Full Moon 27 Degrees of Cancer ~ January 17, 2022

We are going to want to carefully monitor our feelings as we get closer to the Cancer Full Moon.

Now of course in life there are many reasons to feel the height of emotions. Just watching what is

happening around us is more than enough these days, let alone experiencing our own families and friends ups and downs. There have been so many losses on many different levels over the last 2 years it is hard to put these feelings into simple words but I will do my best.

When the Moon is Full in her own sign of Cancer we are looking to be comforted or to comfort others. A simple way this might show up is we find ourselves opting to stay home and nesting instead of being out and about and social. 

This Full Moon is tightly connected to the transiting Lunar Nodes, they represent humanity’s collective purpose. The signs the Nodes are in Taurus and Scorpio has us focusing on our changing values, what is important to us now as well as how we are transforming and changing over time. The Lunar Nodes will be in Taurus and Scorpio for the coming 18 months so this will be the collective focus, growing and hopefully evolving. January’s Cancer Full Moon is activating these positions for all of us.

This Full Moon is also closely connected to Pluto who is the ruler of Scorpio, the sign the South Node is in currently in. Let me tell you what it means with Pluto involved.

So we have the Sun conjunct Pluto with the Full Moon opposite to it. Pluto is where are growing and evolving, transforming and releasing. As a nation here in the United States we have had some dark days because we are in the mists of the Pluto return. 

The transiting South Node represents the collective path to leave behind, the shadow elements of Scorpio. For example unskillful ways to use Scorpio being power hungry, disruptive, violent, extremism, jealous, cruel, vindictive suspicious distrustful deceptive. We need to move beyond a lot of these things as a nation and personally. It will take a few years before we can truly see what the Pluto return means for the United States and if you are having personal transit by Pluto then the same goes for you too.
