Deer Moon Astrology, 8/26/2021

Venus and healing centaur Chiron oppose each other in the morning, which can allow us to mend a lot of the past pain and hurt that we have regarding relationships and romance. It can also help solve any recent heartbreak with friends by allowing us to discuss our issues in a helpful manner in order to resolve problems. There’s a chance that relationships will mend themselves. As long as most people are willing to do the work to make a situation better, anything is possible.

Not long after that, Mercury and Pluto softly connect in the sky. We can expect the energy to be intense when these two planets get together. Both these planets act as detectives, urging us to be deep in our understanding and desire for information. Solutions can be found and problems resolved. No stone will be left unturned in an effort to gain clarity or understanding of a situation or relationship.

By the end of the day, you’ll have deeper clarity concerning all of life’s mysteries: the good, the bad, and the ugly. If there is something that you’re unsure of, it will be resolved by the afternoon. The universe is showing you the truth, which can help you move forward in all matters.

Today is fraught with complications that may lead us to pull back and reassess. At least, we are more aware of obstacles that must be addressed and our emotions may be frayed as we begin to come down from the excitement of the Full Moon. A Venus-Chiron opposition increases our sensitivity without actually offering the clarity to find solutions. As our energy drops under the waning Moon, there may be some frustration, irritation, or resentment surrounding a belief that more progress should have been made by now. The Moon goes void-of-course in Aries this afternoon at 2:14 PM PDT leaving us prone to impulsiveness if we are feeling frustrated.

These magnificent heralds of Spring are literally trumpeting the joy and freedom of learning to be yourself. Daffodil wants you to “see the light,” to perceive the beauty and perfection and wholeness that is you, just as you are. It is time to release any self-doubt and revel in the freedom and weightlessness of endless possibilities.

“Be who you is, because if you be who you ain’t, then you ain’t who you is!” says Daffodil, loudly. Her message is a reminder of all of our individual journeys to try to figure out who we are and how we want to be. In other words, how we perceive ourselves and the world we live in.

Daffodil wants us to examine all the costumes we wear, all the roles we take on, and all the ways we try to conform and fit in and mold ourselves so that others will perceive us in a certain (favorable) way. She is asking you to cut the cords of self-doubt, and to recognize and embrace the beauty, perfection, wholeness and sacredness in yourself, in others and in the world around you. Just as you are and just as they are.

Can you begin to see the divinity in all beings including yourself?

Consider: What can you see when you put on your “perspectacles”?
