The first full moon of 2017 takes place on January 12th.
A high energy and tension will be present by a challenging combination called a Grand Cross.
Generally speaking, the full moon gives you the opportunity to celebrate what you’ve accomplished. The full moon is the brightest of all moon phases and has the potential to fill you with profound emotional awareness and creativity.
With the energy of the full moon you are given the opportunity to remove all dense, stored energies. It’s a cosmic cleaning time.
Therefore the full moon is an opportunity to let go of things that are no longer serving you.
Because of the high energy and tension which is involved with this full moon, emotions will be stressed and in no uncertain terms you are able to see what needs to be fixed, changed or updated.
A full Moon means in astrological terms that the Moon is opposite the Sun and always represents endings. It’s also a time when your emotions rise to the surface. You can also expect to begin seeing things in a new kind of way.
With the full moon in cancer it’s time to have a closer look at the status of our home and family. Psychologically cancer represents the divine feminine energy. The nurturing, emotional, sensitive part of who we are.
Our emotions play an important role this full moon. In our society we are trained to think logically, connecting the dots on a mental level. This moon asks us to feel rather than to think. And in my opinion life is richer because of what we feel, whether it’s passion, love, joy, excitement, sadness, regret or fear. Take notice how you nurtured yourself in the past. How well are you taking care of yourself? Are you really listening to your feelings? Are you eating healthy or at least are you feeding yourself with food that your body loves? Are you exercising on a regular basis?
It’s a perfect day to evaluate where you are in your life at this moment. Count your blessings, be grateful and finetune where you feel you need to adjust something in your life.
This full moon deals with the polarity of Capricorn. It’s about balance between your private life, taking care of yourself and your public life, like your career, reputation and accountability.
This full moon, you will be given the gift of sight. Not to see how things might unfold in the future but to see where you are in your life, right now. It is about evaluating and finding a (new) balance between your career and ambitions and taking care of yourself.
The tension of the Grand Cross will intensify your emotions. Don’t walk away from it, this is your window of opportunity to grow and create more balance and therefore ease in your life.
Questions to ponder on this full Moon.
- How can I maximize the results I have today? Where do I need to adjust it here and there?

- What are the returning lessons in my life regarding self-love and nurturing and the balance between my private life and my career?
