Full Moon in Cancer on DrStandley.com

The Full Moon in Cancer is when the Moon opposes the Sun at exactly 6:34 AM EST. Download the chart wheel for this aspect and lay it over your personal natal chart or Solar Return, lining up the Sun Signs to see where this aspect is affecting your chart. When the Moon opposes the Sun, this is your 6 month check-up of the New Moon in Cancer that occurred back on July 4, 2016. The New Moon represents 'fresh starts' and 'new beginnings' while the Full Moon is your 6th month check-up to that 'thing' you began back then. You should be well on your way to make that 'thing' a reality. The Full Moon is when you should be 'wrapping it up' and be well on your way through that new thing you started back on July 4, 2016.

While the Cancer Moon is certainly about home, family, domestic affairs, the mother and the biological and psychological foundation of the individual's life, let's not forget that the sign of Cancer needs SECURITY! This Full Moon is not only about our emotional security, it is about our financial security. Cancer energy absolutely needs to feel secure or it is left feeling insecure. Nothing is more important to Cancer energy than 'feeling' secure. This is why those who have a Cancer Sun Sign or who have strong Cancer charts or even a South Node Cancer will often have hoarding issues. Either there is a hoarding issue or these individuals have several collections of collectibles.

Cancer holds on tightly to who and what it Loves. Cancer is also the one who will bad-mouth a family member and gossip about a family member much more quickly than anyone else. Certainly Cancer loves and enjoys their family, but they will unload the family secrets on anyone who will listen. Cancer is the martyr of the zodiac, but it is also the domestic goddess/god of the zodiac. Cancer rules our childhood and our biological and psychological foundation (the childhood home). So you see folks, you 'get to' choose how you see your childhood. It's either poor-me-syndrome or it is strength-through-family. You get to choose whether you will claim weakness due to your childhood experience or whether you will claim strength through your childhood experience. Notice how I used the words 'due to' or 'through'. No matter what occurred, you 'get to' choose how you will view, channel and use the energy to live your Life. You are no longer in your childhood, you are now in adulthood. Use the experience to create a better Life now!

Full Moon's have a heavier 'orb of influence' within 4 to 5 days on either side of it occurring, but I like to give it a full 7-day 'orb of influence' to account for your intuition. This Full Moon in Cancer will impact us for the next 6 months and take us up to the next New Moon in Cancer that will occur on June 23, 2017 starting the New Cancer energy cycle all over again. So you see folks, once a month, we get a 'fresh start' and 'new beginning' in each new Sun Sign impacting us in the house the area of our chart that they represent.

Sit back and think about how bright a Full Moon is and how you can literally see in the dark by the Light of a Full Moon. Seriously, don't read any further for a couple of minutes. Just take in the awesomeness of how the Light of the Moon can serve as a flashlight when we are in the dark. The Full Moon is not only a spotlight, it is a beacon. It has a dual purpose. Think about the contrast between Light and dark. Picture these moonbeams shining like a flashlight on a certain area of your Life. It's like seeing a dark stage with a spotlight shining on the performer, which makes the subject or subject matter pretty dang obvious. At the same time it is a beacon that serves as a guiding light.

This is a challenging Full Moon to say the least. The sign of Cancer is hyper-sensitive, over-emotional, moody as hell without any help from other planets and takes everything way too personal. Cancer can't help it because the emotions are all laid out there for everyone to see. Cancer wears their emotions on their sleeve. It's just too much and pretty much a guarantee that someone will end up crying before it's all said and done. The Moon naturally rules the sign of Cancer anyway, so it's a double-whammy of emotions, feelings, moods and sensitivities. The Sun in Capricorn is not on board with so much emotional and isn't happy about it one bit.

