Full Moon at 27 degrees Cancer

The Moon turns full in its home sign, Cancer, opposing the imperative to purge demanded of dwarf planet Pluto conjoining the Sun in the last degrees of Capricorn. When Pluto is involved
in a Full Moon you can be assured that emotional clearing is the order of the day. As Full Moons give you the opportunity to clear out and release what is no longer needed, when Pluto is involved the clearing will be deep and potentially raw. Cancer is the sign most connected with the home – your home, both where you live in the physical and, even more importantly, where you live internally and emotionally.
Don’t be surprised if you feel an obsessive (Pluto is known for obsession) need to clear files, cabinets, closets, maybe even your car (my traveling purse), and relationships that no longer align with your values, your needs, and your priorities. No need to make anyone and or anything wrong in the process of clearing out. More important to know what and who can support you in this powerful time of shifting and re-alignment we are all going through collectively, and you are undoubtedly going through personally.
Plutonian energy always reminds me of the skin-shedding of snakes. It’s got to be pretty intense to slither out of an old skin, the underlying skin bigger and shinier, able to hold the growth of the snake. You are growing every moment in every way. Stay aware of your growth edge and what you need to nurture yourself through the process of your own evolution. I highly suggest dry-brushing of your skin before
you shower followed by loofah cleansing. Exfoliating externally helps you to slough off on the inside.
Cancer supports you feeling your feelings, which could be intensely intense these days. Feelings pass. Perspectives require adjusting. Minor hassles need not turn into catastrophes. What is truly important to you becomes clearer as you feel through the many layers of your emotional realities. Watch where you focus your attention and keep re-directing your attention to what you want to experience. Your focus changes as you change it. I used to dwell in lots of drama. I even searched it out, uncomfortable with the humdrum. Now I relish the humdrum and resist any call to engage in drama. It’s an internal choice and process, a shift in my focus of attention I have been working on for years. I probably will be refining these tools as long as I live and breathe. If you’re a Plutonian type, as I am, and even if you’re not, this Plutonian-flavored Full Moon will call you into its transformational pull. Constant vigilance is required to manage the intensity of release and growth. I had to learn to work with this energy, which I have done, and continue to do, with teachers and wiser ones than me. Seek out your guides and teachers to support you in your own growth and release. I can suggest healers- drop me a line!
Mercury is full on retrograde, in case you haven’t noticed! Mercury will be moving retrograde through February 4, 2022. Resist the urge to be annoyed with Mercury’s mischief, which seems endless these days. Best to not push through anything the rest of this month. Cuddle in. Snuzzle in. Wait for the internal directive to move slowly through your own process of growth and release.
Uranus is moving direct. Earth changes are happening. Hold onto your hat and know you are incarnated to be part of this big show. You get to choose the part you’ll play in this massive re-birth on our beloved planet, our home. Much of the work starts internally so use this month to nurture your inner sanctuary.
Venus is moving retrograde back through Capricorn until she stations Direct at 11 degrees Capricorn on January 29. Venus is moving quite slowly right now creating a most perfect time to re-evaluate your Venusian needs. What delights? What feeds your Divine Feminine? What supports you
in attracting exactly what you wish to experience? Work with Venus as she shows in your birth chart
and as she transits Capricorn at FEED YOUR VENUS.
