The Full Moon in Leo is on approach!!! 🙌 Exact on Saturday, February 8th at 11:33pm PDT - this lunation is dedicated to driving us further into our heart's fires and personal authenticity, and we will need a courageous spirit that can follow these former impetuses towards the ultimate goals of the Self. The wild side of our natures are being activated during this lunation and there is a level of intoxication that can take place as we get lit up by the drama that rises within and without, yet there is also a stabilization occurring that can root our passions down into the twisting plotlines of our future trajectories. We are in an in-between zone still, yet we are on the path to discover an updated sense of individual belonging while finding our tribe in the process.
The Aspects - Stabilizing The Lead-In 🔥
Below is a chart of our Full Moon at the time of conjunction here in San Diego, CA. We see that our Full Moon in Leo is in a tug-of-war with the Aquarius Sun, while Venus in Aries gets sandwiched between Chiron and Lilith. We also see that Mercury is now in Pisces, preparing for an upcoming RX, and Jupiter is slowly moving towards the Neptune sextile. Don't count Mars out though... for he plays a big roll in this story, as well! Follow along in the astrocast to watch the planets at work!
Here are the tarot correspondences, as well, so you can get an abstract picture of the archetypal forces that are at play during this Full Moon! The left side corresponds with the Leo energies at play while the right side taps into the Aquarius energies. It's always important to remember that a Full Moon activates a polarity and I think looking at the cards can help illustrate that back and forth. I highly recommend Mel Meleen's Tabulua Mundi Tarot deck - click on the picture if you want to purchase!
Do you connect with the symbols at play? Which one is resonating most right now? How can you balance all these elements to get better insight into the bigger picture and how to plan your forward trajectory?
The Symbol - A Whole Lot of Squawking 🐔
If you are a previous reader of my astroblog, you know I like to look at the Sabian Symbol of the lunation as it adds another bit of depth to the story that we are telling. As always, we take the degree and minutes and round up. Here we have the following:
21° Leo - "Chickens Intoxicated."
Theme: Making Use Of What You Have
This seems like such the appropriate symbol knowing what is going on in the world, and in particular, America right now! Leo is known for its drama and the potential for the heart to go over the top at times, so we do have to be aware when things such as lust, dominion, and vanity begin to entice us into their intoxicating glow. Something at this time may wear off or need further grounding so we will have to make use of the current situation yet stay centered in the fact that we may need to wait for illusion to turn into clarity.
What or whose spell are you currently under? Where could you benefit from better self-control? What issue is squawking around in your heart and mind? Is all as it seems? Do we need to have patience for what is revealed after the spell wears off?
Full Moon Blessings to All!! 💫
This Full Moon is likely to be quite feisty! Yet the passions that flow through us and the burning desires of the heart team up to push us forward while also stimulating objectivity, patience, and release. Yes, we could get caught up and fixated on it all, yet if we pull back just enough with that Aquarius sense of detachment, we will be able to see the bigger picture at play and have our most valuable team player - the heart - on our sides and ready to drive this bus into the future.
Wishing everyone a fabulous Full Moon in Leo!
May the stars be with you!!! ✨✨✨
