Like a Mother looks after her child, the Moon at home in Cancer provides a place of protection, a sanctuary from the chaos of fast-changing times, and an anchor in rough emotional seas. Take comfort with this first full Moon of 2017, the Full Cancer Moon, as it stimulates our ability to awaken the Divine Mother (within each of us), to show care and consideration in love, unconditional and pure, for all beings, at home, at work, in partnership and with friends.
Important characteristics that encourage a healthy mind and happy heart come into celestial focus during this week’s Full Moon, with principles, discipline, and the practice of patience karmically rewarded. Now the Sun in ethical Sagittarius emphasises the need to remain open and flexible, the wise Archer in opposition to the bright Gemini Moon also urges one to heed the call to restrain thoughts, words and deeds which are divisive or harsh, otherwise many previous good actions will be negated.
Always longing for something, we humans brim with earthly desires. You name it: money, food, beauty, buildings, brains, status, wisdom, power or enlightenment, we want it all. Being desirous is our natural state, seemingly, a condition that can propel as easily as repel. Our wants and wishes make things happen; and when things go the way we want we think we’re happy; yet all-too-often and with no particular effort from our side, our desires can also make us miserable, especially if our demands are unfulfilled, or laden with obstacles and frustration. So, how do we deal with desire from the astrological point of view?
In the words of Heraclitus, the Greek philosopher who taught about an ever-changing universe, change is our only constant. As the winds of change now begin to blow into a potential hooley, in the midst of such daily whirls and flow all we really want is to be happy. What stands out in this constant quest for happiness is how important it is for the human spirit to have a sense of autonomy
he Full MOON closest to the season-changing equinox, when geomagnetic activity is already heightened and Earth’s auroras and magnetic fields are stronger, we are cosmically bound to feel a powerful surge of deep emotions which an eclipse in a water sign arouses; these feelings can illuminate and connect the natural beauty of the heart-mind, as well as bring to light the previously hidden or unconscious.
While this Full Moon eclipse will not turn a romantic copper-coloured red during this month-plus-long eclipse season (give or take a few days), the freedom-loving Full Aquarian Moon reflecting the bright light of the playful Leo Sun stills promises lots of fun and games. With a Full Moon that portends sudden zaps and flashes of inspiration into past-present-future action – especially in regards to one’s own uniqueness and creativity, the gifts one brings to organisations and group situations can enhance the sense of ‘oneness’.
The lunation now culminating in a midnight Full Capricorn Moon on the 19th/20th July (22:57 19th UT) began earlier this July, with the still cardinal Cancer Sun and its’ ruler, the Moon, opposite Pluto in Capricorn; Pluto is the tiny outer-planet that packs powerful impact. As a ‘generational’ planet, Pluto’s influence can be extremely far-reaching, working on subtle and atomic, psychic levels, affecting the soul evolution of the masses, especially when accented by the waxing Full Moon, as it is this July, 2016.

Tripping the Light fantastic in the heavenly dance of Sun and Moon, there hasn’t been a June Solstice Full Moon quite so lively and potent since 1997; and the next one to also be so impressively strong will be 2035…
