Cold moon in Cancer: an emotional closing of 2020
The so-called Cold Moon is the last full moon of the year. It is known by that name because it is the closest to the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere. That is why it is also called the Moon of the Long Night. This year, the cold moon is in Cancer, and invites us to close the year in full connection with our emotions, healing bonds and building a home wherever we are.
The cold moon and the solar eclipse
This year’s cold moon is the one that follows the total solar eclipse, on December 14. This eclipse occurs in the 23rd degree of Sagittarius, and it will begin to mobilize many energies that we have been accumulating.
The full moons always represent a closure.
Coming to the end of a difficult year for everyone, this eclipse is a great opportunity to refine what we have been carrying and make room for new things. In some sense, it will feel like a stage closure, like a rebirth.
This feeling will intensify with the cold moon of December 30th. The full moons always represent a closure: it is time to reap the intentions that we have sown 6 months ago, on the new moon that in 2020 was on July 20.
The cold moon invites us, then, to take stock of what was the last half of the year. It’s a great time to look back and see all that we have accomplished so far. We will surely discover that we have achieved things that seemed impossible. It invites us to rest and enjoy all that we have achieved.
Full moon in Cancer: how it will affect your energy
This year the cold moon sets in Cancer, which tells us that a large part of our energy will be placed on the emotional, in the home and the family. Considering that it falls just before the end of the year celebration, surely its energy will connect us with the family, in a broad sense. It is a good time to look around and wonder with whom we are building a home: with whom we truly feel at home, wherever we are.
The energy of this moon invites us to enjoy those spaces in body and soul and leave behind the places that we inhabit from discomfort. They will be days of enjoying ours as never before, of the truly important people in our lives.
In this sense, the full moon on December 30th speaks of sharing: sharing life, experiences and everything that moves us with people who are willing to receive them and share their own.
Of course: the feelings will be on the surface, and it is likely that we will feel the weight of everything that we have been carrying during the year manifests itself. Not to despair. During these days it will be essential not to fight with our emotions, but to let them be. In a way, it is a kind of purification that will allow us to face the new year from another perspective.
It will be important to listen to the body, rest and hold on to the affection of our environment. And above all, take it easy. The best is yet to come!
