At 3:33am PST, the moon became full in Cancer. The full moon symbolizes something come to fruition—a thing or experience in its fullness. Cancer, the crab, is a sign that has much to do with emotions and nurturing. Cancer can also be a moody and closed-off sign when it feels threatened. In other words, this moon could swing you hard either way. You may feel a fullness in your heart and your eyes may overflow with sweet, happy tears, or you may be a moody beast—and not the fun kind that has howling parties.
If you feel your cup runneth over, luxuriate in it. Soak up all the peace and pleasure you can. In my favorite poem “Lucky Life,” Gerald Stern wrote, “Lucky life isn’t one long string of horrors and there are moments of peace and pleasure as I lie in between the blows.”
If you’ve gone beastly, try not to bite. Instead, take some time to reflect on what might be threatening you and making you feel you have to shut down and lash out. You will find relief in the knowing and so will those closest to you.
