A Welcome Change Of Pace | Full Moon In Cancer

By December 26, 2020 Astrology

Dear Friends,

Have you been feeling a bit trapped in your daily routine or living environment?

Well, get ready for a positive shift! Greater freedom is on the horizon, and with the full moon in Cancer, change will be taking place either in your immediate environment, or through your personal habits and emotions. 

If you were a hermit crab, your environment would be the shell containing you. It seems that lately, your shell has been feeling a little too tight. 

You’ve gotten bigger from all the experiences and wisdom you’ve gained in 2020, and are in search of new environmental or emotional experiences that will better support you in all the ways you want to expand, evolve and exist.

The upcoming full moon in Cancer on December 29th is assisting this mission of yours.

With a gentle beam of genius and breakthrough from the planet Uranus, the internal, environmental changes you’ve been wanting to make for some time are starting to become a reality.

Heading into 2021, this full moon couldn’t have come at a more perfect time. Over the coming days, you will naturally start to forge new habits that will bring you greater success in the new year.

Starting with the full moon, the planets are lining up to make 2021 a very different year than last.

Let’s take a look at what this moon has in store for you.

Releasing Old Habits

The past can often be a source of comfort, even if it has left you with scars and sadness.

With the full moon in Cancer in a harmonious aspect to Uranus, you are entering a period when you will be able to shed old comforts that are no longer needed or useful. 

You are ready to break free and create a much needed change of pace in your life, which will help you more authentically meet your current emotional needs. 

During the window of the full moon, starting now until January 1st, you will begin to feel a heightened sense of what is or isn’t in alignment for you. 

The Moon rules your habits, perceptions, your home and sense of security, so this will be the area where adjustments are taking place in your life. 

Whatever has been holding you back from growing internally, or feeling genuinely safe and secure, will start to become obvious. Depending on where you are in your life, your insight will become clear either through conflicts or opportunities. 

If change comes in the form of conflict, the stress of old patterns you’ve been holding on to will start to become unbearable. If this is the case for you, keep in mind you’re not being punished. The cosmos is highlighting hidden issues in your life so you can see your blind spots and move forward.

If change comes in the form of opportunities, new experiences, sudden insights, and fresh perceptions will bring you psychic renewal. You will start to see the uselessness of certain personal habits, and find life-affirming inspiration through the release of these old patterns.

It’s quite possible you will experience a combination of conflict and opportunity.

Remember, however this energy manifests for you, if you want the insights coming to you now to REALLY take root in your future, you must take action on them this full moon.

The cosmos moves in a never-ending dance of change and growth. Each personal victory builds on the last. Each failure provides valuable information about how to do things differently in the future. 

Greater emotional freedom, release from the past, and positive new habits are within reach now. 

By fearlessly taking care of your emotional needs, nurturing yourself, and discovering what brings you genuine comfort and ease over the next few days, you will begin to create a personal rhythm that will bring you much satisfaction into the future. 

The more honest you are about your real needs, the more enjoyment you will unlock in your body and soul. 

Don’t be afraid of saying “no” to others, or turning down a social engagement if you’re just not feeling it. This full moon is for YOU, so stay true to yourself.

If you are currently facing a big question in your love life, the way forward might not be as clear as you had hoped.

A tough aspect between Venus, planet of love, and Neptune, planet of confusion and spirituality, might have you second-guessing your connection over the coming days.

Awkward Feelings

Lately, getting to the bottom of a confusing situation has been a big theme for you, and will continue to be during the full moon in Cancer. 

Over the last month, Neptune has squared the Sun, Moon, and Mercury, and now it’s Venus’ turn. 

With Venus and Neptune at odds, you will need to double check your impression of a romantic situation, and make sure you have all your facts straight.

It’s also possible insecurities about your appearance, self-worth, or lovability will come up strongly over the next few days. If you start to feel strange, odd, or out of place, remember this is just a passing influence.

