The Full Moon in Leo marks the beginning of a new cycle. The Aquarius sun opposes the moon in Leo. This is a time of cultivation and the promise of fulfillment. The Aquarius-Leo polarity deals with the balance between all that is personal and all that is impersonal. The Leo moon is proud and intensely individual- not content with just being on the team. The sun also aligns with Jupiter during this full moon lending some optimism and courage. These new feelings of revelations are emotional ones as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth from our consciousness. It is time to explain ourselves and get things out of our systems. Two days after the Full Moon Mercury will go retrograde in Aquarius. Remember that Mercury retrograde is not a time to fear but it is a time to spend three weeks cleaning up all your old business. Don’t sign new contracts or projects until 2/26 when Mercury is out of the storm phase and moving direct again.
Try one of these brief Full Moon rituals tonight:
· Spend some time bathing in the moonlight even if it’s just 10 minutes (take advantage of witnessing this powerful partial eclipse full moon).
· Take a bath or longer shower and enjoy the cleansing properties of the water (water is always associated with the moon). As you cleanse your body make an intention to cleanse yourself of any unwanted energy.
· Sit a mason jar out with water and allow it to bathe in the moonlight. Add crystals like amethyst or rose quartz. Be sure to bring it in the morning before the sun has risen entirely if possible. You can use this enhanced water for your plants, bathing, or dump it in a ritual manor.
· Light a candle, cleanse your home and your own body with sage or Palo Santo. Spend a few brief minutes in meditation (pull some tarot cards if that’s your style).
