Full Moon in Cancer December 25th: Have a Very Merry Christmas!

Full Moon in Cancer December 25th: Have a Very Merry Christmas!

This is a Christmas made for some home-loving fun with a festive full moon in Cancer -  the all out family sign - on December 25th. There hasn’t been a full moon on Christmas Day since 1977 and there won’t be one until 2034, so this is a truly special Christmas! 

With the moon full in its own sign, romance, tenderness and nostalgia are all on the menu this year. Expect powerful highs and lows and tender, touchy feelings all round. And if you happen to go a little “loony” worry not - it’s all part of this Christmas emotional bonanza! 

You’re in luck if you like cooking for everyone or visiting family, for moon in Cancer is all about gathering your nearest and dearest around the hearth and sharing scrumptious home cooked foods. Enjoy this rare, emotionally rich and magical Christmas!

If family is not your thing, then you’ll be glad to know that Cancer is also an incredibly romantic sign. This Christmas could provide the perfect setting for you to nest, snuggle up with your sweetheart and exchange love and affection under the silver rays. Neptune in Pisces, planet of romance, is perfectly angled to this rare full moon so starry-eyed lovers are in their element this Christmas.

Neptune also rules intoxication, so let the wine flow, bring out the port and share the sherry…  Have a photo album close to hand in case there’s a bout of wistfulness. If all else fails escape into a tearjerking movie with tissues close to hand and let emotion flow, as this full moon in Cancer is full of feeling! Get ready to step into a powerful reverie this Christmas with a generous sprinkling of star-dust, curtesy of Neptune.

This Cancer full moon happens on December 25th at 11.11am GMT (6am in New York and 3am in LA) at 3 degrees Cancer. This promises to be a really magical, if a little emotional, Christmas. Feel the love, share the magic, eat, drink and be merry! Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas dear Aries! This Christmas is simply made for a magical family celebration. Opt for a private, cozy affair or go for a visit to your family home. You may feel emotional and nostalgic about the past and you will enjoy the safety of having your nearest and dearest around you. Even if you are generally quite a toughie this day is guaranteed to pull at your heartstrings. Do you find yourself nowhere near your family this Christmas? Escape the mundane and feel the love any way you can. Rejoice in past memories, watch a film or volunteer at a homeless shelter. Spread the love. It's a time to feel connected, forgive and let go.


Christmas brings a powerful emotional high that you want to share as you are feeling very sociable. You need familiar people around you with whom you can express yourself freely. Pick up the phone and go visit neighbours, family and friends. You may be at the hub of activity, acting as a glue that brings people together this Christmas. Expect emotionally rewarding conversations around the dinner table. If you find yourself far away from your nearest and dearest, then wishes should be pouring in through the telephone, email and whatever communication channels you have available. Have a very merry Christmas!


A very merry Christmas to you, dear Gemini! This Christmas shines a light on all the best that life has to offer. It may be all about the food and presies this year as you cannot wait to see what goodies Santa has brought you… Or it may be all about making someone who you love feel valued and appreciated. As you tend to feel uncomfortable around this much emotion, it’s all about the practical expressions of love that you can muster this Christmas. How can you ground your feelings? How can you consolidate your position? Magic is in the air and it has the power to condense into little particles of gold-dust for you, so enjoy!


You are the absolute star of the show this Christmas with your ruler, the moon, coming into power in its own sign, which is yours! The world is suddenly overflowing with feeling and igniting your imagination, while yummy foods and cozy activities take place all around you. You find yourself right in your watery snug element this Christmas but with a twist: there’s an exotic touch to it all that fires up your imagination and gives you strange dreams and visions of things past and future. You may want to add a foreign touch to the cooking, regale everyone with travelling tales or even organise an escape after-party. Everyone is a little loony today, but this is nothing you cannot handle. This is a day of high spirits, so enjoy it to the max. Have a very merry Christmas, dear Cancer!


There’s something magical about this Christmas for you, dear Leo with a full moon in the most spiritual part of your chart. Even if you’re normally quite an outgoing sign, do steal enough time away from the crowds this Christmas to re-establish your connection with the spirits. Have to spend the day surrounded by people? Let it all wash over you… Just lie back, sip your drink and enjoy the gentle ripple of emotion all around. You may need more intimacy this Christmas, so why not avoid the usual crowds and slip away for a magical tet a tet? And if you feel like a bit of a recluse, don’t worry: your soul is calling out for attention this Christmas. This is the perfect, spiritually charged moment to retreat and recharge your batteries. Take time to be by yourself if need be and let your feelings out. Trust your intuition as it will be uncanny. Merry magical Christmas!


