The holidays can be a really challenging, difficult, emotional time for a lot of people, especially those that are lonely and having difficulty in life, particularly with money matters and emotional issues with people. The Full Moon in Cancer can make emotional challenges more intense for some, but for others it can be a time that wakes you up to realizing how important certain relationships are in your life.
With this Full Moon, your feelings will be a strong indicator making it clear what and who you really do or don’t care about.
Cancer is also indicative of one’s roots, ancestry and emotional bonds, especially family, pets and home and in particular the mother figure. This is a good time to get closer to people that matter, like with positive trips down memory lane for that nostalgic feeling.
