Our subconscious minds are activated by the emotional Cancer Full Moon that makes a rare Christmas Day appearance for the first time since 1977. It’s fitting that our dreams overflow their boundaries like the ocean at high tide. But inner worries may be pitted against outer responsibilities as we strive to keep up appearances. Thankfully, the Capricorn Sun illuminates our family and tribal traditions in these darkest of winter nights.
This Full Moon is blessed by messenger Mercury’s smooth trine to jovial Jupiter that encourages us to see the positive potential in everything and everyone. Unfortunately, the magnifying lens of expansive Jupiter can also promote extravagance. Events in our lives may seem more significant than they actually are, yet the passage of time will help us put these days into perspective. Although we’re capable of blowing things out of proportion, at least we’re falling on the side of hope rather than fear.&
In these times of intense planetary stress, a magical Mercury-Jupiter trine favors frivolity and adds a joyous overtone to the music of the day. It also serves to remind us that good will toward our fellow humans goes a long way to creating Peace on Earth.
