Cancer Full Moon – January 1-2, 2018
Are you ready for your close-up? The Full Moon forms at 11 degrees 37 minutes Cancer at 6:24 pm PST on January 1, and at 2:24 am GMT on January 2, 2018. Can you feel the weight of this moment? Cancer is Cardinal water and she’s all about the feeling. If it doesn’t feel right – it can’t be right. This moon gives you full permission and encouragement to feel it through and work it out. Tonight the Moon is like your fairy godmother. “Bibbity bobbity boo!” She got you a ticket to the Galactic Ball. And you look stunning!!! What you do with that golden opportunity is up to you. Sun, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn standing on the other side of the ballroom and they’re looking super-serious. They’re watching and tapping their feet, waiting for you to get on with it. Capricorn is all business all the time, you know. Fear not! This Moon is used to putting up with Capricorn. Tonight she surrounds you with possibility, courage, truth, and love.
It’s a SuperMoon. She’s at her closest approach to Earth tonight. There’s been a lot of planetary action recently. Jupiter moved into Scorpio in October. Saturn came home to Capricorn, his sign of rulership on December 20, after a 29 year absence. Tomorrow, Uranus, who’s been in Aries since 2011, (Remember Fukushima? That happened the day he arrived in Aries.), will station direct at 25 degrees Aries (Cardinal fire) and begin his last few laps in that sign as he speeds toward Taurus for a 7 year stint in Fixed earth. The impetus for forward movement from this bringer of change and revolution will blow open a major portal as he makes his final run for Taurus. He won’t be back in Aries for another 86ish years. Time to integrate the Uranian crash course in Radical Individuation that’s been going on for the last 7 years. As of January 2nd, all planets will be moving direct. And as of January 3rd, the North and South Nodes will also be direct. There will be no planets retrograde from January 2 to March 8. There will, however, be major retrogrades of Venus and Mars in fixed signs this year along with the usual backing and forthing of the other planets.
So take advantage of this time!!! It will be impossible to ignore the momentum and pull of the gateway that opens tonight. To do so will be painful. You don’t want to suffer like that! The month of January begins with the Full Moon in Cancer and ends with a Full Moon total lunar Eclipse on the Nodes at 12 degrees Leo/Aquarius. How much encouragement do you need? This month is the time to prepare for lift-off. Seriously.
With Saturn having just finished his transit of truth-seeking Sagittarius, there is no room in this process for dishonesty. Mars and Jupiter are set to conjunct in Scorpio while sextiling the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn on January 6th. Scorpio and Capricorn are well known for their direct no-nonsense parsing of the truth. This aspect requires rigorous self-appraisal and honesty. Do not think that you can fool these two signs. They may act as if they don’t notice or don’t care, but your intentions and actions are duly noted and filed for future reference. These guys are hardcore and they WILL stand in your way if YOU do not stand in your truth.
Capricorn is Mastery of the Earth element and represents physical manifestation of earthly desire. It is a feminine sign as is Cancer, which represents Mastery of the Water element, the manifestation of emotions and feelings. This Full Moon focuses our attention on this polarity. Can we manifest on the physical plane what we do not love/ believe in/desire with our whole being? I don’t think that’s going to work – Do you? Use the Cancer Full Moon to examine this question. Be clear. Half-truths are exactly that.
You might have to perform an emotional rescue mission on yourself in order to achieve resonance with your personal truth and to proceed to your own manifest destiny. That’s how serious this time is. Don’t space out. You know what to do. You feel it. Don’t try to talk yourself out of the truth of who and what you are, where you want to go, and most of all, who you desire to BE.
The Moon is with you tonight. Of course, she’s with us every night… But tonight, the Full Moon has all her magic moon-dust safely tucked in her pocket – just waiting to shower you with inspiration, love, and courage as you open up and feel the truth of you, as you respond to your deep desire to take action, and as you do what is necessary. Feel it. Feel it all. The revelation and preparation that you do now will propel you forward for next five years – at least. Don’t be afraid. Things are changing fast. Be the change. The world awaits you. Happy 2018 to one and all.
