Deer Moon Astrology, 6/9/2021

Today is a day to stick to the routine, make plans, and try not to give in to anyone’s demands. You have set out on this path for a specific purpose. The Gemini moon, connecting with Saturn retrograde in Aquarius, urges us to turn our goals into reality. Making lists and checking them twice helps to counteract the scatterbrained, airy vibe.

Someone’s lesson for you might just be about following your own path. There is a need to go your own way as well as try to bring your friends along with you. For now, this isn’t a group effort. Instead, it’s the perfect day to plan your future. Paying careful attention to your emotional habits can help propel you to the next level. Making sure you keep yourself on track is what helps you restore your personal energy and keeps you from resenting those who tried to exert their power over you in the past.

There is also a strong spiritual aspect here that makes you a more solid presence in the game. This is a short-term transit, and right now you can shift your evolutionary path from a more constructive stance if you think about how to make the necessary changes to elevate your life in a mature way.

Today’s smooth flowing atmosphere may help us to develop some sense of a deepening connection today but there is also a distinct lack of continuity that makes maintaining connections and establishing clear communication difficult. This dark of the Moon environment is extremely difficult to stabilize and pin down with any sense of satisfaction. The challenge of communicating our individual perspective is intense but may be difficult to recognize. The lack of discrimination may have us making random connections without clear purpose or true meaning. Some may feel lost and completely disconnected without fully understanding what to do to clarify the picture.

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.

Pushing too hard or rushing to leave others in the dust is not the way of Turtle Spirit, even if it seems at times it is the way of the world. Turtle Spirit wants you to remember that you are a human being not a human doing.

In the protection position, Turtle Spirit is giving you the message that the best thing to do right now is let go of the drive to compete or control and do more; instead, simply be.

As an old Norse saying goes, “We do without doing and everything gets done.” Spirit conspires on your behalf, so slow to a crawl or even stop, releasing any fear that life is a race that you might be losing.

Trust that peace, prosperity, love, and purpose are all yours to enjoy right now. Do not “do.” Simply be.
