It’s a Full Moon week, Earthlings!

Last week we said goodbye to 2019, and hello to the first official full week of 2020! By the end of this week, you will be 12 days into the new year and ready to provide a fully informed opinion on how you think it’s going to go for you. Is it as exciting as you hoped it would be when you put 2019 behind you? Is it even more so? Is it beyond your wildest dreams? Is life exactly the same and that’s just as exciting to you?

It doesn’t matter what is making you happy right now, friends, or what isn’t, fresh energy for new beginnings is still around every corner right now. It may feel like a chunk of 2020 is already behind you, but it’s not. There’s a whole lot of year left to make new beginnings, and you can still make them all the way up to the last day of this year if you want.

New beginnings can happen any time in your life, and any day of the year. Reboot these solar eclipse rituals that you tried out for the New Moon that will complete a cycle with this week’s Full Moon in Cancer. And if you haven’t tried them out yet, it’s not too late to do so.

The Full Moon zone begins on January 8 this week and will end on January 12. So you have Full Moon energy to wish on for almost the entire week. On January 10 the Full Moon energy will peak with the Full Moon in Cancer. You are likely going to be feeling some exciting nostalgia and tides of the Moon under this nurturing first Full Moon of 2020.

Cancer also rules female experiences and matters, maternal instincts, and even food. So if you haven’t found your happy place yet this year by the time that Full Moon in Cancer arrives on January 10, then wrap yourself up in a big January sweater and find a bowl of comfort food to get lost in.

And if the very word “resolutions” freaks you out, then don’t do it. Just keep focusing on the beautiful ebb and flow of the Universe’s love and harmony, and you’ll wrap up this week’s Full Moon zone in a beautiful 2020 bow. Stay on top of those Daily Horoscopes so you know what to expect during this week’s emotional roller coaster.

Make those Full Moon wishes count this week, friends! What will your Full Moon wishes be?
