Happy New Year everyone.
A Super Full Moon in Cancer occurs on Monday or Tuesday depending where in the world you live!
A Super Moon isn’t a regular Full Moon. A Super Moon is a Full Moon that is the closet it can be to earth. It appears to us at least 16% larger for us to see. Because it is nearer to the earth its energies along with the Moons effects are felt on a much larger scale. The Moon as we know rules over the tides in the ocean, and with the Moon being bigger and closer to earth the tides will be much larger and powerful and so will our emotions as Cancer ( a water sign) rules the Moon. To add more to the crazy Super Moon energy, we are all made up mostly of water, and most are going to be affected by this much more than usual. The frequencies emanating from the Super Full Moon affect the frequencies of the mental body, our minds, our feelings, emotions and desires. Have you been kept awake all night for no reason? Felt the intense energy of the Full Moon building all week? Having psychic or vivid dreams? People acting strange and unusual? Have you or people you encounter act super over reactive, moody, cry for no reason or are super happy? The Moon can have this effect on many of us!
The Sun (in Capricorn) being the light giver is shinning its light onto the Moon. The Moon than illuminates us with its Luna energy. It also symbolizes we have reached a completion point in the lunar cycle. Everything we have been working towards these past weeks will reach its peak as this Full Moon will just explode with light, love and let everything go that no longer serves a purpose! It showers us with energy of releasement and fulfillment.
A Full Moon occurs when the Cancer Moon at 180 degrees exactly opposes the Capricorn Sun at 180 degrees. The year begun with the focus squarely on family and emotional security. This Super Full Moon is at 11° Cancer. So Cancer energy will be illuminating and shinning its qualities onto us here on earth. Cancer is about nurturing, intuition, families, safety and emotional security. The Cancer-Capricorn polarity ( Being exactly 180 degrees from each other) means that Capricorn quality opposes you and what your interested in at this current moment, but we must find balance. We are more interested in Qualities represented by Cancer such as our private life, our family life, domesticity, our need for a safe loving home, providing and very nurturing versus Capricorn Qualities such as our public life, being super focused on our career, our reputation, stability, practicality and being in the here and now long with accountability. This Full Moon is about balancing our commitment to our career and families. In some ways, you can look at the polarity energies with finding a balance between unconditional love and conditional love. Just a heads up, by neglecting either end of the Capricorn/Cancer axis, this will surely backfire on you. Ideally, we should all try to find a balance between the two energies, and this is what the Super Full Moon invites us to do.
This Super Full Moon in the water sign of Cancer you may notice yourself unusually interested in creating or deepening powerful loving bonds, being over affectionate, wanting to nest in your home, baking, caring for others, being overly sooky and very nurturing to others. Cancer is all about their internal home as well, its internal feelings and emotions, deep analyzing, and even deeper thoughts and self connections. People who have been feeling lost and disconnected from them self-will begin to reconnect with themselves and who they really are. You will find you are searching for attachments and love, placing roots down, being proud and valuing your home and everything and everyone in it.
This sensitive Cancer Moon forms some serious aspects and has sharp conversations with Venus, Saturn, and the Sun. This is suggesting that work and effort is needed to bring what is necessary into focus, especially when writing out what big plans you have for this year along with releasing any blockages holding you back. Full Moons are all about letting go and releasing what no longer serves us. By the time the evening comes around, it brings a lovely Neptune dream state quality that helps you to release and loosen up from the seriousness of the early part of the day and helps us engage in loving dreams of the future.
Furthermore, Something has been building up inside of us, have you felt it? I sure have! This is now the time when we get support from the energy of the cosmos that demands that we let it out. If you can not quite pin point what it is, over the next few weeks, you will get ‘Aha’ and awakening moments to discover what this means for you. Its time to express whats been building up inside. This Cancer Full Moon will align with Venus and then forms a harmonizing aspect Neptune and Mars. Some may express their neediness!! However as needy as we can be under the Cancer influence we may swing from independence to dependence during this time.
This Super Full Moon is really going to illuminate and prompt us to get in touch with our self, with those things in our personal lives that we may have been putting off and neglecting. A real push for self emotional nurturing is the key this Full Moon. Write down what is working and what isn’t and think about what you can do to make change. Set some goal;s for 2018. We have spent more time focused lately on our careers, relationships and personal plans as of late, that we have just simply left our emotions unbalanced and on the back burner, not good at all.
Its time for change! We must remember that lots of Light tends to illuminate the darkest shadows of us all , so use this Full Moon to release and let go and make room for change! This Super Full Moon will also reminds us that to truly move forward and evolve as a soul we must deal with and address the past. This is not one of Cancer strong point, sometimes we have a hard time doing so, be kind to yourself if past issue and hurts arise, run yourself a bath, cook a nice meal, watch your favorite movies, get out in nature, put your feet in the sand and ground yourself.
This super, sensitive, nurturing and caring Full Moon is going to be a time for love, romance, fertilization and relationships. What we begun back at the last New Moon is now at a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment with this Full Super Moon!
Happy New Year and Happy Super Full Moon Day x
