How The Jan. 17 Full Moon Will Affect You If You're A Cancer

While everyone's still settling in to the new year and trying to master the art of not accidentally typing 2021 every single time they write the date, the year is in full swing with its second celestial event already upon us. 2022 was kicked off with the magic of a new moon in Capricorn on January 2, 2022 and it seems its already time for the power of the moon to strike again with a full moon taking place on January 17, 2022.

This full moon lands in Cancer, and it represents a time to take pause, reflect on how the year has begun for you, and really take note of what changes you want to put into motion (via StyleCaster). The energy surrounding the days leading up to this full moon are a powerful time to contemplate what moves you want to make next and what aspects of your life no longer serve you. Here's what this first full moon of the year means for you if you're a Cancer.

It's time for emotional Cancers to tap into their hidden emotions

While new moons represent the promise of beginnings, full moons are more concerned with the full picture at the end of the moon cycle (via PopSugar). It's a time to reflect on all that you've accomplished in the past moon cycle and what things have held you back that it might be time to release. During the very first few weeks of the year, this full moon is especially important to reflect on and amend how you're beginning the year. 

Cancers (June 21-July 22) are very in tune with their emotions by default, so your sensitivity is your power (via Co Star). Use this full moon to really tap into your emotions and use the full moon to shine a light and gain clarity on personal truths that you've been avoiding (via Bustle). A new year is an emotional time, take this opportunity to sift through your feelings and attempt to understand them instead of fighting them, this is the only way you'll really be able to release them during this full moon and make space in your life for you to grow this upcoming moon cycle.
