Deer Moon Astrology, 8/6/2021

A helpful aspect between the Cancer moon and Neptune brings a dreamy and healing vibe to the table this morning, allowing you to fantasize about your path moving forward. Just remember not to get caught up in the details of how it might change you.

Internal struggles could arise later in the afternoon as Lady Luna forms a tough opposition to intense Pluto. You might have a hard time completing all the work you need to do in order to actualize your goals, but try not to be overwhelmed by the big picture. Remember to take things step by step.

Your self-care and personal responsibilities might be at odds right now as well, so it’s important that you be extra kind and patient with yourself and those around you. Stepping into your personal power might be challenging at the moment, but know that it’s totally okay to take some time alone at home to recharge before you make any big moves.

Later, your identity could be thrown for a loop when the sun forms a harsh square to unpredictable Uranus. Things you thought you knew about yourself may not align with the person you are in this moment, but remember that it’s totally okay and normal to question your personal disposition.

As the day comes to a close, the moon makes one final aspect to Jupiter, allowing us to find inspiration and hope. Just remember to keep one foot on the ground.

There are challenges today, related to effective collaboration and cooperation. Power struggles and conflicting agendas could create significant disruptions. We may seem to have a tendency to feel protective of the underdog and be especially suspicious of those who represent power and authority. Our perception of the overall power ‘hierarchy’ may actually be somewhat suspect and we will do well to look for some way to stay ‘detached’ in the midst of these conflicts. The Moon goes void-of-course this afternoon at 3:11 PM PDT, which may have us a bit unsettled or frustrated this evening.

Learning to set healthy boundaries is the gift of Armadillo Spirit. You are entering a phase where in order for you to be in alignment with your intentions and co-create your best life, you may have to be discerning and say no to many things that may have been okay for you in the past.

This also means that you need to learn where you end and where others begin, what is yours to own and what is not. Know your limits and understand that it’s an empowering choice to say no to what doesn’t feel right.

Armadillo Spirit is here to tell you it’s time to be honest with yourself about what you really want. Be clear on what you are agreeing to, declare what your needs are, and say no as a full sentence; these are acts of respect and kindness to others as well as to yourself. Trust your body’s signals, and you will know what to do.

Armadillo Spirit guides you in making good decisions that are grounded in a strong sense of what belongs to you and what does not.
