This Leo Full Moon occurs on February 3rd at 3:09pm PST/ 6:09pm EST/ 11:08 GMT.
The Sabian symbol for the Sun at 15* Aquarius is: Two Love Birds singing and flying joyfully around one another. This symbol speaks to the blessings we receive and the bliss we feel when we connect with our Spirit/Self. There's a sense of free-spirited enjoyment, a faith in happy outcomes and the ability to speak from Love and the heart. When we know and live our higher Self and ideals, we live in bliss.
The Sabian symbol for the Moon at 15* Leo is: A loud and colorful circus parade snakes through city streets. What a beautiful image of magic and mystery invading our cultural consciousness! It's hard to repress the energy of life seem here as a circus parade, even in the midst of constraints and duty. This symbolizes a call to bring our creative expressions of these mysterious life energies back into the culture. We need to tell our stories to the world.
The Moon, Juno and Jupiter in Leo are the pivot of this full Moon chart, demanding that we open to our creative imagination to handle what life is bringing our way. Juno and Jupiter enact the Sacred Marriage of Masculine and Feminine Spirit, balancing and centering us. The Moon opens the way to the imagination and to the inner world.
Leo is the sign of Individuation, the energy connecting our ego consciousness to our inner Spirit, the Self. Leo is also the archetypal path of creativity, whether it concerns our children or our artistic creations. While Leos can certainly remain unconscious in terms of self-awareness and still be creative, the quality of creativity changes when this energy is used consciously and conscientiously. This Full Moon in Leo is certainly hardwired to bring us self-awareness if we let it.
The Sun is joined in Aquarius by Mercury retrograde and Vesta. Aquarius is the archetypal path to freedom, rebellion, genius, community and visionary goals. It teaches us the power of collaboration. Our Leo creativity is needed by the world, and it's easier to get things accomplished if we work together. Our Minds are being transformed in Vesta's fires. Vesta can bring us back to our virginal, original minds. In Aquarius, we get the go ahead to think outside the box. Let your genius shine out where it's needed.
Uranus in Aries gifts this Full Moon with the joy of freedom, the passion of rebellion and the vision of genius. Look to see where these energies are playing out in your chart. It will help you hone your vision for this year.
The oceans of Pisces are overflowing with energies. Neptune, its ruling planet, is moving ahead, dissolving old pain, freeing old forms, creating new dreams. Venus joins Neptune on February 1st, bringing her love and compassion into play, since we need to ground in the knowledge that we are indeed, all one. All three Peoples of the Book (Jews, Christians & Moslems) are told by their God to take care of each other and the Earth. How few of them listen! Perhaps we Pagans need to show them how.
Both Chiron the Wounded Healer and Mars are also in Pisces. If we can heal the wounded Masculine, the masculine energy that uses domination and violence to get its way, we have a chance to change the world. For millennia, men have been trained for war and violence--it's in their genetic and cultural makeup. Their emotional bodies are scared and it's hard work to heal that. Yet it is up to men to work on themselves and then work with our young men to give them different examples of what real manhood means. What does being a man mean to you?
There will be three meetings of Venus and Mars (Aries, Leo, Virgo) this year, indicating the new possibilities for relationship between masculine and feminine, man and woman. We women are being called to stand up and speak our Wisdom, and men are being called upon to live and act with integrity, honor, courage, strength and open-heartedness.
Walk in the Light!
