Disseminating Moon Phase: share

Moon in Capricorn

Ruling Mahavidya: Chinnamasta and Kali

Skill: remember that you are not your emotions

Negative Imprint: projecting emotions onto others

Positive Imprint: handling our own emotional storms

Emotional storms, outbursts, and breaks tend to result from today's energy, as things are in need of release.  Our emotions may come upon us abruptly and the tendency is to feel out of control.  But cool heads can prevail to keep things in moderation.  If something is welling up inside of you, take steps to move those emotions through your body.  Tension and anxiety build with the astrological energies that are in effect today.  We are mindful of this and recognize if emotional waves begin to build.  If a storm is swirling inside of you, don't project it onto others.  Deal with the emotions.  What is the truth, the heart, of what you feel?  Is there something that you need to do or say?

A sub-theme of this energy involves feeling like the best is over and nothing will ever be as good as it was (at some individually designated time in the past). We may feel like something has been forever lost to us.  In fact, the energy continues to support bringing back elements of the past that were very happy or invigorating.  A re-enchantment can take place.

Since we are in the Disseminating phase of the Moon, sharing, expressing, and communicating helps us keep us flowing according to natural cycles.  This energy is impulsive, with things tending to break and spill out, so try to confine your sharing to people you trust.

Venus is still in tight conjunction with Chiron, bringing tendencies to self-sabotage and self-criticize.  Negative thoughts and opinions are exaggerated while we dismiss the overwhelmingly positive majority opinion.  Try to keep things in perspective.

There is only so much we are ever in control of, but especially today.  The sooner we recognize this, the easier the day will go.  As emotions storm, we remain firmly grounded with our planet and in awe of the show.
