Releasing Attachment to Outcome
Evaluating Personal Ethics
The Cancer Full Moon occurs at 3:48pm EST / 1:48pm MST on Monday, January 17th, 2022
January’s Full Moon brings the energetic peak to this season’s Venus and Mercury retrograde vibes. Oye! Emotions can be super charged around a sense of longing or a deep desire for security and safety in relationships. At the same time, consider whether your expectations are realistic, and be willing to examine your need for attachment. Do you or your partner actually need some space now?
The Cancer Full Moon is a great time to tap into a deeper sense of purpose. Create space and permission for play and consider this time an invitation to reconnect with what inspires you. This can also be a time for new understanding in relationships with mothers or mother figures.
As you evaluate your progress towards your goals, really consider where you may need to act with greater discipline or consistency. What habits need to shift to create more support for what you’re trying to accomplish?
Tensions may come to a head with the calling to address deeper-level issues with your partner. Remember to stay open-minded, patient and willing to listen. Notice your words and actions when you feel triggered or defensive – this is not a time to act out of spite, or woundedness, although Venus in her shadow season may tempt you towards some of these lower vibrations. You may need to get a personal truth off your chest now, especially around a core need. Breathe, and allow yourself to be guided by an honest heart.
