Full Moon in Cancer
December 25, 2015
We began 2015 with our eyes wide open, with a full moon at 14 degrees in Cancer (read about it here) and now, we end the year with our last full moon in Cancer; still with our eyes open at 3 degrees in Cancer.
The internet has been blasted by the recurrences of the full moon on Christmas Day. Surely, we have many full moons on Christmas Day/Eve with the last one on December 24, 2007 at 2 degrees in Cancer, and previously on December 26, 2004 but at the midnight hour it was pretty lit at 5 degrees in Cancer. This year, it will be on December 25th 6:12am EST, 3:12 PST.
However, I have stated in the last three to four blogs that history repeats itself, so without looking can you guess to what degree and what date the next full moon will fall on Christmas Day and what year? The math is quite simple. We did not have a full moon on Christmas Day between 2000 and 2003 which means that between the last one (2004) and the most current (2015) is the difference of 11 years. Therefore, the next full moon will be in 2026 and because history repeats itself it has to go back to the degree it was prior to 2015 this means it will be on December 24, 2026 at 2 degrees in Cancer (I could be wrong as I am not an astrologer nor a mathematician or a scientist but it’s worth a good guess).
Even though this full moon will fascinate many, depending upon which hemisphere one resides, the names of the moon are associated with the hemisphere. In the north they name the full moon in December as the Long night moon or actually, the cold moon because of the cold conditions and the night seems to be so long because the sun never seems to come up. In the south it is called a Rose moon as the hue of the warm and cold air form a reddish tint to the moon.
Often it has been rumored that during the full moon the howling of wolfs will trigger some unimaginable supernatural activities in the atmosphere such as natural disasters, like rain and earthquakes, without warning. But, just as our air brings her wrath onto our earth, human lives will dive into the depths of their own emotions. Cancer moon often brings a lot of water, snow, and surging rain which could cause devastation to hills and mountains. It could also cause destruction to our own emotions.
The Full moon gives a gesture for us to appreciate the significance and purpose given to us to discover what it means to live with a purpose. It is as influential as everything the moon stands for. This moon rules areas of people, visions, and karmic memories. Domestic issues will disturb most of us during the full moon in Cancer.
Sentimentality and past memoirs will draw us to people from our past. These feelings exist on a karmic level which allows us the chance to go backwards and save things and people from our past. In many cases this involves those we believed we had let go, or perhaps, we may not have let go of them when it was called for. Often times it was regretful words or actions which separated us from them, and now all it takes is a little effort, modesty, and being humble to make the heart heal and be right again. It is time to open to your feeling; perhaps very deep ones that we may have kept concealed and silent for a long time; to apologize, if need be, and in general, be more kind and nonjudgmental.
After the planets have choked many of us with the Uranus/Saturn/Pluto/Mars energy, we can finally welcome the Winter Solstice and a day after, this moon. We can sing the “Shake it off” song. But please don’t try to ski if you don’t know how. If you are a Sagittarius or have any houses in Sagittarius you might do that. I’d hate to see you break bones while your Cancerian friend sits there and laughs at you making a fool of yourself.
A full moon in Cancer is also a compulsive time for many. This is especially true for those who have difficulty connecting with people as it could cause binges like drinking, chocolate, Ice cream, or even sexual liaisons, all of which will be regretted later. It will be a bad hangover which may take months to get over.
But where there is ruin there will be new development. The full moon always brings closure in order to bring to us a better tomorrow. The hills of the new, and new beginnings, will bring with them central changes which have been dreaded for so long. These worries manifest in the form of ambiguities and it is these mysteries that have also held us back for so long.
This full moon will emphasize how confident we are in the emotions that are attached to our communication, how much we share, and how much we relate to others. The full moon can be a luminous time; however, it all depends upon our moderation of the energy.
The cancer full moon is also very special as the energy will allow freedom from old wounds which may have caused cruel resentments and the powerlessness to forgive and move past vital things. The energy of this moon will give the healing required to absolve, thus freeing one’s self from emotional constipation. To only imagine a world without chains or to revert the energy back into the self so that the energy can be placed somewhere else which results in beautiful things of the future.
This moon allows that balance and to appreciate that perhaps it is not our discomfort to hold on to, but it’s the opinions of our environment that make you feel the way you do. Whether it be people or places, the voices have caused a lot of pain and unreasonable decisions based upon other people’s values and norms, not of your own.
Brace yourself though! Letting go of harmful energy is not always easy as it has been consistent for so long. Imagine for a moment an addict goes cold turkey one day from something he or she has been using for many years. Similar to that, love can be just as addictive if it makes us feel good. Therefore, letting go will cause many to be moody and unreasonable. Give yourself time to heal and others as well. Trust your intuition.
