All the action will be centered on Thursday, It may be a difficult day for some of us. On this day, January 12th comes in addition to an unusually difficult Full Moon in Cancer. Although the Full Moon is a sign that it’s time to start winding down and typing up loose ends on projects, this one will have a few added challenges.
This Thursday’s Cancer Full Moon is part of a four- point configuration called a Cardinal Grand Cross. This means that the Sun and Moon are at cross purposes with crisis loving Pluto, a Jupiter that can exaggerate the “bad stuff”, and extreme Uranus. With all five of these planets in zodiac signs that love action, the best way to make it through this Full Moon’s minefield is to slow down and even bring things to a complete stop. Then you can regroup and refocus. By doing this you will be able to get a handle on the situation before Mercury reenters practical and committed Capricorn later on Thursday, because this stern influence asks that you conduct a serious reality check on the state of your life over the next three weeks. The amazing part of this powerful day is that it ends on a quiet note with a Venus- Neptune conjunction in Pisces. This will soften the hard edges of Mercury’s reality check and puts challenges of the Full Moon in a more forgiving light. With all this happening on the same day Thursday the 12th this is a time for you to be alert and on your toes. Be aware of anything you see in the media or in your personal life and that is will be extremely exaggerated and intense if you let it be, so try to let things flow and don’t get triggered.
Mercury having stationed Direct on the 8th doesn’t mean we’re all in the clear just yet as Mercury Retrograde storm is still in effect until the 13th.
This Full Moon in Cancer is when she can be at her most nurturing, so although we may have some rocky challenges ahead, we still have the aspects that are focused on home, family, children, and mothers. We respond by becoming more likely to express our emotions during these moons and are more sympathetic and understanding towards others. You may find your self wanting to care for others or even the whole world. During this Moon, feelings will run high so it’s important to watch out for becoming overly sensitive, dependent, or even needy. Now is a great time to putter around the house, focus on those you love and tend to domestic concerns.
Hang in there this week guys, as next week will continue to be intense with a Mars and Saturn Square!!
