Moonbeams- taking action, getting things done
Welcome to our first lunation of 2017! The Moon will be in 22 degrees of Cancer which is the Master Builder number, signaling a major transformation that will create the foundation for this year.
There will be a grand cardinal cross happening at this time with Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Libra, Pluto conjunct with the Sun. The whole year will be under the influence of this Cardinal energy, so it will be a year of getting things done and taking action. Cardinal signs will feel this the strongest, however, everyone will be transformed in some way.
The date of January 12, 2017 adds up the number 14 which is a karmic number. This number is about initiative, taking charge, and everlasting momentum. The transformation this moon brings will set the tone for the whole year, so just because something does not manifest in these next two weeks, does not mean there is not a lot of construction and deconstruction going on, although that is highly unlikely. The Moon will be in the sign of the crab, Cancer, so ultimately, this energy is about reconnecting us to ourselves, our internal oasis, and sense of comfort. It is ironic that this grand cardinal cross will be quite uncomfortable, because it is only when we are out of our comfort zones, when we are able to grow and find our way back “home.” Many of us will have a major change of heart about something, and all of us will be enlightened.
If you have either you Sun, Moon, or AC in the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) your personal lives, home, relationships, and careers will be illuminated. If you have your Sun, Moon, AC in the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) then your opinions and perceptions will be illuminated. If you have either Sun, Moon, AC in Mutable signs (Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini) then issues of security and possessions will be illuminated. Please check to see where this Full Moon will be in your natal chart, because the house its transiting will bring a transformative energy to it. Saturn in Sagittarius will bring a stabilizing energy to this upheaval, so while it will be intense, rest assured that your life is being changed for the long-term.
This is a time of major emotional releasing. Uranus is rebelling, instigating a defiance within us, Jupiter in Libra is asking us to harmonize with our heart, the Sun and Pluto in conjunction is creating a major transformation within us. Like the crab who uses its shell as its home, defense, and identity marker, our own shells will be crashing and swaying with the waves of opposing energies during this lunation. The Moon is very comfortable in its own sign of Cancer, so take advantage of its nurturing qualities, and enjoy the ride. Be prepared to be shell-shocked!
