We are approaching the Full Moon of the Cancer cycle. And just as the First Quarter of last week was paired with a few unusual comic events that made it more challenging on an energetic level, we can expect this Full Moon to be «interesting».
Full Moons carry inner tensions by nature because this is the point where the Sun (our personality) and the Moon (our emotions) are in exact opposition. The positioning of the two is therefore experienced as if we were pulled apart between our mundane self and our spiritual self. The challenge lies there: how and where those two realities meet within us?
The Full Moon is about energetic/emotional release. Everything that what accumulated during the first two weeks of the cycle (since the New Moon) on an emotional level is brought to fruition to be released. This is why Full Moons are often associated with emotional flare-ups: we literally are wearing our emotions on our skin.
With all the recent major cosmic events, this one, combined with an occultation (eclipse) of Pluto by the Moon (I’ll come back to this in another post), is promising to take the emotional release on a whole other level… this may be good in terms of cleansing, but we must stay aware of the fact that this means a lot of releasing of deep emotional issues at the same time, which are rooted in our family history (more details in my upcoming post about the Cancer cycle). This might be a very good time to breathe in and out deeply and to pause often. Protect yourself against yourself; protect yourself against others. If situations call for clarifications, try to weight your words: they are powerful energy carriers.
Here is what we are looking at for this upcoming Full Moon:
The Sun in 12+ degree of Cancer in the 9th House (personal value system, self-expansion, exploring new horizons) is bringing control issues to the surface and highlight the tendency of humans to believe in their own personal supremacy. The position of the Sun suggests the surfacing of issues of willpower, stubbornness and determination. At its best, this can manifest as an exceptional potential for self-discipline, self-control, responsibility and inner strength. The more negative expression could take the form of «ruthlessness and tyrannical behaviour and a refusal to cooperate with others». (D.Roche, Sabian Symbols)
While our Sun-personality is pulling us into the direction of acting out of our ego-based willpower, the Full Moon invites us to respond by embracing our spiritual nature and by letting our ego being dissolved by the Divine Will. The Full Moon in 12+ degree of Capricorn is under the theme of Magic and «speaks to the strength and comfort an individual experiences when he realizes that he is not adrift or alone in the universe but is inseparably with is creator. It also speaks to the miracle of spiritual transformation that comes with awareness.» The emphasis here is on the release of material bondage and of limitations from the physical realm. It’s about learning to trust the Divine will and let go of our ego-based willpower.
The highest expression of this symbol is an «extraordinary ability to make things happen according to personal will and desire through an affective alignment with the power of the universe» (D.Roche, Sabian Symbols). The more negative expression is pure delusion of adequacy.
The first two weeks of this cycle have been a little bit challenging energy wise. How have you experienced it?

Ah - I can FEEL this release of emotional energy!!! How good that I have come across this now BEFORE my Full Moon meditation :-))) The energies can be felt up to two days after the Full Moon, right? I will release it all very concisously now, lol! And SURRENDER my personal will to DIVINE Will and Intention!
Learning to navigate the waves of emotional ups and downs through LOVE ...
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for this most interesting post, dearest Julie!
Thanks Julie and thanks Sonja :-) This evening my heart is beating stronger, in my deep i have a kind of happiness, the sensation is like when we meet someone we love, the heart smiles! I'll put on my window my crystals and stones, i'm sure the fool moon will cleanse them from old energy making them receptive to the new one.
LOve Pure Light and Joy
Thank you for sharing this Patrizia! Lovely image of nurturing a smile in our heart, with tenderness and care.
Funny, i have put all my crystal grids in front of the window too... awaiting this Full Moon and her cleansing, refreshing and healing energy.
I'm feeling quite emotional today, and I'm very grateful to be able to connect with others through this lunar energy...
Love, Light and Blessings
Forgive me for the wrong word 'fool moon' instead of 'full moon' ! Moon it's not foolish!! :-)
The Danburite that i wear on my neck, i feel has been well recharged! My window was open all night long, but no animals came in, i asked protection to AA Michael.
Dear Julie, i don't know where do you live, i wish you have an amazing day filled with strong energy and Love!
Oh thank you my dear Patrizia! Your energy did reach me. I went for a nice walk under the Sun today, and at some point i looked up at the sky, and there was a perfectly shaped heart in the clouds ! :-)
