Full Moon in Cancer on 17 January 2022

The full moon rises in sidereal Cancer on 17 January 2022, during the Sagittarius lunar cycle. Like a crab coming out it’s shell, there will be a sense of returning from darkness. Ideas and guidance that began during the new moon will manifest fully.

Emotions may be high and we may sense our intuition more. Grounding with meditation, journaling, and Third Eye chakra remedies are ways to work with this energy. Balance the axis with Capricorn/ root chakra activities.

Sun, Venus retrograde, and Mars are in Sagittarius. The global collective may reflect on reasons why and how we travel; weighing on whether our actions and beliefs are aligned; and being more flexible about our activities.

Saturn in Capricorn aspects Cancer, guiding us to notice challenges ahead of time. It is key to be patient during this time until the moon transits from Cancer to Leo.

Look at this full moon in sidereal Cancer from your ascendant (physical world/ higher self) and moon sign (mind) to understand how it affects you on an individual level.
