This Full Moon in Cancer will occur Monday, January 9 at 2:30 am Eastern (7:30 am GMT) at 19 degrees. Full Moons represent the culmination of those things that were begun with the New Moon (in this case the December 24 New Moon in Capricorn). The Cancer Full Moon opposes the Sun in Capricorn; you may feel torn between your emotional needs at home and with your family (Cancer) and your ambitions outside the home (Capricorn).

I dislike the idea of New Year’s resolutions (they are rarely kept, and we are pressured by our society to make them; besides, any day we decide to make a change for the better is the perfect day to initiate that change!). That said, the December 24 Capricorn New Moon was a perfect time to create new to-do lists or plans to better yourself, your family, and the world at large—and to stick to them. Did you complete your tasks? Are you sticking to your lists? This Full Moon asks that we be decisive about our situations, both at home and away, and to take action to make them the best that they can be.
