At 12:45pm AEST Sunday 24 January the full moon in Leo makes her grand entrance. Full moons are a time when energies culminate and when things come to fruition. Heightened sensitivity, emotions and psychic abilities are all enhanced under this moon phase. Leo is a fixed fire sign that is ruled by the Sun and covers creativity, individuality, playful self-expression, love affairs, children and drama… and, just like the Sun, Leo loves to shine.
The full moon in Leo is ideal for releasing blocks to creativity and self-expression, letting go of unnecessary drama and surrendering anything that no longer serves us.
When the moon is full it illuminates and accentuates our feelings, emotions and inner self. There are many layers to this full moon, and a need to be courageous as we grow in new ways all while allowing the process of shedding and release to occur.
Change can be a daunting process for so many, yet it is essential for continued growth and development. It is through this process of change that so much more can be realised about ourselves and others. We can use our creative skills and abilities to not only create beautiful objects, but to also find creative ways to solve old problems and heal old wounds. By taking action in more fun and inspired ways we will be amazed by the difference it makes and the changes that take place more easily.
Self-worth is a common issue to arise during the full moon in Leo. Believing in oneself, feeling that we are enough or that we have the talent and ability to succeed in pursuing our dreams. Know that this is normal, yet we can use this energy more positively if we direct it towards positive self-assertion rather than being tempted by old ways and old belief systems.
Issues relating to children often arise under this moon cycle so it’s the perfect opportunity to reflect upon our inner needs and quietly converse with our inner child. For this is often the source of inner tension we experience yet also where miracle healing occurs. Honour and nourish your inner child rather that ignoring it. Play, laugh, have fun, be spontaneous and mix things up a bit.
Love and affairs of the heart also come into focus at this time. We are reminded to take pride in ourselves and in the life we have created, but must guard against allowing pride and ego to stand in the way of peaceful relationships. It is an act of far greater courage to admit when we are struggling or when we could have done something better than it is to hold on or dig our heels in about an issue. Peace comes from knowing that only love is real and being right has nothing to do with it.
Tonight put pen to paper and write down that which you wish to release from your life. Connect with the element of fire by lighting a candle and allowing the flames of the fire to purge this from your heart and mind. Fire illuminates that which we hide or suppress (fears and doubts) and reminds us that it’s never too late to start again. It is only by releasing the old that we can make way for the new. We can use this time to take inventory of our life and be mindful of where we are on our journey and what we have created.
Release the energy of control and fear and welcome the energy of love and faith, fully trusting the Universe will help us to create a new reality for our highest and greatest good.
There is an easy way to do things and a hard way, so let’s not make life so complicated. The planets are lined up for us to take that leap of faith and carry this through into every stage of our life. It’s time to find balance in our life not shut it down. As we light our own torch we shine bright and become torch bearers for others.
Sending love and blessings to you ….when you believe in yourself magic happens!
