The Moon rules our feelings, needs and instinctive reactions - and it's at maximum strength in Cancer and when Full. Put the two together and this Cancer Full Moon is going to be a veritable roller-coaster of tantrums, tears of joy and of sorrow and emotional highs and lows!
It is no accident that werewolves come forth on the full moon or that the word "lunatic" stems from our Moon. The Moon rules our instinctive, animal nature (see the planets in astrology). Accordingly, this Full Moon in Cancer has the power to bring out our inner pre-verbal selves, making us more needy, irrational and insecure. It may send us into an emotional frenzy, taking over completely and drowning out everything else!
Get ready for major emotional revelations - especially where your intimate environment, home and family are concerned! This Full Moon in Cancer packs a real punch, as it follows right on the heels of the intense weekend of the 3rd-4th January involving Sun in Capricorn and brings Sun and Moon in conflict with the karmic Lunar Nodes and with the ongoing Uranus-Pluto square. Whatever people hunger for is going to make itself felt to a powerful extent, making it impossible to hold back moody behaviour, tears or tantrums.
This high feeling tide is a chance to be there for your loved ones, show them how much you care and let them do the same.

Kissing it better may well make it go away today! Best tread sensitively, treat people kindly and have a box of tissues ready...
With Chiron in Pisces offering a harmonious planetary aspect, this Cancer Full Moon is a great opportunity to release pain, heal past wounds and let the waters run clear, so you can enter the year with a lighter heart!
