“With passion pray. With passion make love. With passion eat and drink and dance and play.” ~ Rumi
Full Moons occur when the Sun is in the opposite sign as the Moon and are typically experienced as the most powerful phase of the lunation cycle. We can certainly expect this to be the case under this Full Moon because it conjoins the planet related to intensity and power — Pluto. This penetrating celestial energy will be reflected back to us through the symbolic essence of the Sun in Cancer. Astrologically, the Moon represents our internal emotional nature and the Sun our external passion and direction. Because the Sun is traveling through the Moon’s sign — Cancer, while conjoining the planet associated with our personal will — Mars, we can intend this Full Moon to transform any buried emotions that are keeping us from our personal power and passion for life.
Capricorn is the sign associated with maturity, time, outer world responsibilities, authority, control, fear, and emotional repression. Take time to evaluate your own personal understanding of responsibility in your life. Do you take on too much or do you avoid responsibility all together? Are you able to be your own authority or do you give your personal authority over to others? Do you trust in a divine plan or do you try to control your surroundings or the behavior and lives of others? And, lastly, do you have faith in the flow of grace in your life or are you fearful and pessimistic? Unconstructive patterns are often masking deeply buried emotions. Ask that any hidden actions be illuminated so they can be acknowledged and a plan put in place to make any necessary changes to be all that you desire.
Cancer is the sign representing emotional maturation and Capricorn the sign associated with time. As the Capricorn goat strives to reach the top of the mountain one step at a time, it often finds its success during critical juncture points of physical and emotional maturation. Under this Full Moon take “time” to evaluate the areas of your life that may need more emotional and physical maturation before they can culminate. Be patient with yourself and enjoy your personal journey knowing that you do not have to reach the top of the mountain in one leap.
This Full Moon is a beautiful time to partake in ceremony and create intentions for work-life balance, emotional and physical security dynamics, and healthy internal feminine-masculine balance. If you are unable to participate in a group ceremony, create one for yourself. Go outside and infuse your being with the Moon’s reflective light. Set your intentions, chant, drum, dance, howl—whatever calls you! Intend new goals for emotional freedom and passion of life. And, most importantly, base them on universal law—eternal well-being for all.
