The energetics of the Full Moon phase have ended, and we now enter the Disseminating phase of the Moon. Disseminating Moon phase is characterized by information, feedback, messages, and communication. In the natural cycle of time, the next four days are when the universe delivers guidance through whatever means possible, oftentimes through what is in the background.
Since Mercury is still retrograde, requiring more effort or patience with communications, this Disseminating Moon will be working harder to help us get the message. But, a certain "gem" of energy assuages this because the Earth is located at the degree of "a crystal gazer." This energetic makes things crystal clear and also crystallizes plans and ideas. It clears a path.
Other planets are helping. Mercury itself is located at the degree of "a man watching his ideals taking concrete form before his inner vision." Venus moves once again to "after a heavy storm, a rainbow" (or maybe we could call it "after a super-blood-harvest moon, the spectrum of the future becomes clear"). The Black Moon moves to "a man teaching the true inner knowledge of the new world to his students." And Mars moves to "a man becoming aware of nature spirits and normally unseen spiritual energies."
So today, the universe conspires to help us see something very, very clearly, despite Mercury's retrograde. What have we not wanted to see? Where do we see things going? Where will something lead? What do you see that others are missing? What do you have to share? What do you have to say? What is whispering to you?
Further, the other planets are contributing. Today Jupiter moves to the familiar degree of "a bride with her veil snatched away." Jupiter will discharge this energy through Tuesday, October 6. Since April, a certain female US Presidential candidate from the Democratic faction has not fared well when this degree has been activated. Each time a planet hits it, more that has been hidden comes out. Jupiter is known to deliver a final blow -- it's The Closer -- so this could be the end of that dynasty. Regardless, Jupiter will reveal much about true intentions and levels of commitment in our personal worlds and in the world as a whole over the next few days.
The energy and the times remain complicated and historic. Saturn moves to the degree of "the ocean covered with whitecaps." This always stirs or whips things up. The wisdom of the Sabians tells us to dive under anything that begins to churn. This will be in effect until October 12. I think diving under will be very important because the Mahavidyas are strongly reinforcing this to me.
Finally, the active Sun is discharging the energy of "three old masters hanging in a special room in an art gallery." This energy brings balance, form, and wisdom. The Mahavidya (Wisdom Goddess, aspect of Gaia Sophia) Shodashi is known for these three things. Shodashi leads the team of Wisdom Goddesses this month, but today she is particularly interested in bringing us into better form and alignment with our highest potential. This may require us to take a different course or path, one that opens today.
That's a lot for today, but all divinely-directed. All that we need to do is be attentive and brave enough to see and hear what is crystal clear today.
