The last full moon of 2020 is right at home in Cancer. Cancer basically provided the bookends of 2020; as our first and last full moons of the year being at home within the feminine sign, this basically represents the divine feminine taking rise. This was symbolic in the sense that this year we were forced to take better care of ourselves, set better boundaries for the sake of focusing on our needs which in turn allowed us to see the World with a more compassionate and sensitive lens.
Over the course of this past year, we were forced to face our shadow as Capricorn had dominated the cosmos, and with that it had placed a microscope on unnecessary programming, inner toxicity, defense mechanisms which serve as blockages, and all of the things in between which held us back from aligning to our best selves. This past year has been most definitely very tough on us all. While we may have experienced different waves throughout it, we can all agree that it was not only transforming, but it was also very grueling in the fact that many of us were forced to face our shadows and to mend old wounds and karmic cycles, not just from this timeline, but from timelines past; our prior lifetimes, as well as the ancestral wounds and cycles in which we inherited so to finally overcome for the sake of the collective’s ascension process.
Cancer received the symbol of the crab because when the world gets too tough, Cancer is more than likely to retreat to its shell and hideaway. And so, we may be more prone for disappearing acts when we need to retreat in order to tend to our wounds.
Now that the cosmos are focusing more on Aquarius, we no longer have to get into the nitty gritty, but rather take what we had learned while under the microscope of Capricorn and use it to better humanity as a whole. 2020 was a year of cutting away whatever was weighing us down from the upgrades we needed in order to usher in the new age of Aquarius, so to place a new focus on humanitarianism, so we can all do our part in uplifting humanity together. Besides, all of the work that we had done for ourselves, wasn't just for ourselves, but for humanity as a whole. As we heal ourselves, we heal the collective as we are just a ripple within a vast ocean.
When the moon is in cancer it is at her most nurturing phase, this is where the moon's focus is turned to the home, family, children, and mothers and expressed in the many ways in how we can nurture these aspects, tend to the care and needs of these in a more sympathetic approach and compassionate touch.
During this time, sensitivities may be running at an all-time high, we are more than likely to express our emotions in a more sympathetic and compassionate way… or perhaps more defensive and triggered. For many, this may be a time where wounds are triggered as that last little bit of clutter in the closet is waiting to be cleared, and so we are gifted a mirror in which others will reflect on these triggers to aid our shadow work process.
The Full Moon calls for us to rest, to release, and to put an important focus on our self-care and our spiritual and emotional needs. This is a time to rejuvenate our body, mind, in our souls, so that we can enter in two 2021 with a more refreshed mindset, a stronger body, any more powerful soul. as we do this, we strengthen our connection to the divine, we ready our vessels so to channel the message is, blessings, and miracles in which source wants to bestow upon humanity.

The best model for a Virgo is more than likely: if you want something done right then you need to do it yourself. That may be the case during this time, as there is something that you really want, a goal that you are so close to achieving or a resource that is needed in order to help apply those final touches to a project. You may be presented with an opportunity to receive this, but the only way you can fully reach for it is by extending your own arms. This is a time of action and the only thing holding you back is yourself.
While the moon does heavily oppose you, Libra, it does seem that it is sparking your creative flare as well as empowering your intuitive abilities. You may feel more in tune with others as well as having more intense dreams. It is important to take note of whatever the subconscious mind is trying to tell you because these messages or symbols in which you were receiving are very important.

New opportunities await, Scorpio, and you were offered something in which you feel so very connected to.

By all means, do not disregard this opportunity, as it is something that is going to Herald a new adventure, a new quest, or a new understanding about something very important in your life.

You always mean well, even if you cannot perform the tasks that you gave your word you can. And so, this may be a time in which you need to reach out and call in some reinforcements to help you.
You are given a second chance at something called my Capricorn, something that means a lot to you. Perhaps this is something in which you had tried to do in the past but unfortunately the timing wasn't right or perhaps you might have made some wrong moves and ended up failing. Failure to you is the worst, and so you might be a bit reluctant to see this through once more because you do not want to repeat any mistakes.

Most of all, it is very important to know that perspective is everything, and so with the right mental attitude you can achieve anything.
Something is crumbling, Aquarius, and perhaps you feel there is nothing you can do to prevent it. Or even, you don't want to do anything to prevent it.

What you have been working so very hard for is finally secured, you were in a more stable position, both materially as well as mentally. There has been so much insecurity in the past, so much turbulence, and so the full moon brings you a sign of reassurance that things are going to be OK, and they are going to continue to get much better.
