The night is generous
it can give you
a gift of the full moon
it can bless your soul
with endless treasure..
We welcome this first Full Moon of the year! The Full Moon is always in the sign opposite where the Sun is. So, as the Sun is now in Capricorn, the Moon is in Cancer. Since the Moon is “ruled” by Cancer, this is her annual visit to her home sign, offering her greatest, most benevolent light. Her gift is one of nurturing, and she calls us to care for all beings with whom we share this planet. She inspires us to live in a spirit of tolerance and peace, while also nudging us to be a bit loony!
It is an especially luscious time for making emotional connections and celebrating the power of love in our lives. Cancer is all about home, security, nurturing and family (both blood and heart families). As astrologer Lisa Dale Miller points out, “This is the Full Moon to swim in the unbounded ocean of love that connects us with the rhythm of life and all other sentient beings.” Let the lushness of this Cancer Moon help you focus especially on relationships, for this is the Full Moon to call emotional healing into your life where it is needed.
In this magical annual conjunction, with the Moon in Cancer, and Sun in pragmatic Capricorn, we are blessed with the sacred marriage between the secret tides of our heart’s desires and practical steps to make them come true. Now is the time to gaze deeply into the magical pool of your dreams. And then, get real and get it done.
This is the ideal Full Moon during which to weave prosperity spells, for we are in the time of the element of Earth which rules over practical matters like finances. Plus, Cancer’s Moon is about nurturing, security, and also abundance. One suggestion is to take three silver coins and place them in the moonlight, while chanting,
Shiny and round, bring me a boon.
Draw to my hands many more of your kind.
Multiply, grow, like the view in my mind.
The Moon is the realm of psychic wisdom, premonition, and Mystery. Yet in the light of day, the Sun shines now with the Capricornian Goat’s energy of steady, step-by-step progress that can climb the highest mountain with sure-footed accuracy. So besides your Moon Magick, sit down today and do some smart financial planning. The energy is right for building a strong foundation of prosperity, comfort and love in your life.
For Cancer is the sign of the Great Nurturing Mother, an ideal time to open and receive the Seed of your sacred dreams and life’s longings. May your Moon dreams be ecstatically blessed.
