Deer Moon Astrology 7/16/2021

The Libra moon forms a supportive aspect to Saturn early this morning, helping us set structures around our professional and romantic goals.

However, a harsh aspect to healing asteroid Chiron a short time later threatens to challenge our energy level. The balance you keep between your responsibilities and self-care is an important theme today, so you need to make sure you’re checking in with yourself often to avoid tiring yourself out.

This gains further traction when an unbalanced aspect to unpredictable Uranus throws a wrench in our plans, leaving us scrambling to hold things together.

Venus forms an off-putting aspect to hazy Neptune, and confusion could manifest in romantic partnerships as well. Keep your guard up against overly charismatic people right now, because there is a chance you could be taken for a ride if you fall too hard for charm over substance.

Though the day may feel like it’s filled with uncertainty, fluctuations in energy, and confusion, things clear up this evening when the moon shares a supportive connection to Mars. You’ll likely feel motivated to work on a passion project or even spend a little one-on-one time under the sheets, but try not to stay up too late.

A connection between the moon and Neptune could bring strange dreams your way tonight, but try not to read too much into them. Any messages that come through will likely be too convoluted to unpack. 

We gain further awareness of the importance of the activity of those around us today. We have increased capacity to understand a broad variety of perspectives and perhaps even the organizational ability to sort through differences and find common ground. There is also an impressive capacity to convey unpopular ideas with some finesse and flair. The Moon begins to form a highly activating Cardinal T-Square with the Sun and Pluto, pushing us forward with an increasing sense of destiny. However, there may also be some crisis associated with the feeling that we are meeting with unfair obstacles put in place by some kind of powerful authority. The active realignment of allies and affiliates is born of new awareness that we must find broader understanding in order to build new alliances. With such alliances in place, we can move past the obstacles that we may find in our way today.

Essential meanings: The Law of Giving and Receiving; currency; trade-offs; weighing costs and determining value.

The Oracle’s Message: You’re entering into a productive and enriching time when all manner of opportunities are being offered to you. You have everything you need to seize them. Yet in order to honor them, you must put in the time, exchange your experience and skills, and commit heart and soul to what you’re choosing to pursue. You can do it! You have what it takes to be successful if you align with the Law of Giving and Receiving. You must engage in a dance of give and take, push and pull, doing and being. If you let fear guide your choices, you could deplete yourself or create an imbalance. This is not a time of just do, do, do. Use your currency wisely and be mindful of the value others bring to your life.

Relationship message: Love is an exchange of life-force energy between two living beings. It grows exponentially when it’s reciprocated. You must give and receive in order for love to flourish and abundance to flow between you, nourishing you. Spirit wants you to start accepting all the blessings waiting for you, as well as offer the same gift in return. Open your heart and allow it to be filled! Let love in and let it flow out of you, too. Love is truly yours today.

Prosperity message: All your hard work and efforts—your commitment to learning, creating, and spending your time wisely—pay off in ways you may not have been anticipating. The gifts of yourself—your time, your ideas, and the energy of your intentions—are being reciprocated by the universe, which is sending you signs and signals, aligning synchronistic meetings and opportunities to bring you success and more. Everything is an exchange. Keep doing what you’re doing. Goodwill comes back tenfold.
