Full Moon in Cancer, January 15, 2014

Full_Moon____by_MichiLauke© Michi Lauke

Though not quite as intense as the New Moon in Capricorn on January 1, this Full Moon at 25° 58′ Cancer on 15 January 2014, 08:83 PM PST is still strongly cardinal and tilted towards earth and water. What was set into motion on the New Moon is up for evaluation now.

Saturn in Scorpio teams up with the luminaries via a trine to the Cancer Moon and a sextile to the Capricorn Sun. Saturn brings a gentle but firm presence to the table. If we need help handling our many responsibilities or figuring out the next step to take, Saturn is our “go to” guy. Family issues tend to come out of the woodwork on this lunation and with Saturn present we may finally be able to resolve some of the stickier ones. Patience and good listening skills are still very necessary.

Of course my favorite aspect in this Full Moon chart is Mercury in Aquarius sextile Uranus in Aries! Brilliance and originality just ooze from this one. You need to come up with a truly unique solution? This is the aspect to help you do it. Aquarius is noted for being able to think outside the box and Uranus in Aries is the perfect partner to take those ideas one step further. This one is a big kiss to all you fire and air sign folk out there who have been in need of a boost!

The course of True Love is in for a few bumps and bruises now. Mars in Libra is the apex of a cardinal T-Square with Venus in Capricorn opposite Jupiter in Cancer as the base. Libra’s ideas about fairness and equity in relationships could run into the hidebound traditions of the Cancer-Capricorn axis with dramatic results. Ferocious arguments may ensure and result in some people choosing not to speak to each other for awhile. The key for preventing the worst outcome is a harmonious sextile to Venus from Saturn in Scorpio. Rather than making a bunch of assumptions based on emotions rather than facts, take time to quietly and respectfully talk things out. Not a good time for pitching fits and slamming doors in people’s faces.

The Uranus-Pluto square is not as actively involved in this lunation for which I am profoundly grateful. We’ve had those two big boys interfering in our lives enough in recent weeks. Another planet who continues to sit on the sidelines for now is Neptune in Pisces. However if you have personal planets or an Ascendant in the cardinal signs from 8° to 11° or in the mutable signs at 3°, you are probably dealing with these planets anyway.

Spend this Full Moon in Cancer with family or contemplating your place within your family traditions. Please remember family doesn’t have to be related by blood either. Families can form based on shared experiences, ideals and simply love. Celebrate the connections you feel with others, no matter how they have evolved.

On a personal note: The closest aspect this Full Moon makes to my chart is the lunar axis to my Scorpio Ascendant-Taurus Descendant with the Sun falling in my third house and the Moon in my ninth. Nice and innocuous. I’ll take it!

My Libra Moon will probably still be catching flack from the waning cardinal T-Square. Both Mars and Jupiter are pulling away from exactly aspects to my Moon whilst Venus makes a waxing square. Maintaining emotional balance is the ongoing challenge. Stressful.

    Got a feeling this may be the point I decide to give up this job and put my month notice in. There is a definite need for liberation of sorts to a more venus inspired role. Hmmm xox

      Hey Kaz! :D

      Oh I can see that! Lunar axis harmonizing with your 10th house Neptune + Mercury in Virgo (ruler of your 6th house) & Jupiter in Cancer trine your MC. Here’s to positive change!

        It seems like a mad idea, but also so very right. I feel the Universe is just scratching it’s head like ‘why are you stil there?’ very unusual feeling

  • acquagal

    so the last full moon at 25 degrees gemini was conj my natal DC exact. this one is still in my natal 7H, and conjunct my progressed DC exact.

    • Diane L

      Hi acquagal!
      this one is still in my natal 7H, and conjunct my progressed DC exact.

      Looks like the emphasis on seventh house relationships continues for you. I really like Saturn’s supportive role in all of this too. :)

    Happy New Year from across the pond!

      Hey Rossa! :D :D

      A very Happy New Year to you too! Saturn is going to be stationing on your MC which means he’ll be sitting within a degree from mid-February until April before slipping back into your 9th until October. Busy time! Enjoy Venus passing back & forth over your ASC. *grin*

    I’m looking forward to this! Ever since the New Moon, I feel very solid & stable, which is grand. There have been a few incidents which have rocked my boat (in dramatic fashion!!)but I’ve been able to right myself quicker than I think I ever have before. Things will keep turning as they are wont to do but I have something in possession that I’d been missing for a very long time: confidence.

      Excellent! Having Pluto stomping back & forth over your Moon the past few years had to have been rough at times but that is now officially history! **waves goodbye to pluto** Learning experiences can be over-rated IMO. LOL

      Have a great year! :D

    I’m not looking forward to this full moon, try to hide away from the world if possible! it will perfectly square my Libra Sun conjunct Mercury BUT favorable to my Pisces moon… then there are all the other aspects from those Capricorn planets transiting my 1st house…YUK!!
    If I could leave earth and be on another planet??

    • Diane L

      Hi Rodney!
      it will perfectly square my Libra Sun conjunct Mercury BUT favorable to my Pisces moon… then there are all the other aspects from those Capricorn planets transiting my 1st house…YUK!!
      Yeah . . . not fun stuff. This one can feel like being caught in the middle of a parental argument. Always hated that myself. :(

      Hang in there!

        Thanks Diane,
        I’ve learned to be internally stronger after Saturn went over my Libra/Mercury conjunction back in 2012 and its the ruler of my ascendant too. Karma is fun is’nt it? :)

        • Diane L

          Nothing quite like Saturn conjoining those very personal planets to put him stamp on your face! :) He is currently sitting on the midpoint between my natal Mars-Mercury conj in Scorpio. Won’t quite make it to my ASC before going Rx. That comes later in the year.

    Thanks Diane!
    This one occurs in my first house loosely conjunct my north node and exactly square natal pluto in 4th. Sounds interesting…

      I take it the lunar axis roughly aligns with your Nodal axis? Could be one of those times when you learn more about where you need to be headed in this life. Have fun! :P

    This full moon conjuncts my 25 cancer ascendant exactly. It also trines my MC 26 pisces and saturn in 5th 28 scorpio. I’ve no idea what could happen! Nothing in particular was initiated at the new moon apart from me putting putting an end to stuffing my face and heading back to work after the christmas holidays…same as everyone else I suppose! My progressed moon is currently at 19 cancer if that has relevance?

      Those times when a Full Moon aligns with our ASC-DES axis, we are often drawn into the public eye in some way. Looks like the attention will be very favorable though not particularly demanding (Full Moon creates a Grand Trine with your natal MC & Saturn).

      I use very tight orbs for progressed planets & the only transiting planet aspecting your pMoon is an opposition from Venus in Capricorn. Looks OK to me as Mars in Libra is just a little too far out of orb. :D

    Yay…sounds very positive! Thanks Diane, il report back with anything notable!

    Happy full moon to you :-)
