Happy Full Moon in Cancer! And Happy Holidays! 💖

DECEMBER 26, 2023 @ 4:33 PM PST // 5:33 PM MST

Happy Full Moon in Cancer,

My Star Sisters & Brothers!

I hope your holidays have been happy & merry so far! This Full Moon in Cancer, naturally opposing the Sun in Capricorn, reminds us of where we have been, how far we have come, and (maybe for some) how much further we would like to see ourselves go in this lifetime. Cancer represents our internal world, our emotional body & psyche, as well as our connection to home/family/ancestors/our roots. The illumination taking place here now may feel very raw & vulnerable for some, and for others, it may feel very comforting & nurturing, as we navigate the Cancerian waters of our soul. Whether you are surrounded by family (blood, extended or Soul Fam) at this time or not, it’s a beautiful opportunity between now and the next New Moon to connect on that deeper level within ourselves, to feel the activation taking place within our DNA even, that is propelling us forward into our highest potential.

There is a Grand Trine happening in the Earth sign of Taurus, between Jupiter, the Sun and Black Moon Lilith (BML), providing a graceful energy to guide us towards expansion (Jupiter) of our life’s purpose (Sun) and letting go of any repressed parts of ourselves (BML) in order to fully ground-down into this new version of Self that we are building within. Chiron will be exiting his retrograde motion and will begin moving direct about an hour after this Full Moon peaks, allowing us to start progressing more quickly as a collective, when it comes to healing the Wounded Warrior within, and co-creating a world together that welcomes the Divine Masculine energy to return to its pure form (not only collectively, but within each one of us as individuals, too). Let’s support each other in healing those wounds around rejection of self & overcompensating in order to “fit in” or be seen in a certain light by our peers, so that we can stand authentically & in integrity together, as the individuals we are meant to be.

The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is a bit foreboding, but instead of looking at it in such a way as to point towards inevitable ruin, I prefer to see it as the “karmic adjustment” that Rudhyar mentions in his commentary below, which is so necessary for us to collectively avoid complete disaster & devastation. We all have karmic adjustments to make in life, no matter how spiritually advanced you may consider yourself: because there is karma from previous lifetimes that is still being hashed out in this life! Not to mention the silly (and sometimes regrettable) things we have done in our past in this lifetime: the key here is to see yourself as a Spiritual Being having a Human Experience. When we see our life in such a way, no matter how many trials & tribulations we have experienced, we are able to reconcile & integrate the shadows within, in order to transmute them into the Light of Consciousness. Be gentle with yourself: we are all in School Planet Earth Together!


I always like to end with the Sabian Symbol for the Moon’s degree, which lands at 4 degrees 58 minutes of Cancer (we always round up with the Sabian Symbols, so this one will be at 5 degrees), as described in Dane Rudhyar’s book, An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and its 360 Symbolic Phases (pg. 113):


KEYNOTE: The tragic results which are likely to occur when the individual's will pits itself carelessly against the power of the collective will of society.

The automobile symbolizes the individualized consciousness eager to pursue its own course of action regardless of how it may conflict with the collective consciousness of the community (the train). The symbol implies that at this early stage of the new process which began with this seventh scene, all such individual and relatively anarchistic or law-defying attempts are bound to fail. The driver may live, but his car will be wrecked.

Lest we consider this phase totally negative, we should realize that most of the time man learns his lessons through relatively destructive experiences—the via negativa of the mystic, or even the strange occult concept expounded in some sects of "salvation through sin." One may speak here more generally of KARMIC READJUSTMENT. This will become evident as the next five-fold sequence is considered.
