Reflections for the Full Moon in Cancer : Feel the feels, but don't get swept away.

How is 2022 treating you so far?

I have been easing into the new year. The end of 2021 and beginning of 2022 were full on wrapping up the moon journals, but now I am taking some time off until the 31st to step back and see the full picture and decide how I can best be of service to you over the next 12 months. I have some ideas, but like all good things they need to percolate.


We have both Venus and Mercury retrograde at the moment, weaving a web of reviewing and revisiting parts of our lives, and technological mishaps abound. And then we have the highly emotional Full Moon in Cancer..


The Full Moon in Cancer arrives on 18 January at 9.48 am AEST.

Cancer is the most sensitive sign of the Zodiac. Underneath her hard shell and terrifying pincers is a well of memories, emotions, and deep sensitivity and nurturing.

We often forget that sensitivity is a strength. That it takes more courage to present our soft underbelly than our defence mechanisms.

The Sun is sitting opposite the moon in Cancer's opposite, Capricorn. Focused, disciplined, Capricorn doesn't have much time for the fuzzy feels and this axis reminds us to check in with what measure of our sensitivity is medicine, and what measure carries us away into the land of nostalgia and wallowing.

Reflection Questions


~ In what ways do you put up your shell to protect yourself? Where did you learn to do this, and how does this show up in your ability to connect with yourself and others?


~ What memories and emotions are coming up for you around this time? Are they serving you?
