lunar eclipse in cancer- 1/10/20- honor the Mother

by | Jan 9, 2020 | Lunar Insight

The first Full Moon of the new year and new decade is exact on Friday January 10th 2020 at 11:21am PST. This full moon marks the midpoint of the eclipse portal we are in that began with the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on December 25th 2019. Eclipse portals are times of RADICAL change, endings and new beginnings and to have one spanning the end of a year, the end of a decade and the end of a 38 year Saturn/Pluto cycle is pretty potent (read: intense!!!).

This is a striking Full Moon- called the Wolf Moon as the Full Moon will be near Sirius the Dog Star. In the Full Moon chart we have the moon at 20’00 cancer opposite the entire Capricorn Confluence of South Node, Jupiter, Sun, Mercury, Ceres, Saturn and Pluto. This pits the Divine Feminine/Great Mother energy opposite the Toxicity of the Patriarchal Paradigm. Truly all this Capricorn energy with heavy hitters like the Karmic South Node, the Lord of Karma (Saturn) and the Lord of Death (Pluto) is really magnifying what is out of balance, out of integrity, stuck, stagnant and old paradigm about the way things have been going for all of us collectively on the planet.

At the worst this Capricorn energy is about consolidation of power, control and domination. It’s about holding on rigidly to old traditions and ways of being that no longer serve. At best this Capricorn energy is about HUGE transformation of the structures and foundations in our lives- personally, politically, globally and environmentally. Add Ceres the Great Mother to the picture and the spotlight is most definitely on Mother Earth, the Environment and how natural disasters and man made disasters are wreaking havoc on our beloved planet Earth.

This Full Moon in Cancer says HONOR YOUR MOTHER. Earth is our Mother and we cannot just dump our toxic shit into her air (her/our breathe), her water (her/our blood) and her soil (her/our body). The fact that we don’t seem to fully get this- or at least the people with all the money doing the toxic dumping don’t seem to get this- is BEYOND ME. We are ALL HUMAN and we all eat the same food, breathe the same air and drink the same water. What is toxic for one is toxic for all- and we cannot treat our Earth like a dumping ground. Raping and pillaging our Mother for profit is like raping and pillaging ourselves. As without, so within.

Of course recently things have escalated around War but seem to have cooled down at the moment. Threatening to take down countries and leaders with ballistic missiles and weapons of mass destruction is PURE INSANITY. Not just because innocent people die and the land gets poisoned. But because it keeps us in WAR CONSCIOUSNESS- which keeps us split and polarized between Us and Them, Good and Bad, Pure and Evil. The way we have been doing things is not sustainable. Things need to radically change.

I am of the belief that the way towards healing is doing deep Inner Work and Shadow Work. The War without reflects the War within. We cannot heal outer violence if we don’t heal the split in our own psyches. I am offering my Astrology & Your Shadow Course for the 2nd time this year with the first class starting on January 29th- specifically to support you in doing this deep Inner Work! I teach you how to use your Astrology Chart to illuminate your Shadow and then work with it in embodied, experiential ways. I hope you will join me! For more information click here-

In this Full Moon chart we have a lovely trine to Neptune- with both Moon and Neptune in rulership (the signs they rule). This is a time to let the Higher Heart lead! Compassion and Unconditional Love when paired with healthy boundaries, grounding, responsibility and integrity- IS THE FORCE THAT WILL HEAL THE WORLD!

Just 6-7 hours after this eclipse we have Uranus station direct and then Eris does the same. Two sudden, revealing and rebellious planets at a standstill are going to make for a VERY INTERESTING weekend. Add to that two days later we have the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in tight aspect to Ceres the Great Mother and you can safely say the astrology this weekend is some of the biggest in 2020.

There is an interesting Grand Cross in Full Moon chart between Moon in Cancer opposite Saturn/Pluto/Ceres- with all of them square to Eris in Aries opposite Juno in Libra. All the Cardinal points are activated and its highlighting relationships, agreements and contracts (individual and political/global). In any relationship be it between two people or two countries- there is Independence and there is Interconnection. How we navigate that is going to be the utmost of importance. We cannot just be coming from a place of “You do it my way or I am out”. That would be too shadow Aries/Mars and Warlike. We also cannot just be passive with no spine- that would be too shadow Libra/Venus and Vicitimized.

The asteroid Kassandra is part of the Grand Cross. She is the Prophetess who could see into the future but no one believed her. She is there with Sun/Mercury/Ceres/Saturn/Pluto and she represents the voices that are trying to warn us. There are Seers that can see where we are heading on the track we currently are taking. These people need to be listened to!

