The Violet Consuming Flame Visualization

Keep the attention still and concentrated, and keep feeling the Violet Consuming Flame passing through your body until the Joy and Happiness of Its Power begin to make you feel lighter and more at ease. Remain within this, and feel It is God’s Forgiving Mercy; and Its Great Loving Purity comes into you and just loves to consume every particle of substance which does not produce Perfection.

Realize that the Love in this Violet Consuming Flame loves to release all substance from you which is not qualified with Eternal Purity. Then you will love that Violet Flame more! As you love It, It will love you; and It will love away all the substance that appears as limitation.Therefore, the more you use It, the more It will bless you. The more It becomes real and the more you draw It forth for others, the more you automatically raise yourselves.

Full Moon in Cancer ~ December 28, 2012

28th December: Full Moon in Cancer at 9.21 pm AEDT at 7 degrees 06 Cancer..the divine mother opens her heart to us!

At this full moon we have the feminine moon in her fullness in Cancer,  facing off in opposition to the masculine energy of the Capricorn sun.  The Cancer Full Moon is larger than life as the Moon is the ruler of Cancer so the energy of the moon at this time seems enhanced and expanded.

All emotion:    The moon rules the emotions, the unconscious, memories...our inner lives.  When the moon comes to fullness, these often untapped, held in emotions and/or memories seem to explode out of us with blinding realisations and what can feel like irrational manifestations.  I am not suggesting negativity here, although as we all know, when 'the shadow' emerges from us, we can feel emotions we'd rather not feel, emotions buried in past times.  We can feel like 'lunatics' as though some kind of wild madness has gripped us.

The Full Moon offers a natural release from emotions which have held us hostage to some past reality, recreating past scenarios of pain, suffering, fear and limitation.  The movie 'Groundhog Day' where the main character gets 'stuck' in a time warp of one day, living it over and over again until he changes his attitudes and behaviours which give him the key to freedom.
Culmination and completion:    From the Full Moon to the New Moon in Capricorn 12th January!  

This is what happens at the full moon...something culminates, comes to a head, completes.  This 'completion' may come from the last New Moon which was in Sagittarius two weeks ago. Then again, it may relate to the broader energies of Cancer, something related to 'mother', the childhood, home (present and/or past), emotional security/insecurity, loving nurturance, 'belonging'/place of belonging. This is not a negative/positive experience, just a freeing up of energy that has been withheld, contained, bottled up etc.  With Pluto opposing the Full Moon, we can expect a BIG release of buried energies.  

Whatever 'completes', the full import of what it is will be playing out over the next weeks until the New Moon in Capricorn on 12th.

The Full Moon can provide the opportunity to gain incredible insight into knowledge that has eluded us:   what nurtures our 'authority', our strengths!

It opens us up to the world of emotions, something which is so often avoided in our mentally polarised world of rational, logical thinking and behaviour.  We are humans and our emotional world is a part of us, the part of us that takes us into artistic expression of our unique individuality, our unique perspective, our unique truth.  The emotions are a creative powerhouse which give passion and meaning to our existence. 

Cancer Crab protects itself from harm:    The moon in Cancer is home of the divine mother energy and offers us nurturance and the self-love that comes from our inner mothering energy if we are preparing to nurture, love and accept ourselves, 'warts and all'.  However, it can also bring up emotions around our own mother, our mothering and/or our inner child. This is a good time to take care of the inner child's insecurities, fears and doubts.  Cancer energy can bring up emotional insecurities around feeling safe and protected.

 Cancer rules 'home', whether childhood or now and/or patterns associated with home.  Nurture yourself and 'family' at this time.

Capricorn Sun opposing the Full Moon energy:  Balance the physical needs with the emotional needs 

Capricorn energy is concerned with physical security and calls us to lay down the foundations and structures in the material world which will support our physical well being.  This includes all aspects of the, work, shelter and physical body.  The Sun is highlighting this area of our lives. 

 The Cancerian opposing energy calls the Capricorn Sun to balance by helping us to consider emotional well being.  One without the other becomes an unbalanced life.  We can a roof over our head, but we need to feel good about where we live, to feel peaceful and content. 

Taking our authority: However, the underlying message of Capricorn is tapping into the feeling of respect for ourselves, the call to step up and take our authority in our particular area of expertise. This is very much the focus at this Full Moon as the Finger of God with Saturn/Pluto and Jupiter uplifting us to a higher vision.

Pluto adding weight to the Sun and opposing the Full Moon:  Death to the energies of 'the old order', the old paradigm! 

Pluto will be almost on the same degree as the Sun in Capricorn, facing off to the Full Moon in Cancer.  Pluto, Lord of the Underworld, rules death and transformation and digs deeply to purify energies which need purification. 

