As I sit and write this post I wonder if everyone is having a great time with the sensationalism in the news. Snow, snow wonderful snow…away you go. That’s all it is,snow. Oh, yes, in my area, most likely there will be anywhere from a 18-23”. When I was growing up snow in January was normal. It’s winter. Have you forgotten? And then there was some discussion among the British folk that Mr. Trump should be banned from their country. Not going to happen but he was called a wazzock. A college student is being detained in North Korea because he was trying to get put in prison to see exactly what was happening there. This kind of thing makes me speechless and so does Facebook. Oh, yes, those NFL playoff games are Sunday. Get out of the Matrix.
The weekend brings us the Full Moon in Leo. The full moon illuminates your feelings, your emotions. It is a time to let go; purge the past. Whatever you started on the New Moon in Capricorn may come to fruition now. But this time it may still be stuck because unless you really hopped on it quickly, Mercury retrograde kept it right where you started it so you could reassess the whole idea. How many truly took a leap in the past 2 weeks? I really wanted to do so but I kept pushing to go forward and lost interest for a moment. Next week Mercury goes direct and you will find it easier to take it to the next level. Any decisions you made based on priorities you may have had in the past may soon be outdated and you will leave them back there.
FULL MOON in LEO occurs on January 23/24, 2016 at 8:45pm EST, 5:45pm PST, and 1:45am GMT in 3 degrees 29’. (Sun is in Aquarius at same degree.) Leo Full Moon loves to shine, to be out there in the world. It is the artist, the player, the lover. It has a regal air to it. Both Leo Moon and free-spirited Aquarius Sun love to party and have a great time. This is a time to open your hearts (Leo Moon) and your minds (Aquarius Sun). This Full Moon is about thinking about how the needs of you compare to the needs of the group. Leo FULL MOON wants to express itself in some sort of creative effort. Leo is also about the child within and those children around you. It is a time for you to come to the group thought even though Leos do not like to be out of the limelight. Compromise may be needed; keep that in mind. Remember Leo FULL MOON-think outside the box.
Leo Full Moon likes to express itself in creative ways. How are you bringing it out there? If you are feeling like the victim you will not be able to share anything creative to the world. Since you are creating your own reality then make it truly magnificent creative approach. What will you offer to the world? Messages may pop up since Mercury retrograde in Capricorn is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn as the Full Moon arrives. What kind of interesting message will come? It will surely be filled with intensity. Along with this Mercury conjunct Pluto influence is the Mercury square (in conflict) to Uranus in Aries. You may choose to be a bit more honest with yourself and others and open to doing things in a new way. Watch out for any intense power struggles which may erupt in your relationships due to the tightening again of Pluto square Uranus which comes within 1 degree on February 1. Watch for verbal abuse. Stay away from those who show erratic behavior. Some bullying also may be present. Keep your anxiety to a minimum so you don’t get pulled into this conflicting energy. There may be some shocking or unexpected news. Change of plans may be indicated for some individuals.
Have you found your calling? If not maybe it is calling to you. Since it will be with the Full Moon you need to watch your words don’t have too much emotion behind them. With Mars in Scorpio along with these other influences (Pluto does rule Scorpio) can make you feel like you are living with too many limits and wish to break free.
And as you go through the next month (January 20-February 20) the 5 planet alignment will be showing up in the early morning sky-Mercury (closest to the Sun), Venus, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter. So this says that as you express the truth it is filled with compassion and love along with responsibility and integrity as you find a better way to shift the things in your life. The only aspect to the Full Moon is not one of the main ones but it is important. Full Moon is quincunx (150 degrees apart) to the Venus in Sagittarius. It says that everyone wants to be happy towards each other. This is about fairness and perfection. And if you get into any disagreements, it won’t be pretty. So don’t. There is also an ongoing influence of family loyalty from earlier in January which continues.
The FULL MOON in LEO energy is more intense for those with birthdays between April 21-April 28 /Taurus 0-7 degrees; July 21-July 28/Leo 0-7 degrees; October 21-October 28/Scorpio 0-7 degrees; and January 21-January 28/Aquarius 0-7 degrees. If you have any planets in those degrees then you too will feel the intensity.
Some tidbits about the Full Moon in LEO for following Sun signs/Rising signs:
ARIES – Get moving and take some risks. Creative confidence. Get acquainted with some new people. If looking at a money issue, look for common ground in the budget.

How do you plan to shine with the FULL MOON in LEO?
