As Snowy Owl and Shooting Star climbed the path to the Star Temple the western horizon was ablaze with crimson, gold, and lavender colours. Grandfather Sun was setting and as his rays diminished the air was cold and crisp here in the North Country. The eastern sky in contrast had turned to indigo. Before the sisters reached the center of the sacred space Sister Moon was rising and her Full face was golden lit by the rays of Grandfather Sun. Later when she sailed the dome of the dark night sky she would turn silver like the Starry Ones who traveled with her.
When the young women settled in the center of the Star Temple they heard Sister Moon begin to speak “Welcome dear ones. This is a very special Moon celebration. I have two Starry Ones who are my companions on this Full Moon night. The first is called The Shinning One. Next to Grandfather Sun he is the brightest Star in the Galaxy. He teaches the two leggeds to see the Sacred in the ordinary and to live from that place of awe and wonder. In the faraway time he is called Sirius and links the human kingdom to the Divine.” Sister Moon paused to allow the first part of her message to be absorbed.
“My second companion is called The Bright One and The Wise One. He is the guide that navigates new pathways on the spiritual journey that the two leggeds must take. He is the Path Finder when the individual is ready to travel to places where no one has gone before. In the faraway time he is called Canopus and he steers the Great Ship Argo on a different path that leads to the Sacred. These two Starry ones work together to open the human mind to the guidance from Divine Mind. There are other Starry Ones who are prominent at this Lunation but these two are the Ones traveling with me”.
Sister Moon was not finished her message yet. “There is also a Cosmic Grand Cross being formed by the planetary dance at this Full Moon. The two leggeds in the far away time have the opportunity to break out of the box that has been holding them back from achieving Illumination and living their Soul Purpose. Awakening and Transformation are the gifts that this Lunation is blessing the human kingdom with. In the far away time this is a New Year. All the work that has been done on the material, physical, mental, and emotional levels the past thirty two Moon cycles can now be completed. Each person in the far away time just has to choose the New Pathway and breaking through to the new is really that easy.”
Snowy Owl and Shooting Star thanked Sister Moon for her powerful message. They both knew they were ready to choose the New Pathway.
This is a potent and intense Full Moon to say the least. The Cosmic Cross or Grand Cross has the following players. The Cancer Moon (and Earth) are opposite a Pluto/Sun in Capricorn conjunction. The Moon asks us to listen to our Soul’s Guidance and Wisdom and Pluto/Sun asks us to release what no longer serves us so we can experience Transformation which leads to a New Pathway. Vesta (at oneness within) in Capricorn (personal empowerment) is also part of this configuration. Uranus in Aries (breaking through to the authentic self) is travelling with the Aries South Node (releasing the old self) and is opposite the Libra North Node (new ways of being balanced in the relationship to self and others). They are square (finding new ways of doing things) the Moon in Cancer and Pluto, the Sun, and Vesta in Capricorn. This Cosmic Cross is very tight and powerful. We may see some world events that will reflect this forceful potency for big change. This is a culminating Full Moon that requires big transformational change personally and globally.
The Moon is in her own sign so is giving us added support for healing and change. The Soul Centered ruler for the Moon in Cancer is Neptune in Pisces (illusion or enlightenment). He is called The Dissolver and he supports us to see The Truth. He in turn is square (finding new ways of doing things) Saturn in Sagittarius (limiting beliefs). Saturn is the ruler of the Pluto, Sun, and Vesta conjunction. The Fixed Star Rukbat (constellation of Sagittarius) is traveling with Vesta. The symbolism is steadiness, strength, and the ability to walk your true path with conviction. That requires releasing beliefs that are not your truth.
As we mentioned Saturn rules the Capricorn stellium (both traditionally and as Soul Centered ruler). Although he is in a challenging square with Neptune he is traveling with Pallas Athene, the warrior princess and Goddess of Wisdom. They are sextile (ease and opportunity) Mercury at 00 degrees Aquarius (universal consciousness) and Venus at 01 degree Aquarius (universal love). Venus also has a link to the Fixed Star Altair in the constellation of Aquila. The Eagle. The symbolism is to boldly seek inspiration and to soar to places others have not yet been. I love how the messages interconnect. Our story told us the Fixed Star Canopus, the Pathfinder, is our guide as we travel to places no one has been before.
There is another powerful planetary picture at this Full Moon. It is a YOD also called the Finger of God or Finger of Fate. The asteroid Juno in Leo (committed heart-centered relationship) is sextile (ease and opportunity) the Libra North Node (balanced relationship between self and others). Chiron in Pisces (the healer and problem solver) is the focal point. He is inconjunct (change, release, letting-go) Juno and North Node creating the YOD. Think of a V formation. Juno and North Node are at the top of the V and Chiron is at the bottom. The empty space between Leo and Libra is Virgo. The mid-point between Juno in Leo and North Node in Libra is 15 degrees Virgo 04 minutes opposite Chiron at 13 degrees Pisces 55 minutes. The empty space is the Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness. Thank you Universe!!! You always give us what we need. Oh yes a final note. Chiron, the healer, is trine the Moon in Cancer (ease and flow) and sextile Pluto, the Sun, and Vesta in Capricorn (opportunity to follow your Spiritual Vision).
The Animal Totem for Moon in Cancer is Flicker Woodpecker, new rhythms of growth and healing through Love. The Clan Mother is Loves All Things, she is the guardian of unconditional love and teaches us to Love the Truth in all things. She also teaches us how to forgive ourselves and others. The Animal Totem for Pluto, the Sun, and Vesta in Capricorn is Snow Goose, following your hopes, dreams, and visions. The Clan Mother is Talks With Relations. She is the guardian of kinship with all life. She teaches us to learn the truth and honour the Sacredness of all. For more insight on Animal Totems I refer you to “Animal-Speak” by Ted Andrews and “The Medicine Cards” by Jamie Sams and David Carson. For more insight on the Clan Mothers you can read “The 13 Original Clan Mothers” and “Earth Medicine” both by Jamie Sams.
The sign of Cancer is active on the Tarot Constellation of The Chariot; mastery through change. Change is an 11 word. Choose is also an 11 word. At this Full Moon will you choose to change? The number 11 is the beginning of a cycle of new beginnings. The 7th Tarot card depicts two horses pulling a chariot but wanting to go in different directions. It is up to the charioteer to channel his/her inner strength and spiritual power into the horses so they will work in unison. The horses are a symbol for emotions. The number 7 is a sacred vibration. I call it stepping onto the Mystical Path. That is what this Cancer Full Moon is asking you to do.
Capricorn is active on the Tarot Constellation of The Lovers, the principle of relationship and choice. Gemini, the 6th Tarot Card, is also on that constellation and activates the theme of the urge to unite, the choice to love, and ourselves in relation to others. Capricorn is the 15th Tarot card and activates the theme of the urge to separate, the choice to fear, ourselves in relation to the world. This Full Moon is asking us all to choose Love.
The Rays that this Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon activates are the 7th Ray of Ceremonial Order and White Magic, with Archangels Zadkiel, Invocation and ascension into higher consciousness, and Amethyst, transformation and freedom. They both carry the vibration of the Violet Flame of Transmutation. The next is the 3rd Ray of Divine Mind and Active Intelligence with Archangels Chamuel, healing through Divine Love, and Grace, gratitude and generosity. Finally the Sun in Capricorn activates the 1st Ray of Divine Will and Power with Archangels Michael, protection and spiritual destiny guide, and Faith, love and trust in self as our guides.
