As we welcome the New Year, we are giving a bit of a breather astrological with Mars, Mercury, and Uranus all retrograde since the end of 2022. Giving us a chance to stop and deal with any unfinished business carried over from the previous year, as well as contemplating and planning what we would like to create in the coming year.
This week you may start to feel a change in direction coming your way. Over the next week, Mars and Mercury begin to move directly from the 18th of the month and your may start to gain clarity about your life. You will have a better understanding of why you had to experience the events in the past few months. By the end of the month, any problems, setbacks, or issues caused by these retrogrades should resolve themselves.
FULL MOON IN CANCER 16°
JANUARY 7TH, 2023 10.08 AM AEDT
Today we welcome the first Full Moon of the year in the gentle sign of Cancer. This gentle and healing moon is nourishing to the soul. Under this Full Moon, you will gain intuitive insights that will help you to heal and cleanse any emotional residue, especially from past hurts and insecurities that hold you back from living a full life. You may like to create the space and time to tune in, such as taking a walk by the beach or taking a bath.
Full Moons are all about letting go. Using the intensity and glow of the moon, its heightened state to release, expresses, and energize all themes covered under the sign, it’s in for that month. Cancer is the sign ruling family ties and our home, our need to belong to a group, to feeling safe and supported by our close people; it is also about the place we call home; we all need a place to rest and restore at the end of the day. This can be a positive time to enjoy family gatherings or reunions with old friends. For some, it may be a time to let go of expectations from family members or from connections that are unhealthy or create co-dependency.
As the Sun in Capricorn opposes the Moon in Cancer, you may also look at creating a balance between the need to achieve out in the world and the time spent at home to ground and nourish as be with loved ones.
Cancer is the sentimental sign of the Zodiac that likes to look at the past. If you are clinging to the past or dwelling on old hurts, this new moon presents you with the opportunity to release and be free of old burdens. It is time to forgive and move on. It’s more about accepting the past and living in the present as you look to the future.
This can be the perfect opportunity to review past goals and let go of the ones that seem outdated and no longer reflect where you see yourself in the future. This New Moon encourages you to find your inner groove – let go of the hustle and the “shoulds” and take the time to find out what feels right for you. You will be glad you did!
Happy Full Moon!
