If a Full Moon on the first day of a New Year could speak, I think it would tell us the following:
First off, Cancer as a sign is deeply sensitive, emotive yet incredibly powerful and intuitive. Cancer is what's known as a Cardinal Water sign in Astrology. Cardinal signs are powerful & forceful in their own way. Many think of Cancer as this nurturing (maybe even sometimes pushover) type energy, but that is far from true.
A Cancer Full Moon is full of feeling. Something I talk about often in my work is the fact that in order to truly move forward and progress in life we MUST let ourselves feel. To begin a brand new year in such an emotive, watery energy I believe reminds us to feel our way through our experience, not just think our way or force our way through.
Full Moon's themselves have to do with release. What are you absolutely not taking with you this year? What is something you can't carry with you emotionally moving forward? I'll speak up first, I had a pretty painful breakup last year and I decided (today) to once and for all leave the energy of holding on to the pain and the story back in 2017 where it belongs. The idea "you can't take it with you" rings true on this Cancer Full Moon. Cancer as an astrological energy rules the past, and this Full Moon can also be about declaring release from ancestral ties or stuff we have held with us for too long that comes down our gene lines. We are constantly reinventing ourselves each and every moment if we *choose* to.
If you've been feeling unhealthy attachment to the past or to something that simply doesn't serve your happiness & growth, try the following:
1. Go into a simple meditation, closing the eyes and paying attention to the breath, say a prayer to your higher self and/or angels to help you let go of the situation and person causing pain. Trust that when you ask for assistance, you will receive it. Ask that the assistance be gentle and nurturing.
2. Visualize in your minds eye gently cutting cords of whatever attaches you and this person or situation. Watch the cords break. Then visualize gathering all of your power back up and returning it into you. See & feel yourself fill with light and love.
3. Thank yourself for this journey. Take a few deep breaths to bring yourself back to the room and the present moment.
There are a lot of very helpful aspects with this Full Moon. Including three trines to power planets Mars, Jupiter & Neptune.
Trine to Mars: Feeling emotionally sluggish or off? Movement, action & taking initiative will assist in a major way to move stagnant energy. You will most likely feel empowered to move forward & let sh*t go.
Trine to Jupiter: We are met with super helpful energy from the Universe to expand ourselves, learn and grow forward. Emotional work & self "improvement" *always* pays off one way or the other. The result? Our inner peace.
Trine to Neptune: Meditation will feel extremely good and maybe even easy with this aspect. Dreams can be incredibly vivid and powerful. Write them down and see what they have to say for you or perhaps even the situation you meditated and explored above.
