Maximizing The Indigo Moon

Filed in ASTROLOGY

Shirley Bellwood Misty comic artist

I’m calling this Lunar Eclipse in Cancer an Indigo Moon. Being a Full Moon and an Eclipse with this much going on around it warrants a new category of rarity. And I don’t rate Blue Moons because they’re only referring to a calendar. Moons are the real calendar.

Anyway, there are many manifestations of the current astro-fuqery: enough of the political, let’s do the personal.

Eclipses like this are most potent in the lead-up and they ping off previous eclipses at similar points. They’re eerily referential. This one is even more so as it’s part of the Saturn-Pluto mind-warp in play since April. It’s an opportunity to emotionally integrate all the evolution since then.

And in fact, with the additional factor of Uranus turning Direct, you can pull off some genius alchemy of the soul with this astro. Imagine one poignant, sharp ray of indigo moonlight that pierces through the shadows. Or a eureka flash from the psyche – not your churning mind – that lifts the heaviness of half the galaxy in earth signs.

This Lunar Eclipse In Cancer Is Magic Beyond The Norm

My experience and that of many I know is that Saturn so close to Pluto has empowered the Inner Critic. It’s like the character went from vaguely carping to full-bore rant mode. A Lunar Eclipse in Cancer is the ultimate time for calling out this crap. You need wisdom and to learn from life, not an auto-guilt judgment setting that you can’t turn off.

The next three days (which is when this Indigo Moon is most intense) are fantastic for emotional release and insights that float up unbidden. That’s as opposed to you hounding yourself for answers by going over and over things. Or weirdly seeking them in a scrolling trance.

If you’re clear on something intellectually but your psyche is still foggy or, worse, haunted; this is your Full Moon!  Or maybe part of you is in tomorrow or the present but a dimension of you still lives in yesterday. The dissonance creates muscular-skeletal incongruence and you’re eating food that the knows-everything nine-year-old version of yourself really likes.

A Dimension Of You Still Lives In Yesterday

We know this Moon is part of the Saturn-Pluto config but it is also conjunct asteroid Arachne, square Eris-Persephone and opposite Ceres. These are profound themes that span multiple timelines and layers of consciousness. Your coming of age and what you left behind then – could you psychically journey back to get it? Delayed realizations about your most potent Pluto transits to date. Archetypes galore; Witch, Maiden, Mother, Sage, Warrior, Father. The weird social matrix of your life and how much of it was/is fate. How the way you eat ties into emotional nourishment from family or lack of it.

Those are just examples: it’s a theme-laden Lunar Eclipse in Cancer – you will have plenty of material to elaborate. And, while I am legit the worst at this, it’s a good few days to get off mindless news trawling if you can. There is staying up to date or knowing what’s up. Then there is diverting yourself from a profoundly beneficial emotional and spiritual breakthrough by confirming that something is sad or that someone is douchecore.

So, how are you doing with this?

Sorry quick question: as we are in the exact conjunction of Saturn / Pluto: when will it exactly be over? I think they make exact conjunction today and tomorrow and then again around 19-22 o January. Is that exact? When will we be out of the aspect officially?

Cherry MoonMM Member
Cherry Moon

Yes they are exact on 19-22 as well.
Do you use an ephemeris? Search for “swiss ephemeris 2020” or what ever year you want to check.
I would consider this conjunction effective most of this year with a possible “inflammation” around late September when they’re about 3º apart AND being squared by Mars from Aries.

The eclipse is happening @ 5º orb from my Sun in the 9th House. I’ve not had so much physical, mental or psychic energy since about i don’t know when … another lifetime, another me. I pinned down this energy change to exactly when Mars entered Sagittarius last Friday (my progressed Asc). It’s like i’m in love with being alive again after years of Pluto & Saturn transits to my Sun. I’ve also had an amazing run of serendipitous events all week & the synchronicity of information falling on my lap is just awesome. If this eclipse is tied into… Read more »

I have been getting heaps of omens and signs myself. Your winged horses remind me of my recent find. There’s been a pile of household junk in my street for weeks now and since before Christmas. It’s shown some variation and the wind has strewn it on occasion or the looters had left a mess so it became a bit of an irritant for me. After a couple of weeks of disdain I saw a bucket.

