December 26th Full Moon in Cancer: Reflecting on Growth

    SIGN: Cancer

    ELEMENT: Water

    PLANETARY RULER: Moon in Cancer

    DEGREE: 

    DATE: Tuesday, December 26th, 2023

    TIME: 7:33 PM EST


    • 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.

    • Cancer energy, at its best, instinctively knows how to nurture. Ruling the Moon, our needs are always evolving, but Cancer energy somehow always knows, often without even speaking, how to take care of people. It’s also very concerned with family, so landing right around the holidays makes this lunation particularly sweet and nostalgic.

    • 2023’s Full Moon in Cancer is also about the structures that help us grow over time. The Moon is making a beautiful sextile to Jupiter in Taurus, while the Sun is in a sextile to Saturn, suggesting that we’ll be pondering both what keeps us afloat, and the journey that the raft we built is moving us towards.

    • The end of the year is always a nice time to reflect, but this lunation marks a profound opportunity to both release what served us this year and look forward to where we’re headed in 2024. It’s an emotional time, but a supportive one rather than disruptive.

    • Think back to the corresponding Cancer New Moon that happened back on July 17th, 2023. You might notice themes that began back in the summer now culminating. The cardinal signs (Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, and Libra) will feel this Full Moon most intensely.

    • JOURNAL PROMPTS:
    • When was the last time I cried? Why?
    • How do I self-soothe?
    • Who am I around when I feel the most safe and comfortable?
