This is another powerful Full Moon we are experiencing today, December 28, 2012. As always, the effects of the Full Moon can be felt on the days surrounding it, both approaching and trailing off.
This is a powerful time to finish and release all that you have been working with in 2012 and focusing on this month with the star gateways, in releasing all the old, the past, and moving through fears and emotional baggage that have kept you in bondage. This is a time to fully free yourself and fully begin to trust and believe in the power of you.
Because this is the closest full moon to the December solstice, this moon carries the name Long Night Moon in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere – where the days are long and the nights are short – perhaps we could call it the Short Night Moon.
The last Full Moon of the year is occurring in the sign of “nesting” Cancer, which puts an emphasis on home, family, emotions, and security concerns. It is a time to gain greater awareness on how your personal life impacts your professional life, and vice versa, while working towards harmonious balance between the two.
Full Moons are times of release for all things no longer serving you to fall away in order to achieve your desired intentional state. This “emptying out” phase may be even more pronounced right now, as this Full Moon opposes “purging” Pluto and squares “tranformational” Uranus.
This Full Moon also trines “responsible” Saturn and “wounded healer” Chiron, two very wise masters who are present to support you in fully purging and putting to rest our old emotional baggage, so you can joyfully continue on with your soul’s journey, unencumbered.
Here are some key points about this last Full Moon of 2012 from MysticMamma.com’s recount of several astrologer’s readings on the energies we are working with now. For the full post, please see the link.
…Be receptive to healing
There will be exposure and illumination of whatever is decaying or falling apart so it can be cleansed.
Practice being responsible for how you emotionally react to things or situations. Be mature enough to fulfill your need(s) with the help of Soul and the Divine.
Allow whatever is meant to be exposed to be revealed you can face it head on and move forward.
We want to be proactive versus reactive.
It is crucial to take time for yourself. Meditate.
World Peace starts with us.
each soul is learning form their own choices.
release the past.
we must first change ourselves.
We are the empowered ones. We can choose peace.
choose NOT to respond to what is without love.
only reflects back what is loving and caring.
never criticizes or feels rejected by the lack of love in others.
forgive the limits of others
there’s time to soften, to come to deeper understandings.
if you feel isolated, reach out
Be alert to revelations
drink in more love.
introduce “Divine Mother energy” into the magnetics of situations
Every day is opportunity to embrace the energetic influences to new experiences, by choice. And a lot of opportunity is abound, if we are present and responsible with how we live through our hearts. A new way of living is available, as we shift our hearts and minds, release fear and the trivial, and focus on meaningful acts of Love for Self and Others towards a Unified Higher Good.
Today’s July 3rd Full Moon in Cancer-Capricorn is a power-packed Moon, with the Full Moon Conjunct Pluto.
I thought I’d share the astrological insights for you to individually explore, found here:
The stand out points to me were these:
So the illumination available via this Full Moon is through how flexible we can be when confronted with issues requiring strength of will or strength of character. We may be required to persistently plunge ahead into our lives in some way, and thereby be freed from “soft illusions.”
Dr. Jones, creator of the Sabian Symbols, says this is a degree of our “belief in (our) inherent supremacy over all other orders of nature” through our “normal confidence in (our) ability to deal with every eventuality of day-by-day activity and relationship.” He states that “any individual must rule his environment or surrender his own potentialities forever.”
He states that this is a degree where “practicality (is) brought to the point of ruthlessness.” He offers the keyword DETERMINATION. He states that when operating positively, the degree is an “exceptional steadiness and a high sense of self-responsibility in every issue of the moment.”
The Lunar degree symbol for the 13th degree of Capricorn is “A fire worshiper.” Rudhyar says this is a degree of “Firm establishment upon immemorial principles,” “consciousness of absolute unity,” “Depth of Soul penetration,” and “Self conquest.”
In the Astrological Mandala, he goes on to say that this degree is about “the subjective quest for ultimates beyond the interplay of life and death processes,” where we confront an “adventure in consciousness.” This is where we explore the mysteries of life and transformation through meditational techniques that could help us “to a stage beyond life itself.”
He asks us “Are we ready to demonstrate (our) will to transcendence?” He says this degree falls in the Span of Illusiveness, Act of Capitalization, and Scene of Crystallization on the Individual-Mental level.
Dr. Jones says this is a degree of our “inner strength through (our) realization of an inviolable tie with the creative power of the universe itself, dramatized by (our) continual outreach to the divine in a spiritualizing of (our) aspiration and a dedication of (our) talents and possessions to the over-all reality.” Here we know we must “demonstrate (our) ultimate independence of (our) circumstances or else surrender (our) own potentialities forever.”
He states “Here is ideality brought to the point of miracle.” He offers us the keyword MAGIC. He states that when operating in a positive manner, this degree “extraordinary skill in enlisting every resource of the world for the exaltation fo self and the consummation of its ambitions.”
From these symbols it seems we can see the light of seeing the need to be strong yet flexible as we plunge into life’s possibilities, and synthesize our humor and objectivity to see the deeper meaning in life’s events and experiences. These can express as forms of self-transcendence through connecting with “the creative power of the universe” and how we dedicate our talents and possessions to a greater sense of potential that demonstrates our independence in achieving our ambitions through forms of magic and skill.
For now, enjoy seeing how to mobilize your will and skill to utilize your capacity for self-transcendence and embrace a greater potential. Here we can even transcend our old personality strengths and habits, and embrace a new day dawning even if others don’t yet see it.
This is a great time to explore different perspectives regarding things we’ve suppressed before now, and overall productivity will be sky high in many life areas. There are so many favorable sextiles, quintiles, and trines that this should be a very harmonious period with a lot of harmony and stability within productive changing conditions.
And here is a very thorough, interesting and easy to understand article by Margaret Gray, British Astrologer, who shares insights into the Uranus/Pluto square and the Chiron/Neptune conjunction with some helpful suggestions at the end to co-create with the energy of these current transits and the impacts they may have on an individual level:
