On February 16th we have the regal Leo Full Moon. It’s time to celebrate and shine your light for the world to see. Leo’s love getting attention and being in the spotlight and this full moon is cause for us all to celebrate.
Tips for How the Leo Full Moon Can Affect You Personally
Everyone has the Leo flair in one, or more areas of their chart.
Here are a few areas of your chart to look for:
- Look to your 5th house (the house Leo rules) - what planets, or points are located here?
- What house is your own Sun located (the Sun is the ruler of Leo).
- As the Sun is currently transiting Aquarius (ruled by the planet Uranus) all themes related to Aquarian and Uranian energy are especially highlighted. What planets and points are located in your 11th house and what house is the Aquarius Sun currently transiting?
Mars Conjunct Venus
Today Mars and Venus (the lovers of the zodiac) will exactly conjunct at 15° Capricorn and will remain conjunct until mid-March when they will finally begin to move apart.
This is a VERY rare opportunity for joining our hearts and will to take action on what’s most important for you and our world.
Now is the time for you to go for what you love most! Do not hold back.
The joining of Mars and Venus for such a long time (usually the pair enjoy peak conjunction for only a day or two) is one of the key harmonizing forces at work this year.
Align and engage yourself with these harmonizing forces to bring more feeling of satisfaction and fulfillment to your life.
Pay especial attention to what has been surfacing for you this year. Are you pursuing, or contemplating, new passion projects you’ve maybe put on hold? Now is the time to reinvigorate what you’ve possibly kept on the back burner for far too long.
Jupiter Sextile Uranus
Sextile energy always brings opportunity that must be acted upon. The fruits available now for the picking seem low hanging.
Jupiter is transiting Pisces and Uranus is in Taurus. The pair will Sextile at 11° of Pisces and Taurus. The number 11 is a master number and represents a portal of truth. It is time when the potential of instant manifestation is amplified.
Later in the day as the Full Moon slips into Virgo she will Oppose the Jupiter Sextile Uranus (further activating the opportunity available) AND Trine the Mars and Venus Conjunction in Capricorn.
As always, how these planetary giants will be affecting you will depend upon how they are aspecting your own personal planets and points.
Key themes highlighted now include compassion and revolution with the meeting of heart and will to bring about the action needed to make the most of the opportunities available.
The moon’s transit in Virgo (attention to detail) and Venus and Mars in Capricorn (a reliable plan for setting the foundation) omen that much can come of the projects being realized now.
Aquarian Themes Amplified
All things related to Aquarius are amplified now. Your thinking mind is operating at warp speed. Fresh visions for the future can get the grounding needed to prevail far into the future. Saturn, now at 17° Aquarius, lends further stabilizing force to the mix of energies activated now.
Foundations that can endure far into the future can be realized. This is a significant time of fruition.
Hopefully, a balance can be struck that can result in the perfect mix of the volatile and revolutionary energies of Uranus, along with Jupiter’s expansive nature. Jupiter in Pisces can potentially expand feelings of compassion. There’s also the potential with Jupiter’s transit through Pisces for the expansion of illusions, false dreams and promises. If things seem too good to be true, be sure to do your research and check credentials and sources to ensure credibility.
Scientific breakthroughs, re-imagined technology, innovation and the internet are all highlighted.
Also, themes related to Pisces and Neptune are greatly expanded while Jupiter transits Pisces until May 10th when he enters Aries. The peak of the confusion, as well as potential for realizing your dearest dreams, occurs on April 12th when Jupiter Conjuncts Neptune at 23° Pisces.
It’s especially important to stay grounded and do your due diligence and keep things real.
Leo Full Moon
Full moon’s bring the realization and fulfillment of dreams, but also potential for loss. It can be a time of ending and parting of ways.
The Leo Full Moon ruled by the Sun is the most creative fulfillment Moons of the entire year. Leo represents the King or Queen within you. Where your Sun is located represents your Divine will force to exist and create something of your life.
Leo's energy is romantic, innocent and childlike. Leo's love pursuing past times, fun and entertainment, as well as taking risks. Leo is the sign of making investments and taking a gamble, especially on creative pursuits.
As always, how you will experience the Leo Full moon as an individual depends upon the conversation it’s having with transiting planets in your natal chart.
Be assured though that the tremendous forces at work for revolutionary change at a global level will play out in some 'dramatic' way in your own personal life.
The lover’s (Venus and Mars) joining hands on the day of the Leo Full Moon is a good omen for the realization of creative pursuits.

S/he oversees all of the elemental forces, air, earth, fire and water.
S/he inspires us to the causes of environmentalism and environmental justice. Ariel assists with healing and protecting all of the natural world, i.e. wildlife, animals and plants.
Call upon Ariel when you need courage to face any challenges to doing the right thing, especially choices that concern the protection of the natural world and the environment. S/he can help open your heart to receiving more love and inspire you to acts of courage. Your acts of courage serve to support and inspire others to perform similar acts of courage.
Ariel can help with manifestation power, abundance and good luck. S/he can help you make the most of your opportunities with the creative ideas, resources and connections needed to realize your Divine dreams.
Petition your heart and mind with the following affirmations:
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.
You can also make up your own personalized petitions that feel most suitable for you at this time.
- Thank you for helping me have the courage to stand up for what is right in all spheres of my life, but especially in regards to protecting the natural world.
- Thank you for guiding me in ways that help me make the most of my opportunities.
- Thank you for helping me keep my heart open, so that I attract the support I need when faced with doubt and opposition.
- Thank you for helping me turn obstacles into stepping stones.
- Thank you for helping me focus on love and service rather than petty concerns.
- Thank you for helping boost my courage and confidence.
Now, be still and silent as you absorb the light of Ariel’s healing presence. Allow Ariel to do the work necessary to bring more environmental awareness and prosperous circumstances into your life.
Let any worry or concern you may have been feeling quietly melt away. Empty yourself completely of any feeling of discomfort you may have been feeling. Just remain peaceful and calm.
Take as long as needed to complete this meditation. Repeat as needed whenever you feel the need for the courage and confidence needed to realize your dreams.
