The Crystallization of New Life ~ Last Full Moon of 2018 in Cancer December 22nd, 2018

This Full Moon is very significant as it is the last one of 2018 and it sets a strong momentum for the rest of the year. Have you ever noticed how a full moon really tends to bring the emotion out of people? That’s because a Full Moon is energetically a time of opportunity to gain greater awareness. Be mindful of your inner states during this time because emotions can feel as full as the moon. This is due to the Sun being at 0° of Capricorn illuminating the moon at 0° of Cancer, a very watery, emotional and intuitive sign.

The sun enters into the sign of Capricorn the day before the full moon. Capricorn is symbolic of the father archetype and is the sign of worldly achievement, ruled by the planet of Saturn. It is the influence that causes the desire to achieve and create ourselves in the physical world and to practice hard work, discipline, and solitary pursuits for the sake of achievement and worldly status.

The polarity of Cancer and Capricorn are opposites symbolizing the dynamic of home life & career life, domestic foundation & public reputation, water & earth element, essentially they work to balance each other out.

Cancer is symbolic of the mother archetype, it’s the sign of the emotional security of having a home and family. Cancer is governed by the moon, which symbolizes the emotional memory we have from childhood along with what provides us with the emotional security we need as the foundation of our soul. The polarity together symbolizes the home that gives us our roots and nurtures us from within providing for the ability to thrive in our public lives and worldly purpose. Thus becoming someone of structure, discipline, and status in the world, similar to a tree, having strong roots provides the tree with the sustenance to grow tall and stable toward the light of the sun. With the season of Capricorn opening with a Full Moon, we can know that the season upon us will be very significant.

This full moon is illuminating the zodiac sign of Cancer and shining the light on our emotional needs, family and what we consider to be home. Home is a feeling state along with a being a physical place of safety and comfort. The moon in Cancer casts light upon our individual basic foundational needs, potentially making us aware of ways we have been neglecting nurturing our own soul. What is important to us now is feeling safe within our own beings and within our home environment.

In order to live an emotionally healthy life we must nurture our own individual needs, which varies depending on who you are! This full moon brings us in touch with what we need in order to move forward in true alignment with our soul. Think about your moon sign, or find out what it is during this full moon. It’s importance holds true for each and every single individual. Everyone has a moon sign indicating their deepest personal and innermost needs.

Home life will take on a new importance around this time and into the season of Capricorn. So if you find you are not in a place where you feel in alignment with your needs, you will feel the innate pull toward change. Cancer and Capricorn are both cardinal signs, meaning that they make things happen, they initiate and take charge. There’s a need to focus on what supports us emotionally at this time.

With Saturn and Pluto both currently in Capricorn, I can guarantee we can expect a very powerful next few weeks!

As the Sun enters Capricorn on this day there will be an energy shift to a more serious tone, where we feel a greater attention to our ambitions, responsibilities and on our worldly pursuits. Capricorn season is when we all get a little more intentional and focused on the future ahead. There is a sense of heaviness that comes with Capricorn energy, a feeling of being burdened by reality. If you feel this way during this time you may ask yourself ‘what needs to change?’. Here the Capricorn Sun influences a “getting down to business” kind of attitude. We are really more than likely focused on things that will bring us long-term results at and around this time.

Saturn is currently in its home sign Capricorn which happens only every 30 years! This energy dynamic is strongly suggesting that is time to harness the momentum of hard work and the need to go after what we desire to create in this life!

A lot of what is going to occur as we get closer to this Full Moon is karmic and based on the actions of our past. Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn is a slow-moving planet and rules over time and the compound effect of our actions and what that produces in our reality. What is surrounding you now as your life experience is based on past decisions and decisions you’ve made.

With Mars in Pisces at 23° coming into closer conjunction with Chiron, this Full Moon will begin to bring up a lot of past pain and collective wounds. Individually we will feel emotional and subconscious pains, be careful of acting from unconsciousness around this time due to Mars coming into union with Chiron. We are offered an opportunity to heal and align with our soul deeper at this time. We may become more aware of the ways we help others but neglect to help ourselves! Or give others advice where we would benefit from taking it ourselves personally. Be mindful of projecting your inner issues onto those around you, and of ignoring your emotions instead of being guided by intuition.

Mercury in conjunction with Jupiter in Sagittarius offers a message that this Full Moon will be one that makes us think differently! Be prepared to have our minds opened by this full moon energy, Jupiter expands everything it touches and Mercury rules over the mind and communication! This combo will be making a square to Neptune. Dreams are much more vivid now and our imagination has the potential of taking us in many different directions. There’s a renewed perspective on life emerging now. Ideally, our worldviews are expanding due to this transit. There’s a mentally expansive energy occurring during this time, so if you have decided to learn something new or expand your mind in some way, the universe fully supports you now. This transit, also indicates a lot of illusion, delusion, possibly confusing thoughts and behavior. Around this time, we will all be challenged in what we believe and called to take on new ways of thinking. I warn of a high chance of delusional behavior occurring at this time, so be mindful so that doesn’t become you. Instead this energy can be utilized for creative endeavors. The right brain is activated under this transit.

Under this influence, the veil between our physical world and the nonphysical dimensions becomes thinner. We are much more susceptible to psychic attack along with others energy. Our environment and our own awareness blends and we experience a sense of thinner boundaries between ourselves and others. This can be very great and very detrimental, depending on the energy you hold within. Are you in alignment with your SOUL? Your core vibration? Surrender to the new perspective making its way into your psyche. Be open and receptive to the divine forces at play at this time.

This Full Moon is the introduction to the new year where we have 2 major eclipses in the first month of 2019. The first day of the year begins with a major transit, Saturn conjunct the Sun in Capricorn, this is an indicator of a new life forming. Through persistent hard work and effort this new life will come to fruition but there is a need to get serious about your own life, to set firm boundaries and to decide what is truly important to you. There’s no better time than now to take initiative in your life experience. Make what you want to happen before time passes you by! Every day is an opportunity to change the momentum of your karma, which is essentially the decisions we make on the day that add up and gain momentum. We can all start by adding one productive habit to our daily routine, just take it one day at a time and you will see the power of consistent effort.

Thank you all for reading! Happy full moon!
