Love, Joy Celebration!
Super Full Moon in Cancer, 1st January 2018 at 11 degrees.
Rarely has there been such a powerful Full Moon with so many events happening at the same time. Venus, the planet of love and harmony, reigns over this Full Moon, as she is in close aspect to both the Full Moon and the Sun in opposition, spreading love, harmony and good vibes. One of the best possible omens for the year of 2018. The Full Moon is not only extremely potent in her own sign of Cancer, which allows an openhearted free flow of love and emotion, it is also the largest and closest Full Moon to Earth in the year 2018.
This Super-Moon is launching us into the fast lane for the next two months, as it leads us not only into a potent Super Blue Moon Eclipse on the 31st January but also for the only time this year, all five major Planets will be in direct motion from the 2nd January to the 8th march. Therefore allowing the maximum free flow of dynamic energy. There is a revolutionary feel and pioneering energy, onward to new horizons, as Uranus in Aries, stations direct on the 2nd January.
Also auspicious and often associated with fate and destiny, is the positive formation the planets make together called a” Kite” in astrology. Both Powerful and beneficial.
The fateful kite formation is a big driving force pushing us along onto our destined path as key astrological aspects are now being activated.
The kite formation of Planets are working together in harmony. All the magic qualities of the kite formation are being powered into action, like a bow and arrow shooting through the apex, the Full Moon, into a flow of active, dynamic expression, resulting in the greatest power of all, the power of love.
And this is all taking place on New Year’s day; it seems the Universe is conspiring to help bring everything together so that all the pieces fall perfectly into place to give you the best possible start to the New Year.
We and those around us are capable of great shows of love and affection. Even great feats of love. It feels like world peace and harmony can reign on Earth on New Years day, even if just for a little while.
Indeed, everything is working in your favour and there is enough dynamic energy at this Full Moon to help us grasp the opportunities presented to us.
Intentions set and News Years resolutions made now are bound to succeed with this combination as well as four planets in the ambitious sign of Capricorn. It will be so much easier now to let go of all that is not serving our highest good and move on and let go with with forgiveness and love.
Yet another positive aspect is Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio conjoined together which can often bestow us with self-confidence and almost superhuman energy. Helping you to be assertive and direct about achieving your goals and desires. It is therefore important to find a positive and productive release for all of this passionate and exuberant energy. Ideal for starting anything that requires energy, initiative and courage.
However, with so much vibrating energy, It’s especially important to express our feelings and speak from the heart. We can get to the heart of any matter now. It’s Important not to hold any emotions, whether good or bad within, as they could suddenly erupt like a volcano now. We have a chance to release any toxic emotions that could otherwise harm our health and our relationships in a positive and loving way with awareness, instead of avoiding conflict. We need to be true to ourselves. Ultimately it will improve all our relationships to be more authentic and loving, by staying true to our hearts.
It’s easy to attract more love and abundance into your life now, as Venus the planet of love will be close to the Sun up until the next Eclipse in Leo on the 31st January. Venus in aspect to both the Sun and Moon is one of the best relationship aspects and also helps us to feel attractive, good and confident about ourselves . There’s plenty of fun and romance to be had now.
Now’s the time to celebrate your greatness, rise up and reclaim your power, as perhaps the most powerful planet of all, Pluto, is also conjoined to the Sun and opposite the Moon.
Many on a subconscious level are afraid of unleashing and even denying the existence of their personal power, often afraid of not fitting in, being accepted and loved.
On a collective level, this is a power to the people aspect and on a personal level, we may well become aware now, of just how often we have been giving our power away and how much this has held us back in the past. Now’s the to time to celebrate your greatness, rise up and reclaim your power.
We can break through our inner resistance and unleash our inner greatness!
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.”-Alice Walker
Saturn is asking us to use our inner and outer resources wisely, and Pluto can help us see and eliminate the unnecessary. So much of what we say and do is not essential. If you can eliminate it, you’ll have more time and more tranquility. Ask yourself at every moment, ‘Is this necessary”. We also need to be aware of our inner judgmental voice and inner critic, so that we can relax into less stress and more lightness of being.
“A man is but the product of his thoughts, what he thinks, he becomes.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Saturn in Capricorn is making sure we lay the foundations built on reality with the necessary structures in place so that, what we build, won’t crumble by the first major storm that might come our way . Together with Jupiter in Scorpio everything we do will come from a place of deep inner conviction, empowerment and authenticity.
Any issues of insecurities and self- esteem can get a major boost of confidence right now.
“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”― Lao Tzu
The Cancer Full Moon is incredibly nurturing, protective, loving and caring. We will feel a strong desire to be with our loved ones and families, finding deep fulfillment and happiness by drawing upon the love of our deepest emotional bonds.
One of the most sensitive and emotional signs, the Moon in Cancer reminds us how important it is, to stay open-hearted and true to our own feelings. To no longer perceive our sensitivity and vulnerability as weakness`s but as strength. How we need to live our lives based on love, kindness and compassion. And how we can change someone’s life with often just a simple act of kindness.
We can use our intuition and emotions to guide us, as the Moon in Cancer is the most intuitive and emotional sign of the zodiac. Where our true feelings have been suppressed, they will now make themselves known. We can only move forward and make changes when we are living our truth from our hearts.
The Sun, Venus, Saturn and Pluto, are all currently in the sign of Capricorn.There is deep wisdom to be found in the sign of Capricorn who is often referred to, as the wise old soul. We can unlock our deep inner wisdom now and step into our power by combing the truth within our hearts, spirit, mind, body and soul.
