Deer Moon Astrology, 8/22/2021

Today brings the sturgeon blue moon in Aquarius. This luminary forces us to embrace our inner rebel and defy the status quo. The Aquarius blue moon is pushing you to open your mind and understand the truth of all matters no matter how strange it may be.

Today’s Moon (5:01 AM PDT 29° Aquarius) signals a remarkable shift in perception and awareness. Not everyone may fully understand how the atmosphere has shifted. We have the opportunity to recognize remarkable connections that may have seemed to be hidden — even if they have always been right in front of us. The Moon moves quickly into Pisces following the Full Moon, which provides a wealth of intuitive assistance to help us understand the new perspectives that we are being offered. The Sun arrives in Virgo this afternoon, which should provide an extra dose of stabilizing energy that allows us to take time to consider where we are and how to proceed. The forming Venus-Saturn trine is also a great help, making room to form new alliances or deepen those we have already been cultivating. Today’s shifts are momentous but we should avoid trying to act too fast but instead, take time to survey the landscape.

Uranus, the modern ruler of Aquarius and currently in Taurus, activates this luminary to take a walk on the wild side. Expect the unexpected and embrace the strange events or feels that are headed your way. You’re the leader of your pack, which means that you hold a lot of influence over your crew. Now you can use your popularity for a good cause and organize a local protest or charity with your squad. With your long contact list, your humanitarian endeavor will be very successful.

Your friendship circle is evolving and changing. It’s important to note that you’re not growing apart from your besties, but you’re transforming the way you hang out. Opt to spend an evening chilling at home with them and watching a movie rather than rushing out to a restaurant.

Virgo season begins today, and this year it will be intense for everyone’s love life. But you’ll be able to make some sweeping changes when it comes to how you partner with others and how you love them if you move toward growth and transformation when it comes to your desires.

Iris wants you to look within to discover what lights you up, to discover that Divine spark of inspiration that is yours to manifest and express in whatever way feels good.

Inspiration may strike at any time, and when it is aligned with who you are, you can be sure you will know it. It feels so good on every level. Effortless flow. Thoughts, words and actions aligned whatever you are creating.

Consider: What is it that you want to create in this world?
