ART: MYSTIC MAMMA
Cancer FULL MOON on January 4th /5th ignites a time of activation. Emotions rise to the surface, so tuning in to our innermost feelings and allowing for healthy flow and expression of them is key. Liberation awaits on the other side so move with the changes and try to find balance amidst the rising tides…
Here are the MYSTIC MAMMA Astral Insights from our beloved featured astrologers. First from the illuminating DIVINE HARMONY:
“The first Full Moon of 2015 is exact on Sunday January 4th at 8:53pm PST…”
“This Full Moon is actually a Grand Cross Full Moon- which means there are planets in all the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) and they are all squaring or opposing each other…”
“This brings up crisis points but also the potential for major realization, aha moments and inner or outer shifts in our personal lives, relationships, home/family situations and career or life purpose.
“This is not a light and casual Full Moon! It it kicking off 2015 in a big way- with focus on what needs to shift, change, transform, end and/or be released in our lives.
“We can use this Full Moon to get clarity on where we are holding on and what we need to let go of- and because the Full Moon is in emotional Cancer part of what we need to let go of is our emotional attachment to the past.
“The Full Moon is also conjunct Sirius- a very powerful fixed star that many ancient cultures have mythology about. There is a connection with sirius to Higher Consciousness- and to ancient beings that came from this star system to earth a very long time ago to help us evolve and grow. Sirius helps us to make the mundane sacred- so it is a fixed star that bridges worlds.
“With Sirius on the Grand Cross Full Moon, we have amazing opportunities to access Higher Wisdom and Higher Love– all we have to do is be open and receptive to it this week.
“With the Moon opposite Pluto and the Sun, deep transformative energies are afoot. But there is also potential for intensity, power/control dynamics in relationships and shadowy Unconscious behavior coming up to be address.
“The best use of Pluto energy is self-empowerment and self-transformation. So this is not a time to give away your power or lord it over others- it is a time to center within yourself, own your own shadow and Light, and focus on the only being you have any control over- yourself!
“The other very significant feature of this Full Moon is Uranus conjunct the South Node and Pluto square Uranus and the nodes. This T-square between Uranus, Pluto and the nodes will be exact in the second half of January and it is extremely potent.
“Uranus on the South Node points to our ability to break free from karmic patterns and the past– but it also points to our addiction to the past and the strength and courage it will take for us to break free. Dark Moon Lilith is also conjunct Uranus and the South Node- so deep, intense energies are afoot and we need to be aware of our need to be in control or to dominate others.
“Anger and rage that comes up at this time needs to be consciously worked with- not Unconsciously expressed… it is key to think wisely and to not act rashly or impulsively. Actions taken consciously and with awareness of the long term consequences will be rewarded down the line- mark my words!
“The most harmonious aspect this Full Moon makes is a trine to Chiron, the wounded healer, pointing to the deep potential for emotional healing and clearing that is accessible to us all at this Full Moon.
“The Full Moon may bring up A LOT, but Chiron shows that if we stick with it and move through what arises rather than shut it down, deny it and pretend otherwise- we can come out the other end healed, cleansed and expanded in our awareness of why things are happening they way they are in our lives.
“There are several asteroids to take note of that are significant in the Full Moon chart. Saturn is parallel Kassandra- showing us that we want to master our intuition and psychic gifts, not repress them, control them or fear them. This goes for us and this also goes for the oracles and prophets of the world.
“Both Mercury and Venus are conjunct Icarus, who flew to close to the Sun and got burnt to a crisp. Icarus echoes the energy of Uranus on the South Node- we need to be careful and not impulsively or restlessly do things that will cost us at this time. Pluto contra parallel Phaethon also echoes this- as Phaethon can point to recklessness and being out of control.
“We need to be aware of taking on more than we can handle or biting off more than we can chew. Finding the middle of the road is key– yet the high energy of the Grand Cross Full Moon can make it hard to steer clear of extremes.
“Last but not least Neptune is parallel Bacchus- the Greek God of ecstasy and wine. This is great for mysticism and spirituality- but there can also be an excessive desire to check out, be in denial and avoid intense feelings that are up by turning to addictions (drugs, food, alcohol, shopping, internet- whatever you use to check out or tune out can be classified as an addiction). So awareness is key!
“Another significant point in the Full Moon chart is the fact that the Sun/Moon midpoint is conjunct the South Node and Uranus. This points to HUGE karma- and our need to deal with the karmic past in order to grow.
“There is no escaping it- and the Sun/Moon midpoint on the South Node can almost feel like a black hole pulling us in towards the past. It will take much courage and strength to resist that pull and to choose a different path/action/thought or belief. And yet doing this sets the tone for the year- so it is necessary to get started off on the right foot!”

