Deer Moon Astrology, 9/17/2021

The moon in Aquarius sets off a fraught fixed square with Uranus, which is retrograde in Taurus, while linking up with Saturn, which is retrograde in Aquarius. The result is an intense and austere energy.

Creative blocks are holding you back from achieving artistic greatness. Before you let this affect your confidence in your creative endeavors, try to find new ways to express your sentiments. Have more faith in your talents. Believing in yourself now can boost your artistry to new heights.

Opening your mind to fresh possibilities has been easy in the past, but now you’re finding it hard to embrace a progressive mindset. Instead, you’re leaning toward more conservative views and beliefs. Try to expand your mind to different philosophies even if it’s hard to do at this time.

No one ever said it wouldn’t be lonely at the top. While your professional sphere is expanding and you’re becoming a master in your field, you’re finding that being the boss isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. You miss the days of coasting without much responsibility. Implementing boundaries will help you feel certain about relationship dynamics and allow you to know where everyone stands in the partnership. Remember to respect the limits you’ve set with others, because you may forget that structure in the days ahead.

We face some peculiar challenges today, possibly as the result of over-indulgence. We may also come to the place where unrealistic dreams and desires must be reigned before they produce serious difficulties. Creative solutions are required to overcome the stumbling blocks. In some way or another, our plans are tested as we seek to deal with unexpected circumstances. Although genius is in the air, there are also blind spots and tunnel vision that tests our ability to see creative solutions to complex problems. The Moon’s approach to Jupiter suggests that there may be some luck involved in ironing out today’s difficulties. However, we should not attempt to gloss over or ignore the potential issues that are raised here. They are definitely pointing us towards real problems that must be addressed.

When Ant Spirit comes to visit, it’s to celebrate the benefits of working in a partnership with others as part of a community or tribe. Spirit reminds you that to build your dream, you need to work with others, accept help, and trust in your most important partnership— the one you have with Spirit.

Your intentions will come to fruition if you remain awake and focused on co-creating your reality with others and with Spirit. Remember that the world around you can easily seduce you if you don’t have some sort of practice or discipline like meditation to keep you on track as you build the life you desire.

Connecting with others and having accountability partners can be very helpful, as it’s unlikely that everyone will fall asleep at the same time. The other message Ant Spirit holds is that you are now at an auspicious time to ask for help and receive it, whether you need help assembling a team, finding a new tribe, or requesting assistance from others who are there for you.

Everything is working to support you right now!

The nine single-digit numbers are the foundation of the study of Numerology and the essence of order in our world. Each of the numbers has its own symbolism and meaning — almost like its own personality — and its presence influences our lives in different ways. Understanding the unique meaning of these numbers helps us receive the important messages they are sending when they appear in our Numerology and throughout our lives. The number 1 — the very first of all numbers — puts power directly in our hands as a symbol of independence, confidence, and new beginnings.

There’s so much motivation and momentum surrounding this single-digit number. It is a true pioneer, eager to break ground on new endeavors and pave the way for others to follow. It is a natural leader and a proactive force. The number 1 represents newness, movement, and the possibilities that await us. In spiritual symbolism, it is the number of creation and the birth of all things — the divine origin of the universe.

In Numerology the number 1 is the root of opportunity in our lives. It is a symbol of confidence, power, and action. It pushes us to look at our current circumstances and realize that we have the power to turn them into anything we wish. Even if we are afraid, the 1 inspires us to take control of our future and embrace new beginnings.

Of all the numbers in Numerology, the 1 is the most self-sufficient, needing nothing but itself and its energy to thrive. It doesn’t sit around waiting for opportunities to come about, it makes its own luck by capitalizing on circumstances others may be afraid to explore. The single-digit number 1 doesn’t want to waste any time getting stuck negotiating or discussing plans. Going it alone allows for greater flexibility and quick, efficient movement.

With a positive outlook and unwavering self-determination, this number excels at setting and going after its goals. It has a hard time standing still because it sees a world packed with possibilities just waiting to be taken advantage of. It’s not that the number 1 can’t be satisfied, rather, its satisfaction comes from staying active and always progressing. In a few words: Why stand still when you could advance?

Roadblocks don’t exist for the strong-willed 1 — not because they don’t arise, but because this number’s innovative mindset can find new ideas and creative solutions to work around them. Instead of being daunted by obstacles, the 1 looks at them as a challenge that must be (and will be) overcome. Seeing a door where others see a wall is a major asset to the 1’s success.
