On Christmas Day, while many are still nestled in their beds at 3:11 AM Pacific Standard Time, the Moon will exactly oppose the Sun for Full Moon. In that totality, the Moon will be in the sign of Cancer. Cancer is the first water sign in the progression of the signs beginning with Aries. Here we enter the realm of emotion. Like the ebb and flow of the ocean tides, our emotions flow and shift from moment to moment responding to the hearts whims. We feel, we love, we cry, we laugh as the energy passes through us. Cancer is affiliated with the Crab. Crabs live in the Sea and have a hard shell. These shells protect the soft tender inside, while still allowing for a constant connection to the environment. Once they have outgrown the shell, they grow a new one. It is an evolving, changing dynamic that requires flexibility dependent on what is best for that time. As we gather with family and friends today on this day of celebration, gratitude, gifts, food, wine and song, we have a real opportunity to engage with our hearts. The Moon will be flowing in connection to Neptune, the Planet of the Dream, the Mystic. As we open to the enchanted stories of the Season, of Santa and his elves delivering gifts on his sled carried in the sky by reindeer and the story of the birth of Jesus and the miracles with the three wise men, we can feel the energy of Neptune. Neptune calls in the divine, the energy of that which we cannot see, yet also can see if we look with our dream glasses or let go to feel a connection to that which lies beyond us yet inside us. If you try to define “spirit” you enter this transpersonal realm. So our hearts are led by this sensitive emotional Moon today and we have a charge to connect into the magic and bliss of Neptune, what could be more apropo for this day! We have the grounding and realistic Sun in the Earth sign of Capricorn, so I don’t think we will be trying to make our own sleighs and jump from the rooftops but the balance of energy to keep those emotions stabilized is welcomed. Pluto and Mercury are near each other, keeping the communications real with some caution to watch that we don’t say something we don’t mean in a moment of intensity. With Jupiter coalescing with Mercury, we may feel a jubilance and excitement when we chat, reminisce of holidays, and gather with loved ones. Wishing you all a lovely and joyous holiday today- may magic and love fill your hearts!
