Full Leo Moon – DREAM & SHINE

The full moon this month is in Leo (opposite the sun in Aquarius) on the 9th at 7:33 GMT. In my last post I asked you to look at foundations and create new firmer footings. This full moon is a beautiful chance to glimpse, and dream into being, those kinds of supporting and supportive relationships that previously would have remained firmly in the imagination only.

These relationships may (probably) be out of the realm of what feels usual or comfortable. Growth often requires us to move outside of our comfort zones. If that sounds scary, it is possible that this growth can take place at a distance, through dream work, or even via internet connections. Communication is changing. We are changing.

First Quarter Taurus Moon & Candlemas/ Imbolc – TAKE CARE

For a short month (though not as short as often, as it is a leap year this year) there is a lot happening in February. Right at the start of the month, on the 2nd 1:42 GMT, the moon reaches the first quarter point, in Taurus. This moon is in opposition to the Scorpio ascendent, and, with Uranus sitting fairly close to it too, I feel like some disruption to our sense of security (collective and personal) is likely. This might be in the form of health scares or financial instability, or both.

It would be pertinent to pay attention to the foundations relationships are built on, and how that impacts the dynamics in that relationship. Underlying issues might rear their heads now. That is a good thing, though it might not feel like it at the time. More secure and loving footings are needed.

“Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a ‘hot mess’ or having ‘too many issues’ are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.”
