Our First Full Moon of 2018 Is A SUPERMOON And It Happens On The First Of The Year!

Happy New Years Eve!

What a way to get out the gates straight into 2018!

Tomorrow, 1/1 as of 9:24 PM EST- we have a Full Moon in the maternal and very emotional and intuitive sign of the crab- Cancer.

January is normally a dreary month due to the increased darkness and coldness.

This January, however, is special due to tomorrows Full Moon which is a Supermoon, and then on 1/31 we have another Lunar Eclipse/ Super Blue Moon in Leo that will really be intense energetically.

Due to the lunar activity of January, the night sky will really be illuminated!  Doesn’t sound so bad, does it?

Full Moons happen when the Sun is opposite the Moon.

This highlights the polarities (opposing forces), in our lives.

These polarities are of an emotional, physical and spiritual nature.  It can be one area or all three, and each Full Moon will feel different based on the sign and planetary aspects surrounding the Moon.

Awareness and emotion reach their peak and are heightened around Full Moons.  This is why we feel more edgy and anxious around these times, sometimes not even being able to sleep.

Lunar energy is wild, after all!

So what does it mean that this is a ‘Supermoon’?

Below from

A supermoon happens when the full moon coincides with the moon’s closest approach to Earth in its orbit. Supermoons make the moon appear a little brighter and closer than normal, although the difference is hard to spot with the naked eye. The last supermoon (the only one of 2017) happened on Dec. 3.

It kicked off a trilogy of consecutive supermoons; the next ones happen on Jan. 1 and Jan. 31. The Jan. 31 supermoon will also coincide with a lunar eclipse best visible in the western United States, the Pacific and eastern Asia.

The term “supermoon” has only been used in the past 40 years, but it received a slew of attention in late 2016 when three super moons occurred in a row. The supermoon of November 2016 was also the closest supermoon in 69 years, although a closer super moon will rise in the 2030s

It’s pretty neat, and the energy is definitely emotionally charged!

*This Moon is also referred to as ‘Wolf Moon’ as it is said that if you listen closely at night, you will hear Wolves howling and communicating with each other at this time of year.

Wolves are a very powerful and spiritual animal totem.  They are very intuitive as they rely solely on their senses to get them where they need to be, feeling their way through the darkness and stillness.

The themes of this Full Supermoon in Cancer are love, forgiveness and where we lay our head at night-our home life.

The sign of Cancer is the sign ruled by the Moon naturally, meaning that the Moon is quite cozy when in this sign.

As the Moon rules our emotional nature and the Crab (Cancer) is highly emotional and under the element of Water- this time is particularly delicate and sensitive.  It’s basically a double-dose of heart-felt emotion.

Cancer also rules the 4th house in astrology which represents our foundation, our home, our security.  Our emotional foundation.

Expect these areas to be illuminated under this Full Moon energy.

This a very emotionally charged time as I mentioned above, so take this sensitivity and channel it wisely.

Keep in mind that Full Moons can leave us feeling a bit confused as polarities are highlighted, and we often do not feel clear about which way to go, which direction to take.  Helping us along is the fact that Cancer is a cardinal sign- an initiator.  Although this sign relies heavily on intuition (water), this sign also acts when it’s time (cardinal).

Trust that this Full Moon will guide you in the right direction, as long as you follow the whispers of your soul.

Along with this Full Supermoon, we have a grand-trine (meaning, fortunate and auspicious) aspect with Neptune, Mars and Jupiter.  This all points to abundance and good will- nice!

Despite the particular situation- the light of the Moon will shine down some positive rays of light and opportunity for everyone.  

Due to the Neptune aspects with this Moon and the already intuitive sign of Cancer- psychic impressions are off. the. chart.

Dreams are much more vivid and prophetic.  Telepathy and ESP is enhanced, even for the non-believers out there.

We all have telepathy on some level, but not everyone taps into it- remember, we are all simply energy.

Keep in mind that Mercury, our planet of communication-  has just gone direct and due to some not-so-cozy aspects between this Moon and Mercury  I would still be cautious when communicating with those nearest and dearest.  Remember- emotions are super high right now and the potential to be misunderstood is great!

Make sure to reflect upon your part in any relationship/issue whether it be romantic, business, family, etc.  Think before you speak.  Check yourself.  Sometimes we are the problem!  

Under this energy, you may also find yourself wanting to declutter, to purge.  Perfection!  What better time than now- the kick-off to a new year?  Clean out your closets, throw away or donate those items you are not using, clean out your vehicle, do a dietary cleanse, detox.  You will feel so much lighter!

11:11 And Its Importance With This Full Moon

As I have mentioned in earlier posts, in numerology 2018 is a Universal ’11’ year- 11 being a master number.

The themes of 2018 are spirituality, magical and transcendental learning & growth.

11 is magic.

Also important to mention is that this Full Supermoon occurs at 11 degrees of Cancer, and also opposite of the Sun which is at 11 degrees of  Capricorn.  11:11 yet again!

Yes, the energy and magic of ’11’ will be ever- so -present this year.

What does this all mean?  That overall, 2018 is primed to be a year of magic and tremendous growth.  But not without using our powers of creation.

You cannot sit back and just ‘expect’ abundance to come your way.  You have to be an active participant in this game we call life.  You have to co-create your own reality, manifest.

Enjoy the magic of this SUPERMOON in Cancer.

Tap into your intuitive juices and go within.  Get creative and use this time to truly release what no longer serves you, and to create the magic you desire for 2018.  This supermoon sets the tone for the year ahead and is really all about ‘out with the old and in with the new’.

Go ahead and release all which is not constructive to you and your growth.  People, patterns, behaviors and habits that no longer serve you.  Drop the rubbish.  Leave 2017 behind and manifest what you desire for 2018.

Live by this mantra going forward

If it don’t evolve me it don’t involve me

Here’s a little Full Moon release to get you started.  Add your own to it, and also be sure to add that which you wish to manifest!

Happy New Year!  May it be filled with nothing but peace, love, light, magic and growth.
