Disseminating Moon Phase: communicate, share

Moon in Gemini

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Shodashi, Goddess Who Aligns With the Highest and Best

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Kathe, God of the South

Skill: create balance

True Alignments:  embracing something new, piercing through the veil, bringing something to life or making it real, overcoming conditions, agelessness, second chances, endurance, bursting on the scene

Catalysts for Change:  coming apart or breaking, emotional tumult, overanalyzing, worn out or outworn, refusal without consideration, deception, derision, denial, arrested development, perfectionistic

Today is the equinox, the time when the day and night are equal length.  Energy comes into BALANCE.

Balance is further indicated with the Sun moving out of Virgo and into Libra, the sign that rules balance.  The Sun discharges an energetic that has been active lately, "a butterfly preserved and made perfect with a dart through it."  Libra energy does lean toward perfectionism, but the primary themes of this degree are preservation and penetrating insight.  What do we want to "save" or "freeze in time" today?  What veil is pierced?

Mercury begins its first full day of forward movement after stationing direct yesterday.  During its retrograde, Mercury sought to re-work things to make them better.  This includes our ideas, perceptions, mindset, attitude, outlook, beliefs, comprehension, and projects.  What is the state of any of those things now?  Did reworking and revising occur?  Is the perspective different now?

Mercury is breaking free and breaking barriers as it discharges the energetic of "children crowd around an orangutan cage at a zoo."  Things that have been CONFINED, CORDONED OFF, CAGED, OR CONTAINEDare shown today so that they can be released (set free).  For most, barriers come down; for others, barriers go up.  This energy also brings fascination and wonder, which inspires creativity.

EMBRACING THE NEW OR WHAT IS EMERGING (particularly anything that came up or was re-worked during Mercury's retrograde) is featured with the Earth discharging the first degree of Aries (the first degree of the zodiac) with "a woman has risen out of the ocean and a seal is embracing her."  This always refers to new things and beginnings; in fact, it is the BEST energetic of the 360 degrees to start something new or do something new with something existent.  The "seal" teaches the "woman" (mermaid?) that one can exist on both land and sea (the meeting or linking of physicality and emotionality).

LINKING people, places, and things comes also with Mars discharging "an old bridge over a beautiful stream in constant use." Traversing emotional states can accompany this energetic.  The description of "constant use" of the bridge indicates high levels of activity - mental, physical, or emotional.  A good deal of emotional and cognitive processing occurs with this energetic.  Enhancing the effect is the Moon opposing Mars at 11:52 pm ET/3:52 am UT.  This particular dynamic brings SECOND CHANCES and is in effect all day.

TRANSITIONING AND ADJUSTING continues with Jupiter continuing to discharge "the dawn of a new day reveals everything changed," and Saturn continuing to discharge "a flag that turns into an eagle that crows."

A CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT OR A CROWN OF WISDOM is bestowed courtesy of Venus discharging the last degree of Libra: "three mounds of knowledge on a philosopher's head."  This energetic makes tangible what has been intangible.  It brings thought to concrete manifestation.  How wonderful.

The motto today is "all things in balance."  We strive for this as we are "looking out and beyond the shadows," the theme for this solar-lunar month.  Disseminating Moon Phase and the first day of Mercury direct are the perfect combination of energetics to share and communicate feelings, thoughts, ideas, projects, and insight.  This enables the "information field" or "field of consciousness" to provide feedback with what is on our minds.  During Disseminating Moon phase, we want to take what is useful and leave the rest.  Signs and synchronicities are heightened during Disseminating Moon phase because the phase is about communication.

Butterflies, mermaids, philosophers, and orangutans...oh my!  We have a little bit of a lot of things today.  We endeavor for all things in balance.

Note:  This strange video of a New Jersey turnpike area AM radio station (1630) apparently transmitting on Tuesday morning a repeating message of "Trump will go 26th" and/or "Trump April 26th" surfaced yesterday.  Is it real or a hoax?  The number 1630 equals 10, which is "destruction" in Mayan numerology.  I have checked both presidential candidates' charts for Monday, September 26th, which is also the day of the debate.

Both candidates have Jupiter aspects in effect that day (Clinton: Sun and Jupiter sextile natal Jupiter; Trump: Sun and Jupiter conjunct natal Neptune).  De rigor astrology discusses only the expansiveness and luck that comes with Jupiter.  The well-kept secret is that Jupiter aspects are very often in effect when someone dies.  I don't like secrets.

The Sun and Jupiter will make their once a year (on average) conjunction on September 26th.

Pluto, Ruler of the Underworld, stations direct on September 26th.

Venus opposes the Chiron Point (infliction of wounds, process of healing) on September 26th.

Other significant astrological aspects are in effect on September 26th.

A false flag that prevents the debate or prevents an election because the candidates were victims of a terror attack would be an option for the crumbling system that is trying to create order out of chaos.  This radio transmission in New Jersey, if real, may have been the required "revelation" prior to the attack (ritual).  I am curious if this same radio station can be heard at NYU, where the debate will be held.  This is all speculation, but we need to be prepared for anything.  The whole thing may be a hoax or it may be Illuminati hijinks.  I have highlighted September 25/26 for a few months now.  Still, let's hold peace and goodwill.
