On February the 3rd at 23:09 GMT we have a Full Moon in Leo. Time to strut our stuff and show the world just what we can do! Also, time to let our hair down and have some fun!
Leo is the big kid of the zodiac. A fire sign full of joy, innocence and spontaneity, Leo bursts onto the stage and cries:
I'm here! See me, hear me, love me!
When this outburst is healthy and wholesome, we cannot but love these guys! (It’s only when Leo goes out of balance - starved of love and affection - that they become too self-centered.)
Leo follows Cancer in astrology, and the latter is concerned with establishing a safe and nurturing environment for growth. If Cancer is the nourishing mother, then Leo is the bundle of joy - the divine child. With its parents taking care of the basics like shelter, food and drink, Leo doesn't have a care in the world other than to express itself and to bring happiness to the world and warmth to people’s hearts.
Leo is a fire sign, connected to our vitality and life-force. Ruled by the sun at the centre of our solar system Leo typically perceives itself as the centre of the universe. A natural performer, Leo instinctively knows it is special (a divine spark, as are we all!) and dares to express itself, often becoming adored in return! What's its secret?
Be bold, be brave enough to be your true self!
…tells us Queen Latifah born with Moon in Leo.
Leo rules the heart and spine. Even as you're reading this, take note of your posture. Are you hunched over? It's amazing what wonders the simple act of pulling back your shoulders and lifting your chest can work for your mood! So take pride in yourself: straighten up and stand tall! Breathe in deeply and expand your ribs! This also gives your heart room to grow and to …glow. Feel a smile coming on?
Leo rules the tarot card "Strength" and true strength comes from the heart. This full moon in Leo is the perfect time to draw on your inner strength and listen to your heart.
Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye. — H. Jackson Brown Jr.
This Leo full moon is excellently aspected: trine Uranus in Aries and widely conjunct Jupiter in Leo, it brings a swell of hope, joy and innocence, as we ride the cosmic wave of positive change and future aspiration! This is a sunny, potent and optimistic moment, which we may as well enjoy to the max, whatever the future may bring. So, go on, drink in the sunshine!
