Our first FULL MOON of 2018 is a SUPERMOON on the 2 January. This is the third SUPERMOON in a trilogy of FULL MOON SUPERMOONS – the first & second having taking place in November & December 2017.
On the back of last months Galactic Alignment and amplified through our 2018 Universal 11 Year energy… plus the day after our 1 January 2018 11:11 gateway (more about that below)… this is a joyous & exhilarating Full Moon to kick off 2018 !
We also have a BLUE MOON Full Moon at the end of January combined with our first Lunar Eclipse of the year… and I will share more about this in a future post 🙂
Please also refer to our CELESTIAL Events for 2018 – Lunar, Solar & Astro Table for an overview of all transits for the entire year of 2018.
General Meaning – Full Moons
The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour & consciousness. In addition, during a Full Moon, both the Moon & Sun are opposing each other on opposite sides of the zodiac… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.
The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego. It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression. The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.
The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams. It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype. The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.
During a FULL MOON, the Moon is fully illuminated as it sits in opposition to our Sun. The energy (influenced by the current Zodiac transit) is heightened and emotions, feelings, mental processes, dreams etc are all amplified. When the Sun & Moon oppose each other during a Full Moon, this can cause tension & uncomfortable friction, but at the same time a greater amplification of vision & potential possibility. The Full Moon is a powerful time of gratitude, gracefully acknowledging the beauty of life itself and all you have brought into beingness. You may feel a burning desire to express your creativity, bliss out in sensual activities & through fierce yet profoundly tender vibrations let go of any aspects of your life that no longer serve the grandest vision of your Soul.
The FULL MOON is a great time to ‘moon bathe’ – simply sit under the light of the moon & meditate – and is you breathe-in allow the moon to warm your Heart & expand the beauty of the present moment, and as you breathe-out let the light of the moon transmute that which you wish to release. Full Moon ceremonies, either lighting a candle for yourself or coming together with others in sacred circle, is a powerful way to bring healing to the self/group and simply BE this Wave of LOVE for all Humanity & planet Earth. I LOVE placing my crystals out under the Full Moon to cleanse their crystalline structures and infuse them with solar vibrations.

Moon – past, Intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, Identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Cancer (water) – nurturing, family, sensitive, emotional, moody, psychic
Capricorn (Earth) – Practical, realist, reliable, hard worker, cautious
During the CANCER Full Moon, the moon is reflecting the light of the Sun in CAPRICORN.
As the forces of the Sun & Moon oppose each other (Ego vs Emotions, I vs We) … our FULL MOON will have a super-charged effect as it is the third of trilogy of Supermoons over the months of November, December & now finally January 2018.
Our first FULL MOON of 2018 is quite significant as it involves many aspects all contributing to the theme of 2018.

The impact of 11:11 this Full Moon…
As I discussed in my Numerology of 2018 post, this year we enter a Universal 11 Year in Numerology – a Master Number – a year of of aetherial, magical & transcendental learning & growth.
PLUS on the 1 January 2018… an 11:11 Gateway opens to us (1st day, of the 1st Month of an 11 Year) – a wakeup key embedded within our DNA reminding us that the Light of Creation resides within.
PLUS on our FULL Moon SUPERMOON the Moon is positioned at 11038 (11:11) Cancer and the SUN is positioned at 11038 (11:11) Capricorn. WOW of WOW… YES the energy of 11 is certainly the theme of 2018 and it become amplified to the MAX over our first FULL MOON of the year.
Emotions running high this Full Moon…
The FULL MOON in watery CANCER will mean that emotions will be running very high this FULL MOON… but if channeled wisely, will be a brilliant opportunity to gain deep intuitive insight into your own personal themes for 2018. What do you envision / feel / imagine for yourself this 2018 and what must you let go of in order to birth this awakened vision of you ? Let the Sun in the practical sign of CAPRICORN bring to light what is felt deep within your Heart-n-Soul.
When the Moon is in Cancer, the focus is on your family and home environment. You may feel a sudden urge to de-clutter, finish those odd-jobs & make your abode more homely. The focus on family & relationships will also be heightened with the Moon close to the asteroid VESTA. Your heart will be guided to nurture and provide a homely sanctuary for your loved ones… or maybe spicing up the bedroom & spending time with your lover. There will be a calling to nest down and find solace in the comfort and security of your home.
A great Full Moon for channelling…
On a side note too, MERCURY the planet of Communication, moved direct from its Retrograde transit on the 23/24 December 2017 just after its playful time with the GALACTIC CENTRE Alignment. Thus leading into this FULL MOON SUPERMOON third & final trilogy, we are receiving ‘channeled’ insight into a more beautiful world… and now its up to us to take our insights and put them into conscious action.
Awakening the Divine Feminine this Full Moon…
On an interesting note, MAKEMAKE (a dwarf planet) at 40Libra is conjunct the SuperGalactic Centre (SGC) at 20Libra. MakeMake compels us to delve down into the dark interior of the psyche in order to obtain a more passive and feminist form of received wisdom to be merged with the warrior male outer-oriented energy of the ego. And the Super Galactic Centre represents the greater potential of our Higher Collective Consciousness – the Collective Evolutionary Purpose of our Galaxy. WOW… what a combination to conjunct and amplify each other!!!
But wait there is more… this MakeMake/SGC conjunction is also in a weak square with the MOON in opposition with VENUS (Venus the Goddess / Divine Feminine) and also in a week conjunction with SIRIUS (the archetypal Divine Masculine). Venus can be serious in LOVE when in Capricorn and when in opposition to the Moon in Cancer, we are guided to look at ALL of our relationships and to ‘see’ if we are fulfilled or are needs are being met… and the different expectations that exists between partners.
I feel strongly that this SUPER FULL MOON will prize the lid open further on high-profile cases of sexual misconduct. Leading into this FULL MOON we are already seeing celebrities being ‘called out‘ for diminishing mysoginistic behaviour by rating it on a scale… for what we are reminded of this FULL MOON is that EVERY action, word or deed that diminishes a women will NOT EVER be tolerated.
Full Moon SUPERMOON Energy…
As mentioned above, our January 1/2, 2018 FULL MOON marks the third SUPERMOON in a trilogy of FULL MOON SUPERMOONS.
The first SUPERMOON occurred on November 3/4, 2017, the second on December 3/4, 2017 and the third now takes place on January 1/2, 2018.
Overall, energy runs high during a SUPERMOON… you may feel more emotional, electric, experience sleep disturbances or have expressive / lucid dreams. You may also find your intuition is heightened, synchronicity more pronounced and you become more aware or sensitive to the energy of the environment / people / plants / animals… actually everything !
During this 3rd SUPERMOON we are anchoring the energy that opened to us during the energetic window GALACTIC ALIGNMENT on the 18 to 22 December 2017.
We start 2018 on this FULL MOON SUPERMOON inspired to embrace our greater Evolutionary Purpose and to step into the grandest version of the greatest vision that we have ever held for ourselves. ♡
