Deer Moon Astrology, 9/18/2021

The moon in Aquarius is emotionally bright and lucky this morning when it connects with Jupiter, which is retrograde in Aquarius. Possibilities seem limitless because we’re able to embark on exciting new ventures.

The flip side to this transit is that you could be too optimistic, which can create a false sense of security. Before taking a major leap of faith or investing all your money in a project, take the time to weigh all the options. Although this transit is extremely lucky and beneficial, it’s always best to make sure that you’re doing things in moderation, especially with the Aquarius moon.

On another note, we may be more interested in conspiracy theories before the moon enters Pisces this afternoon. The lunar Aquarius energy promotes the discussion of controversial topics, and you could spout words of wisdom that cause some fallout from others.

If you’re open to leaning into the higher vibration of the day, this can also be a very transformative and philanthropic vibe. The moon entering Pisces adds a different ambience. Sensitivities, emotions, and intuition heighten as your brain switches from logic to relying solely on feelings.

The Moon is void-of-course until 1:22 PM PDT this afternoon. We are definitely encouraged to slow down, take a breath, and let go of unrealistic dreams and focus our creative instincts on practical goals and approaches. Indecision may hold us back beyond all reason and suddenly, the confidence that we may have felt earlier in the week, comes into question. Most of these challenges are actually far less complicated than we think. Creativity and simple solutions will go far to stabilizing our progress. It is likely that we should allow ourselves the time to take a break, rather than pushing too hard with misdirected determination.

If you’re feeling nervous and wobbly, stop worrying about the past and the future. Instead, be present in the moment, balancing, for now is the space in which creativity arises. Creativity is your birthright, but if you’re moving too quickly in an attempt to avoid the discomfort of transition, you can blind yourself to the miraculous possibilities that are before you now and those just coming into being.

The past has its lessons and planning has its merits, but right now you may be imbalanced because you’re becoming too nostalgic for what once was or too anxious about what the future might hold.

There is time to plan carefully. For now, be still and know that Spirit is here, co-creating with you in this moment. The next step will appear when it needs to appear. Relax into a state of equanimity and balance, so any anxiety can transmute into trust and faith that all will be as it will for the highest good.

The numerological meaning of 26 will be informed by the root numbers 2, 6 and 8.

The number 2 is the number of cooperation, teamwork and emotional introspection. If number 1 is the number of leadership and originality, number 2 is the number of the sidekick, the team player or the partner.

Number 6 is the number of the homemaker. Number 6 is the first perfect number, meaning that it is both stable and harmonious.

When you put these two numbers together you get a stable and reliable team player and partner whose energy and thoughts revolve primarily around the home or compassionate activities.

Number 8, however, is a highly functional energy involved with achievement and success.

8 is the number of the builder, the energy that makes the creation of buildings and large organizations possible.
