“18 Cancer 25 Full Moon Emphasizes That We are All Connected and are Not Alone”


About a week after the resolutions and the parties to help bring into focus another year, the 18 Cancer 25 Full Moon at 11:30 pm PST on January 8th 2012 begins to subtlety emphasize the fact, that we are all connected and are not alone on our journey in this life.  With the moon near the end of the second decan of Cancer (ten degree increment dividing the 360 degree zodiac), and practicing the method of Lilly and Morin in using the essential dignities and fixed stars in delineating any chart.  The message in the cold dark night sky is directing us to aim and think differently then what we have been doing, and to restructure our concepts of our place in this world, both physically and spiritually.  Whether we believe in a higher being or not, our instinctive need to be a safe keeper and guardian of the life, and the world we live in, is becoming fundamental.  The signs are everywhere, with the weather patterns going berserk and the major earthquakes happening more frequently globally.  As the ancients considered the earth, our earthly mother, so too our world needs to return to the consciousness that life is interconnected and that we need to think and work as one, to see a better tomorrow.     


“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 19 degrees of Cancer and for the Sun in 19 degrees of Capricorn is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.


Cancer 19  A priest performing a marriage ceremony  This is a symbol of the spiritual stewardship of man as expressed in his conscious concern for the integrity of human society and for the everyday institutions through which all racial ideals must have their continued embodiment.  There are very full rewards awaiting the individual who is willing to live the life of his fellows through his consistent shaping of his own acts and opinions to dramatize the current aspirations of his kind.  His service to the established rituals becomes a special self-fulfillment.  The keyword is conformity.  When positive, the degree is a genius for bringing various facets life into organic unity, and when negative, bondage to outer forms.


Capricorn 19  A child of about five with a huge shopping bag  This is a symbol of the spiritual stewardship of man as expressed in his inherent sense of responsibility for the welfare of others, and in his desire to serve his community to the extreme of his particular range of skills.  There is wonderful recompense for the individual willing to share the total of his potentialities, and to enjoy those of his fellows to the limit of his understanding.  His quickening to every opportunity of common function becomes a special self-fulfillment.  The keyword is expectation.  When positive, the degree is an effective breadth of participation in everyday living, and when negative, indiscriminate conformity to every passing fad.


The symbol speaks to our spiritual need to committing and upholding community standards and values in order to function as a whole in a manner of harmonious cooperation in living with one another.  Here the word conformity is not to mold one into being like everyone else, but the accent is on unification, integrity, with loyalty and commitment to common thoughts in which to help us solve our differences and to work towards a better world together.  Our greatest advantage is finding our commonality, and not our differences to achieve a general objective.  To go beyond what we have experienced before and to take responsibility, opportunities, joy and satisfaction in being a help to others in working towards a universal goal that will benefit all.  Like a child who is innocent and sees the world as new and wonderful, we need to develop the courage of a little child, which has the faith that all will go well.  Before jumping into anything at this time, the aspects of Mercury conjunct Pluto and the Sun is telling us to ask the right questions before making any decisions.  Let the energy of this moon phase enter into our consciousness that we are all connected and are not alone.
