Wolf Full Moon in Cancer. Wolf: Teacher, Pathfinder, Moon-dog of my Soul
Wolf Full Moon in Cancer- This Wolf Moon is the Teacher and Pathfinder- What’s your Vision for Leading the Way?
The Moon is in its own sign of Cancer, with the Sun in the opposite sign of Capricorn. These are the Mother Father Archetypes, which reside in all of us. In a personal birth chart these archetypes naturally belong to our 4th house roots -our home – opposite the 10th house which represents our career and vocation- our status and what we do in the world.
However the New Year really begins with the next New Moon on January 28th in the sign of Aquarius.
I reviewed the January Full Moon last year, and I felt it was important to remind you to tune into one of its names – The Wolf Moon.
The wolf is the Teacher, which is Jupiter in astrology. Jupiter is currently travelling through Libra – the sign of Justice and Balance- ruled by Venus in Pisces (which is conjunct Neptune). The messages we receive in meditationat this Full Moon are to be highly valued.
As Jupiter is opposite Uranus, relationships are in the spotlight as mentioned in the blog on the New Moon on December 29th. Freedom is the cry of this emotional Full Moon, however wait a week before making any decisions, as the consequences may be irrevocable.
Wolf Full Moon
I am quoting at length from the Medicine Cards by Jamie Sams because I believe this is an important message to hear at this time:-
“Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine.
Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal like Dog In the Great Star Nation, Wolf is represented by the Dog Star, Sirius, which legend tells us was the original home of our teachers in ancient times.
Sirius was thought to be the home of the gods by the ancient Egyptians, and is still considered so by the Dogon tribe in Africa. It stands to reason that Native American peoples would formulate this same connection and adopt Wolf people as the clan of teachers.
The senses of Wolf are very keen, and the moon is its power ally.
The moon is the symbol for psychic energy, or the unconscious that holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom.
Baying at the moon may be an indication of Wolf’s desire to connect with new ideas which are just below the surface of consciousness.
Wolf medicine empowers the teacher within us all to come forth and aid the children of Earth in understanding the Great Mystery and life.
The Wolf says that you may be able to share your personal medicine with others.
Your intuitive side may also have an answer or teaching for your personal use at this time. As you feel Wolf coming alive within you, you may wish to share your knowledge by writing or lecturing on information that will help others better understand their uniqueness or path in life.
It is in the sharing of great truths that the consciousness of humanity will attain new heights.
Wolf could also be telling you to seek out lonely places that will allow you to see your teacher within. In the aloneness of a power place, devoid of other humans, you may find the true you. Look for teachings no matter where you are. Wolf would not come to you unless you requested the appearance of the tribe’s greatest teacher.
To live is to grow, and growing comes through accepting all life forms as your teachers. Become Wolf, and take up the sense of adventure. You may just stop howling and learn to [become] the moon.”
Boundaries and saying no
This Full Moon in Cancer highlights the issue with boundaries and the abilty to say no. This holds true since Jupiter is in peace loving Libra. Telling someone you are too busy is a cliche, and can be hurtful. If someone asks you do do something that you don’t want to do, first thank them. Then be firm and reply that this isn’t the right time. Saturn is encouraging this, so value your time. Its precious.
Neptune is called the higher vibration of Venus and together they connect us to both personal and Divine love. Truly inspirational, this Full Moon in Cancer is one powerfully emotional full moon. Barack Obama’s tribute to his wife Michelle as his wife, mother and best friend, epitomises the energy at this time.
All Planets Direct
For a brief time all planets are moving forward, a time that we too can move forward in our lives. Mercury changed direction this week on 9th. However its still in its ‘shadow’ phase until 27th January, so be aware of missing emails and mistakes around communications.
