    January’s Full Moon in Cancer is also known as the Wolf Moon, named after the hungry, howling winter wolves of the season.


    Astrologically, full moons are a moment of surrender and release. This is not a time for manifestation, but a chance to reap what you’ve sown the past six months in the Cancer area of your birth chart—it's a moment for caring deeply…and perhaps one to witness where you’ve been ignoring your own needs.


    Cancer energy, at its best, embodies the Divine Feminine within us all. La Luna is the great Mother, and with a Full Moon in her home sign, our emotional needs will rise to the surface of our awareness.


    Because of its opposition with a retrograde Mercury, you might also notice the tides turning in a few conversations. It’s important to speak up for yourself, especially around themes of safety and security, but know that this story is still unfolding. If communication happens that makes you feel a bit…lost at sea, expect more clarity by the time Mercury stations direct later in the month.


    Think back to the corresponding Cancer New Moon that happened on June 28th, 2022. You might notice themes that began last summer now culminating.


    The cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) will feel this Full Moon most intensely.
