The full moon at 20 degrees Leo brings home our creative expansion.
With the Sun in Aquarius we are on the trajectory between our personal creative self expression and the way that expression can be shared and enhanced with the group.
Leo is personal and wants to shine on its own merit. Our evolution starts with our emotional body. The full Moon gives a radiant point of self reflection and projection.
With the opposition to the Sun in Aquarius we can say, how does my radiance, my special and unique and NECESSARY shininess benefit the whole?
What does my presence – the way I hold my head, the way I walk into a room, the way I share my story, benefit the whole?
Aquarius loves its friends, its community, its shared vision. Together, we can be electrifying. But it’s the differences in our gifts and abilities and histories joined together that make a whole that can energize and transform and galvanize.
We have our first Mercury retrograde cycle of the decade starting on Feb 17 at 12 degrees Pisces. Mercury will resume forward motion on 10 March at 28 Aquarius. All other planets are direct until 26 April when Pluto goes retrograde at 24 Capricorn.
We may want to consider how our day to day conversations affect us and others. Mercury rules short distance travel. We could forego driving to the shops and walk instead; using the time to be mindful of the air, the signs of the ever-changing natural reactions to temperatures and sunlight.
The Sun enters Pisces on February 18, so the Mercury retrograde will have an extra Neptunian cast. We have to opportunity to gaze into the dream space, the land of wish and hope and desire. We can reflect on how life is unfolding and the direction we are taking. We can adjust the wish list to fit where we are today. We may want different things than we did a month, a year, a lifetime ago. Also, the trajectory of our dreams may have shortened thanks to our increased awareness, abilities and knowledge.
As Pisces also addresses delusion, we want to see where our ideas are not reflecting the clear, true light of day. What we see in dim shadow at 3 am is very different once the sun comes up. The practical Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus May give the wake up call to what, indeed, is what.
Venus is the lower octave of Neptune. Venus will be moving through instinctual and action-oriented Aries until 6 March. As we reflect on what we want, Venus in Aries may give us a sudden brainstorm on how to get it. Chiron moves from Pisces to Aries on 19 February. We may see how our wounds and dashed or amended dreams have lead to new shots, fresh growth and stronger visions that will suit better who we are now.
Lots of love and happy dreams.💗
