You’ve heard the expression “once in a blue moon,” right? We use it to talk about a super rare event, referring to those times in the astrological calendar when we experience two Full Moons in the same month… like January 2018!
We began this year with a powerful Cancer Full Moon on 1/1. This set the tone for 2018 “officially” being the year of self-care, since Cancer is the mama of the Zodiac and the sign that shows us how to nurture and be tender with ourselves. Who doesn’t need a little bit of that right now?
And on 1/31 we followed this with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Leo. Rawwwr!
If Cancer rules self-care, then Leo takes it one step further into the realm of real self-LOVE. And juicy love-love too, since it’s also the sign that governs how we flirt, date, and express our sexuality. If you’ve followed the lunar omens and taken the beginning of the year to nest-down and recharge, tomorrow’s Full Blue Moon in Leo is here to coax you back out into the world.
Hopefully you got some rest this month. Cooked yourself some nourishing meals, put in some early nights, and spent time with true sister friends who make you feel safe and seen. These are some of the physical ways we can all tend to our emotional security. Recharge our batteries. Reconnect to an authentic sense of self.
Because now it’s time to turn up your inner light, and shine it onto the world.
Leo is ruled by the Sun. To feel into the energy of this Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse imagine that your heart is the Sun, and that the more you open it to the world, the more everyone around you benefits. It’s your own self-care practices that will help it to keep burning brightly, feeling fully charged.
The message of this Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is to be brave, be bold, and demand to be seen. Imagine you were going on a hot date with the whole of humanity! How would you show up? With a killer outfit and really great hair, obviously. And also, hopefully, with integrity. Meaning standing firmly in your truth.
Need a mantra? “This is who I am, and I am so proud of me.”
The Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse also ends a cosmic cycle that began with the 2017 Leo New Moon Eclipse on August 7, 2017. Think back to what was bubbling in your world last summer. Can you see how the ripple-effect of events unfolding then have led to a point of inner understanding of a situation you’re faced with now?
