On February 5th, there is a roaring Full Moon at 16 degrees Leo. The sign of the lion, fiery, fixed and ruled by the Sun. The Moon is in Leo, and the Sun is opposite, in the sign of Aquarius (an intellectual sign).

Leo stands for courage, confidence, loyalty, warmth, creativity and self-expression. The sign of the heart is about your deepest desires.

Uranus, the planet of radical change, is involved (square) with the Full Moon in Leo – expect the unexpected.

Those who do not move do not notice their chains.
Rosa Luxemburg

The cage

It is in our nature to want to expand, grow, evolve and go to place – in short – move.

And it is also in our nature to be challenged by feelings of not being good enough, fears and worries.

And those arise when we try to do things, move, grow and expand.

This Full Moon in Leo and Jupiter (expansion) approaching Chiron (wounded healer) invite us to confront those fears. To channel the confidence and courage of Leo to choose not to be bound by them.

Because courage is the choice and willingness to confront fear, pain, and uncertainty. And it is a choice you always have.

Out of the cage

Uranus’ quest for freedom will bring insights and sudden realisations to this Full Moon to help you break those chains.

What would you do if you knew you could solve any obstacle?

If you doubt you are capable. Just look at your past, and the times you overcame challenges you did not think you could.

The process is the same for every obstacle you meet.

Let that energy of confidence fill you up to guide you and awaken any desires you might have dismissed.

And keep feeding your lion’s energy with daily affirmations like I am capable and I choose courage.

If you want something you have never had,
You must be willing to do something that you have never done.

Thomas Jefferson

Letting go

Full moons are times of culmination and releasing what we are full of. And when the limits of our cage come to light, so you can find a way to trespass them.

What have you been working on since the New Moon in Leo back in July that you are now ready to release?

As the Moon wanes after the Full Moon, it is time to let go.

Use the end of this Moon cycle to let go of any fear that stops you from making that courageous choice in preparation for the next Moon cycle, Pisces, the last one of the astrological year.

And overcome with courage any fear that stops you from walking in confidence and pride in who you are.

Like the lion, embrace your uniqueness and desires – courageously.