Merry Christmas, dear Virgo, and what a very merry Christmas this will be! Christmas day is all about relationships, friends and family for you - everyone gathering together to share the love. You’re feeling extremely sociable this year and get-togethers are bound to prove highly emotionally rewarding.  With feelings on overdrive, people may be acting a little crazy today, but this is nothing you cannot handle given your characteristic patience and discrimination. Whether you are planning to visit family, be with friends or spend time with your sweetheart, you are bound to feel an intoxicating blend of friendship, romance and snug closeness this Christmas. Let others put you under their magic spell!


Happy Christmas, dear Libra! This Christmas puts you in a place of honour - whether this is at the head of the table, in charge of the preparations, or in some other position of respect. A full moon in your career house right on Christmas Day suggests that something important to your goals and overall direction comes to fruition right on cue this Christmas. Are you making something official? Has a work project culminated? Or is a VIP showing you special attention? A parent may be the apple of your eye and you may be working away to make everything just so. The world may be clogged with more emotion than you are comfortable around but little things can spark your imagination in this magical realm, showing you the way forward. If duty calls you away from home, you are sure to make an impression. All hail!


This is a Christmas like no other, dear Scorpio, filled to the brim with love, romance and sheer happiness! The spotlight falls on your hopes and dreams for the future, especially where these are inspired by your new squeeze (that you can’t keep your hands off), a personal project or the birth of a child. If you happen to be travelling, then this will truly be a holiday to remember. You are seeing the world through rose coloured glasses on this magical Christmas Day. And why not? It’s Christmas after all - a time to believe in magic! You are feeling pretty loved up and carefree this year, able to indulge in all kinds of flights of fancy. Are you in charge of the entertainment? The wine? The afterparty? Perfect! Have a very merry Christmas!


You are normally a party animal but this year’s festivities are all about home and family, dear Sagittarius. Have you just got a mortgage on a house? Or maybe you just moved in with your sweetheart? Whatever it is, this Christmas brings blessings of a private and personal nature. This might be an influx of cash toward your dream house, it may be the birth of a baby that enchants your abode, or a powerful encounter with someone that awakens deep feelings within you. You are not one to wallow in emotion usually but this Christmas is super-charged, so best spend it around your nearest and dearest. It’s time to say good bye to the past and step forth as a new-born babe. And what better time to do this than on this magical Christmas Day? Have a very merry Christmas!


This Christmas is all about those wonderful people that give you a sense of warmth and companionship. Get ready for a wonderful day, surrounded by the people who mean the world to you. If you are having a family get-together, get ready to shower your loved ones with all the attention you can muster! Your world is literally sprinkled with magic due to a wonderful someone - or someones - who enrich your life. As a Capricorn you are probably a bit of a workaholic, but you can forget about work today, as others take you out of your shell. Alternatively, a short getaway with your partner is bound to prove very romantic. This is a wonderfully sociable and stimulating festive season, when you can do much to renew your bonds and re-establish important relationships. Have a very merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas, dear whacky Aquarian friend! Does it fall to you to do all the cooking this year? Or is there some other chore that falls to you because everyone else is simply too busy? Or maybe you’ve been working very hard all the way into Christmas Day? You seem to have your hands full this Christmas… But this is not without pleasure. There may be rather dreamy financial rewards for instance. Or it may be that you are accomplishing something truly valuable. Besides, occupying yourself with basic tasks is the best way to avoid the emotional madness that will no doubt grip everybody else during this festive full moon. You are not keen on an overflow of sentiment, so you may be happiest escaping into the safety of the kitchen… You’d much rather show a special someone you care through actions, not words - oh sweet pleasure!


Oh, this is the sweetest possible festive season for you in many many years, dear Pisces! Is it because of the birth of a child? Or maybe you are freshly in love? If not, get ready to fall in love! The world is rosy, romance is all around and love is oh so sweet on this joyful Christmas Day. This is a happy and carefree Christmas, which will make you feel like a big kid again. No matter your age, you are ready to have some fun! The world around you is charged with a dreamy and fantastical aura as if you are living your very own fairy tale… Well, you are!  You are very much at ease in the realm of feeling and imagination and this is what this Christmas is all about. Enjoy! Merry magical Christmas, dear Pisces!
