"One thing you can't hide … is when you're crippled inside."

-- John Lennon

If ever there was a Moon to break out the tissues and comfort food, it's the Cancer full Moon -- which occurs this week on January 15. Some like to call this the crybaby full Moon, as all of our inner unfed and undernourished tots come out to scream for the love and care we never got from our mothers.

This particular full Moon in Cancer has been really heating up as we experience another version of the cardinal cross right before the lunar orb peaks. We felt a lot of angst last week when the waxing Aries Moon found her way into the fray -- exploding tempers and tantrums galore!

This time, Cancer brings a more moody and whiney approach to the inner squeeze and feeling that we somehow just can't get our needs met. Some of the same issues of passive-aggressive measures and emotional manipulation resurface, so try pull up your big girl and boy pants this week. It's all too easy to regress to more babyish tactics under this highly sensitive lunation. Feel your feelings but, as spiritual leader Ammachi likes to say, "don’t get embroiled in the blame game."

This is the week not to give in to unreasonable and childish demands as hard as it may be. Summon the opposite sign of Capricorn for more mature, adult responses to challenging situations. If you must throw your fists in the air and stomp around, just be sure to do it when the higher-ups aren't paying attention. You wouldn't want to pitch a fit right into unemployment!

Family issues are sure to reach a fever pitch this week as well, as Cancer is very connected to our past, our roots and our mother issues in general. Spending time with nurturing females and even mother-substitutes is recommended. Nurture yourself and be loving and gentle with your inner brat this week because he or she will be kicking up quite a litany of needs and complaints. Finally our oral fixation tendencies are sure to take over so if you have a tendency to eat, drink or smoke for comfort you may want to calibrate or have someone watch over you during this luniest of lunations.
