Deer Moon Astrology 6/23/2021

Today is an extremely stressful day, astrologically speaking. First, the Cancer sun connects with Jupiter retrograde in Pisces, heightening egos. This could make us feel like we’re 100 percent right even if we aren’t. Arguments can ensue as a result.

The truth of the matter is that there is no right or wrong, only different perspectives. The more open you are to seeing that everyone has their own point of view, the easier it will be to accept others and be welcomed with open arms.

Venus in Cancer shares a minor connection with Jupiter, Uranus in Taurus, and the north node of destiny in Gemini. This can create an over-the-top, romanticized version of what we think we deserve from relationships and what we believe we require financially for all of our efforts at work.

Our expectations are heightened, which means that disappointment will inevitably result. If you choose to quibble about what you receive, this could result in an argument that lasts all day and through tomorrow’s full moon. It’s important to stand one’s ground, but it’s also important to compromise. The imbalance is exacerbated by the opposition between Venus and Pluto in Capricorn, resulting in an emotional standoff and power struggle leading into tomorrow’s frenetic celestial vibe.

The Moon’s square to Neptune, combined with a Venus-Pluto opposition, produces some chaos, confusion and relationship challenges today. We are beginning to unwind a variety of overly optimistic, idealistic expectations and the approaching Capricorn Full Moon increases an imperative to take charge in this increasingly protective environment. There is a strong need for perseverance, self-discipline, and honest communication. Personal authority may feel very much under assault. We need to stay with the process and look for ways to recognize and honor our individual insight and understanding while allowing others to have their own perspective without feeling overly threatened. The Moon goes void-of-course this evening at 7:08 PM PDT.

No matter how much you may have lost, or how you have been disappointed, you are called by Snake Spirit to shed the past and practice radical self-acceptance now.

Only by forgiving yourself can you move on, regardless of whether anyone else is ready for healing. When your tender new skin first becomes exposed, you may feel uncomfortable; love yourself and remain vulnerable anyway.

You have been weak, but now you are becoming strong and developing wisdom, and you will do better in the future.

Snake Spirit reminds you that hearts can be so easily wounded; apologies and amends go a long way. Self-forgiveness for your role in what happened can help you heal.

Remember, it is the one who has been wounded who often has the greatest power to help others heal.
