Deer Moon Astrology, 10/17/2021

The moon is in Pisces all day, and its aspects allow us to get some much-needed restorative sleep. When the Pisces moon connects with Pluto in Capricorn, it creates a lofty vibe and intensifies empathic abilities, so be sure to start your day with some grounding to help you remain present as you continue into the afternoon.

We might feel minor frustrations within relationships, making us feel stuck in romantic situations, and we might want to be on the lookout for controlling behavior. Responsibilities could get in the way of self-care routines, and you could also find that harmony is difficult to achieve today. Just remember to be patient with yourself and others.

The moon also forms an alignment to Neptune retrograde in Pisces, which can make it difficult to separate yourself from others. This aspect can also create issues around self-doubt and emotional insecurity, so be extra gentle with yourself and your loved ones.

Luckily, Pluto lends some energy to the situation, which can help you snap out of any personal fears and self-doubt but only if you choose to let go of any negative energy, thoughts, or behavior patterns that are weighing you down. Try to cap off your day with a unique activity so you don’t take the day’s frustrations to bed with you.

The Sun’s square to Pluto completes early this morning, followed by a quieting and inspirational Moon-Neptune conjunction. The intensity of our beliefs is heightened by Jupiter’s direct station. We are looking for ways to share our ideas with others but we will likely get stuck if there is too much persuasion required. Despite today’s intensity, we may not have the confidence to actually try to convince others or push an agenda very far. The Moon goes void-of-course this afternoon at 4:23 PM PDT, which further drains our confidence.

OCT 20: FULL HUNTER’S MOON in ARIES – 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.


Pig Spirit appears to remind you of the right use of intelligence, a gift we all have that is meant to be used with love, compassion, and discernment. Intelligence means recognizing the value of intuition partnered with smarts and common sense, which leads to intelligent solutions.

When Pig Spirit appears, you are called to respect your analytical mind and use it for the highest good, recognizing that all facts must be considered even when they do not fit with what you know already. Spirit blesses us with wisdom when we allow Pig Spirit to nudge us into open-minded, thoughtful dialogues, whether with others or internally as we mull over our ideas and what we have come to understand.

You are intelligent and capable of clear-minded thinking shaped by the wisdom you have accumulated and the intuition that will tell you when you have more learning to do because not all facts are in.

Now is a time that your decision-making powers are reliable, for you are in alignment with Pig Spirit’s keen intelligence.
