 A bewitchment for January:

1st New Years Day

 

2nd 1:24 pm Super Full Moon in Cancer

Sensitive Soul

The Full Moon illuminates the beginning of the New Year, in the sign of Cancer, shinning brightly on her orbit pass Earth. The sign of the Crab calls to the depth of the heart, unleashing an emotional experience, that may well feel, as vast as the ocean. So swim gently and protect your sensitive soul.

The themes of relationships, family, home and values are bewitched under this Moon, so it is important to go with the heart, with the flow of other’s hearts too, and to trust. Divine guidance will then imbue these areas of life with deeper meaning and mysticism. This magickal opportunity is made even more potent by the Full Moon’s favourable astrological trines with Jupiter, Mars and Neptune. Each of these planets, is also in a water sign intensifying the mystical theme of feelings and connections.

This Cancer Moon calls us to surrender, to embrace all the pain, love and madness of the heart and to own all these emotions, in the stillness of trust and the thrill of mystery.

So climb into the shell of the Crab and fill your heart with dreams, allow the magnetic Moon to take you into the ocean of your soul, and there, find your treasure.

Happy New Year: Danae the Spellbox Witch