Thank you for reading and share if you will. It is a creative time with some background intensity. Stay in the moment and allow yourself to create you as you wish. Join me on Tuesday nights at 9pm EST for Going Beyond Astrology. Would love to hear from you. Many blessings. Until again. Love, Jan
Let’s ride the stars to a far off place and find ourselves in Divine Grace. Let’s put the past where it belongs, and strike up the band and sing a song. Oh yes, the Full Moon is arriving on Tuesday not too far down the road. What have you been doing to purge your life of anything that still sits in the closets of your mind or the closets of your home? I know that a large proportion of the world sat and watched the Super Bowl yesterday. And it mimicked some of the energy of the Full Moon. Stars galore came together. For a moment the speculation and the distress-causing rumors were quelled and the focus was on the main event- those playing their best or not- on the big stage they call a field. The most unlikely ending came to a precision-oriented game of the Patriots and the questionable decisions by the Seahawks. Did anything else go on yesterday? Most of the watchers would not have known.
This Full Moon is occurring in Leo with the Sun in Aquarius at 14degrees 47’. It happens at 6:08pm EST, 3:08pm PST, and 11:08pm GMT on February 3, 2015. I am glad I am not following the moon phases on the Weatherscan on my TV since it said it was on the 4th of February which I know will be true in Sydney AU, not here. Obviously, Mercury is still retrograde as that may be why the error appeared. Since full moons are about getting rid of stuff and letting go, what are you choosing to release at this time? Oh, now, do remember it still has other factors going for it? The Full Moon in Leo is saying to you let’s have a good time and dance the night away. Leo loves the limelight as you may already know. It is about finding that creativity within and going beyond the self and sharing it.
So, what else is the Full Moon telling you? If there is something in your life that needs to be blasted out, like old karmic junk…what are you waiting for? This is a perfect time to do so. There is also a Yod aspect in the Full Moon chart. It is like a bow and arrow which points right at the Leo Moon. And what does that indicate? How about some forceful woman who shines in your life is right there for you? Who is that in your life? Since Venus in Pisces is quincunx the Full Moon it also says something that pleasure is in the mix. In my chart the Full Moon is in house 3 and Pluto in Capricorn and Chiron in Pisces are sextile in houses 8 and 10. For me it is about thinking makes it so. Onward! Those affected most intensely are Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio and Taurus individuals between 10 and 18 degrees.
As the Full Moon appears there are other items of interest to ponder. The Full Moon is a pretty happy due to Jupiter, the planet of expansion and jubilance right near it. How sweet it is. Take advantage of the bells that ring in your head and the happy place you can share if you choose to go in that direction. Or you may take expand upon the Jupiterian influence and find the purpose to your life. You can now connect your purpose to the greater good. Take your talents and gifts to others out there. The world awaits your sharing wisdom, song and truth. Do it in a dramatic fashion. Be confident in your approach. Leos love being sharp and on target. And since the Sun is in Aquarius do take that out of the box thinking and use it to garner support for your projects that will help your image and bring some notice to you. Oh, there is something more. This is a grand time to connect to a Higher Power or the God of your belief. This also is saying to look within for your answers and your purpose. I spoke about these things on my radio show last Friday night. I said that this was about you and who you are within. If you have a relationship and it is bringing you the best there is, then flow with it. If a work situation is in need of adjustments then let the energy flow through you. You are what you believe. Know that. If someone doesn’t like what you say, so what? It is his/her opinion. Listen and decide. If you don’t agree, let it go. You are here to believe in yourself. Any struggle that appears, see the opportunity instead.
Keep in mind that as you shine you still need to purge out the past. Just get rid of it already. Go beyond the resistance and seek be the truth. Can you do that? I know many of you are putting effort into finding your truth and taking some leaps. Kudos to you! And since Mercury is still retrograde until February 11 your plans may be changing slightly. You may notice that anything that you have been doing for the past couple of weeks may be shifting as you head to the Full Moon and beyond. Dig deep in the trenches until Mercury goes direct. No signing anything major yet or it will not turn out as the original agreement.
Still out there in the mix is the Pluto in Capricorn/Uranus in Aries square. That will be coming to the seventh time it is in exact square. What does that mean? I will review it closer to the time in March. It is currently affecting those with planets in and around 10-15 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Aries and Libra.
The Full Moon in Leo is pretty much in a slightly quirky mode. So, whatever you choose to do with the arrow that is coming at it, use it wisely. Be clear in your approach to others. There are lots of grey areas in this Full Moon energy due to the various quincunxes and other aspects that are a bit stuck. So, whatever you are looking for may come to you in totally different ways then you even considered before. Some things may be hidden and when they come out you may have to decipher their meaning. You may just want to blast out the truth if you choose to do so. Good luck on that. It may be truly worth it.
Looking for a sunny day to chase the clouds away. Leo Full Moon may just do that. Be well and thank you for reading. Share if you choose. Until again. Blessings and love, Jan
