11° Cancer Full SuperMoon ~ Jan 1st-2nd 2018 @2:32UT

Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless — like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; you put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; you put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash.

…Be Like Water, my friend. Be like water” Bruce Lee

The sensitive water element features strongly in this first Full Moon of 2018, which is also a numerological magical 11:11 portal. Crossing over this New Year’s threshold into Twenty-Eighteen could be quite a profound and demanding, emotional yet entertaining, shape-shifting affair. This Full Moon is also the largest of two Super Moons in a row, and a double whammy Moon-ruled, watery Cancer Moon, when intuition, impressions and perceptions could also be magnified, just as Earth’s tides – when all kinds of events and circumstance favour an ability to seamlessly go with the flow, weathering higher tides and surfing sometimes choppy waters with the consummate skill of a hunky Australian surfboarder. 

There could be many a different wave and phase to navigate during this fluctuating Cancerian Super Moon, which reflects the light of the earthy Capricorn Sun; as Luna waxes on New Year’s Eve, peaks New Year’s Day, and sustains until the Moon changes signs into Leo late Tuesday 2nd. At the same time the ‘Agent of Change’, Uranus, also turns to go direct after a five-month retrograde, implicating new connections to made with Mother Earth (with nice wine and aperitifs, we hope), as well as to those heroic individuals that adjust and grow within peer-group friendships – individuals who are able to pass through the ring of fire and emerge unscathed, integrity intact and ready for renewal. Now those associations require an intellectual basis and a solid plan to go forward, rather than just proximity, faith, or physical attraction to be considered friendly.

Times are again changing; and the way we network individual and team talents and skills within the web-of-life will also alter with the Uranian Agent of Change, in May. With a shift of Uranus from self-orientated Aries into nature-loving Taurus, aside from appreciating glorious gardens and the preservation of wild-life, we also need to deal with reality. A question to ask is ‘will the almost inevitable further reliance technology enable ordinary people to become stable and lucrative, to be able to feed, house and clothe themselves and their families, and not just be more financial fodder for the privileged’? We will know more around the beginning of May.

Currently, the Sun is one of four celestial markers accenting stability in the accomplished sign of the Sea-Goat: Pluto the powerful; and seductive Venus is still with Time Lord, Saturn, accenting a natural preference for experience, with an appearance of poise and control, even if a wild New Year banshee is tantalising, mysterious, or just plain overwhelming. Bear this in mind throughout 2018: sturdy Capricorn planets can also provide a secure anchor that enable one to ride the surges of emotional energies, especially those surrounding a SuperMoon that often challenges our intuition to morph into psychic awareness. 

All the planets in reliable Capricorn also suggest overcoming a fear of a woman in her power, making a commitment to build relationships that work, together. Having a trusted confident, girlfriend, loved one, boss, professional or co-worker who has a practical, hands-on sensibility is a major plus – particularly helps problem solve recent issues from late November or mid-December.

Please also note 2018’s first Full Moon is no ordinary Super Moon, because Earth is also approaching ‘Perihelion’, which means the Earth is closest to the Sun, while the Moon is closest to the Earth, making Earth, Sun and Moon the closest they are going to be for the entire year. Up close and together! What an interesting portent for 2018! A variety of geophysical activity is also cosmically bound to be activated and heightened; floods and earthquakes come to mind, especially as the Moon integrates the horoscope with a ‘Grand Water Trine’ that accents completion and renewal through healing and purification.

A Grand Water Trine involves all three water signs 120° apart. Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, bound together in a tight triangle formation reveals spiritual and karmic mysteries, as well as how people are easily influenced and can be made into victims – as well as saviours, manipulated by circumstance or easily swayed. Whilst oceanic Neptune’s Piscean realms take one into uncharted realms, into the world of the metaphysical, through divinity, dancing and dreaming; the Cancer Moon can be particularly receptive to all kinds of unseen forces. Mars and Jupiter, however, have now strengthened Scorpio’s talent for using a secret x-ray vision to see beyond obvious appearances that can stop one from being totally carried away or duped by the dubious.

I could talk for hours about the Water element, as it’s one of my major interests, which I will save for another time because NYE is upon us! And a New Year brings many resolutions. Suffice to say water fills the mould it finds itself in. And it has a memory. Water understands a lot more about our feelings than we generally give it credit for – and it retains that information. It’s no surprise the Great Whales are the shamanic record keeps of our planet; they have seen it all and remember everything. Water can be perfectly still or start with a silent ripple to surge from the lapis lazuli depths to violently cleanse and clear. Much depends upon the planets traversing through Water signs.

This Grand Water Trine also forms the major triangle of the even rarer ‘Kite’ formation, with a smaller ‘mini-triangle’ created by the Capricorn Sun and Venus being the mid-point making harmonious 60° aspects that create a positive influence to the Trine aspect between Mars/Jupiter and Neptune. The Sun and Venus in opposition with the Cancerian Super Moon thus produce the ‘holding’ axis.  Here the Sun conjunct Venus highlights wisdom’s inner beauty and the ability to stay centred. When all around may swirl remember to generate a stillness within (breathe deeply and slowly into the belly to get grounded), and allow life to settle and quickly regain clarity. Venus and Saturn urge us to create a world based on love, a love of others, one’s true self, one’s work and one’s own ambition, without the fear of failure – or success – that makes one feel isolated, threatened by perceptions that make one hide behind shields or build walls. This is a year when we can learn to untie knots in our hearts and release the free flow of love to generate positive karma.

Also in this Cancer Full Super Moon chart is another sparkly Triangle: the ‘Grand Fire Trine’. This fiery Phoenix graced our skies for much of 2017, and is now passing. Any excitement which stirred-up heated passion and creativity can still be tapped into this year, not with ardent fervour but with loving care and attention. For 2018 is a year of commitment, consolidation and conservation, construction and productivity, with planets Saturn and Uranus moving into Earth signs, Capricorn and Taurus respectively. By 15th February, with the Valentine Solar Eclipse New Moon (Asian New Year), we enter into the year of the ‘Earth Dog’ emphasising loyalty, kindness and justice.       

Meanwhile wishing all CIA readers a very happy SuperMoon! And a wonderful start to 2018 ~> May all be auspicious!
