The Full Moon in sensitive Cancer on January 8, 2012 at 11:30 p.m. (PST) is a reminder to attend to our feelings. The opposing Sun in dutiful Capricorn sometimes hardens us to our inner needs in order to meet our obligations. Yet this lunation touches us deeply, even spurring crises of insecurity if we're not taking care of ourselves. Establishing a healthy routine with a balance between work and personal matters is essential now.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Domestic matters may demand attention with this emotional Full Moon in your 4th House of Roots. Unmet needs among family members or your own hunger for tender, loving care could trigger crises on the home front. Taking time to care for yourself and those closest to you is required to maintain equilibrium and the sense of safety you need to meet your other obligations.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Conversations can become overheated by emotions with this sensitive Full Moon in your 3rd House of Communication. It's easy for a minor annoyance to feel like a major issue with this dramatic event. While it's healthy to vent, it's essential that you take corrective action to address the needs you're discussing rather than simply complaining or feeling like you're a victim of circumstances.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Taking a more cautious approach to financial matters is a good idea with this security-conscious Cancer Full Moon in your 2nd House of Resources. A longer term view of income and use of your talents should cut down on distractions and enable you to focus your time and energy where it will do you the most good. Avoid major expenses unless they're absolutely essential now.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
This Full Moon in your sign can put you in the spotlight. Attention may come from your warm and outgoing personality or because of how emotional you're feeling at this time. Insecurities might seem to grow if you're not in a settled situation. Don't allow the drama of the moment to overwhelm you. Step back, breathe deeply and then start taking practical steps to regain control.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
This Full Moon falls in your 12th House of Spirituality, where it can inspire your dreams and enhance your faith. It is possible, though, that you could feel you're dealing with emotions or people you can't control. Finding a safe outlet for your feelings is a healthier way to go than shutting them down completely or making the situation seem even more dramatic than it is.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Caring for friends and colleagues may require more time and attention with this needy Full Moon in your 11th House of Groups. Ideally, though, this can inspire a new sense of belonging if you're on a supportive team. Bringing more passion to what you do is a great way to channel the excess emotion spurred by this event. Don't be shy about letting your feelings show more openly.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
A professional breakthrough is possible with this emotional Full Moon in Cancer in your 10th House of Career. If you're carrying too much responsibility or you're uncertain about employment, strong feelings can overcome your sense of reason. But if you're passionate about your job, this lunation could put you in the spotlight with increased attention and even more responsibilities.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
This emotional Cancer Full Moon in your 9th House of Travel and Education highlights learning and faraway places. Crises in education while on the road or dealing with individuals in distant locations are possible. However, if you're passionate about your beliefs, you may find opportunities to express them publicly and to back them up by working as an effective part of a team.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Relationship issues can come to a head with this emotional Full Moon in your 8th House of Deep Sharing. Tenderness is required to maintain the trust of someone close to you. If you're single and looking, a willingness to show your vulnerability can actually make you more desirable to others. Sharing your feelings in a real way is risky, but it can help overcome obstacles to intimacy.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
The emotional Full Moon lands in your 7th House of Partners, bringing delicate issues to the surface in personal and professional relationships. Coming from your heart is more important than letting your mind dominate your decisions now. Don't worry about petty details because this is a time when earning trust and deepening connections requires tenderness and understanding.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Managing your work life and your daily routine is more than a matter of reason now. This sensitive Full Moon lands in your 6th House of Employment and Service, charging up feelings about your job and usual tasks. It's a reminder to take care of yourself, both emotionally and physically. Acknowledging your inner needs is required to continue taking care of business effectively.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
There's a bit of playfulness in this Full Moon because it falls in your 5th House of Creativity and Play. Letting your imagination go isn't hard for you and could be especially interesting now. Romantic feelings are aroused easily as emotion overcomes reason. Channeling your feelings with a purpose makes you a powerful performer who evokes strong responses in others.
