I’ve included the notes below if you’d prefer to read or for referencing the information later!

Sun’s position:           6 degrees Cancer (The Crab)
Moon’s position:        6 degrees Capricorn (The SeaGoat)

As I began this vision, I found myself in a small row boat, amongst tall reeds and cattails, cozy hidden secure… feeling the freedom, the clear water beneath…

and as I lay back within this craft, what is most easily visible is the expansive blue sky.

Here I have the best of both worlds; I am hidden and protected in my own private safe space, yet gazing upon and contemplating the vast sky that is endless, open, visible for all to see.

This is the dance between Cancer and Capricorn, inner and outer.  The dance of the ways that we seek security, safety and sanctuary balanced with our drive for achievement acknowledgment and accomplishment in the broader world around us.

With the Sun in Cancer perhaps it is time to recognize what inner gifts we bring to the party ~ what skills, abilities and awareness… talents that are ours to share. You are, I am, an incredible unique pattern of expression that can bring something to the outer collective that we may not anticipate and we may not see until its use is reflected back to us, just as the Moon reflects the Sun back to itself.

In the global experience of the last year plus, quarantining and social distancing has allowed many of us to explore solitude and to spend more time in our homes. This is been a period of recalibration of those spaces as we’ve finally been able to (willingly or not) back off busy external social schedules and commitments.

We have become hopefully more in touch with what serves as home; what conditions patterns and environments relax and nourish us. That is not to say that we’ve got it all figured out and landed, but this Full moon is an opportunity to digest our experiences and the wisdom that has come out of them as we renegotiate our outer lives individually and collectively.

I read somewhere that, “to rush back into some sort of ‘normal’ would be to waste the whole thing” – from which my takeaway is to acknowledge that yes we all want to feel Secure and the constant change the last year plus has been exhausting as rules, regulations and recommendations were changing on an almost daily basis… and frankly kinda still are!

So,  yeah we have gained a lot of experience with uncertainty and we have managed in varying degrees of success. To not take the time to integrate our own wisdom would be an additional tragedy as we reemerge into social union, gathering in larger groups and rebuilding a new version of our outer lives.  What wisdom of your inner self will guide you? And what in the outer world are you seeing, as if for the first time?

Cancer and Capricorn know the value of their sacred union; how integrity is built through their union – building a strong center from which we navigate both while at home and in the world offering our gifts. Stay awake within the light of this bright moon cycle – stay attentive to What’s striking you, what you’re seeing. Though it may be tempting or easier to try to let things be as they were before, this of course is never possible –  but even more particularly heightened now, in these times of extreme transformation

By sitting between Cancer and Capricorn – one behind the Sun one behind the moon, we commune with their wisdom of how to build and strengthen consistency between our outside and our inside… not attempting homogeny but constancy… not seeking the normal but the true. This foundation will serve us in the months to come.
