Deer Moon Astrology, 8/12/2021

A grand trine forms in the cosmos early this morning as the Libra moon, Saturn, and north node all share positive energy with one another. The vibes here can help us find peace in the work that needs to be done on our path moving forward, bringing an element of clarity and understanding when it comes to personal or professional goals.

Since some people will be asleep when these aspects occur, you should take a moment to think about your dreams when you wake up. It’s possible the universe sent you a few guiding messages while you were wandering through the dream realms.

Later, the moon faces off with healing asteroid Chiron. It’s important that you put your needs first during this time and try not to be a “people pleaser,” especially if it impinges on your ability to take care of yourself.

On the other end of this aspect, you’ll want to make sure you’re not being insensitive or dismissive of how others are feeling. If you find yourself in a conflict during the first part of the day, remove yourself from the situation until this evening when the vibe lightens up a bit.

Tonight, take some time to lean into love and self-care. Check in with your mind, body, and soul and look for ways to bring any unbalanced elements of your energy back to where they should be.

We are able to make further adjustments to our perspective and our approach today and the result is almost evolutionary in terms of the capability to move forward productively. Today’s challenge may simply be having enough time to make use of all of today’s opportunities. We find considerable imagination and resourcefulness, along with a healthy dose of diplomacy that encourages broad cooperation. There is an element of risk-taking in this atmosphere that may create some pitfalls if we aren’t able to maintain personal responsibility. However, there seems to be enough detachment available to keep us from going too far by gambling on foolish prospects.

Cow Spirit asks you to pay attention to how you nourish your mind, body, and spirit because right now, you are wobbling around like a newborn calf on its unsteady legs. Perhaps you’ve been spending too much time distracting yourself on the Internet, or obsessing over a relationship, or choosing to eat food that is not healthy.

Whatever it is, you’re being nudged to assess how you are looking after your needs. Remember, the universe has a way of reflecting back to you events and conditions that match how you treat yourself. Cow Spirit reminds you that the universe wants to give you the very best but needs you to do your part to participate and nourish your well-being. Heed her message, and everything will shift in your favor!
