The moment of birth is magical for many reasons, one of which is that at that second, a snap shot of the universe is taken, and unless another baby is born in the exact same place at the exact minute (incredibly rare) that little slice of sky and destiny is yours and yours alone. Some parts of the chart, like rising, change every few minutes, so even twins can have different signs!I have always loved the uniqueness and power of astrology, despite what some critics think. I wouldn’t be surprised if my first action after baby’s birth, rather than post a picture to facebook or something, will be to plug his details into my astrology site!
This full moon comes only three days after the sun enters Cancer, aka Summer Solstice, the climax of the light part of the year. Summer solstice is the longest day, and the start of summer, but paradoxically, from this day on, the light gets shorter until winter solstice. Being both a super moon and in the solstice energy, we are getting a double dose of the dance between divine feminine, Cancer, creator, mother, lover, and divine masculine, Capricorn, destroyer, father, teacher.
While we are past the spring eclipse cycle, there are still powerful things moving all around us. Each month is a chance to heal something, birth something, change something. The universe gifts us these moments, like the mystical moment of birth, and these celestial celebrations like super moons, to show us not only how special we are but how we are also connected to everything and everyone. We may be on our separate journeys, but Saturn and the Moon pull us all, in whatever direction we need to go to fulfill that destiny dictated the moment we take our first breath. The cardinal signs, Capricorn, Cancer, Libra and Aries, are the cycles where initiation occurs, the seasons change and we have great possibility to step into our unique birthrights.
