Today's FULL MOON in Cancer happened at 3:09PM PST on January 6th, 2023. This is our first Full Moon of the year, and the Cancer energy invites us to tend our homes, communicate easily in loving relationships, and give into the simple pleasure of just BEing. Cancer is symbolized by the crab. Like the crab who walks sideways into the world and who can be very laid back unless tested, this lunation eschews direct conflict for taking things easy--unless baited.
Personally as an energy healer, I feel this is a beautiful way to begin this year. With multiple planetary retrogrades happening now, including Mercury, Venus, and Mars, we are collectively being asked by the celestial bodies to REVIEW our lives, RECONNECT with our true heart's goals, and RESET the way we've been moving in the world. Things you are starting now can still be powerful if they come from a deeply grounded place, but true momentum will pick up at the Chinese New Year on January 22nd.
If you've been processing, clearing, or healing, then really sink into this moon's energies this weekend to support the healing of your feeling-body.
RITUAL IDEAS FOR FULL MOON IN CANCER
(1) Just REST already. Take a nice long nap at a totally inappropriate time.
(2) Gather your watercolors and psychedelic music--and go.
(3) Put on some soft tunes and turn your house cleaning into the perfect moving meditation. As you create beauty around you, let your inner world clear and settle.
(4) Pull oracle cards and then lay with a few crystals as you dream and journey.
RETURN OF THE EX
Remember that retrogrades tend to bring the return of people who have previously cleared from your life. This isn't always a bad thing. Sometimes we have unfinished business with people, and reconnecting allows us some healing, or a better perspective. Remember, if things were really finished, you wouldn't be running into them, or answering that phone at all. If you are the one reaching out, just double-check your reasoning before you pick up that phone.
"What do you really want from your relationships? What important boundaries can be put into place to help you thrive in 2023?"
The big question to ask yourself is, "What do you really want from your relationships? What important inner boundaries can be put into place to help you thrive in 2023?"
If a retrograde is bringing people you don't want to interact with, then maybe you haven't been fully honest with yourself, or with them. I remember a retrograde long back when every single agitating person I knew seemed to come out of the woodwork, and every funky situation I never resolved came up for review. I wanted to be angry, but instead I was thankful that the retrograde showed me where my energy had upgraded. I was able to make peace and draw fresh boundary lines so that I was no longer agitated. In going through that retrograde, I reclaimed a lot of my personal power.
What do you need to illuminate for yourself about how you've been previously living, as this year kicks off?
This Full Moon Cancer energy will help you deal with ALL of these relationships in a much healthier way. Just take it easy, friend, and enjoy the journey.
And don't forget to DANCE beneath the full moon!
