Wait, what is the Full Wolf Moon in Cancer exactly?

As you probably know from looking at the night sky on the reg, the moon has different phases. The biggest and brightest phase is the full moon. Each full moon is linked up with a different astrological sign that helps give it a certain ~vibe~, and this year’s Full Wolf Moon is in the sign of Cancer.

This particular full moon’s name comes from a mix of Native American, Colonial American, and European sources. The Full Wolf Moon traditionally came at a time when wolves were more likely to be heard howling, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac. FYI: It’s also known as the Cold Moon and Frost Exploding Moon in some parts.

How will the Full Wolf Moon in Cancer impact your zodiac sign?

Cancer is all about feelings, emotions, and family, which includes figuring out how to juggle everything *gestures broadly* you’ve got going on in life.

On the one side, you’ve got some serious take-charge energy fueling your desire to ace your career goals and bring in a solid salary, so you can pay your bills and then some. Ya know, practical stuff. On the other, you know it’s clutch to pay attention to your emotions and everyday needs, and that includes making time for a personal life.

So, take a beat to try to figure out what you can do to free up a little more time in your life for the fun stuff. Maybe it means setting your email notifications to "Do Not Disturb" the second the clock strikes five every day so you actually log off, or making a standing date with your bestie to go on early morning runs so you have quality time to chat and squeeze in some exercise before your day gets going.

At the same time, Pluto is bringing in some intense, passionate energy that’ll seep into your love life. You know what you deserve from a partner, so how can you make sure you’re getting all your needs met? If you’re already coupled up, don’t hesitate to talk to your S.O. about what more you need from the relationship—it’ll only make you stronger. And, if you’re single, be open and direct about what you’re looking for. It’ll prevent you from wasting a lot of time on future first dates, trust.

The full moon will impact all zodiac signs, but Cancer and Capricorn will feel it the most.

How will the Full Wolf Moon in Cancer impact your future?
