Full Moon February 2022 Astrology
The full moon on Wednesday, February 16, 2022, at 27°59′ Leo makes just one planetary aspect. But the challenging quincunx to Pluto is not the only important influence on the full moon. Venus conjunct Mars (0°0′58″) is a powerful influence because is exact only 2½ hours before the full moon. There are also four named fixed stars within the orb of the February 16 full moon.
Full Moon Meaning
Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Full Moon Secrets
Full Moon quincunx Pluto (0°33′) intensifies your emotions and makes them harder to control. Fears, worries, and secrets that have been buried deep in your subconscious can play on your mind and make you feel bad about yourself. Such intense feelings can escalate to a tipping point that results in an emotional outburst, mood swing, strange behavior, crisis, or relationship drama.
Sharing your complex feeling with a trusted loved one or a counselor will help avoid such emotionally painful experiences. It will also help you better understand yourself and relationship dynamics. You may discover a family secret that also helps you make sense of your own feelings and reactions.
Without conscious awareness and understanding of your intense emotions, you may experience guilt, jealousy, possessiveness, or conflict. You may be drawn to political activism, and extreme beliefs or ideologies. But this should be avoided unless you are prepared for criticism. This is a good full moon to uncover secrets, solve mysteries, explore taboo areas of sexuality, and better understand occult and esoteric subjects like astrology.
Full Moon Passion
Venus conjunct Mars (0°01′) is not only a powerful influence because of its exactness. The planets of love and sex stay within a one-degree orb from February 11 to March 12. This is because Venus stationed direct on January 29, and is moving at a similar rate to Mars.
This passionate conjunction increases your desire for intimate relations. Driven by an intense need for sexual satisfaction, you can become very direct in your search for a mating partner. But this primal urge to reproduce is not so raw and aggressive as to make others feel uncomfortable.
Your more tender and sensual side dominates, increasing your chance of finding romance. This compliments your raw passion and sex appeal to make you highly attractive. Increased charisma and popularity make socializing more enjoyable and exciting.
