Deer Moon Astrology, 7/2/2021

The Aries moon makes a soft yet helpful connection to Mercury this morning, helping us wake up early and get into gear quickly. If you’ve been feeling low energy lately, this can be a great time to reconnect with a passion project and a lust for life.

Just try not to rush too quickly through the day, and be careful about how much multitasking you do. A collection of tense aspects between Mars, Saturn, and Uranus could mean small mistakes have big consequences. Try not to butt heads with authority figures right now either, because it could leave you feeling powerless or restricted. If any mishaps do occur throughout the day, try to face them head-on rather than waiting until later to handle them.

This evening, the moon forms a harsh square to Pluto, which intensifies the cosmic climate we’ve been contending with all day. Try not to put too much pressure on yourself or others right now, and give yourself permission to take some alone time if you need it.

If you do feel weighed down by emotions or responsibilities, a healthy outlet like walking or stretching can help ground you while releasing the physical symptoms of stress. Today could be rough, so it’s important that you are patient, gentle, and loving with yourself and your loved ones. 

A new sense of momentum may encourage a bit too much pride or recklessness today. Defensiveness and arrogance will surface if we feel too much pressure. Essentially, we are bucking at any restrictions today in ways that may not seem to be very productive. In truth, we need guidelines more than ever today but seem to be tempted to look for ways to take control and run the show without considering the needs of others. Juno is conjunct the South Node in Sagittarius today, possibly increasing the defensiveness but also forcing us to consider others in our calculations. The Moon goes void-of-course at 9:21 PM PDT this evening.

At one extreme, you will be dealing with legal matters, contracts & obligations. If you are these will include legal personnel – lawyers, maybe even judges, most definitely decision makes.

At the other you are being called to adjudicate at the personal level – be or create fairness where there is some missing. You may be experiencing the effect underhanded behaviour, if so, you are being called to take the upper hand through fair means. If you are being unfair, then you have to correct your behaviour whether you like it or not. A zero sum game does not create a balanced situation nor does it promote cohesion or moving forward positively.

You could end up doing a 5 of Swords, and that’s not cool. No matter how you think they may deserve it. Can you settle this a better way? You are being asked to think about how. The thinking relates in a way to the High Priestess, inner wisdom and not being rash – finding a solution quietly, privately and in a way that creates an equal sum game.