Add into the picture the asteroid Isis who is opposite Saturn and Pluto and on the Moon- and we see the split between the Feminine and Masculine, between the Light and Shadow. The story of Set killing Osiris is a Greek/Roman telling of the myth. Pre-Greco/Roman invasion of Egypt Isis, Nephthys, Osiris and Set were the Sacred Quaternity and they each brought an energy that balanced the Whole. Light and Dark Masculine balanced Light and Dark Feminine. The Four in Unison and Wholeness served as caretakers of the land. Then the Greeks and Romans came with their beliefs in good and evil and they made Set into Satan and they tried to remove Nephthys from the picture (this is why most people have not heard of a twin of Isis). If we want wholeness we need to reclaim ALL OUR PARTS- both Dark and Bright, both Shadow and Light.

If you are ready to do this deep work come join me and other Heart Warriors ready to show up for their Inner Work. We are the Ones we have been waiting for! To heal the Split we must turn within.

I leave you with Ellias Lonsdale’s Star Sparks degrees for the Saturn/Pluto conjunction and the two degrees Eris transits this year. All three are profound. Meditate on them and listen to the messages you receive. <3 Blessings… ~DH SATURN/PLUTO Capricorn 23 An old priest using oil to anoint a carved stone lingam Command of ancient forces. The set apart path of one who must recapitulate previous karmic attainments and make sure to fulfill them now in a quintessential fashion. Driven by destiny from the start in unmistakable ways. Guided to hold true to lineage, to stick with the hidden teachings, and to regenerate the old stock by waking up within it, as this life time inevitably pulls toward. Detached witness consciousness. Inwardly timeless and sage-like. Gifted in acute discernment. Most adept at the very things modern consciousness slides over and misses. The throwback. Bearing a grave continence, a solemn presence. Purposive, concentrated, no fooling around. Set definite ritual tasks within the framework of research, investigation, and uncovering hidden clues and cues. Brilliant in ways that can go quite far. If training and opportunity permit, a boundless supply of useable awareness to fulfill the task and keep at it. Not to be denied. Involved within the ancient masculine brotherhood hierarchies, and guiding streams. Working from behind the scenes. Wielding power with strength and determination. Not very receptive and easy going. Far more emphasizing the virtues of dedication and commitment. Missing many parts that would complete the picture. Narrowly, one-pointedly setting out upon a destiny course that is supported by previous lives and hidden forces. Instruction as constant from the dawn of the world to the indefinite future. Most deeply gifted with the rare ability to tap a vital sourcespring that never runs dry. This can go on forever. It only get stronger and clearer as it ripens and holds steady. ERIS TRANSIT Aries 24 A harp which plays itself I empty myself of my own experience and I am filled by what we are moving through here. I deprive myself of the privilege to make my own music. Then the music that exists finds that I am just the one to tune and respond. I am greatly delighted to be able to make way. It releases me from the burden of separative selfhood. Each arising occasion becomes yet another opportunity to divest myself of baggage and become attuned to something I’ve never had before, I’ve never been ready to make way for till now. When I am on, everything that needs to happen flows through me and I facilitate events, experiences, encounters, epiphanies. That frequency of staying on the beam with what arises in the free moment is where I can shine, for I know how to be light, clear, effortless. I am aware of what it takes to let all of us be present, each of us as fully as we can be in this crystalline breath. I do not know what to do with myself when I am supposed to get on with my own concerns. I have nothing really to do. I only come alive when the pulse is engaged. There is nothing else to even prepare for or pretend to be aroused by. So I come across as simple-pointed and almost narrow. I certainly am purposive and steady on. But it’s the receptivity, the availability, the quiet interior resource which is actually what I manifest in this life. I am a partner in a dance. I am one part of a greater whole. My facet is complete unto itself. Yet it really takes a shared moment for this to come alive as intended. I live for the sensation of being tapped, of being asked to give of my essence and let the truth resound all through my being. How can I not seek the charged moment of encounter? I am the breath of new life, awaiting winds that blow. Aries 25 A great dragon asleep in a cave The dark deep inside seeking to emerge from a spell, from an enchantment, from a curse. The shadows, the beast, the serpent, the dragon of legend and myth stirring, restlessly, pervasively, bringing forth longings and desires previously suppressed and denied. Secrets and mysteries. Realms within realms. So much to get back in touch with now. A promise to the children of the future to come alive at the appointed times. The inquiries of karma and of destiny. That which cannot be understood, will not conform to convention. A wildness, a raw primal quality of needing an immense outlet for a huge energy that never had a place here. A desperate drive to let these things emerge, or else feel trapped and stuffed and caught in meaningless retrials of self avoidance at all cost. An emotional energy of ferocious intensity. So deep. So forbidden. So strange to the modern ways. Called to merge, to tap the depths, to activate the dormant powers for the sake of the whole. An absolutely extraordinary ability to draw forth what was hidden in each and all. A threshold capacity to elicit confidence and strength and new forces in those who are seeking a further enfoldment beyond the known. The world’s most fertile energy frequency. Yet often postponed, or held in reserve. Captured by pasts and futures at war with each other. The shadow must be honored if the light is to dawn. All of this is known and sensed with overwhelming force. It will come out. It will come through.
