Full Moon in Cancer- January 1, 2018

Full Moon in Cancer- January 1, 2018

The full moon on January 1st, 2018 is at 11 degrees Cancer. This will not be the only full moon of this month, as the next full moon in Leo arrives on January 31st!  It is symbolic to have New Year's Day with a full moon because our feelings and thoughts will be illuminated, seen by everyone around us. This is very much a good thing in my opinion, because it provides a chance to recognize and reflect on how we have been affected by the past year. This should be done first so that we can actually let go of what was, and come to our present moment. Cancer's energy encourages us to give and receive love as well as forgiveness for ourselves and others. Full Moon in Cancer- January 1, 2018

Though this could be an emotionally sensitive time, Saturn's recent transition into Capricorn will be there to keep us grounded. It serves as a reminder to stay practical and continue making real efforts towards our goals. Our long term efforts are sure to pay off with this Capricorn influence, so stay patient and know that sometimes slow and steady wins the race! Cancer full moon will also be in opposition to planet Venus. This adds to the emotional energy of Cancer moon by showing the differences between friends, family or relationships of any kind. Water sign Cancer rules the home, family, and emotional foundation. This provides a time and space to work on ourselves and getting in touch with our roots. 

Balance is needed with the Cancer and Capricorn influences on either side of us. Being stable within ourselves will be an anchor when in between our minds and our hearts, our friends and relationships, and our work-life and home. If you are planning on making a New Year's resolution, consider including a health based goal to your list!  Exercising to keep your bones strong and keep you mentally and physically grounded is very beneficial under earth sign Capricorn's influence. Overall, this Cancer full moon is a chance to gain more understanding into your own personal themes for 2018. What do you see for yourself in the coming year? What needs to be overcome, and how do you want the end result to be? Even though we are always evolving, it is helpful to have something to aspire to, while still being grateful for our chance to simply live. I wish the very best for all of us in 2018! 

Be well!
