Full Moons are natural oppositions when the Sun and Moon are 180 degrees apart. Oppositions ask us to recognize where we are out of balance. It is like the seesaw. When two people are on the seesaw one is grounded and the other is up in the air. But when they work together they find the fulcrum point and balance is found. If we are only focused on one end of the seesaw (whatever that represents in our life) we will either be up in the air or stuck on the ground. This Full Moon asks us to be centered in our compassionate Heart (Moon in Leo) as we create the new way by Uniting in Love (Sun in Aquarius).
There is a lot happening at this Lunation asking us to look toward the “new” but also letting go of the past that limits and restricts us. This Full Moon is a culmination of the intentions we set at the Capricorn New Moon of Jan 12/13. That New Moon was merged with Pluto (release, transformation, and rebirth) in Capricorn (our Soul Purpose Path). Pluto in Capricorn also symbolizes transformation of society. At this Leo Full Moon, Pluto and Venus are at 25 degrees Capricorn activating a new cycle of transformation based on what is of true value and importance and Loving Kindness. This cycle is active until March 2022. Later this evening the Sun and Jupiter meet at 09 degrees Aquarius (expansion of Cosmic Consciousness individually and collectively) and activate a new cycle of Uniting in Love and Compassion for All. That cycle is also with us until March 2022. On Jan 23 the Sun and Saturn met at 04 degrees Aquarius (focusing on being a Way Shower for the new way). That new cycle is with us until February 2022. It appears astrologically that we will still be learning to create the new way for the next year.
We do have some challenges at this Full Moon (the Universe loves to test us). Neptune in Pisces (illusion or illumination) has been square (finding new ways of doing things) the South Node in Sagittarius (patterns of the past and dogmatic thinking) and the North Node in Gemini (duality or unity) since Mid Jan. Neptune offers us the ability to see what is true, what is not true, and choose to release the illusion. This square will no longer be active at the beginning of February so use it to create your new path based on truth. The other challenge is Uranus at 06 degrees Taurus, Mars at 10 degrees Taurus, and Black Moon Lilith at 11 degrees Taurus (acting on what is of true value and importance) are all square (motivation for change and finding new ways of doing things) Saturn at 04 Aquarius, Sun/Jupiter at 09 degrees Aquarius (the new way) and also square the Earth/Moon at 09 degrees Leo (creating a new way guided by the compassionate Heart). This is a T Square (feeling backed into a corner). The mid-point of the Moon and Sun is 09 degrees Scorpio (release, transformation, and re-birth) giving us the doorway out of the T Square. But there is caution here. The asteroid Hidalgo is at 10 degrees Scorpio opposite Mars at 10 degrees Taurus. Here are some key themes for Hidalgo; self-assertion in defence of principles, fighting for ones beliefs, courage, dedication. The shadow side of this Asteroid is political involvement, radical movements, and rebellious activity. (Asteroid Goddesses by Demetra George). Let us all choose the positive.
This Full Moon is challenging but also filled with new opportunities to create the new way. Chiron, the healer, at 05 degrees Aries (living your authentic self) is trine the Moon (removal of obstacles) and sextiled by Saturn, Sun, and Jupiter (opportunity to walk a new pathway). Our Animal Totem guide for the Moon in Leo is Salmon, determination and perseverance to create the new, and for the Aquarius planets, Otter, companionship and joyful sharing. They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere. For all of us the Leo Moon is guided by Clan Mother She Who Heals. She teaches us to serve others with a compassionate heart using our healing abilities. She is the intuitive healer and the keeper of the healing arts. She teaches us to serve the truth. For the Aquarius Saturn, Sun, Jupiter it is Wisdom Keeper who guides us. She is the Mother of friendship, planetary unity, and mutual understanding. She teaches us to honour the truth. You can find their Medicine Stories in The 13 Original Clan Mothers by Jamie Sams.
One last note. Mercury turns retrograde at 26 degrees Aquarius on Jan 30 at 10.52 am EST and moves direct on Feb 20 at 11 degrees Aquarius. The glyph for Mercury is the circle of spirit over the cross of matter. Over the circle is a crescent moon reaching upward. As you revise and release during this retrograde be guided by your Intuitive Soul Wisdom.
