Deer Moon Astrology 8/30/2021

The last quarter moon in Gemini occurs today, giving us a chance to dream big—if we don’t let our anxieties hold us back. Before we can conquer the world, we must conquer our fears. Stop thinking so hard. Feel your feels. Acknowledge your fears and then banish them. All the hours you’ve been putting into your professional endeavors are finally paying off.

But you’re exhausted and in need of some “me” time. Take a moment away from your computer and the demands of work to smell the roses. Recharging your batteries will help you to glow.

Another way to embrace today’s lunar energy is to believe in your dreams. You’re setting your sights very high right now, which could cause some disappointment down the road. Try to be practical in all matters and decisions. Conquering the world sounds exciting, but you might want to start small at first. Dream big with the knowledge that things will happen with time.

However, don’t place all of your cards on the table today. Your overly optimistic attitude could be forcing you to bet big when it comes to love. The caveat is that you may be in love with the idea of love, which could be causing you to overlook flaws in your existing partnership. Take off your rose-colored glasses to see your boo clearly.

Even though Mercury’s arrival in Libra today tries to encourage more harmonious interactions, a lack of clarity breeds impatience. Individual self-confidence is building, likely based more on intuition rather than intellectual clarity. Even so, the impatience and defensiveness may keep us off balance and straining at gnats, rather than actively stepping back to gain a broader perspective through simple observation. Today’s bottom line may simply be that we are inclined to try too hard to please others, without actually understanding what is needed. Slowing down and taking time to listen is probably the only way to stabilize ourselves in this environment.

The bobcat moves furtively and mysteriously, and when Bobcat Spirit appears to you, she brings a powerful reminder that not all things in life can be explained or understood through the power of the intellect. Trying to figure things out, find logical explanations, or predict what will happen based on reason and facts will not provide you with the certainty and comfort you seek.

Bobcat asks you to trust in the Great Mystery and let the secrets of the universe reveal themselves to you through direct experience. Allow your vision to slip into soft focus, and you will see between the lines and observe what has been hidden there all along.

Bobcat Spirit helps you know intimately the pulse of the Divine in the world. Trust in the wisdom and revelations that come to you, yet know that understanding may not come as you would like it to. What you experience through your heart and intuition, which comes to you as the voice of your inner knowing, will guide you now as you accept that secrecy is woven into the fabric of existence.

No matter what, the appearance of Bobcat Spirit is a sign that you are being called to trust, even when what is revealed does not agree with your need for intellectual certainty.
