"Am I willing to shine the light of my soul into all of my dark places?"
Happy First Full Moon of 2017! A full moon that occurs between December 22 and January 20th will be in the watery sign of Cancer.
Cancer is associated with home, family, and yes of course, intense emotions. Cancer is also associated with the past and old patterns of behavior. We must do the work of releasing old wounds, grudges, or past hurts if we are to move beyond the feelings of isolation and fear that are two common feelings during this watery moon’s transit. Cancer in astrology is ruled by the Moon. With tonight’s Full Cancer moon we have the Mother in all her glory, sailing high in the heavens and asking us to call forth our personal power, and psychic awareness. This is a time where we may need to examine the influence of Mother. Not just our physical (biological) Mothers, but the mother within, the nurturer, and the caretaker. Whom and what will she nourish? The Full Cancer Moon’s journey is all about moving from isolation and fear to a place of self- compassion and a deep knowing of where we belong.

FULL MOON IN CANCER MEDITATION
Sitting in silence, welcome in the energies of Cancer and it's ruler the Moon (and Neptune). In your mind's eye, travel down to the primordial source, the Mother . Here is our foundation, the ground and essence of our being. Allow yourself to rest safely in her loving arms, or to float in the darkness of the warm waters of her womb. However this "Mother" figure presents herself to you, allow her presence to support you, to nurture you. Open yourself to Universal love.
