Full Moon In Cancer – A Deeper Truth

On December 29th, 2020 (December 30th, 2020 in Europe and Asia) we have the last Full Moon of the year.

The Full Moon is at 8° Cancer and it is sextile Uranus in Taurus and opposite Mercury in Capricorn.

Both Mercury and Uranus deal with the mental plane.

Mercury with our primary thinking processes.

Uranus with what’s beyond our limited human consciousness – the higher mental plane. A good metaphor astrologers use to describe Uranus transits is “divine downloads of information”.

Something out of your conscious mind comes to you much like an impulse, like an electrical current – and it is so powerful, so enlightening, that you can’t do anything but LISTEN to it. Call it intuition, synchronicity, or an omen – it will bug you and bug you until you acknowledge it.

At the Full Moon in Cancer, you may feel conflicted about some news or information you learn about (Full Moon opposite Mercury).

The Uranus sextile message is clear though: open your mind and new doors of perception will open. There is always a reason “why” things happen the way they do. And the process of acknowledging this deeper truth can be extremely liberating.

The Sabian symbol of the Full Moon is “A small girl bends over a pond trying to catch a fish”.

The Sabian symbol is a metaphor for the innocent and spontaneous mind, that is not bound by dogmas or driven by the orthodoxy of the past.

Knowledge is elusive and mysterious, and sometimes we can’t grasp it at an intellectual level alone – we must employ our emotions as well. Within Cancer’s cardinal waters, if something ‘feels’ right, then it probably is right.

At the time of the Full Moon, Venus is conjunct South Node in Sagittarius. This transit goes in the same direction. Sagittarius is the sign of higher knowledge. Venus is our values and feelings, and the South Node is a release point. If something ‘feels’ true, then it probably is true.

Full Moons and South Node transits both have a strong ‘culminating’ vibe. They are an energy peak that seeks release. If you have an idea, share it with others. If you have a project inside you, birth it into existence.

Cancer is a feminine and manifesting sign. Cancer is the family, the roots, the womb of creation, the safe, nurturing space where life is formed. Cancer is the source, the root cause, the deeper truth.

Our home, family, parents, our culture of origin are deeper truths that cannot be questioned. We cannot change our parents (even if we’d like to). We cannot erase hundreds and thousands of years of cultural conditioning.

Of course, we cannot remain trapped in the past either. Capricorn (Cancer’s alter ego) asks us to continuously reinvent ourselves. But we can only do this when we know where we’ve come from.

Cancer is a cardinal, initiating sign. The Full Moon in Cancer can be that turning point that will set your life in a new direction, a direction that is truer, more authentic, and more inspirational to you. It is about time. A new year and new adventures await you.
