February 8: Full moon in Leo
AN OFFBEAT LUNAR MOOD
The moon is inconjunct Jupiter at 4:04 p.m.
The moon in tempestuous Leo wants everything now that Jupiter in steady Capricorn is asking us to have patience for. The planet of expansion and growth is helping us reach our goals and build our dreams this year with a steady and disciplined rhythm, so it’s important to ride out the restlessness and rebellion the Leo moon may inspire in us today. If it’s a treat or a reward we are craving, let’s try channeling it into a creative outlet, or an inspiring yoga class, rather than breaking the budget on momentary gratification.
The moon is inconjunct Neptune at 7:15 p.m.
Later this evening, the moon’s restless placement in Leo carries over to form another inconjunct aspect with Neptune in Pisces. Again, the impulsive, dramatic lunar mood of the moment feels out of phase with the long, gradual unfolding of the universal design. Though our passions and inspirations of the moment are but a small thread in the tapestry of collective purpose, we can take comfort in knowing we all have a part to play in the larger spiritual play in process.
Full moon in Leo (20 degrees) at 11:33 p.m.
Late tonight the moon in passionate Leo comes into perfect polarity with the sun in objective Aquarius, forming February’s full moon. This lunation is a culmination of our intentions, efforts, and focus—pointing to the end of a chapter that was set in motion six months ago when the moon was new in Leo. Whichever house Leo is on the cusp of in your birth chart will tell you what area of life is bearing new fruits of development. Since Leo is a fiery, courageous, and somewhat demonstrative sign, tonight we may feel very lively, social, and inspired.
