Deer Moon Astrology, 10/21/2021

Your creative side needs some kind of organization, but the passion is still burning in your soul, especially as the waning gibbous moon trots through earthy Taurus after yesterday’s poignant full moon in Aries. There’s a dynamic pull between structure and ambition as a continuing presence with a square between the moon in Taurus and Saturn in Aquarius. Also, the moon’s alignment with Uranus, also in Taurus, will shake things up.

The square between Saturn and Uranus that has been active for all of 2021 gets an emotional tug that can awaken arguments, issues, and feelings from February 17 and June 14 (when they first squared off; the third time occurs on December 24). This is when the conflict arises and when you really need to hold it down. Remember that everyone thinks they’re right at this time.

There is a conviction in the collective that can go either way. Pay close attention to the news you receive over the next few days, and don’t give up on your dream. With plenty of raw and real conversations going on, you might just come to a conclusion that you’ve needed to see and understand for many years. Never compromise your interests for the needs of others.

The pressure of today’s Mars-Pluto square creates extreme pressure for change. We are required to learn important lessons about our individual capacity to initiate change but also our need to work closely with those around us — which requires compromise. Today’s lessons are powerful and may seem extremely difficult. The stakes are high and our confidence may have been severely challenged by the number of slowdowns, wrong turns, and seemingly poor choices of the past few weeks. Nonetheless, the potential for success is inherent in today’s challenges through maintaining deep sincerity and a dedication too truth. In essence, today is a day to take the bull by the horns, work through our fears, and finally take direct action.

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.


The humble mouse pays attention to the smallest details, and Mouse Spirit calls on you to notice the nuances and the fine print at this time. In your eagerness to meet your goals and pursue your dreams, it is easy to forget the importance of clear communication and tending to the little things, including people’s subtle signs that they are unhappy as well as the small voice inside of you that says, “This doesn’t feel right.”

Take your time to sniff out what you need to know. Is there some detail or nuance about how you engage others or operate in the world that is key to your success but you’ve too readily dismissed as “nothing big” or “nothing special”?

Mouse Spirit reminds you that what seems small may be more important and powerful than you think, so look again. Do not underestimate yourself or your potential for co-creating something amazing when you pay attention to the details!
