Exact pretty much now. Luna's astral light is strong in Cancer, and this will be the second-biggest moon of the whole year, surpassed only by the Full Moon in Leo on January 31st.
I was just in my bedroom reading an article about the ongoing and upcoming rise of the Divine Feminine and Masculine in 2018, when I feel a surge of especially strong emotion well up in me. Tears are starting to come out of my eyes and run down my cheeks, as they sometimes do when powerful waves enter my consciousness and body.
Then I remember that the almost-full moon of last night is peaking tonight. The moon in Cancer invariably affects me strongly, every year, but this time it is even stronger. So I go outside to look at it. And there it is, a blindingly bright white light filtering through the branches of the trees in my backyard.
It is among the most intense moments of my life. Its light, bright both on the astral and physical planes, makes my body shake and quiver. Tears and snot are running down my face, and I have to sit down. Its beauty, power and intensity is overwhelming. These are the happiest moments in my life, when books and thinking and planning and judging take a back seat, and I become one with nature and the universe. My gratitude is boundless.
If you can, go outside now and meet her face to face, like I did. She wouldn't allow me to take a picture, but it wouldn't do her justice anyway.
