Deer Moon Astrology 7/31/2021

Getting out of bed could feel like a challenge today due to a series of aspects causing a funk in the cosmos. This morning, the moon forms a harsh square to Mercury, which could cause insomnia and mental chatter.

Taurus energy loves nothing more than to spend time in a comfy bed, and a rough aspect between the sun and moon could tempt you to stay under the covers, but try not to abuse the snooze button.

There are more energetic hiccups later in the morning, when Lady Luna forms yet another harsh aspect, this time with Saturn. You could feel as though you’re stuck or emotionally shut down, which could leave you feeling isolated.

Venus sends some love your way this afternoon, asking you to be patient and loving with both yourself and the people around you. There could be a temptation to spend right now, but be mindful that you don’t blow your budget or you could regret it later.

A connection between the moon and wildcard Uranus brings unexpected blessings your way tonight. The day may have been filled with ups and downs, but as you tuck yourself into bed, a sense of gratitude will wash over you.

We have been moving through an extremely confusing but often highly inspiring period that began around mid-May, just before the first of three Mercury-Neptune squares. We have finally reached a place now where the confusion is dissipating and intellect and inspiration are becoming grounded with logical perspectives and practical approaches. Nonetheless, today’s energy is still somewhat mystical or intuitive, helping us to recognize our ability to clue in to new and important information and connect the dots very effectively. As well, our ability to embrace collaborative and cooperative opportunities is enhanced. As we begin to blend inspiration with practical approaches, we will better understand how to incorporate our individual sense of direction into a larger purpose.

This is a card of two stories. In the Thoth Tarot, it talks of failure. In the Rider, it has been interpreted as bearing fruit through patience – being in something for the long haul and allowing things to unfold or manifest in their own time.

That is all well and good when the clock is not ticking. What do you do if it is? How much time can you allow something to develop or produce before you call time on it? You hear of tales of miners giving up & selling on only to hear the mine scores big & they’d only been inches away from success…. The question is, how could they have possibly known they were so close?

The question for you is, how do you decide if something is worth the wait or if you should also call time on the endeavour? There is no easy answer. The Rider says wait, the Thoth says don’t and the Lo Scarabeo tries to find the middle ground. And so should you, and while you do so, ask yourself some very honest questions about whether this thing or situation is worth the wait. It still may fail and if it does, at least you had your eyes wide open for the process and you can learn where things went wrong.