Pluto will call us into drawing out of the darkness those deeply buried issues around our physical security, bringing up issues around emotional security. Be prepared to go to the depths to find the gremlins and release them from their underground cavern.

Finger of God' is strongly activated at the Full Moon...uplift to the divine truth and wisdom of Jupiter in Gemini!

Saturn and Pluto are at the base of this formation in a positive interaction supporting our changes for restructuring and transformation.  Pluto's got support from the Capricorn Sun lending weight and authority to his transformational force.  We will purge and some parts of us will perish! 

Jupiter's calling us to lift our minds into the highest expression of ourselves we can be.  Elevation of thoughts to the expression of our truth and wisdom is calling us.  If you feel the urge to express your heartfelt truth, don't hold back. 

Grand Water Trine at the Full Moon:    We're being called to come home to ourselves emotionally!  Feel and release!

Full Moon in Cancer:    comfort and nurturing releases the emotional insecurities, feel safe with yourself

Neptune/Chiron together in Pisces:    Deep emotional healing of the collective unconscious wounds frees us up

Saturn in Scorpio:    Karmic release and transformation of old structures and energies

All the water signs are in play and supporting each other to help us feel the flow of life, the flow of our emotional selves, calling ourselves home to the depth of our emotions.  There's nothing we need to do except remain loving and kind to ourselves, family and others.  It's all flowing for us.

If you haven't seen 'The Secret of Roan Innish', this is a good time to do so.  It's all about the mythology of the seal and coming 'home' to your soul. It's time to 'come home' to yourself, your soul, your place in the world.

The book 'Women who Run with the Wolves' tells the same story in the chapter 'Sealskin, Soulskin' about coming home to ourselves, to our soul. 

It's for us all...women and men.

There is one story above all others in the gorgeous, multi-layered book Women Who Run With the Wolves which sings to my heart. Sealskin, Soulskin is the story of a selkie who lives on land in her human form for almost 8 years due to the theft of her sealskin. Her skin is ultimately restored to her, and she returns to her seal form and takes once again to the waves.

The story itself is incredibly beautiful and it haunts me in ways like no other. However, it's not just the story which I return to; it's also Dr Estes' interpretation.

She reminds us that this is a story of what happens when we become separated from our soulskin, our true home. She empathises with us over the depletion of our resources, our difficulty in stating our own need to return to self. She calls us to turn homewards.

Physical healing and emotional healing at this Full Moon:  

Digestion:    Be aware of the digestive system at this time as it holds so much emotional energy.  With Pluto opposite the Full Moon, a purge is quite likely. Cancer energy is often impacted in the digestive system.

Of course Saturn in Scorpio, long term, means bones, teeth, knees and joints, spleen are areas ruled by Saturn and now have the potential 'snake healing' energy of Scorpio.  Pluto(ruler of Scorpio) in Capricorn (ruled by Saturn) reaffirms the focus on the body and its purification. 

At this time we have so many planets and astrological signs being tied in with the Full Moon energy and the Finger of God, that any 'portal' of release from the body/bodies depends on your own personal astrological energy.  This is always the case, but it seems particularly relevant at this time. 

Insecure and hidden gremlins will be released!:    This is one thing we can count on with the Cancer/Capricorn opposition at the Full Moon.  Anything hiding 'under a rock' with Pluto will be uncovered and released by the light of the Capricorn Sun and the Cancerian Full Moon.

Sabian Symbols for the Full Moon in Cancer:    from Linda Hill at the following website:

Linda has a more detailed study of the Sabian Symbols at this Full  Moon covering Sabian Symbols all the planets at this time.  Below is just the first few lines.

The Moon:   Cancer 8: A Group Of Rabbits Dressed In Clothes.

A Group of Rabbits Dressed in Clothes can picture people who may be trying to be more, or act like they are more, or different, than they really are. The fact that they are 'On Dignified Parade' means that they are working to put on a good show and to stand up for themselves. Our outer garments and demeanor act to both show and disguise who we truly are and what we are really feel about ourselves. It's difficult to completely disguise the attempt, but the effort of trying to advance themselves may be appreciated and rewarded with people taking them more seriously. The 'Rabbits' are still 'Rabbits' after all.

The Sun:    Capricorn 7: Birds In The House Singing Happily.

This degree implies the ability, or the need, to spread joy, happiness and laughter to those around you. It also shows that music can lighten people's spirits. Further, thinking positive thoughts and being loving and accepting of others are the hallmarks of this degree. Listening to the songs of birds can be rather magical and can bring spiritual messages to you.
