The sign of Cancer is multi layered and complex. In the natural Zodiac Wheel it is the fourth house which is ten pm to midnight, the time for winding down from the day’s activities and retreating. The keywords for this Cardinal Water sign are “I feel everything deeply.” So expect emotional issues to be prominent with this Full Moon. Cancer is associated with our roots and origins, the family we grew up in and the family we have created. The question Cancer asks is “where do I belong”? It is linked to the mother, nurturing and nourishment, so wherever this sign is located in your natal chart can indicate what your relationship with your own Mother is about. It also means if there are unresolved issues this Full Moon will activate them. On the physical/material plane the sign of Cancer must learn to master the emotions. One of the difficulties is that Cancer has a hard time letting go of the past.
When Sister Moon visits Cancer she is home for that is the Zodiac sign Luna rules. That means she is very strong for she is the ruler of this Full Moon. The spiritual ruler for this Moon in Cancer is Jupiter, expansion and growth, currently traveling Rx in Cancer asking us to look within and connect to our intuitive knowing and guidance. The Soul Centered ruler is Neptune in Pisces, illusion or illumination. On the metaphysical plane I consider Cancer the sign of Spiritual Destiny and stepping onto The Mystical Path. That is also what Jupiter and Neptune are supporting us to do.
Jupiter, the largest known planet in our Solar System is part of a planetary picture called a T square at this Full Moon. He is opposite Venus Rx in Capricorn who is asking us to be personally responsible and be empowered in the world as we embrace our Soul Purpose Path. They are both square, finding new ways of doing things, Mars in Libra, important relationships. Mars in Libra is either the peaceful warrior or the passive aggressor.
But if we look deeper there is actually another celestial body called a dwarf planet, currently in Aries, that is forming a grand cross (breaking out of the box) with Jupiter, Venus, and Mars. It is Eris, the Goddess of Strife, Stimulation, and Rivalry, who has been held responsible for instigating the Trojan War. In Greek mythology she is linked to Ares, the god of war. The planet was sighted in 2003 by astronomer Mike Brown and his team but it wasn’t until January of 2005 that they unofficially named the new find. They called her Xena after the television show Xena, the Warrior Princess. There was actually much conflict (strife) in the astronomical community at that time regarding the definition of a planet. When Eris became her official name in September 2006 she was demoted to dwarf planet, as was Pluto in August 2006.
But the original name of Xena actually shows her positive expression, fighting for what is right and just. In her book The Future In The Stars astrologer Alison Chester-Lambert uses this quote from the write up for the television show “In a time of ancient gods, warlords and kings, a mighty princess is forged in the heat of battle. Her name is Xena, and only her courage and passion can restore order to a world in turmoil, a world crying out for a hero!” The highest expression of Xena/Eris in Aries opposite Mars in Libra is to be the hero/heroine standing for what is right and just.
There is another Grand Cross (breaking out of the box) being formed at this Full Moon and Eris is part of it as well. The Moon in Cancer (mastering the emotions) is of course opposite the Sun in Capricorn (becoming empowered in the world). They are square (finding new ways of doing things) Vesta (at-oneness-within) and Ceres (the nurturing principle, sharing, attachment and letting go) in Libra (relationship and balance). They in turn are opposite Eris and the asteroids Isis (death and rebirth) and Amor (compassion). The message is definitely that it is time to release the old patterns that keep us stuck and experience the birth of the authentic self. That will continue to be the theme for the next few months.
The Animal Totem that guides us for the Moon in Cancer is the Woodpecker Flicker, transition and spiritual growth. The Clan Mother is Loves All Things, the guardian of unconditional love. The Animal Totem for the Sun in Capricorn is Snow Goose, following your dreams and vision. The Clan Mother is Talks With Relations, the guardian of all life and all things. For more insight on the Clan Mothers I refer you to The 13 Original Clan Mothers and Earth Medicine both by Jamie Sams.
The Moon in Cancer is active on the Tarot Constellation of The Chariot; mastery through change and stepping onto The Mystical Path. Cancer is found on the 7th Ray of Invocation and White Magic with Archangels Zadkiel and Amethyst guardians of the Violet Flame of Transmutation. It is also found on the 3rd Ray of Divine Mind and Creative Intelligence with Archangels Chamuel, healing through Divine Love, and Charity, manifestation and gratitude.
The Sun in Capricorn is found on the Tarot Constellation of the Lovers; relationship and choice. It is the choice to unite in love or separate in fear. Capricorn, along with Cancer, is also found on the 7th and 3rd Rays. But it is also a 1st Ray sign which is the Ray of Divine Will and Power with Archangels Michael, protection and spiritual destiny guide, and Faith, trust in Divine Guidance.
Sorry there is no story this time. We are having major house renovations and the noise has been distracting to say the least but also appropriate for a Full Moon in Cancer. The kittens have actually adjusted to the noise and activity better than I have. They are almost 7 months old and a daily joy.
Even though we are only 15 days in so far 2014 has lived up to its promise of challenge and change. Just to remind everyone I am available for astrological consultations if you are interested in what this year’s journey is about for you. You can contact me at for information. I am also thinking of teaching a Spiritual Astrology/Medicine Wheel course. Let me know if you are interested.
