Scandals are about to be exposed (some with more details) in the public square. Things people wish they didn’t know but need to know will come out. People are hurt and people will be getting angrier. This Full Moon in Cancer gives us a chance to speak about what has affected us emotionally and what we value, yet do it with coolness.
The Moon enters the sign it rules, the cardinal water sign of Cancer at 5:08 PM PST /8:08 pm EST / January 4, 2:08 AM CEST in Central Europe. This is normally a comforting, sensitive, nurturing, “soft” lunation; however, this one will not be because it opposes Pluto in Capricorn and both the Moon and Pluto will not only oppose one another, they will square Uranus in Aries. Expect to be involved in or hear about protests, power struggles, challenges and changes, endings and important information being revealed about covert often dark nasty deeds. Karma is about to slam down things on the floor in front of us and we won’t be able to step over them.
The Sabian Symbol for this lunation is Cancer 15. A Group Of People Who Have Overeaten And Enjoyed It
Organization X Scandal
The karmic point before this full moon is represented by Cancer 14. A Very Old Man Facing A Vast Dark Space To The Northeast.
There is a case now that a certain organization has been ignoring since May 2014, in hopes that the whistleblower will simply disappear. I am aware of a scandalous situation that has been hidden and festering like a pus-filled sore at Organization X. This organization, which is supposed to care for people of all backgrounds, has been involved in racism in the workplace as well as wrongful termination and active abuse of and/or ignoring of whistleblowers. I have listened to audio tapes of it and read a stack of communications lasting nearly one year from the whistleblower to Organization X and communications from it indicating they obviously know they have done wrong. Weekly the whistleblower asks for justice on paper and weekly Organization X callously ignores the request.
The Integrity Department of Organization X refuses to communicate with the whistleblower and has told other employees to ignore the situation, inflaming it to this point of public exposure. This degree, Cancer 14, reveals that this respected organization has a dilemma to face and has been hiding in the dark.
Taking just this one situation in hand, let’s examine the Sabian Symbol for this lunation: Cancer 15. A Group Of People Who Have Overeaten And Enjoyed It. This organization has been doing injustice and not only refusing to correct it and settle with the whistleblower, but has suppressed it in order to continue expanding on donations from the public. If the public knew what has been transpiring for nearly a year, it would lose worldwide donations and governmental support.
The quest degree, representing what is coming for this organization, is Cancer 16. A Man Before A Square With A Manuscript Scroll Before Him.
Plain and simple, Organization X will be exposed for it’s power play and refusing to do justice (Pluto in Capricorn). The whistleblower is emotionally devastated at being made vulnerable (Moon in Cancer). Things have built to a boiling point (Uranus in Aries) and this lunation will likely set off more protests. This Sabian Symbol degree is about the public broadcasting of something the public must know and it will not be good news. It will be heard and it will be believed after it is exposed. The most intelligent thing this organization and anyone hiding a dark secret can do is to quietly do justice by compensating the whistleblower and clear the dilemma to avoid damaging themselves that will be long-remembered.
Bill Cosby Rape Scandal
Much beloved comedian Bill Cosby has been accused by more than two dozen women of rape and sexual assault, and many report being drugged. The allegations are shocking. Family-oriented TV-father Bill Cosby?! some say. However others say they have known for two decades or more and simply said nothing, figuring nothing could be done because of Cosby’s power. Wealthy and famous supermodel businessman Beverly Johnson is among the accusers. Her credibility is rock solid. More than 20 women, who were not all suddenly and mysteriously taken with mental illness and like Beverly Johnson, are not in need of Cosby’s money, are telling us they were drugged, raped and sexually assaulted. Are we listening? Will we shrug our shoulders and look the other way? No. People are angry. Things have built up to a boiling point (Uranus in Aries) and people are willing to speak truth to power (Pluto in Capricorn). So what happens now?
Resolution Of The Cross
The Full Moon in Cancer (14° 31″ Cancer) , which occurs on January 4, 2015 at 8:53 PM PST / 11:53 PM EST ( January 5, 2015 at 75;53 AM CEST in Central Europe touches off the Cardinal Grand Cross of April 29, 2014, which occurred at 13º degrees of the Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. This means there will be resolution and completion. Struggles which occurred then will finally be brought to a point of fruition. People will be getting down off the cross and getting some justice in their situations because they are angry and not going to silently stand being hung in limbo anymore. We saw endings when Saturn left Scorpio and ingressed Sagittarius on December 23, 2014. Expect more now.
Cutting the Umbilical Cord
A related manifestation of this lunation regards what I call cutting the umbilical cord. They have expected their actual mothers (and fathers), a mother-/father- figure, the state, the federal government or a company to give, give, give to them. They have expected extremely high salaries starting out from college and refused to leave their parent’s homes unless they can get a nearly six-figure job allowing them to have all the toys their parents and grandparents only got after 20 or 30 years of hard work. They expect instant gratification. While doing this, they take time to protest the 1%, the government and anyone who has more than them. While there is some merit to the arguments about excess, there is also a need to stand on one’s own feet and not walk around with a sense of entitlement when you have not contributed to society or the nanny/welfare state of which you take advantage. People may well be asked to look at their stance and ask “Am I a hypocrite?”
Some people have been sitting at the table too long, feasting on others and ravaging human lives — taking to much and it is time for them to stop or be stopped. People may well begin talking about how the umbilical cord to the nanny-state must be cut. Does it need to happen in your life?
Dealing with the Cancer Full Moon
A key to dealing well with this lunation’s energy is to BREATHE and allow some fresh air into your space. Give your mind time to think, give your lungs some fresh air (take a walk to think about what to say and how to say it).
Venus AND Mercury will be in Aquarius this weekend (with Mercury staying in the sign for six weeks). DO what you must, say what you must, but think before you do and then lay it out rationally, logically and carefully. Do not be afraid to speak truth to power or take a sand in your life for justice and humanity. Venus and Mercury want you to do it with the kind of honesty and cool and maybe a bit if humor that, say, Paul Newman or Justin Timberlake would use. USE YOUR WORDS (and no the four-letter ones); blow apart your oppressor with a calmly intelligent and yet heartfelt revelation of their dark deeds. Lay it out and read it aloud in the public square. Tell the story, broadcast the scandal, and do it direct to the people through social networking/social media (Uranus in Aries). Blog it. Tweet it. Facebook it. Instagram it. Tell it to a reporter.
This lunation, occurring in the arms of Venus and Mercury in Aquarius, is a cosmic call to practice detachment, rationality, logical thinking and a little more intellectual perspective — instead of being a hotheaded rebel without a cause, protesting and criticizing without a solution in mind or saying/doing something sarcastic and rude.
Use the next five days for communicating, socializing and networking from the heart about what you value.
