Deer Moon Astrology, 7/18/2021

Messages from beyond the veil could creep into your psyche as the Scorpio moon forms a supportive aspect to communicative Mercury this morning. These energies collide while many of us are still in the dream world, but if you happen to be awake, this would be a good time to have a chat with the other side.

If you encounter strange dreams while traversing the astral realms, be sure to write them down as soon as you wake up, because a harsh aspect between the moon and Saturn could make it difficult to recall these dreams later.

Getting out of bed could be a challenge once the sun has fully risen, because an unbalanced aspect between Lady Luna and Chiron could leave us feeling depleted energetically and perhaps emotionally.

The vibe might get a little wonky when the moon forms a harsh opposition to wildcard Uranus this afternoon. Drama, unexpected expenses, and injuries have the potential to manifest under this cosmic climate, so tread lightly if you can.

You might also notice that people are overstepping their boundaries with you today when communicative Mercury forms an off-kilter connection to Saturn. If someone starts to offer unsolicited advice, try to find a polite way to shut them down before you act aggressively defensive.

As the night comes to a close, be sure to take a cleansing shower to help wash away today’s messy energy.

We continue to find ourselves needing to operate outside of our comfort zone today and possibly feeling quite inadequate to the tasks we face. Nonetheless, the pressure is not unmanageable if we can stay focused on the opportunities for creative solutions and avoid getting bogged down in ego-based personality clashes and all of the ins-and-outs about just who is right about what. The pressure to proceed with haste may seem quite overwhelming but there is just no blunt force tool available to smash through the challenges here. There is a distinct need to make adjustments deliberately. We’re turning into something like a blind corner, and won’t be able to see far enough ahead to adapt all at once.

When cynicism says no, Starfish Spirit says yes a thousand times over. Are you willing to entertain new possibilities? Are you limiting your goals in order to be realistic, and cutting yourself off from the power of dreaming big?

Let go of your rigid beliefs about what is possible for you, and let Starfish Spirit inspire you to open your heart and your eyes to what Spirit has available to you.

Now is a time to stretch beyond the familiar and unfurl yourself, for you are meant for more than you are imagining for yourself. Spirit wants the best for you and will support you in achieving whatever intention you hold dear.
