The Full Moon in Cancer is exact January 12, 2017 at 4:33am MST. Cancer is perhaps the most outwardly emotional sign. Expect others and yourself to be more emotional during this time.
This Full Moon is part of an astrological formation referred to as the Cardinal Grand Cross. Basically, if your personal planets (from your natal chart) fall at the same degree as the Grand Cross you will feel it most definitely and the flavor will depend on which planets are involved.
My own personal Cardinal Grand Cross was activated in April 2012. Over the next few years I experienced an awakening. My entire life has changed as result. It was difficult going through such challenging energy. You see a Cardinal Grand Cross brings about powerful life changes.
The first Full Moon of 2017, the beginning of a cycle, a 1 year in numerology, culminating in a Cardinal Grand Cross is very intriguing. When I set my new moon intentions at the end of 2016, I had no idea what this full moon would bring. My intentions were set for happy healthy children, more time together as a family, and growth in my crystal endeavors.
A great epiphany hit me for the New Year. My youngest daughter struggles with reading. I also struggled with reading at her age. I began to wonder if maybe she has dyslexic. My uncle has it. Maybe she has it too.
So, I googled signs of dyslexia. Lo and behold, I am reading through the signs going I do that. I do that. I do that. That’s me. Wow, I am dyslexic! My daughter is dyslexic. My young educational experience makes so much more sense now. Now I understand why I had to work so hard at school, while my brother just seemed to breeze through. Emotions. Many emotions. Why didn’t anyone notice. Why wasn’t I tested. How did I not know? Is it better that I didn’t know?
The kids were supposed to go back to school after the holidays. We have had the craziest weather, setting 30 year snow records. It snowed nearly 2′ in just a few days. School has been cancelled four days in a row. I have been telecommuting and I am going berserk. This craziness has given me time to think about my strategy for helping my daughter.
Strange how things culminate sometimes.
During the next few days, I will be carrying Lepidolite, Sodalite, and Fluorite. Lepidolite is a great stone for soothing anxiety and depression. Sodalite soothes, cools, and is great for level-headed communication. Fluorite is my favorite stone for focus and concentration. These helpful friends will assist me in keeping my cool during this Full Moon in Cancer.
