Needing more JOY in your life?! Harness some of today's Leo Full Moon energy to play a little more, express your creativity or enjoy a special weekend with your loved one(s). The Moon moved into Leo this morning, after an 18 hour VOC period that began yesterday with an inactive Moon in Cancer. You may have noticed just having to go with the flow because your afternoon and evening didn't go the way you had hoped. That is what happens when the Moon makes its' last aspect to another planet, before leaving one zodiac sign and moving into the next. Now you have a green light for making some fun plans for the rest of your weekend as Leo Moon opposes the Sun in Aquarius at 11:38pm tonight.
Let's not forget the Sun in Aquarius opposing that Moon, as it provides the necessary polarity of this lunar phase. When Aquarian energy is present, so is inventiveness, genius and revolutionary thinking, which is best expressed through group dynamics. While a person born under this Fixed Air sign can be a very unique individual, their outgoing and friendly nature can shine when connecting with others, especially in human rights organizations, philanthropic endeavors and by disseminating cutting-edge information.
Some of you may think of Aquarius as being a Water sign, because of it's symbolism as "the water bearer". However, it is indeed an Air sign, whose glyph of two wavy lines, one above another, represents the flow of energy, knowledge or information they have collected for distribution to the collective. Expect new ideas or solutions to old problems; it often takes fresh insight and someone willing to think outside the box to come up with unique ways of dealing with issues that have bogged us down. The free flow of ideas and exchange of insights receives even more juice when brainstorming in a group. Sometimes an individual may have an original idea that they don't share because they think it is too out there, but the perspective of others can allow them to express themselves through the process of communication which then brings a more balanced approach to a new solution.
Speaking of communication, astrological pun inferred ... giant Jupiter is about to go Direct on the 30th in Mutable Gemini, after a four month retrograde. This is good news for everyone who is studying, planning an event, needing to communicate something or just make new connections. Again, adaptability and curiosity are keywords of Gemini, but changing one's mind too much could be a detriment here, also, avoid gossip and hearsay. My rule of thumb (for Jupiter in Gemini), is to gather information, do an outline of what you want to say, check your information for validity and coherence, then write, say or otherwise share your thoughts. Writers take note - you have until June 25th to tweak those chapters in your book, after that, Jupiter enters the watery Cardinal sign of Cancer and the focus shifts entirely!
This is a great time of year to make new acquaintances and get involved in group activities, especially with those people of like-mind or similar goals. However, that is not to imply that you need to follow a similar path to anyone else or even repeat your own steps. It is the conscious connecting to sources of new information that will increase awareness and elevate the collective consciousness. If you have a friend you'd like to get to know better, perhaps you could suggest joining a class together to explore spiritual growth or learn some computer techniques. Whatever you focus on with the Sun in Aquarius and Jupiter in Gemini can increase understanding and enhance your relationships on many levels. Reach out, touch someone with your interest, share ideas and explore new territory.
and remember... while keeping your head in the stars, to also keep your feet on the ground!
