Capricorn Disseminating Moon
—May 18

Yesterday’s overly optimistic—or overly eager or overly idealistic or overly overly overly—mood, overnight, turned sober, somber, and much more realistic…

Particularly exponentiated through a lunarly square to Jupiter—newly moving in Aries—today’s Saturn-ruled moon experiences this aspecting harshly, in need of foundational repairs, as well as a potential loss of faith… but also feeling the seemingly paralyzing need to ‘fortify oneself; see the bigger picture; see eternal archetypes; and stand firm…’

It’s important, now, to look after your responsibilities—possibly even in an entirely new light.

And, further still, simultaneously, there remains a continued need to wait…

Finally, shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera suggests that this is a moon that is good “for doing work that may be uncomfortable, but that one is duty-bound to carry out to ensure protection…” and so who’s to say the type of dirty work that is needing taken care of—I suppose it would depend on what kind of character you have inherently; if you’re a responsibility avoider—responsibilities are likely piling up all around you…

So… not exactly the happiest or most delightful of moods, today—but you’ll have that… things still need to get done—especially if you’re wanting anything to change.

And a step backward, after making a wrong turn, is a step in the right direction.❞
——Kurt Vonnegut
