January 17, 2022 – Cancer Full Moon Astrology Forecast

Our first full moon of the year is rising in your sky, dear Cancer!

This moon has potent meaning for everyone, with Cancer being a cardinal sign. We had a taste of another cardinal sign earlier this month with the Capricorn New Moon, and Cancer will hit us in our home sector, our sentimental lives. We may see our families suddenly change, whether it’s where we live or how we live. For all Cancers, Capricorns, cardinal signs, or those with personal planets in Cancer, this full moon will pull you into action, and you will need to exercise mindfulness and self-awareness to make sure the actions you take are for the best. What you choose will ring changes in the future that will last potentially through the year and farther.

Beginning with the Full Moon in Cancer, with the Moon opposing Pluto and the Moon trine Venus, the week will start off with a bang and taper into a series of turbulent, turbulent, and turbulent events that will eventually converge as the week approaches. In like a lion, out like a lamb! With the first full moon of the year in Cancer, our focus will be on comfort, security, and stability. But will we achieve it? 

In particular, if your personal planet is within 5 degrees of the Full Moon (27 Cancer), you will be positioned to harness this powerful energy, making you more industrious and productive. Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, you will feel this pull powerfully! 

The January 17 full moon at 28 degrees Cancer, as it will mark a major moment in your personal life, events leading to a climax and or a resolution of something that had been the source of great tension before. These tensions may be to do with a break up with a lover, the ending of a relationship with a family member, a pending move, or maybe a significant career change. This moon will help you find the balance between your life and work as the rubble clears. 

There will also be an opposition to Pluto with the Moon in Cancer at 27 degrees, conjuncting the fixed star Procyon, sometimes known as the little dog star. Pluto will be pointing to the ways that power influences our lives. It may be that corporate rules, a function of the law, is deciding a pathway in your life, and creates a road block that cannot be moved. If it can’t be moved, you will need to go over, under, or around the obstacle. How you do so will be critical, as your choices will include both legal or illegal means. Choose wisely when you come across solution to your problems. Procyon, the little dog star, sometimes bites!

But fear not, you will be given opportunities to deal with the emotional intensity of this full moon. Take them as they come, they will help you resolve problems and eliminate elements of your life that are not serving your best purpose. Deep clean your life, your social circle, your routines and home life. You may find your feelings will deepen, and you will want to schedule some time to yourself for reflection and serenity.  It’s a perfect time for self-care.

The moon is dignified in Cancer. Even in turbulent times, the moon is shining upon you in a happy place, and should lead you to good outcomes, even if unexpected tensions occur.

Energetically this Moon has some pleasant moments mixed with more angular alignments, so we might ride an emotional rollercoaster. The Sun is poised to move from Capricorn to Aquarius, and while this may lighten our burden a little, we will have to contend with the limiting energy that comes from the Moon in opposition to Saturn. The opposition can have a depressing effect, as we feel restricted or constrained. You may be facing a New Year’s diet resolution that is chafing against your expanding desires for comfort food. 

Uranus is direct! Expect chaotic disputes, disagreements and behavior, and fortunately, when the week is over, we will be saved by a lovely trine from Venus. Arguments, frictions, will be smoothed over. You may even see a monetary increase, or a lucky win! This Cancer moon is all about water. Like water, be willing to go with the flow. You will only tire yourself out by fighting the tides, but if you are willing to let go and be fluid, hidden blessings will come your way. Expect resistance from within at first,, but know that the more you go with the flow, potential and possibilities will open up to you. It will be worth it! 

If you’re feeling like the start of the new year has been especially sleepy, you’re not alone. When the Sun enters Aquarius, you will feel more in your element as the energy for the coming month will be focused on less home-career change and drama. The stability you find this month will set the stage for you to explore more from a safe distance, striving for knowledge and objectivity. Most likely, this full moon period will highlight the need to combine work with family or personal life. You will use this time wisely if you engage in the work of healing or forgiveness.

Defining Home: New Moon at 28 Degrees of Cancer, July 20, 2020

This lunation emphasizes again, as have the past lunations recently, the importance of the Cancer-Capricorn polarity. Have you experienced the pressure of your home life, your emotional self, and the outer world, the work place, your career, your social standing? The pandemic has delivered a hefty one-two blow to some of the most critical sectors of our lives, our home and our work. It is expected that there will be a wave of evictions in the near future, highlighting the upsets of Cancer, and of course, those evictions would not have been possible without the shut downs affecting our work lives.

This new moon promises a new beginning in this cycle of endings; there will be opportunities in the midst of the crisis, but they may not be easy, they may be unexpected. Be flexible and adaptable to avoid the friction of the new moon lunation that opposes the powerhouse conjunction in Capricorn between Saturn at 21 degrees, Pluto at 23 degrees, and Jupiter at 28 degrees. This opposition will leave a generational stamp, echoing for years to come, for these are time lords and generational planets. 

Saturn is assessing and taking inventory for his last pass before he goes back to Aquarius for good. Now is the time to make your appeals, to change those rigid constrictions that might be holding you back before Saturn sweeps past. It could be a relationship of business or marriage, a duty or obligation, an issue of a status quo that now seems to strangle. Change it, or knuckle under and accept how it changes you.

Mars squares Mercury in a less than favorable aspect. Mars in Aries at 12 degrees is turbo charged and wants to prove himself, to excel in his aggressive aspects. Mercury in Cancer at 8 degrees may oil the gears of communication by being tapped into those fruitful emotional connections, but paired with Mars’s fiery aspect, avoid arguments. Anyone else notice the aggressive Microsoft update that hijacked people’s PC screens? Perhaps we can thank this Mercury square Mars aspect for it. Drama and heat can explode under the right circumstances. 

Mercury finally went forward, stationing direct on July 12. If you managed to make it through the retrograde period unscathed, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Others of us may have not been so lucky, dropping our cell phones into puddles. 

Venus is moving forward in Gemini, where she’s spent quite a lot of time already. Many communications continue between neighborhood people who perhaps were more standoffish during lock down. Ruled by Mercury, this means Venus’s energy flows in support of Mercury, and she herself takes on mercurial qualities. Your conversations with lovers may be increasingly quick witted, but just as easily could be full of quick mood changes as Venus tried to make up her mind on what she wants. The sign of the twins may have given her more options to choose from then she expected to have.

Neptune at 20 degrees of Pisces also trines the sun and the moon. Water, water, water. Emotions run high and this trine will facilitate those sleepy day dreams, our hazy musings, our inspired artistic thinking or creative juices. Just make sure this Neptune energy isn’t working toward your detriment, such as leading you into a fog of misdirection, where information may be unreliable and deceptive. Double check the information you get and don’t take anyone’s word at face value.

Uranus in Taurus at 10 degrees has made it through the first decan of our very different world, since when he first entered in May of 2018. He is reshaping our material world and resources in slow and cataclysmic ways. We can interpret a large part of this will be the falling away of some of the last of the previous generations who saw the Great Wars, the graying of the Boomers, and how this will affect the wealth of the Millennials who come after. The pandemic has spurred the Federal Reserve to introduce aggressive monetary policies to help shore up the impact of the shut down. How we acquire resources and use them will change over the coming years, and no doubt the foundation for those changes has just been set.
