Deer Moon Astrology, 7/26/2021

Try not to take it personally if people around you seem a bit cranky today. An opposition between the moon and Venus probably caused them to wake up on the wrong side of the bed. This cosmic climate could also cause you to feel more sensitive than normal, so try to maintain a grounded and logical disposition as you move through the morning.

Since the moon is traveling through Pisces, we all feel a little more empathic right now, which could be draining if you’re not careful about who you surround yourself with.

Be mindful to have supportive and positive influences around right now, especially this afternoon, when the moon squares the nodes of fate. This cosmic climate could bring up trauma from the past, leaving you uncertain about how to move forward. Try to avoid self-deprecating thoughts and keep in mind that past bad experiences have only made you a stronger person today.

This energy breaks up as evening sets in, and a helpful aspect to the moon and Uranus provides you with an unexpected pick-me-up. The universe wants to shower you with surprises, so keep your eyes open for synchronicities and the beauty that is all around you. 

There is more capacity for confident self-direction today, especially if we are able to set aside any need to convince others. There is still enough sensitivity in this atmosphere to maintain awareness of where others are coming from — in other words, it is easier to incorporate any of the good ideas but quietly set aside anything that doesn’t fit productively into our plans. In this atmosphere, complications may actually open new doors rather than slow us down. There are indeed gems of insight to be found in surprising places today if we let ourselves stay open to finding them.

Are you feeling prickly and defensive lately, and assuming you will be hurt before you have seen any sign that such a reaction is called for?

Perhaps an old sense of guilt and shame is causing you to be cynical and wary when you are meant to be open and curious. Self-protection is a good thing, but you may be protecting yourself from something that will not actually harm you but instead will bring you abundance, happiness, and love.

Remember your innocence, and you will see what you have been overlooking. Porcupine quills are filled with air, allowing a porcupine to float in water. Now is a time to let your innocent nature keep you buoyant.
