The full moon peaks early in 2018, on the 1st or 2nd of January, depending where in the world you are. [ New York 9.24pm on the 1st January / London 2.24am on the 2nd January ]

The moon will be passing through the sign of Cancer – maternal, motherly and ultra-nurturing.

For those of us recovering from celebrations, the mood of this full moon will be a welcome moment of respite, soothing our busy bodies, minds and souls, which could well be over stimulated and over indulged with excitement and rich food…

The Astrology Of The Cancer Full Moon

Luna will peak at 11º of Cancer, opposite the sun, Venus, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.

They will both harmoniously aspect Neptune at 11º of Pisces (which you can see in the image below – Neptune’s trident in the 5th house).

Sol and lune will also align with Mars, Jupiter, also passing through water sign Scorpio. This is quite the formation of feminine signs (earth and water), creating a beautiful kite in the skies.

Keep in the loop for how this affects your star sign in the Star Sign Style horoscopes, and remember the full moon is a time of heightened emotion and celebration!

With planets occupying all three water signs this full moon could be even moreso emo… An incredible time to get in touch with your subconscious sensitivities and intuition.

Honour the full moon in Cancer with the following beauty rituals.

Because, Beauty Sleep…

I love my beauty sleep. I love, love, love my beauty sleep!

And I get cranky if I don’t get enough shut-eye, and it’s bad for your beauty, dehydrating the skin, creating a dark circles and general puffiness.

It’s a scientific fact that the full moon interrupts the restfulness of our sleep-state so help your body attune to the moon with a relaxing bath, using lavender to soothe the senses.
