Deer Moon Astrology, 10/9/2021

Today is the best moment in Mercury’s current planetary moonwalk. When the sun and Mercury connect, it’s called cazimi, which means “in the heart of the sun.” The sun gives Mercury retrograde a lot of energy and strength, thus enabling it to perform better than usual. That makes this a great day to make decisions and take action even though Mercury is retrograde.

Another energy at play is the alignment of Venus with the south node in Sagittarius. Although the cazimi energy between the sun and Mercury retrograde boosts communication and aids our choices, Venus and the south node make us feel more tired than usual and a bit lovesick.

Unfortunately, the energy can bring back former friendships, colleagues, and romantic partners we still have feelings for. Be careful how you perceive things today. You might hear news that sends you into a tailspin and creates a conflict of interest or the heart. Money may not flow as freely as before, and you could feel incredibly insecure. It’s important to remember that this is just a moment in time. It won’t last forever.

Later today, Mars and Mercury retrograde link up in Libra, giving power to the thoughts and sentiments that you’ve been mulling over and internalizing. The time to speak up is now. Choose your words carefully. They could be more powerful than you realize.

The Moon is void-of-course until 8:23 AM PDT. Mercury reaches the inferior conjunction with the Sun also conjuncts Mars today. There is a heightened tendency to approach discussion with sharp tongues and intense debate. Motivations and agendas are likely to be at least partially obscured. We need to rely on our individual plumb line to connect us to basic principles. It is very easy to go off-track or lose the thread of our position if we don’t have a basic understanding of our deeper motivations and intentions. We are suddenly in a position where we may begin to lose confidence in our allies and the collaborative framework upon which we have relied. The only way to restore that confidence is by falling back on our shared, bedrock principles and set aside what seems to be conflicting or contradictory information that is showing up around the edges.

You are called to use your Fox Spirit beneficially rather than in ways that keep you from experiencing what you want. Or perhaps right now you are realizing that a situation is trickier than it appears on the surface, and you are afraid to make a move in case it turns out to be a mistake.

Fox Spirit is here to remind you that when you are in alignment with the Great Spirit, the answers and solutions can come quickly and you can trust them. Don’t overthink a situation in order to avoid the challenge of facing a difficult truth.
