The Full Moon is the completion of a cycle and with that traditionally a time to release all that no longer serves your highest good. The light of the Full Moon illuminates everything that is interfering with your spiritual path, thus helping you to be enlightened about what is blocking you. Then you are able to let it go, release it completely.
January's Full Moon was called the Full Wolf Moon, because it appeared when wolves howled outside the villages. It is also known as the Old Moon.

This Full Moon is in the loyal, caring and intuitive sign of Cancer and is all about feelings. Everything that was hidden is being pulled to the surface, and this makes you feel really vulnerable. Upon asking for help with your emotions, you may feel pressured by others to behave in a certain way and do what they tell you to do. This may bring up feelings of insecurity.
Try not to be pressured into anything that you are not ready for. Just because others want you to do something, doesn’t mean it’s right for you. What’s important now is for you to take a really good look at what you are willing to accomplish and what maybe needs a little push in the right direction. You hate letting go of anything, so try and see what you are willing and able to release.
Highly emotional and sensitive Cancer may awaken a yearning in you for a fulfilling, deep relationship with someone you can rely on and trust completely. As Cancer has issues with trusting new people, you may yearn for someone from your past, it’s like an ache going through your whole body. Even if you are in a relationship, you long to be much closer to your partner. The Full Moon is drawing out your feelings about those people who you want in your life, making it very clear who needs to go.
This Full in oversensitive Cancer will draw out some old resentment. Your inability to let a certain situation go up to now has been holding you back. You feel justified in your anger, but the truth is that your resentment is only hurting you and keeping you back from fulfilling what you would like to achieve. The rage you are carrying is blocking you from moving forward, especially in your career. Once you let it go, you will feel a surge of energy catapulting you forward.
Highly intuitive Cancer will help you to let the wave of energy from this Full Moon cleanse you of all old patterns. The energy shift is going to be amazing and if you let it in to your crown and heart chakra an immense activation will take place. You can feel it swirl through your body as it completely cleanses and clears you. This way a great healing process is activated within your body and soul. If you allow these energies in, your whole being will be shifting in a positive, new and successful direction.
