Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer Chart: January 10, 2020

On Friday afternoon, a Full Moon occurs in the sign of Cancer. This is an especially potent Full Moon, as it is a Lunar Eclipse. With the Cancer-Capricorn axis involved, this Lunar Eclipse presses us to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants in our lives concerning the balance between our private lives, domesticity, our need for a home base, and nurturance (represented by Cancer) versus our public lives, careers, reputation, and accountability (represented by Capricorn). Attachments and love are ruled by Cancer, while achievements and rewards/punishments are ruled by Capricorn.

In some ways, this polarity deals with the balance between unconditional love and conditional love. Cancer encourages us to value our home base and our roots, while Capricorn persuades us to consider our sense of duty and responsibility along public or professional lines. While Cancer may be content to be dependent, Capricorn urges us to be grown-up and responsible. Cancer represents the origin, and Capricorn represents the goal. Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do.

This Full Moon is about balancing our commitment to our career and families. Something has been building inside of us, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the coming weeks and months, we’ll discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t seem to sit on our feelings. We need to express them. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict. Some sort of crisis (which can be a crisis of consciousness) or sudden awareness of a lack in our lives provides us with a golden opportunity to explore our emotional needs within the context of the house polarity where the eclipse occurs in our natal charts. Relationships may be challenged, broken, or strengthened dramatically at this time. Our discovery is emotionally charged and dramatic. Epiphanies are likely at this time as we become acutely aware of our lack. This understanding can propel us into positive action.

Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses bring issues in our lives to fulfillment. Our emotions are heightened, and there is often some sort of drama involved with the house, sign, and any contacted planets activated by the Full Moon. Look to 10 degrees of Cancer (and Capricorn) in your own chart. This Lunar Eclipse gives us a cosmic push to make needed changes in our lives. The areas of life activated by the eclipse may see dramatic turns, after which the path is clear to move forward. Note that whatever “happens” at this time is nothing truly new. The issues have been brewing inside of us, and emotions have been building. Something comes to light at the time of the Full Moon, and if we get in touch with our emotions, we can get a better idea of what needs to change, or what needs to go.

This Lunar Eclipse in Cancer is bound to thrust us into a state of heightened awareness of flaws in the structures of our lives, in our homes and family structures. Decisions made now are emotionally-driven. It occurs when the Sun is aligned with (and just days before) the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. We’re challenged to face our attachments, emotions, and needs for nurture at this time, even though it’s been very much about where we’re heading these days! Note that June’s Solar Eclipse will bring on the new beginnings related to this eclipse’s epiphanies and realizations.

This eclipse occurs at the superior conjunction between the Sun and Mercury, emphasizing the power of words and rationalization. There can be a real dichotomy between what our heads and our hearts are telling us. Nervous tension can result as we feel pressure to make decisions. The Cancer Moon is opposing quite a roundup of planets in its opposite sign, Capricorn, and there can be a sudden awareness of our emotions in the face of the rules and our ambitions. Initially, we can feel extremely sensitive and perhaps somewhat powerless. However, our feelings count, and we’ll see and feel their power now, paving the road for new directions.

This is a time to continue to clear up past patterns that have been holding us back from personal fulfillment, particularly those that are home or family-centered or that revolve around our work-home balance and attitudes toward comfort and responsibility. There will be more work to come in these areas, but for now, we are experiencing a greater awareness of problems and especially lacks or flaws.

Through events, circumstances, and epiphanies occurring around the time of this eclipse, we learn that we need to get in touch with our needs for nurture, family, comfort, familiarity, and love in order for our lives, including our professional lives, to be full and worthwhile.

This phase of the Moon occurs at 20 degrees and 0 minutes of Cancer opposite the Sun at 20 degrees 00 minutes of Capricorn, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 15 to 25 degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) most significantly.
