On January 17, the full wolf moon in Cancer will arrive, bringing with it a major surge in emotional energy. During this time, we are going to be pushed deep into our emotions, and the energy will affect all of us a little differently, depending on our zodiac sign.

The January full moon is called the wolf moon, because of how loudly the wolves howl during this time. The name was given to the moon by Native American cultures, according to the Almanac. During each full moon, we are given a new opportunity to touch base with our intuition and manifest a new step towards our growth.

With that being said, each full moon is additionally influenced by the zodiac sign it falls under, with this particular moon being influenced by the emotionally driven energy of Cancer. This is how it will affect you, based on your zodiac sign.


While you tend to try to steer away from the emotional side of things and focus on the logistics, to move from point A to point B, during this time you will feel pushed to finally touch base with your emotional side. During this time, you will be given a new opportunity to take solace in the simplicity of life and reconnect with the ones you love most- take it.


You tend to be a creature of comfort, but during this time, you are going to have a lot going on, making you feel chaotic and overwhelmed. While it’s good to stay busy, it’s also okay to slow down and take a breath.


You are going to have your money on your mind in a major way during this lunation. And there is nothing wrong with that, however, make sure that you don’t get so caught up in trying to obtain money, that you forget to appreciate what you have.


Since this full moon is falling under your sign, you are going to be feeling pushed to dive deep within and do some self-exploration. Don’t be afraid to take time to yourself, and reevaluate things and meditate for deeper clarity. You will likely be feeling a bit overwhelmed, but that same overwhelm can push you towards deeper clarity.


You are going to be in touch with your intuition like never before during this full moon, bringing you new realizations about circumstances that have been unclear for some time. Be careful not to get overwhelmed with your thoughts, and if need be, take some time to reflect, while allowing new visions to come through.


You tend to stay on the practical side, but this full moon is pushing you past your comfort zone and opening you up to new energy. Don’t be afraid to push yourself forward and open yourself up to new ideas, as those new ideas can help you to achieve your biggest aspirations.


You tend to doubt yourself, and second, guess and then second guess yourself again. During this full moon, you will be feeling more sure of yourself than ever, and there’s no harm in that. This will allow you to trudge through some difficult decisions and find a way through.


This lunation will provide you with the ability to see new solutions to old problems, thus making things much easier on you if you let it. Don’t hesitate to have deep and meaningful conversations with someone you trust most to help your ideas truly come alive.


You will likely be feeling a bit more vulnerable than usual, and some old emotions may re-emerge. Rather than running from these emotions, face them head-on, and in turn, you may find newfound freedom from some old emotional baggage.


This lunation will have you focused on your partnerships and relationships. In turn, you may be striving to find a balance between your desire to be loved and your desire to give love. Take some time to look at your relationships in a new light.


Life can be overwhelming at times, leaving you feeling drained. But, your emotional wellbeing is of the utmost importance, so don’t be afraid to take some time to regroup, you’ve earned it.


You are going to be feeling very romantic and inspired under this full moon, so if you’ve been working on a creative project, take some time under the full moon to let your creativity flow.
