“Visit the family, hugs all around
Pictures and stories, feast for a crown
Inside our hearts lay, spirit profound
Turn up the music, of Christmas sounds”
-Paul Mooseberg, Christmas Glee
Making Christmas super special this year is a Super Full Moon in sentimental Cancer! The energetic peak will occur on December 25th at 6:11 AM EST. This Full Moon stimulates a need for comfort, intimacy and nurturing bonds. It will be a time when it feels as if everything comes together, like a gift wrapped with the perfect bow.
“Neptune, the planet of deep love – the planet that teaches the value of unconditional love and sacrifice in the name of the beloved will exert a silvery beam on this day. Also on December 25, Mercury and Jupiter will be in perfect sync, giving us a broader perspective of how joyful and abundant our lives can be. It’s a perfect day to strengthen all the bonds of family and with your sweetheart or spouse.” -Susan Miller
This beautiful and tender lunation brings a flood of emotional information and powerful breakthroughs. It’s time to delve into the realm of feeling. Sorrow, relief, joy, and other emotions that you can’t possibly put to words, but have been churning all the same seek an emotional release.
“Feelings are your indicators. Feelings show you that you are on the right path. Ask what you need to feel more emotionally comfortable. Do you take enough bubble baths? When is the last time you had a massage? Have you eaten your favorite food lately? Do you need to express your feelings to someone? Feelings of love or sadness may need to be talked about.” -Kelley Rosano
The Sun in Capricorn and the Moon in Cancer bring up family issues and obligations. Responsibilities at home and at work may collide, causing us to wonder how to balance domestic bliss with our place in the world. Cancer encourages us to value our home base and our roots, Capricorn urges us to be responsible and take care of business. Where do you place your focus?
This phase of the Moon occurs at 3 degrees and 20 minutes of Cancer. If your birthday falls on June 23rd, plus or minus four days, you will feel the Full Moon the most. If you have Cancer rising, or a natal planet in your chart that is at 3 degrees Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces, you will feel the lunar love also.
“The darkness itself is the spiritual cradle into which the Sun is reborn. There’s a melancholy that can be overwhelming without the promise of a new beginning. The many seasonal gatherings help to carry us through the dark time of the year. Parties and holiday gatherings remind us that we’re all in it together. We long for a sense of belonging, being part of a tribe, feeling that deep bond of family. -Molly Hall
Happy Holidays to all you lovely people! May you be blessed in many, many ways. xoxo
