The Full Moon in crabby cancer may be causing emotional drama in situations where you weren’t expecting it. Tread gently and come from a place of love and forgiveness. The universal number vibrations are 5 and 6 creating unstable situations (the 5) in relationships or friendships (the 6). The number 6 rules venus which is now traveling in the earth sign of Capricorn so it’s important to ground and balance your emotions. The Full Moon signals a time of completion, endings, purging and detoxing. Negative emotions and feelings can be activated causing pessimism to surface. The following essential oils work will help relieve tension, depression, moodiness or anything you want to release, including addictions of any kind, during this Full Moon in Cancer.
