“Everything changes, everything is connected, pay attention.“
Jane Hirshfield, Buddhism in Seven Words
Full moon rising,
high tide of emotion and imagination.
This lunation brings choppy waves,
no wonder there’s a tsunami.
full moon pressure at
or emotional withdrawal
to the pressures
of life’s demands.
Shifting ocean tides surge and swell.
Wave after wave
pulls back and reveals residue and debris.
Sift through your muck.
Feel into your bare bones.
Tuck into your shell, be tossed by the waves…
spiral inward, find your center,
strength and tenderness
“Believe in yourself and what you feel. Your power will come from that.” Melissa Etheridge
Cancer Full Moon

Every full moon emphasizes polarity and this one is no exception. Pluto is closely aligned this round (Opposite the Moon and conjunct the Sun), a planet of a catharsis, death and rebirth, regeneration and repair, power and fear.
There is a tendency to feel with great depth and intensity unless the focus is on avoidance and denial. Addictive behavior is compelling. There can be a sense of feeling at odds with self and/or with others. Some may feel attacked and focus on self-protection and security.
Take note of your own red flags, pay attention and dive deep into your emotional storm… in a non-destructive way!
It’s time to release the old, outworn habits and ambitions that are taking up valuable space in your psyche as well as in your outer life.
Tenacity and focus are enhanced – choose your intentions.
Venus has been retrograde since December 19 and will station direct on January 29. Mercury retro on January 14 until February 3.
Both of these cycles point to the unconscious rhythms of reflection within. Each individual has their own unique timing. Although society pushes us to focus on the outward, a large part of our lives is personal and inward. For most folks, it’s really not time to make a bold leap into the new year.
Cancer Full Moon Inquiries
How may be aware of and respond to my needs as I maintain my responsibilities?
What is crumbling that needs to be repaired or released?
How may I fuel the YES to releasing self-defeating habits that I’ve held on to for too long?
“What a treat for sharing with me in such a clear way, I’m able to hear you.
I identify so deeply with what you’re saying, deep, true and resonant. Thank you so much.” T.M.
The sun, the moon and the planets are your allies in seeking truth. They offer parameters, milestones and timing. They open doors – if you are willing to step through the threshold to deeper understanding and self-acceptance. I welcome your inquiry as we stand at the crossroads. I offer navigation in the mystery through astrology and tarot.
