Deer Moon Astrology, 8/31/2021

When the moon connects with Jupiter, it can add a lot of positivity to the overall energy of the day. Jupiter is an optimistic planet that allows us to call on our philosophical side and expand our worldly horizons. This is also a very lucky aspect. Emotions get bigger, as does a need to open up to other people, something we never thought we could do.

The moon squares Neptune today too, and when Neptune is involved we begin to see the world through rose-colored glasses. This can make us overzealous and impair our judgment of situations because we’re inclined to think the best of other people even if that isn’t necessarily true or real.

We want to believe in the goodness of people, but it’s important to watch out for those who might take us for granted or not have our best interests at heart. You could get played or used and not see it coming, which is why it’s important to be aware of this possibility. The other side of this transit is that we could knowingly let others take advantage of us.

Restrictions seem particularly uncomfortable today if we aren’t able to see how to such restrictions are helping us to develop more effective self-discipline. Teamwork of various kinds is a particularly well-supported pursuit. Although we may strain at the bit, the controlled effort involved in working within a team is an important skill to have here. This atmosphere is especially difficult for show offs and mavericks. Service to others is a crucial element to focus on directly here. The Moon goes void-of-course this afternoon at 1:48 PM PDT, after which communication becomes especially unreliable. Unfortunately, attempts at teamwork may also lose steam. The Moon arrives in Cancer at 10:25 PM PDT.
