Deer Moon Astrology, 9/2/2021

Today’s Cancer moon harmonizes with Mars, currently in Virgo, and Neptune, which is retrograde in Pisces. Mars and Neptune retrograde also oppose each other, creating a confusing vibe. While the energy can make us feel like we’re ready to take on the world, the presence of Mars and Neptune together can stifle our enthusiasm.

When these two planets come close to each other, or interact with one another, it usually points to ambivalence or uncertainty about how to get things moving forward. A project or personal relationship may feel as though it’s stuck in the mud. As a result, frustration and tempers could be high.

Rather than get frustrated and annoyed, try to remember that this is only a moment in time. While it might be hard to get things moving, use the energy to refine your course of action. Things can always be fine-tuned, and today is a great time to do that.

Venus shares a minor connection with the north node of destiny, urging us to make major decisions when it comes to romance and investing money. You might not be able to come to any conclusions today, which is totally fine. You don’t have to figure out the direction of your relationship and how you want to handle your financial affairs this minute. Give it some time and then you’ll be able to determine the direction you want to take.

Independent and/or rebellious individuals may find themselves isolated and licking their wounds today. This is a day for healing but, if denial is too strong, there may be some intense disappointment or disillusionment to deal with. Even though charm may be shown on the surface, there may still be some simmering resentments or disappointments. Recognition and appreciation for the efforts of others should go a long way towards helping the healing process along. Building consensus can sometimes be considered a fruitless enterprise but in this environment, it is extremely important to future progress. The Mars-Neptune and Moon-Pluto oppositions provide a wealth of opportunities for creative solutions and expanded awareness. However, such opportunities must be consciously pursued and embraced.
