First FULL MOON of the year lands in the sign of Cancer. The Mother energy pours forth reminding us to take care of tender selves as we express what our hearts cannot deny.
With compassion, we are called to come out of our shells and share the truth of our hearts because through our vulnerability we will find our strength.
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from our beloved featured astrologers. First from the always wonderful PAT LILES from The Power Path.com:
“With a predominantly feminine chart and a Full Moon in responsive and sensitive Cancer, we look to our flowing from our soft inner body-our feelings, our hearts, our feminine wisdom.
“But let’s not negate that hard shell and those protective claws. We may see those in action as well.
“Cancer is the sign of the Mother archetype, the Nourisher.
“As the only sign ruled by the Moon, Cancer waxes and wanes, moods change frequently just like the phases of the Moon.
“The Moon is of the dark time, the feminine, the receptive, watery and emotionally present.
“A profound sensitivity is bestowed on Cancer, and on you during a Cancer Full Moon.
“Just as water morphs to fill its container of any shape, so Cancer responds to all surrounding influences –spoken and unspoken- and like a sponge absorbs them all.
“Cancer’s psychic abilities, foreshadowing and empathetic awareness stem from this ability to become who and what is around them.
“Security and how we meet our needs for a safe environment where we can relax into our feeling mode and expose our vulnerabilities will also be prominent at this moon…”
“There’s more to consider for this Moon. There’s a major challenge (fly in the ointment) for the Full Moon axis at 22º Cancer/Capricorn. Jupiter (22º) opposite the volatile trio of Uranus, Eris and Ceres (20-24º) is very closely squaring the Sun and Moon.
“This creates a Grand Square–an emotional crisis and opportunity. Think of a perfect square with a major planet at each corner.
“Sacred geometry that challenges us to integrate the juice of each of the four elements-earth, water, air, fire (physicality, emotionality, mentality, spirituality) all in cardinal signs those that initiate action, seek activity, align to beginnings with enthusiasm and curiosity.
“Something is trying to get our attention here; a trip wire has been laid. Can we turn it into an unexpected opportunity?
“Accept that you have to get active to bring these powerful times to fruition in your life.
“Help comes from a trine from Saturn and Juno at 22º Sagittarius. They provide the Uranus corner of the Grand Square (and the Jupiter corner too) with an outlet for all this stressful energy.
“Discipline, doing the right thing, telling the hard truth especially in your relationships, being loyal to your beliefs, championing the vulnerable, empowering your feminine values, relying on the wisdom of wise elders will all be positive actions in the face of stress and tension represented by this Grand Square…”
“Use your skillful means to guide these powerful energies to starting something you’ve never done before. Surprise and delight yourself with your boldness.
“Capricorn and its ruler Saturn are powerful manifestation juju! Did I mention the Sun sits with Pluto – main man for creating through intention, desire and strength.
“The Feminine aspect resonates so fully with a water sign Moon like Cancer, and to add to the depth of the emotional undulation is the luscious conjunction of Venus with Neptune both in Pisces…”
“Access is granted to bring into your heart all that you find yourself in resistance to, all that seems unworthy of love, all that seeks to disempower and appeal only to fear and wash it with the clearing and cleansing energy of love and compassion.
“Pisces gives you access to the full range of dimensions from the depth of the ocean to the highest spiritual realms.
“Expect your intuition and imagination to be fully engaged.
“Mars is here too in Pisces until the end of the month apprenticed to Chiron and deepening his masculine love, service and appreciation of the Feminine…”
“If emotional insecurities or challenges should surface for you at this Full Moon and anxiety, overwhelm or chaos be the result, call on the elemental healing power of water to flow through you and clear, clean and bless you to reset and begin anew.”

From CHAD WOODWARD from his Kosmic Mind:
“The deep womb of Cancer contains the seeds of imaginal thought and fantasy. It is pregnant with symbolic and unconscious meaning.
“What has been lingering just beneath the threshold of your conscious perception? Both positive and negative emotions can come bursting free here.
“You may be more empathetic or psychically sensitive than usual on the days surrounding this Full Moon climax.
“The Moon finds itself in the cross hairs of a dynamic grand cross with the Sun (and Pluto), Jupiter, and Uranus. This isn’t an easy integration to pull off.
“Naturally, it presents us with some uncomfortable reactions to some things in our lives. But the key to resolving such things is finding your way out of a stagnant situation so that you can move forward.
“With Mercury now direct and getting close to normal speed, this Full Moon awakens us out of a brief period of hibernation. You may feel more energized and confident now, more eager to begin taking steps in new directions.”
“…Cancer can build walls so high that no one can make contact from the outside. This Full Moon may momentarily tear down some walls; it could expose yourself and others to the harshness of reality.
“The intention behind it: to see and experience new possibilities and horizons and to ease our muscular armoring and let our guard down.
“That’s where Jupiter opposite Uranus comes in. It invites us out of our comfort zone to acquire new experience. Ideally, you should choose to break some of these barriers down yourself via your own volition.
“What needs to be done for this to happen? You may find that in dealing with current situations, the best choice is to back off and set things free. Allow enough space so that others can find their own way, too.
“And if you’ve been holding back your feelings about something, take a risk to express them in an open and heart-centered way.
“As the Sun and Moon come to this cyclic climax, they seek to help us discover a new way to feel and experience our lives. It could be something quite subtle, yet have an incredibly powerful effect.
“However you choose to respond to this Full Moon, ideally, choose the path of greatest change. Trust yourself and your hunches.
“Venus conjunct Neptune can romanticize and idealize others, but it can also help us make authentic soul contact, something quite rare in this digital age.
“Collectively, this is a potent moment of creative and interpersonal breakthrough. That might be hard to see at first, but trust what is unfolding around you.
“It’s attempting to lead you to higher ground. The only way to sink is to cling to the past.
“Loosen your grip and surrender to the infinite possibilities the universe has in store.”

And from the insightful PAM YOUNGHANS from her NorthPoint Journal:
“The lunation occurs at the auspicious time of 3:33 am PST (11:33 am GMT), a nice confirmation of higher intention for those who like to watch double and triple numbers.
“This symbolic image for the Full Moon comes from Martin Goldsmith, who combines the Sabian symbols with other traditional symbolic systems, in addition to drawing on as his own insight:
“Under a vine-covered pergola of an outdoor cafe, a group of intellectuals is holding a lively discussion. A woman who had previously been silent forcefully outlines her position.”
“This image seems especially pertinent, given the times we are in. People are coming forward, taking a stand, and claiming their voices in ways they haven’t before.
“Mr. Goldsmith’s descriptive phrases about this symbol show us some of the choices we have in how to work the energy of this Full Moon:
Free exchange of ideas and feelings vs. dominating or being dominated by a group
Having an ear for the views of the group, while maintaining a fiercely independent perspective
Critical discussions of the general situation
Pulling together important factors so one can decide on a wise course of action vs. ineffectually open-ended blather
“As I read this list, I am very grateful that Mercury has completed its retrograde phase and is now moving direct again!
“That should help us opt for some of the more coherent choices offered by this Full Moon, such as wisdom over blather…
“We also have assist from other planets as we work with the Full Moon energies on Thursday. Mars is positioned at a release point for the tension of the grand cross.
“Being in Pisces, the Red Planet helps us act with greater selflessness, and in accordance with our highest spiritual values.
“Compassion and understanding can be our guides and move us through potential challenges.
“Spiritual ideals are also emphasized by the Venus-Neptune alignment that occurs on Thursday.
“This planetary event represents the union of human love and Divine Love, helping us bring a higher-vibrational heart energy into all of our interactions.”
