The Cancerian full Moon falls smack on Christmas Day, on December 25, this year. It's an interesting occurrence, and one that can have feelings, emotions and responses heightened, in some cases to the point of argument, but there can also be a strong sense of family unity.
The eclipse speaks of many things - as lunations always do - but the crux of it, I figure is the image of reaching deeply into oneself and others in order to get to the pure, refreshing waters of who we and others are. It's also about opening up the heart, healing our wounds and finding our place.
October's new Moon occurs on October 27 in Australia and October 26 in the United States. The Sabian Symbol is very interesting in the light of the fact that it falls just a few days before Halloween. The Symbol is Scorpio 4: A Youth Holding A Lighted Candle In A Devotional Ritual Gains A Sense Of The Great 'Other World'.
January's full Moon falls on January 26 in the United States and January 27 in Australia. The theme of this full Moon is very much about overthrowing the 'old guard' and taking on the new. It shows a need to get your own agenda going, not to bend to the needs or desires of others when they really don't have anything to contribute to your sense of self or accomplishment.
The full Moon each month marks a time of heightened energies and events. It often marks the culmination of the energies released at the new Moon. Emotions can be supercharged as the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the zodiac and illumination is increased.

May's Scorpio full Moon falls on May 10 in the US and May 11 in Australia. It's a pretty full-on full Moon energy-wise, and, we are likely to see all kinds of events, political, social and otherwise, from it.
