CANCER FULL MOON 2022
The first full moon of 2022 is at 12:48 EST on 17 January at 27 degrees Cancer.
The powerful Cardinal Cancer (Moon) Capricorn (Sun) axis likes to begin things.
Begin or begin again.
We have Mercury newly retrograde at 9 degrees Aquarius. We are going to visit with our subconscious, with our memories, with our old journals and vision boards to see what needs to be seen as new.
The person who thought those thoughts and dreamed those dreams and glued those vision boards is the same one looking at them today.
I often address the me in my past and need to address that future me, too.
I appreciate the me who has provided for me and cared for me. I talk to that me and thank that me.
This is fitting, now, as Venus – the valuer, the lover, the friend, the one who relates, the one that puts together previously unrelated pieces…
is retrograde at 13 Capricorn.
As Capricorn rules time, and Venus is retrograde, it is a perfect moment, at this full Moon, to time travel.
We can imagine the us who is now visiting a friend when we were both 15 or 26.
We can cry or laugh again. We can sit in a different chair in the restaurant – we can view the scene from a now perspective. We can do it as a daydream if the word meditation is too ponderous.
We can do the same adventure into the future and imagine where we want to lounge, or dance or paint or have dinner.
Who is there? How does it smell? What are we wearing? Is it hot? Is there shade? Do You feel relaxed? Excited?
Time travel at this full Moon is encouraged and can be encouraging.
There is a watery tint with this axis. Capricorn has a serpent’s tail as it is well acquainted with the depths of human, spiritual and timely experience.
We can find our way to other times through evocative triggers: songs, poems, tv shows, memories and wishes.
Cancer is ruled by the Moon. The Crab is as happy on the ocean floor as it is scampering around the beach under the moonlight.
We intuitively feel our place on the earth plane. At this full Moon we can feel into the time that will best inform us of who we are, what we want and how we would like to proceed.
Crabs don’t move in a straight line. The go back and forth. They go side to side. They scoot behind a rock to get a safer, hidden perspective.
And speaking of hidden/revelatory views, the full Moon is opposing Pluto conjunct the Sun in Capricorn.
We can reach into the power and personal authority that is our birth right, the power that is as close as our own heart. We can tune in, through the heart, the mind , the intuition, and the power of the blood that courses through the veins, pulled by the moon. We can tune in to our own vibration, our own blueprint for who and what a d how we want to be, do, interact and have in this life.
We hold the pearl in the palm of our hand that glows just for us. It has insight just for us, tailor-made just for us as a touchstone, signpost, and guide.
The full Moon illuminates, it magnetizes. It helps us to recognize, to intuit, to elaborate, the way to the within and to the without are made more clear.
May the full Cancer Moon bring the energy to the true Home inside, where the hearth fire is always warm, -always welcoming, always comforting.
