The Full Moon occurring on the first day of the new year on a Monday (Moonday) is a powerful message from the Queen of the Night. 2018 is a year of huge emotional capacity. What do I mean? Well, the full moon represents completion, consolidation, fullness, and light. When it falls on the first day of a new material cycle, we can expect that the things Cancer rules will be maximizing its “fullest” potential this year. That means that you will be much more in tune with your feelings and your emotional security will be the foundation of everything you experience this year.
The house that Cancer rules in your chart and any planets that you have in Cancer show you where you require more emotional maturity. Emotional maturity is being able to understand and manage your emotions. It enables you to create the life you desire on your own terms. You don’t self sacrifice or play the victim (typical Cancerian traits) by putting your needs on the back-burner. No, 2018 will be your time to share your unique moonglow with the world. We are also entering an 11/2 universal year which is all about owning your authenticity and learning how to share it with others. Ironically, the number 2 relates to the Moon. In order for us to own our authenticity, we must first get comfortable with the idea of confronting and sitting in our emotions- no matter how unpleasant they might be. The Moon is one of the fastest moving planets as it spends approx 2.5 days in each Astrology sign. Take this as a cue that while you may feel that you are on an emotional rollarcoaster this year, your ability to transmute your emotions into healthy positive changes will be heightened.
The Full Moon
On the day of the Full Moon we will have a grand trine with Jupiter, Mars, and Neptune- all emotional planets, which will help us to act on our feelings very easily. Mars will also be squaring the lunar nodes indicating that how we behave and respond to situations during the next two weeks will have some heavy duty karmic implications. The degree of the moon is 11, which is also the universal year we are entering in 2018. Once again the message is clear- You can get to know yourself better through your emotions. Master your emotions.
We can set material resolutions on the day of the Full Moon that has to do with how we wish to feel this year. This would be a great day to choose your power word for 2018. You may not begin to embody your power word until the Spring Equinox which is the energetic new year, and you will not see great spiritual changes until August 19 which is the spiritual new year.
Uranus stations direct on January 2nd, a day after this lunation, making it easy for us to act swiftly on our emotions. Look to see where Aries falls in your Astrology chart as this shows you the area where you can expect some breakthroughs.
The Full Moon will be a Super Moon meaning it will be closer to Earth. If you can, step outside and bathe yourself in its restorative moonbeams. Lunar light is believed to be more powerful than Solar light, as the Moon rules over both our mind and heart. When both are in sync, we have have the formula for manifestation.
The Full Moon in Cancer wants us to be more Motherly to ourselves. Nurture yourself, be receptive and open to energies and support, and be the fierce and empowered person you are.
2018 is the Year of the Moon. Stay tuned, because I will be blogging about this important year in the coming days.
