Full Moon in Cancer – 2020 Door-Closer
By Sibylle Stehli,
December 29, 2020
What a year it has been!
In January, we had a full moon in Cancer and it served as a door-opener for 2020. We now close with a full moon in Cancer on Wednesday 30 December at 05h28 in Cape Town South Africa.
It is a door-closer on a completely unpredictable, unprecedented and very different year.
Whenever a door closes, we have a simultaneous opening into a new chapter, a new adventure and the unknown. Many of us were thrown deep into the unknown this year and our lesson and spiritual growth was around embracing and stepping into mastery with this essence. Even though there may still be a sense of uncertainty or a slight scary feeling (part of being human); it is mixed with a greater sense of newness, excitement and adventure.
Mindfulness Tip – Conscious Choice vs Default Setting
Remember to set your intention / choice / wish for some extra magic and sparkle.
This is important as you have free will in each moment. So choosing consciously what you would like this moon cycle to bring you will allow things to align, come into harmony and synchronize with what you choose..
The Numerology of this Moon
The peak time of this full moon is at 05h28 for South Africa.
05: The 5 embodies the balanced masculine and feminine energies as well as the essence of fun, adventure and freedom. It is also combined with the zero point which amplifies the creative power.
5 is the number associated with change – large or small. This year has taught us the meaning of the word change in ways not experienced before. It is interesting that we are moving into a 5 Universal Year (2+0+2+1 = 5). So closing the door on a year of radical changes and opening into a new year of change as the main theme, it is time to become comfortable with change at a deeper level.
28: Through the 2 and the 8 we embrace partnership and collaboration while being aligned in our power and abundance. When we add up the two numbers, we get 10 = new beginnings at zero point.
For me it is significant how the time of the peaking of this moon fully embodies the door-closer-opener essence.
What I have experienced since the last post
It has been a time of surprises, wishes fulfilled and brand-new adventures!
It feels as if the essence of 2021 has already started filtering into my life. The changes are all superb and things are working out better than expected.
I learned a truly amazing lesson in non-attachment and staying open to the unknown world filled with magic and miracles. I had set key intentions and my vision-board for 2020 on 01 January this year (the version of 2020 I experienced was not on my vision board!). The key was that I never gave up on my big picture throughout all the tumultuous upsets of 2020.
I incorporated 2 guided visualizations to keep me on track:
- Effortless Being from the Freedom Is book by Brandon Bays
- Morning Meditation by Dr Joe Dispenza.
My core essence of happiness and celebration of my new future stayed the same; even though the images in the visualizations changed at times. An unexpected birthday celebration was testament to this. There is further magic in the way the new place I am staying at and the people who are in my life now, occurred.
At the time the events were happening, I did not connect the dots. So much was being put into place in a short space of time through surprises which kept on flooding in. When I was in meditation a few days after the events occurred, I suddenly had tears of gratitude at how it had all transpired and popped into my life. It was only then that I connected the dots to my vision-board and the visualizations. I am now already living a large part of my dream…it just showed up in ways I could not have foreseen.
The huge take-away for me is to stay in trust and surrender
I have done the inner work and this allowed the flow in my outer world. Everything came together very quickly and I needed to embrace remaining flexible.
Another key for me was to keep on surrendering my mind to my heart and let my Soul lead. By doing this, things fell into place effortlessly and beautifully in surprising ways. There have been and still are many good tears of pure gratitude and joy. Complete awe at this newest demonstration of divine synchronicity continues to permeates my days.
I currently feel as if I am living in paradise – and then I realise I am! I have co-created this through inner work, mindful intentions, consciously focused thoughts and words and inspired actions. I am on the stepping-stones of my beautiful new life and change has become my friend and collaborator. Bring on 2021 - I am just getting started!
What you may be experiencing at this time
- Heightened emotions
- Little sleep or disturbed sleeping patterns
- Digestive issues, bloating and general lethargy
- Uncertainty, doubt and feeling lost and/or confused
- Feeling heaviness as if you are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders
- Lack of clarity on the next small step and especially on a bigger picture for your life
- Repeating patterns of behaviour bringing results you no longer wish to have in your life
How you can best help yourself at this time
- Give yourself permission to allow and feel your emotions
- Eat light foods and minimize alcohol, sugar and heavy or processed foods
- Stay offline and be out in nature often to stay grounded, centred and present
- Meditate and check in with Soul for what is best for you at this time – you are your own guru
- Be ok with not knowing and embrace the uncertainty; through doing this clarity will then be available to you
- Write down all the things you are still holding onto from 2020 – what did and especially what did not happen
- Burn the papers and allow the grief to flow so that it can all be released and cleansed from the body and Being. Then drop into gratitude for all you do have in your life
Hold onto your inner vision/big picture for your life no matter what is occurring in the world around you and allow yourself to be beautifully surprised at the outcome.
Wishing all a fun, prosperous, adventurous, magical and blessed 2021 😊
