The moon will be full in flashy, heart-centered Leo on Friday February 10th at 4:33PM PST. The lunar energy of the day has the potential for drama, with a grand trine in the fire signs with the moon in Leo, cool and restrictive Saturn in Sagittarius, and erratic and electric Uranus in Aries.
This full moon is also a partial lunar eclipse. Astronomically, eclipses occur with the sun or moon is 12 degrees or less from the lunar notes. In this case, the sun and moon are 11 degrees from the lunar nodes in Virgo and Pisces. When we think of what we see when an eclipse occurs – we see an astronomical body pass through a shadow, in whole or in part. The light dims, and then the light returns. In this case, it is the light of the moon – our emotional self – that dims and then returns. Things look different than they normally do, we get a chance to see a slightly different perspective.
Astrologically, the energy of an eclipse works in the same way. Something that we normally see is hidden for a time, and then it returns, and in the space of time that the light is gone, we have the opportunity to see things differently. Eclipses come in pairs, and they fall about 6 months apart. Often themes that arose into view during the last eclipse cycle finish playing out at the next cycle. We close a chapter, put something in the past, and step into a new chapter in our lives, consciously or unconsciously.
This moon is part of a grand trine in the fire signs with the moon in Leo, Saturn in Sagittarius, and Uranus in Aries. Uranus is joined by both Mars and Venus in Aries – there is a lot of potential for movement.
Wth the sun and mercury in Aquarius, look for big ideas to finally be ready to take flight. Something that began to brew within you last Fall is ready to be shared. Something is ready to be born, it can no longer be held back.
To pinpoint where in your life these daring illuminations and turning points may be occurring, check your chart and find the house where 22-23 degrees Leo and Aquarius fall.
Enjoy the day!
