Cancer Full Moon: Home Coming ( 7 January 2023 AEDT)

Happy Cancer Full Moon! A lovely way to open up the year, with some illumination of where we need more nurturing, care, love and emotional security. Cancer as a sign represents the home, family and inner world of emotions. And this particular full moon may help us get some clarity about where we've allowed our mind to frazzle us emotionally, where we've let thoughts run rampant and cause us distress, or where we need to lean into loving communication.

Happy Cancer Full Moon! 

A lovely way to open up the year, with some illumination of where we need more nurturing, care, love and emotional security.

Cancer as a sign represents the home, family and inner world of emotions. 

And this particular full moon may help us get some clarity about where we’ve allowed our mind to frazzle us emotionally, where we’ve let thoughts run rampant and cause us distress, or where we need to lean into loving communication.

This is because Mars, the planet of action and fire has been in retrograde in Gemini, while Mercury the ruler of Gemini, has also been in retrograde! 

They turn direct January 12 and 18 respectively. But with all this attention on mental energy, communication, information, reflecting and analysing, some of us may be a little emotionally warn out!

Are you feeling it? 

Cancer also represents the feminine and motherhood.

Which gives us an opportunity to use this time to connect to that mothering energy within us and use it for self heal, so we can care for and nurture our very own inner child. 


To set the scene: 

We opened up the year with that Venus and Pluto connection which had some of us deeply thinking about value, self worth, and our relationships (including our relationships to friends, lovers, money, and our feminine and artistic nature). This energy could have placed some of us in fated experiences that opened the heart and uncovered some truths, while some of us could have gone deep into some soul searching. 

As the week progressed the energy lightened up: 

Venus who has newly arrived in the freedom loving and visionary sign of Aquarius, had a friendly conversation with Jupiter the planet of luck, their meeting created a feeling of liveliness, and desire to think outside the box.

Uranus was in a very fortunate conversation with the Su, which may have brought surprises, breakthrough moments and an electric feeling to the mood.

And Mercury and the Sun join forces in a conjunction just before the full moon. Their meeting bringing much needed clarity to the events of the past few weeks and offering some relief, and a feeling of lightness of being!

Looking forward:

Today is the first full moon of 2023, a time of illumination.

A time to look at the intentions and resolutions that you opened the year with, and decide which ones will satisfy you emotionally.

Which ones will support your inner world of feelings, and keep your home and family life in loving harmony.

What emotions you need to cultivate in your inner world to sustain, support you, and keep the above mentioned things in balance. 

And/or, you may be inspired to weave emotional security, nurturing, love and comfort into your very creations, releasing any nonessentials that have taken you away from your core.

What ever it is for you, I invite you to spend some time around water – Cancer is a water sign – whether its a warm bath or an excursion to the beach. Take some time for you today, indulge in some self care, and allow your emotions to be seen, felt, and accepted.

They are your navigation system! And listening to them will help you get to that place of clarity. 

 

Coming transits for this lunation cycle:

 

(These transits are in  Melbourne, AEDT time. Note that most countries are a day behind)

 

9 January – a day of mental breakthrough

Mercury comes into a friendly trine with Uranus, bringing with it the promise of change that is born of possibility.

Mercury is said to be the lower octave of Uranus, both planets ruling mind. Uranus being the higher mind that draws inspiration, innovation, and other-worldly ideas from the boundless divine future. This day is going to feel electric, filled with breakthrough ideas, that can bring freedom from old thoughts, beliefs, and habits.

A great day for journaling inspiration and declaring new truths. keep in mind that Mercury is still retrograde in Capricorn so the ideas might be a practical rethinking of old ambitions and career goals.

 

10 January – a meeting of the cosmic lovers

Venus and Mars, the star crossed lovers, meet in a friendly trine today.

Their connection inspires passion and an opening of the heart. Both planets are in Air signs, so the theme of the heart opening actions we may be inspired to take will be around communication, listening, mental stimulation, and intellectual debate.

With Venus in Aquarius the flavour of love will be the fringe, avant-guard, eccentric experience of self and other. And the desire to share and hear authentic expressions of the soul.

 

13 January – a day of momentum

Today Mars finally turns direct (12th of Jan in some parts).

The planet of passion, action, and independence has been retrograde since 30th October 2022, in Gemini. This may have caused a sense of ‘stuck-ness’ in one area of life, presenting in the form of obstacles, lack of clarity, or indecision. But this ‘stuck-ness’ has forced us to reflect, refine and become more self aware. All so we can course correct and come back into alignment with our divine mission. As Mars turns direct it is extra powerful, you may feel an urge to take action on a project, get some major mental clarity on your direction, or begin to feel like doors are finally opening and you can move forward with more ease!

 

14 January – divine purpose

The Sun meets Neptune in a beautiful sextile.

A day of self love and surrendering to the faith that you are were you need to be. A reminder that you are enough and your divine purpose matters. Use this day to reconnect to your faith in something greater, in the cosmic support, and divine love guiding you. A sextile requires an action. What can you do to connect to this energy so that you can receive its full potential?

 

15 January – a day of inspiration

Venus he planet of love, beauty, creativity, and money meets Uranus the great awakener.

This meeting can cause some tension as it is a square, but this tension will force you to make a choice. Use this energy to get creative, get inspired, download ideas, and allow yourself to lead with the heart. It’s a day to trust the truth in your heart and break free of the conditioning that has held it captive.

 

19 January – a day of clarity

Mercury finally turns direct (this happens on the 18th in some parts).

There will be a lot of clarity around our goals and how to achieve them, our communication, or self mastery and the areas of life that have and do require our integrity, authority and radical self responsibility.

19 January – truth and power

 The Sun meets Pluto in a conjunction! 

A day of death and rebirth of the ego. A time to see deep truths around our purpose, our power and what to shed to step deeper into the truth of who we are. A fated day of soul awakening experiences. 

 

20 January – AQUARIUS SEASON

The Sun enters Aquarius and we enter a new season of life. One in which we consider the whole, let go of the old, and step into our own gifts and uniqueness with nonchalance. 

 

22 January – Aquarius New Moon!
