The new moon was January 1st in the sign of Capricorn and the full moon is in the sign of Cancer on Wednesday, January 15. Capricorn and Cancer are attached by the quality of security. For some people the energy of this month has challenged their sense of security--whether that security is connected to home (that would be Cancer) or connected to career and one’s place in community (Capricorn). Earlier this month I heard from a client whose landlord suddenly announced the imminent sale of the condo she is living in. She and her two dear cats face upheaval and loss of physical and emotional security. There is a bundle of unpredictable energy. For some, it’s emotional volatile situations. For another it’s busy mind syndrome. One person might have increased anxiety while another person might overdo it on the road rage! Expect the unexpected! As the full moon approaches we might tune in and take our “security temperature”! Given the constant bombardment of upheavals all around the planet, maybe the full moon is asking us to remember the serenity prayer….sometimes we need the courage to address the things that need to be changed; sometimes we need the serenity to accept where we are powerless; and sometimes we need to trust our inner wisdom that we will know the difference between what we can change and what we can’t change. Chant OM and stay peaceful if you can during the full moon in Cancer.
