CANCER FULL MOON

We have a Full Moon in sensitive and family/home-centred Cancer at 22°, opposite the Sun in Capricorn.
There are contacts with Uranus (freedom + change), Jupiter (judgemental opinions + ideals), and Pluto (transformation + control).

Feelings of insecurity have bubbled up recently. You might be feeling unsupported or that support is erratic. There's been indecisiveness between choosing intimacy and security or freedom and risk.

We're craving change, but we're uncertain about giving up what's safe and familiar.

Hopefully, you will connect to big visions for the future that require you to connect to radical ideas.

You could see your place in a wider humanity, and you'll take your family along for the ride, or break free from them!

If you haven't found a direction, you will likely just feel smothered and rebellious. Taking action from such feelings won't lead to anything beneficial.

Honour that you feel restless, and understand that it's a sign towards change. But don't create upheaval for its own sake. You have a journey to take up, wait for the true road sign.


The Cancer-Capricorn axis touches childhood and parental issues. You might find some deep anger or resentment rising up. You might be fighting to cut some apron strings. If you're older, you will more likely be experiencing a big push towards freedom from old childhood issues, especially any feelings that your parent/s smothered, controlled, or held you back.

Mercury now gone direct suggests that many of us will have had big 'aha' moments - clarity over our relationship to mother and/or father. If so, lucky you, you're embarking on a whole new era of self-authority and freedom.

Wherever Cancer is in your chart is where you're feeling especially touchy and emotional right now. It's also where you need to nurture the most. Cancer represents the mother in us all.

No matter how busy you are, take time out to tend to the heart of that area in your life. Give it attention. It will prepare the ground for your growth.

peace & tenderness dear souls,
Autumn

CAPRICORN NEW MOON

On the 29th at 7° of Capricorn, the Sun and Moon come together for our last New Moon of 2016.

The phrase I hear is:
Deliberate Dreams

Every New Year, a mass of people make resolutions. Every year, most of these fail.

Ironically, Capricorn energy is there to support long-term goals. So how do we make them stick?

The trick is to start with the heart, and from a place of inspiration.

Too often we start with our heads, and from a place of guilt.

Astrology gives us the added gift of clarity - by pin-pointing what area of life we're supported in making achievements.

Mercury with the New Moon tells us we'll be capable of merging our emotional impulses with sensible thinking.
Mercury will still be in Retrograde so his power will be in reflection - let your long-term goals be informed by what has come before (in other words; learn from this year's mistakes).

Mars is in a gentle relationship with the Sun-Moon, and sitting right beside Neptune. Mars is action, desire and drive - excellent for a fresh start. However, Neptune is wishful thinking!

Hmm, well, we risk deluding ourselves of what we could achieve, or we can bring real action to our creative goals. Its important that we stay grounded. Listen and reach for your authentic dreams, and also consider what is practical and useful.

It's really worth noting that often our desire to have an improved experience in one area of our lives, actually comes about by focusing our efforts on a different area. For example, changing how we communicate eventually gives us an improved experience with relationships.

The North Node is in a supporting relationship to the Sun-Moon, so the grounded intentions we seed now, will have life-defining implications.

Put your focus in true heart-felt goals, and you will achieve worthwhile changes that will mean long-term implications to your happiness.

peace and stability dear friends,
Autumn

GEMINI FULL MOON

A Full Moon in Gemini today at 22°. The sign of communication and information.

It's a wonderful time to open up and see all the connections. Gemini is a networker - he sees how one piece of information connects, or could connect, to another piece.

When we have a Full Moon, we have the Sun opposite, this time in Sagittarius. So we have the desire for variety and the ability to take in lots of information, and the opportunity to balance that with the Sagittarian ability to view the fuller picture and aim for a target.

The focus is most definitely on variety, passing news, ideas that stem from simple chit-chat, serendipitous conversations, as well as help coming from neighbours or siblings, or someone in your immediate environment.

Information is coming from a variety of sources, and some of us are naturally inclined to always be ready to listen. However, if you're of the character to do things your own way, or go it alone, or you tend not to listen to outside advice, you're going to miss out! Regardless of what you normally do, keep your ears and eyes open for now, and don't dismiss possibilities out-right. One of those pieces of information (but because it's Gemini, probably several pieces!) will be really useful to you.

Also, strangers or casual acquaintances might have answers, ideas, or interesting information for you too. If you're reserved, an introvert, or shy, do your best to stay open to these encounters.

All of this is balanced by the Sagittarian influence on our beliefs and personal philosophy on life. The information may seem trivial, but it's all connected to something bigger, eventually.




A gentle relationship to Uranus encourages us to listen to our guts and break free from old modes of thinking or misinformation. As we're coming from a recent Scorpio influence, I'm wondering how many of us have been deceived. Well, it's now time to readjust our mental processes and break free into a truer mindset. Mercury goes retrograde soon, and we'll have plenty of time to mull over what's been going on.

This Full Moon brings a lot of clear information…. Be ready to listen. All that you've experienced these last 3-6 months will be made clearer now if you're willing to face some harsh realities. There is a tough relationship with Chiron so for many of us, these realities will touch some old wounds.

Saturn right up against the Sun is demanding discipline and that we take up practical responsibility. No time for vague thinking or daydreaming right now. Cut out the lies, the idealism, the wishing, the lack of decision-making - take authority of the information and take action.

You might be making more trips than usual, regarding the area of life the Full Moon falls into. I know a Scorpio who is making several trips to collect old possessions from a divorce, and a Libran who is fulfilling her ideals by first making small trips that check off necessary details.



This report is a little late due to the upheavals in my life - packing, moving out of a community, and…. hitting the road! Full Moon in my House of travel. *wink*
Thanks for your patience.

peace & connections dear souls,
Autumn