Keep in mind, any insecure feelings you may have are coming from false, negative beliefs about your self-worth. If you simply notice these feelings instead of identifying with them, they can be questioned and healed during this time.

One of the best ways to heal during this transit is with positive affirmations in front of the mirror.

To do so, simply stand in front of a mirror and take in all your features, lines, and curves. Find something beautiful about each part of yourself you typically judge. 

Beam love and acceptance into your gorgeous self. Speak out loud the opposite of any negative or self deprecating thoughts you carry about yourself, and watch your beauty become more and more radiant.

Remember to be careful about over indulging in drugs or alcohol over the new year, as it may be extra tempting to use substances to escape the awkward feelings cropping up right now.

It’s possible you could suffer a major disappointment over the coming days. If this is the case for you, try to remember that your perception of the other person or situation was never accurate to begin with, so the thing you feel like you’re losing is more likely a creation of your own mind than a reality. 

Overall, this full moon is overflowing with the potential for real change through the power of honesty – both with yourself and others.

Take good care and stay safe over the holidays!

I’ll see you in the new year!

In the beauty of truth,

Luna Dragonwell

    Today’s reading doesn’t apply to me. I am stuck in a small town that died many years ago. No jobs, no vehicule in which to find one, havent met anyone in the 2yrs I have been here, so no relationships. It would take alot of magic to change my situation.

  • Thank you luna , for today’s readings , all you said was right , I don’t know what to do in my life, about the man I had come to love deeply , I don’t know if feel the same , but what I know I love him with everything in me thanks luna

Enjoyment keeping someone kept within their own self traps due to whatever they are given no right to anyone add to their hard to fund your wellbeing. How does it matter when it appears to be given everything 1 needs but what I actually need?

    Its always been difficult making decisions for me this year- and last has been quite the emotional roller coaster losing my cat last year whom I used as a confidante and someone to talk to when hubby was refusing to confide in me about his problems, then hubby got ill and the effects from that not only aged him but the collapses they caused eventually killed him, now even knowing that nothing happens without a reason or a lesson I’ve spent much of the last 5 months trying to figure out what it is, I wanted to be looked after rather than the one everyone leans on but even he leaned on me at times though he would apologise when he had to through this now I’m alone except for my son as all the groups and classes I might have joined are closed as are other social outlets too, I really would like to know what you think I’ve not fallen apart as I know some can from this kind of loss as I know I have responsibilities that cant be put off things that he was planning to do once he was 60 drew a pension and cut his hours anyway though it’d be handy if he could have been here to advise I wish I knew what this is teaching me

  • susan mee says:

    Hi Luna…I desperately need your help. I am a lady in my 60’s…my life long partner died three and half years ago, I have been in contact with a man friend for the last eighteen month’s. We seem to get on very good and have a strong connection and we want the same thing…to be happy and contented in our life together. I’m not sure if he is the real deal…my heart tells me he is the right one to bring my happiness and joy into my life…but I need some divine advice about this, so can you help me please? Our future together would mean that I would need to relocate also,

  • Alexis says:

    I’m been waiting to know answer to a certain question concerning my lover .

  • Vanessa R Probert says:

    Thank you for this article! It definitely explains alot! I am confused about a romantic relationship in my life and need clarity as to whether I should move on from it or go with the flow. I cant tell what he wants, or if he is into me like he says he is. He doesn’t communicate very well.

  • Sa says:

    Hi, Luna,
    Thanks for this beautiful insight. I am very ‍♀️ confused as well in my relationship whether is the right kind of “hard”. I don’t feel that teammate vibe is more he is on his own, I am on my own and many times I feel disappointment and discontent in this relationship. I feel that I want more but in the same time I know I need to accept situation as it is in order to move forward. I have this internal conflict and it’s painful. My only hope is that maybe if I met more my emotional needs and I accept myself maybe the dynamic will change for the better because I perceive him as absent emotionally. What I would really like is for him to confront more the situation and to sacrifice less for my own sake and after blaming me for his own actions. I would love him to be more accountable with his actions
    There is a turning point in my life related to this relationship. Whether I move with him abroad as a couple whether we split and we move on separately so God knows. What gives me courage was reading all the other comments. From what I see whenever is a relationship a lot of issues may arrive and confusion is nothing new.

