━═★ Full Moon Blessings ★═━
The Full Moon in Cancer on 12th January 2017 (9:33 pm, Brisbane Time) deals with the balance between your private life and your public life. It will particularly affect those who have Cancer, Aries, Libra or Capricorn in their natal chart. Those who are water signs will also feel this keenly.
Full Moons are energetically connected to the previous New Moon’s goals, dreams and plans. What did you put into motion two weeks ago? This full moon brings an opportunity to harvest what was sown.
━═★ What does that mean for you? ★═━
For those who may remember the TV show “Happy Days”, the energy of this Full Moon is like Potsie by telling you to “Sit On It”. So, just what are you sitting on? How balanced is your work/life balance. It’s even asking you to go further – what is your virtual/physical social life balance? What ARE you depending on for validation, confirmation and support?
Take notice of those problems/challenges which you are ‘sitting on’- now is a great time to balance your control. As the Serenity Prayer says, knowing the difference between what can be changed and what cannot be changed, is the province of wisdom. Allow yourself to be wise and SEE what can be changed for your benefit and for the benefit of all concerned.
You may feel the urge to cleanse, clear and rearrange your desk, your house and your life as this full moon culminates. It will also bring up characteristics of mothering – now if your Mum was, and is, a stellar influence in your life, then you can breathe a sigh of relief. Hopefully, you will reflect the nurturing side of the Great Mother’s personality. However, there is also the other side of the coin – that smothering side of the Great Mother – which desires control, control and MORE control. Please be watchful of how this energy is coming up in your own life.
As Cancer is a water sign ruled by the Moon, be particularly observant of your own water intake over these three days. Your emotions will be at bursting point as they swell to meet the tidal effect of this lunar event. The key is to express and to communicate – whether it be to your closest friend, partner or journal.
You may also be feeling the weight of your roles and responsibilities at this time – adulting is just SO hard, right? Get the ‘jobs’ done and then give yourself permission to have a rest and relax. This is a superb opportunity for that bubble bath or for a visit to the beach, lake or creek.. heck, even a shower will do!
Most of all, take a moment to go outside and to not only look at the Moon, but to see it. As the closest astral influence in the sky, it affects your emotions and your desire to be seen and be heard. Being the tyrant and bulldozing your way, will only erode your defences and leave you feeling washed out. Going with the flow while maintain your integrity is a much better choice (and makes adulting just that little bit easier).
Ps. Whatever you are sitting on – those words/feelings just aching to be expressed – will find a way to be expressed SOMEHOW. So please remember.. sitting can become another word with the simple addition of a ‘h’.. you know which word I mean- and that can become really, really messy.
━═★ Appropriate Cleansing Ceremony/Ritual ★═━
Cleansing your home is a great way of balancing and clearing the energies within your home. This ceremony is beneficial at ANY full moon but in particular it works well with the domestic energy of the Cancer Full Moon – it’s like Feng Shui without having to move stuff around.
What you need: An appropriate smudging incense bundle/stick – you may choose white sage, sai flora, sandalwood, sweet grass, frankincense or eucalyptus leaves.
What you do:
- Try to declutter/tidy up your home
- Open windows/doors (where safe to do so) to allow the moonlight and air inside.
- Starting in the kitchen (the heart/centre of your home), light your incense bundle/stick. Waft the smoke into the corners of the room, around windowsills and doors. (Please watch for sparks and embers from your incense!)
- As you smudge, you may wish to say a little prayer to set your intention
With this smudge and my intention
Balance everything in each direction
Releasing the old, I welcome the new
Bring light and laughter all month through.
- Complete the smudging and prayer in each room of your home (don’t forget the garage and hallways).
- When you are finished, place the bundle/stick into a bowl of sand to extinguish it safely.
- Return to the kitchen and spend a minute or two just being grateful and quiet. You may wish to recite the Cancerian Moon of Dreaming poem below.
━═★ Cancer Moon of Dreaming ★═━

Sing to me. Soothe my anxiety and worrying.
Strengthen me. For hearth, home and family
Protect them well. So mote it be.
━═★ Suitable Crystals for Gridding ★═━
If you are gridding, suitable crystals to work with this Full Moon include: calcite, carnelian, rainbow moonstone, rhodizite, rose quartz, ruby, amber, chalcedony, emerald, aventurine. Rare crystals include: brookite, natrolite and tinaksite.
━═★ Cancer Full Moon Magick ★═━
When the Moon is in Cancer, you may observe people, projects and places require extra support and nurturing. This is the most fertile sign of the Zodiac as Cancer Moon embodies the Mother aspect of the Goddess. Be aware of whether the energy is smothering or mothering – one reduces energy and the other expands. Particularly beneficial for all forms of Kitchen and Garden witchcraft, this is a perfect time to buy or bless any magickal tools involving cauldrons, chalices or other objects you associate with Water.
The Cancer Full Moon is beneficial for magick concerning:
- Forming new habits, homes and bringing stability to lifestyle choices
- Cleansing and clearing rituals
- Home and vehicle blessings
- Taking stock of the ‘wealth’ you have in your life
- Releasing inappropriate habits and defences
- Encouraging confidence
- Honouring all mothers.
