Deer Moon Astrology, 9/23/2021

Venus in Scorpio and Uranus, which retrograde in Taurus, share their yearly opposition today. There is no balance when it comes to these planets, which is why emotions will be so extreme throughout the day.

You can expect the unexpected when it comes to love, relationships, and money. The way you feel about others will be up and down, and partnerships will feel like a roller-coaster ride. There could be a few major plot twists that happen in the most unpredictable ways, and shock could rock your personal life. Shake-ups, breakups, breakdowns, transformations, and revolutions could happen today in matters of love and romance. Your partner or you might want to end the relationship in the morning only to change your mind in the evening. The reason is because we all want to be free, but we don’t necessarily want to let go of the current situation.

Neptune, currently retrograde in Pisces, shares a minor connection with the north node of destiny too. This adds confusion to what we want to build and bring to the world or partnerships, which can make us feel a little more stuck then usual. Although you want to spread your wings and fly, it might not be the time to do so because you’re unsure about what you want to move toward.

The Moon’s entrance into Taurus and the waning Venus-Uranus opposition brings a determined intention to begin building the case for taking tangible action. Even though uncertainty remains, sitting on the fence feels more intolerable today. There may be little to no bravado. It is dogged determination that manifests today’s decisiveness. However, as we look for ways to show our decisiveness and determination, we will need to tread very carefully. Humility and broad perspectives keep our actions relevant. Mercury will turn retrograde next Monday and we should recognize that any new information could easily set us off balance again if we are pushing too hard to move forward without maintaining a view of the Big Picture and building the necessary consensus.

Being sensitive and having empathy for others can become a heavy burden if you don’t practice self-care. Could it be you’re feeling stressed because you’ve tuned in to challenging emotions that aren’t even yours?

Chameleon Spirit does not want you to adapt to these conditions by withdrawing or distracting yourself, hoping the feelings will just go away, or attempting to rescue another who may be having a pity party; you can be swallowed up trying to manage it all.

It is time to figure out where you end and the rest of the world begins. Not all conditions are yours to match. You need to distinguish your own color from the rest of the world right now and take time out to soothe your sensitive soul.

Choose some activities that will restore your sense of being grounded and avoid people who revel in drama. Take a break from social media too. Self-care and a timeout is the answer to this temporary dilemma.
