Full Moon in Cancer:

Pull Up the Drawbridge

The astrological Full Moon is about completion, particularly the completion or ending of an emotional cycle.

With the Full Moon in Cancer on January 17th, 2022, there’s a sense that emotions can become overwhelming – now is the time to protect yourself and to hunker down for an emotional storm.

The Moon is strongly associated with emotions and feelings at any time, and the zodiac sign of Cancer is known to be one of the most emotional in astrology – it is a water sign, after all.

Put these two factors together and it’s easy to see why a Cancer Full Moon could provoke such an overload of feelings.

Fortunately, Cancer is also a cardinal sign in astrology, so this will enable us to take action to deal with the overwhelming energy – even if that action is to simply retreat and pull up the drawbridge.

Under the influence of the Cancer Full Moon, we can expect a highly sensitive day, when people will feel touchy, perhaps over-reacting all too easily.

Kindness will be important, and so will tolerance and patience.

A creative outlet for all this emotion is also helpful, and the signs which manage best under this influence will be those who don’t attempt to bottle up their feelings.

Cancer energy can be snappy when unbalanced or upset, however, so some tempers will be flaring and there could be a lot of passive aggressive behavior around.

In astrology, Full Moons are also an opportunity for us to deal with challenges from our shadow selves.

The shadow side of Cancer’s energy involves authority, strictness and a somewhat harsh emotional approach.

If these things trigger you or push your buttons during this Full Moon, think about how much of it you might have brought upon yourself through an overly emotional reaction to something.

This isn’t a blame game by any means, and you may well experience things which are not remotely your fault – but understanding how your own actions have consequences is a key part of the learning opportunity presented to us by every Full Moon.

Horoscopes: How Does the Cancer Full Moon Affect Each Zodiac Sign?

Each Sun sign will experience the Cancer Full Moon in a slightly different way, but all signs will be trying to handle something of an emotional onslaught.


Aries Zodiac Sign (Aries Dates: March 20 – April 19) During the Cancer Full Moon

This Full Moon is about changes in the home or family, Aries, and you may feel sentimental or emotional about them.

Trying to maintain the status quo against the odds simply won’t work – try to embrace the change, to grow with it and to learn from it.


Taurus Zodiac Sign (Taurus Dates: April 20 – May 20) During the Cancer Full Moon

During a very busy time, the last thing you need is emotional overwhelm – but you’re taking on far too much, Taurus, and something has to give.

Try to delegate some of your tasks so that you have more time to simply rest and be. You can’t do everything yourself, and you don’t need to.


Gemini Zodiac Sign (Gemini Dates: May 21 – June 20) During the Cancer Full Moon

Issues around money may push all the wrong buttons during this Full Moon, Gemini, but what matters is how you react to any potential mini crisis.

Stay calm and use your logicalrational mind rather than your emotions. You’ve got this – but if you panic or over-react, you may land yourself in deep water.


Cancer Zodiac Sign (Cancer Dates: June 21 – July 21) During the Cancer Full Moon

Speak your truth, Cancer. The Full Moon in your own sign is your chance to be heard. Don’t waste it. Whatever needs to be said, say it now, and demand that your emotions are respected.

You’ve taken trouble from someone for far too long now, so it’s about time that you stand your ground and end it.


Leo Zodiac Sign (Leo Dates: July 22 – August 22) During the Cancer Full Moon

Expect to feel a lot of empathy with others during this Full Moon. You may easily be moved to tears or laughter, without even really knowing why. That’s OK.

Don’t seek to reason away your feelings or to rationalize them, just let them flow. Having a good cry is not childish or a waste of time; it’s an emotional release, and that’s what you need right now.


Virgo Zodiac Sign (Virgo Dates: August 23 – September 22) During the Cancer Full Moon

You’re being called upon to take the lead during this Full Moon, probably much to your displeasure. At work or at home, someone has to step up and that someone is you.

Gather your courage in both hands and get on with it. You may feel emotionally overwhelmed but in practice, you’re more than capable, and you will look back in this with some pride.


Libra Zodiac Sign (Libra Dates: September 23 – October 22) During the Cancer Full Moon

A Full Moon in your career zone highlights a dilemma, Libra – what is good news for your career may be bad news for your family, or vice versa.

You may have to make some difficult choices now, but don’t make them in a panic or a hurry. Ask for time to consider the situation. Discuss with your loved ones. Come to a calm and sensible decision.


Scorpio Zodiac Sign (Scorpio Dates: October 23 – November 21) During the Cancer Full Moon

Gaps in your knowledge or skill set may be woefully exposed by this Full Moon, causing you embarrassment or upset – but this will quickly pass.

Importantly, however, this has shown you where you can grow and learn. Grab that chance with both hands and be grateful for the opportunity to develop in this way.


Sagittarius Zodiac Sign (Sagittarius Dates: November 22 – December 20) During the Cancer Full Moon

This Moon is about debts – financial, emotional, or practical. Someone needs to be paid, whether you do it with moneykindness or love.

Honor the promises you have made and be sure that others honor their promises to you too. There are issues of trust around during this Full Moon, and it’s important that you don’t give people reason to be suspicious.


Capricorn Zodiac Sign (Capricorn Dates: December 21 – January 19) During the Cancer Full Moon

The Full Moon shines from your love zone and you may be overwhelmed in a good way with this, if you’re happily in love.

However, you may also be overwhelmed by a failing relationship or your fear of losing someone you love. Seek help where you can, so that you can bring this matter to a successful conclusion. It’s not set in stone, Capricorn, and you can influence what happens.


Aquarius Zodiac Sign (Aquarius Dates: January 20 – February 17) During the Cancer Full Moon

This Moon is about your routines – and your liking for them. Expect something to happen which highlights a missed opportunity, when you didn’t move quickly enough.

You’re being asked to be more flexible and fleet-footed, and to make decisions on the fly. This is not comfortable for you, but if you can give it a go, you’ll be very glad that you did.


Pisces Zodiac Sign (Pisces Dates: February 18 – March 19) During the Cancer Full Moon

Creatively, this Moon may open up the emotional floodgates for you, Pisces, allowing you to express your feelings through art, providing a valuable emotional release.

It’s important now that you take some risks too, so step out of your comfort zone and do something brave. This will make you feel alive and invigorated, and that in turn will help with any sensitivity overwhelm.

    I enjoy attending Zoom events on Thursday, especially when you choose and analyze charts for those who are present at the time. I can imagine their faces and I already know their names, and I feel like I know you all :-) And I'm always thrilled the way you react (like a child) when you open any chart, because you always see good things first, but also give useful advice when needed. That says a lot about you Kelli and I just love it. Thank you for that! :-) P.S. I can't mark the stars (I don't know why) but they're all on!Cached
