“You don’t understand. The feeling of love just isn’t there.”

“Then love her. If the feeling isn’t there, that’s a good reason to love her.”

“But how do you love when you don’t feel love?”

“My friend, love is a verb. Love -- the feeling -- is a fruit of love, the verb. So love her. Serve her. Sacrifice. Listen to her. Empathize. Appreciate. Affirm her. Are you willing to do that?”

--Steven Covey

Leo is a wildly magnanimous Fire sign, burning with courage and heart. During the full Moon on Saturday, January 26, we're being called to look at love as a verb. Is our love strong enough? How do we love? Leo rules the heart and the spine, and you can check into how both are feeling in your body during this lunation to see how you are doing in the Leo area of your life.

The mantra for Leo is, “I will”. Is your heart aligned with your will? Do your actions reflect what you love and how you love? In the tarot, Leo is connected to the archetypes of Strength and The Sun. Strength reminds us to face our fears and willingly put our heads in the mouth of the lion -- confront that which terrifies us most.

“Always do what you are afraid to do.”

-- Emerson

Leo also teaches us that we must be loving and gentle to the animal side of our nature. Honor and tame it rather than force or repress our more primitive instincts. This full Moon is in a supportive aspect to the planet of rebellion and unexpected breakthrough: Uranus. Are we ready to take our ability to love ourselves, others and our lives to the next level? Now is the time to look at any barricades in your heart that still hold you back from loving with wild abandon.

This full Moon is also in a positive aspect to lucky Jupiter, strengthening the courage to take a huge leap of faith based on our heart’s desire. Jupiter will come out of retrograde on the 30th, so consider this the precursor to a new phase of greater expansion and consciousness around the realm of love. Our need to feel special and receive a greater amount of attention and adoration is especially highlighted now. Give your loved ones the special treatment they so adore before pride gets stepped on.

When we are connected to our hearts, generosity flows naturally and abundantly. A good teaching to remember during this time is: the only thing missing from any situation is what you are not giving.