To add a bit of anxiety to the mix, there is an 'exact' T-Square at 22 degrees in the Cardinal signs. The Cardinal signs are Aries, Libra, Cancer and Capricorn. A T-Square or T-Cross is when two planets are in an opposition aspect to each other (180 degrees), which is the Sun and Moon in this case, and both are making a square aspect of (90 degrees) to a third planet, which is Uranus in Aries in this case. It's an isosceles triangle! The Good news about this T-Square is that its in the Cardinal signs which always enjoy a challenge and will only get frustrated when there is no recourse for change. Cardinal signs want some change because they like the idea that they can survive under changing conditions. It's a survival thing. So if you can think and act your way through this Full Moon that is accompanied by an exact T-Square, with the mindset of, "I can do this! I will survive and be stronger as a result of this Full Moon" then you will benefit from this Full Moon immensely. The problem is when we let our emotions get the best of us and take things so personal that its embarrassing. This Cancer energy is guilty of making things about them, when it wasn't. For example, someone might tell you something frustrating about themselves or someone they know and your response might be, "Well I don't do that!" No one said you did because they were talking about someone else, not you.

This Full Moon is also accompanied by a Grand Cross in the Cardinal signs although it is not exact, but close enough that it matters, like horseshoes and hand grenades. The Moon, Sun and Jupiter will all be at 22 degrees, while Uranus in Aries will be at 20 degrees. That's pretty darn close folks. The way I like to think of Grand Crosses is, you need to 'think outside of the box'. Download the Daily Astrology Chart Wheel the Full Moon and you will see the Grand Cross that looks like a big red box in the middle of the chart wheel. In fact, there are two over-lapping Grand Crosses present. The second one isn't exact either, but it is still close enough that it counts, like horseshoes and hand grenades. You get points or you get blown up, one of the two. The second Grand Cross involves Pluto in Capricorn, the Moon in Cancer, Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries. In the charts I write the squares are red lines with the little red boxes on them. Four (4) square lines are creating one big red box and all 4 corners oppose the opposite sign, so there is a big green 'X' in the middle of the big red box. Think outside of this big red box in order to make your Life easier. Venus and Neptune conjunct in Pisces is open for your use. The North Node in Virgo is available for use. And Mercury in Sagittarius is available for use as well. So you see, there is help here.

Now here is the real meat of the Full Moon in Cancer. Even though this Full Moon naturally rules the emotions, feelings, moods ans sensitivities, the gift that it really has is the gift of intuition. While Pisces is THE MOST intuitive sign of the zodiac, Cancer is THE SECOND most intuitive sign of the zodiac. While Pisces THE MOST fearful sign of the zodiac, Cancer is THE SECOND most fearful sign of the zodiac. So you see, these two Sun Signs really feed off each other's intuition and fear. The great thing about this Full Moon occurring during so much Pisces energy, includes the South Node, Venus, Neptune and Mars and Chiron all in Pisces. Cancer and Pisces are both water signs, which means these two Sun Signs are trine each other and a trine aspect is easy and effortless energy. If you use this Full Moon's gift of intuition and trust your gut, then you will be miles ahead of where you would otherwise be. These emotions, feelings, moods and sensitivities are intuition, "I feel therefore I am" but Cancer goes overboard and misses the gift. Cancer gets too wrapped up in their feelings and ends up sitting in emotions and martyrdom. When Cancer energy is channeled inappropriately then it shows up as crazy and emotionally whacked, but that's entirely up to you. My advice is to trust your intuition. I don't care if everyone around you is on emotional overload and crying, you don't have to join them. If you play the emotional card, then YOU will have to play it out. But if you play the intuitive card, you will benefit because you are following 'the rules'. Stay on your own Full Moonbeam paying more attention to what it is shining on for you and what you set out to accomplish back on July 4, 2016.

All too often this energy is misguided, mischanneled and misunderstood. There is no doubt about it, this lunar influence can make you look crazy. Once you start pouring energy into feelings like emotions and moods, then you have just lost the game and you will be easily trampled, infiltrated or just pouting in your own self-absorbed misery. If you need to dive into your feelings and help someone understand your emotions and moods then use the starter phrase, "I feel . . . " instead of saying, "You . . . " and just going into full-throttle crazy and accusing someone of not understanding you. Believe me, no one is going to understand you or want to listen to you in that state of being. This motto is really about intuition, "I feel therefore I am." Think of the keywords that go with "I feel therefore I am" -- intuition, intuitive, intuit, instinct, gut, sensitivity, sense, touch, premonition, hunch, knowing, unjustified proof, insight, etc. Need I go on? Can you see how you would literally squash your "I feel" if you go into full-blown crazy feelings.