Thank you, C! You know, i had just checked up on Gary because let’s just say that i feel his forcefield lately, and then came to seek you out – and here you are!
So as i suspected, this gung-ho, devil-may-care energy surge has Gary at its epicentre forming a T-square with Jupe & Mars (exact ….. to a T no less), as Mars enters Saggo.
Result is I’m channelling my idealistic (some say idiot) teenager from the 70s … and Brad’s “Cliff Booth” is my Gary’s new icon.

I reckon yesterday when you were speaking to the police the words just rolled off your tongue without even thinking about it hey ? That’s Gary to a tee. LOL Sorry to break the Gary Mojo with a question but I have to ask. Why does the Gary asteroid transit go clockwise where as the other transits go anticlockwise. Is it because Gary is an asteroid and doesnt need to move? The world meets him… Read more »

Cherry MoonMM Member

There should be a Gary ephemeris. Gary moves anti-clockwise with the rest of the meteorite mob & planets, but he has been going Retro for a while which is prob why you think it’s going clockwise. He only just got going forwards again on 1st January.

Oh my Goddess this is pertinent! Imagine being in someone’s company when they pass away, and not bothering to contact the deceased’s next of kin, who is the only child of that person. Then, 2 months later, out of the blue and without warning, you call the deceased’s child and ask them if they want to sell their mother’s car to you, because yours was written off in an accident – you don’t bother with any social niceties, such as how they’ve been holding up since their mother’s passing.

Your 12 card tarot seems to know what’s going on. I keep getting cards relating tobeckiose: yesterday, 8 of cups (with its eclipse eerieyness) in my 12th house; today the Moon card (again an eclipsed sun on the card) in my 1st – and the Fool in the 12th to boot. I love it! Have been receiving a lot of corvid omens recently. Last Friday while working from home I heard strange goings on and went out to find two ravens on the chimney stack and a chewed bone presumably they’d tossed down on the ground.

The ultimate response I have for you is trust your intuition on this. One way you might arrive at that is to ask the bird. It seems there is something you want/need to do to complete this process. You could do a simple ceremony with the bird and country and call forth it’s spirit for answers or ask it’s relatives to provide a sign to guide you. You are free to do as you choose here and you only need be clear on what your will is and the will of the bird (if these things matter) and act in… Read more »

After you picked up the dead raven, how did the other ravens react? If they are milling around you, your house and seem to be upset/angry please put the bird back into nature for them to finish grieving their friend.

I’m not sure how to get around this. I took some time off work but it’s like I have to go deeper and be fundamentally different in my approach. I’m stumped.

You are prob overthinking this & being hard on yourself (that’s 10th H problem right there) – not sure you can force it, so do the opposite, let go of the thought, forget your packed 10th H & do your 4th instead – the moon’s in cancer now, go with that. Nourish & spoil yourself, engage your emotions, watch films, swim, plan a raid … ideas happen when you’re not actually thinking about the problem.

I am not feeling the passion you are Wish but with Mars (tr) Sol I am feeling energised and having to contain some of it’s vigour and the eclipse will be opposite my Moon. What I am feeling is a change in the wind. Fck that’s been a long time coming!!

Oh Centaurus that was to much wine talking last night. I was very drunk.

Since I have been in my new house minus the extreme stress iny previous abode I have been very sober and relaxed.

I just saw the Cancer moon as an excuse to let it rip. And I did with aplomb. Funnily the pmt and neck pain has gone.

I feel OK today but I don’t want to repeat this.

Glad that the new abode is stress free but the astro hasn’t really been supporting relaxation has it. I’m suffering various ailments and hassles linked to the conjunct on my moon and it hasn’t passed just quiet enough for me to feel the shift.

Thanks Centurious. Isn’t it funny how people perceive things differently?

I left that stressful town last October so the time since then has been a very peaceful retreat. I suppose I was banging my head against a brick wall for 2 years then I stopped.

I did allow myself seclusion so I wasn’t really exposed to many muggles: that helped alot. And nature was my refuge.

Oh I dont think its been all bad during that time but eclipse season is always interesting and has effects and echoes 6 months either side and might even reflect events from the period between 2009 – 2011. And the tension pre Saturn Jupiter conjunct was palpable. I haven’t had my usual social mojo for a while. Energy just hasn’t been there with the Cap cluster. Its had to go where its had to go. Beyond astro I think timing is magic. If it isn’t time the door won’t appear or open. I don’t mean that we all need to… Read more »

It’s SO TRUE that the issues and lessons learned in July 2019 are being illuminated with this eclipse. I wrote them down, and they are SO RELEVANT.

