"We are born at a given moment, in a given place, and like vintage years of wine, we have the qualities of the year and the season of which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything more." - Carl Gustav Jung

Cancer Full Moon 2014

   The Full Moon takes place at 11:52 pm tonight, at 27 degrees of Cancer. When the Sun and Moon do their monthly do-see-do in the Cardinal signs of Cancer and Capricorn, issues of home and security are on the table. It is time to take some action, or at least see if there is anything you need to begin looking at. Perhaps you need to focus on what can give you the most security and identify if that is in your professional life or at home. Maybe you're not having any issues, just enjoying home and hearth during these cold months, so you get to really feel the comfort your home and surroundings can give you. Pay attention to how secure you feel and you'll know where you need to take action.

   The Sabian Symbol for the Moon's placement at 27 degrees Cancer is A Violent Storm In A Canyon Filled With Valuable Homes, which seems quite intense. Weather is definitely a factor in many places around the globe right now, but this speaks to more than just the physical elements, it also addresses emotional and spiritual well being, particularly since safety and security are the key concerns of Cancer and Capricorn. Homes are valuable to whomever lives in them and the threatening storm can have an affect in any of these areas of well being.

    The Sun is opposite that degree at 27 Capricorn, for which the Sabian Symbol is: A mountain pilgrimage. What is involved here is a striving to reach the top, whether alone or with others who are also on a pilgrimage.  Is what you're trying to attain a career goal, business security or a successful passage through a time of great travail? No matter the goal, you will be  no doubt have company at various points along the way. How do these others fit into the bigger picture of what you hope to achieve?

   Another aspect to this Full Moon is the Moon's recent involvement with both Venus (money, love and values) and Mars (energy, aggression and direction). With Venus also in Capricorn and Mars in Libra,  there is more emphasis on your personal finances and who you choose to spend your time and money on. All four corners of the Cardinal axis are engaged by having planets in each of these Zodiac signs: Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn. Jupiter, still in Cancer and conjunct the Moon earlier today, just ratchets up the emotional quality of whatever issue you are dealing with.

   My advice would be to not overreact on any level just now, but to wait until things settle down a bit before taking a stance on where the breakthrough is possible. Venus and Mars will be stepping out, or more accurately, squaring off, with each other midday tomorrow so  you may experience another hit of who has the power right now, if it isn't you. New information or insights can arrive early Friday under the Leo Moon as Mercury and Uranus join forces for a productive possibility and are then both engaged by Luna as well. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunity to present itself! 

  As always, the illuminating power of the Moon at this point in her cycle is showing you how well you planted your seeds two weeks ago at the New Moon and where you need to tend, water and weed in order to attain your business or career goals. With Venus and Jupiter still retrograde for the rest of January, the inner search for self-worth and emotional security is what matters most. 

  Remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground as you seek this knowledge of self~
