Venus, the planet of love and money, squares off with Neptune, the planet of dreams and illusion. The energy will be tough to adjust to because you could feel uncertain and paranoid about relationships and money.
Venus, which is currently in Sagittarius, just escaped its connection with the south node of destiny, which made us all feel insecure or lovesick or raised financial issues. Neptune is currently retrograde in Pisces. When these two planets square off, it can cause a lot of fogginess around partnerships and investments. Therefore, this isn’t a good day for speculative gambles or investing in the stock market. Any investments made today may not yield as much profit as initially anticipated. Also, we could be too trusting of those who advise us on increasing our portfolios when they don’t have our best interests at heart. This could lead to deception.
The same applies to personal relationships. The need to have faith in and trust your friends, family, and partner can keep you from seeing the truth. On the other hand, you could see flaws you’ve ignored up to now. The cosmic energy is very dense, which is why it would be best to rest and retreat instead of try to connect with people. Watch a movie and take a nap instead of falling down the rabbit hole of paranoia.
There are important opportunities to stabilize our overall outlook here. Last week’s pressure cooker may have taken quite a toll but we have the chance to consolidate our gains and cut our losses today. While we should guard against overreach, there is a great deal of potential that we should not ignore. The tendency may be to avoid making too many firm decisions. We may be inclined to try to take the line of least resistance. However, we should not discount our individual capacity. We can use today’s stubborn, holding power to stand our ground with quiet stability. The waning Moon’s influence will wash away any unimportant debris and clear the decks but we don’t need to be too quick to abandon our vision

2021 LUNAR INFORMATION
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.
Are you feeling shaky because you have made a bold move and have not yet seen confirmation that everything is going to work out? Or is fear holding you back? Are you afraid to act until all risk of failure has been removed?
The moment when there is no risk whatsoever will never come, so follow the urging of your Panther Spirit within and look your fear in the eye. Have you ever heard the famous line “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”? Stare down your fear, and it will retreat and make way for your courage to fill you head to toe.
Perhaps you are afraid you can’t trust the power that is rising in you, and you fear the qualities you will find within when you look deeply at why you resist the challenge before you. Every part of you, no matter how dark it may seem, has a light quality, so be bold and face it; own the light and make peace with your shadow. Spirit trusts you, so be brave and trust yourself.
In numerology, the number 44 is all about business, financial abundance, and generational building for the future and present. In the present, you are being thanked for your hard work and dedication; in the future, you will reap the full benefits of the work.
We often find ourselves working hard, but at times we can start to slack on our journey and forget the bigger picture. Number 44 reminds us to stay working hard, leading to a positive pay-out as a result.
