Deer Moon Astrology, 9/9/2021

The Libra moon connects with Venus, also in Libra, and Pluto, retrograde in Capricorn. This cosmic collision adds a lot of intensity when it comes to emotional affairs of the heart. Power struggles or triangular situations might surface today, creating some tension within partnerships. Emotions will be heightened, as will a need to control or take charge of a relationship.

The caution is that your partner might feel some resentment due to your intense vibe. Being too demanding or dominating or restricting can push them to want their freedom. Rather than stir up confrontation, it’s advised that you step away from the fraught energy. Think about whether it’s wise to address the issue directly or make a mountain out of a molehill just to prove a point. The less attention you give to people or matters that trigger emotions the better.

Also today, be aware that love triangles can form and take on a life of their own. Before you engage in any clandestine activities, ask yourself if you really want to go down that path. Once you open Pandora’s box, there may be no going back. You might decide that it would be better to work on your partnership rather than add a third party to the mix. After all, if you want to repair your relationship, the added drama won’t help.

Self-determination and assertiveness may seem to fall off a cliff today. We may be weighed down by a strong sense of responsibility but find few effective options for distributing the weight effectively. The Moon’s trine to Jupiter and conjunction with Venus may offer superficial generosity and charming overtures. However, the Moon also squares Pluto today, which is more than likely to have us eyeing the exits, looking for some kind of escape route. Today’s pressure doesn’t really offer enough outlets for productive accomplishment. Nonetheless, even though we may feel that we are stumbling blindly through some sort of crisis, there are opportunities to learn important lessons.

Tolerance can be a somewhat confusing concept. On the one hand it is defined as the capacity and inner strength to endure, and even overcome adversity. But it is also defined as the ability or willingness to put up with something that you may not agree with.

Of course life itself and the lessons of nature aren’t always simple, easily digestible tidbits. They are more like long, thoughtful conversations that invite you to take a deep dive into your self, your life, your stories and your beliefs.

Tolerance then is partly about learning effective coping and coexisting skills and the ability to persevere even when things might not necessarily be going your way. But the challenge is to do so in alignment with your own heart’s truth and your inner wisdom, with grace, understanding and compassion for all. Love, not fear. And this is a lifetime’s work for sure!

Consider: What untruth have you become tolerant of?
