Deer Moon Astrology, 6/18/2021

You’re focused on improving your work/life balance under today’s Libra moon. Keep an eye on boundaries to make sure that you focus your mind on work rather than love. Today could bring the momentum you need to get your workflow moving at a swift pace by ensuring you’re able to take on all the tasks at hand.

Improving relationships with colleagues and employers will be beneficial today because everyone is in the mood to make peace. Speak your mind with kindness and allow others to engage in the discussion. Creating healthy work relationships can set a positive tone in life. It gives us a reason to dedicate more energy to our jobs and love what we do, mostly because we like the people we work with and the environment.

Later in the day, emotions heighten and we could be overthinking matters. Your mind—and mouth—could be running a mile a minute. This means that you could share confidential information and ruin this morning’s positive vibe. Think before you express yourself to avoid unnecessary drama. And don’t accidentally spill the beans about a situation you are seeing from the sidelines and know little about. That way, you can avoid accidentally stirring the pot and stay out of the drama.

Today’s Libra Moon highlights relationship challenges — focusing us directly on our ability to express ourselves clearly. The Moon’s opposition to Chiron opens the door to a better understanding of how our past relationships — both family relationships and romantic relationships — impact how we are communicating effectively in this environment. This is an activating atmosphere, foreshadowing Mercury’s direct station next week. The shifts in our thinking and communicating can begin to show powerful results today. The communication challenges we face today are not the sorts of challenges we should think about walking away from. Rather, there are important lessons to be learned by staying with and trusting the process and keeping the conversation going.

“Bullshit baffles brains.” There’ll be plenty of it about today, the BS, that is. And there’s no-one better equipped to deal with it, or indeed spot it, than the Queen of Swords. She has a BS Detector so darn good that if she could replicate it, build a handheld version of it, she’d be a millionaire.

So here’s what you gotta do, switch your BS Detector on. Take a leaf out of the Queen of Swords’ book and use your skills of perception to see through the nonsense to get to the truth, if it’s there. A word of warning here, the Queen of Swords can be ruthless, she is most definitely precise and exacting, but what she’s not is a loose canon. When she comes across BS in all its forms, she deals with it in the most appropriate manner for the situation. And so must you.

If you come across someone trying baffle your brains with bullshit today, don’t fly off the handle, don’t overeact, note it and respond accordingly. That often includes applying the Rule of 10 or 24, that is, wait 10 minutes or 24hrs before you do. That way, you are responding and not reacting.
