Merry Christmas, everyone! For the first time since 1977, we have a Full Moon in Cancer on Christmas Day. It won’t happen again until 2034, so this should be pretty special. The full moon will occur at 6:12 a.m. in 3 degrees of Cancer and will be trining Neptune in 7 degrees of Pisces. The trine to Neptune will be a boon to healing and forgiveness in relationships. A full moon in Cancer on Christmas Day can actually soften our defenses as we are able to access our feelings and truths can be exposed. We don’t need to fear being sentimental during this full moon and this may turn out to be a Christmas that promotes growth in all of our relationships and may actually help to minimize family tensions. All of the water signs—Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces should reap the benefits of this full moon.
On Christmas Day, Mercury in 21 degrees of Capricorn will also be trining Jupiter in 22 degrees of Virgo. This beautiful aspect in earth signs will help ground us and provide impetus for thinking clearly. Santa Claus may really deliver the goods this Christmas!
The Cancer full moon will be conjunct my south node in the 9th house and Mercury will be conjunct my Chiron in the 4th house. I have been undergoing an intense healing journey for the past couple of years and I suspect that Christmas Day 2015 will be a time of releasing old wounds and moving forward.
I know that it sounds like I have been waxing rhapsodically about this full moon, but it is still a full moon and I wouldn’t be doing my due diligence as an astrologer if I didn’t mention the potential pitfalls of this particular full moon. We need to remember that financial issues and any fears accompanying our security may surface at this time because Capricorn is all about security. The Sun is in Capricorn opposing that Cancer moon, so emotions regarding our security may be intense. I also have my north node in Capricorn in the 3rd house, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there were some action on that front for me with this full moon.
The other big astrological event that occurs on Christmas Day is that Uranus stations direct in 16 degrees of Aries after being retrograde since July 26, 2015. This can bring abrupt, unanticipated changes that might initially feel quite jarring, but are ultimately meant to serve our highest good. So don’t react, try to step back and reflect. With Uranus in the spotlight, the best way to harness its energy is to trust our intuition and don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. I am sure that the relationship theme will be amplified in my life because Uranus is stationing direct in my 7th house.
If you are curious about how Uranus stationing direct will impact you as it triggers the effects of the Uranus Pluto squares of 2012-2015, please consider getting an astrological reading. We won’t have any more exact Uranus Pluto squares, but by Valentine’s Day 2016, these two planets will be only one degree away from an exact square. This means that more changes are on the way…
The north node moved into Virgo recently, which has an underlying theme of service to others. In that spirit of pursuing my path as a healer, I am channeling that north node and Jupiter in Virgo energy by offering my Reiki services. If you are in the Boston area, please consider getting a Reiki treatment at Acupuncture for Everyone in Copley Square to destress, revitalize and remove blockages to healing. It’s a perfect way to start your weekend off. Reiki is the most profound treatment for stress relief because it concentrates on CALMING your body.
