Aquarius/Pisces Disseminating Moon
—June 18

Does anyone else feel as though something somewhat major, or heavy, or even inherent is fading out, and essentially ending… and something entirely new and foreign and unknown is emerging, just on the peripheral—it’s there—it’s right there!!!—but not just yet…

Anyone else feeling this!?

It feels almost as though it’s a dream…

It’s particularly lunarly—as in most fundamentally focused upon personal needs, routines, and preferences… the landscape is shifting.

As the moon moves into Pisces, into the disseminating phase, and then into a last quarter Piscean moon on Monday, this fading-and-facing influence will only become stronger…

Ultimately, we’re working toward a new moon in Cancer on June 28th, a new moon that occurs within a degree associated with what astrologer Dane Rudhyar described as learning processes—and learning curves, indeed, are in the celestial weather through this third quarter of 2022.

However, as the moon turns balsamic, and moves into Aries, and then into Taurus, into Gemini, and finally Cancer, before turning new, there is a more sentimental turned nostalgic tone, as if to celestially suggest a period of grieving for No Longer, to allow an emotional spacing for Not Yet… as the Cancer new moon suggests, as shamanic astrologer Raven Kaldera states, is “a good time for those who need a rite of passage to plan or carry that out…”

Today’s moon shifts midday—depending upon where you are in the world—from Aquarius to Pisces, though while the moon remains moving through the latter degrees of Aquarius, squaring Venus and finally exacting the building application to Saturn by conjunction, it’s not to be understated in any regard that particular (im)balances, distortions, and challenges have to potential to percolate…

Interestingly, these degrees are associated with the ‘catalyzing and unfolding of a mystery; sequential emergences of different faculties of the personality according to natural rhythms; finding the key that awakens one from muddled unconsciousness to awakened comprehension; pulling oneself together and escaping a morally confused situation; and urging others to evolve…’ and ‘staying cool and composed when confronted with a dire problem.’

Indeed, “performing necessary checks and balances to ensure the smooth running of our lives is part of the everyday maintenance… figuring out any malfunctions so that life can proceed in a smoother, more efficient manner will help keep everything running smoothly…” and whatever responses you have should be pure.

Nostalgia is an illness for those who haven’t realized that today is tomorrow’s nostalgia.❞
