Happy New Year to one and all! Hope you are enjoying the new beginning in your life. Have you finally let the fears behind? Have you grabbed your pen, your paintbrush, your sketchbook to stir up the vision that you choose to create? It is now time. Yes, now!! Not yesterday or tomorrow. Life is quickly going by, the energy is intense and will get more so as the year progresses; so do it now. Did you start anything while Mercury was retrograde at the New Moon in Capricorn? You may have to reevaluate and revise as it just went direct Sunday, January 8, 2017. But it can also be the harvest time for some. Let’s take a look at a few worldly things and then I will talk on the Full Moon.
From Sputnik News: “A highly-anticipated declassified US intelligence report, aimed to prove that Russia supported Donald Trump, has turned out to be a huge embarrassment. The annex that contained factual material that was thought to provide evidence of RT influencing the American public was compiled in December 2012, right after the reelection of Barack Obama.” Yes, that is very true. I just read an article about how the future is being shaped right now in ways that would blow you away in a mind-altering way. What am I saying? Are you ready to deal with cyborgs? On another note it looks like Mr. Trump wishes to go all out about autism in children. That is the best news yet. Don’t worry you can go back to your phones. Never mind. Snow in Venice. Canals are frozen. Antarctica has a huge chunk of ice ready to let go. Did you hear about any of this? And one more thing- states are beginning to reject Common Core education. Hopefully the states that have not even considered doing so will wake up already. Are you paying attention at all or are you just stuck in media speak? Remember if you do not learn to think for yourself then where will it take you? You haven’t seen anything yet. And since today is another 111 portal, some may be surprised at the opening that arrives in the next 7 days. I refer to those who have been paying attention and working on themselves energetically. Enough said.
Full Moon in Cancer visits us on January 12, 2017 at 6:33 am EST; 3:33am PST and 11:33am GMT in 22 degrees 25’. The Sun is in Capricorn at the same degree. Capricorn is about the outside world. And Full Moon in Cancer is about the inner workings of the emotions. Are you feeling the energy building as the Full Moon approaches? It is getting intense now and emotionally volatile. It could go lots of different ways due to the presence of the Grand Square with Jupiter in Libra opposition Uranus in Aries/Eris (goddess of discord) which squares the Full Moon in Cancer and Sun in Capricorn. Are you feeling insecure at this time due to Pluto in Capricorn being involved also since it is conjunct the Sun? Cooperation and patience will be needed with this aspect. Pluto is opposite the Full Moon and it wants to transform it. This Full Moon is saying to you even if you are feeling insecure you need to find your independence. Yes, you read that right. Where will this Grand Square take you? How nice to have the lovely Uranus /Eris couple sitting in your home at this time. Maybe just lock them away somewhere. Just joking since I am sure they would not like that and would stir the pot even more since Uranus is about the unexpected and Eris loves the discord.
This is a time as with all Full Moons that is telling you that others may be a mirror to help you learn about your own behavior which helps with personal growth. Something may emerge which may call for compromise between partners. Along with this you may be emotionally sensitive.
At last you can feel instead of thinking. How wonderful is that? No thinking now. It is time to really go deep within and feel the inner being that is you. What does that heart of yours tell you? Do you go with the feelings that come to you and may feel overwhelming at times or will you allow the outer expanses of your daily living to overtake the feeling? You tell me what you choose. I say let the emotions rise; let the feelings come about and see what occurs.
This Full Moon may take you back to your childhood in regards to actions by parents, siblings and/or children involved. Do make sure you stay in balance if something occurs in your home or other setting that triggers a past event in your life from childhood or even past life memories.
In the meantime Mars (passion and drive) and Chiron (wounds) are both in Pisces trining the Full Moon in Cancer. Exciting it is. So if you are looking for the final release on those past patterns, fears and you name it (all those things that have been hanging on and I have talked about for months) then you just might have the gumption to take one final push and say bye to them. What a relief that will be if you can get on board and do it now. Whew. And if crying is part of the process just allow the tears to flow so the healing can take place.
This is an especially good time for looking at relationships and see if they are in balance. If not, then what actually may be causing it to have any disharmonious factors? Are your intentions and their intentions on the same page and how do they play into the whole energy pattern? Now is the time to really dig within and come up with a solution. Along with the Full Moon effect going on then there is Venus conjunct Neptune. This brings about a romantic essence to this moon energy. It may make you a bit dreamy about your relationship or may sweep you off your feet. It is highly intimate. Of course with everything else going on you may just pull back totally and not get involved right at this time. Will it be beautiful or just not going to be a part of your life anymore?
