Disseminating Moon Phase: communicate, share
Moon in Scorpio/Sagittarius 7:55 pm ET/11:5 pm UT
Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Chinnamasta, Goddess Who Expands the Mind
Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East, God of Electromagnetic Fields
Skill: make adjustments or improvise; immerse in the present moment; imagine possibilities and believe in them
True Alignments: recovery, creating a storehouse of energy by resting and letting Spirit direct hings, independence, patience and pacing, expressing talents, connecting with nature, open to messages, reflecting, daydreaming, revitalizing or renewing, a new image, allowing room for things to change
Catalysts for Change: personal ambition that is so exaggerated that it does not care about others, distractions and attention deficit, forcing things before their time, lack of support, dependence, spending too much energy on "cold" situations, moody, off track, not expressing talents, hopelessness, self pity
Sabian Symbols for the Solar-Lunar Month and Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery" (transcending worries, chaos, or difficulties)
The Full Moon phase has passed and the Moon will move out of Scorpio later in the day. This eases up the intensity of our "magic carpet ride." We now begin the first Disseminating Moon phase for this year.
Disseminating Moon phase is the most "communicative" time of the lunar cycle. Following the natural cycles of the Earth, Moon, and Sun, it is the time when we share our thoughts, ideas, and feelings with others so that Spirit can send us messages and information via the information/Source field. The input, feedback, or suggestions that others provide helps us empower our hopes, wishes, dreams, projects, ideas, and activities.
The information or messages come from all kinds of things, not just from people. Nature, animal sightings, synchronicities, background "noise," overheard snippets of strangers' conversations, memes, unusual communications -- just about anything -- can convey information that gives clues or validation.
Wise owls immerse in the present moment and receive.
The "speed" of the energy changes today with the Sun disseminating the Sabian symbol energetic of "a sleigh without snow." Sometimes things come to a complete stop. This is ok; in fact, it is a good thing to have just two days before Mercury stations retrograde. We have time to reflect on the status of things before Mercury re-works them.
The Earth facilitates this with its dissemination of the Sabian symbol of "the Moon across a lake." Emotions run toward the placid. This is a nice relief.
View any "stops" or "pauses" as the Universe improvising situations. The symbol of the "sleigh without snow" is clear in its mission of rectifying timing. If we allow space for a higher power to adjust things, we will save ourselves a great deal of headaches and frustration. Letting go of the reins a little is a good idea today.
When you follow the natural cycles of time, you come to realize that the Moon phases follow a pattern of where we are active one phase and Spirit is active the next. For example, at the New Moon we are active in setting intentions and putting things in motion. The next Moon phase, the Crescent phase, is when we step back and persevere as Spirit guides us through challenges with those things. At the First Quarter phase, we step out and take action. At Gibbous phase, we step back again, trusting that Spirit is empowering what we are doing. It is like in-breaths and out-breaths of a collaboration with the Universe.
So at Disseminating Phase, the current Moon phase, it is the Universe's turn. At the next phase, Third Quarter phase, we will take action to complete things and keep the ball rolling. Balsamic phase then follows, and higher forces mystically close out the month.
This is The Way.
The main "threads" woven onto our carpet ride today are:
1- MORE THAN WE CAN HOLD - Venus starts the day at the degree of "a man possessed of more gifts than he can hold." This energetic entered yesterday. It produces overwhelm. We can start to feel that we cannot "process" anything more. The Wisdom Goddess Chinnamasta is expanding (blowing) our minds all month long, so she uses this to help us make great strides in consciousness. Turn things over to her if overwhelm seeps in. Just stop your "sleigh" and she will refuel it -- and it will be better. Try it and see. ("See" the Moon shining across a lake for a reference.)
2- ADJUST OR RE-DO - Sometimes what becomes evident during Disseminating Moon phases is that we need to adjust, re-think, or re-do things. Remembering that the energetics are adjusting the timing and the unfolding of things will help, keeping us from trying to force them forward.
3- IMAGINATION - At 2:42 pm ET/6:42 pm UT, Venus will move to the degree of "through imagination, a lost opportunity is regained." This energy brings renewed hope, recovery, and second chances. The key is to BELIEVE in what is possible. What do you want to be possible? Imagine it.
We have three skills to practice today: make adjustments or improvise; immerse in the present moment; imagine possibilities and believe in them. We can handle that. The rest is taken care of courtesy of the Disseminating Moon phase and the forces of Spirit.
See you tomorrow, everyone.
