January 2018 provides a number of extraordinary astrological events. Tonight’s SuperMoon (A SuperMoon or Perigee is when the Moon is closest to earth, making it look larger than normal and providing greater luminance or brightness) is one of the two SuperMoons this month. A Blue Moon (Blue Moons are extra full moon in a month) and a total lunar eclipse (the first one in the last 150 years). The current Full Moon is in the sign of Cancer or the Wolf Moon as it is known to some Native American cultures
Cancer, in astrology, governs issues important the Moon; nursing, nurturing, home, emotions and sentiments. A highly intuitive sign, Cancer Also rules over psychic phenomena and concerns making them very prescient. At their best, Cancers are adaptive, dependable and caring. At their worse, they are moody, smothering and possessive
The Moon, as a planet in astrology, is concerned with physical and emotional needs such as food, security, and emotional support. It is the Rulership or the ruling planet of the sign of Cancer
When planets connect with a sign it has “Rulership” over, it strengths the effects of that sign, meaning you may feel its effect much stronger. So with the Moon’s entry into Cancer, you may require more food, the need to be in a familiar, comfortable environment, the avoidance stress and confrontation and so on.
Full moons lend their waxing energies to endeavors and activities, making them good times to start businesses, projects and emotional commitments. With Moon at its strongest placement, this is a good time for planning and preparations for the coming year. Because of the doubling effect of the Moon (the Moon is responsible for psychic phenomena), this is also an ideal time for divinations or psychic readings, as such energies will be greatly enhanced. The caveat is that this is also an intensely, emotional transit, so you should be to ready to engage in activities that offer grounding, calming influence.