    • Hi Sa, since we can’t make anyone do anything they don’t want to or aren’t ready for, perhaps a good question to ask is if you’d still want to be with him if he never changes. Life is too short to spend your precious time waiting for others to come into alignment. Move forward with your own desires for your life, and alignment will happen naturally.

  • Yvone says:

  • Leena says:

    I’m having a major issue with my husband of 19 years. We have two small children together, 4 & 6. He’s been having an affair for nearly 2 years. The other woman is who filled me in on it March 2020. All of quarantine my husband stayed. We never did marriage counseling and he never cut communication with her. On December 13th he left in the middle of the night & decided he needed to go be with her. He ruined Christmas for the kids and his entire Family is in the know of everything and has been supporting me through the whole thing. Every single family member has been trying to talk sense into him all of quarantine. The other woman has 3 kids with two different fathers and she comes from a broken family where even her own mother and brother don’t speak to her anymore. There are many red flags with this woman. My kids are super heartbroken and are having such a hard time. The affair and betrayal aren’t as painful to me as seeing how much my kids are suffering because of this. I love my husband and want him back. He is 41 and perhaps this may be tied to a mid-life crisis. He shared with me that he fell out of me years ago and regrets not handling things better. Since he has known this woman my husband has become a pathological liar and expresses himself in a narcissistic manner. Not just to me, but to his family as well. At this point it’s going to be tough to forgive him for hurting the children, it’s as though he doesn’t care or love them. I do still feel I could take him back with conditions/boundaries. But he has said he’s done and it’s too late for us now. His family agrees, however, that if the other woman wasn’t in the picture, then my husband would not be acting this way and would be on bird with marriage counseling and giving us a solid chance at a second relationship with each other.
    I’m a Cancer, he’s a Gemini, and I believe the other woman is a Scorpio. In a nutshell, I really want him back and to do the right thing for our family’s sake … how can he really believe and be so in love with this woman enough to leave me and the kids behind and his entire Family (mother, father, sister, brother, etc)?!

    • Leena says:

      I just verified… the other woman’s birthday is on 10/20 so she is a Libra.

    • Viviane Paolini says:

      Leave him, he is not worth the stress you have and the unhappiness of your kids.
      He said he fell out of love for you, at least he was honest and you should have left him long ago.
      When you will be free, there is another man that will really love you.

    • This sounds very painful Leena. It’s important to listen to what people tell you and accept their behavior rather than trying to change them. As soon as you let go, your family can start grieving and healing. Make boundaries now and don’t allow him to come in and out of your life. You can recover from this, and your future will be brighter for it. If he decides to return at some point, that’s up to him. Then, you will be in a position to make rules for his behavior. Take your power back!

  • Rose says:

    I really enjoyed this article. Thank you ☺️
    I do need some clarity on my romantic status ☹️ I’m not sure where I’m going or what I’m doing with this guy. We’ve had so much history going on 5 years but I’ve been hurt and still keep him around in my life. I need some guidance because I’m really confused on why I’m still focusing my energy on him.

    • Hi Rose, it sounds like you could have low self-esteem. Is there something about your dynamic that reinforces a negative self-image you may have? My advice would be to start healing your heart, standing up for yourself and your true feelings, and treating yourself like someone you really, really love and want to protect. Wishing you all the best <3

  • Thank you very much it’s very good I am very interested this

  • Sharon Butitta says:

    I am confused about Love. My x husband (We were married 15 years and then he married someone else a year later). His wife is dying of cancer. I entered AA 20 years ago when we divorced. Or a man 35 years sober who cares for me but we havn’t dated in like 5 years. Or just remain single and do life myself. ???
