The Wolf Moon in Leo perfects on Jan 28th. At the Full Moon, our luminaries oppose each other. They are the maximum distance apart, and able to view each other fully. We are called to find a balance between the energies. The Sun represents our essence and the Moon what we need to be nurtured. Humans are social animals, we need each other to survive. The Sun in airy Aquarius encourages us to nurture the connection to our friends, community, and the collective. The Moon in the fiery Leo reminds us to never lose the inner child. Our souls need to create joy and pleasure so that we may thrive.
The Sabian Symbol for this juicy Full Moon in Leo is Early Morning Dew Salutes the Sunlight. It is so fitting that we have a four-planet parade in the sign of Aquarius, the eccentric air sign with the symbology of the water bearer. The early morning is a time of hope and new beginnings. We emerge from the dark and to the fresh air. Here we can find our inner wisdom.
Our lights are each having a tense conversation with Mars - the planet of our drive, passions, and assertion. Are you still remaining social despite the distance? Are you sharing your knowledge, time, or resources with those in difficult circumstances? Do you prioritize your own joy, or expend all your energy satisfying the needs of others? There is magical energy for healing. Have a heart-centered conversation with yourself. Lean into your feminine power and release any guilt for not being all things to all people. Remain giving yet loyal to your needs for fun and creativity.
I discuss the upcoming Moon Phase on Instagram Live every Sunday at 9:30 am PST. This week, I shared my thoughts on the Leo Full Moon and the astrology of Amanda Gorman, the National Youth Poet Laureate. “The Hill We Climb” was a message of resilience as our country emerges from a dark period and reaches from the sunlight.

With love and light,
