FULL CANCER MOON 2020
Happy 2020 to you all!
The first full moon lunar eclipse of the decade is at 20 degrees Cancer on January 10 at 2:21 pm EST.
This eclipse is penumbral, not clearly visible in the night sky, even if you live where it is “visible.”
In the sky at the moment we have Saturn conjunct Pluto at 22 Capricorn. Their conjunction is exact on January 12, but they are at the same degree at the new Moon, so close enough to contribute to the intense Capricornian energy in polarity to the full Cancer Moon.
We are feeling our history in Cancer. We are feeling who we are, at core; uniting ego and emotional bodies. There may be a feeling of pulling our emotional socks up resolving to a year of self care, self love, calmness and letting go of past hurts. The
Capricorn Sun calls us to stand in our strength, personal authority and authenticity as individuals.
On Jan 10, Uranus, the higher octave of Mercury, goes stationary direct at 2 degrees Taurus after having been retrograde since August 11.
Uranus holds subconscious memory and while it was retrograde for the last five months, our memories around safety, security, self love and value systems may have been distilled in such a way as to be brought to our conscious mind to be remembered, processed and integrated.
For instance, long lost memories of childhood trauma may have resurfaced to be examined, understood, healed, forgiven, and released. So now, at the full moon eclipse, with Uranus resuming forward motion, we have the opportunity to be liberated from old wounding, misunderstanding, alienation, fear of lack, or neglect.
Freedom from past hurts leaves a great space. We are no longer carrying as much weight of old wounds. We can use that freed up mental and emotional space to let in what is new, wanted, and expansive.
There is an opportunity for liberation from old subconscious wounding or habits. There is the opportunity to transform and evolve the way we operate on the earth plane for our own greater good and for the good of all.
We all participate, to varying degrees, in natural, familial, societal, economics and political structures.
We have the opportunity to actually use the universal wisdom that we have been downloading through our good intentions, meditations, careful action, kindness, and warm and happy thoughts.
These things aren’t just Instagram pics or bumper stickers. The good is real. Positive evolution and expansion are real. We simply need to choose them every time.
What is the best action or thought or mantra I can take, think, repeat in This present moment?
Pluto and Saturn are a power duo in Capricorn capable of real shifts of consciousness and action and structures in the real world.
The full Cancer Moon asks us to be responsible for our own emotional body. Do we direct our emotions to a better feeling place? Do we remember that no one can make us feel a certain way? We must remember that we are responsible for what arises in our own system. The Cancer/Capricorn polarity is about responsibility. Do we respond in a way that makes us feel good about ourselves and the choices we are making in our thoughts, words, and deeds?
The Cancer full Moon is about keeping our side of the emotional street clean. We can be a power of example for others by taking a beat and responding with care as best as we are able in every situation.
For many of us this is a work in progress. So each moment we can resolve to evolve.😊
Powerful people living in powerful times. Choose to respond in a way that feels true in each situation that arises.
Happy Full Moon and Happy New Year. All the very best to you all.
