Full Moon in Cancer

Tonight the moon becomes full in the constellation of Cancer.
The moon is *exalted* or most comfortable in the watery abode of Cancer, the Crab…where its emotionality and fluidity are most easily expressed; so don’t be surprised if you have felt overly sensitive in the days prior and after a Cancer moon, which happens 9 to 10 times a year-
and especially the Cancer Full Moon!

The Cancer Full Moon contains the frequencies of the Great Mother; nurturance, sustanance, protection, caring and love. Tonight is a good time to meditate on the fullness and abundance of the Mother aspect of G*d. How does the Universe provide for you? How do you nurture yourself?
Can you do your domestic chores with love in your heart for yourself and the way you take care of your own needs? Do you allow yourself to indulge in self pampering and rewards for work well done, or do you shun all forms of hedonism? Or, on the other hand do you go overboard on the hedonism aspect of self-indulgence or self-serving behavior? It’s important to reach a balance.

Did you know that the Sun is always in opposition to the Full moon? It makes sense, if you think about it, astronomically. The Sun is in the sign of Capricorn tonight. Capricorn energies include the Great Father, the provider, protector and defender. Capricorn, the sea-goat, is an archetype of the Great Search, as the sea-goat plumbs the depths as well as scales the heights, of our subconscious terrain. Capricorn has to do with traditional ways of doing things, institutions and paternity. The song, “That’s Just the Way it Is” comes to mind. It’s time to tear down the walls of traditions that no longer serve the interests of the people they were designed to serve! Can we open our hearts and minds to creating new ways of thinking about education, banking, insurance, health care and marriage? Creating a new paradigm that serves all of mankind is the Great work of our time!

Capricorn begs us to ask ourselves, How do we face our deepest fears? Do we contain the Courage to Continue when all looks dark? Do we feel the Loving presence of the Divine behind us in all our endeavors? What does our inner Self feel protected by? Do we wear masks or does our light shine forth from within?

The combination of the energies of the Great Mother meeting the Great Father reminds me of a powerful work I did in 1989.  I found a book called, “Reparenting Yourself“. I think very few of us believe that we had/have ideal parents. I always felt like I had another ‘real’ parent who dropped me off on the doorstep of a pair of very young, inexperienced people, neither of which were ready to become my parents. My mother didnt need to tell me, but she did, that I was more mature than she was, [when I was in grade school] and that she would never grow up! A tinkerbell, if there ever was one!

The basics of Reparenting is to use your imagination to develop a character, in all her fullness, of the mother you wish you would have had. You can use magazine images, feelings, sensations, and all of your senses, to create this ideal parent.
Then you are to dialogue with her. Tell her all of your worries, cares, concerns, wishes and regrets. Tell her what you really NEEDED as a child and young adult. Feel her embrace you with everything you have ever wanted from a mother, a mentor and a Goddess.
Imagine the life you would be leading today if she were there for you now ~ then go LIVE IT that way!   <3

Do the same thing for your ideal Father. What would he have looked like? Sounded like? What advice would he have given you? What financial, emotional and physical support would he have lent you?
Dialogue with the ideal Father, the holy Father, the God. Tell him what you expected of him as a child, what you wish for today and what archetypal energies of his, you want to live on, in you, as his legacy……and then~
go LIVE that way! <3

Tonight, stand under the light of the Full Moon.
Fill yourself with the balanced energies of the Great Mother and Father.
Feel their embrace around you. Feel them living within you!
And become the ideal you wish to be!
Walk in beauty. Walk in truth. Walk in Love!
~Namaste’
