The final moon of 2020. We made it.
We’ve had four Cancer moons this year. 2020 started with a Cancer full moon penumbral eclipse, we then had a Cancer new moon annular solar eclipse and June, another Cancer new moon in July and now we close out the year with this Cancer full moon. It’s as if the cosmos knows we’ve needed regular release to balance of all of this Capricorn and Saturnian energy we’ve had.
A fitting way to close out the year as the Sun stands strong in Capricorn trining Uranus (who’s energy will be sticking around a lot in 21) opposite a full moon in the belly of Cancer, illuminating the polarity between masculine and feminine and the changes we are turning on.
The Sun Uranus blesses us with insight as we reflect on what has happened this year (and that has been ALOT) and dream on what we desire for a new one.
With so much Saturnian energy and challenging aspects woven throughout 2020, reflections of the year past may bring up strong feelings around what we may want to change so we can nourish the areas that were dismantled, diminished or transformed.
Flat, tired, absolutely smashed? Our cups will fill up again. If this was a challenging year for you, reflect on it, feel all of the feelings while one foot is on solid ground. In an ever changing world, finding safety in regular grounding and earthing is an important practice, remaining solid like a tree while the tides of emotion move around us observing them with gentle curiosity.
New experiences are coming, hopeful futures and a different energy. But if this Cancer full moon that is closing out 2020 tells us anything, it is release, rest and nourishment. Let it go.
Can we collectively put a higher value on rest for 2021? We are of no service to ourselves or anyone else with an empty cup.
Even though the zappy energy of this full moon is not quite restful, meditation to calm the mind will prove beneficial.
Focus, will and determination is key to overcoming inaction and stagnation after a huge year for all of us. The way through into the future is by finding our personal power, and we all know that lies within.
Our inner worlds have had their fair share of digging if you peered into the crevices. Give credit where credit is due, if you’ve done some mammoth excavation, congratulate yourself, hug your heart, release and bathe under the light of this mothering moon.
Be gentle as we close this calendar year and start a new one. Don’t force anything. Let it flow.
Do what nourishes you. Which will look completely different from what nourishes someone else.
Come home to self, have a break from the internet and remember why you are here.
Remember joy. And remember that you are loved.
Congratulations for making it this far x
