Deer Moon Astrology 8/7/2021

If you’ve been contending with heavy emotions or feelings of self-doubt over the last couple of days, today’s cosmic climate brings a shift in the energy! The moon changes signs from emotional Cancer to fiery Leo this morning, reigniting our passions while reconnecting us with a healthy sense of self. Creativity reigns supreme under this lunar placement, so be sure to engage with an artistic outlet. It will help boost your ego in a balanced and positive manner.

A helpful connection to the nodes of fate can help you more clearly see your path moving forward, allowing your emotions to align with who you want to be in the future. Just remember that it’s important to learn from past mistakes, or you could end up stuck repeating scenarios you should have outgrown.

Self-doubt could rear its ugly head when Lady Luna faces off with restrictive Saturn this evening. Remember that there are solutions to every problem and alternative paths around any obstacle. Don’t let feelings of being stuck prevent you from trying to manifest your dreams.

Later, an unbalanced aspect between Mercury and Neptune could bring an element of confusion about exactly how to reach your goals, so it will be important that you remain pragmatic about your plans and leave room for error.

Luckily, a helpful overnight connection between the moon and Chiron allows us to lick our wounds and find the motivation to fight another day.

Today’s Leo Moon foreshadows a significant shift that will arrive with tomorrow’s Leo New Moon (6:49 AM PDT 16° Leo). We may find ourselves looking for ways to shift course or make quick adjustments ahead of some kind of upcoming presentation or official proposal. There is certainly more room for cooperation today than we may have been able to find yesterday. However, the dark of the Moon offers few clues of where the road will take us and so we may be more than a little vague in explaining our goals or intentions. There is some indication that we are holding on to rather unrealistic fantasies or aspirations. In this case, tomorrow’s shift may be a welcome aid in getting us on a more productive, realistic path.

The Bee Spirit’s message is that sweet rewards are on their way if you are willing to get your ego out of the way and immerse yourself in the connected energy of all things. Bee Spirit knows not to let a sense of being a separate self get in the way of a good thing. Spirit is always producing honey; miracles and magic are everywhere. When you connect with the Great Hive, you are vibrating and buzzing in exquisite harmony with all.

Bee Spirit asks that your focus be on connectivity. Your body, heart, soul, and psyche experience total interconnectedness and a true integration when you “self-forget”: when you remember that you are part of a greater unified consciousness.

Moving from separation into connection, from self-centered limitation to Spirit-centered infinite possibility and potential, you become busy as a bee, enjoying the gifts of Bee Spirit. Fully in alignment with your highest expression of yourself, your heart opens and creativity rushes through you seemingly without effort as you experience that nothing feels like work. Industriousness is driven by enthusiasm and inner motivation, and time seems to fly by quickly as the hive supports you in the making of honey.

Do you feel the presence of your helpers in the hidden realms adding their energy to your creations? Magical results are taking form and will be sweeter than you expect. Bee Spirit wants you to remember that your part in the divine partnership with the Conscious Universe is being rewarded even if you can’t see that yet, and asks that you share your good fortune as there is plenty of honey for all. Be a part of the larger whole, the force that brings forth all that is sweet and delightful.
