Start 2019 Off Right with the Final Full Moon Spell of the Year
December 22, 2018 at 9:48 am PST is a potent supermoon in the sign of Cancer! Supermoons are powerful catalysts for change in our lives. After the highs and lows of 2018, you’ll focus on your own comfort, stability, family, and peace of mind—all of which this December supermoon will bring. Full moons work to bring the rewards of our efforts to the forefront—any suppressed emotions to the surface—and push us into a place of divine vulnerability. This may sound frightening but what it does is connects you deeper to who you are. There’s no hiding or holding back. You will see, hear, and feel all—and then you’ll be able to make your move clearly and confidently. That’s what this December 2018 supermoon brings!
What Does Cancer Have to Do With It?
The December supermoon falls in Cancer, the sign known for the power of its feelings and sensitivities. Of course, full moons heighten your emotions but with Cancer, this stirs them up even further! You may find yourself feeling tiny bursts of nostalgia, contentment, joy, maybe even sadness… this is all apart of the Cancer full moon’s magic! It’s showing you how certain things and peoples’ vibrations impact you and you’d be wise to listen! If something is making you feel weak—it is time to let it go. Don’t bring that energy into the new year where there are more opportunities for each of us. Feelings of sadness are a signal that there is still healing and mourning that may need to happen. Remember, full moons bring reminders of people or situations you were called to release, and it’s okay to feel a sense of sadness as long as you don’t allow yourself to stew in it.
It’s important to mention that Cancer is one of the cardinal sings of the zodiac—meaning that they lead and bring change through their powerful actions; actions spurred by intuition and emotion! What this means for you is that your intuition and emotions will be signaled and triggered to help you make your own personal power moves! Connect again with how things make you feel to determine where and what you want and need to feel content and secure.
For every sign you will need your own sacred space. Cancer rules the energy of retreat—the gift it is to pull back from the rest of the world to restore yourself, soothe, and implement nonnegotiable self care. This December full moon reconnects you back to that space. If you don’t have one, now is the time to create it or to make an adjustment to your self-care routine!
Major Planetary Influence
Venus (the planet of love, attraction, and beauty) connects beautifully with Neptune (the planet of illusion, healing, and fantasy). What this will work to do is surge “feel good” vibes into the essence of your intention. What you focus on and create during this time will be simply magical, ethereal, and surreal. What do you need to make your home environment more comforting? In your intimate relationships, you should focus on romance, building attraction, and deepening connection. The sun sits in Capricorn supporting the moon and these aspects, which ensures that these feelings and intentions are not fleeting but lasting. Saturn (ruling Capricorn) sextiles Venus in Scorpio—again this creates a bond and connection that has the potential to thrive and last!
