At Zero degrees CANCER, this Solstice Full Moon signifies a brand new cycle as well as a culmination as signified by the Full Moon. It is the Alpha and the Omega. O and 22 in the Tarot. Further connections to that too.
Cancer is a Cardinal Water Sign, governed by the Moon. This makes all Cancer Full Moons especially womblike. We unconsciously wish to return to the safety and total nurturing we felt within our mother’s wombs. This makes this a most feminine, pregnant, fertile, emotional, moody, sign of family, home, emotional security, children, nurturing, nourishment, and the unconscious, the womb, our memories and our mother lineages.
Cancer rules the stomach and tummies will be especially sensitive during this Full Moon. Do be careful of what you eat. All your nerves will be felt in your stomach. Mercury is conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius, remember to breathe and really this is super optimistic energy.
The sign of Cancer is related to Card #7 The Chariot in the tarot.
Our emotional bodies are the vehicle which our souls and emotions use to accomplish our karmic work in each lifetime.
It’s a rare full Moon conjunct the Solstice, and won’t happen again until 2094.
As we begin the new season, Winter in the Northern Hemisphere and Summer in the Southern Hemisphere we start at zero which is the symbol of the Fool in the tarot and 22. The Fool symbolizes the whole innocent trusting Magical child. This Full Moon is definitely a call to nurture, nourish, and pay attention to our own Inner Child, the Magical Child as well as all the children in the world who need protection. This includes all the animals and creatures on the earth who are Mother earth’s children too.
VENUS trine NEPTUNE
The Full Moon includes that beautiful Venus conjunct Ceres in Scorpio trine to Neptune a very romantic, uplifting, compassionate, spiritual, creative, loving energy. You may be feeling like your head and your heart is in the clouds. You can be feeling too high, confused and lost under this transit too.
JUPITER is conjunct MERCURY in SAGITTARIUS
At 9-10 degrees they are conjunct to the Fixed Star Uriel the Protective Star. Jupiter rules Pisces too and lends real fairy dust, sparkles, unicorns and rainbows to this Full Moon. It is very spiritual and psychically uplifting.
The SUN is in Capricorn at zero degrees with Saturn, Pluto and the South Node. There is lots of earth to help empaths and psychically sensitive people stay grounded. You may need to have your psychic shields up as the Full Moon which increases the tidal pulls even more.
Chiron @ 27 Pisces is square to the Sun and Moon and to the Galactic Centre
There is a lot of emotional energy during this Full Moon. Let yourself cry, and release all the emotions you can. Mars conjunct Chiron further pushes our desire for Galactic healing, cleansing, renewal.
Uranus in Aries Retrograde @ degrees inconjuncts the Sun and sextiles the moon.
This aspects further increases sudden unexpected changes, as we have seen President Trump and the chaotic nature of the Stock markets in the last while.
LILITH and VESTA in Aquarius square VENUS +CERES in Scorpio and square JUNO in Taurus
This is a power pact GODDESS T-square. Cancer and the Moon are always associated with the Divine Feminine. The Dark Goddess LILITH and VESTA, the fiery, grounded, ocussed,Goddess is pressuring the Love Goddess VENUS and CERES, the Great Mother to change and transform and JUNO, the Goddess of Feminine Genius sits solidly in Taurus to help us practically embody all of these fine aspects of the Divine Feminine as Maiden, other, and Crone.
This is holiday time to spend with Family and make sure you do reach out to loved ones. Cancer is sentimental there will be lots of reminiscing and a traditional tone to the Good Old days holiday season.
This is the last Lunar cycle of 2018, spend time looking back at what you intended to create for the year and what happened. The solstice energy lasts 3 days. Sit in contemplation as much as you can.
Moonstone is the mineral to work with on every full moon and especially this one.
Plan out your next quarter with the full Moon energy. 2019 will be a smoother ride than 2018 was.
