On 17 January there will be a Full Moon in Cancer at 27°, which will oppose Pluto and Venus retrograde in Capricorn...
With the moon as Cancer’s natural ruler, this sign is strongly associated with the notion of family, intuition and our emotions.
The Mother and Father of the Zodiac
This full moon will activate the axis of Cancer and Capricorn, which represents the Mother and Father archetypes in the zodiac. This means that on a personal level, we will be revisiting our childhood memories and delving deep into the disparity between the ways in which we would have wanted to be nurtured in our youth and how we were actually raised.
The Best and Worst of Cancer
At best, Cancerians are nurturing, gentle and have profound healing abilities. At worst, Cancer energy lends itself to emotional outbursts, clinging to the past and being overprotective.
The Full Moon opposite Pluto and Venus
Full moons indicate a situation being illuminated and reaching a conclusion. With the full moon’s opposition to Pluto, the planet of death and rebirth, and Venus, the planet of love and relationships, there is a unique opportunity for us to confront and heal anything that occurred in our childhood or in a relationship, that we are ashamed of and let it go once and for all.
Healing for the Collective
At a collective level, Cancer represents our capacity for compassion and healing. The full moon’s opposition to Pluto and Venus is forcing us to address the ways in which women and the divine feminine have been mistreated and controlled - subtly or physically. Society is being urged let go of its desire to control feminine energy through the usage of sex, domination and humiliation.
Now is the time for deep healing at a collective level through compassion, love and by nurturing ourselves and each other.
