This evening, the night sky will hold a big, bright, Full Moon. Compelling, soul stirring, and drawing us to its intense, mysterious light. The Full Moon illuminates. It brings emotions to the surface, realizations into full view, where we can no longer pretend we don’t understand. Used wisely, the Full Moon can help us to become stronger. We can take a stand, make an important decision, claim ourselves, own what is our responsibility, we can open up to higher wisdom, we can accept and move on, we can release with grace. Whatever it may be, it is connected to our happiness, to what we know to be true in our hearts.
During a Full Moon, the Sun is always opposite the Moon. This powerful opposition creates an awareness, a tension of the different needs and expression of these two luminaries, as well as an opportunity to create balance through the honoring and integration of these two energies. This polarity occurs between the Sun in Cancer and Moon in Capricorn.
Capricorn is an earth sign that is naturally drawn to accomplishment, and seeks integrity; where the outer world, is created based upon inner beliefs and personal values. Through the development of one’s inner authority, Capricorn is able to gain mastery within the physical world. There is a strong orientation to career, but more broadly the accomplishment of something meaningful; through discipline, commitment, and determination. And as a caution, with this strong need for personal authority and accomplishment, there is the potential for overbearing attitudes and behavior, and workaholism, which can lead to isolation and loneliness.
On the other end of this opposition is the Cancer Sun. A water sign that can be shy, and that seeks an open heart to life and all it offers. Cancer represents the Mother, the nurturer, and the healer. Intuitive, sensitive, and sometimes moody, Cancer has a natural orientation to personal safety, home, and loved ones. These opposing signs brings to the forefront, the importance of balance and healthy boundaries between the needs of the outer world of career, professional accomplishment, and, public reputation, and the needs of the inner realm of home and family, emotional sustenance and safety.
During this Full Moon, honor your truth. In sharing your feelings, remember the importance of listening with your heart engaged. This Moon is a time where we can each consider adjustments and changes that provide greater support for both our home and family life, and our professional and community life. Oppositions always bring to our awareness the importance of balance; that each end holds value, and that the truth can be found somewhere in the middle.
