Deer Moon Astrology, 10/5/2021

The Virgo moon aspects Venus in Scorpio while opposing Neptune, which is retrograde in Pisces, and galvanizing Pluto, which is retrograde in Capricorn. When these four planets meet, we can expect emotions to be intense throughout the day.

The Virgo moon linking up with Venus in Scorpio allows us to take romantic matters very seriously and decide how to spend our money wisely. Investments made during this time can bring great returns. The caution is that Mercury is still in its planetary moonwalk, which means that it would be best to make well-considered decisions about what you’re investing your money in before doing so.

The Virgo moon’s opposition to Neptune is going to take us all on an intoxicating and dizzying emotional spin. Intuition is heightened, but the truth of matters could be more complex than we imagined (once again, due to Mercury retrograde). When these planets come together, you can lose yourself in love and feelings. You see the world through rose-colored glasses that allow you to escape present matters. The Virgo moon’s kiss with Pluto intensifies emotions. It motivates us to move forward and be inspired, which is what we’ll all need this evening.

The Moon’s opposition to Neptune today may bring some extra inspiration or instead, take us down some confusing rabbit holes. Whatever confidence and Big Picture perspective we had yesterday may temporarily disappear into foggy confusion and uncertainty. The challenge comes when we rely on untrustworthy sources or trust too much without verifying our information. At best, today offers some unusual and interesting viewpoints that may or may not be important to our overall understanding. Misunderstandings are possible but can will be easily cleared up. This is not a day to go too far out on a limb.

OCT 06: NEW MOON in LIBRA – You might have a strong need for balance and harmony now. You probably desire to keep things “nice” rather than venturing into fundamental questions in order not to disturb the peace. You must learn to share your good and bad feelings. Do not be afraid to be who you really are, despite what is expected of you.

You might have a strong need for being useful to the and you look for justification in the outside world. You may underestimate what you want from yourself and for yourself. Shyness may be accompanied by resentment of the fact that others ignore you. Do not seek approval from the outside, it will not help you get rid of your doubt and it is harmful to you. You have to trust your inner values.

The feeling of uncertainty can make you solve problems faster then is natural. Do not rush as if there was a deadline. Try to slow down so that you can decide what you want to do and proceed at your own comfortable pace.

 – You feel safe in moments when you can impress others and get praise and admiration. Yet, when you get into the spotlight, you may find yourself at a loss. Maybe you should admit your fear of criticism and your inability to accept criticism. It is very important to accept feedback and use it for improvement.


 No matter how much you may have lost, or how you have been disappointed, you are called by Snake Spirit to shed the past and practice radical self-acceptance now.

Only by forgiving yourself can you move on, regardless of whether anyone else is ready for healing. When your tender new skin first becomes exposed, you may feel uncomfortable; love yourself and remain vulnerable anyway.

You have been weak, but now you are becoming strong and developing wisdom, and you will do better in the future.

Snake Spirit reminds you that hearts can be so easily wounded; apologies and amends go a long way. Self-forgiveness for your role in what happened can help you heal.

Remember, it is the one who has been wounded who often has the greatest power to help others heal.

The number 55 is a function of the number 5 being repeated twice. So, in order to get to the bottom of Master Number 55, you need to first find out what number 5 means.

Number 5 signifies that you are on the brink of stepping into a pivotal time for your life. It will be a time of enormous personal freedom and positive change.

If you have been uneasy about welcoming new elements and experiences into your life until now, your angels are asking you to let your guards down.

You must allow novelty to find a way into your life. Number 55 brings with it feelings of adventure, excitement and pleasure.

The change that is about to enter your life may come in any form. It could be a major job opportunity or a new relationship. You need to be fully present and usher it into your life. For this, you must let go of your past.

You cannot concentrate on your future and embrace new beginnings if you are still stuck in your past.

Perhaps, you have been finding it difficult to persist towards your personal goal achievements lately. Keep faith in yourself and don’t get derailed or be afraid of change.
