The first Full Moon of the year will also be the largest, known as a 'Super Moon', as it occurs when the Moon orbits closest to earth. This will occur when the Moon is in cardinal water sign Cancer, the nurturer and caretaker of the zodiac, opposing and reflecting the Sun in resourceful, disciplined and goal driven Capricorn.
The Cancer – Capricorn polarity essentially highlights the need for balance between home and private life and career and public life. However, the common ground between the two signs is the achievement of security. Cancer needs home, roots, nurturing and being needed as a caregiver to feel secure and Capricorn needs to be disciplined and maintain a good work ethic to achieve goals and status in order to feel secure.
This Full Moon is very powerful and quite rare in that it draws in the planetary energy of Venus, Neptune, Mars, Pluto and Jupiter in a configuration known as a kite. This free flowing energy has no obstacles or corners to contend with and therefore provides perfect conditions to manifest your hopes and dreams into reality.
Connect with this Full Moon and let go of that which no longer serves you and holds you back. Move forward into the New Year feeling lighter and unhampered and experience the alchemy of the medley of planetary energy joining this Full Moon.
Happy New Year everyone!
