Every 28 days, the full moon makes its grand entrance in the night sky, revealing the entirety of its celestial beauty. As it showers the universe with its glowing, ethereal light, you can literally *feel* its power surging through your spirit. And if you’re one of the zodiac signs most affected by the full moon, there’s a strong chance the experience will leave you changed in some way!

A full moon always takes place while the moon—ruler of your internal self—is forming an opposition with the sun—ruler of your external self—creating inner turmoil and forcing you to take action. It’s not unusual for deep-seated emotions to rise to the surface like a volcanic explosion, nor it is uncommon for major epiphanies to take place during this time. Because the full moon is also the most climactic phase of the lunar cycle, it’s often a time that evokes major changes and revelatory moments. Like it or not, a full moon will always set you free!

On January 6, a full moon in Cancer will reach its peak at 6:08 p.m. ET. Because Cancer—the cardinal water sign ruled by the moon—is famous for being a zodiac sign of emotions, sentimentality and domestic affairs, this full moon is bound to blow the lid off of a predicament in your personal life. Expect chaos and intensity to unfold in your home environment, family dynamic and sacred spaces. Embrace the process, because it will ultimately be so healing.

However, you may be getting more than you bargained for during this full moon. After all, it will form an opposition conjunction with Mercury retrograde, which means you can expect things to get a little messy. Mercury—planet of communication, technology and hijinks—has been retrograding through Capricorn since December 29, bringing rise to issues that need confronting and resentments that require review.

If your sun sign, moon sign or rising sign falls under any of the following zodiac signs, the upcoming full moon will provide you with some catharsis for some of that pent-up anger. Here’s why these zodiac signs will feel particularly rocked by it:

You’ve been working so hard to gain more clout in your career and to propel yourself even further toward success. However, winning the game isn’t the most important thing in your life, especially if you’re avoiding problems in your personal life under the guise of being a workaholic. Bringing your focus to your fourth house of family and lineage, the full moon in Cancer wants you to understand that you had no control over where you come from or who you’re related to. And although you might feel bogged down by pressure at home, you have the power to build your own idea of home, no matter where that may be. If you aren’t happy with your address or you and your parents aren’t getting along, this full moon will inspire you to start doing something about it (one way or the other).

This full moon is all about you, Cancer. You’re the star of the show and everyone’s tuning in to hear what you have to say! Because this full moon shines a light on your first house of the self, it will encourage you to stare deep into your own reflection and take a close look at the person you’re becoming. Just because you’ve make mistakes in the past doesn’t mean you’re the same person you were before. Allow this full moon to show you all the ways in which you’ve grown (and all the ways in which you’ve been growing). Prepare for a climactic moment in your life to unfold, because a full moon is always a moment of change and completion. You may be releasing anger, sadness and resentments you didn’t realize you had been holding in. Don’t punish yourself for feeling emotional, Cancer. You’re just clearing away space for something *much* better.

What do you want to accomplish, Libra? What do you want to be known for? The full moon in Cancer is bringing power to your 10th house of career and reputation, shining a light on your social standing. You may be rethinking your professional goals and realizing that something isn’t working. Turning the ship around when it’s veered off course is never easy, but it’s better than continuing in the wrong direction. You have so much potential to do something incredible with your career, especially if you start now! However, that doesn’t mean quitting just when the going gets tough either. The road ahead is riddled with obstacles, challenges and downright disappointments, but if you’re not willing to weather the storm, how else will you be able to prove how much you deserve it?

Your solar return is underway, which is reminding you to be confident in yourself and to believe in your ability to become a better person. However, the full moon in Cancer is bringing your attention to your one-on-one relationships. Taking place in your seventh house of allies, enemies, spouses besties and business partners, this lunar event is forcing you to recognize what is and isn’t working when it comes to your relationship dynamics. If the foundation of a relationship is weak and unreliable, this full moon might be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. However, if you and your partner are willing to take responsibility and meet in the middle, this full moon will make you realize just how strong your relationship truly is, Capricorn. And remember—every couple disagrees with each other every now and then, especially if they care for each other.
