Full Moon Horoscope December 2023

This year’s Cold Moon arrives at Cancer (4 degrees) and occurs on December 26, 2023. This means that as the holidays get ramped up, we’ll feel the Cold Moon already trickling in, too, and its power will even echo until the turn of the New Year.

This lunation is linked to the New Moon that occurred in Cancer (24 degrees) on July 17, 2023. Look back to the events, situations, and plans that were initiated in the week following that time. You may find similar events popping up on your radar once again. (Let us know if you notice any connections in the comments below!)

With the full Moon appearing in Cancer, the energy of this zodiac sign will radiate through the cosmos and collective. Cancer is the fourth zodiac sign on the wheel and is known as a Cardinal Water sign. Cancer holds deep ties to domesticity, family, tradition, emotions, and our roots. Since this sign is ruled by the Moon, full Moon in Cancer tend to be especially powerful, nostalgic, and emotional.

Cancer exists on the opposite polarity of Capricorn, and together the two signs express the duality between the home versus career. In another matter of speaking, they rule the private life versus the public life, as well as the past and the legacy we seek to build.

Horoscopes explained with a zodiac wheel.

When it comes to astrological energy that will color this period in time, we will feel especially lucky and joyous! In fact, this is one of the best full Moons in 2023—almost like a gift from a loving universe.

Jupiter, the planet of luck, links with the full Moon, spilling happiness, blessings, and fortunate breakthroughs upon our lives. Saturn, the planet of strength, joins in on the dance and will bring long-term growth and perseverance to anything that we initiate or agree to now on a personal or professional level.

Mercury, planet of the mind, jazzes it up with Mars, bringing a social atmosphere, but will clash with Neptune, which could bring a little confusion to our lives. Luckily, Venus spins with Neptune, encouraging us to enjoy pleasure, imagination, and magic.

Beware: Mars crosses swords with Neptune, which may make us feel like we’re burning the candle at both ends with all of our holiday festivities. Be mindful of your energy levels and don’t over-do-it!
