Deer Moon Astrology 8/14/2021

The Scorpio moon forms a helpful connection to communicative Mercury during the witching hour this morning, temporarily thinning the veil. If you’re awake, use this as an opportunity to meditate and search for guidance from the other side or family members who have crossed over.

Later, Lady Luna forms a helpful aspect to Mars, though Saturn and the moon won’t be on the best of terms. Avoid hitting the snooze button right now, because you might end up sleeping in much longer than you thought you would.

This effect could be magnified later by an unbalanced aspect between the sun and Neptune, which could leave you feeling hazy or disconnected, especially if you don’t make an effort to shake off your slumber.

Things might get a little intense and unpredictable this evening as the moon faces off with wildcard Uranus. Issues or trauma from the past that you thought you’d dealt with could resurface now, but try not to let it throw you off guard.

It’s important that you avoid spying on exes or crushes who don’t show a genuine interest, because it would be easy to spiral and obsess right now, which wouldn’t be healthy. Scorpio moons love to bring our attention to internal struggle, but if you choose to accept and release the past for what it is, you can benefit and evolve from this cosmic challenge.

Yesterday’s stumbles create a particularly unsteady atmosphere today. We may be prone to making a hard turn in an attempt to correct our course. However, it isn’t likely that we need to make anything other than rather simple adjustments in order to bolster our confidence. This is a steady as she goes environment even if we begin to believe that we’ve hit a wall and can’t move forward. The long arc fixed sign cross created by the Moon’s transit through Scorpio is mainly a challenge to our egos and our confidence levels. We need to align closely with a philosophical ideal of some kind that will help guide us through this rather brief period of challenge — this too, shall pass.

A healthy ego means you ease God’s order instead of edging God out. Lion Spirit’s appearance is a reminder that you have been given the gift of pride and a healthy sense of your worth to express your divine, authentic self in a unique way.

You are both the king and the queen, secure in your prosperity and wisdom and generous of spirit as you help others. Take pride in your ability to serve from the heart. Contentment with what you have, right now, allows you to use your resources wisely as you give to others in ways that educate, heal, inspire, and delight.

Be proud yet humble. Practice gratitude, and you will find that the accolades that come to you are no match for the joy of knowing what you have been able to do for others through expressing the bounty of generosity within you.

Lion Spirit knows there is a great savanna before you and many who will benefit from the healthy expression of your unique set of gifts if you choose to work in partnership with Spirit. All your relationships flourish as you express your worth and generosity of spirit with humility and kindness. What a blessing you can be to all!
