Full Moon in Cancer
Full Wolf Moon
January 12, 2017
We begin our new year with an emotional full moon which will seep through our hearts to end the old and begin the new. On January 12, 2017, at approximately 6:35 am EST and 3:35 pm PST we will have a full moon in Cancer orbiting at 22 degrees based upon 6 degrees plus or minus depending upon the orb.
This magnificent moon is also known as Wolf Moon or moon after Yule. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the Full Wolf Moon was named after the packs of wolfs that roomed the Indian villages in dead winter; and some referred to it as a moon after Yule which basically means the old moon or a moon that starts the New Year.
By now Mercury is direct, communication has gotten better, and the slow pace may have allowed all of us to reflect back on the past year and look at what we want to change, more so than what we are willing to accept. However, as Mercury enters Sagittarius we are still searching for the truth, and Neptune in Aquarius may make it difficult to really know what the truth is. However, this may be a short transit as Mercury focuses on money aspect when it aspects Capricorn the following day. But be careful it’s not really over until January 27, 2017 (read about it here).
The full moon gives a signal for us to understand the meaning and purpose given to a structure, and to discover what it means to live for a reason. It is as powerful as everything the moon stands for. This moon rules areas of people, dreams, and karmic memories. Domestic issues will consume most of us during the full moon in Cancer. Sentiments and past memories will draw us to people from our past. These sentiments exist on a karmic level allowing us the opportunity to go backwards and retrieve things, and people, from our past; in many cases, we thought we had let go of these things, only to find out that we actually had not.
Often, dumb words or actions separated us from them, but with a little effort, humility, and humble pie, the heart can heal and be made right again. It is a time to reveal sentiments, perhaps very deep ones that have remained unspoken for a very long time; to apologize if needed and in general, be more kind and nonjudgmental. Because at the end of the day it will be us that may repent for reconnecting, with the mix of mercury and the full moon our expectations may be confusing, emotional and we may not see completely clear (read more about it here). Just in time for the eclipses which could cause more issues.
A full moon in Cancer is also a time of compulsion for many. This is especially true if they cannot connect with a person or persons from the past. Binges are likely to happen; such as drinking, chocolate, ice cream, and even sexual liaisons, all of which will be regretted later.
The moon in Cancer brings encouragement, emotions, compassion, imagination, and maudlin issues in our lives. The Watery Cancer Moon brings up memories of childhood, warm motherly arms, and tender touches for loved ones. Our hearts swirl in a sea of ancient imagery…. watch out for crabbiness! You may be become touchy, emotionally, and need to hide in your shell at times. You may be a strong defender of family and tradition. Although your temperaments may become changeable, people will come to you readily for nurturing and care. You look to a wise and older person for protection and nurturing. Care needs to be taken to avoid hurting the feelings of others as well as having your own feelings hurt.
Since Cancer is ruled by the moon, lunar influences are strongest and most easily expressed when focused through this sign. The moon greatly influences personality, the subconscious, and the emotions, while also molding instinctual behavior.
When the Moon is in Cancer, it is a time of tense emotions and great sensitivity with people responding through emotions rather than reason. During this very revered period be cautious not to emotionally wound others or allow yourself to be wounded. Generally, people will be passive, easy-going, sentimental, loving, and nurturing.
Unfortunately, this motherly expression of caring is often expressed with food and it is easy to overeat. Cancer is a nurturing sign and the most fertile sign of the zodiac. With the moon in Cancer, it is a good time for creating life and for growth.
Moon in Cancer represents fostering, expressive, responsive, creative, and sentimental. It is my suggestion that you purchase a pink candle and carve your name, and the name of your loved one, through to the wick. Anoint the candle with lavender oil or inspiration oil and chant Psalm 70. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle.
Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is dependent upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding a satisfying relationship with another person, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but are a powerful source of energy.
To start the year in a positive note I will be posting two mantras one easy and short mantra one for more advanced and powerful mantra (the more advance mantra is only recommended for those that can pronounce the words properly)
The mantra for Cancerian moon is:
“Om Aing Kleeng Shreeng”
(Ommm Aiiiiing Kleeeng Sheeeng)
(Breathe in from your mouth while saying OM breathe out from your nose while finishing the vowel, repeat all. You will realize that each word will affect your lips, tongue, ears etc)
Om Shram Shrim Shraum Sah Chandraya Naham
Om, and salutation to the creative abundance that is the very form of the universe.
This mantra opens the universal forces in your life and allows the righteous changes to occur.
With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmations, even if there is the slightest change, and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle.
Remember, never make the affirmations beginning with “I feel the…” instead, “I protect, save and nourish, assimilate all of life’s emotions, and have a desire to connect to the source of subconscious and be reserved and quiet”.
Many people have asked the question how often they should have a reading done by a Vedic psychic or a Vedic reader. In my opinion an in-depth reading should be done every moon cycle. Since, every moon cycle represents a change; it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well. Of course, we all have burning questions every now and then and it may be necessary to have a reading done more often, but sometime we have to let universe take its course.
When dealing with a tragic situation it is my suggestion that before you have a reading done you must clear away negativity and fear from your emotions so that a reader can give you the clearest reading possible. Remember, every psychic bases their telephone readings on your energy. So remember to ask guidance from the higher power before having a reading so that you can be neutral with your energy. The clearest answers can be given when energy is at a neutral point. Never get a reading when your energy is scattered because you may not receive the best reading possible.
Always remember that every reader has their boundaries as to how far in the future they want to read. This is their choice; however, reading beyond 6 months is a very hazy situation. Our free will plays an important role in our destiny and we are able to change anything. This is the main reason why many readers do not go beyond the 3-6 month mark.

I like to use my gift as a gift not a part of anyone’s obsession, therefore, 5 days before this moon January 07, 2017 through 5 days after January 17, 2017. There could be many obsessive tendencies, nervous energies, and I recommend to remain calm as it is not a good time to make emotional moves.
May this wonderful full moon bring joy and emotions to your lives and to those who are closest to you. Always remember, when one door closes another opens – always.
