Full Wolf Moon in Cancer – January 17, 2022

The Cancer Full Moon falls on January 17, 2022. What did you plant 2 weeks ago with the New Moon? Whatever it was (conscious or not-so intended) it now comes to a fruition point. If you don’t want to continue with the direction you’ve created for yourself now is the time to take responsibility and right your ship in an appropriate direction.

Cancer and the Moon rule over how we get our needs met and all of our family and in-born habits and patterns.

Healing Spiritual Family Wounds

Power and pressure build and the release valve is stillness and creating space for yourself to breathe. Cancer and the Moon rule over how we get our needs met and all of our family and in-born habits and patterns. The stakes are high to break-through some old patterns.

Sustainability and creative thinking are called for now even more than ever. It can be a challenge to keep a positive outlook, but nothing good comes out of decisions made from a position of fear and allowing fear to take over. Instead, the practice is to know when you are afraid and really feel it, let it go and move forward into the creative unknown.

Although the season’s chill is upon us and the evenings are dark, take a moment to look up at the Moon during this transit. Appreciate its luminescent glow and let it serve as a metaphor of how there is always light, even in the most somber times.

If you had the foresight to plan new projects or initiate goals during the New Moon earlier this month, you should now start to reap the fruits of your labor. And if you didn’t make any plans, don’t worry; the Full Moon will Illuminate some possibilities for the future.

Spotlight On Information

This Moon will put a spotlight on information—written, spoken, visual, digital—you name it. There was a song back in the 80s by The Police called “Too Much Information” that captures this theme perfectly in these lines: “Too much information running through my brain, Too much information driving me insane.” Don’t be surprised if you’re bombarded and overwhelmed by it all. There will be a lot to process, so try to take it all in stride.

The planet Mercury rules Cancer, so its power will be felt at this Full Moon. That not only means information, it also means communication. And with Uranus turning direct in the skies, it also adds to the mix. This planet of surprises and technology can bring inspiration, ideas and news flashes out of the blue. 

Although your nerves might get a little frazzled around this Full Moon, the happy excitement of the season will make it all worthwhile. The energy of this lunar transit promises lots of socializing and merry-making. Despite the shopping mall crazies, the overall vibe should be bright and cheery. Chances are that you’ll get a myriad of invites since Cancer loves to party. Don’t be afraid to accept any and all invitations, but be sure to carefully mark your calendar so you don’t miss a beat.

Enjoy this month’s Full Moon and let its light brighten those cold winter nights!
