Full Moon in Cancer… Khepera the Scarab Beetle
Happy Full Moon!
Hi everyone! If you’ve been following my 13 sign astrology info, then you know this full moon is in Cancer, not Leo. Check your google sky map apps. I’m sorry but western astrology can be so misleading. This is a very important distinction right here. The difference between Cancer and Leo is massive! Cancer is the sign of incubation and Leo is the Sun, manifestation. Before you can manifest anything, it has to be felt in the unseen world first. Cancers symbol in ancient Egyptian astrology is the scarab beetle. The scarab is a very mystical symbol filled with the internal eternal. It digs and buries itself just to be reborn again, much like the moon. This process of gestation and growth belong to Cancer. The mysterious and changeable sign represents mother ocean and all its varied existence. Everything is born from the ocean. Cancer is a cardinal sign and highlights feelings in motion. Emotion.
The ebb and flow of life. Cancer is all about the family. The deep connections. Ancestral, karmic, and cosmic, they are all Cancers domain. Everything goes back to the ocean, the womb of all life. Full Moon in Cancer is here to remind us to nurture our roots. Water our seeds (ideas) and make our deepest aspirations grow. This is THE full moon of all full moons because Cancer is naturally moon energy! Intuition and sensitivities are heightened. Internalization, processing and acknowledgement are all very necessary at this time. We’re having such a strong feminine full moon during a mercury retrograde phase of introspection right here. Like Leo, Cancer is totally creative. Those intricate emotions need an outlet or we could become prone to worry during this transit! This is a time for poetry, praying, singing, dancing and emotional expansiveness. All of this spells out fulfilling family bonds and making deeper connections from within.
For this full moon delve into some astral travel studies and sacred knowledge. The Akashic records are also emphasized for the full moon in Cancer. This is a deeply internalized metamorphosis happening right now! Cancer represents the cosmic mother, so make sure to nurture yourself, your family and closest friends. Remember your past paths and expand on them for the future. I’m feeling an extreme level of de ja vu for this full moon in Cancer phase. Like I knew this day will come. This energy will last for 2 weeks till the new moon in Capricorn. Keep working thru the current Capricorn Sun and Mercury Retrograde phase. Although some of us may be having alittle hard time, Capricorn is also a great time of strengthening and rebuilding. I am available for 1 on 1 astrology lessons and readings and will be glad to help. For the Cancer full moon, make sure you drink your water. Really. This full moon cycle is also here to remind us that Life will flow smoothly if we stay hydrated. Yep, and it’s time to do that fast if you’ve been putting it off. I get through winter months by doing a few different cleanses, so it’s not so strong of a purge in the Spring. Aloe Vera and melons, especially cucumber, are fruits governed by the moon. Eat em up! They can be your best friend during sensitive and emotional times like these. I swear by herbal teas too. Peppermint, maca, ginger, lemon, chamomile, etc. Drink it up! Coconut water mixed with fresh juices has been my latest cleansing obsession. Most of the time when we’re feeling down we are actually dehydrated. And to all the highly emotional people out there, bath rituals are essential. Use sea salt, essential oils, stones, apple cider vinegar and milks to soothe your soul. Mother takes care of all. Never forget that you are loved and free to embrace the essence of the Goddess that surrounds you. Float on! Happy Full Moon!
