Leo Full Moon - Invitation and a Demand

By January 23, 2013

Follow me on:

A Leo Full Moon is on the way (January 26th) -- a peak that's a warmer for what's gold and golden in our lives. It's a fixed fire sign that is known to be self-centered, generous, prideful, highly creative and all of the above. Where is 7 degrees Leo (and Aquarius for Sun) in your chart? With so much pulling each of us out of ourselves and our own story, this calls us back to the heart of who we are. That makes it a fruitful (Leo shines at the peak of the summer) time to act or realize what inspires your emerging, evolving self.

It's a riddle of a chart with both Saturnian (structuring) and Uranian (breaking through) energies in abundance. What I'm intuiting further, is that the real treasure is found in the individual journey. And that by following the signs and synchronicities of that calling (Leo), we make a priceless contribution to the whole ( Aquarius).

A big theme I see here, is guarding the psyche/soul (are these the same thing?) against what derails, ties up energy, distracts, mesmerizes. This is where the discipline of Saturn comes in -- to redraw boundaries and claim a sacred, inspired inner atmosphere. Like sage-ing yourself, and learning tools of psychic protection from what's toxic in the environment.

The Leo Full Moon then can be a time to commit to being self-centered, in a healthy way. To meet the demand of Saturn (Scorpio) to do the healing necessary to move out of drama and trauma, and into the creative life of your dreams. The conflicted energies may make it wise to wait to act, as energies shift and do their thing. Jupiter goes direct on the 30th, and at this time, it can feel that much falls into place.

Many thanks for this, dearest Molly! As usual you tap into much of what I’m experiencing at the moment, and love this, “To meet the demand of Saturn to do the healing necessary to move out of drama and trauma, and into the creative life of your dreams”. Feels like I might be loosening up my ancient writers block at last. And thanks for the good advice! xxx

Great to see you stop by Liz – a familiar and kind commenter…very appreciated! Funny you should mention writer’s block. I’m sensing a falling away of some kind of veil/membrane that has been a barrier to awareness — and maybe this is Saturn Scorp’s influence — and am sure this will lead to freer self-expression. I’ve had this kind of experience before, but must say, it’s always kind of disillusioning to see just how limiting the psychic frame has been. But with these creative blocks, for me, it’s often a case of being ready for the next level, somehow earning it — though I wish it would speed up, and in some ways it is!

Molly, every once in a while you write something that feels like the narrative of my life. There’s something incredibly wonderful about someone being able to make into words what I’ve lived and felt over the last few days.
