On Wednesday the 19th, we'll experience our first Full Moon of the year. The upcoming Full Cancer Moon at 29 degrees mirrors the July 21st, 2009 Total Solar Eclipse, also 29 degrees Cancer. The Moon feels comfort and at home in her own sign opposite the Sun in Capricorn, the parental axis.
What makes this Moon interesting is that it's the apex of a Yod, the "Finger of God". The planets connecting to the "finger" are Chiron/Neptune in Aquarius and the North Node in Capricorn; collectively sending spiritual energy to the Moon. The Moon is already receptive by nature and this particular Full Moon more so. "Take what you like, and leave the rest", what's no longer serving your spiritual growth and higher good becomes clearly evident. The 29th degree, an ending degree, likes to hold onto people, places and things too long, past their "due date", yet when it finally decides, considering every possibility, it's swift, taking immediate action. There's no turning back. The Moon Child is the proverbial collector, assimilating feelings, thoughts, and sensations, a heightened intuitive awareness. Ms. Moon receives Divine guidance in this matter from Jupiter and Uranus, forming a lovely, confident, supportive trine.
There are some curious midpoint pictures though:
Sun/Moon = 29 Aries
Mercury = Venus/Mars, Jupiter/Sarurn, Chiron/Hygeia, Saturn/Uranus, Pluto/Pallas
Venus = Neptune/Juno, Mercury/Hygeia
Mars = Mercury/Chiron, Venus/Black Moon, Mercury/Neptune, Pluto/Chiron
Mars is conjunct Asteroid "Tea" (Tea Party??) = 3 Aquarius 54'
Pandora 6 Cancer 38'R opposes Pluto (For those Avatar fans, the symbolism is endless :-)
Chiron = Sun/Uranus, Sun/Jupiter, Mars/Black Moon
Vesta = Mercury/Venus, Venus/Hygeia, Venus/Pluto
Pluto = Sun/Venus, Pallas/Node, Saturn/BlackMoon, Neptune/Hygeia.
On a mundane level, water will continue to be an major issue across the United States and across the Globe. As I type this, it's 28 degrees, and snow is falling again in New Jersey. In my town alone, we've experienced approximately four feet cumulatively, and winter has essentially just begun. While the current snow is forecast to turn to rain/sleet, flooding is likely in many areas. We'll continue to hear about more flooding in the news, affecting homeowners, land, and crops.
For those who have planets at 28/29 degrees Cancer, or within a couple of degrees on either side, you're receiving a boost and protection from benefic Jupiter and innovative Uranus.
