Full Moon in Leo: Release through Love.
This has been quite a year, and it still only the beginning part of February. We began the year with a historical pairing of Saturn and Pluto at 22 degrees of Capricorn, which is at the world axis. This set the tone for the next 36 years of what we need to be build in our lives, and where we need to be accountable. What we need to restore and repair; what we need to let die.
Success may not come easily, but the rewards could be lifelong. Although Saturn briefly ventures into the fixed air sign of Aquarius from March 22, 2020 until July 2, 2020, it remains in its home sign of Capricorn until December 17, 2020. This transit tests us, demands our best, and enables us to structure our goals and time if we heed the lessons wisely. Saturn requires patience and moral strength — particularly when it is in its domicile.
This month has us in a bit of a different direction. The narrative of 2020 has been so driven by action and responsibility, as Capricorn is a cardinal sign that demands that things get done! It is an earth sign that can sometimes be perceived as cold.
While this year is essential to getting aligned with your purpose and goals, it is important to rest and restore. Mercury remains in Pisces on and off through April 11, 2020, so this gives us ample time for feeling and reflecting.
While Mercury is in its detriment and headed for a retrograde, Venus is now in its detriment in the Cardinal fire sign of Aries. Venus is very aggressive in Aries and tends to come off a bit too enthusiastic. Venus remains in Aries until March 4, 2020 when it enters its home sign of Taurus. Until then, perhaps there is an awkward beauty to these two planets being in their detriment.
We prepare for a beautiful Full Moon in Leo that occurs on February 9, 2020 at 2:33 AM EST at 20 degrees of Leo. Leo is a fixed fire sign that rules the heart. This is a fun and passionate placement of the moon, which focuses on romance, creative expression, children, and love. This brings some more emotion, fire, and enthusiasm to a Capricorn winter that now needs a little flair. This is a great time to do a Full Moon ritual to honor the Full Moon in Leo. Release what is blocking your creativity and heart.
The Full Moon chart has Sagittarius ascendant with the rising sign being at 9 degrees of Sagittarius, which is the degree of the Royal fixed star of Antares. Antares is a fixed star associated with the spirit of adventure. Mars, the planet of activity, is at 25 degrees of Sagittarius and is in the first house of self and new beginnings.
Chiron has been moving back and forth at the early degrees of Aries since the summer of 2018. Venus is bringing some clarity on that story and delivers the message to embrace your flaws and love yourself. Use this weekend to manifest with Mercury in Pisces, open your heart and honor the full Moon in Leo, and face your wounds with Chiron in Aries.
Use this Lunar Eclipse to nurture yourself and mother yourself during a time where there will be life changing events and decisions. Uranus, the great awakener, stations direct on the very day of The Lunar Eclipse Eclipse. Uranus stops and stations direct at 8:49 pm EST at 2 degrees of Taurus. This is going to make this eclipse even more intense, unpredictable, and informative!
Uranus is the planet of surprises and the unexpected. Things can change in a flash with Uranus, and it can promote brilliant thoughts. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury; therefore, with Mercury conjunct the Sun in the Solar Eclipse and Uranus direct, there will be much waking up for us on the collective and in our own lives.
Saturn and Pluto meet up on January 12, 2020 at 22 degrees of the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn. This a new story of purging what keeps you from building the life you want to manifest and launch. If you are at a crossroads, it is time to make a decision of what you want to plan, and there direction where you want to go. Very karmic responsibilities, decisions, and actions this month and year.
If you are in line with your integrity and hard work, you can build an amazing new future. Are you empowering yourself with truth and honor? You co-create with this energy. What do you wish to release, and what do you wish to construct?
