Full Moon in Cancer - Forgive and Break Free

On Saturday, 12/22/2018 the Full Moon will be exact in 0° Cancer.

Cancer is a cardinal Water sign - a nurturing, protective and intuitive force that represents the Power of the Soul and the emotional realm. It represents the archetype of the Caretaker, the Nourisher.

During Full Moons the Sun's light is reflected on the whole surface of the Moon (of the side that we see). Metaphysically speaking, the Sun represents our willpower & conscious decision making (our masculine energy), while the Moon represents our emotions & subconscious decision making (our feminine energy). So during the three days before and after the Full Moon our subconscious fears and beliefs come to the light, in order to be either released/transformed or celebrated. 

This Full Moon coincides with the Winter Solstice (and a meteor shower!) making it even more magical.

“The last time it occurred (Full Moon + Winter Solstice) was in 2010 and the next event will not be until 2094. “ (Source: Forbes)

The next event will not be until 2094. That makes one think. Most of us who are reading this won’t be in their current physical bodies anymore.

Cancer represents the end of life, as well as the beginning. Birth and death are almost the same - birth is a portal into this world and death a portal out of it.

Cancer also stands for our home. What is our true home? The source of all of us? If we go back in time, into our past, far enough we find that we all come from the same source. This makes us all family. Something to think about when we find ourselves feeling disconnected from others.

This Cancer Full Moon is opposite Saturn in Capricorn and Square Mars in Pisces. Additionally, Mercury and Jupiter are creating a conjunction in Sagittarius and Pluto is activating our South Node in Aquarius.

What does this Full Moon mean for us on a metaphysical level?

It asks us to break free from attachments of the past that are restricting us in the now to express ourselves to our Highest Potential. This could mean ex-relationships that we are holding onto with anger or sadness. As long as we hold a grudge against people from our past we don’t allow ourselves to open up space for new love to come into our lives. The Square to Mars in Pisces asks us to courageously forgive.

Exercise Tip:

Reflect back and ask yourself if you hold any grudges against people from your past or present. Write down three things that you are grateful for that this person has entered your life. Each encounter brings a lesson. We just need to allow ourselves to learn and then let go of our expectations of how we think it should have went. Acceptance is the key to inner peace.

Coinciding with the Winter Solstice, makes this Full Moon lighting up the night sky of the darkest day of the year. Even in our darkest hour, there is always a glimpse of light. Focus on the light and you will find your way of out of the dark. Allow this Full Moon to guide you into the direction your soul seeks to go.

Forgive and Break Free from your Past.

Meditation exercise:

Open your arms and receive the nectar of nourishing love and protection from tonight's Full Moon. Breathe your heart chakra towards the sky and let yourself receive forgiveness and compassion, unlocking your subconscious, and breathe out the past and attachments that are no longer serving your Highest Good.

 

Now is the time to connect with the emotional subconscious realm. Find time to nurture yourself, nourish your soul in ways that make you feel safe and protected.

Cancer rules the past and endings, let go or transform past memories (tell yourself a new story!) so that they serve your highest purpose.

See the love within all there is.

Cancer also rules motherhood, children, midwifery, family, home, protection, safety and vulnerability.
