Full Moon in Cancer 2012 - Wolf Moon

The first full moon in January, or the moon after Yule, is known as a Wolf Moon, according to Native American Indians.

On Monday 9th January 2012, the full moon in Cancer at 18 degrees 27 minutes is a Wolf Moon.  Any planets, points or angles in your chart at this degree will be able to feel the potency of this lunar energy.

Full Moons signal completion, endings or culmination points.  It is a time when the moon is brilliantly reflecting the sun's light.   We are urged to gain a healthy balance between the inner (Cancer) and outer (Capricorn) world, our home (Cancer) life versus our career (Capricorn).  

Full Moons also tend to reveal the shadow sides of the signs involved, in this case, Cancer and Capricorn.  The intensity of the lunar radiance may expose the emotional drought in us, where our inner needs are sacrificed or simply not met (Cancer).  It can also indicate the shirking of responsibilities or being power hungry (Capricorn).  The houses this full moon axis straddle across can give us further information on the nature of these shadow qualities.

Mercury enters Capricorn a day before this full moon can help us to discipline our mind and to carefully plan our next step.  With Mars in Virgo in a supporting aspect to the Moon (sextile), we are encouraged to analyse any situations methodically before action.

Where does this full moon axis fall in your chart?
