January 10: Full moon lunar eclipse in Cancer
Soul cleansing and evolution
Mercury and the sun are conjunct at 7:19 a.m.
Mercury is purified in the heart of the sun today, an aspect known as “Cazimi”, cleansing and clarifying our thoughts and intentions. It’s a time of resetting and recalibrating, trimming the excesses and coming back to our center. It’s from this balanced center that we move forward into the new year, surer of how to think, communicate, and work through any upcoming challenges. In Capricorn, this “Cazimi” emphasizes the earthly themes of rebuilding and strengthening the foundations of our lives.
A full moon and lunar eclipse in Cancer at 11:21 a.m.
The moon becomes full at 20 degrees Cancer, when vulnerability and sensitivity are heightened. This moon also forms a lunar eclipse, as it passes through the shadow of the earth, signaling a time of purging stagnant energies from our mind and body. This lunation forms a confronting opposition with all of the planets in the Capricorn stellium, bringing these matters to a head in our emotional awareness. This is a potent, culminating moment in the moon’s cycle, highlighting a need to self-nurture and build up our bodily resources so that we can handle the emotional challenges of 2020. There could be powerful moments of grief and emotional release today, so we forgo any ritual work to instead rest, hydrate, and protect our vitality.
