“What can you do to promote world peace? Go home and love your family.” Mother Teresa
The last Full Moon of the year is occurring today in the sign of “nesting” Cancer, at 7 degrees (5:21 am EST), putting a spotlight on home, family, and security concerns. With this Full Moon, we also have the chance to gain greater awareness of how our personal life (Cancer) impacts our professional life (Sun in Capricorn), and vice versa. We are also ideally seeking to achieve more of a harmonious balance now between these two realms. Something that is often quite challenging for us to do.
Too, with Full Moons signifying a time of release, it is likely that certain elements will need to exit our lives now in order to obtain what we want for ourselves. Additionally, this “phasing out” period may be even more noteworthy now, as this Full Moon opposes “purging” Pluto and squares radical, “change-agent” Uranus. Plus, we are at the end of another calendar year and are likely much more eager to want to put the past behind us now, so we can start out fresh in the new year.
Moon-Pluto can provide us with greater resolve to face or tackle some of our darker or more serious issues, the ones that we maybe have been avoiding for a while because we were perhaps fearful or unsure of how to deal with them. In some cases, too, we may be forced to deal with certain issues now whether we want to or not. Both Pluto and Uranus have been known to add a certain urgency to our affairs, especially if we have been resistant to dealing with things in the past.
Also, this lunation trines “responsible” Saturn and “wounded healer” Chiron, suggesting that we do have two old masters by our side to guide us now. Moon-Saturn particularly summoning up our own mature judgment and wisdom, culled from our unique blend of life experiences. Moon-Saturn can make us very resourceful and resilient in the face of whatever life happens to serve up on our plate. “Turn your wounds into wisdom.” Oprah Winfrey
