Full Moon in Cancer 01/25/2024

The full Moon takes place on January 25 at 12:54 pm, EST, in sidereal Cancer at 11 degrees of Pushya Vedic astronomical star, opposite Pluto.


Cancer is the sign of our emotional security and security in general as well. It is related to our home and our land. It connects us with our psychological well being and peace of mind and heart. Pluto being opposite indicates that there are power struggles, and that there are feelings of uneasiness in relationships, and fear of being manipulated, controlled, and overpowered.


While the Vedic star Pushya is ruled by Brihaspati, known as the nourisher. The mother energy is strong here, where we seek to help, protect, and nourish others. Brihaspati is the deity of wisdom and truth, especially our inner truth and divine truth connected to God. He is the deity and priest of speech and mantra and is highly connected to knowledge and even secret knowledge that is found in the occult and metaphysical realm.


This is a time to connect to our inner truth and to nourish and protect it. We may want to protect our physical home as well, as we may feel a certain threat in the air. Gaining knowledge and finding truth is important now more than ever. Brihaspati supports our endeavours to learn and gain understanding and helps us flourish on this path of truth. Pushya makes things flower and blossom or develop.


The Sun is conjunct Pluto in the sign of Capricorn, which relates to the governments and rulers of the world, and the financial and material world. Important issues connected to trust, power and manipulation are rising and taking center stage now.

Mars and Mercury make an exact conjunction on this full Moon day in the sign of Sagittarius, attacks and disputes are on the horizon, try to avoid them as best you can. Uranus is standing still and getting ready to turn direct, this causes major surprises and disruptions to occur such as earthquakes especially. Major changes are coming at the governmental and societal level and this for the next 20 years or so during the Pluto transit in Capricorn.


Another thing is that Pushya is ruled by Saturn, and Saturn is 8th from the full Moon, which indicates sudden crises and profound transformations at the humanitarian level as Saturn sits in Aquarius. There is a vital need for healing on so many levels, especially psychologically and holistically.


No matter what happens externally, is it important to nourish ourselves and others internally and emotionally, which is what this full Moon reminds us. And to connect to higher or eternal truths.