Since Jupiter in Libra is opposite Uranus in Aries you may find yourself wanting to have a good time and something comes into the mix to shift it. Are you rebelling now against something so that you can keep on doing what you want? It can open it all up to success if you allow it. Is there something unexpected that comes up and throws it all out the door? How will you react? Anyone who is more Uranian may find that you get major inspiration. On the other hand,
Saturn the taskmaster in Sagittarius helps steady the whole dynamic through respect and having discipline. But since Saturn is inconjunct the Full Moon you may feel a bit uncomfortable with the whole partnership angle even though Jupiter/Uranus is saying what issue. Just do it. Before I take a look at the Saturn influence in your life right now here are some tidbits about the Full Moon for the signs and rising signs:
Aries- In your 4th house of foundations– Engage in practical negotiations. Balance your career with your family and home and things will be ok.
Taurus- In your 3rd house of communication- Major changes may be afoot. Look at what improvements need to be made.
Gemini- In your 2nd house of money and resources-What are you willing to let go and transform?
Cancer- In your own sign/ first house of self tells you that you can put your needs to the forefront and also look at how you relate to others. Take care of you!!!
Leo- In your 12th house of Secrets the Full Moon says no matter what you say others are the mirrors of your soul. You may need to make changes that favor your well-being.
Virgo- In your 11th house of Friends and Community says that you may want to ask others to help you in your quest and stop doing it all yourself. You are still the artist.
Libra- In your 10th house of Career and make yourself visible to those important in your life. You do deserve all that comes to you so be open to it. Watch any power struggles.
Scorpio- In your 9th house of Higher Truth says to you that stop being insecure if you do not have the credentials you need. Some of your beliefs may truly shift. Dramatic time.
Sagittarius- In your 8th house of Deep Sharing-Create a healthy balance in your financial life. Throw out what you no longer need. Transform something in your life.
Capricorn- In your 7th house of Partnerships- Drama may show up. Release that which no longer works and then you can move into a relationship that does. Take your time.
Aquarius- In your 6th House of Work and Health- Time to address any work or health issues. You do gain emotional security from a regular routine.
Pisces- In your 5th House of Love and Creativity- Something may need to be realigned. Speak with your heart not your mind. Make changes starting now that make you happy.
The Sun signs/rising signs that are affected most intensely are Cancer, Libra, Capricorn and Aries in17-25 degrees. Birthdays affected are: July 10-July 18; October 9-17; January 6-14 and April 6-14.
I pulled three Pages of Shustah cards for general influences of the Full Moon in Cancer. They are: (The Candle) which says to throw some light on the issue and ( Lord of Contemplation) says think before acting and (Divine Horse)you get what you need.
Thank you for reading and I wish you lots of blessings for a grand New Year which brings all that you desire now. Check out my radio show Going Beyond Astrology at 9pm EST Tuesdays on SGN. mixlr.com/spiritual-guidance-on-air and look for my new January article in offthecuffe.zine.com which is Hawk Medicine and Mercury Retrograde. Stay in the flow at this intense Full Moon in Cancer. Until again. Love, Jan
The phrase of the last few weeks has been polar vortex. When I heard that term I realized I must have missed something since global warming is what everyone says is really happening. So maybe the PTB should make up their minds and speak the truth since they know exactly what it is but continue the game. Oh well, life changes instantly, I hope the PTB realize that they are not immune to fate. Life is grand, isn’t it? Unemployment must be at 30-40% by now and benefits are not forthcoming. I notice how miserable those with power are these days, it just amazes me. Money and power obviously are still not good enough. What more could they choose to have? Well, the IMF is thinking about financial repression. More taxes may come on savings and capital accounts. A high exec from Netherlands said why not have the government just spend 1% less each year. Sure thing. And the Full Moon cometh!
