The Full Moon on January 4, 2015 at 11:53 PM (PDT) nests nostalgically in her own sign of Cancer. Of the entire zodiac, the Moon is most comfortable in the sign of Cancer, and as a Full Moon on this date, becomes extra powerful.
Expect to feel, FEEL being the operative word, all the emotions of the sign of Cancer, love of family, nostalgia, comfort at home, mother and mothering, emotional rapport, and intense emotions.
Celebrate the Moon by dancing in her light, lighting a candle, cooking a special meal for the family, putting away the Christmas ornaments and getting in touch with your feelings.
This January Moon is known to native peoples as the Wolf Moon because the howl of the Wolf could be easily heard through the crisp, cold air. This was a way of keeping track of the seasons by equating the name of the Moon to what was going on in the natural world.
This Moon will be especially potent for those with the Sun, Moon, Ascendent in the Cardinal signs: Cancer, Capricorn, Aries and Libra.
