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. For example: we all have a need for love or approval, for control (or not feeling out of control), a need for safety or security, for human connection or a heart connection to a living being, and a need for autonomy or independence.

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 are 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…

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following:  26-29 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, Libra, or 0 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus or Scorpio? 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).
