Wolf Moon in Cancer with One "Little" Drawback

The full moon on January 6th, 2023, is usually called the Wolf Moon because, once upon a time, the local villagers could hear the wolves howling at the moon in the freezing cold in the dead of winter. This first full moon for the beginning of 2023 will be in Cancer, which means your feelings, mood, and intuition will be on high alert. With that, you can resolve certain issues in your life, both past and present. This is a time when you should be selfish and look after yourself more than the people around you. Once you look after yourself, you can look after those you love and the projects you cherish.
There is one "little" drawback!
All this happens when Mercury is in retrograde. It moved into retrograde on December 28th, 2022 and remains retrograde until January 18th, 2023. This means your emotions will be heightened and, not to mention, challenged. So take a deep breath, and try to have a cool demeanor, if you can. (Personally, I am feeling it on a big level, and I don't like it!!!) So, make sure you take a deep breath, dot your "i's and cross your "t's before you do anything. This would be a great time to meditate and not let this get to you.
Unfortunately, this is not a good time to do anything on a ritual level with your votive candles because they will do the exact opposite of what you want them to do for you! Trust me, I've seen the results if you do!! Instead, you can light sage and use meditation to help clear your energy and space.
None the less, have a beautiful full moon!
Light all around you!
