Full Moon in Leo – January 2013
The Full Moon in Leo on January 26, 2013 at 11:38pm EST (8:38pm PST) encourages us to live life to its fullest. Leo brings opportunities to be more expressive, loving, playful, and creative. However, Leo also spurs drama, and it may be difficult to determine an honest emotional reaction from a performance.
The Moon is full when a natural opposition occurs between the Sun and Moon. With the Full Moon in Leo, the Sun is in Aquarius. Aquarius encourages us to explore intellectual pursuits, while Leo helps us follow our heart. You may feel torn between the following your head or heart.
Emotions intensify when the Moon is full. With Leo ruling the heart there is a tremendous opportunity to release emotional pain, especially grief. Let go of the “would have’s and should have’s,” as well as any pain associated with relationships. Instead of resenting painful experiences, look at the lessons you learned. Then ask Universe to assist you in releasing grief and replacing it with unconditional love and joy. It’s not always easy to forgive, but holding onto resentment only hurts you. Find forgiveness for yourself and others so you resolve the past. Until you do, it may be difficult to move forward and truly manifesting what you want.
Lao Tzu said, “Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
Since Leo is the actor, emotions may heat up with drama around the Full Moon. The heart may be open to new experiences and romance or exaggerate self-importance. Overcome any drama and ego-driven reactions by finding ways to stay grounded and focused.
The opportunity for healing with this Full Moon is big. This Leo Full Moon provides a nurturing, mothering quality to it. You may be inspired to release bad habits, resolve emotional wounds, or release addictions. Listen to your heart. You may feel the support you’ve been craving to help you now.
Expand and honor yourself with the Full Moon in Leo. With the focus on the heart, do something to show love and appreciation for you!
