What does it all mean?

  • The moon is happy in the sign of Cancer because she rules here. Being sympathetic towards the worries of others is easier, we are more empathetic now. 
  • We can be more nurturing when there is a cancer moon
  • Domestic chores and responsibilities may be easier to do now, in fact some of us may be very happy making our home comfortable and safe
  • Cooking may be fun to do now,  so go ahead and try out that new recipe
  • The more emotionally sensitive of us, may take offense or feel slighted or more vulnerable during the Cancer moon… Caution is advised though, check your facts before you “accuse”. 
  • Some of us may feel needy, while others of us are happy to be the cuddler, helping our loved ones feel secure and in deed needed. Caution is advised that some of us can go over board on the needy thing during this moon period, so be careful if you don’t want to “scare” someone off… 
  • It’s a time for cuddles, caring, good food and just plain old lovings… 🙂 Enjoy..
  • This may be a good time to learn new things, especially those that relate to the domestic front or family. Take up a cooking class, or try new recipes, decorate the home or enjoy craft projects with the kids. This may also be a good time to do some tidy up and mini reno’s on the house.  
  • In the 9th house: Personal freedom is a must for the next few days, so get out or stay in… but whatever you do, have some you time doing just what it is that makes you feel good. The future looks brighter and we are capable of seeing life in a more positive frame of mind. Our belief system may get some attention under this influence, however, it’s best not to get too radical about them when engaging in heated debates… Keep in mind that everyone is entitled to their own opinions… Could be a good time for a weekend getaway for some, healing retreats, spiritual quests, meditation are all good to experience now.
  • This may be a positive time for: Beauty treatments, Brewing beer, Buying antiques, Buying for speculation, Can foods, Collect on debts, Hair cut (for growth) and plant bulbs from seeds.
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. 
  • Moon in Cancer: (these folk may really feel the influence of the moon, emotions may be close to the surface)
  • Ascendant in Cancer:
  • Sun in Cancer:
  • Moon in Capricorn
  • Sun in Capricorn
  • Moon in Sagittarius
  • Sun in Sagittarius
  • Moon in the 4th, 9th house: (equal)
  • Aspects to the Moon, or planets in the 4th, 9th house’s
  • To a lessor extent, those who have personal planets in Capricorn.

The Full Moon occurs on Friday January 10th @ 2:21 pm (ET) 11:21 am (PT) in the sign of Cancer. The influence of the Cancer moon will be stronger and may cause some of us to feel off kilter emotionally… If you are feeling overly restless or emotional, take care of how you react as it is very easy to over react during this time. And, while the full moon is traditionally thought of as a time to finish up tasks and for things to come to a conclusion, the Lunar energy might not be co-opertative. If you have important papers to sign or significant events to attend/organize, wait until next week if you can. 

It is also the first Lunar Eclipse of new year/decade.  The affects of the Lunar Eclipse may indicate a change or the ending of a situation for some of us… the area of life affected will depend upon the house the moon connects with in your own personal chart. If your birthday falls on January 9th, 10th (espiecially) or the 11th, you may be in for a pretty important year ahead… 🙂 


Uranus goes Direct on January 10th 8:49 pm (ET) 5:49 pm (PT).

Uranus is the planet of shock and chaos, he rules the unpredictable Aquarius, and is connected to the 11th house of hobbies, friends and humanatarian situations. .. If you have been thinking of trying something new, now may be an opportune time to do so… 🙂 You may even “shock” yourself with your determination and excitment… 

Making new friends from outside of your “regualar” circle is possible, you may find yourself attracted to someone from another country, and/or feel an urge to learn about a culture outside of your own. Anything is possible with Uranus, however, he can be a bit of a rebel, so take care 😉 Try not to do something “outlandish”, just because you want to be different 😉

This celestial event will have a slight affect on us all, however, it will affect more, those with the following chart influences.

  • Uranus in Aquarius
  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Moon in Aquarius
  • Ascendent in Aquarius
  • Midheaven in Aquarius
  • Aspects to Uranus
  • Activity in the 11th house

The Moon and Astrology


In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-of-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void of Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void of Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Of-Course Moon:

These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  (thanks to astrologer Jim Shawvan):

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as Opportunity Periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods. astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.
