Deer Moon Astrology 8/20/2021

Today’s Aquarius moon links up with Saturn, which urges us to create boundaries and impose structures in relation to others. Understanding your emotional role with others is essential, because you’ll be asked by the universe to check in with your actions to make sure that you don’t overstep in relationships and situations. Even though you desperately want to help, it might not always be the best idea.

Mercury shares a minor aspect with Saturn after connecting with Uranus, which further expresses the lunar sentiment. It’s important to stay in your lane throughout the day. Although you’ll want to help others in their time of need, it’s best to help them from a distance without getting too emotionally invested in the situation.

The reason is that it could backfire on you tomorrow, when the moon makes some explosive aspects that could create disharmony and aggression in your live and daily routine. All of this can be avoided if you choose to take a cool and calm approach to matters today. You can assume that today is pivotal in how you deal with problems because it will be an important factor in the celestial energy ahead. You can control your own destiny, and today confirms that sentiment, which you’re feeling deep within.

Although there may be a strong undercurrent of frustration or a feeling that things just aren’t perfect, we are able to make great strides today. Things fall into place spontaneously under the forming Mars-Uranus trine and we get a taste of some of the much needed change that we are looking for. This is a free-wheeling, spontaneous atmosphere but the Moon-Saturn conjunction helps to keep things under control and manageable. There is also an optimistic idealism that could lead us to go a bit too far in our pronouncements, showing a bit too much pride. We should be careful to take today’s success with a dose of humility and gratitude.
