Deer Moon Astrology 8/24/2021

The Pisces moon aspects Pluto early this morning, and this planetary connection can make us more inquisitive and knowledgeable about the world around us.

Mercury and Neptune retrograde oppose each other today as well. This might encourage psychic breakthroughs because you’re seeing things you hadn’t noticed before. Pay attention to what’s revealed during the wee hours of the morning or the information brought to you in your dreams. It might hold important relevance for your life in the future. The best way to keep tabs on this energy is to keep a dream journal of your thoughts. This can create an ongoing dialogue with your intuition in the weeks ahead.

The moon is void-of-course for most of the day after it aspects Pluto. This means that the moon doesn’t make any major astrological aspects to other planets and we won’t receive any pertinent information throughout the day—or, if we do, it won’t be anything we didn’t see coming or that will rock our world over the long term.

The moon isn’t working now and neither should you. Take a break today. Stretch your legs whenever possible. This evening, be sure to do something nice for yourself that requires a minimal amount of thinking and physical activity. Another great thing to do during a void-of-course moon is to rest. That means you should enjoy a nap if possible.

The Moon’s arrival in Aries takes us into a new round of activity. Communication is stirred. We are finally ready to pull on some of the new threads of awareness, insight, and inspiration that have been offered by Sunday’s Aquarius Full Moon. Nonetheless, we may be particularly vulnerable to criticism — although it may not be obvious. Organizing our thoughts may still be somewhat challenging, which could lead to some missteps. We may be quite self-critical and prone to perfectionism. As well, we may be looking for some approval that doesn’t seem to come. In general, we may do better to keep our head down and keep forging ahead, while trying to take any external criticism in stride.

Pushing too hard or rushing to leave others in the dust is not the way of Turtle Spirit, even if it seems at times it is the way of the world. Turtle Spirit wants you to remember that you are a human being not a human doing.

In the protection position, Turtle Spirit is giving you the message that the best thing to do right now is let go of the drive to compete or control and do more; instead, simply be.

As an old Norse saying goes, “We do without doing and everything gets done.” Spirit conspires on your behalf, so slow to a crawl or even stop, releasing any fear that life is a race that you might be losing.

Trust that peace, prosperity, love, and purpose are all yours to enjoy right now. Do not “do.” Simply be.

In essence, the numerology number 62 is a business number with a strong inclination to benefit family and other relationships. It is realistic and efficient. And a builder.

The number 62 is also a diplomat. And idealistic.

62 is a balanced number. It tends to build large works that benefit both its immediate family and society for a long time. Its works tend to be harmonious, not only within themselves but also within the environment where they exist.

What you have, then, is a number that insists on business-like conduct and a balance of

  • work and play,
  • socializing and family time, and
  • interaction with friends and alone time.

The number 62 is a business number that isn’t all about money. Efficiency and values are deemed to be just as important.