The last thing about this Full Moon is that it is accompanied by the aspect Venus conjunct Neptune. This aspect represents individuals who suffer from 'Failure to Launch' and those who still believe in the 'Fairytale of Love'. Venus conjunct Neptune is also 'Faith Healing' in its finest hour. This aspect takes the qualities of Pisces to a higher level. First of all, Neptune is the natural planetary ruler of Pisces and Neptune is the higher octave of Venus. Neptune is Venus exalted. This is spiritual Love in its finest hour. Venus conjunct Neptune is pure Love, without scratches, tears, rips or holes. What is so incredible about this aspect is it can 'Heal with Love'. I'm guessing Jesus had Venus conjunct Neptune and confirmed the apostles with this power (Venus conjunct Neptune) when He breathed on them the Holy Spirit and told them, "As my Father sends me, I send you." Whooaaaaa, this is deep folks but then again, Pisces is deep. After all, it does rule the depths of the Ocean.

For Aries, will probably have to closely monitor your emotional actions and reactions around the domestic sphere more than any other sign. This emotional and moody lunar influence is challenging your 4th house of home and family. Not only because the Moon is moving through your 4th house of home and family but because Cancer rules home and family. Self-monitor your impulsive actions and reactions and steer clear of conversation that could lead to locking horns with someone else. You may be looking for a fight and that will likely not go over very well. Maybe you should rethink the whole aggressive approach and just remove yourself from the situation for a few days. You may be the youngest sign of the zodiac but you are still old enough to know when to simply back off.

For Taurus, make certain that you do not allow this emotional, moody and sensitive Moon to overtake your mind and turn something positive into something negative. Once you start breathing heavy and it becomes audible, then it makes it easy for others to predict your next move. That's when you turn from a cow to a bull, while someone else plays the role of matador and provokes you. Don't be so emotionally predictable and take things so personal. When you use this lunar influence, make certain that you are using it for intuition rather than emotional reactions toward someone else. This Cancer Moon can bring you wonderful awarenesses about yourself when you use focus on your mental abilities rather than ignore them. Since this is the house of communication and the Moon is in Cancer, which rules home and family it's a perfect time to connect with family and share the Love.

For Gemini, notice your actions and reactions because they will be a reflection of your self-worth. The temptation to spend or likely over-spend on the home and/or family members will be great so you will need to tame your spending. Hide your credit cards and focus more on how to pay off any balances. Make certain that you aren't just trying to buy Love and skip treating yourself to anything under this Full Moon, simply because you are quite capable of saving the money. Even though there are more than enough planets squaring your sign right now (Pisces) and Saturn in Sagittarius opposing your sign, this is the perfect time to restrict, limit and become more responsible, simply because you can. Keep your mouth zipped if others turn emotional, moody and hyper-sensitive. If anyone can keep it light and goofey, it's you!

For Cancer, you are in your element with this lunar influence as your sign rules home and family. You have two bold choices of what type of energy you want to raditate during this Full Moon because all eyes are on the Cancer. You can choose to be Loving, nurturing and family oriented or over-emotional, moody and hyper-sensitive. You could easily make everything about you and take everything very personal or you can direct your nurturing attention to others and ask, "What can I do for you?" Make certain you are choosing your higher-self when you are around family members. Love them fully and give them a big ol' Cancer hug by wrapping all of those Cancer the crab arms and legs around them. ah ah aaaah - no pinching with those pinchers!

For Leo, you will probably have it a little rougher than the other signs under this Cancer Moon. Leo could easily go into a funk (self-pity, sulking or pouting mode) because this lunar influence impacts your 12th house of self-undoing and pain that you hide from others. It can also cause you to roar or complain just to be left alone. Now now Leo, I've told you this many times before, if you sulk or pout that would be playing into your weakness and Leo doesn't even like to hear the word "weakness". How dare I even say such a thing! Don't scratch my eyes out! You need to play UP your strengths because you have such a strong spirit. That's a lot better than slipping into a funk and going into your den to sleep. This Cancer Moon represents the home and family, where you should be showing the Love, rather than withholding the Love. If you don't give Love, it will be a challenge to receive it in return. And Leo always likes to have their mane (ego) stroked.

