As the AstroTwins previously wrote for mbg, Cancer itself is ruled by the moon, so a Cancer full moon will indeed feel extra intense. To that end, they say, it represents the waters of the womb, and so water rituals would be a fitting way to embody this energy. “Take a bubble bath, honor the women in your life, and most importantly, nurture yourself,” they add.
And speaking of bubble baths, you could take it a step further and use your bath to connect with the water element and the moon even further. “Connect with lunar energy by submerging yourself in water, draw a healing bath around the time of the full moon, and gather your favorite salts, crystals, and candles,” the twins suggest.
As you bathe, they recommend saying your full moon intentions aloud while you’re relaxing in the tub, and visualizing the full moon restoring every cell of your body. And don’t forget to make some moon water if that’s something you’re into!
Lastly, as one of the potentially loneliest full moons of the year, the twins note that January’s full moon, also known as the “Wolf Moon,” is a great time to “hang out with your own ‘wolf pack’ and let out a collective howl.” (Full moon circle, anyone?)
