That was quite a Sagittarian New Moon a couple of weeks ago-the journey brought forth many revealing moments within us and in our external world. Some of these revelations may have felt a bit startling. The key is that the Sagittarian quality of consciousness never presents anything more than what we can successfully handle, no matter how challenging it might seem at the time. If the passage between the New Moon and the Full Moon has felt disjointed, it is also due to a worm hole opening. A worm hole is set by two New Moons which bracket a set of eclipses. The current wormhole started on December 7 and will end on February 4. A wormhole provides an opportunity to move into territory that otherwise may not have been possible, or even comprehensible. Within a wormhole, we can transcend feelings or patterns of behavior that did not seem changeable before.
The thing about wormholes is that we cannot plan ahead our responses to whatever might emerge. As Stephanie Azaria describes, the best way to travel in a worm hole is as if we are on an adventure ride and have our hands in the air. Because the wormhole opened with Sagittarian New Moon conjunct the Great Attractor Black Hole (14 Sagittarius), we can count on there being an element of adventure, some unexpected clearing, and the fortitude needed to address any situation effectively.
Cancer disposes the Moon, and this part of our consciousness is in its glory when there is a Full Moon. The Full Moon enters 0 Cancer just a few hours after the solstice, which is something that everyone experiences on the planet, where ever you may be located. Our
emotional cores are fully accessible and any emotions we may feel are appropriate and necessary. The symbol for the Cancer part of our consciousness is the river, and as such provides the mechanism and means for processing our feelings. If our feelings start flowing in abundance, this quality of our Selves is best experienced by taking at least three deep breaths, so we can have the core Cancer experience of just “being” for a moment or two.
The Full Moon is in a bridge with the Sun at 0 Capricorn, in a remarkable stellium (grouping) comprised of Quaoar (where we access new ways of thinking) also at 0 Capricorn, Ixion (where we call in our soul’s purpose) at 27 Sagittarius, and Saturn at 10 Capricorn (where we create definition and authority). This stellium touches how we identify our Selves (the Sun) with how we feel about Source, God, or any form of inspiration that takes us to Unity Consciousness. Cancer is where we access our core feelings and process these as emotional energy. This bridge creates the opportunity to explore how much we trust and place confidence in our deepest feelings about faith, the direction of our lives, and our evolution as spiritual beings having a physical experience. It is a remarkable moment because the bridge can be accessed so easily to get to the observer’s perch. If anything feels constrictive, restrictive, or even improbable, please look again. The presence of Quaoar and Ixion creates an environment for an entirely different experience, where we may feel a renewal of faith, self-confidence, and purpose.
For the third time in a row (the past Sagittarius New Full and the Gemini Full Moon), we have a Power Grand Crossroad (formerly a cardinal Grand Cross). This one is comprised of the Moon/Sun bridge intersecting with the Light bridge between two 5D planets: MakeMake (where we access divine law) at 6 Libra and Salacia (where we access our ability to discern light and shadow) at 1 Aries. We are able to see-- within ourSelves first—more nuances and complexity and the recognition that there is a universal urge for Truth shared by all humans. We may feel ourselves newly drawn to the five human values of truth, right conduct, peace, love, and non-violence, which taken together comprise a full vision of human potential. We may feel the urge to put these into action within our internal and external environments. At the same time we can extend some forgiveness to others as we recognize that no light exists without shadow, and we co-create these. This is a real opportunity to step out of the current narrative about motivations of others that we may be telling ourselves. Let’s give each other a break for a moment.

The Sun is part of a Finger of God formed by the resource (formerly sextile) between Sedna (where we access our Diving feminine heritage) at 26 Taurus and Varuna (where we find the highest vision we can hold) at 2 Leo, both in an inconjunct with the Sun at 0 Capricorn. This Finger of God presents a choice –to restructure our personal identity and relationship with authority (Sun in Capricorn) with a vision that holds the Divine Feminine as equal authority as our reverence for the Divine Masculine within ourselves and within the social structures we live in. Either arm (the inconjunct) forming the Finger of God will take us to the same place, as the resource between Sedna and Varuna is supportive. These new planetary archetypes are as much part of our consciousness as the Sun is, and this is a good opportunity to exercise them.
Punctuating the Full Moon is the other ongoing Power Crossroad. This is comprised of the Soul Star at 27 Capricorn conjunct the Black Moon Lilith (where we express our Divine Feminine Selves) at 28 Capricorn, the bridging the Earth Star at 28 Cancer (North and South Nodes of the Moon). This ongoing bridge is activating all our core issues about how we feel about governing ourselves with whatever structure of authority we relate to. The Crossroad is formed with the bridge between Uranus (where we wake up) at 29 Aries and Haumea (how we create unity consciousness) at 26 Libra.
The Cancer Full Moon takes us to the core of who we are. Our Cancer consciousness is the wellspring from which we experience the world. Our sense are nothing without the feelings they stimulate. Or perhaps it is our feelings that stimulate our senses. It is important to recognize that this is a point of self-mastery, where we understand the difference between the two and that they are intrinsically separate and also intertwined.
A specific feeling can make one feel isolated or further define our individuality. If this feeling becomes overwhelming it is good to think on something the wise teacher Derek O’Neill once said: “How do you save a drop of water? Return it to the ocean.” We can use this Full Moon to let the feelings we may have been struggling with release into our own rivers of e-motion, and we will feel greater energy and the renewal we may have been longing for.
