Deer Moon Astrology, 10/1/2021

Although there is an urge to mend fences in the morning when Mars in Libra opposes healing centaur Chiron, which is retrograde in Aries, that energy changes less than two hours later.

That’s when Mercury retrograde in Libra squares off with Pluto retrograde in Capricorn for the second time this season. The first time these two planets shared this fraught aspect was on September 22, before Mercury’s retrograde commenced four days later. This is the second part of the drama that began at that time.

Be prepared to rehash old issues, most of which could be met with defensiveness and criticism. Taking the high road won’t be easy, but it will be necessary if you want to avoid arguments. If you choose to work on fixing a situation or communication, there can be positive changes ahead. Watch out for psychological manipulation by others or by you in order to get your way with the people you care about.

In the evening, Mercury shares a minor connection with Venus in Scorpio. This is the energy that we need in order to move away from the issues that started this morning and lasted throughout the day. There is an opportunity to reach a better understanding in relationships with those you care about if you’re all willing to move past the circumstances that created the negative issues and power struggles.

We are looking for commitments today. Yesterday’s laid back atmosphere disappears and we begin to look for ways to assert ourselves. Nonetheless, there are few stable handles to grab hold of and few productive avenues to pursue. Our efforts are most likely to be scattered and wasteful and the lack of success may only exacerbate frustration with the lack of clear, decisive action. We’ll be in a better position if we stay detached and maintain our personal independence. This is not the time to try to convince anyone of anything and whatever imperatives we feel to force decisions are only likely to backfire. There is more support for those who are pointing out discrepancies than those who are trying to make things happen. If there is a good case to be made, we’ll do best to simply offer it confidently — but avoid the sand traps of promotion and persuasion.

Flying high above the landscape, the hawk sees both the big picture and the small details, observes the rain and the pond as well as the cloud, and doesn’t miss anything.

When Hawk Spirit arrives, you are called to pay close attention to messages from Spirit that can appear anywhere in any form. Listen to your intuition and keep your eyes open for synchronicities—the meaningful coincidences.

Hawk Spirit asks you not to dismiss the signs that Spirit is sending to guide you. Lately, have you been hearing the same word or song, or coming across the same symbol here, there, and in the strangest places? Perhaps you hear a song on the radio with just the right lyric pertaining to your query, or you begin to notice uncanny billboards, license plates, or other places where repetitive numbers or words show up for you to notice.

Pay attention to the animals that appear for you, and connect with their symbolism. Spirit wants to communicate and reaches out again and again. When Hawk Spirit appears, it is a sign to listen.

THE NUMBER 32: This is known as the communication number. The number 32 holds a unique vibration similar to that of the number 14. This is a unique number that governs the qualities of communication. The number 32 has a magnetic energy manifested through speech. It was known in the ancient world as the politician’s number. This charismatic quality will have unlimited amounts of charm through the spoken word.

The number 32 will also attract elders. They hold the wisdom to guide and show them along their path of enlightenment. The number 32 is powerful and innovative. It would be essential for the number 32 to remain fixed in their ideas. This is where their true success is. It is likely that others may try to sway or mislead. This is from envy or lack of knowledge. It is for this reason that the number 32 is required to use their inner compassion and intuition to protect others thoughts and ideas from wrecking their perfect plans. The number 32 has an ambitious nature and if used correctly it is guaranteed to take the number 32 far.