From the insightful MOLLY HALL from Astrology.About.com:
“A Full Moon in Cancer at this 14th degree enters the dynamic tensions of the Uranus-Pluto square…”
“This can be a loony lunar peak — stand by for moments of irrationality or lashing out. Feelings have concentrated potency, making this a superb to honor their messages.
“What comes up now is the emotional reality and impact of all this metamorphosis. Listen to your messages for what’s needed now, to soothe frayed nerves, or fill up the well. Maybe for you, it’s time for stronger boundaries in your relationships.
“A Sun-Pluto conjunction activates a deep, deep drive for total renewal. And any outbursts of raw energy brought on by the cardinal big squeeze can be cathartic, and freeing.
“The frictions of the Sun-Pluto to Uranus, and playing off the Moon, are powerful enough to shake off old realities, and make a break for it. There’s a matter-of-factness to it, that of ‘not looking back.’ Of resisting the temptation to revert to the status quo, and a drive to push into new ground.
“The Sun-Pluto (in Capricorn) side here brings to the fore a sense of deep purpose. It’s possible to tune in to a sense of purpose — areas to put concentrated energy into, for a long term reward….”
“If there are gaps between your true feelings, and the pressure to repress or hide them, the dam breaks at the Full Moon. This can be a shocking experience, but also lead to more emotional authenticity.
“A time for great growth in relationships, with raw truths exposed and integrated. And relief as a new ground settles that feels truer, without needing to pretend to feel something you don’t, or bottle things up.
“Financial issues may come to a head, with all the fears that ride in with them — about security, the future, or taking care of those you love. Nurture yourself through any emotional waves, and let them find their way to integration.
“It can feel messy and chaotic, before the waters calm again. There can be emotional catharsis at this Full Moon. Dance it, draw it, write a story about it, or walk it out (by the ocean, in the forest or park).”
“Reach out to those you can be real with…This is a Full Moon to soften defenses, and revive the magical child with its wide-eyed wonder and vulnerability. The child rests assured that there is a mature counterpart on watch, alert to what’s happening and capable of making wise choices.”

From the wonderful KELLEY ROSANO:
“The Full Moon in Cancer is engaging your conscious awareness to the profound shifts you have made internally deep within self.
“These changes are revealed through the external events that have or are occurring in your life. These are moving, changing jobs and evolving your beliefs. Letting go of what no longer serves your life path destiny. This is the call of the hour…”
“The Cancer Full Moon message is to do what supports your balance. Strive to be balanced in your male and female energy. This will support you. This will empower you. Your creative genius will bloom.
“It is time that we create new archetypes for men and women. These will allow for your authentic living. The freedom to be who you really are is the New Age dawning. Male is not better than female. Female is not better than male. We are made of both…”
“…The Cancer Moon is reminding you to use your feelings to guide your life. What you think and feel matters. Feelings are your indicators in every moment. Feelings don’t lie. Feelings are never right or wrong. Feelings are the best part of you. Your power lies in what you do with your feelings.”

From the wise CATHY PAGANO from her Wisdom of Astrology:
“This intense Full Moon connects us once again with the ongoing Pluto/Uranus square, as well as with the lunar nodes. We again find ourselves at a crossroads of consciousness. Will we revert back to our old ways of thinking and doing or will we step into our power and actually create the life we crave?”
“…This Cancer Full Moon wants us to pay attention to our real needs and passions. This potent combination says that the choice is ours—will we align with our soul’s purpose or continue to sleep-walk through life as a servant of patriarchy and corporate consumerism?
“If you are bold and brave enough, you will accept Uranus in Aries’ challenge to bring your own unique talents and blessings out into the world. While Pluto joins the Capricorn Sun and opposes the Cancer Moon, Uranus squares (90*) them, (the Sun on Jan. 3rd/ the Moon on Jan 4th) challenging the old outer structures and emotional body patterns that keep our life going in the same direction. It is a wake-up call—don’t sleep through it!”
