Full Moon in Cancer


Welcome to the Full Moon in Cancer Ritual and celebration dance which waxes full at 11:53 pm EST this evening.  Our emotional energy in the sign of the nurturing mother.  Cancer is feminine “I Feel” of the zodiac, cardinal water; cardinal signs take action, charge in and get the job done and the mother in them acts well before she stops to think… hurt her children and she’ll slit your throat and then ask what you did wrong after.  Water signs are emotion and instinct.. give her a few minutes and she’ll see through to the very soul of a person and woe to he or she who rings false … you’ll never change her mind.

Cancer is sensitive, can put herself in the shoes of others and feel what they feel…she wants to nurture and protect, full of feeling, absorbs impressions rapidly, feels deep, loves deep and hurts deep…in the 10th house the house where our mid-heaven begins which typically symbolizes the goal of an individual in life in your own chart…what is that  you wish to achieve and the lower heaven, beginning in the 4th house represents from where we have come…what are roots are.

The aspects to our moon are of course the opposition to the sun which remains in Capricorn adding just a touch of tension to what Cancer tries to accomplish so our outward look on life may be at slight odds with our innermost desires at this time…the sun sitting in the 4th house where our lower heaven rests making this the perfect time to take a close look at who we are versus who we could be.

The trine with Saturn, our sense of discipline and structure in moody Scorpio looking for what is truly essential in life in the house of values asks us to question what’s really important…pointing the proverbial finger at Cancer’s mothering nature.  And Saturn is the ruling planet for the hebrew month so we pay particular attention to her energies.  Saturn is contraction, the opposition of Jupiter’s expansion, she is where we best accept responsibilities, where our life has the most structure, or where we can be the most rigid in our attitudes.  Like in my chart, Saturn is in my 11th house, the house of friendships… and I am choicy about selecting friends and I typically don’t let people in too easily.

And I generally don’t add the minor planets into the discussion, but we have Ceres also in opposition to the moon and Ceres also indicates how you give and receive nurturing, so even though she’s in opposition, her goal is actually unified with that of the moon, although if you have issues with your own mother, there could be an added stressor here.

Also, the chart for the day, we have more planets in water signs.

Because the moon waxes full after sunset this evening, in the Hebrew calendar we are actually the 15th of Sh’vat and not the 14th.  According to the Zohar the permutation for Shevat is Hei Yud Vav Hei and is coded in the cerse… and if he converts it at all, then both it and that for which it is converted to shall be holy which indicates the powers of shevat to make  transformations and have changes in our life.

Shevat is the 2nd sign of winter, Left column minus which means it contains very strong forces of attraction, drawing and a desire to receive.  Shevat is ruled by the planet Saturn, called the Lord of Karma which was created by the letter Beit, the house… Cancers are typically homebodies, even if we live in a small tiny house, we make it home and that’s where we prefer to stay.

Saturn was created by the letter Bet the house, the signifyer of “In”… in Hebrew, when you’re using a noun such house, Beit, to signify being “IN” the house, its b’beit.  We had the same letter for the full moon in Gemini and we talked about Saturn’s destructive nature with respect to our physical needs and Cancer is certainly willing to care more about what our emotional needs are over our physical.  Saturn, “the Great Teacher”, teaches us that the spiritual and mental skills we’ve acquired throughout life are our truest assets. Only they can provide us the true sense of joy, happiness and confidence.

The thoth Tarot trump associated with the letter beit is the magus.


“The Magus is not only the title of the Mercurial trump that, in older decks, bears the title Magician or Juggler; it is also a title of the second highest level of spiritual illumination a human soul can attain.”

Crowley describes it as:

Mercury is pre-eminently the bearer of the Wand: Energy sent forth. This card therefore represents the Wisdom, the Will, the Word, the Logos by whom the worlds were created… “The traditional weapons of the Magus are the wand, cup, sword, and disk. “With the Wand,” Crowley observes, “createth He. With the Cup preserveth He. With the Dagger destroyth He. With the Coin redeemeth He.”34 These are the weapons the Magus joy fully juggles in midair along with four additional symbols: the style, papyrus, torch, and winged egg.”

The Magician represents consciousness, action and creation. He’s the symbol for the idea of manifestation – the possibility of making an idea come true. He gives meaning and direction to life, and he reminds us that the emotional and creative powers of our souls must have a physical basis to be of real use.

“When I look at the inspired, devoted, and brilliant people that work in so many ways to repair and nourish the world, in families, communities, and sustainable enterprises everywhere on Earth, I see the imaginal cells of our own transformation.
“That’s us, people like me and people like you, people whose stories I’ve shared… and people appreciating them, people creating new ways, seeing new possibilities…”

Today is governed by the Prince of Swords and the 4 of Disks, the “Power” card.

The 15th of Shevat is called TuBeeshvat, the new year of trees according to the school of Hillel…it is the day from which the new year is reckoned for the fruit of the trees… and alludes to the secret of God’s essential name Havayah… the Yud and the hei representing the higher concealed level of unification and the vav and the hei representing the lower revealed level of unification… and they equal 11… the full secret of Havayah is the secret of the tree of life which is the tree for the month of Shevat.   This is the time that the rain waters of the winter months begin to ascend in the veins of the tree and bring new life.


And as of the 31st of this month, in the Chinese calendar we move we leave behind the year of the serpent and into the year of the Horse.
