This is the final Lunation of 2018, and it really is a gorgeous one! At 0 degrees and 49 seconds , on the 22nd December, we have the Full Moon in its ruling sign of Cancer!
A significant energy cycle is activated with this last Full Moon of 2018 as we are guided to remember what is in our hearts regardless of what our ‘real world’ responsibilities may be. This Cancer Full Moon is right after the solstice, as well as at a 0-point degree, which means that change IS underway, and a new season of life is going to be revealed to us, just, as another one ends.
The Winter Solstice, which is on the 21st of December, is almost like the New Moon of the Solar Cycle, whereby, it is time to turn inward, to introspect, to seed intentions for the year ahead. Indeed, the winter solstice is from where we get the idea of ‘New Years resolutions’. Thus, the harvest of intentions from this Solstice will emerge by Spring Equinox. I would encourage everyone to not wait until the New Year to set your intentions for the New Year, but rather, take time on the Solstice to meditate and become focused on what you want to change/create/manifest in your life, because at this time, all the energy is right behind you to make it a success.
There are so many aspects to this Lunar energy that really makes now the time to seed, create and press the reset button on our lives, in so many ways.
Not only is this a strong moon because it is in Cancer, its rulership ,its especially strong because it is at 0 degrees. O degrees, represents our oneness, our unity, togetherness, reminding us that separation from the whole, is only but an illusion. Indeed, this Full Moon could highlight where on our planet inequality exists and where we are not treating everyone as our earthly brothers and sister. We are all ascending into a much more heart centred being and may all feel this energy of the collective, which in turn, can help boost our opportunity to create new beginnings. This is the second in a succession of 5 Full Moons at 0 degrees (the first being Full Moon in Gemini, at the end of November). Then we will have 3 more in January, February and March (with the one in January being an Eclipse). There really is a big reset button being hit, not only in our personal lives, but throughout Planet Earth. The 0 degree in astrology is what is known as the critical degree. It basically means we don’t have a plan, it’s a complete new start. These are very auspicious times indeed.
The Moon is about our feelings. Cancer is all about home, family, roots, security, belonging to a soul family, love and the heart. Thus, you can expect some strong emotions to come up. In essence, this energy is about nurturing yourself and others. Finding something that soothes your soul, whatever that may be for you. This Full Moon is all about coming come, yet also, about slowing down. Taking each day as it comes, appreciating each moment as it passes, knowing that the beauty is in the journey itself, and not the destination.
There is a real sense already that the energy has shifted. For some of you, you will be feeling this delicious, unknown but exciting energy and for others the energy beckons closer. For all, it will create a sense of lightness, newness and inject a spark of hope into our lives.
With the Sun trine, and the Moon sextile, to Uranus, this can bring some welcome surprises. Uranus governs freedom, stimulation, inspiration, it’s carefree, innovative, the inner genius and it helps us take risks. This energy will help you connect the dots. Maybe there has been something that you have been working on or seeking answers to, that now, with the help of this glorious energy, may help you have that ‘ah ha’ moment. This energy may also stir your heart centre and help you connect to others in a much more authentic, intimate, way. Now is wonderful time to practice the act of unconditional love, regardless of whom it is that you interact with.
The second transit to note is that Venus in Scorpio is trining Neptune in Pisces. Neptune rules Pisces. What a beautiful aspect. Venus is what we would refer to as the ‘lower dimensional love’, for example, ‘sensual love’, ‘money’, ‘pleasures’, etc., and Neptune is the ‘higher love’, so for example, ‘soul love’, ‘twin flames’, ‘deep connection’, etc. This is a very powerful energy and it happens exactly on the solstice (21st) and will affect you for the next 3 months. The energy encourages you to feel that energy of love from inside and let it overflow, through you, and out towards everyone else.
The next transit is a T square between the Sun and Moon to Kyron and Mars, which are together in Pieces. This is a very dynamic energy and one that is all about healing. Its awakening your inner sacred warrior energy. It teaches you to protect your home and family, whilst living in balance in the universe. This is literally THE perfect energy to lay to bed all those things, people and places that no longer serve you before we walk into yet another New Year.
Finally, we have a gorgeous conjunction between Jupiter and Mercury in Sagittarius, which is Jupiter’s home sign. This will help you feel joyful, expansive, wise, fun, humorous. Jupiter rules embracing everyone and everything, international events, the law, gratitude, publishing, abundance and generally expansion. So it is a really great time to expand and grow consciously with this new energy all around. This Final Lunation of 2018 is just so beautiful. It finally marks the energetic turning point for us that is based on love. We are now feeling happier, freer and more joyful. You may feel pushed to make big changes, simply because you can no longer compromise who you are or what matters the most to you. It’s a culmination of some sort of balance being brought into your life and of course, this is what the full moon represents. There is so much energy for new beginnings, expansion, going deeper into our own internal happiness and setting intentions for the coming year (so do them on the Solstice). By flowing with the energy that the Universe offers, we merge with the natural cycles of life and don’t impede their changing flow.
I will be offering a Moon Circle on the Solstice, that willbe streamed as a live feed and can be watched and used for healing, releasing and manifesting right up to 25th December. I would encourage thosewho are really looking to release and ‘start a fresh’ to join as we have the Eclipses beginning early January and it would be wonderful and beneficial to release before then.
As always, with much love.
