Deer Moon Astrology, 9/13/2021

Mars enters airy Libra today. When an action planet moves into a hedonistic sign, it usually indicates a time of simplicity and quietness, with no confrontations or emotional assertions taking place.

However, this time around the major theme is Mars squaring Pluto, which occurs on October 22. There is tremendous power and energy bringing up intense feelings in the weeks leading up to that transit. This can make us all want to take action concerning relationships, in both good and bad ways. Deciphering which associations are healthy and which aren’t will be a theme in the month ahead. Learning how to let go of those that aren’t serving our best or highest interests will be pivotal now.

This transit can bring up emotional challenges, power struggles, and love triangles. Control is definitely an important aspect to note. Not having authority over others can tilt us all off center and cause conflict within ourselves. During this time, we can expect added intensity and meltdowns. Feverish emotions and passions will be heightened over these weeks. We can also make discoveries and uncover truths that we didn’t see coming or even know existed. Mars in Libra is here, and it will be a bumpy and wild ride. Fasten your seat belts! Here we go!

The Moon squares Mars early this morning, just before both change signs The sign changes may feel something like a fresh start. However, the unfamiliar territory may also feel very uncomfortable. The Capricorn Moon closes down emotions in favor of practicality. The entrance of Mars into Libra may have us looking for ways to stir things up but we may become impatient when people don’t respond quick enough. Neither the Moon or Mars are very comfortable in these new surroundings, but the Moon’s sextile to Venus around noon keeps things mostly civil. As well, the Sun’s opposition to Neptune discourages any inclination to upset others — and keeps most discomfort and frustration under cover. Despite today’s challenges, the fresh start that we are offered here allows us to lay the groundwork for productive progress ahead of next Monday’s Pisces Full Moon (4:54 PM 28° Pisces/Virgo).

Sometimes, a goal is so enticing and alluring that you lose your footing in the pursuit. You begin to fixate on capturing this prize, whether it be an opportunity you have always wanted, a relationship with that elusive someone, or the promise of “that big break.”

Coyote Spirit warns you that this trickster energy seducing you now will yield nothing but disappointment and unnecessary heartache if you let yourself be fooled. Great Spirit wants the best for you, so when your plans go topsy turvy, know that Coyote Spirit is present to protect and bless you.

Listen to her gentle warning not to take the world too seriously or become too attached to the form and timing of your desire. Something better is beckoning. If you learn your lessons and lighten your heart, it will not be long before you see that crooked though the path may have been, you were on the right one all along.

Number 16 represents the need to take care of others. If you resonate with this number, this is probably the angel’s way of congratulating you on the great job you are doing taking care of your loved ones. This number is also a reminder to start taking care of your well-being, too. You have to be able to take care of others. You usually take care of the needs of others and forget about yourself. For this reason, many people tend to abuse your kindness. You should stop letting this happen to you. This number also says a lot about your generosity and compassion. You just need to protect yourself from people who might use your kindness immensely. If you are attuned to number 16, you have probably been blessed with many talents and gifts. You just have to make an effort to use them better.
