Full moons are a time of culmination and illumination. At this time we are brimming over with energy, with fullness and emotion. What is being shown to you and what is it that you are experiencing?
This month’s full moon falls on the Cancer-Capricorn axis. We might experience heightened emotion around our work, and in our home and familial relations.
If we can observe the emotions and tensions around our relationship to our work, with our emotional lives, and our loves ones, we can better make adjustments between our responsibilities in the world, and with our emotional and home lives.
Do you feel a sense of belonging in the world, in your family and in your work? Does your work nourish yourself and others? Does your work reflect who you truly are, or want to be? Where is there a conflict between your home/family life and your responsibilities and work in the world?
We can use the emotional awareness of this full moon time to create a space that honors our need for belonging, connection, nourishment and support. This is true for our emotional lives and inner experience, as well as feeling a sense of belonging and achievement in the world.
Think back to the Winter solstice of last year, and to the vision of your life that you had then. What resolutions and intentions did you set for this year? If we have not managed to keep our resolutions, this full moon offers a review and opportunity to get clear and back on track with what we envision for ourselves.
One of the gifts of this full moon is the ability to see, with a sober, clear and realistic eye, the emotional patterns and beliefs that hold us back. The potential, with moon conjunct to Pluto is an opportunity for a powerful clearing away and transformation of all that no longer serves us.
Another gift of this full moon day is the brilliant pairing of the bright and beautiful Venus, conjunct to lucky Jupiter. Having seen and worked with our emotional realities, and coming to terms with our visions and goals, we can get back on track as Venus and Jupiter encourages us to believe in, creatively live and express our dreams.
