The Cancer Full Moon Lunar Eclipse happening at 11:21 am PST on January 10, 2020 will have a profound and lasting effect for the next six months. Cancer rules the home and is the embodiment of the 'Divine Feminine' energy. Cancer rules home, emotion, mothering, and intuition. These are all areas that will be highlighted at this time. In addition, this moon is in direct opposition to the Sun, Mercury, Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node which are currently residing in the sign of Capricorn. Capricorn is Cancer's direct opposite sign and rules the 'Divine Masculine', the patriarchy, tradition, rules, and work. To say that there will be a push and pull between the home and work would be an understatement.
On January 12, 2020 Saturn will be in an exact conjunction with Pluto, both sitting in the sign of Capricorn. Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and is known as 'The Taskmaster' planet. Saturn loves hard work and rule following. Pluto is the planet of destruction and rebirth, being the ruler of both Aries and Scorpio. During this time things that have not been working will begin to dissolve so that reconstruction can begin. To utilize the positive aspects of these transits you need to work on building your stability while the old systems and old ways of doing things begin to breakdown.
The crowning energies of Magic and The Beloved are calling on you to recognize the divine assistance and love that is all around you, and to see the magic that exits everywhere if you just pay attention. The number 33 (pictured on the Magic card) is a master number that symbolizes the divine and appears to let you know that assistance is right next to you if you just ask. Positioned next to The Beloved card it is reassurance that you are loved and supported. The Beloved card asks you to look within your heart and repair your relationship with yourself. Self-love is the first and most important love, without it love for others is not as solid and strong.
The Moonology cards continue these messages by asking that you move beyond your past limitations and fears and communicate from your heart to resolve old issues. It is no coincidence that the cards that came up for this reading are the full moon in cancer and the south node (I did not pull these intentionally, they are just what popped out during shuffling), both of which will be at play in the current astrological transits. Speak your truth from your heart and you can free yourself from past burdens.
The Tarot Cards:
The Four of Wands is all about building a strong foundation to take you into the future. Typically it is called the 'marriage' card, but it does not always mean a marriage in the legal sense. It can mean a marriage of the mind and the spirit.
The Seven of Pentacles is about reaping what you sow. In the picture the gentleman in the foreground is hiding a card from his fellow players. You may want to be careful what it is that you sow as you want to maintain the solid foundation laid by the first card and have a bountiful harvest.
The High Priestess is a card of Cancer and represents the intuition. The high priestess will know when she is being lied to and will see right through manipulation. In regards to the seven of pentacles representation of possible trickery, the high priestess will spot the lie without much work and be able to maintain the strong foundation laid out in the four of wands.
The overall message for this coming week is to stand in your integrity, maintain your balance in all things and keep your sense of wonder about the small acts of love and support that you see all around you in order to slough off what no longer serves you.
