Full Moon in Cancer ~ January 6, 2023

My January 2023 Forecast shared:

January 6 Full Moon in Cancer, 6:08 p.m. Eastern Standard US time. According to Dane Rudhyar, the Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is: (CANCER 17°): THE UNFOLDMENT OF MULTILEVEL POTENTIALITIES ISSUING FROM AN ORIGINAL GERM. KEYNOTE: The life urge to actualize one’s birth potential. What a beautiful and encouraging start to 2023! At the time of the Full Moon, the Capricorn Sun point trines Uranus in Taurus, which sextiles the Moon point. The presence of Uranus brings extra energy for breakthroughs and liberation.

The Moon rules the sign of Cancer, empowering this Full Moon with extra potent juju. We see an emphasis on intuition, emotions, ebb and flow, and issues around mothers, children, home, and country.

modified from original chart on astro-seek.com

The Sun point conjuncts Mercury in Capricorn. Information and messages will come through, especially about the past. With Mercury Retrograde, we might discover that some things are different than we originally thought. We can review details and reorganize our worldview. Pay attention to insights about rules, structures, organizations, and top down authorities. This is a great time to reassess loyalties and traditions, making sure these speak to the real you. If someone or something diminishes you, reconsider how you spend your time and energy.

The Full Moon conjuncts Echeclus. This object is both a centaur and a comet, which ties into his role in astrology. Zane Stein notes:

On Amable’s blog, Transneptunian Astrology, there is this interesting observation about Echeclus: “When Echeclus is activated, there are time connections between past, present and future. Usually something of the past has imposing influence in the present, and something of the present can have an imposing influence in the future, and vice versa, like in the movies “The Kid” (2000), “Family Man” (2000), “Pay it Forward” (2000), “Frecuency” (2000), “The Lake House” (2006, remake of “Il Mare” South Corean film of 2000), “Déjà Vu” (2006), “Tomb Raider: Legend” (PS2, 2006), “Star Trek” (1979) and “Tess” (1979).

“Learning to switch time perspectives allows us to shift our attention easily between the past, present and future, and consciously adapt our mindset to any given situation.”

Precognition and time loops get activated by Echeclus. If you find yourself “going around in circles,” consider the possibility of a spiral staircase. Are you processing the same thing but on a deeper or higher level? Time is non-linear. We can revisit and pre-visit events from widely divergent times and timelines. Remember the Sabian Symbol: THE UNFOLDMENT OF MULTILEVEL POTENTIALITIES ISSUING FROM AN ORIGINAL GERM. If you’ve felt stuck, this Full Moon’s for you. Whatever glimpse you’ve had of your most authentic, full potential Self, go for it!

Asteroid Pallas also conjuncts the Full Moon in Cancer. Pallas stands for Pallas Athene, and represents Athena’s wisdom, knowledge, and support of the arts. She also deals with pattern recognition, including astrology. This conjunction increases insight into overall patterns playing across our lives. Many of these patterns appear in our natal charts. It just depends how we play the hand we’re dealt. Will we embrace our soul’s full intention for this lifetime?

An owl often sits on Athena’s shoulder, so we get Full Moon, female and owl, all of which remind me of this grainy mirror photo from 2010:

This Full Moon exactly trines asteroid Psyche in Scorpio. Psyche represents the Soul, and in Scorpio, we’re talking the deepest parts of the Soul. Psyche was born mortal. Through a process of love, loss, divine intervention and even more love, Psyche became an immortal goddess, finally allowed to live with her husband Eros. She covers all levels and realms of consciousness, all the different ways we discover who we are and what makes us tick. This Full Moon urges us to reach our full potential as a soul.

The Full Moon in Cancer + Psyche in Scorpio form a Grand Trine in Water with asteroids Vesta and Atlantis in Pisces. Combined with the Sabian Symbol for this Moon, I find the trine with Vesta and Atlantis fascinating. Vesta represents devotion to that which we hold most dear. She tends the flame of our highest ideals, kind of like the Statue of Liberty with her torch. The sign of Cancer wants to protect and nurture family, home and country. This Full Moon in Cancer occurs within three degrees of the US natal Sun. Remember, January 6 marks an important date in US history. Whether you consider J6 an insurrection or a false flag, this Full Moon will shine light on those events.

It also occurs in larger context of the ongoing First US Pluto Return (most exact from 2022-2025). This transit will either destroy the US or see it rise like a phoenix born from the ashes of its own funeral pyre. Pluto destroys that which no longer serves, removing anything stagnant or stifling. Anything not included in the original seed or divine blueprint gets blasted away. In context of the Full Moon’s trine to Atlantis and Vesta, America was originally imagined as “The New Atlantis“–a reference to Sir Francis Bacon’s novel of that name. Analyzing this novel’s influence on the founding of the United States, Rosanne Lindsay explains:

Sir Francis Bacon was a Freemason who had a major influence on the founding of America. Along with the Pilgrims who came to America for religious freedom, secret societies, who followed Bacon’s work, came with another agenda – to use America’s military and financial power to establish democracies throughout the world, and to restore The Lost City of Atlantis.

