Full Moon in Cancer – December 2012
This is our final Full Moon for 2012 and it offers potent energy for transformation and healing. Norway’s Per Henrick Gullfoss calls this a “Love Moon”, sounds good to me!! Chocolate Yoga is on holidays, enjoying the love moon vibration, so let’s hear what Molly Hall from Astrology/About.com says about this current moon phase…
A high expression of “Water Moons” or “Love Moons” is to choose NOT to respond to what is without love. A love Moon only reflects back what is loving and caring. In other words, it never criticises or feels rejected by the lack of love in others.
…Instead, we can attempt to walk the path of spiritual mastery that is devotion. This is being devoted to love, and to forgive the limits of others, in their loving. Devotion is to accept the love and devotion from others without judging or putting up defences or making demands for how one is going to be loved. This is the true love of seeing, meeting, and dancing with God, through seeing, meeting, and dancing with all the multiple forms of God that are manifested in the visible and invisible universe.
With the holidays upon us many are coming together with the family-of-origin where we bump so furiously up against each other’s limits of loving. This is where we’re triggered the most. And also, it’s with family, that we see the evolution of intimate family ties over the course of a lifetime. We have a long history. And every visit is marked ‘to be continued’ which means there’s time to soften, to come to deeper understandings.
Epiphanies happen at the Full Moon. Cancer and Capricorn (Sun) illumine the kind of intimacy that feels like family, and that takes many forms. It’s about your home base, and those you reach out to, to feel a sense of belonging.
This Moon, nurture your close connections, and if you feel isolated, reach out…The Cancer side of the cardinal axis brings us into balance, with compassion, empathy, and emotional intelligence. It’s seeing the priceless value of deep care and acts of kindness. This instinct will grow wings in 2013, when Jupiter goes into Cancer. The tide will turn, and we’re sure to see a breakdown of the social isolation that many live with.
Be alert to revelations in these Moonlit nights, of ways to drink in more love. There may be messages about what changes to make, for more organic love nourishment. It begins with self-love, and resisting the temptation to build calcified defences, in such raw and chaotic times
Cancer is a sign that finds strength in emotional sovereignty. And Capricorn is a sign of integrity, ‘walking the talk.’ When the Moon is full, the Sun is synced up with Pluto, for a vitalised purging and resettling. In the month of Capricorn, we find our centre again, and our footing. As we dig deeper for what it takes to fulfil our potential, we come up against presumptions, conditioned responses, emotional baggage.
So pay attention to the feelings that circulate up to the surface. Look at survival fears, and practical ways to feel more secure.