I’ve taken them and built on them, supercharged them and they seem to be a solution. However a long term, more strategic plan is in place.

And let’s just say that issues around THE MOON are super relevant. House stuff, family stuff…yep.

This sounds productive. Last July’s were a real cathartic cleanse, weren’t they? And still there is more..

Viral and pandemic for all the wrong reasons at times and is becoming a global addiction which is merely a sweeping observation of mine with no judgement however isn’t particularly great when used /over used in response to anxiety, trying to control external environments or an alternate way of looking within for answers as some possible reasons and so on. I’ve caught myself being summoned to its call for no specual or essential reason. A break sounds stellar. This will be opposite my Moon/Venus… Read more »

Random symbols.

Writing down a dream. Wrote a name wrong. Tara with an H. Looked like Tavah. Decided to Google. Didn’t find it but found Tabah (Malay) which means courageous.

Making lunch and making ready to roll and an echo of a song I feel I know but don’t recall and can’t catch. I try to hum it out. I get a line and Google. Andy Williams The Impossible Dream! Seriously probably haven’t heard that since I was a kid.

Sometimes Google is the bomb.

These both feel relevant to the astro and everything else right now.

Could not be the Torah could it? Mystical Hebrew word written in the middle of the Rider Smith Waite deck Wheel of Fortune tarot card, and rejigged the letters of Torah spell taroh! (tarot)

EDIT – I’ve just seen that it reads TARO on that card, so please accept my correction. However, all these words can be played with, rejigged, have a long esoterical tradition that you can feel into and explore?

That’s really interesting and I’m shaking my head that it didn’t come to mind but also not surprised. Some things are hidden in plain sight. I’ll ponder that regardless of the spelling on the card because of Torah which, yes is nearly Tarah and see how that fits with the dream theme. Loosely I think it actually does and I appreciate you bringing that to my attention! x

Are you familiar with Canadian philosopher Marshal McLuhan ? He coined the phrase ‘ The medium is the message’ From the late 50s he warned society of this coming digital age and predicted the World Wide Web. Here’s a quote from him in the late 50s This externalization of our senses creates what de Chardin calls the “noosphere” or a technological brain for the world. Instead of tending towards a vast Alexandrian library the world has become a computer, an electronic brain, exactly as in an infantile piece of science fiction. And as our senses have gone outside us, Big… Read more »

No I am not familiar with this guy’s work but I am completely familiar with that phrase. I have no trouble agreeing with his premises and predictions and the same goes for your view on how tech charity has replaced the hands on versions of it and how one has also become the perceived version of the other. It mostly comes down to a person’s underlying motivation eg to make a difference or to be seen to make a difference or perhaps even capitalise on making a difference. That said there are still some who may believe their only means… Read more »

I send money to charity (Rural firefighters and WIRE in AU, PRXPR and Hispanic Federation in PR, etc) , and then I turn. it. off! So I have struck a nice balance at the moment. 🙂 It’s like another created Astral Plane, but it feels like a violent schoolyard right now. I’m using this place as a resource/library/community and not as much an escape, looking things up with intent. I don’t cap on the kids for being online any more. They grew up here, after all.

Another astral plane…hmmm imtetesting thought. I hadn’t considered that view.

Yeah, it definitely needs balance.

Wish I had read this last night. Instead I chose waking at 3am and battling my inner critic. Yesterday was a churn and it’s still echoing in my brain. Timelines … so many all at once.

Thank you, mystic

I exactly needed to to read this, and the rest.
Cancerian vibe is so full and lush, accepting and comprehending. It’s in my first house. I think I need to water my own garden and fix the fence a little. And get the mailbox seen to.

