The Full Moon tonight highlights your need to resolve an inner struggle between your will and your thoughts, your ego and your intellect, your need to be at the center of things and your ability to share your ingenuity with others. Lest you think there is anything more pressing for your creative expression than to provide your community, groups or friends with your original insights, think again! This is the only focus of the Sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Leo in this Full Moon chart.
We are provided with a challenge from Mercury to Uranus to capture any inventive, intuitive or inspired ideas and to make note of them. Just because there is so much going on on the mental plane, that doesn't mean we can afford to let any possibilities slip by unacknowledged without investigating their potential. An approaching aspect between Saturn (responsibility) and Uranus (awakening), a trine, brings the harmony necessary to blend these two energies.
Yes, Mercury is still retrograde until Monday, the 25th, but this Messenger of the Gods is in a crucial alignment with the transformer, Pluto at 15 degrees of Capricorn. Mercury was first conjunct Pluto on December 19, 2015 and yesterday, Jan. 22nd, retrograded back over the same degree, where it will once again contact Pluto in direct movement for the third time on Jan. 29th. What does this mean? You can get to the bottom of something with your detective abilities, your probing mind or just plain stick-to-itiveness! By applying mental elbow-grease you can turn around a situation that has been plaguing you for awhile and find your way to clean up the past and prepare for a rebirth.
Let the Leo Full Moon shine on your inner strengths as you share your hopes and dreams with the people closest to you. Follow through on what needs to be done and work hard to achieve your goals - it is doable if you believe in yourself! The expansiveness of Jupiter in Virgo sitting on the Lunar North Node will help in deciding what to keep, what to discard and how to polish your skills, as well as providing you with the path to whole health for body, mind and soul. Time to roll up your sleeves and get ready to put your plans into action in a couple of weeks.
Remember to keep your head in the stars and your feet on the ground!
