Deer Moon Astrology, 9/10/2021

Venus enters Scorpio today. Taboos and secrets will be the topics of choice in your communications. Being able to openly talk about edgier sentiments and the darker side of things will be essential to embracing your innermost thoughts. You want to go extra deep, and it’s okay to push the envelope every now and again. Your curious mind can help you gain insight or knowledge you never thought possible. Your detective hat is now on, and you’re eager to understand all the mysteries of life on a deeper level. The world is yours for the taking, so explore it!

Often, you’re too quick to speak and think about situations and relationships, but now you’re taking a step back from talking and thinking impulsively. In the coming weeks, you’ll need to think about what you say to ensure that you don’t put your foot in your mouth. This will help you find the right way to express yourself.

Also, it’s totally okay to not have the last word, which is something you’re learning now. Your co-workers may not have your best interests at heart. Before you share confidential information or your ideas, be aware that they could be extra duplicitous right now. Loose lips sink ships. Don’t sabotage yourself by oversharing with your colleagues.

Venus moves into Scorpio today and provides us with some tangible sense of direction, along with some extra determination. Since the Moon is also in Scorpio today, squaring Saturn, a heavy sense of responsibility continues to weigh us down. However, with a better sense of direction, we can more effectively handle the responsibility and actually produce tangible results. We can expect some unexpected events or spontaneous insights to steer us as well. We may find ourselves feeling off balance or see others acting unpredictably. Nonetheless, there are opportunities that come with the surprises or unsteadiness.

MERCURY RETROGRADE IN LIBRA, 9/27/2021: Every Mercury retrograde has a pre-shadow and post-shadow phase. During these phases, the energy can be thrown off much like how it is during the actual Mercury retrograde period. It is actually the time where people start making minor mistakes that may intensify as Mercury goes into the Mercury retrograde station.

Mercury retrograde station is where Mercury actually looks like it stops before looking like it is headed backwards. This is when Mercury is officially in retrograde. Mercury station through Mercury direct are the dates that are usually quoted as Mercury retrograde.

It is true, this is when Mercury retrograde is official. The pre-shadow Mercury retrograde lasts about 10-14 days. The energy intensifies with the pre-shadow Mercury retrograde 3-4 days ahead of Mercury station. Mercury retrograde lasts approximately 2 weeks. Then there are 3-4 days of the intensified post-shadow phase with the post-shadow winding down for about 10-14 more days.

If you were born with Mercury retrograde in your chart, you can expect the pre- and post-shadow phases to be especially tumultuous and chaotic. And, depending on the astrological sign it occurs in, you may or may not be affected as much by the actual retrograde period.

Crow Spirit wants to know why you think there is no magic in the world. Or do you believe that there once was, but it ran out, leaving nothing but ordinariness? Although conditions have become challenging, you have no reason to believe that everything you’ve set an intention for will elude you. Right now, the outer world is shifting. Can you feel it?

Maybe you are fretting about experiencing the results of some of your poor choices or judgment from the past. Crow Spirit is here to remind you that you can always course correct and get back on track.

Maybe you’ve been hit by a loss or disappointment as a result of an event that had absolutely nothing to do with your manifesting, yet it has shaken you to your core. Crow Spirit asks you to trust that no matter the temporary conditions, things will right themselves very soon.

The Law of Balance makes it inevitable that this too shall pass.


Insight, responsibility, self-discipline, strength, compassion, spiritual consciousness, wisdom, a desire for peace and love for all of humanity.
