Disseminating Moon - As we go into the darkening phase of the disseminating moon, we get the FRUIT
of the plant's life cycle - the fruits of wisdom and experience. The disseminating moon is the waning full moon getting visibly smaller. She rises midevening and sets midmorning. She is visible from the time she rises almost until she sets. Those who are born under a disseminating moon find that life must have meaning, purpose. They enjoy sharing their ideas with others. Keywords for the Disseminating phase are: demonstration, distribution, sharing and introspection. It is now the time in a lunar cycle to further process your advancement towards your goals by looking at the results of your adjusting action taken at the Full Moon phase. During this phase you gain clarity by sharing what you've learned through awareness. Demonstrate your power of abundance by giving back to your community. Visit friends. Distribute your knowledg. SHARE. Reach out and touch someone.
As well as this being Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. it is also Thor's Day - Jupiter Day - the Day of Vision, Spiritual Insight and Expansion. There is Major magickal energies for doing spells/rites regarding Money Owed You. Maybe during all the chaos of the Thanksgiving preparation and meal you will be able to sneak off and do a rite regarding this.
Celtic Tree Month of Ruis/Elder begins -
The close of the year is nigh; we end with the Celtic month of Elder. Elder corresponds to the Ogham letter ruis (roo-ish), which allows us to examine all the things we may regret, properly view the consequences, and heal our heart from the hurt. Elder ushers in a new phase of life and reminds us of the need to let go of what no longer serves you. To release past errors and go forward with joy in your heart, light a red candle, and surround it with elderberries or a picture of an elder tree. You may wish to sip some elderberry wine or tea. Write down the things that didn't go as planned this year and what you learned from each one. Draw the elder/ruis Ogham symbol on top of the paper. Bury the paper in the earth - as the paper becomes one with the earth, your regrets will dissipate your heart will heal.
"Elder tree, berries of red,
Remove these worries from my head.
Wiser now I do remain,
I banish regret and send it away."
