The Cancer Full Moon is deepening emotional security. At the peak of the lunar cycle, the full moon is emotional and often reactive. It reflects hidden aspects of yourself and insights into what wants to be resolved. There is also a sense of closure and completion. It’s seeking freedom from emotional dramas, distress and completion of lessons learned.
Cancer Full Moon
Emotions are applified with the Cancer Full Moon, because the moon rules Cancer. This full moon is helping you clear the clutter of past emotional wounds and insecurities, helping you align with what helps you feel emotional secure. Hint… it’s not anything outside of you, it’s finding emotional security within through faith and trust in your higher self. Emotional security is the “place” you feel safe and at home.
This is a great full moon to reflect on relationships that nurture and build you up, and which ones tear you down. Perhaps you’re noticing co-dependent relationships or unhealthy ones. This is a perfect time set and maintain stronger boundaries that honor your emotional wellbeing. Honor yourself and tune into what and who helps you feel nurtured and loved (including self-love).
The Cancer Full Moon also relates to family. The Sun and Moon opposite each other are at a T-square with Chiron (the wounded healer) in Aries. You may be resolving old family wounds and patterns. With this square there may be insights into your specific core wounds, and steps you can take to reclaim your power. With the holidays you may feel triggered by family. Since there is a heightened polarity, it’s important to honor yourself by responding differently. The old ways of doing things are clinging to an outdated reality. To shift old patterns, stay true to yourself take a couple of deep breathes to center yourself, and simply walk away if necessary. You always have the choice to disengage from conflict by simply responding differently.
As the New Year quickly approaches, embrace new cosmic energy, be as fearless as possible. Look to new solutions to solve old issues and conflicts to bring in unity and harmony. Nothing serves you better than using your tools to restore calmness and peace. You may be tested at the Cancer Full Moon, so get ready with your tools.
