Om Matrayai Namaha

Sun:  29 Taurus
Moon: 25 Aries, 334 degrees from Sun, Balsamic
Inner Moon: transition between luteal and menstruation

Moon Vibes:

The mystic, deeply sensitive to psychic reality, energetic information, connection with disembodied energy like spirits. Ultra-creative, dream-like visionary with sharp mental acuity. Ethereal quality with little to no ego attachment. This phase relates with Samhain. In tantra yoga, this suryachara, ascending course of Sun, ascending out-breath moving upward from soft palette to third-eye. Relates with last quarter of day time and the element is air. In the hero’s journey, this is where we are sharing and offering the gifts and lessons learned. Preparation phase for the next call to adventure at new Moon.

Moon in Aries:

Moon in headstrong Aries where are impulsive and feel motivated for action. Great physical fitness day. Making a quick 90° to both Pluto and Jupiter today, and Saturn by morning. We are feeling the energy of those other planets as irritation. This irritation can be the friction needed to shift things in your life.

Astrology info to consider:

Last day of Taurus season indulgence in all these yummy fruits of earthly pleasure. Sun moving into Gemini where we get into our most magical states of being. Mars and Ceres in Universally Loving Pisces, our inner warrior fight for the rights of all sentient beings. All beings have a fight to clean water, nutritional support and safe places to live. Collective inner masculine is concerned with this now.

Venus, Jupiter, Pluto all retrograde and Mercury shadow phase starts June 2 in Cancer.

Retrograde takes us inside patterns of energy the planet retrograding represents. We reflect deeply and the outer world shows us our inner pattern. exactly. If we choose different, the pattern begins to shift. Traumatic/Ecstatic events are the biggest pattern shifts.

Nutrition suggestion:

This phase of the Moon is a detox phase. Do you even have an appetite right now? It is likely that your body is longing for reducing and cleansing. Liquids, juiced veggies, smoothies, and lots of water are in season during disseminating Moon. Juiced veggies are very cooling and detoxifying. Have you tried celery juice on an empty stomach?


Disseminating moon in Aries tonight, under this moon phase we are integrating the wisdom received during this lunar cycle.  What will you do with the wisdom you’ve gained?  The Aries moon can bring the spark of bravery to share your wisdom with others. Tonight take time to reflect on the big picture of what you’ve been orbiting around this past month and acknowledge your experiences as teachers.

  • Create sacred space by lighting a candle on your altar, call in the fierce and brave energy of Aries and call on your spirit guides to support you here.
  • Practice candle gazing for 5 minutes or so, fixing your gaze on the flame, imagine the flame incinerating all mental chatter, leaving you with clarity and peace of mind.
  • In your journal reflect on the most impactful moments and/or experiences of this lunar cycle so far (started on April 22nd), out of all this event can you notice a common thread?  What have you been learning this month? And how does that relate to the intentions you set for this lunar cycle on the New Moon?
  • Becoming clear on the wisdom you are integrating now and decide how you can share this wisdom, you might want to share publicly or with a close friend.  Define the intention behind your sharing. Often it can be intimidating to share what feels so personal to us but when we share our stories we invite others to do the same. When we show our scars we remind others that healing is possible.
  • Take one action toward sharing a personal story or lesson of growth and gained wisdom.
  • Conclude in gratitude


Are you a hypnogogia or hynopomia type of person? Hypnogogia happens as you start to fall asleep. You’ll notice this as you relax your body while keeping awareness on the dark space behind your eyelids and between your breaths. People who wake up fast typically are better at noticing hypnogogia. Yea… pay attention to this tonight.

Hypnopomia occurs during the phase of waking up. People who wake up slow are usually better at noticing this phase of sleep. When I linger between being asleep and almost waking up, the hypnopomia state is active and images are vivid. Is this a dream? {Reality Check!} Both of these phases are great to enter a lucid state of awareness.

Are you familiar with either of these states? Which one are you most familiar? Practice keeping awareness tonight and tomorrow morning upon waking. Tell me about your experience.

Watch this video about dreaming.
