Greater Emotional Responsibility & Self-Alignment


This week’s headline items: Uranus’ Station has us feeling its energies at a greater intensity all week. On Monday, the Full Moon in Cancer becomes exact, and Mercury’s Station phase ends. On Tuesday, Uranus goes direct — ending its Retrograde — and the Moon Nodes switch from Gemini/Sagittarius to Taurus/Scorpio. On Wednesday, the Sun changes signs from Capricorn to Aquarius and Venus starts to slow down (station), slowly coming to the end of her Retrograde phase. Last but not least, on Sunday, Venus’ station intensifies as the planet slows down even further.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday evening (for a little over 4 hours); Thursday very early morning (for almost 6 hours); and Saturday afternoon (for almost 2.5 hours).

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, January 17th:

Monday, the Moon remains in protective, nurturing Cancer until 11:03pm EST. With this Moon placement, we are more sensitive to what people say to (and about) us, so be kind to yourself and others. Emotional safety is important to us at this time: We like connecting to the familiar, home or family becomes our sanctuary.

Nurture yourself and others, but remember: Make sure your glass is filled before letting others drink from it — otherwise we might start resenting others for draining our energies.

Monday evening, at 6:48pm EST, the Moon opposes the Sun in almost 28 degrees of CancerThe entrance of the Moon into Cancer late in the morning of Jan. 15th began the energetic build-up towards this Full Moon. Relationships of all kinds are highlighted during this time — but with this Full Moon, there is a particularly strong emphasis on family- and business-relationships. If you are already a Member of my online community, feel free to click here and watch my Full Moon video for more details.

Lots of planets are involved in this Full Moon chart — Mercury and Venus are both Retrograde, while Uranus is exalted, and will come to a halt only 15.5 hours after the Full Moon becomes exact. Neptune supports the integration of the Full Moon polarity, while Pluto intensifies it; Saturn (the ruler of Capricorn) aligns with Mercury in Aquarius, and both square an exalted Uranus in Taurus… and all play an important role, so buckle up! More about the specifics in regards to all of these planets in a moment.

But first, let’s talk about this month’s Full Moon: This Lunation shows us how well we are doing with self-care and any issues connected to family or home — and also where we are in connection to greater emotional responsibility and self-alignment.

Ask yourself: What’s my relationship to self-care and where do I feel most “at home”? What’s my understanding of my emotional needs? How might an emotional connection to myself and loved ones be of benefit to me? How might it shift my priorities?

Cancer is the first of the water signs and is therefore emotional and mercurial (like a river or a stream). Feelings are real, but may not always seem rational… until we can identify the underlying, unmet need connected to a particular feeling.

We all have needs — a need for love or approval, for control (or for not feeling out of control — this can also show up as our need for autonomy and independence), for safety and security, for human connection (or a heart connection) to a living being.

Our feelings reflect whether our needs are being met. Feeling happy, peaceful, and open indicates that our needs are being met. When we feel “negative emotions” (e.g. stressed, depressed, angry/frustrated, etc.) it’s clear that at least one important need is not being met.

If you are feeling any of the latter emotions, ask yourself: Which of my needs is not being met at this time? Am I lacking (and therefore “wanting”) approval, love, control, safety, or security? Am I wanting to feel connected, closer, or do I want to be separate? And whichever one it is, could I let go of “wanting” that, just for this “now-moment”? 

In other words, could I let go of the idea that I am lacking something? Would I? In other words, am I willing to let go, just as best as I can, just for right now? When? (This last question is an invitation to let go right here, right now).

By the way, if you enjoyed those questions, or are intrigued, they come from The Sedona Method – a set of processes I use extensively in my coaching work, that is very subtle and powerful. For more info about my Coaching-Healing sessions, click here.

Now, let’s take a look at the polarities involved with this Full Moon… to read the whole Full Moon article and get access to all the Coaching Questions in writing, click here.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following placements: 26-29 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, and Libra or 0 degrees of Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, or Taurus? If so, you are more affected by this month’s Full Moon. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Also on Monday evening, at 6:48pm EST as the Full Moon becomes exact, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that will last for a little over 4 hours, until 11:03pm EST. You may be feeling a need for the familiar and comfortable, for emotional connection and the nurturing of a safe home life — while also experiencing a desire to accomplish career goals, worldly accomplishments and success, and even worldly status. Use this intuitive time to balance those needs.

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan all of Monday evening ahead of time.

Monday late evening, at 11:03pm EST, the Moon moves into fun and attention-loving Leo, where it will journey until Thursday morning. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising. We all love to be admired — or at the very least acknowledged — for our greatness 🙂

So hand out some compliments — let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things… be honest and authentic, as best you can. Fun, games, and romance are a big part of this energy as well. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones.

If there are no “outer children” around, how about getting in touch with your “inner child” — it’s definitely easier for the next two days. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you let out a tiny squeak, just thinking of it?

Also, on Monday, Mercury resumes its normal pace through the sky, ending its Station — but moving backward through the sky, as seen from Earth (that’s what “retrograde” refers to).

We have a chance to do some internal work on any thinking and/or communication issues that came up over the last couple of weeks — especially those connected to like-minded people, groups, and networks (locally or online). How can you stay curious and open-minded about thoughts that come through from your inner genius? How might you honor your own unique thoughts?

You can also ask yourself: What needs to be addressed with regards to any group experiences, humanitarian causes, or technology? What do I need to learn about my affiliations with like-minded people over the next 8 days? If I knew I actually could make a difference, where would I begin?
