Jan 6, 2023 at 3:08 pm PST is a full Moon in Cancer, also a supermoon that appears larger and brighter in the night sky. Water sign Cancer rules the fourth house of home, family, and nurturing.

During this full Moon in Cancer, and as the moon wanes down the last two weeks of Tiger year, you may experience an increased sense of intuition, empathy, and deep emotions. In the tail of Tiger year, it becomes clear what did work or what did not work for you. Contact me to schedule your Rabbit year astrology forecast.

Now is good to focus on your home and prepare for the year of the Water Rabbit on the next new moon Jan 21 PST and Jan 22 in China. The year of the Rabbit is favorable to create peace, calm, and rest after the roaring activity of the previous Tiger year. Below are Mercury retrograde and Venus retrograde dates in Rabbit year:

Mercury is retrograde for three weeks, three or four times a year. During Mercury retrograde, avoid travel, new projects, or signing documents that cannot be changed.

Dec 29, 2022 – Jan 18, 2023
In Earth sign Capricorn to get grounded, realistic, and organized especially with career and finances. Mercury is retrograde now until Jan 18. If you include the shadow period a week before and after Mercury retrograde, the ending date is Jan 25.
