In its own sign of Cancer the Full Moon is an emotional one – opening up the heart and requiring us to explore our own vulnerability. This particular lunation is powerful, with the Pluto (transformation) conjunct the Sun and opposing the Moon. Pluto encourages/forces us to go deep, beyond the superficial, and discover the treasure that lies there along with the ugly stuff that we prefer to keep hidden. Creating additional intensity is the square to Uranus which brings impatience and a potential for reckless behavior.
The Sun is in Capricorn now, and this Full Moon asks us to find balance between the emotional reactivity of Cancer and the cold hard facts of Capricorn. Our feeling nature and our practical side must find balance now.
All of these energies combine to create an intense experience that will be made easier with conscious attention. Psychodrama and ritual can be a great benefit during this lunation – this is a perfect time for prayer through dance or movement. Fortunately there are several beneficial aspects that will help to provide ease and support during this time (the power of the Full Moon usually lasts for about three days) including the harmonious sextile from both Mercury (mind) and Venus (relationships) to Saturn (grounding and structure) that provides stability and sensibility.
