There is a little extra magic in the air the Christmas Day with a Full Moon in Cancer on Dec. 25. The last time a Full Moon occurred on Christmas was 1977; it won’t happen again until 2034.
The ancients considered the Full Moon after the Winter Solstice the strongest one of the year. The Moon is the planet ruler for Cancer, so the Moon has extra strength when it is at home in its own sign.
A Cancer Moon honors traditions, as well as the cycle of the ebb and flow of life. It’s easy to be optimistic and grateful when things are going well. But we need to honor both the highs and the lows of life experience, since each has its own lesson. The holidays certainly bring plenty of opportunities to practice going with the flow.
Make resolutions to nurture YOURSELF
Nurturing and self care are also connected to the Zodiac sign of Cancer.
The more you nurture and take care of yourself, the more energy you have available to take care of others in a healthy way. What commitment can you make to take better care of yourself this year on all levels: emotionally, physically, mentally or spiritually?
- create healthy boundaries with people, projects and plans
- get bodywork or massage
- be sure to eat nurturing and supportive foods for your system
- take the time and space to acknowledge the presence of spirit in your life.
This Full Moon is exact on Friday, Dec. 25, at 6:11 a.m. EST.
Full Moons are a time to celebrate, release and open. Read more on the Christmas Full Moon here
