Full Moon - The Full Moon rises at sunset and sets at sunrise.  Astrologically, the Sun nd Moon are in opposition (i.e., opposite each other in the sky and in opposite signs of the zodiac).  She is visible all night long from moonrise to moonset.  She opens and blossoms during the Full Moon into the FLOWER, with the desire to share her beauty with others. Keywords for the this phase are: fulfillment, illumination, realization, and experience. It is the time in a cycle that you are given a clear view so that you can make adjustments to put you back on track to manifesting the goals you set at the new phase. Go to a public place. Do something with a friend. LISTEN. Receive awareness. Understand others.

Full Moon in Cancer -

         This Full Moon is at home in her own sign of Cancer. It's in the 29th degree, the anaretic degree, when the concerns of that sign are brought to resolution. This doubles the sense of culmination that comes at the Full Moon. 
     The waves of feeling are strong, at the water sign Full Moon. Thoughts  of family, Mother, and home- are big. It's the longing for a nest, support system, cozy refuge - the need to feel safe and protected.   Cancer is a cardinal sign, known for initiating, pushing the envelope, provoking, forging ahead. Cancer is an water sign that moves through emotional waves and the imagination.

It's a Good Time to:

•Be with the muse, and receive impressions from the imagination.
•Acknowledge your vulnerabilities.
•Nurture and allow yourself to be nurtured.
•Protect the frail, young or helpless.
•Give shelter to an animal or neighbor from the storm.
•Tune in to your ancestors.
•Make something artful from your memories.
•Indulge your sentimental side.
•Reach out to an old friend.
•Be near the ocean.

This Full Moon can bring on emotional tides that wash over with a great force. If you're prone to extreme moods, or already feel overwhelmed, you might want to cozy up at home.

Woden's Day - Mercury Day - the Day of Communication and Connection.... With all the emotional energy flowing today you may find yourself making very emotional communications.
