Deer Moon Astrology, 10/5/2021

The moon moves into Libra today and harmonizes with retrograde Saturn in Aquarius, healing centaur Chiron, which is retrograde in Aries, and the nodes of destiny on the Gemini and Sagittarius axis. The Libra moon and Saturn retrograde in Aquarius, are pushing us to invest our energy wisely. Don’t engage in discussions with people who want to control and dominate you. Breaking patterns isn’t easy, but it’s necessary to rebuild the foundation in a stronger, bolder way.

The airy moon-Saturn connection urges you to get outside your comfort zone and discuss situations and relationships even if it makes you feel uncomfortable. If you allow yourself to express your feelings, then Chiron will be able to heal matters as soon as you speak your piece (which won’t be easy to do). Emotions run high when Chiron is involved, but all the heartache and heartbreak can be mended after the deepest wounds are opened, which happens after you confront them and communicate your needs.

For some, this may mean that a partnership comes to an end if things can’t change and you’ve abandoned hope. The nodal energy definitely adds a fated tone to the vibe and is meant to change our world forever, a sentiment that will be emphasized by tomorrow’s new moon.

The Moon is void-of-course overnight, arriving in Libra at 5:34 AM PDT and setting the stage for tomorrow morning’s Libra New Moon (4:05 AM PDT 13° Libra), which is exactly conjunct Mars. The contradictions we find today are likely to be amplified throughout the new lunar cycle. Libra’s need for balance comes into focus. We are stirred to action but must be sure we take time for rest and reflection. Impulsive or reckless actions will produce especially harsh blow back. We should be especially aware of the potential for self-sabotage. Careful planning is well supported here but any determination to achieve quick results by taking shortcuts could very well undercut our ultimate success.

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.


Are you feeling shaky because you have made a bold move and have not yet seen confirmation that everything is going to work out? Or is fear holding you back? Are you afraid to act until all risk of failure has been removed?

The moment when there is no risk whatsoever will never come, so follow the urging of your Panther Spirit within and look your fear in the eye. Have you ever heard the famous line “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”? Stare down your fear, and it will retreat and make way for your courage to fill you head to toe.

Perhaps you are afraid you can’t trust the power that is rising in you, and you fear the qualities you will find within when you look deeply at why you resist the challenge before you. Every part of you, no matter how dark it may seem, has a light quality, so be bold and face it; own the light and make peace with your shadow. Spirit trusts you, so be brave and trust yourself.

This number is stabilizing energy and offers a level of certainty. It represents foundation, order/organization, structure, security, and sufficiency. It also is a number for; groundedness, practicality as well as relaxation, and caution. It encourages you to rest your mind and intellect every once in a while since Number 4 is a hardworking number to begin with.

At the esoteric level, it represents the act of creating earthly reality out of our dreams. As well as form out of chaos. It is the 4 classical elements as well as the 4 main wind directions. It is both associated with the planet of surprises, Uranus, and the Earth we live on which represents groundedness.

Master Number 44 is the number of “Manifestation”, its main energy is materializing the ideas of Master Number 22 and the teachings of Master Number 33.

Like Master Number 11, it is also highly intuitive and visionary. Note that despite its association with the material world and manifestation, that it is not strictly limited to material wealth. The physical world can mean the physical body. People who are born with this number may be destined to become healers, such as doctors, nurses, and paramedics.
