Solutions Lie Within

Cancer Full Moon January 2017

Thursday’s full Moon at 22 degrees Cancer is much more than a connection to our deep familial roots and what makes us feel safe and secure; It can lead us to imagine more than we thought possible and bring the hidden aspects of ourselves out into the open creating deeper authenticity and reward.

Over the past several months we’ve experienced a type of see-saw between who we’re choosing to be individually and expanding our idea of relationships with others. There’s also been an additional pressure on how to actually balance this dilemma and create a working template on how we can move forward. The sign of Cancer has been seeking to deliver the solution and this month’s moon is providing the necessary illumination.

Moon energy awakens our deep needs and unconscious reactions and knowing this aspect of our inner nature is one of the greatest gift we can give ourselves. Ultimately, it helps us to bridge wisdom and compassion so we can love others more fully.

We can quietly ask ourselves in advance of this full moon the following questions and keep the answers loosely available knowing those answers could improve and deepen over the next few days. While answering the questions, check in with your body as to how comfortable you feel with your answer. The key to authenticity is refining the intuition where the body feels relaxed and “right” with the answer.

A Cardinal Grand Cross is a combination of opposing energies and challenging tensions. It asks us to tune into ourselves and balance and heal energies that may unconsciously be triggering conflict.

Meditating on the following 3 questions can help bring about this new clarity and use the cardinal grand cross energies to our advantage. With awareness, we won’t feel as likely to be triggered, pushed and pulled by the opposing and squaring energies. We can instead take a deep breath and tap into our inner knowing.

  1. What unique talents or insights do you have and would like use and identify with moving forward? (Uranus in Aries)
  2. How can I use this talent to expand my relationships with others in a way that is beneficial to them and myself? (Jupiter in Libra)
  3. What do I see myself doing or creating that will yield the longer-term results that I’m looking for and will give me a life of meaning? (Sun conjunct Pluto in Capricorn)

In addition to the four cardinal energies of the grand cross in Aries Cancer Libra and Capricorn, we have strong positive influences coming from Sagittarius and Pisces. Saturn in Sagittarius is making positive aspects to Jupiter, Uranus and Sun/Pluto. Saturn teaches us that maturity will lead to the best result. This tells us that the ease in answering the questions comes with using our eagle’s perspective in our mind’s eye to foster wisdom to see the truth for ourselves.

Mars in Pisces is also in positive aspect to the Moon and Sun/Pluto in Capricorn. Pisces represents unity consciousness, connection to spirit and universal love and Mars is providing us the energy to create with these ideals. Though we may be tempted to pursue goals based in only the physical, it is best to remember that the physical is only temporary and that life is about our soul centered journey. This month the Moon, Sun and the planets are reminding us to create foundations based on truth, authenticity and wisdom.
