you are becoming. Aspects of both selves are present, so even if you want to say good-bye to what was, you are required to find solace in this “between time.”

Today is not a day to choose one over another either, but rather to accept things as they are without judgment or resistance. Even in matters of the heart, duality is present. Your next action will be obvious when you drop your bias and see things as a whole.
