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?
