Astro PSA: Full Moon in Cancer

Most of us are spending this week between Christmas and New Years in our PJs, and tonight’s full moon in its home sign of homebody Cancer supports this impulse. But Capricorn season is always about reality checks, and with both the Sun and Moon conjuncting Chiron, the Wounded Healer, don’t be surprised if issues around intimacy and domestic stability come up to be healed. Honor whatever discordance you experience, because this last full moon of a truly heartbreaking year is here to help us release our impediments to true compassion and peace. So howl your heartbreaks at the moon, drop them in the water, maybe even burn them on a piece of a paper. All that matters is you make room for bigger and better love because that’s how we’re all going to heal in the year to come. As Alice Walker says: The way forward is with a broken heart.

"All, everything I understand, I understand only because I love."
― Leo Tolstoy
