The waxing moon grows full in the bold, courageous, and magnanimous sign of Leo. Full moons signify the completion, culmination of what may have been initiated during the previous new moon in Aquarius which encouraged us to dream big, get out of a rut, and get unstuck. This Full Moon in Leo wonders whether we are brave enough to follow through on our intentions/objectives and dares us to be courageous enough to walk the talk.
We're already into the second month of the year. How have we fared so far with our good intentions of making this a different year than previous years? If you started off the year taking steps toward achieving resolutions, then you're well on your way, especially if you've successfully integrated changes into your everyday. Kudos!
But then again, maybe you're like me ... I do really well a week at a time but only every other week :) Life, work, friends, family ... still doing our best with the balancing act and injecting personal improvements when the opportunity arise. Is this effort good enough though? In the immediate, maybe. In the longer term, however, it will only work if we learn to create the opportunities, make the time, put the self higher up on the list of priorities.
During this full moon phase, put an end to the excuses (even if they are good ones :). Be like Nike and just do it! You can make this the year that you envisioned it to be.
This full moon happens on February 7th at 1:53 p.m. PST / 4:53 p.m. EST and at 19° of Leo. Those born within 3 days of February 7th or August 10th or with natal planets and/or house angles on or around 19° of fixed signs may experience the effects of this full moon stronger than others.
For me, this Leo-Full Moon trines my natal Moon and squares my natal Saturn; as a Virgo-rising, falls in my natal 11th house (friendships/associations) and as a Cancer-Sun, falls in my solar 2nd house (income/possessions). What may be well with my heart (trine to my Moon) may not necessarily be what works, what's right or what should be (square to my Saturn). Or perhaps, what I truly desire presently is just not possible for now. But then again, I may get I wish for only to find out that the reality of it may be more than I bargained for :) With the 2nd house in play, I'll keep the spending minimal.
