Happy New Year! It seems like almost everyone I spoke to regarding their end of 2017 found themselves in a similar emotional intersection. Perhaps it was a blossoming Full Moon in Cancer or more evidence to prove how connected we all are, but the theme was - I want to have a mindful not a mindless holiday. 2017 was life-changing and life-defining for so many and there was this general impulse to go within. Which I was happy to see.
A full moon on the first day of 2018 is sure to center this new year with a powerful swim in the Moon’s emotion ocean. As such, our emotional ideas and experiences with family, home, mother figures, and the context we need for preserving our emotional security will be strengthened by the Full Moon in Cancer on January 1st. Remember, Full Moons are full circle moments so think back to 6 months ago on June 23rd 2017 to find the beginning of a theme that will reach a strong conclusion/continuation. This a Full Moon that will give you permission to own your emotions without apology. So be upfront and clear about what emotions are driving you to make certain decisions so others can act in integrity aground you.
Mercury isn’t the planet to retrograde - though I wish we were in January 10th and out of the shadow period already! - as you’ll learn on Tuesday when Uranus in Aries moves direct.
