The Sabian Symbol of the Moon 1 degree Cancer :
There is, or there soon will be, a momentous change in the works. Something that once stood as part of your life is changing, whether this is something you desire, or not. As we grow and change there are many things both big and small, which like signposts, show or signal our position and beliefs. Some people may be very pleased with this new shift, while others may feel neglected or shut out. Indeed, some may be shocked at this seemingly sudden change, even if it’s been coming for a while. Those who have been really observant of what’s been unfolding may not be surprised at all. The important point is that it is not enough to just go through a change as we journey through the emotional seas of life; we also need to make commitments of some kind and give obvious signs of where we stand, who we stand with and what we stand for. Something is changing, possibly dramatically, and this transformation should be taken seriously. What signals are you sending out or displaying? It might be a good idea to run any new ideas or plans up the “flagpole” to see if anybody salutes them.
Making affirmations of what is wanted may be a useful gesture to yourself and those involved. Show to others involved your commitments and give signs of where you stand, who you stand with and what you stand for.
The Full Moon occurs on 22nd December at 17:48, Lisbon time. It takes time together with the Winter Solstice which represents the darkest night of the year. With a Full Moon, the sky is not at all in the shadows of darkness but brightly illuminated by a nurturing Cancer Moon. With the Sun in Capricorn at 0° opposing the Moon at 0° Cancer new beginnings are undeniable. 0 degrees of any sign is very powerful…suggests the need for a new perspective in the area of life in which the two luminaries are found in your chart as well as your sign.
The Full Moon is a time of celebration and, just before Christmas, is a wonderful opportunity to gather, celebrate that we survived astrologically a challenging year of Retrogrades when everything seemed to take a lot of effort to move forward with our goals.
Full Moon and North Node are both in Cancer and will illuminate an area of your life on which you have to keep eyes on in the next year and so and make any effort of the changes that you need to make in order to find emotional satisfaction and a sense of happiness and fulfillment.
The Huber image is an Ambivalence triangle between Sun, Moon, and Uranus suggesting clearly the need for new ways of thinking, especially with revolutionary Uranus in Aries. At the beginning of the year, we felt this urge to break free but we need to be aware of what stays and what goes from what was initiated at that time.
The cardinal energy battery is 100% charged suggesting a good start to take action but also the water element is present transmitting that we cannot go one with our goals without paying attention to our feelings and our hearts. Balancing the opposites, the Yin and Yang, the feminine and masculine is obvious with this Full Moon. A change is required in the relationship with others but also within. How we go with this change to obtain an equilibrium is what is required to be aware for the next two weeks.
