Every 29½ days, the Moon goes full in the sign directly opposite the Sun, currently in Leo. Full Moons are an exercise in self-examination and this full Moon, in Aquarius, provides an opportunity for contemplating the conflict between “me” and “us” mentalities. Good timing, considering all that is happening in society today. Instead of the “Look at me, look at me” energy of Leo, Aquarius delivers a hefty collectivist attitude. Are you truly able to consider the needs of others in your day-to-day wanderings? Or do you tend toward narcissism?
The Leo energy of self-centeredness needs to be tempered by the equitable machinations of the Aquarian Age, heralded by social justice and sweeping progressive and personal change. Then peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars. Let the sunshine in.
