Full Moon in Cancer 2012

Cosmic Potential Full Moon in Cancer 2012 Astrology
The last full moon in 2012 falls in the moon's natural home of Cancer at 7 degrees 06 minutes.

On 28th December at 10:21 GMT, the full moon forms a T-Square with the Uranus-Pluto square.  In addition, the moon is part of a grand water trine with Saturn and Chiron.  Other aspects worthy of mention is the quincunx between Jupiter and the Sun-Pluto conjunction, where Jupiter also trine Mars in Aquarius.

With the Sun in Capricorn (conjunct Pluto) and Moon in Cancer (part of the grand water trine), the Universe is likely to highlight issues of co-dependency in our lives.  Where in your life are you putting someone else's needs before your own?  Are you giving your power away and are too afraid to stand on your own two feet?  With the involvement of the Uranus-Pluto square, and the fact that Saturn and Pluto are in mutual reception, this full moon is giving us another kick up the backside to show us that it is time wake up and face our fears - yes, it can be scary and uncomfortable, but in order to move forward and grow into what we're destined to become, it is a necessity to go through with this shedding process.  With the grand water trine, the Universe is giving us a nurturing structure for embracing our wounded feelings before we let them out of our systems.

Making changes and weeding out unhealthy relationships from our lives are not easy, but Mars in Aquarius trine Jupiter in Gemini  motivates us to focus on the bigger picture and to move bravely into 2013 and beyond.

Where does this full moon fall in your chart?  Do you have any planets at 7 degrees Capricorn or Cancer (with an orb of 1 degree).


  1. This falls in my 8th house Cancer. I have no transiting planets at this time, but natally Uranus at 5 degrees. Did I make the cut? Pluto is transiting my 2nd house Capricorn at 9 degrees.

  2. I normally allow a tight orb of 1 degree for new moon and full moon so yours is slightly wide. However, some astrologers believe that there are people out there who are sensitive enough to pick up on wider orbs. Also, I mainly focus on conjunctions, oppositions and squares only (though some astrologers wouldn't even consider squares to be potent enough). If your natal Uranus forms one of those aspects with this full moon, then there's still a chance that it'll mirror something in your life.