For Virgo, you may stray off the beaten path and do something a bit out of character. Sometimes you are just too dang predictable. Okay, a lot of times you are predictably predictable, which can be fairly boring for others if things always have to go according to a plan or schedule. Mix it up a little bit. A little juice and surprise in your life will not hurt you a bit or those you influence. You could use a few wonderful surprises in your Life but if everything has to happen in a certain way and at a certain time, then Good luck thinking you will receive a surprise. Go off the beaten path because there is more to Life beyond a well-planned and predictable schedule.

For Libra, there is a strong possibility during this Cancer Moon that you could be complaining about your work to family members. You may grab hold of a certain subject matter and may not be able to let it go. You may even complain in tid-bits, like pinching here and there all day long, unable to stop mentioning that 'thing'. You might even see some of your co-workers as family but will have plenty to be crabby about if you get to talking about it. Leave work at work and tend to your family at home. Refrain from bringing work home during this Full Moon influence. Leave work at the office or at the front door threshold.

For Scorpio, your higher-thinking mind is asking you to step beyond your usual mindset and take yourself higher. This emotional, moody and sensitive Cancer Moon can turn Scorpio into Mr. or Miss Crabby Pants. This Cancer Moon has pinchers and so does Scorpio and you know all too well how cranky you can get. Take yourself beyond your usual response and entertain your ambitions, goals, dreams and visions. You should be able to see your Life clearer right now simply because your intuition is heightened under this fluid and watery Moon. Tap your intuition and let's see you create something great out of absolutely nothing. Remember, you have the Midas Touch like King Midas. You are also the Phoenix Rising who is able to transform and create out of the ashes.

For Sagittarius, you may be quite emotional and sensitive during this Cancer Moon in your 8th house of jealousy and insecurity. This may have something to do with money. The jealousy and insecurity could be personal or professional. This Moon can put Sagittarius in a fearful mood and it's almost as if you are making it all up simply by being over-emotional. Knock it off because it's just too much and others will have to just tune you out! Just stop! If you are not in Love or with hanging out with the people you Love, then this is a lesson in self-Love, which actually isn't such a bad place to be simply because this experience will lead you to the place that you desire to be. Refrain from over-emotional, hyper-sensitive and moody actions and reactions, especially with the partner or spouse. You are so much more physically attractive when you are happy.

For Capricorn, relationships may take the wind out of your sails today. You can put yourself in a better mood simply by deciding what your responses will be to any emotional influence from others. You can either let it get to you or change your response, which in turn changes their response to you. That's right . . if you really want to change how someone responds, then change yourself and they will have to change in response to you. It's a sneaky little manipulative technique, but it sure does work. Change always begins with you. Always! Relationships can be over-emotional, hyper-sensitive and moody under this Cancer Moon. Go to your higher-self and deal with it from that place.

For Aquarius, this Cancer Moon could steer you into cranky-pants territory while you are trying to get organized, planned and scheduled. After all, this Cancer Moon does represent the pinching crab. This Cancer Moon can be very Loving, cuddly and sweet especially when around family, even for the aloof and distant Aquarius. All the same, the moodiness and crabbiness can show up and ruin all the fun. While someone might want to get close to you, you may not want to get close to them. Catch yourself if your responses turn emotional and moody, especially while you are in the midst of getting organized or trying to add some structure to your daily routine. You want to stay focused but others just won't let you. RATS!

[ back to top ]

For Pisces, this Cancer Moon is normally a very cuddly and intimate day Moon, but it just doesn't seem to be working out that way. Pisces and Cancer will probably have the best Full Moon experience out of all the 12 Sun Signs. This is an incredibly fertile time for Pisces where you could be around a school of fish (lots of children) or creating an environment for children such as a nursery, playroom or even getting intimate with your Lover. Refrain from getting too deep in conversation with a Loved one, although intimate, connected and Loving conversation will prove to be fruitful. This is an absolute perfect time to be with the one you Love. If you can't be with the one you Love, don't Love the one you are with . . call the one you Love!!! Kissy kissy. You may feel a strange need to pinch with your words. My advice is, don't do that.
