Full Moons always mark a time of celebration.
They are also times of release and letting when what is old and worn out and no longer serves your greater good, gets released. You may decide to throw away a once previous thought ‘good’ idea in favor of a truly ‘brilliant’ new idea that’s even better that will bring you a more robust and resilient future. These are the potentials at a Full Moon.
The Leo Full Moon is the Actor/Actress or King/Queen of the zodiac. A Leo Moon can actually soak up all the light and energy in a room and lead with a ‘Me First’ role, or perform a more receptive role, as is the more natural characteristic role of the Moon which is Feminine and Receptive.
A Leo Moon can be one of the most immature, insecure and needy of all the Zodiac Moons. In fact, the Leo Moon has a reputation for being one of the most codependent moons of the zodiac, along with Libra and Cancer.
A mature Leo Moon is naturally altruistic and easily able to share the spotlight with his/her subjects. Remember Leo is a royal sign. It is ruled by the Sun, the center of our Solar System. So, without maturity a Leo Moon can be a despot.
Now you have an opportunity to release previous less mature notions and celebrate a victory by transcending selfish motives and me-first agendas. Let go of the need to control and manipulate to gain or retain power at all costs.
This particular Leo Full Moon is perfectly poised to help leaders in the United States and on the World stage to release petty, selfish concerns for the good of humanity.
The 9° Leo Full Moon is almost exactly Opposite Saturn which is Conjunct the Sun and Jupiter in Aquarius and forming a T-Square with Uranus and Mars. Venus (representing what you love personally) also Conjuncts Pluto (representing the power to transform and heal). The potent combination of planets at the Leo Full Moon spells extreme tension for a correction and breakthrough to take place. Things come to a head and must unequivocally change with this aspect. There is no other choice, but to change if we’re to move forward.
BTW: Mars exactly Conjunct Uranus on January 20th, the Inauguration Day of Joe Biden as the newly elected President of the United States.
Also notably, Mercury has been slowing down and will Station Retrograde on Saturday, January 30th at 7:51am PT. Mercury entered his Retrograde Shadow on January 16th at the 11° Aquarius the point where Saturn, the Sun and Jupiter will all be within orb of Conjunction at the Leo Full Moon. This 11° Aquarius point is especially significant. Astrologer Dane Rudyar calls this the point in which the entire orbit of Neptune occurs, meaning it is an extraordinarily ‘karmic’ point of destiny. Mercury will Station Direct at this 11° point on Saturday, February 20th at 4:52pm PT.
This Leo Full Moon is an important culmination point for you and our world. Make the most of this powerful day by celebrating your victories since this past summer and releasing anything that has burdened you. You can set your sails for new destinations with this Leo Full Moon. Letting go is the key to making the most of your opportunities at this time.

You have an opportunity to transcend old karmic patterns and habits that have created conflict for you both personally and collectively at a global level. A revolution on the physical plane is taking place. Evolving consciousness for all of humanity is at the heart of this upheaval.
Can we set aside our differences and work for the common good?

Leo Full Moon Meditation
The Leo Full Moon is a perfect time to celebrate your wins and let go of your losses. It is a time when you can release guilt and grievances and the need to control circumstances in your life. You cannot control outer events. Engaging in the need to control in order to repress your natural feelings of fear and anger is not a winning strategy. It’s ultimate aim, to make you feel empowered when you may feel vulnerable, is not a tactic you can practice if you want to experience a peaceful and happy life.
No matter your circumstances there is always something to be grateful for. Gratitude and thanksgivings shifts your mindset immediately to a more positive and resilient state. When you expect good things you more readily see opportunities that a negative state of mind can overlook.
Perform your Meditation anytime starting from the time of the Full Moon up until the First Quarter Waning Moon in Scorpio on February 4th at 9:37am PT.
What you will need:
- A white candle
- Essential oil or blend - use one of the recommended oils, or blend of oils
Make sure you are in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed.
Light your white candle and inhale the scent of your essential oil. You can also scent your space prior to your meditation using an aroma diffuser.
Gaze into the candle flame as you begin to breathe in fully and deeply and exhale any tension. Continue inhaling the scent of your oil and releasing any tension for 1-5 minutes.

To set the tone of your Leo Full Moon meditation start your meditation with the serenity prayer:
“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.”
Petition your heart and mind with the following:
Take time between each appeal to drink in and absorb the response by your heart and mind to fulfill your request. Allow yourself the time needed to fully engage in and experience the results of this meditation.
- “Help me align with the higher streams of thought in my daily life.”
- “Help me let go of lower frequency and burdensome thoughts such as worry, fear, guilt and shame.” List your own particular recurring negative thoughts that you’d like to release.
- “Assist me to cultivate thoughts of beauty, love and peace in my daily life.”
- “Help me to stay focused on and celebrate the good things that happen in my life.”
- “Assist me to cultivate trust and faith in the goodness of life.”
- “Help me to know and see that I live in a friendly universe that responds to fulfill my every need as it arises and never doubt that I am loved and cared for.”
Now, be still and silent as you rest in the beauty, light and love of your heart and mind united through this meditation.
Allow the alignment of your heart and mind in beauty, light and love to bring balance to your life. Empty yourself completely of any feeling of discomfort you may have been feeling. Just allow yourself to remain peaceful and calm.
Take as long as needed to complete this meditation. Repeat as needed whenever you feel the need to immerse yourself in the higher energies of the light of love, beauty and peace. The constant remembrance of the higher frequencies of thought always available to you will help you live a more peaceful, happy and abundant life.