Oh, Full Moon I wait for your energy to come upon us giving us the ability to transcend those things of old by going deep within and clearing them out so new beginnings can unfold. The FULL MOON in Cancer with the Sun in Capricorn takes place at 25 degrees 58’ on January 15, 2014 at 11:52pm EST, 8:52pm PST. Cancer Moon is about family, emotions and sensitivity. It is about nurturing and caretaking. Are your needs being met? Are you well taken care of at this time? When was the last time you stated your needs? You haven’t? Why not? Do you know what they actually are? They are those things that truly matter to you and support your inner core. Your inner core is your true self. When I think about my own inner core, I have a paradox to deal with when I go within. Perhaps you do too. FULL MOON in Cancer is also about creativity. This is a time you may wish to decide on your goals (Capricorn) and bring them to fruition in a creative way. Then again, who of you are less than happy or satisfied about how things are progressing in your life? Is there a fear present and you continue to self-sabotage your passion? Or are your expectations over the top? Suggestion is to take a really good look at your present course of action. Does it meet your needs? Does it make your heart sing? If it doesn’t, you need to do some more revising to create something better. And for those who wish instant action to take place, if you have some resistance within, entropy will continue and moving forward will be overshadowed.
Most likely Saturn (Capricorn) energies keep pushing you to do something. It may be a good time to pull back and take a breather. Some of you refuse to do that. Take a deep breath and relax already. There are many of you who just keep on going without that pause in the action. Your mind is constantly on, your feelings are raw and experiencing emotional meltdowns and your spirit is sagging and totally disconnected due to overwork. I don’t care how much Saturn cajoles you. Stop. Do you know why I say stop? Many of you have become robots. I see that in life around me and it is chronic. How much social media can you do in an hour? What will you do when it is no longer available? You think I am kidding. You are addicted and that is what the FULL MOON in Cancer can bring to you—addiction. Get off the bandwagon of the Matrix already. Chiron is also in aspect to both the Sun and Moon on the 15th. If you are feeling lack of energy then stop pushing. Do you feel like you are wasting time if you do absolutely nothing? That definitely can be from your past familial belief patterning. So again, it is saying address the past issues so you can take a leap.
Another part of this Full Moon is about family. Cancer Moon loves to mother others or they look to others to do the same for them. Family matters are always in the forefront with the Cancer Moon. Solitude is important to the Moon in Cancer. They love to dream and just be alone with their feelings at times to reach into their memories for answers to current issues. If there is too much negative energy in the air, Cancer Moon loves to go into a shell to just ponder and regroup. They need to do this every so often. At the time of this FULL MOON in Cancer, there may be emotional tension and stressful interactions. People can be moody and abrupt so in relationships be kind, and if hurtful words have been expressed show some compassion. Stop the victimhood. This is a particularly good time to let go of any old hurts that continue to plague you and distort your thinking and keep you emotionally trapped. Give it up dear ones. Forgive and go forward. Life is too short to hold grudges (something Cancer Moon may do). Live in the moment now as you let the past hurts flow away. Old familial beliefs are ready to be cleared. Give it a chance to surface and get rid of it. It is only holding you back from that creative passion. Venus Retrograde in Capricorn helps you go past those disagreements which simmer beneath the surface. It is time to reconnect. Remember those past friends and family members who you lost along the way. You feel like you want to reach out to them with interest again. Do it now before they move out of your realm.
If you are pushing to do something without all the ducks in the row, please be careful. The energies are getting wild and even though Venus is retrograde your plans can take off and if you aren’t ready to deal with the results, keep planning. Once you put them in motion and let them take a leap, whatever you put out there will move at extreme speeds to conclusion. Pay attention and don’t do anything unless you really choose it and are ready for it.
Those who have personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) at degrees between 22 and 30 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will be most affected by the Full Moon energies. This Full Moon is the halfway point between the T-Square of Pluto/Uranus in October 2013 and the upcoming exact square in April 2014. Life is getting more interesting by the moment.
I pulled an Animal Power card , the Bison. It is about prosperity. How does it connect to the Full Moon? Well, surprisingly it does. Bison prosperity energy is about believing all you need is within you to get what you desire. It is about. Bison asks you to keep moving forward even in disappointment and frustration. If you feel unworthy and empty then Bison energy will help you walk through it. You need to love yourself and love others, no matter how they act. Bison is about the Golden Rule. Act towards others with love and you will find that in return. Miracles do happen.
Bison Spirit, I am grateful for all your gifts of abundance and endurance. Come to me now and give e grounding. I need you to help me to slow down, be patient; having faith I will be provided.” (from Animal Powers cards)
Thank you for reading and thank you for all the good things you do. Life is changing quickly. Until again. Love, Jan
