I invoke the spirit within me to assist my healing journey.
I am ready to detach from all remaining self-doubt.
I tend to healthy relationships beginning with the one with myself.
I cultivate the power in my core to illuminate my peaceful path ahead,
co-creating with the light of the Full Moon.
“When Leo holds space for the Full Moon, its like a ray of light shining down on all that feels dark and heavy in our lives. Leo is a fire sign that reminds us to connect with all that lights us up. It reminds us to connect with our inner fire, with our inner Sun, and to remember that life is for experiencing rather than controlling.
Leo is known to give strength, courage, and initiative. It encourages you to act on your emotional and passionate desires, especially regarding your intimate relationships and family. The fixed stars give the confidence to act boldly and take what you want but they also caution against acting too selfishly and ignoring the feelings of others.
Finding the right balance between bravado and sensitivity is the key to having your desires fulfilled.” (Tanaaz). “A full moon is always about coming into balance, finding ways to utilize the positive influences of the two opposing signs that are involved” (Pam Younghans). This full moon we are engaged with the creative duality of Leo, and its opposite sign, Aquarius…
“Leo is a fire sign, heart-based, eager to connect and to be creatively involved in the Now. Aquarius is an air sign, mentally based, independent, and more detached or progressive, focused on the future. This Full Moon asks us to find our balance between these two polarities, to be both engaged and present (Leo), but also to maintain a certain amount of detachment, that enables us to move and make progress.
The hard aspect to Vesta in earthy Taurus suggests that we’ll need to set aside our need for immediate gratification, to realize that the transformation that is underway is very deep, and not completed overnight.
