20° Cancer Full Moon @ 12:22pm MST on 1/10/20
This weeks full moon & eclipse is all about finding balance with ourselves & with each other. With the Sun, Mercury & Pluto all opposite this Cancerian moon, we may begin to find ourselves feeling swallowed up & unable to communicate our needs, desires & dreams. Our partners might wonder what’s wrong or be fighting their own battle as the culmination of karmas come to consciousness. We must be patient with ourselves & our lovey as we are moving independently & together through very emotionally charged times! The upside is we have so much room to integrate into a more solid & stronger unit if we stay open to this emotional process & keep lines of communication clear with our beloved.
With a few semi-squares between Mars, Mercury & the Sun, communication has the propensity to be heated or have a sense of palpable tension. This energy can also help us bring what’s difficult to the surface so we can more freely express ourselves & come to resolutions with each other. This may seem like a challenging moon for relationships & though it can be, it can also break through so many layers of uncommunicated subconscious emotions, needs, & wants that will only bring you & yours truly so much closer together!
Leo – fun, playful & totally center stage in love with you! Whether your entire social circle knows it, or it’s just between the two of you, Leo lovers know how to treat their partners with King/Queen adoration & affection. So many imagine Leos as extroverted, loud & in your face, but I have to be here to debunk that stereotype… If you’re with a Leo who’s the total opposite side of that coin, then you already know what I am talking about. This is especially true if your partner’s Venus is in Leo along with their Sun, Moon or Rising.
Leo tends to be thought of as the King or Queen, self-involved type that simultaneously is loud & robust with all their personal news & drama. This definitely could be the Leo type you’re with, but there is so much more to Leo energy than this. Many Leos are quite shy, prefer their alone time to groom, pamper & rest and have a very finite amount of energy for social engagements. You might think you partnered up with the life of the party only to find they’d rather have an intimate night in with you or a candlelit dinner somewhere quiet (and fancy).
Leo’s will want to spoil you & be spoiled too. You can have all their attention as long as you’re giving them the recognition they need as well. Always let them know they’re doing amazing, looking good, & remind them how talented they are. This will go a long way & they need their partner’s approval more than anyone else’s. Words of affirmation are your best friend when pairing up with a Leo King or Queen.
Leo lovers can be super generous & want to give you everything, but I would ask Leo to be aware of when they might be engaging in some slight manipulation. Stay authentic & if you tell your partner you love them, be sure it’s because you mean it & not just because you want to hear it back. Avoid giving a compliment just to receive one – Leo can get caught fishing for those words of affirmations & may come off as inauthentic to their partner, which couldn’t be further from the truth! They just need to be seen, so do your best to let them know that you are their #1 fan.
Infatuated, authentic & totally passionate lovers, Leo just wants you to know you’re their #1 & will love you like family while wanting to create a family with you!
20° Gemini Full Moon @ 10:11pm MST on 12/11/19
Happy Full Moon in Gemini! This is a time that has so much room for play & ease in relationship just as much as it has room for tension & growth. We’ve got polar opposite signs in exact opposition to each other in the sky, with the Sun in Sagittarius & the Moon in Gemini. This pull may make you feel that you & your partner are on totally different pages or it may bring you even closer together depending on your energetic relationship to these signs. Hint: if either of you has strong Gemini or Sagittarius in your chart (especially moon sign), you’re going to be feeling this moon more than most!
Emotionally, you may be feeling there’s something coming up for you but you feel blocked in accessing it or communicating it. This is normal at this time, so do be patient with yourself & your lovey when waves of emotions come up as you struggle to identify their source. Gemini can often make us think more logically, though full moons tend to pull up emotions. You may feel nothing during this time & only later when the moon has entered Cancer on Friday, the powerful energies of this full moon will reveal themselves to you. Stay present with each other & don’t force communication if you sense something is up with bae – it will reveal itself when it’s meant to & that just might be after this emotionally cool full moon!
Cancer – soft, sensitive & your ultimate nurturer in love! If you’ve fallen head over heels for a caring Cancer, you’re not alone. This sign brings all the warm, sweetheart vibes into a relationship & into the home. You’re in for some real TLC when you pair up with this highly receptive & domestic partner. This is especially true if your babe’s Venus is in Cancer along with their Sun, Moon or Rising.
Cancerian lovers are highly sensitive & are definitely among the psychics of the zodiac. They know what you want, need & desire & are often ready to give you whatever they can, even if it pushes their needs to the side. That being said, they also know when you’re being manipulative, lying or anything not harmonious, so if you think you can fool a Cancer – think again!
They definitely wanna fall for you, but they also might be timid at first. They can be hypersensitive making them extremely cautious in love & romance as to not get their hearts hurt or their minds twisted. Cancer rules the deep psyche, the subconscious mind and if they feel threatened at all, they quickly retract into their shells & become insecure & non-trusting. So do be patient & gentle as you approach these highly intune individuals because they really want nothing more than domestic bliss with you!
Though they’ll tend to give & give & give to you, what they need their partner to understand is they also need to receive emotional warmth & security to feel happy & content in their relationships. This seems like a no brainer, but when one partner (Cancer) assumes the role as the primary giver, this can automatically put the other in a position of the primary receiver. Cancers can let this dynamic become imbalanced due to their innate response to nurture others, so it’s their partner’s responsibility to help bring balance by showing them they deserve to be equally cared for too.
And Cancers, please don’t forget to communicate! Cancer can often get lost in their emotions & not let their partner in on their wants, needs or desires, leading the relationship into the dark & into blocked lines of communication & intimacy. Encourage your Cancerian partner to express their feelings & let them know they’re in a loving & safe space to share.
Seriously loyal, caring & sympathetic, Cancerians will bring a level of love, warmth & security into your life you’ve never experienced before!
20° Taurus Full Moon @ 6:34am on 11/12/19
As Scorpio’s opposite sign, Taurus is bringing in a whole new need of emotional stability this full moon. With the sun in Scorpio & the moon in Taurus, we are looking at intense emotional desires that require a ton of nurturing & grounding. This is no time for being flighty & escaping as much as you might feel you want to. There is nowhere left to run honey, it’s time for all of us to fess up & face not only ourselves, but our partners too.
With the Sun conjunct Mercury both in Scorpio, there is no better time to shine light on the shadow & speak your whole hearted truth. Whatever you’ve been keeping in that you should be sharing with your partner, now is the time to let it out. This is a time to merge together, to be more stable together & to feel more united & powerful together! Once we speak our truths, we feel so much more connected & emotionally open towards our partners.
Don’t let the stuffiness suffocate your relationship, air it out! With low elemental air quality in the zodiac these days, it can feel a little constricting under all those heavy emotions, watery tears & fiery passions. To find balance, we need to be sure we breathe our own expansion into our lives & relationships to truly benefit from this incredibly potent full moon that is begging us all to let it out, let it go & connect, connect, CONNECT!
