Deer Moon Astrology, 10/18/2021

The moon moves into passionate Aries in the morning, then connects with Mercury, which is turning direct from its retrograde in Libra, Saturn in Aquarius, and Venus in Sagittarius. This cosmic energy makes us want to take action concerning relationships.

This doesn’t necessarily mean commitment; rather, it’s more in the tiny details of how we connect to those we care about. Finding the right way to express your deepest feelings could be hard. It’s not that you’re at a loss for words; it’s just that you’re stating the wrong sentiments at inopportune times. Therefore, you can expect to be a part of arguments that you didn’t mean to start.

The silver lining is that after the drama, you’ll be able to reflect and make the necessary changes in communication and the ways you express yourself.

Jupiter has now ended its retrograde journey in Aquarius that began on June 20. Our morals and philosophies can become more rigid as a result, making us more conscious of our innate beliefs.

Mercury turns direct today, having been retrograde since September 26. The post-retrograde effects will last until November 2, which means that we can still expect to be ruminating about the aftereffects of the retrograde for a few weeks. All Mercury-related issues like communication, travel, and technical glitches will return somewhat to normal—but not completely until November 2, when Mercury clears its post-retrograde shadow. Remain calm and carry on through the planetary shift.

We struggle to speak boldly and directly and any outbursts or impulsive actions are subject to reversal when we realize that we have taken a wrong turn. We might expect today’s Aries Moon to give us an extra boost of confidence but it doesn’t really help here. What we do get is extra energy, which may only increase the tendency to make reckless or impulsive decisions. The crux of the challenge is seen when we try to bridge gaps and divides in understanding or beliefs. There may be a strong desire to bring people together in collaboration and compromise but it is extremely difficult to find a center where there can be a meeting of minds.

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.


Weaving your dreams into the fabric of life begins with a single thread of intention, and then Spirit joins you as your co-weaving partner. Take but a single step to make your dream a reality, and Spirit will take ten toward you, for the universe is designed to support your dream-weaving.

Spider Spirit arrives when you need reminding of the awesome power of co-creation with Spirit. Ideas and resources will begin to appear as if by magic as you begin to bring your dreams from the realm of intention into the world of the senses where they take form.

The action you need to take is to be clear about your intentions, and then act as if you have become the one that lives the life you desire. The web of creation has an uncanny way of coming together to weave the beautiful pattern you set in motion.

Another message of Spider Spirit is about any creative project you may be considering: writing, painting, music, journaling, gardening, etc. Now is the time when inspiration wants to be channeled through you as something creative, even artistic and tangible.

Creative projects are successful now, if you are so inclined. Let yourself be open to abundance.
