Deer Moon Astrology 7/22/2021


We could feel a huge shift this morning, at 10:26 AM EDT, when the sun changes signs from sensitive Cancer to proud and fiery Leo. If you have a tendency to put others first, now is the time to focus just a bit more on yourself.

Unfortunately, this could be easier said than done when the moon makes a challenging aspect to Chiron this afternoon. There could be a lot of egos flying around right now, and though you might find it difficult to set boundaries with people who rub you the wrong way, it’s important for your mental health to do so.

Venus and Jupiter face off in the cosmos throughout the day, which could tempt you into being overly generous with others. Remember that it’s okay to say no to someone, and it’s totally acceptable to bestow the love and energy you freely give to others back on yourself.

By midafternoon, a helpful connection between the moon and Uranus could bring pleasant surprises your way, especially in your professional life. Your status could get a little upgrade as well, so don’t be afraid to show off what an amazing masterpiece you are!

As the day comes to a close, you could feel worn out from all of the day’s energy, which could cause you and others to shut down. Don’t take it personally if someone doesn’t answer your messages tonight. Like you, they probably just need some quiet time to decompress. 

The Sun arrives in Leo today. The challenge is to stay away from overly idealized approaches or painting with broad brush strokes that don’t clearly identify the details of the work that needs to be done. Venus is newly arrived in Virgo, helping us to recognize the need for discrimination and a more clearly defined plan. Today’s Capricorn Moon demands results but helps us to persevere, get down to brass tacks, and maintain steady effort. The intense imperatives will continue to push us to make progress but, following tomorrow’s Aquarius Full Moon (7:36 PM PDT 1° Aquarius/Leo), we will begin to find a great deal more detachment which will make our progress feel much smoother and more satisfying.

It takes courage to face challenges and right now, Panther Spirit is here to say that you are braver than you think. Now is the time to take a risk and step into a different aspect of your being.

Speak as you have never spoken before, act as you have always dreamed you might have the courage to act, love fearlessly and fully, and expect to feel the adrenaline rush as you are initiated into a new, braver, bolder self.

Panther Spirit says the time for dreaming about what you want to do is giving way to that first courageous act toward reclaiming your Panther Spirit and power. Your new identity may feel strange at first, but you have what it takes and your soul wants this. Be bold!
