The first full moon of 2017, in Cancer, the sign of security and emotional needs. This moon is in direct opposition to the sun in Capricorn, ruler of work and the processes that take place outside of our hearts and minds. Uranus and Jupiter are opposite each other and also in the mix with this lunation, forming a grand cross. Jupiter represents expansion and morals (in Libra right now, it may be highlighting these issues in the realm of relationships, justice, and balance) while Uranus represents unexpected and sudden changes. This full moon and the days surrounding it may be filled with a lot o high energy and tension, which might feel overwhelming. However, when something is placed under tension and high energy, its strength is tested and we are able to see what needs to be fixed or changed. A revolution is brewing, both inside of us and in the world at large, and we are in a state right now of escalation and build-up; darkness rises into the light so we can come to see the truth of what surrounds and lies before us. While pressure and tension may be amplified at this time, it is only so we can grow and see what needs to crumble and what needs to stay. Pay attention to your intuition, be mindful to be kind to yourself and others, and ride the waves and ripples of the universe unfolding around you. This is not a moon of work and action, but of watchfulness and consideration. Trust that you can handle whatever is happening now and that it will ultimately lead you to a stronger and healthier place if you allow and intend for positive growth. Let go of your attachment to the appearance of the outcome. The trick is to surrender to the flow!
