Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Leo ~ January 20th
Tonight (and early tomorrow morning for East Coasters) is the Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Leo. Eclipses represent sea changes, often bringing illumination to what needs to be transformed in our lives. Lunar Eclipses always join a Full Moon, and stimulate the shadow areas of our psyche, emotions and inner-world, bringing attention to these deeply sensitive areas. It is not unusual to FEEL intensively during this time. If you can embrace your feelings and emotions, whatever is illuminated for you now, without judgment, there can be a great transformation and awakening.
Today’s Eclipse/Full Moon is in the sign of Leo. Leo is a fire sign, and rules the realm of self-expression, creativity and unique individuality, bringing the spotlight to how we give our light. We all have special gifts and talents, and Leo asks us to celebrate this! The Leo Full Moon is directly opposite the Aquarius Sun, bringing the expressions of Aquarius--unity, inspiration, higher consciousness and service to humanity—into the picture. This Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon asks us to integrate these two polarities, which could be described as: Celebrating your individuality, in the service to the greater good. Powerful stuff!
Take time in the next few days (we feel Eclipses for days, even weeks before and after) to commune with your light--who you are on the deepest of levels--and to let go of what no longer serves your true essence. Rituals and meditative practices are especially powerful during eclipses. To understand more about where you will experience these energies, look at the house in your astrological chart that is ruled by Leo.
