Disseminating Moon

Sun in Leo/Moon in Aries

August 7   


With your release list as your guide, pick one item to guide you in this next activity.  Don’t worry about limiting by focusing on one thing—the Aquarian energy of the Full Moon could persuade you that you freedom means no limits. The fact is focus on one item will activate everything else on your release list.


You may find as you read your list aloud some item is more alive and connected to you than others. Let yourself get a real sense of the energy that is tied up in this item. I like to then take this event, concept, situation, whatever it is and imagine some way to link that to an opportunity to give or literally disseminate something.


As the Moon is seen as shrinking as it changes from an oval at the beginning of this phase to the half circle of the next phase the Last Quarter Moon. The Moon seems to be giving itself away, shrinking or disseminating. Disseminating is a bit like broadcasting. Something is let go, given out, and the hope is that it lands in a good place and grows. It isn’t quite like planting but more like spreading something from a place of abundance and releasing it.


We are in the Aquarius releasing cycle, and the key phrase for Aquarius is I KNOW. The Moon is in Aries, I AM.  There is a fiery energy in this pattern and it makes it easier to disseminate knowledge and information in an active way, with energy. Use this to your advantage to give of the bounty of your knowledge and personal energy. Give your attention and consciousness to honoring what you know and those things you have come to know as a result of curiosity and opening to the something new and innovative.


Aquarius is about a better world for all. You might be able to find something you know that you can share that is related to innovation, the future, the causes of young people, or the causes of equality. This is a time to come from your abundance and plant a seed for the future. This may be something you say or do or it could be financial support for a group of likeminded individuals supporting a cause based on humanitarian or egalitarian values. Remember, generosity always sets the stage for abundance.

Sun 11º Leo/Moon 11º Aquarius



For every Full Moon, the Sun and the Moon are in opposite sides of the sky, this is called an opposition in astrology. The Full Moon is reflecting the light of the Sun. This can bring ILLUMINATION that helps us see the other side of the Sun's focus. A peek into our own "dark side" can help us name and seek release of patterns, behaviors, people and things that block growth, happiness, abundance, and success.


For this cycle, the Sun is in the sign of Leo, the lion. Leo is a fixed sign in the element of fire. Key words for Leo are I will, I love, I create. The Moon is in the sign of Aquarius and it is the Moon sign that gives us our clues on what to examine for release. Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer. It is a fixed sign in the element of air and the key phrases for Aquarius are I know, I liberate.  


For the Full Moon, I like to make a RELEASE LIST. For this cycle use the Moon sign, Aquarius, for clues to what is being activated for easier release. Here are some of the things coming to mind with this Full Moon that is activating the Leo/Aquarius polarity:


I release inflexibility, rigidity, and the need for freedom at any cost.


I release dependency fears.


I release any problems with technology.


I release groups, organizations that don't support me. 


I release boredom, detachment from feelings, and impatience.


I release needless rebellion or fear of rebellion.


I release fear of being too hopeful and optimistic, or too imaginative and innovative.


I release escape into the abstract to avoid connection or emotion.


I release fear of being called or considered "weird".


I release blocks to living out my uniqueness.


I release blocks to fulfillment of the vision of a better and kinder world that honors and supports all beings.


I release blocks and obstacles to liberation for myself and others



You might want to use these as suggestions for your own release list. Take time to let your mind wander and follow trails of connection to discover particular situations and issues that arise. Since independence, rebellion, impatience with detail and boredom are in the Aquarian field, it might be a challenge to settle down and actually make the list. Do your best. Get a few things written, you can always add to it later on.


After you have made your list, read it aloud, fold it in a special way and put it in a special place. This is sharing your list with the Power of the Universe that is your beloved Friend. I encourage you to be brave and honest when making this list. This is your opportunity to free yourself of blocks and burdens. Use it and expect miracles.




This New Moon in Aquarius marks the Lunar New Year. In Chinese Astrology the zodiac is represented as 12 different animals. This year is the Year of the metal Rat. 


The year of the dog is behind us now--tell my dog that! Every year is year of the dog for this guy. Here's a wish for a very happy year of the metal rat!
