Deer Moon Astrology, 6/17/2021

The Gemini sun and Virgo moon square off tonight to end eclipse season. Now that we’ve survived the intense aspects of spring, we can reflect on what we’ve learned and how we’ve grown.

But truth be told, we aren’t out of the woods yet. Today could bring an old flame your way. With Mercury retrograde in full swing, old ghosts from the past could reappear out of the blue and want to reconnect. Look out for a love triangle or jealousy coming to an emotional peak brought on by Pluto’s connection to the Virgo moon. While you might be tempted to keep your ex in your life, you could have second thoughts today.

Neptune’s cosmic presence with the lunar energy can also bring out some serious emotions and unresolved issues, so someone could overstep in a conversation (including you). Be clear about your boundaries, and don’t be afraid to make a clean break by midnight if you’re not feeling the vibe. It might be time to let them go again. Don’t be afraid to end the relationship. It didn’t work the first time, so the odds of a reconciliation are slim. You can forge a friendship in place of romance if you want, but if you prefer to move on, it can create space for someone better. When one door closes, another door opens.

The Moon makes the 1st quarter square to the Sun tonight. Idealism injects a significant amount of confusion along with some potential for unrealistic expectations. Nonetheless, there are significant capabilities and hidden strengths that can help us rise to today’s challenges. This is a day to face the fear and move forward anyway. As the light builds in the current lunar cycle, we can begin to see more clearly how the words we speak have, not only power, but also consequences. Integrity, planning, and honesty offer significant rewards. Attempts to escape accountability for the words we use are unlikely to find any safe haven. The Moon goes void-of-course at 8:54 PM PDT this evening.

The Waxing Crescent Moon starts as the Moon becomes visible again after the New Moon conjunction, when the Sun and Earth are on opposite sides of the Moon, making it impossible to see the Moon from Earth. During this phase, the lit-up part of the Moon increases from 0.1% to 49.9%.

As you look around you, can you sense the magic that pulses through the world? Have you witnessed how every thought can become a thing? How every intention can call the universe into action as the sacred laws shape what you experience? The universe works in perfect order.

When you align your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs with Spirit, you will want to crow with delight, feeling the excitement and wonder of being in harmony with something much larger than yourself.

Crow Spirit says you are right on target now to see your dreams magically come into being in the visible world. The laws of Abundance, Compensation, Frequency, and Praise are operating in your favor now. Remember to be grateful and praise what is yours, even if it is still coalescing into form, still residing in the invisible realms of co-creation.

No matter what area of your life you’re concerned with now, what you hope for is on its way—for Spirit is your co-creation partner.
