The Moon is Full in Leo on January 28, 2021, at 2:16 PM EST.
The Full Moon in Leo marks the beginning of a new cycle.
The Moon is full when the Aquarius Sun opposes the Moon in Leo. The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time–a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
The Leo-Aquarius polarity deals with the balance between all that is personal (Leo) and all that is impersonal (Aquarius). The energy of the Leo Moon is creative self-expression and the boost to the individual ego that we receive through pleasure and romance, while the Aquarius Sun rules the group, more impersonal friendships, and objectivity. This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between romance and friendship, and between expressing ourselves in personal and impersonal ways.
The Leo Moon is proud and intensely individual–not content with simply being just one of the team. The Aquarius Sun, while individualistic as well, values independence and the “team.” The Full Moon illuminates this conflict. This Full Moon occurs when the Sun aligns with Jupiter, lending us optimism and courage to pursue what’s in our hearts, based on realism since it’s just recently moved away from alignment with Saturn. Still, it’s square Mars, suggesting some impulsiveness or combativeness to manage.
With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic illumination occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as there is a sense of emotions bursting forth into our consciousness. It’s time to express ourselves, and to let things out of our systems. Over the coming weeks, we will discover what this means for us. For now, we can’t sit on our feelings. We need to express them. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is not particularly rational as yet.
This phase of the Moon occurs at 9 degrees and 6 minutes of Leo, affecting people born with personal planets and points at approximately 5 to 13 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) most significantly.
