Full Moon Cancer Xmas Day 2015

The Full Moon in Cancer is exact at 10:12 pm, Xmas Day, AEDT. Cancer is ruled by the Moon and is the sign of home and family. Here is a planetary poem evoking these lunar themes excerpted from my book The Planets Speak: Wisdom of the Gods:



Tune in, relax, make yourself comfortable

Imagine moonlight on the sea, shimmering softly

 Tune into your feelings ..

 What are you feeling right now ?

Are you feeling nourished, taken care of ?

Do you feel secure, at home in yourself ?

Do you feel you belong in your family and place of residence ?

Does this very planet Earth feel like home to you ?

Or are you filled with longing to return to your Source ?

“Your birth is but a sleep and a forgetting

The soul that rises with you, your life’s star

Hath had elsewhere it’s setting, and cometh from afar

Not in entire forgetfulness

But trailing clouds of glory do you come

From God who is your home”

                             – William Wordsworth [paraphrased]

 I take you in

Back to the past, to your origin

Back to your childhood, and back further still

To life in the womb, your first living room

Do you remember ?

Do you remember your ancestors ?

Your grandparents, and their parents too ?

Who were they and where did they live ?

What were their dreams and were they fulfilled ?

Or did they pass them on to you ?

Are you living their dreams or your own ?

And can you really separate the two ?

 Whether your memories are happy or sad

They connect you to your roots

They are food for your soul

Honour and cherish them

 Your family tree is your tree of life

The deeper the roots, the stronger the tree

And the stronger your sense of connection to life itself

 Lest you forget
