The power in feeling. On the 17th January 2022, we have the first Full Moon of the year at 27 degrees Cancer and it will be highly emotional.

Cancer is an emotional (water) sign ruled by the Moon, so we really feel it when the Moon is in Cancer.

Pluto, the great transformer, opposes the Full Moon in Cancer, bringing intensity and depth to the equation.

This Full Moon will be heavily emotional.


This lunation is an invitation to connect to your feelings and listen to what they have to say.

What are your desires, and what are your fears?

What have you denied to yourself because of fear?

Where have you stopped yourself because of fear?

Sometimes in the depth of your fears, you find the key to your heart’s true desires.

You only need the courage to dig deep.


Whether you like it or not, with Pluto involved, old fears are likely to come up. Just listen.
You don’t need to act; just let the message come in.

With Mercury and Venus still retrograde, the time is for gaining clarity rather than taking action.

Full Moons are a time of culmination when answers come up, and you find new insights. This Full Moon in Cancer is trine Neptune, which can bring inspiration and new ideas.

What intentions did you set at the New Moon in Capricorn that is coming up for revision?

Is it time to change course or stay on the path?

The power of self-care

However challenging this Full Moon might feel, stay grounded and take care of yourself.

Full Moon in Cancer is a reminder that taking care of yourself matters; in fact, it is the most powerful, loving act you can do for yourself. Honour your ebbs and flows, nourish your body, mind and soul, and allow yourself to rest.

Remember, it is still the winter season and time to retreat and rest.

If anything, clear out the baggage from 2021. What is no longer empowering and supportive?

You have two weeks until the next New Moon to do so.

Until then, take care.
