Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer, January 10, 2020

If we didn’t pay attention to our personal Capricorn message on the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, then we better wake up and open our eyes because the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 20° 00′ Cancer on 10 January 2020, 11:21 AM PDT, is going to hit us up again. This time the Saturn-Pluto conjunction conjoins the Capricorn Sun-Mercury and opposes the Cancer Moon. This is a hardcore dose of reality!

If there is a savior to be found on this lunation, it will be Neptune in Pisces, sextile the Capricorn stellium and trine the Cancer Moon. We need to have faith something better will eventually appear to replace whatever losses we experience now. The key word here is ‘eventually’ because Saturn in Capricorn is noted for insisting we work hard for any gains. Choosing denial is not a good option as it will only delay the pain of dealing with loss. The best thing we can do for ourselves is to practice mature, responsible behaviors and treat others with kindness, respect and compassion. Please don’t expect quick fixes or instant results because those are not in the cards for the time being. Instant karma is very possible. *grin*

Mars in Sagittarius is irritated because he is inconjunct ever unpredictable Uranus in Taurus. This is a freedom loving Mars who enjoys cruising along at high speed. Running into unexpected speed bumps is bound to ignite his temper. It’s probably a good thing this Mars usually cools down as fast as he explodes.

Venus in Aquarius and Jupiter in Capricorn are all sitting on the sidelines. Venus is in the last decan of Aquarius at 26° and will make no aspects except to the Moon until she reaches Pisces on January 13. Jupiter is still in the first decan of Capricorn at 08°, and will have much more input in the days to come. There is a purity of expression to unaspected planets in a lunation chart and unless they are transiting our personal natal chart, we may not notice much impact from them.

In general, lunations on the Cancer-Capricorn axis highlight issues involving the balance between home and family with our professional lives. The powerful stellium in Capricorn suggests some have been feeding far too much energy into their careers and/or being recognized in the public arena, perhaps at the expense of family. We can also look at the house in our natal charts where Capricorn falls to see if those matters have been absorbing the lion’s share of our attention. Taking time to turn within and examine how we feel about what’s happening in our lives would be a wise move. Not tending to emotional needs can build resentment very quickly.

There is not much wiggle room on this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer. The strong cardinal emphasis and all those planets in pragmatic Capricorn is pretty much the whole story. It won’t hurt to remember all oppositions are in compatible signs and it is possible to find the common ground necessary to resolve our differences. It’s time to let go of what isn’t working, take responsibility for our actions, avoid obsessive behaviors and practice being a good human being. Above all, practice kindness, tolerance and patience. Peace to all.
