Happy New Year and Full Moon, astro friends! January 6th, 2023 is an exciting day as we will be under the magical, illuminating light of the Full Moon in Cancer. This Full Moon could bring us some interesting possibilities, especially when it comes to our emotions and relationships. It is a great time to reflect on our lives, to appreciate what we have, and to release the baggages that are no longer serving. We can look at the planets and their positions to gain insights into the energies around us during this special time. Let's connect with the stars and see what the Full Moon in Cancer has in store for us!

The most interesting placement at this time is the Mercury. Mercury is retrograde, almost in the heart of the Sun, called “Cazimi” zone. This is very powerful astrological alignment that offer a unique opportunity to explore and reflect on one's personal growth. These astrological events can provide a space to take stock of where you are in your life, and develop a deeper understanding of your individual mission and purpose. With this newfound insight, you can make positive changes to create a life that is meaningful and purposeful.

However, Mercury being retrograde and combustion, it’s hard to see the surroundings so it can be all about you, and lack of consideration for others. This lack of perspective can create an overstimulated mental atmosphere that can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate. So it’s important to take a step back, listen to the opinions of others, and consider different perspectives to navigating the energy of Mercury retrograde and the under the ray of the Sun.

You can expect a boost of energy and creativity with Sun-Mercury trine Uranus in Taurus. This planetary alignment can help us break through mental barriers, allowing us to access our innermost core and make meaningful connections with others that are real and authentic. With Uranus providing strong support, you can use this time to seek your highest potential. With Moon sextile Uranus, trine Neptune, we have the opportunity to tap into our intuition and inner wisdom. This cosmic alignment is helping us to access the higher aspects of ourselves, enabling us to move beyond our daily, mundane concerns and connect with a higher spiritual realm. Through this period, our intuition can be seen as the highest and most reliable guide, leading us to the answers we seek and the fulfillment we desire. So take a moment to pause, listen to your inner knowing, and trust that you have the guidance you need.

With Venus having just entered Aquarius, we can expect to see an increase in our social circles, as Aquarius is a sign associated with friendship and community. This is a great time to look outward and connect with others. The sextile to Jupiter in Aries further suggests that it's a good time to be ambitious and take on new projects. Aries is associated with innovation and risk-taking, so use this energy to try something new and exciting. Finally, the trine to Mars Rx in Gemini encourages us to take our time and think through our decisions. Usually, Mars in Gemini is associated with taking fast, decisive action. However, when it is in retrograde, it encourages us to slow down and think through all of our available options before committing to any major decisions.

However, this Mars is turning direct on January 12th, we can expect some positive forward movement in the areas it influences. You would be able to move forward and bring clarity to the areas that have been feeling stuck and unclear for sometime. Let's use this time to focus on our goals and make the most of our passion and enthusiasm. Plus, with the New Moon on the 21st, we can use this time for setting intentions and manifesting our dreams. Let's start off the new year in the right foot and make this the most magnificent year ever!
