Happy New Year!


2018 greets us with a bright and juicy Cancer Full Moon that promises to bring emotional balance where it is needed. Cancer the sign of Home, Hearth and Family, governs the taproot that links us back to our ancestors. Classically, Cancer is the deepest part of our chart that we like to protect with the Crab's hard crusty shell. We're highly sensitive under this Full Moon as it illuminates the part of our lives that seeks to be nurtured while also fiercely defending nostalgic familial memories.

Cancer is the opposing and balancing sign to Capricorn, the sign where the Sun, Venus and Saturn have all been working hard together to get you to achieve your ambitions. Let this Cancer Full Moon pull you back to be balanced, nourished, and taken care of so that you'll have the energy to continue climbing your particular Saturn in Capricorn mountain.

Aries

Go home, Aries! That's right, close your laptop, or whatever work project you happened to bring home over the holidays. While you've found yourself mainly focused on your reputation and career ambitions, this Full Moon is bringing the focus back home. Time spent with family, close friends, or alone in your pajamas will recharge your batteries so that you can continue your ambitious mountain climb towards success.

Taurus

You may want to make a few dates to hang out around the neighborhood, Taurus. Your mind has been focused on refining a new world view and seeing the bigger picture, but the Full Moon in Cancer wants to you invest some quality time around the way. Chat with your siblings or close relatives, absorb, and reflect upon new ideas and see what may fit into your burgeoning philosophies. You never know, a seemingly random conversation or encounter may be filled with meaningful wisdom.

Gemini

Check in with your values and assets, Gemini. After spending time over the last weeks becoming more intimate with others, this Full Moon wants to illuminate what you have to put on the table. What's of importance to you, Gemini? What do you need take care of in order to feel emotionally secure and steady on your feet? You may see a fluctuation in money matters, especially concerning areas of shared resources, where you may want to, or be forced to, take a better look at how you've been doing.

Cancer

The Moon is most at home in your sign, and you're usually completely in tune with her highly changeable emotion nature. This Full Moon is a powerful restart for you, illuminating all the ways you can nurture and take care of YOURSELF. When's the last time you had a good cry, cooked a hot meal, or took a long bath. Focusing on your needs first is a good kind of selfish, in doing so it makes it easier to do the relationship work with others without burning out. Pamper yourself Little Crab, let Mother Moon guide you back home to yourself.

Leo

Allow this Full Moon to bring you deep into your inner imaginative world. The best way to balance out all your efforts to create better health and harness your skills is to drift in the unseen world. Devote some energy towards meditation, prayer, visioning, and daydreaming to keep you going on your path towards holistic health and wellbeing. Emotionally connect with the sense of well-being you'd like to experience, then work towards it daily.

Virgo

This Full Moon is highlighting the need for you to go out and socialize with some like-minded friends. Whatever you've been getting up to during your playtime - for example, creative endeavors - is asking to be shared with others so you can feel the emotional fulfillment that comes with sharing your gifts with those who share common interests and visions. Your family and friends can't wait to nurture your talents.

Libra

With so much emphasis happening around your home and private life, you're in a unique position to go out into the world to support others through your work and career. While this is a good time to gain emotional fulfillment through a job well done or new accolades, consider developing your reputation as a powerful protector and nurturer. Use your ability of knowing how to harmonize environments to bring peace to those around you.

Scorpio

You've been so deep in your books and topics that have caught your interest that this Full Moon will have you shifting your attention to the bigger picture. How is your voice and knowledge going to help change the narrative you see around you? There's a philosophy that you hold close to your heart that needs your attention. Should you rely on it, it will feed your endless curiosity on how to make it tangible, practical, and worth sharing with others.

Sagittarius

Although so much of your work since Saturn left you for Capricorn has been about your finances and building a secure material base for yourself, Centaur, the Full Moon is demanding that you nurture what you share with others. It's easy to believe our self-worth is tied to our bank account. However, in reality, material wealth is merely a tool. It's the face to face time spent with loved ones and experiencing all the births, deaths, and all the intense moments in between. Mother your deep bonds and what's shared with others to get the most from this powerful Moon.

Capricorn

You've been doing so much work on refining and improving yourself, Capricorn, and that's a good thing! However, use this Full Moon to take care of some of your relationships. People have been looking for your attention lately, but you've been so busy doing you. The next time you're invited out for one on one time, say yes. Perhaps you'll get to enjoy a few comforting hugs and kisses as well as some feedback on all your personal growth.

Aquarius

Ideally, this Full Moon will help to illuminate the ways you can get out of your own head, Water Bearer. When facing underlying fears and doubts about your dreams, sometimes a daily schedule that pushes you to work past them is in order. Nurture the day-to-day routines, and refine your unutilized skill sets to help you keep your mind on doing rather than stewing.

Pisces

The key to being a great friend or asset to any organization is having a clear sense of what makes you shine so brilliantly. This Full Moon can help illuminate how you can tend to your personal hobbies and creative talents. You may want to spend some time with some children who help remind you to be joyous and what it feels like to take pride in just being you. Take comfort in your self-expression, Pisces. Turn up the music and crack open those old water colors and see what magic comes out!

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place! Between the joy of being a writer who sometimes gets samples sent to me, the constant research that I do for the couples I work with and having folks shout-out certain items semi-often, I've compiled a list of 12 sex-related items that may seem random AF (a pun is kind of intended there) and, at the same time, can make sex so much better between you and your partner. Where's your pad at? You're definitely gonna wanna take note.

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
