January’s Cancerian Full Moon: Being Grateful – The Key To Healing The Inner Child

 In Lunar Stories by Lynda Hill

For starters, we have the Sun, the Moon, Uranus, Pluto and the north and south nodes all closely aspecting each other in a tight grand-cross configuration. This can bring stress and difficulty, but it can also bring about resolutions and release. This full Moon is smack on the Sun of the 4th July chart of the US.

I see this huge configuration as being one of releasing ourselves, but that may come about because of what is not working in our life now. This feels like a make-it or break-it period. If it’s never going to work out for you, why stick at it? If you’re banging your head against a brick wall, will you continue to do it or find a way out of your dilemma? It’s not always easy, but this feels like a very ‘karmic’ (whatever that means 🙂 ) full Moon.  It comes right near the end of the Uranus/Pluto square that has brought about so much difficulty, conflict, change, oppression, resolutions, breakthroughs, etc, over the last three or so years.

We are on the verge of the end of this particularly difficult planetary relationship and it seems we are set to integrate more and more of the lessons inherent in it. Uranus in Aries has many wondering “what about me?” – “where am I in this picture?” – “where are MY rights?” – “don’t I matter as an individual?” – etc. Pluto in Capricorn can bring up issues of the haves and the have-nots, issues of “tow the company line” – “do as you’re told” – “we hold the power and you don’t”, etc. Of course, Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Aries both have been pushing us to accept and integrate a stronger sense of our own power.

We are not meant to be slaves, we are not meant to give our power away to some huge individuals or corporations that cast shadows over our lives. We can be part of ‘the game’, but not play the game so as to lose ourselves. It’s that fine line, I guess. Saturn has also just moved out of Scorpio, bringing a sense of release of the intensity of these last few years. Of course, there is always intensity, it’s just that the magnitude of it is set to be released.
The Sabian Symbol for this full Moon is Cancer 15: A Group of People Who Have Overeaten and Enjoyed It. The following are my interpretations taken from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom. How apt is this full Moon degree right after the holiday season and the new year?
