Deer Moon Astrology, 10/12/2021

The second quarter moon in Capricorn allows us to make important choices that we may have left on the back burner for some time. When the Capricorn moon squares off with the sun in Libra, we can expect to feel an internal tug that forces us to let go of the past and start anew. This will be tough, though, because the Libra sun is indecisive. However, the Capricorn moon is strong and calculating, which will help us push to cut ties with the past and move on in a healthy way, but not without some conflict and drama, unfortunately.

Mercury retrograde and Mars are both in wishy-washy Libra, which adds to the tug-of-war that’s going on in your mind and heart. Even if you don’t want to let go and move forward, Mars will push you to. But you won’t want to make the first move. The passive energy of Mars in Libra ensures that you’ll put it on the other person because you don’t want to be responsible for ending a situation or relationship. The issue is that someone has to be the responsible one and take action. The flip-flopping of accountability rests in the hands of Mercury retrograde. Even though matters might seem resolved by the end of day, there could be a reversal of fortune or decision coming soon.

Activity continues to heat up under today’s 1st Quarter Moon. Taming the impulsiveness is our biggest challenge. There is a strong desire to throw thoughtful consideration out the window entirely and move forward recklessly in order to finally show some tangible results. What may actually slow us down, however, is the nagging desire to find some kind of perfect solution. Unrealistic idealism holds us back from taking a definitive stand. In fact, this may be what keeps us from pushing too hard. Nonetheless, there is a significant amount of pressure and impatience today that is likely to keep us on edge.

The purpose of the number 50 is to promote fusion between body and soul, mind and spirit.  Life is a continuing education for the number 50, as this energy seeks to learn their real values relating to their ultimate goals and aspirations,  and learning to obey their inner feelings to ‘know thyself’.  The happy disposition of the 50 Destiny number attracts friends and good fortune and they know how to take advantage of all the blessings  —  Mentally, Physically and Spiritually. 

The focus of 50 is to attain greater stability.  The law of 5 is ‘freedom in action’, and when coupled with the vibration of the number 0, this energy is amplified.

The number 50 is masculine, introvert and relates to the star sign Leo.  The related planet is Mercury and the Tarot Card representative of the 50 / 5 vibration is the Heirophant.

The 50 Destiny number individual will have the opportunity to learn the true meaning of change in their life.  Life for the 50 / 5 energy will be filled with freedom, constant change, curiosity, adventure and un-attachment.  The 50 / 5 energy will live more, see more and experience more life experiences than any other vibration. 

The number 50 symbolizes the principle of multiplicity, progression and passion.  50 / 5 signifies the need for change, variety and new growth.  50 is the broadcaster, disseminating information and asking questions. 

The 50 vibration loves pleasure and needs to watch over-indulgence and impulsiveness.  The impulsive nature of the 50 / 5 Destiny number allows them to enter a situation, then be able to discard it just as quickly.  The 50 energy does not hold onto anything that creates monotony in their life.

50 is the number of progress and growth, for without change there is stagnation.

The 50 energy appears to be outgoing and extrovert  –  but the natural introverted energy leads them to an interest in the unknown and metaphysical studies.
