I need to move my Christmas Cactus to a larger pot. I do have a bag of Miracle-Gro indoor plant soil, can I use this soil or do I need the cactus soil?

Most cacti and succulents really prefer a well-draining soil. However, in my experience, Christmas cactus will do well in either type. My mother uses a rich organic soil and her Christmas cactus threatens to take over the room. However, make sure the pot has good drainage holes and the roots don't sit in water. Good luck!
