The Moon grows full at 3:21 p.m. CT today in water sign of the crab, Cancer.
The Moon is at home in its own sign here on the last degree of Cancer and holds within it the entirety of the inner, emotional experience of being alive on planet Earth at this tail-end Piscean era. This Full Moon is exactly trine Jupiter at 29 Pisces - the very last degree of the zodiac - and it's full to the brim. So are we. Held captive within the watery moonspell. But with sextiles to the Sun on the last degree of earthbound Capricorn and to Juno stationing retrograde at 29 Virgo to ground the proceedings.
Watery trines to Jupiter and Uranus permeate the collective ethers with a memory created from myth. The background music plays deluge myths on repeat as manufactured (sur)realities reflect them across the globe.
And now the version with the Moon.
It was the gravitational capture of the Moon into orbit around the Earth that created the catastrophe, they say. The lost continent. The destruction.
And there the anger starts. The hatred toward this lunar relationship, the violent disconnect from emotional connection, from feminine wisdom, from mothers. It fuels the destruction to this day.
The anaretic degree connections bring multi-layered culmination points enveloped in this lunar movement. We're at the end of an era. The Cancer Full Moon trines Uranus and Jupiter in late Pisces, both about to re-enter Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, for the duration of their transits. Our emotional experience shifts here along with the accelerations. What it means to call this planet home during our human lifetimes shifts. Comfortable understandings about our place here, our roots here, our place on Earth within the cosmos - if we ever had them - start to change rapidly as we are propelled into Jupiter and Uranus in Aries.
The Cancerian idea that everything is OK as long as me and mine are OK starts to fall away en masse. No longer can social privilege keep the majority "safe" while the world and their fellow human beings are destroyed all around them. The crab shell has been permeated. The home has been breached.
The culmination point is reached this afternoon. The Moon enters Leo at 4:16 p.m., and Toto, we sure ain't in Gaia anymore.
