It’s officially a new year, but do things *feel* new yet? The start of 2022 hasn’t exactly been smooth, especially when it comes to astrology. You may still be struggling with a drama that you hoped to leave behind in 2021, but couldn’t resolve in time.
There may be a lot of unfinished business, but the first Full Moon of 2022 can give you a much-needed boost. And if you’re one of the zodiac signs that will be most affected by the January 2022 Full Moon, this Full Moon could be an uplifting reminder to keep going.
Just days after Mercury goes retrograde, a Full Moon in Cancer, aka the Wolf Moon, will take place on January 17 at 6:48 p.m. ET, which makes it harder to focus and communicate clearly. Venus will also retrograde during this Full Moon, causing relationship conflicts to resurface and financial problems to worsen.
When a planet retrogrades, it begins to move backward on the zodiac wheel, making it harder to move forward as it draws your attention to an unresolved past. Fortunately, the upcoming Full Moon could lead to a beautiful turning point.
This Full Moon is particularly special. After all, it literally happens in Cancer, and the Moon is the designated planetary ruler of this cardinal water sign. Cancer is where the Moon feels at home.
This Full Moon will show you the level of compassion your heart craves, revealing what matters most to you. However, because this Full Moon opposes dark and intimidating Pluto, you may have to fight harder than ever. Here’s why the cardinal signs feel it the most:
This Full Moon could reveal the level of comfort you feel in your personal space and bring awareness to your family dynamics.
You deserve to feel like you “belong” somewhere, so let this New Moon guide you to your heart and remind you of what matters.
However, this Full Moon wants you to remember the most important relationship of all, the one you have with yourself.
Loving someone and working with someone shouldn’t mean neglecting yourself. Let this Full Moon remind you that you matter.
You see that success happens outside of your comfort zone. Lately, you’ve been removing yourself from demanding situations and giving yourself some tender loving care. However, you might also get too comfortable.
This Full Moon illuminates your career sector, bringing your focus to the goals you’ve set for yourself and the ambition you’ve been doubting.
If your personal life isn’t supporting your plans for success, it might be time to rearrange some priorities.
You understand that relationships need compromise. People can be unreliable, which is why you learned to rely on yourself. Independence is empowering, but too much of it can become more detrimental than beneficial.
This Full Moon could reveal which relationships mean the most to you, tapping into your desire to pay more attention to the alliances that align with your life. It may be time to extend an olive branch or at least a helping hand.
