January’s Full Moon will exact on 12th January at 09:34pm (AEST).
Remember that the week leading up to a Full Moon can illuminate the shadow side and magnify personal and/or relationship issues in need of healing and love.
With this Full Moon forming a kite with Chiron, Mars and the Black Moon (also in water signs), increased sensitivity and receptivity is likely along with heightened intuition.
Honour your feminine side (males and females), withdraw for a while if needs be and be alert for any triggers related to your emotional depth, sexuality or your vulnerability.
Home and Family
Cancer is the sign connected to home and family (physical or soul family), so this a beautiful Moon to give gratitude to your home for its shelter, warmth and protection and to your family for the love and nurture that you share.
Perhaps by purchasing something beautiful for your abode that enhances its ambiance or elevates its vibration and in turn makes you, and those who share it ,feel nurtured, loved and special.
Having a safe haven to retreat to could be just the ticket right now; especially if you’re feeling quiet or overwhelmed, either by your own intimate World or by your perspective on the wider World.
Remember that inner peace becomes outer peace and try to stay in your heart as much as is possible in the lead up to this Full Moon.
Cancer energy loves to care for others and with all the intuition available to you under this Moon’s energy you may know just what others need.
Be supportive and call upon those who support you, if needed.
Of course, Full Moons can also highlight problems around relating and this one appears to be quite action packed with a T Square between The Moon, Jupiter, Uranus and The Sun/Pluto Conjunction.
That’s power-full energy!!
Drama and Power Struggles could be an issue right now and you may find yourself, events or others around you reactive, volatile or prone to eruptions right now.
Deep feelings could surface and require purging and Mars square to Saturn could bring up some angst around frustration or an inability to act on instinct.
If things have gotten to the point where something has to give, then that may just happen around this Full Moon.
Be aware of a tendency to judge others or yourself now and remember we’re all doing the best we can with what we’ve been given.
Be Love, Be Understanding, Be Tolerance as much as is possible and don’t beat yourself up with self-deprecation when you’re not in that place.
Feel, Honour and Release – Step Away From The Sugar
Nurture your body with healthful foods and steer away from a sugar overload, which could be used as a way to placate uncomfortable feelings.
Instead, try feeling into your emotions, go for a walk with them, sit by a waterfall and let them flow over you or write them out and express them.
Feeling is often healing.
Potential for Sudden Change
There could also be surprising opportunities, sudden epiphanies or unexpected changes now that require action.
Use that Saturn/Mars energy to pause, reflect and assert rather than react and with Mercury at the final degree of Sagittarius, let your inner wisdom be your guide.
Powerful change and transformation could certainly be on the cards for some.
What Area of your Life is this Full Moon Highlighting?
Remember to check your chart and to look for where 22 degrees and 27 seconds of Cancer and 22 degrees and 27 seconds of Capricorn fall.
What houses are these and which area of life do they represent?
Do you have any planets sitting around 22 degrees within your chart? What do they represent in your life?
