Tonight’s full moon in Cancer is an exciting event, as it is the first full moon of this year. To get an idea of how to work with the energies of this full moon on a collective level, let’s look at some of the symbolism associated with the full moon and also the zodiac sign of Cancer.
Full moon cycles can represent endings or coming full circle with a situation. The full moon cycle is a good time to look at what you have been trying to accomplish and to see how far you’ve come. You may get an idea of what you have to do next in order to make even more progress. Full moon cycles are also great times to organize and de-clutter your physical living space. On a spiritual level, it’s a great time to let go of habits and thought processes that don’t serve your highest good.
The zodiac sign of Cancer is a water sign and is often thought to symbolize an emotional, “feminine” perspective and maternal instinct, which can translate to mean the nurturing of others. However, in it’s highest expression, Cancer is about emotional maturity and initiating action based on your heart’s desire. After all, the best way to take care of others is to be emotionally grounded yourself.
With this full moon in Cancer, get in touch with how you feel. Have you been honoring your own emotions recently—or ever? Make it a point to eliminate or adjust the things in your life that keep you from nurturing yourself. Take care of your own emotional needs. Loving yourself is not selfish. It’s healthy and of the utmost importance.