“your churning mind”. Tick “…the Inner Critic…character went from vaguely carping to full-bore rant mode”. Tick. “an auto-guilt judgment setting that you can’t turn off”. Tick. “your psyche is still foggy or, worse, haunted”. Tick. “part of you is in tomorrow or the present but a dimension of you still lives in yesterday”. Tick “mindless news trawling”. Tick I’m either angry (and I mean RAGE-filled) or apathetic, either happily optimistic or totally existentially disillusioned. And seeing past patterns repeated… And trying to find the key to breaking the cycle. Bring on that “poignant, sharp ray of indigo moonlight that pierces… Read more »

”Trying to find the key to breaking the cycle. Bring on that “poignant, sharp ray of indigo moonlight that pierces through the shadows” because this is really wearing me down!”

And BOOM – 3:00 p.m. today . It happened. FREEEKIN’ AMAZING. So much work to be done, and the mojo to make it happen. Energised, an “incredible lightness of being”! Like clods of mud have fallen from my wings, and after months of smoke and clouds and haze I might see blue sky and a golden sun tomorrow. Boo yeah!

Cancer stellium here. 4th house. My physical is stuck in yesterday but I’m flying it into tomorrow tomorrow. I’ve been full on positive that it’s the right path then filled with fears that I’m cliff jumping again. But I know I can’t not. It’s like having that weird vertigo where standing twenty floors up just makes you want to leap. I know I’m going but have no idea what the landing will be like. I do know, I can’t stay here.

Yes! My inner critic has been shrieking all my anxieties, and it’s gotten way more intense this week. I have been non-stop trying to self-care myself into feeling better. I’ve put myself on a news diet until after the weekend. My birthday falls on the full moon/eclipse, and I am BRACING. This Saturn/Pluto stuff has really fuqed me up this past year, and I just hope it doesn’t upend my life again when all this goes exact.

Since the New Moon on December 25, I’ve experienced a series of intense realizations followed by catharsis. I had 2 weeks off work, and finally the space to be still after an extremely hectic 16 months (by transit, Uranus conjuncts my natal Mars and trines my Sun and Mercury). The time also affirms what I wrote in an earlier blog response: ‘I lot of things left my life, but once they were gone, I was able to see what in my psyche they were blocking from my view.’ I recently worked with an ethnobotanist who introduced me to some sacred… Read more »

Relating to this rapid-intense realisations them catharsis. For me it’s definitely coming through my 7th house and a taurus who has Uranus exact on his sun right now .

Wonderful writing and relatable. You have been “doing the work”! Yes in the gap after so much leaves there is space for discerning truth and feeling out how YOU want to live. I did a lot of shadow work last winter and the summer eclipses cleansed the wounds in salt water. Aka a process of integration. Yes it is exhausting and yet there is physical healing as well as emotional. Last winter I sustained a seemingly endless series of small infuriating accidental injuries. I couldn’t exercise as I wanted to – cue a recent rearing of inherited body and self… Read more »

I would not recommend these unless a person has done a lot of inner work, possesses base strength, and has very strong support available, but I used ayahuasca and rapeh (sacred snuff).

Yes! The running background rant is a steady drum beat of fear x 10. I’ve got Pluto juice on hand. I’ve been looking for a new subject to paint and got the ephemeris for my long dead mother/grandmother and a few other ghosts. Unbidden I’m painting their charts but really it’s their SOULS. And the colors, generational patterns and archetypes being revealed is like looking at the ancient wiring of a 100 year old building. Shocking in the best way, it’s bubbling up from my psychic swamp.

Whelp. I LOVE this! Do you feel their response? Any signs or signals? How are YOU feeling in response to doing this epic work?

Thanks for this MM. I definitely need to maximize this as an emotional release. It’s the middle of winter here in New England and I almost always run cold but not this year – I am overheating. My eyes are dry, I can’t drink enough water, I feel like I am burning up. Now since yesterday my throat hurts. Not like a sore throat, but a tightness, like someone is gripping it. As a Scorpio this conj is happening in my solar third. I’m excessively Plutonic as it is with my sun conj Pluto and squaring mars in Aquarius. My… Read more »

“engines revving up but the breaks are on” and “scrolling trance” OH MY WORD, this has been the strange obsessive stasis of my last ten days, between retreating into strange bouts of internet fuelled hypochondria, sleepless with the news, and reading and re-reading text messages to find ill-intent where there is none, I feel manic but stagnant. Strangely, I’ve also had odd moments of BLISS amid all this, a day that spawned all these beautiful reconnections to old friends, and new connections, one in particular, that feels abundant with the most exciting new romantic possibility. On top, work is escalating… Read more »
