This is a whopper of a Full Moon. There is no way I can keep this short and I still won’t cover it all.
Full Moons tend to increase emotionality while the Moon and Sun are in perfect polarity and the tides are pulled to extremes. The Moon is in it’s home in the sign of Cancer and parent/child and home/family dynamics are highlighted. The balance between home (Cancer) and work (Capricorn) is up for examination.
With this 1st Full Moon of 2017, We have a powerful Cardinal Grand Cross with Jupiter-Pluto-Uranus-Eris-Haumea at the angles.
In our personal charts, any 20-24 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) will be extra activated and sensitivity is heightened across the board.
If we place ourselves in the middle of the 4 corners of this Grand Square, we become the center point of a pyramid from the Hawks’s View (the observer’s perch) and we can harness these frequencies for greater alignment, clarity and empowerment. it will take conscious awareness to do this. The square is a stepping stone for us to utilize based on gained wisdom from past challenges… it invites us to the next level of growth and manifestation.
There is an inherent rebelliousness and restlessness that comes with this kind of intense cosmic sky. With the Sun conjoining Pluto in the sign of Capricorn… governments, leaders, authority figures, teachers and foundations are being challenged by the Uranus/Eris revolutionary energy in Aries. Individual rights are front and center.
Cancer is highly sensitive and some of us will feel like we need to protect ourselves from the harshness and elevated drama in our world. In which case, staying close to home and plugging into the security of loved ones and family may bring the comfort we are craving. This call to security can feel at odds with a strong need for independence and freedom. Some of us will feel conflicted and through the tension, we can discover truths about our emotional needs.
After having said that, let me also state that all of this cardinal energy clears the way for motivation so we can take decisive action.The 22nd degree of Cancer is a power/master degree that opens our feeling nature to receive intuitive guidance. Magic can happen from here as it is a time of fruition.
Mercury (intellect and mental patterns) now steps back into Capricorn and cautionary thinking and a dose of patience to plan and choose wisely (rather than taking risks), is recommended right now. This conservative tone will still need us to stay openminded to the unexpected. The Sun is in Saturn’s sign and focusing on a clear goal can find extra potency for manifestation with determination.
Venus is conjoining Neptune in Pisces as well. Hearts are open and highly sensitive and our desire for art, music and spiritual connection can connect to the limitless field like never before. Chiron’s dance with Saturn continues to show us which structures are broken. The Sun’s friction with Eris can reveal repressed anger and rage and if id does, choose a healthy outlet like athletics. Take 3 deep breaths before reacting to anything and let other’s be.
Like I said at the beginning of this… there is more, but this is enough!
May we all find the gifts within this Full Moon as it illuminates our World.
