The first full moon of the year has officially arrived, and there’s some heavy energy in the cosmos. It rises in brave Leo on Jan. 25, 2024 at 12:54 p.m. ET (9:54 p.m. PT). This lunation is intense, and most people will feel uncomfortable as the fire sign’s energy pushes them to speak from their hearts. However, if you’re one of the lucky zodiac signs least affected by January’s full moon — also known as the Wolf Moon — this moment is about letting loose and allowing childlike wonder to take the wheel.

In astrology, full moons are knowns as the time to move forward. Shake off any unwanted energy and tackle your most important plans. With January’s full Wolf Moon operating in jovial Leo, there’s a mellow side to this lunation. “This is a very hopeful and optimistic full moon, as both the sun and moon are in a tight square to abundant Jupiter,” says astrologer Erin River Sunday. That planet is known to bestow blessings; exciting opportunities could be on their way.

Because Pluto, the planet of transformation and endings, stirs up destruction in rebellious Aquarius, most people will struggle to adapt to tough changes. However, if you’re one of the four zodiac signs who will breeze by January’s full Wolf Moon, you’ll reap the benefits of the seeds you planted earlier this month. If that requires a tough conversation, remember that vulnerability can be a strength. Lay your heart on the table.

Read on to find out if you’re one of the zodiac signs least affected by this full moon.

Aries Zodiac Signs (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is one of the zodiac signs most affected by the full Wolf Moon on January 25, 2024.

For you, Aries, this lunation is all about play — not work. “It’s a feel-good time that might shed light on creative projects,” Sunday says. Despite being an easygoing lunation, Pluto’s presence asks that you take your artistic endeavors seriously.

The cosmic changes afoot could also cause you to outgrow certain joys or introduce new passions. Either way, keep an open mind and stay flexible.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

This full moon shines light on your career, Cancer. You’ve worked hard, and now it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. “There might be a nice bonus showing up around this date,” Sunday says. Alternatively, treat yourself.

Even if you’re taking it easy at work, don’t go too wild — especially online. On social media, showcase your professional side.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

Libra, let your social life take center stage, Libra. “It’s a great moment for making connections with friends, new and old,” Sunday says.

Express your gratitude your friends the Leo way: the more grandiose, the better. You might treat them to a fabulous dinner or pick up a gift that reminds you of them, but you don’t need to spend money to make an impact. A heartfelt card is a special keepsake.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

Let your guard down, Capricorn. For you, January’s full Wolf Moon in Leo is a reminder to let go of goals that no longer support your vision. This doesn’t have to feel heavy — it’s proof of how much you’ve grown.

“There could be a new financial deal being sealed around this time, and partnerships of all kinds will be feeling especially supportive,” Sunday says.
