Cancer Full Moon – January 19 and Inner and Outer Reality Dynamics
The Cancer full moon January 19 is the fourth of five full moons in a row that happen at the very last degree of the sign. Where is 29 degrees Cancer and Capricorn in your birth chart? Cancer and Capricorn have something very important to teach us. Cancer represents our inner, emotional world. Capricorn represents our role in the world – our profession, our destiny path, our contribution, recognition, worldly achievement and remuneration for our efforts.
This polarity pair invites us to get in touch with how the state of our inner reality creates our outer reality – how our outer circumstances are a reflection of our inner consciousness. A fear-based, victim, low self-esteem attitude generates relationships and circumstances that substantiate that mindset. Affirmations, intentions and prayers to the contrary don’t have a chance if we sabotage them with negativity, complaining, fear and doubt.
Obviously our inner and outer realities constantly interact. Our experiences as a child played a big role in forming the inner reality from which we now operate. We were also born with predispositions and karmic imprints. Of course, loving, secure, stable and uplifting environments support us in reducing fear and instilling a base of love in our consciousness. How do we attract and create this higher quality of life?
The Capricorn/Cancer pair teaches us the necessity of upgrading the state of our inner reality in order to create sustainable shifts in our lives. To move to another level of manifestation and fulfillment, we must identify the fear-based dynamics of our inner reality and then do what it takes to cultivate a love-based operating mode. Our inner reality is something that we CAN and MUST do something about. For example, when our psyche no longer needs relationships to feel loved, validated, supported and secure, we can easily let go of abusive relationships and attract more wholesome partnerships.
Cancer invites us to love ourselves, to nurture our bodies, to be kind to our feelings, to enjoy the richness of our emotions and to honor our emotions as the instinctual communication mechanism of our soul. by Gururattan
