Our sensitive, nurturing side is highlighted today as the moon takes its first steps under the sign of Cancer. The energy here can become quite emotional, and the temptation to stay in bed and close out the world could be real right now.
Unbalanced aspects between the moon and Jupiter and Saturn could also make us feel overwhelmed, especially when it comes to responsibilities. It might not be easy to put on a brave face this morning, so be gentle with yourself and others as everyone attempts to navigate this messy cosmic climate.
As we continue into the night, the moon becomes full as it forms an opposition to the sun. Cancer full moons are known to create emotional fluctuation, and you may be feeling more emotional than usual. Your focus is likely on the home right now, so spend the evening inside to nurture yourself and the ones you love. Activities such as baking, gardening, or even bathing go perfectly with the current vibe.
It’s also a good time to release any fears or hurt feelings you may be holding onto. Give yourself permission to unplug and save important conversations for another day because it’s important to put yourself and your personal well-being first. Take a moment to let go of anything you feel is holding you back so you can head into the new year feeling refreshed.
Tonight’s Cancer Full Moon (7:28 PM PST 8° Cancer Capricorn), in a sextile to Uranus and square to Chiron, helps to stabilize our pursuit of new and exciting information. There is an element of status consciousness introduced today which may help us to attract powerful new allies or distract us with questionable attempts to make a good impression. Nonetheless, creative imagination blends with quiet independence bringing our awareness of the shifts initiated under the Winter Solstice to an exciting new plateau. However, there are still difficulties in the area of relationships and integrating emotions and feelings into the overall equation. Without some personal sense of worth, we are very much in danger of trusting the wrong people or hiding important feelings that are an important part of the overall equation — whether or not we want them to be.
