Deer Moon Astrology, 10/20/2021

Today’s vibrant full moon in the cardinal sign of Aries is an absolutely fantastic way to open up an energetic portal of sorts that illuminates the greater aspects of one’s life. This is a lesson in leadership for many, and it can be a release of the old ways in the collective struggle.

Aries energy asks you to open your mind to new possibilities and walk away from an outdated mentality in many aspects of life. People are going to feel this lunar wave, and it might even mean that your rebellious side is going to have to take priority over others’ expectations.

This is also a vibration that can trigger you to step out of some normal way of doing things. People might be exhibiting their inner rage in some capacity. This full moon and its connection with Mars in Libra and Pluto retrograde in Capricorn asks us all to purify and cleanse our anger through meditation. The wounds are still here—some of them are meant to be here for life—but they can be healed if you’re willing to work through them and push through the past. The energy is here for change and growth. Use it wisely.

Also, this morning’s Aries Full Moon requires extraordinary balance. As Mars is approaches a square to Pluto, the Full Moon carries the light into a square to Pluto from the opposite Cardinal sign of Aries. Energy and strong imperatives may easily produce a crisis-driven atmosphere that seems to remain excruciatingly stalled by indecision and the continuing need for further consideration. Although the pressure seems to be extreme, we should be very careful not to be goaded into unwise actions of any kind. The need to bridge differing ideas, insights, and understanding continues to be the main lesson we are required to learn. Especially in this high-pressure, high stakes environment, we should be aware of the need to take as much time as is necessary to be clear on the ramifications and long term effects of the decisions we are trying to make.

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.

NOV 4: NEW MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.

NOV 11: FIRST QUARTER MOON IN AQUARIUS: Your relationship with your emotions might be more complicated, because Moon in Aquarius has a strong need for emotional freedom. However, when you are in a group of people, it is easier for you to understand your feelings and free yourself from negative emotions such as fear, anger and jealousy.

NOV 19: FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE IN TAURUS (BEAVER MOON/FROST MOON): Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.

NOV 27: LAST QUARTER MOON IN VIRGO: Your feeling of safety is now related to order and clarity, even in emotions. You may have the need to organise everything chaotic and disorganized. Try being more tolerant and accept imperfections of life. It is better to trust life and let it run its own way, not everything must be according to our expectations.


Learning to set healthy boundaries is the gift of Armadillo Spirit. You are entering a phase where in order for you to be in alignment with your intentions and co-create your best life, you may have to be discerning and say no to many things that may have been okay for you in the past.

This also means that you need to learn where you end and where others begin, what is yours to own and what is not. Know your limits and understand that it’s an empowering choice to say no to what doesn’t feel right.

Armadillo Spirit is here to tell you it’s time to be honest with yourself about what you really want. Be clear on what you are agreeing to, declare what your needs are, and say no as a full sentence; these are acts of respect and kindness to others as well as to yourself. Trust your body’s signals, and you will know what to do.

Armadillo Spirit guides you in making good decisions that are grounded in a strong sense of what belongs to you and what does not.
