This year 2015 is a 13 Moon year, the last being in 2012. The first full moon for this 13 Moon-Year-Cycle was on Jan 5 at 04:54 TDT in 14 degrees 31 minutes Cancer.
In esoteric astrology this year 2015 is under the influence of Mars, whose energy is described as action influenced by the desire principle. Mars governs courage, impulsive emotional behavior, ambition and expressions of forceful energy. When these Mars energies are in balance they can be channeled for positive growth and change. When unbalanced and aimed within these energies will lead to self-destruction; unbalanced and aimed outward these energies will lead to violent behavior.
The Full Moon in the Cardinal sign Cancer and the aspects it is making to other planets in other Cardinal signs at this time heralds in a new evolutionary cycle - we are breaking through new ground. The Full Moon will bring with it feelings of anxiety and deep feelings of vulnerability and this will be due to the need to break free from the known. This shift will bring with it very deep psychological transmutation and the opportunity to release deep karmic ties to, and associations with, who you are — ties which no longer serve the best interests of your heart right now. This shifting and transmuting energy sets the tone for the year 2015.
The Sabian symbol associated with 14 degrees Cancer is – ‘A very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast.’ This symbol is associated with – Fearlessness, and self-perpetuating strength arising from knowledge, and courage in the facing of spiritual problems.
The message for this year, brought in by this first full moon is as follows – our experiences gained through personal judgments, persecutions, the harshness of the outer world has taught us to feel afraid and to close off, shut down and fall into the darkness of forgetfulness. We have become uncertain about our beliefs and ideas regarding the actual nature of our personal inner reality and our purpose in life, we have fallen into doubt and fear. This Full Moon sends us a message of encouragement and inner renewal, to allow our own ideas, beliefs and dreams to be infused with powerful regenerative energy, based in courage, power and the fearlessness to manifest them. The next step is learning to remain open to the world and to feel secure and unshaken in those moments of vulnerability – for that vulnerability is the doorway to your inner spirit, the source of your inner divine power.
Blessings to you all in 2015