Open your mind and heart wider than ever before. If you need to cry, then cry. Let it all go. Your heart and mind, and especially psyche, will let you know that it is ok to do so and that the tears are not of pain but of love. Show your love to someone with the kindest spoken words and the hurt will diminish through compassion. However, if there is indecision or bitterness then the spoken words will cut like a knife, deeper than the depths of any soul.
The first step of letting go is to physically do it. Cancers love to be cared for and love their homes. The force of this moon will give the energy needed to clean the home of clutter, finish the projects which were not finished, and bring the beauty and light of the full moon into the home. Through all this electricity in the air don’t forget to go into your shell too from time to time. Cancers love their solitude, this is how they love themselves and are accepting of others. Through the separation there will be answers to understanding the past and plant the seeds of tomorrow. Cleaning of the body, mind, spirit, and the physical world will lay a solid foundation for tomorrow. However, Cancerians know that tomorrow cannot happen overnight; it is going to have to happen one day at a time.
Significance of this moon is not just about emotions but it is also about closeness. Cancer is a sign of fostering and the love of a mother for her son or daughter. It’s a karmic connection, a sacrifice, and an allegiance to safeguard the family. The need to protect may be so strong that there may be predispositions to bring out indulgences such as eating, drinking, and spending too much. It is a tall order to release feelings and, at the same time, try to understand them. A birthmother may play an important role in one’s life while trying to appreciate the deep meaning of love mixed with discipline. Memories of positive childhood experiences will create imaginative responses, thus triggering the psychic energy which will be directly connected to the birth mother. The feelings may be very clingy and obstinate but the need to follow them is more gratifying.
The moon in Cancer brings encouragement, passions, compassion, resourcefulness, and sentimental issues in our lives. The Watery Cancer Moon brings up memories of childhood, warm motherly arms, and tender touches for loved ones. Our hearts swirl in a sea of ancient imagery…. watch out for crabbiness!
There may be a lot of sensitive emotions and a need to hide under a shell, for some time, in seclusion. Defending ones tradition and family maybe be number one on everyone’s agenda. Although dispositions may be changeable, people may often be very nurturing and caring. Elderly people may be looking for protection and nurturing. Care needs to be taken to avoid hurting the feelings of others as well as having your own feelings hurt.
Since Cancer is ruled by the Moon, lunar influences are strongest and most easily expressed when focused through this sign. The moon greatly influences personality, the subconscious, and the emotions which mold instinctual behavior. When the Moon is in Cancer it is a time of tense emotions and great sensitivity with people responding to life through emotions rather than reason. During this very vulnerable period be cautious not to emotionally wound others or allow yourself to be wounded. Generally, people will be passive, easy-going, sentimental, loving, and nurturing. Unfortunately, this motherly expression of caring is often expressed with food and it is easy to overeat. Cancer is a nurturing sign and the most fertile sign of the zodiac. With the moon in Cancer, it is a good time for creating life and for growth. Don’t be surprised if you find some news about a new baby or give birth; it could also be weddings and reunions. It is all about families and children.
The moon in Cancer represents Fostering, Sensitive, Delicate, Creative, and Romantic. It is my suggestion that you purchase a pink candle and carve your name, and the name of your loved one, through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil, or inspiration oil, and chant Psalm 70. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle.
Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding a satisfying relationship with another person, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy. The mantra for Cancer moon is:
“Om Shrim Chandrakia Namaha”
Om Shreem Chan dra kia nahm – ah- ha)
Om, and salutation to the creative abundance that is the very form of the universe.
This Mantra opens the universal forces in your life and allows the righteous changes to occur. With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation, even if there is the slightest change, and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember, to make the affirmations begin with “I feel the resolute. I protect, save, nourish, and assimilate all of life’s emotions; I have a desire to connect to the source of subconscious and be reserved, quite, and love without conditions.”
Please note that I am not an astrologer nor do I claim to be. These are general tendencies; not necessary or exact to every recipient. However, it gives a basic glimpse of what to expect during the lunar cycle. To understand what to expect in your particular situation, you might want to consult with an astrologer who can help you fill in the voids of confusion.

Vedic readings are unique in many senses; where it encompasses the phases of the moon and creates a reading which is based upon actions and reactions to the more mundane parts of our lives which we can control. This control is triggered through actions and reactions which create a symphony of destiny, karma, dharma, and spiritual transits which often confuse us. Our lives are not just about looking at the past; they also encompass the present so we can choose to build a future of our liking. A Vedic reading embraces those utilities and helps you create that picture perfect world through spiritual messages.
I hope that this full moon brings you the sublime transits you have asked for and the healing energies filling your heart with love and inspirations.
I wish you and yours a very happy and healthy holiday season. Stay tuned for my 2016 predictions and keep warm.
