The great, long awaited year of 2012 is here. Can you feel yourself changing?
Imagine humanity as a single, huge person who has lain sleeping for eons. That long slumber is coming to an end. As humanity grows in spiritual awareness and prepares to enter a new era of greater understanding, the sleeping being we have been will arise and stand ready for a new life of greater responsibility and richer meaning.
With Monday’s Full Moon, which was exact at 1:31 a.m. CST (7:31 a.m. GMT), we had opportunities to experience the greater awareness we will need in times to come. The Full Moon occurred in sensitive Cancer, opposite the Sun in stern Capricorn. In between these two bodies was our Earth, being squeezed between Capricorn’s relentless demands to build a better foundation and the Moon’s need for caring and nurturing.
Full Moons often take us to the emotional edge, forcing us to feel deeply so we can gain clarity. With a Full Moon in Cancer, the emotional stakes are even higher because this watery sign governs memory, the past, and our deepest needs.
If you had the courage to feel (Cancer) whatever came up within you over the past several days and to be honest with yourself about what you learned in that process, take a moment to acknowledge your victory. If you gained new clarity about your purpose (Capricorn) and about what you really need to feel secure (Cancer), then you have reaped an abundant inner harvest.
That self-knowledge will be helpful when the Sun enters Aquarius in about ten days and brings us the Water Bearer’s energy of awakening and sudden change. What you have learned will help you maintain inner stability amid outer change and help you bring patience to challenging situations.
May the light of understanding you received at the Full Moon inspire you well in the weeks that lie ahead.
