Cancer is my zodiac sign and in general I am very sensitive to full moons. If you are a Cancer as well or have a loved one who is you might like my Pinterest board of collected Cancer pieces and wisdom called Zodiac Love....us crabs can be complicated.
This full moon I decided to embrace it's power and open to the possibilities.
Last night we went to a Full Moon Yoga Flow at Arise Yoga here in Vernon led by Tawny and it was fantastic. Lots of hip opening to release emotions and moon salutations to the light of candles and a fairy light spiral on the ceiling to symbolize the moon. There are several moon salutation sequences you can do that feel amazing on my Yoga Love Pinterest board.
Mystic Mamma is always a fabulous resource and Tawny read parts of it during the opening meditation. It is the first full moon of 2015 and is also called the Wolf Moon. A big snow storm has gone hand in hand with this moon cycle and halted regular life in the Okanagan and other parts of BC. Schools have been closed and people have been digging out all day to keep up with the lovely light snow that has fallen steadily.
Last night I went out at midnight and felt amazingly alive and energized under the moon glow. I couldn't sleep and my mind swirled with thoughts. When sleep did come it brought wild dreams and imagry that didn't make sense but wasn't unsettling. I really feel like this moon and this month is a time to do some serious work and open myself to answers and watch for direction.
CATHY PAGANO from her Wisdom of Astrology asks:
Will we revert back to our old ways of thinking and doing or will we step into our power and actually create the life we crave?”
“…This Cancer Full Moon wants us to pay attention to our real needs and passions. This potent combination says that the choice is ours—will we align with our soul’s purpose or continue to sleep-walk through life as a servant of patriarchy and corporate consumerism?
Mystic Mamma featured Astral Insights from several astrologers but I have just shared some small portions of the writings that stood out to me. The whole post can be found on Mystic Mamma and there is a great deal of really powerful information that might relate to your life as well.
“The Full Moon in Cancer is engaging your conscious awareness to the profound shifts you have made internally deep within self.
“These changes are revealed through the external events that have or are occurring in your life. These are moving, changing jobs and evolving your beliefs. Letting go of what no longer serves your life path destiny. This is the call of the hour…”
“The Cancer Full Moon message is to do what supports your balance. Strive to be balanced in your male and female energy. This will support you. This will empower you. Your creative genius will bloom.
“It is time that we create new archetypes for men and women. These will allow for your authentic living. The freedom to be who you really are is the New Age dawning. Male is not better than female. Female is not better than male. We are made of both…”
“…The Cancer Moon is reminding you to use your feelings to guide your life. What you think and feel matters. Feelings are your indicators in every moment. Feelings don’t lie. Feelings are never right or wrong. Feelings are the best part of you. Your power lies in what you do with your feelings.”

“The first Full Moon of 2015 is exact on Sunday January 4th at 8:53pm PST…”
“This Full Moon is actually a Grand Cross Full Moon- which means there are planets in all the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) and they are all squaring or opposing each other…”
“This brings up crisis points but also the potential for major realization, aha moments and inner or outer shifts in our personal lives, relationships, home/family situations and career or life purpose.
“This is not a light and casual Full Moon! It it kicking off 2015 in a big way- with focus on what needs to shift, change, transform, end and/or be released in our lives.
“We can use this Full Moon to get clarity on where we are holding on and what we need to let go of- and because the Full Moon is in emotional Cancer part of what we need to let go of is our emotional attachment to the past.

Here I am in my backyard waist deep in snow and grateful for the opportunities for reflection and growth this Wolf Moon offers my emotional Cancer soul.
Be outside friends...bask in the moonlight.
Aaarooo, howl at the moon.
2015 is going to be a beautiful year.
