The Full Moon brings to the surface our instinctual, emotional truth…like sea life drawn to the surface of the water by lunar light.
Look for the fruition of seeds planted 6 months ago on the CANCER New Moon. What were you dreaming of, or planning for then? What is your harvest looking like now?
Refresh your memory, here’s the last New Moon CANCER Post…
Cancer cares. The ultimate in compassionate, caring Cancer is embodied in His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. Self-care ladies!
“It is lack of love for ourselves that inhibits our compassion toward others. If we make friends with ourselves, then there is no obstacle to opening our hearts and minds to others:
This Moon should help you define what’s really important to you. Been struggling with decisions? Just think about what really captures your heart and there’s your answer. First thought best thought. Don’t try to talk yourself down.
Feelings are central to this Moon. Notice what tips your sensitivity meter, especially around areas that Cancer rules..home, family, food, security…
Currently, we seem to be hitting a bell curve in terms of food habits, especially vegan/vegetarian and generally healthy wholesome foods. Thanks to social media we’re realizing we’ve been conned by marketing and now have enough information to make our own choices for the health of ourselves and our loved ones. There’s a new level of awareness that translates to concern for animals suffering.
What care factor is highlighted for you at the moment?
DRAWN & QUARTERED
I’m not going to lie, there’s a lot of tension tied into this full Moon. With the shock of the new Uranus in Aries and enthusiastic Jupiter in Libra the meat in the sandwich, Pluto muscles into a conjunction with the Sun in Capricorn forming ‘a grand square’.
In short, balance home and family with your place in the world. That place in the world, your duty to this life will be demanding attention.
Jupiter will push your relationship buttons and Uranus will be whipping you to break free. The ‘grand square’ is a bit like feeling drawn and quartered.
THE GOOD NEWS
There’s an easy flow from the Cancer Moon to healing Chiron and a compassionate Mars in watery Pisces. Lean into what action you can take to heal yourself. Be kind to yourself. Choose your reality by choosing to open up your perception to the moment (mindfulness) rather than play old tapes that result in repetition. Use your sensitivity to connect beyond your everyday mundane logistics and touch base with your higher potential as well with others you come into contact with. No judgment, just an open mind with positive expectation. Let me know how it goes.
This month’s Sun in Capricorn opposite Moon in Cancer, for me has highlighted the relationship between big industry and the basics of human rights and family.
Specifically the clothing industry and the animal products food industry. Those at the top have a power they are hoarding and abusing while those at the bottom are crushed, living as slaves. Their suffering is out of proportion to the value we place on their product ie a $5 top at a fast fashion chain or a life for a piece of steak on our plate. Our power to make a difference is cumulative and much of it lies in simple spending power. I choose to make the difference I can make. Home and business need balance, not only in our own lives but for our global family, for the powerless and the voiceless.
With Love & Care,
