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 Any decisions you made based on priorities you may have had in the past may soon be outdated and you will leave them back there.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.