In a pure democracy, laws are made directly by the voting majority leaving the rights of the minority largely unprotected. In a republic, laws are made by representatives chosen [by] the people and must comply with a constitution that specifically protects the rights of the minority from the will of the majority.

The issue of constitutional compliance is “up” right now and impacts what could prove a monumental lawsuit on the Supreme Court docket for January 6, 2023. Time will tell what happens, but what uncanny timing with the J6 anniversary, this court case, and the Full Moon! The next four weeks could get very interesting, especially once Mars, Mercury and Uranus station Direct in mid-late Janaury. Action, information and liberation will play key roles on the world stage. The Sabian Symbol for the US natal Sun includes a KEYNOTE: Fulfillment in transcending and changeless wisdom. By conjuncting the US natal Sun, the January 6 Full Moon in Cancer amplifies the presence of Pallas Athene, with her owl and wisdom. Athena is also the patron goddess of Athens, aka the “birthplace of democracy.”

Look to overall patterns and the potential to transcend current challenges through wisdom that endures. At the time of the Full Moon, the North Node destiny point sits at 11°11′ Taurus–another manifestation gateway. Again, the Sabian Symbol of this Full Moon bodes well. THE UNFOLDMENT OF MULTILEVEL POTENTIALITIES ISSUING FROM AN ORIGINAL GERM. KEYNOTE: The life urge to actualize one’s birth potential.

Synchronously, this Full Moon also occurs on the Christian feast of Epiphany–when the Magi recognized the divine nature of Jesus. Most people don’t realize that these Three Wise Men were astrologers watching the sky and following a star to find divine revelation in human form. An “epiphany” is also “a sudden insight or intuitive understanding” that often leads to breakthrough. Once again, the Sabian Symbol rings loud and clear.

Happy Full Moon in Cancer! May we each become our best and truest selves.

  2. As I read your post, this stood out to me: “At the time of the Full Moon, the North Node destiny point sits at 11°11′ Taurus–another manifestation gateway. Again, the Sabian Symbol of this Full Moon bodes well. THE UNFOLDMENT OF MULTILEVEL POTENTIALITIES ISSUING FROM AN ORIGINAL GERM. KEYNOTE: The life urge to actualize one’s birth potential…” And I glanced at the time on my computer and it was 11:11 am. I will take that as a sign that I was supposed to read this message. Thank you. 🙏🏻

    Interesting stuff!

    A recent chat with my Cancerean brother exposed a lot of parallel life story archs running roughly a decade apart. Down to each of us making a major course correction based on the same movie quote.

    I’ve also felt quite connected to my ‘past’ selves, so much so I felt it an ideal time to employ the distance Reiki symbol to send myself support during difficult times.

    Love these posts with the chart included, thank you!

    • Wow, very cool that the same movie quote inspired both you and your brother to make big course corrections. Glad you love the charts. Big thanks to Mike Clelland. He’s the one who pushed me to include them and also makes them possible by turning my hand jotted notes into something tidy and presentable!

    I may just be looking for spooky, but the 11:11 jumped at me because I have natal Jupiter (ruler of chart) at 11° Taurus and natal north node in Aquarius, so perhaps this is personally significant. I’ve tried to express that NN (literally married an Aqua first time, for NN reasons) in life, but usually was thwarted. Will be watching…

    She notes that Mars is currently conjunct the US natal Uranus. Big time changes!

    • She notes that she messed up in the beginning of the video, calling Venus “Jupiter conjunct Pluto.” Later on she discusses Jupiter in Aries, but in the beginning she means Venus.

    Thanks for the info. Like the horoscope too. The full moon is on my Uranus…my only water planet…and in the middle of my sun and moon! Much seems to be happening around me. I’m staying calm mostly…and observing. Hmm. No instant gratification or high risk taking seems advisable.

    • Yes, watch for sudden opportunities and psychic hits, but exercise caution in daily life. That’s what I notice when something crosses my Uranus. Oh, that, plus a certain restless energy to throw off anything that feels restrictive. If something crosses my Chiron, which exactly opposes my Uranus, I always either almost get hit by a car or spill something major in the kitchen. It’s like clockwork, to the point where whenever I spill something in dramatic fashion, I check my transits, and sure enough, something just crossed that Chiron point and opposed my Uranus.

        Sorry..Pisces is at the midpoint of my sun and moon which with Chiron is opposite my Uranus…and a neighbourhood altercation on the 22nd of December that I witnessed ended in someone being hit by a train nearby on the 4th ofJanuary! I was trying to avoid the gory bits! She could have had alcohol in her system after a party the night before in that same house. Thanks for sharing your info.
