January 15 Full Moon in Cancer

15 Jan

This first Full Moon of the New Year may have us a bit more moody and emotional than usual, especially in regard to relationships and money.  This Full moon is in Cancer and Cancer is the natural ruler of the Moon itself.   Both govern the feelings and emotions, the Home, the Mother and the past. 

The Love planets Mars in Libra and Venus Rx in Capricorn are experiencing some friction at this time and Jupiter in Cancer is there to make it an even bigger deal. There could be anger over something that is ‘not fair’ and we might feel we’re ready to upset the peace.  Jupiter in Cancer stresses the importance of being honest about how we feel which may threaten the security of old ways or it may help to eliminate any obstacles that may be preventing an ‘even playing field’.  This may have to do with boundaries either crossed or walls built up in relationships.  We may also need to deal with the issue of what we need to feel secure and if it is worth it.  Money issues also come to a head at this time too and could be at the root of the issue.  Joint finances, estates, retirement plans, insurance, properties, etc. are all highlighted at this time. 

Ceres also makes her presence known at this Full Moon bringing issues about parenting and child care into the spotlight.  It could be that you may need to balance nurturing vs. discipline, or it is possible you’re trying to balance home vs. career, or maybe there are even mother vs. father; single parent and custody issues.  Ceres could also shine a light on women’s issues such as pregnancy and menopause.  This doesn’t have to be a bad thing since we need a little friction at times to get things going and to make a move or to make it happen.  If you’ve wanted to grow your family, this Cancer Full moon could be as good a time as any to give it a go.  What have you got to lose by trying? Ceres also has to do with our family ties, our sense of belonging and clan membership and it could be that this is also contributing to some of the relationship woes you may be experiencing. 

Ceres does also correspond to the work force and agriculture so these types of issues may also come to light at this time.  Stories in the news have talked of employment equality as well as a major cereal (Ceres) company no longer using GMO products.

Mercury in Aquarius is in a favorable aspect to Uranus in Aries and we may be able to come up with new ideas.  Thoughts may be coming and going quickly or a conversation or piece of correspondence may surprise you.  It may be that we have unusual conversations possibly having to do with our freedom and independence; or it is possible that we can come up with solutions that are good for everyone. 

Saturn is supportive of this Cancer Full Moon and may mark the completion of some lesson or test.  And it may have to do with joint finances, shared responsibilities, closeness, intimacy, sex and also about conserving our resources.  Whether we’ve passed or failed remains to be seen I suppose.  But it is at least a bit of a stabilizing influence.
