Capricorn Disseminating Moon
—April 22

Important and valuable lessons are available today. More so, if you insist on navigating old habits or mistakes in the same ways you’ve always navigated these—this isn’t helping you.

In fact, how you handle anything today is absolutely the essence of its energies—is the “objective, battle, or conflict really worth winning or pursuing?”

Internal intention is everything, always—particularly today.

Beyond your authentic intention, your inner knowing and ability to let go, release, sacrifice, surrender, and/or acquiesce is also essentially potent… if anything—something to ponder honestly.

Astrologer Dane Rudhyar transcribed that, through this degree, that the essence was “the realization that one may grow through defeat as well as, and perhaps more than, through success…”

On the matter of pondering—thinking will definitely be involved today, and perhaps not only involved, but activated… especially as the moon connects to Mercury in Taurus—it could be pondered that anything you’re willing to let go, release, or acquiesce, much less surrender, could only be followed through on if the matter of consequence isn’t practical, polite, pragmatic, or paralleled in heart-centeredness.

And this is really the heart of it—despite all the thinking…

There will be reward, either immediately or eventually, to be found within any participation in heart-centeredness.

This degree, by aspecting, as well as the disseminating phase theme of Capricorn—today’s energies are very much about negotiations, alliances, transactions, strategic planning, objectivity, strength of character, competitions, hard decisions, reputations, obligations, and uncomfortability.

On the matter of uncomfortability—the moon also connects to Pluto in conjunction, through a degree that associates with ‘seeking guidance’ and ‘contemplative vision’, and also ‘clearing up fears and doubts by stilling the mind; struggling to achieve psychological integration by working through one’s thoughts and feelings…’

As I mentioned yesterday, shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera states that, through this lunar phase, it is a good time to “do work that may be uncomfortable but that is duty-bound…”

C’est la vie.

Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.❞
——William Shakespeare
