On Friday, there is a  Full Moon in Cancer Lunar Eclipse that has every intention of ruining your New Year mindset, and I think you should let it. Cancer is ruled by the moon, so any Full Moon in Cancer is supercharged, let alone a Full Moon with a Lunar Eclipse. This moon in particular is receiving energetic opposition because we have five planets in Cancer’s opposite sign, Capricorn. While Capricorn has been asking us to manifest our greatest dreams and get to work, Cancer is demanding that the inner work be done first. It might be painful, but it’s a great opportunity to walk into the next stage of life without any pain or baggage you’ve been holding on to. So let this moon mess up your life for a couple of days. Pause to take care of yourself and address any issues you have before they hold you back from your dreams.

Cancer’s Full Moon energy paired with the energy of the eclipse will be emotional and gritty, and it may feel like your deepest feelings are being ripped out of you, demanding to be seen. We often look at healing as this beautiful, peaceful process when in reality, it’s hard painful work to dig through all of our internal wounds and face them. It takes so much more strength to be emotional than it does to repress everything you’re feeling. Give in to it. Reschedule all of your plans, take a day off, dedicate time to self care, whatever you need to do to heal through this huge astrological event.

Below are your Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse in Cancer horoscopes! Read your Sun, Moon, Mars and any other dominant sign in your chart to determine what you should cry about this week.

Taurus: You’re being pulled in a million different directions right now, and this Full Moon Eclipse will feel heavy and distracted. Don’t put pressure on yourself.

Gemini: You have a tendency to intellectualize your emotions instead of feeling them, or you just ignore them all together.

Virgo: Cancer’s Full Moon shines a spotlight on your social circle. You’ll finally acknowledge the red flags, and know who really has your back and who’s been taking advantage of you.
