Who will be affected the most? If you have significant placements in your chart in Cancer or Capricorn or have your Sun, Moon or Ascendant in these signs.
This particular full moon is called a Full Wolf Moon by Native Americans because wolves were more often heard howling during this time, which they saw as a positive omen.
This full moon is all about questioning the security in your life especially as it relates to your home, family and related activities such as cooking and gardening.
It will likely feel quite intense and emotional as the Moon is in it’s home sign of Cancer and the Moon is connected to emotions, and the subconscious. This also gives us a really powerful opportunity to release and create a real sense of belonging in the world.
Cancer energy is like the matriarchal nurturing energy connected to our ancestors, lineage and setting up a secure home environment.
So anything that may be connected with your sense of security (or lack of it) whether that is your source of financial income, or how stable your relationships are.
On the same Axis is the Capricorn energy that is connected with our career – is it fulfilling you? is it a good fit or is it time to change things up?
There is a very strong opposition with Pluto this full Moon which means inner turmoil and relationship drama. Your feelings can intensify to such an extreme level that you can no longer control your own reactions and behaviour. You may experience dramatic mood swings, feeling strong and sexy one moment then nose dive into depression.
Some feelings you may experience at this time are hopelessness, fear, jealousy, and obsessiveness – seriously this is such a powerful energy! It may not feel great at the time, but think of it as a gift (if you can) where you are going on a dark journey to get hidden treasure. The treasure is new insight and ultimately a breaking down of anything not serving you now so that you can create something better for the future.
It’s not the best time to make important decisions right now- hold off for at least a few days if you can!
Venus is also currently in Retrograde… This helps us focus on the patterns we have been creating around relationships, love, beauty and harmony. These relationships are not just with others but also our relationship with money and the things that we value.
This will last until the 29th January and may be quite an emotional time- everything no longer serving you from a relationship point of view will fall away. Especially after the last 2 years, this may mean a culmination of things that have been brewing for a while.
Uranus is also just about to turn direct after months in retrograde. This has given us brain fog and a lack of clarity which will now begin to ease. I’ve really been feeling this!
There is a LOT of energetic shifts in January and I wouldn’t say it’s the ideal time to launch something or really push too much. Tune into the restful energy of winter and into HOW you truly want to FEEL as we start to see the very first signs of spring here in the UK. Trust that everything will happen at the right time and you are right where you are meant to be!
