This January 17th, we will have the first full moon of 2022; it will be in the sign of Cancer. The moon rules this sentimental and sensitive zodiac sign that brings its energies and influence to us at the end of this lunar cycle.
This full moon is known as the Wolf Moon because the wolves become restless and nervous, howling more than usual during its appearance. During the lunar cycles, the energies and emotions stimulated at the beginning of the new moon, and that have been transforming and developing throughout the process, will reach their peak at the full moon.
How will this Full Moon in Cancer affect us?
This last phase of the moon in Cancer will bring us a lot of movement in the emotional realm and make us connect at a deeper level with our inner self — for some zodiac signs more than others. After transiting through the Capricorn season, which has made us focus more on our goals and careers, this full moon allows us to focus on our raw emotions.
With Pluto being opposite the Full Moon, known as a dark planet, this phase will be about dealing with and embracing our hidden feelings, working on our relationships, and strengthening those bonds that have deteriorated.
Connect with your inner self and with your spirituality
In order to find strength in ourselves and be able to achieve those professional goals and purposes we have, we must accept all the influences we have within us, both positive and negative.
This full moon is an excellent opportunity to reflect on what we feel and face our more sentimental
and vulnerable side because it is just as important as our stronger side.
Sometimes we cover up these emotions or ignore them when we should just accept that they are also part of us and move on. We must acknowledge them. Connect with those feelings and accept your inner self as it is.
Listen to your instinct
Taking advantage of Cancer’s influence on this full moon, your receptivity will be more acute, and it will be an auspicious time to listen to your instincts and let them guide you and trust what you feel.
It will also be a very promising period to tap into these instincts and explore areas such as creativity and interpersonal relationships.
The power of the full moon
With all the shakings that will come during this full moon, our energies will also be agitated, making us feel very restless and eager to expand our minds. We may even feel some euphoria in situations that usually do not cause us much emotion.
And just as it brings strong emotions, not all of them have to be positive. Every situation can quickly become negative when the intensity of emotions is not controlled, so be very cautious during tense moments.
