Deer Moon Astrology, 10/23/2021

Today’s Gemini moon shares a minor frustration with the Scorpio sun. This is an uncomfortable energy that can bring out the awkward disconnect between heart and mind, something that some of us will be feeling throughout the day.

The Gemini moon also shares a gentle connection with Saturn, currently in Aquarius. Again, this can add a tinge of frustration because you may feel stifled and lost concerning how to assert your emotions without having a temperamental meltdown.

The same applies to how you connect with those you care about. Using your words wisely is important, but you could make the occasional mistake here and there. Instead of ignoring them, some people won’t be amused by the accidental cavalier word choices you use throughout the day, and there could be confrontations. Hopefully, Saturn can allow us to maturely make up with those we have issues with.

A connection between the Gemini moon and the north node of destiny makes us feel as though the events of the day are fated. If arguments occur, it’s meant to improve the dynamic between you and others. Think of this as a chance to clear the air by hitting the reset button, as well as an opportunity to mend any inner turmoil that may surface throughout the day. Today is more of a process day rather than a day for actual progress. We need to take time to make new assessments, based on the new view that we have from today’s vantage point. The importance and value of collaboration is extremely significant here. Discriminating strength and determined compromise blend today but we may have some difficulty orienting ourselves to this new environment. We may find ourselves looking for more than just a new perspective. There is some tendency to withdraw to a place of safety but we may be prone to escaping through fantasy, dreaming up grand schemes rather than focusing on the raw materials we have in front of us. Our confidence remains unsteady even though the barriers to our progress are actually finally beginning to fall away.

OCT 28: LAST QUARTER MOON in LEO – 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.


If you are walking awkwardly and feeling embarrassed, Eagle Spirit is here to tell you that is only because, right now, you are meant to fly. Soar over the troubles that have you feeling scared and alone, see the big picture yet retain your eagle eye for the details that help you claim your wisdom and courage. Or perhaps you are making yourself small for the sake of getting others to accept you?

Now is not the time to be vulnerable and dependent, for you have the wings to fly on your own and you need to do that at this time. There is no need to huddle in a shelter or even to seek out a flock to support you, for Eagle Spirit says you have tremendous wisdom and courage within.

Let it arise so that you might soar proudly, with the angels serving as the wind beneath your wings. From these heights, you can make the best and most powerful choices for the highest good of all.
