The mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle is marked by the Full Moon. During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.
The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour & consciousness. In addition, during a Full Moon both the Moon & Sun are opposing each other on opposite sides of the zodiac… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.
The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego. It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression. The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.
The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams. It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.
Our first FULL MOON of 2017 is quite significant as it involves many of the ‘biggies’ in astrology and really sets a theme for the rest of the year. So much is happening astrologically this Full Moon… but here is an overview of some of the key aspects.
Firstly, the FULL MOON in watery CANCER will mean that emotions will be running very high this FULL MOON… but if channeled wisely, will be a brilliant opportunity to gain deep intuitive insight into your own personal themes for 2017. What do you envision / feel / imagine for yourself this 2017 and what must you let go of in order to birth this awakened vision of you ? Let the Sun in the practical sign of CAPRICORN bring to light what is felt deep within your Heart-n-Soul.
When the Moon is in Cancer, the focus is on your family and home environment. You may feel a sudden urge to de-clutter, finish those odd-jobs & make your abode more homely. The focus on family & relationships will also be heightened with the Moon close to the asteroid VESTA. Your heart will be guided to nurture and provide a homely sanctuary for your loved ones… or maybe spicing up the bedroom & spending time with your lover. There will be a calling to nest down and find solace in the comfort and security of your home.
This is an interesting start to the year with the Full Moon part of a CARDINAL GRAND CROSS (Command Click / Right Click the Astrology Wheel to your right to enlarge). The MOON in CANCER (with VESTA nearby) opposes the SUN in CAPRICORN (with PLUTO nearby) and…. JUPITER in LIBRA opposes URANUS in ARIES (with asteroid CERES nearby).
The GRAND CROSS formation (which creates a square, such that each of the 4 points are 90 degrees apart) brings forth tension, friction, but also creates an opportunity for quite profound change.
PLUTO in Capricorn is calling us to bring about change and breakdown outmoded strcutures in the dictatorial state of corporations, religion and governments. With JUPITER in Libra we are feeling frustrated with the curtailing of our freedoms, liberties and unjust government/societal policies and agendas. And with URANUS in Aries heralding rebellion and the unconventional… we are being pushed to break free of the box and find our freedoms that are unique for each and every one of us. And as JUPITER & URANUS oppose we are expanding ourselves into a greater vision of possibility and not waiting for the Governments of business to be this change… we KNOW it starts with US… it starts with YOU !
On a side note too, MERCURY the planet of Communication, moved direct from its Retrograde transit on the 8 January 2017 when it was conjunct the GALACTIC CENTRE (8th Dimensional Portal) of our Galaxy. Thus leading into this FULL MOON we are receiving ‘channeled’ insight into a more beautiful world… and now its up to us to take our insights and put them into conscious action. In addition, ALL planets are direct for the next 4 weeks… providing a tsunami LOVE WAVE of heightened / amplified potential for whatever we choose to focus our thoughts/emotions/feelings on over the coming month ♡
Putting this all together, during this emotional FULL MOON we are feeling very sensitive to world events, the crisis we see in the media, the frustrations with the state of politics… however if we continue to focus on what is outside of us we will succumb to much suffering and simply resign ourselves to feeling a victim to the system.
However, as this powerful FULL MOON sets a theme for 2017, as we move inward and FEEL deep into ourselves, our HOME in our HEARTS… we can find our ‘centre’ amongst all the chaos & fear and see a vision of something more beautiful, more kind, more compassionate, more unified that our hearts KNOW is possible.
So as 2017, a year of extremes unfolds, keep your ‘heart centre’ at the fore, be flexible, and flow with change. It is up to YOU/US to be an anchor of an awakened possibility for ourselves/humanity and create through us a divine new world for all. Simply CHERISH yourself, hold the vision and create a NEW STORY of Earth through you ♡
