Deer Moon Astrology 8/10/2021

The universe has surprises in store for us all this morning as the Virgo moon shares a positive aspect to wildcard Uranus. Look for small blessings, magical moments, and unexpected opportunities for financial gain right now, though there’s no telling how big or small these payouts will be. In honor of these vibes, you might want to do something nice for someone you care about to help propel the thrill of this cosmic climate.

While things could be delightfully unpredictable early on, you’ll want to stay grounded by focusing on small tasks and duties throughout the remainder of the day. Communicative Mercury and expansive Jupiter face off in the sky tonight, which could cause you to feel overwhelmed or as though too many people are vying for your attention. The prospect of change and the work that goes with it could also feel like a daunting challenge to take on, which is exactly why breaking things into smaller, more digestible steps should be a priority.

It’s also important to remember that it’s okay to step back from your responsibilities for a bit, especially if you’re feeling highly stressed or tightly wound.

Overnight, the moon forms an opposition to hazy Neptune, which could leave you feeling disconnected or worn down from the day’s hectic energy. Use this time to decompress, and try not to have unreasonable expectations for yourself or those around you.

Mercury’s opposition to Jupiter today serves to broaden our perspective. We have just enough cautious sensitivity to keep us from pushing too hard. There is a smooth flow of ideas and enough detachment to keep us from becoming too focused on just one idea. In essence, this atmosphere allows us to incorporate practicality into our approach without creating a sense of restriction. As we find things falling into place, next steps become clear. This is not to say that we won’t find new unrealistic or impractical elements to try to add to the picture. However, today’s guidelines and productive flow serve to keep us on a productive track.

Others may not be as far along as you are on your journey. When Stag Spirit appears in the protection position, you are called to be compassionate and patient as you find yourself leading the way.

When others struggle to follow you, they may be unsure that you can be trusted, challenging you to be kind and strong, challenging your value and questioning your worth. Know that Spirit has put you in this place at this time for a purpose and will not abandon you when you need help with your new responsibilities.

Or perhaps you are actually uncomfortable leading, maybe temporarily trapped by your small self and are therefore promoting yourself too strongly, afraid that others might see weakness or imperfection in you.

Let go of your fears, and let Stag Spirit remind you that you have what it takes to lead wisely and ethically if you practice self-honesty and listen to others who wish to support you.
