The full moon is in Cancer on January 18. Cancer is a water sign which stands for homely atmosphere, motherhood, sisterhood, emotional balance. Feeling acceptance in all that is. That cancer is in the full moon in winter. This brings us back to our own essence. Winter represents the water element. Yin energy and feminine soft power. During this period you can take space for yourself in gentleness. Practicing self-care and self-love. In this blog I tell you more about rituals that you can apply to arrive in your soft power.
The Meaning of the Zodiac Sign Cancer and the Full Moon
Cancerians are emotional types who are naturally very sensitive. They bring softness and grounding to the world in which one can surrender to all that is. The primordial mothers of nature. During the full moon in cancer it is nice to make it cozy at home. Light the candles. Cook tasty and healthy meals. Take care of yourself. Take a warm bath or shower and, if necessary, take a cold shower to feel recharged.
This is the time when you can let go of what no longer serves you. You can let go of everything about emotions, feelings, relationships, projects and any things that no longer serve you. You can do various rituals for this.
Journal your emotions and feelings off your mind & body. Make it a ritual. By consciously meditating on the theme that you want to let go of, you arrive at yourself. In this way you actually create the space to feel what you want to let go of. After that you can start writing freely. Write down everything that comes to your mind in 10-20 minutes. Afterwards you can ritually burn this paper under the full moon.
Do you want support with lunar rituals? Then download the Moon Phase Yin Yoga E-book. This E-book contains information about each moon phase, yin yoga practices and journal assignments. You can use these again every lunar cycle.
Breath & Flow
To prepare for what you want to let go of, you can also participate in the online Full Moon Breath & Flow class on Monday 17 January from 20.00 – 21.15 or watch the replay on the 18th. On January 18, it will be exactly the full moon at 00:51. In this Full Moon Breath & Flow class I take you into a Feminine flow in which you make deep connection with your emotions, feelings and intuition. A soft Yin Flow that lets you take in the energy of the water element. The softness of our feminine power.
Afterwards I will share an intention card with a writing assignment in which you can make space for what you want to let go of and give to the full moon.
Create a sacred space
Earlier in this blog I wrote to make it nice and warm and cozy at home. Light the candles. Create a sacred space. Possibly with an altar on which you can place your gems. Materials that amplify your intention for this full moon.
You can also decide for yourself what you want to let go of material things. What do you no longer need? Will you pass it on to someone else? Are you throwing it away? Clean up your house so that you can flow into spring fresh and tidy. From the soft feminine energy to the masculine awakening power.
