Deer Moon Astrology, 7/8/2021

Today’s energy could be extremely testy, but the Cancer sun and Jupiter retrograde in Pisces share a minor aspect that can yield luck, abundance, and success.

Venus in Leo squares off with Uranus in Taurus this afternoon, which can bring uncertainty and commotion in love and money matters. If we sit back and embrace the vibe, it could bring a very exciting and fun energy to us.

Mercury in Gemini shares a minor frustration with Pluto in Capricorn. This energy can create irritability and an unwillingness to communicate effectively. It can make you want to run away from difficult situations and focus on yourself rather than confront anyone.

The Cancer sun and Mars in Leo also share a minor connection. Mars gives the ego confidence to go after what we love and assert ourselves. The only caution is that your confidence could take a minor hit because of how others relate or respond to you.

The flip side of this is that you might want to rush situations and go for the gold immediately. It’s important to slow down and not move too quickly. In your rush you could forget important factors like the fine print in a contract, and this could backfire or bring a reversal of fortune down the road.

The Moon arrives in Cancer this morning at 6:50 AM, ahead of tomorrow’s Cancer New Moon (6:16 PM PDT 18° Cancer). The Moon’s trine to Jupiter is both optimistic and stabilizing. We continue to look for ways to unwind the struggle between freedom and security (safety) and look for reassurance from others. However, today’s Venus-Uranus square has us skeptical of any costs or sacrifices associated with getting such reassurance. Mercury has emerged from the shadow of the last retrograde period and today makes a quincunx with Pluto — producing demands that we honor our own inner creativity by exhibiting self-discipline and integrity. This is the true price of freedom. Honest self-expression opens the door for us to honor both ourselves and those around us, providing both the security and freedom that we are trying to sort out and understand.

Maker Nine from the Tarot of the Sidhe.

The 9 of Pentacles in other decks, is about seeing the fruits of your labors. Seeing the flowers blossom in your garden, seeing a return on your earlier investment, a kindly word from your teenager, chocolates from a grateful friend. Whatever you planted has taken root and is rewarding you with not just material things but with joy and happiness.

You have all this because you earned it, one way or another. You may not do physical work, but you worked for someone else’s need. You may not have a lot of money to spare at the shops, but if you have some, it’s more than most.

There’s a win-win situation to this card that isn’t first evident. It focuses on what you put in at the beginning, pretty rewarding in itself to see a job well done, but then you get your prize which makes it all the more worthwhile. This is a day for counting your blessings and enjoying them too.
