The Luminosity of Fulfilment – Full Moon in Cancer
Art: JESSICA BALLANTYNE
“This Moon is the reflection of the promise from the Universe, and the reminder that the potential to accomplish (Capricorn) is alive within us. And the way to achievement is through the destruction of all (pointless) attachments, fears, obsolete views, outmoded patterns of behaviour, and self-imposed limits or obstacles.”.
The first Full Moon of the year is happening on the 2nd of January 2018 at 3:25 AM CET (or 1st of January 9:25 PM EST) in Cancer at 11°Cancer 38′.
We start the year with a lot of power (energetically speaking).
The first Full Moon of the Year is in Cancer and she is the head of a pattern called “kite” (see figure below, and chart at the end of this post).
As we see, she opposes the Sun in Capricorn, which is conjoined with Venus and Pluto (big changes and life restructures), while Saturn is not too far there!
The Moon is also forming a water grand trine: on one side with Jupiter/Mars in Scorpio (very deep stuff), and on the other side with Neptune in Pisces (sensitivity whirls might be adding up).
This Moon is the bright fruition from the past New Moon in Sagittarius seed (wisdom, setting visions). Now that the Moon has reached Cancer in opposition to the Capricornian Sun, we come to a point in which all the intentions, motivations, experiences and the visualisations that we have set before, are now shining in front of our eyes.
This Moon is the reflection of the promise from the Universe, and the reminder that the potential to accomplish (Capricorn) is alive within us. And the way to achievement is through the destruction of all (pointless) attachments, fears, obsolete views, outmoded patterns of behaviour, and self-imposed limits or obstacles.
It is very important for us to understand this, now that the year is just about to begin. This Lunation holds the promise of self-realisation. But we must destroy all negative and self-destructive patterns of behaviour.
What are these? Our own fears (fear to fail, fear to fall, fear to lose something or someone, fear of being criticised, fear of not being good enough, fear of rejection, fear of loneliness, and so on).
