Leo Full Moon – February 8-9, 2020
It’s been a wild and wooly couple of weeks. Lots of stops and starts, spinning, switching back and lurching forward again. Very little is clear except that very little is clear. But that’s how it really is anyway. You just never know. We may think that we do – but truthfully, we really don’t.
The changes and upheavals that have confronted us in this short intro to 2020 will not fade into the background. Not yet. There’s more to come. And there’s a lot to look forward to. The commonly accepted notion that the past and present informs the future will be turned on its head. We will see that it’s the other way around. The Future informs the Present, clarifies the Past, and draws them forward. It is the Future that calls the shots every time. Have you felt the inevitability of a person, place, thing or situation drawing you forward – insisting and compelling you to follow that instinct, impulse, yearning, and desire to move with that specific energy?
Have you demurred or downright refused to meet it? It’s time to give it a second look. The changes brought about by the conjunction of Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn that will mark this year will insist that we carry the lessons of the January 10, lunar eclipse and the reverberations of the first Saturn-Pluto conjunction of January 12 forward; taking ownership of and responsibility for our allegiance to our deepest and most profound visions and instincts. The Future is not just calling – it’s no longer “optional”.
Aquarius is forward-looking, innovative, collaborative, and in tune with the collective consciousness in ways that perhaps some of the other signs are not. He sees the past, present and future clearly and without sentimentality. The Full moon in Leo opposes the Sun in Aquarius this weekend highlighting and contrasting the strength and sovereignty of the personal Leo self and the power and momentum of the collective Aquarian masses. One is not better that the other. They are each an aspect and an out-growth of the other. Together they form the necessary polarity, connecting the heart (Leo) and the mind (Aquarius) as they set about incorporating the past, present, and future of our planet and all sentient beings that dwell here with us on Earth.
On February 16, Mercury will retrograde at 13 degrees Pisces. He will station direct again at 28 degrees Aquarius on March 9. This is a great time to get clear about the whole Past, Present, Future thing. It’s also an opportunity to share strategies and information about the Past (what got you here), the Present (where you are now) and the Future (what is pulling you forward). On February 20, Jupiter and Neptune will sextile at 18 degrees of Capricorn/Pisces respectively. This is the first of 3 meetings this year. The second is on July 27, and the third on October 11. These will be times of heightened intuition and clear seeing. This aspect harkens back to their last conjunction in 2009. Again, it’s a good time to review your past, present, and future trajectory.
The Leo Moon shines with an incredibly bright white light this weekend. The Sun is always shining. It shines 100 percent of the time at full 100 percent strength. It is the past and the present but above all it is our future – our shining super-star. We would be nothing without the Sun. Feel the future as he reaches out to you. Do not doubt or be afraid. Take his hand and let him pull you forward to your destiny.
