First an affirmation for this Cancer Full Moon.
“I embrace the nurturing energy of the Cancer full moon. My emotions are a source of strength and wisdom. Like the moon, I release what no longer serves me and welcome in the light of emotional healing. I am grounded, secure, and connected to the loving energy of my home and family. As the moon waxes and wanes, I find balance and harmony within myself.”
Cancer Full Moon-Are you nurturing yourself?
This Cancer Full Moon is the last Full Moon of 2023 invoking the archetypal energies of Cancer/Mother Nurturer, Capricorn/ Father Protector along with Taurus/Jupiter/Adventurer and Teacher. The Moon stays in Cancer until December 29th at 00.23am
The Sun is in Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, which gets a bad press. The positive is Mastery. There is a positive flow (a trine) from Saturn in Pisces to this Cancer Full Moon. Working with Saturn entails having goals, a clear plan for the year ahead and putting it down on paper.
Finding Faith and Hope. Jupiter makes a positive contact to both the Moon and the Sun.
This is really good! Jupiter softens the effect of the Sun in Capricorn ruled by Saturn. Jupiter brings blessings and hope for the future. It is called the Great Benefic.
It signifies the start of 2024 as a year when the Teacher/Optimist Archetype can contribute to our well-being. Look upward and to the west to see Jupiter shining in the night sky.
Plus at the New Moon on January 11th 2024 Mars will be exalted in Capricorn and trines Jupiter exactly! Time to take positive action.
Its a very emotional time as Neptune is also involved
Venus forms a positive trine to Neptune, however Mercury is in a challenging contact with Neptune. Intuition can be strong when focused on the heart but logical Mercury can be confused. If you are sensitive to energy, maybe with a lot of planets in Pisces or Cancer, or strong contacts to Neptune then you may be temped to shut down the news which is full of negativity.
I highly recommend the book Intimate Conversations with the Divine, Prayer, Guidance and Grace by Caroline Myss. She writes that having a Prayer Life is vital for her and how important is the power of language (Mercury). She asks us to pay attention to the words we use. Is it a crisis or a wake up call-an opportunity?
Mercury in Sagittarius moves direct on January 2nd
The other main news is that Mercury will finally move direct next week. It returns to Capricorn on January 14th. This is the business sign of the zodiac where Mercury can perform well.
- Full Moon December 27th in Cancer. The Archetype of the Wounded Healer Chiron in Aries moves direct
- Mars in Sagittarius Moves into Capricorn where it is exalted on January 4th
- Mercury in Sagittarius Moves direct on January 2nd. It returns to Capricorn on January 14th.
- Venus in Scorpio until December 29th, when it moves into Sagittarius. It will then be in a mutual reception with Jupiter in Taurus. That’s great news in restoring our faith in love.
- New Moon January 11th in Capricorn
- Sun into Aquarius January 20th 2024
- Uranus in Taurus goes direct January 27th
Uranus goes direct on January 22nd, so from then on all planets will be moving forward until the next Mercury retrograde on April 25th.
Please watch my YouTube video above as I explain more fully about this Cancer Full Moon.
EARTH SIGNS Jupiter moved into Taurus on May 16th for an entire year
Jupiter the greater benefic is about to move forward at 5 degrees 35 mins. Look where that is in your birth chart. It stationed at 15 degrees Taurus. It moved into Taurus for an entire year on May 16th until May 25th 2024. This is wonderful news for Taurus and Scorpio.
Jupiter is the planet of faith, faith in life, that life is worth living. It takes 12 years to go around the zodiac, so look back 12 years to understand its influence in your chart. It is the biggest planet in our solar system and Jupiter is Zeus, King of the Gods. It brings good luck, expansiveness and the feel good factor. It truly is the planet of abundance, especially now its in the earth sign of Taurus.
Taurus is an earth sign ruled by Venus, and it promotes all activities connected to the earth such as gardening, music, farming, art, material wealth and all good things on the physical plane. It promotes cleaning and using Marie Kondo’s methods of letting go of anything that doesn’t bring you joy. Fellow earth signs Virgo and Capricorn benefit from Jupiter’s gaze. Taurus is also compatible with the emotional water signs of Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio.
EARTH SIGNS Uranus is still retrograde in Taurus activating 23 degrees Taurus to 19 degrees Taurus. Change is what Uranus needs. Work with it. Make some practical changes in your life. Clear out those cupboards!
WATER SIGNS Neptune The Dreamer is now direct. In Pisces it favours all the water signs. Watch your visions and dreams, get creative and meditate. We now have an opportunity to bring our dreams into manifestation. Trust your intuition.
One key word for Neptune is compassion. However it can also indicate illusion, deceit, scandal, loss, drowning, a feeling of being overwhelmed and lost. If you’ve been feeling exhausted, depressed, over-burdened and with little energy then I recommend taking time out and being kind to yourself. Bach Flower remedies such as Elm, Sweet Chestnut and Oak may be helpful. Also for shock Rock Rose or Rescue Remedy.
EARTH SIGNS Pluto is now direct. Pluto is an outer planet and affects world events. It is at an angle to the Nodes of the Moon, so past life stories can be activated if you have a planet at 29 degrees of Capricorn.
However Pluto becomes more personal if it connects with one of inner planets in your chart. These are the Sun, Moon, Mercury Venus and Mars. It is activated at mid-life when it makes a square to itself around the age of 38. It will move into Aquarius next year from January 22nd until September when it will retrograde back in Capricorn. However it only transits up to 2 degrees Aquarius so not a major transit.
