Deer Moon Astrology, 10/8/2021

The sun and Mars share a conjunction in Libra today. Both of these heavenly bodies are debilitated, which means that they have issues regarding performing well. The sun in Libra focuses on partnerships instead of the self. Mars in Libra focuses on handling matters with tact, grace, and diplomacy.

In this case, the sun is powerless against Mars because Mars is stronger than the sun in Libra. When these two planets unite, they’re unable to assert their feelings or will, which can stir negative sentiments and rudeness brewing beneath a pleasant surface. Also, people might choose to stir the pot and thereby indirectly sabotage others. This means that any passive-aggressive actions intended to hurt outwardly friendly people will cause friction in relationships.

Mercury, still retrograde, adds to the mix even though it isn’t aspecting the sun or Mars today. Keep in mind that miscommunication and misinformation can cause issues throughout the day. If you doubt the veracity of what you’re hearing, be assertive and (kindly) ask for more information. No one will be annoyed because you aren’t certain about a situation or relationship. If they are, you don’t have to engage in their negative behavior. Just opt out of any discussion with them. Remember that you hold the power, not the other way around.

Venus arrives in Sagittarius this morning, bringing a new openness. However, revelations may lead to extraordinary and surprising vulnerabilities. In essence, if we are out on a limb on our own, today is the day that the limb may break. The need for balance, under this week’s Libra New Moon, brings a desire to fall back on tradition and established protocols. Idealism may be a refuge for those whose tangible results are shown to be lacking. Maintaining the proper balance requires self-discipline. Some are prone to over-optimism and an unrealistic desire for complete freedom to walk away from any obligations or responsibilities. Today’s sharp tongues, accusations, or rhetorical debate does have the potential for resolution and creative solutions. However, we need to walk a very fine line and reserve our most harsh judgements for another day.

OCT 13: FIRST QUARTER MOON in CAPRICORN – 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.


It takes courage to face challenges and right now, Panther Spirit is here to say that you are braver than you think. Now is the time to take a risk and step into a different aspect of your being.

Speak as you have never spoken before, act as you have always dreamed you might have the courage to act, love fearlessly and fully, and expect to feel the adrenaline rush as you are initiated into a new, braver, bolder self.

Panther Spirit says the time for dreaming about what you want to do is giving way to that first courageous act toward reclaiming your Panther Spirit and power. Your new identity may feel strange at first, but you have what it takes and your soul wants this. Be bold!

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.
