Cancer Full Moon & Mercury Retrograde Offer Intensity, Transformation, & Innovation
On Monday, January 17th at 3:48 pm PST, the Moon in Cancer will oppose the Sun in Capricorn at 27°51’, respectively. Several things stand out about this year’s Cancer Full Moon. Most notably, the Sun is conjunct Pluto, and the two of them are opposite the Moon. This adds an obsessive, compelling, and even compulsive tone to the intensity of this deeply emotional Full Moon.
That which has been hidden is unveiled!
This is a wonderful time to journal, reminisce, do some introspective, dream or psychological work. Take care that you don’t get too carried away from your rational mind but know that this is a beautiful time to purge whatever is no longer serving you.
Cancer rules our emotions, and our home, so allow yourself to feel and beautify your home environment. Remember that space is abundance, and it attracts to you because nature abhors a vacuum! But don’t just fill it back up with more things, be discerning and allow yourself to enjoy the expansiveness of “empty” space… although space is anything but empty!

Tonight, as we are leading up to the Full Moon, is the perfect time to intentionally release whatever you are ready to. Remember that with the particularly painful and challenging years that we’ve endured, there is likely some forgiveness to embrace particularly around our familial relationships.
Make a list and then burn it safely
because it’s all about your intention.
Once you close the door to the past,
the door to your future will reveal itself!
