Leo Full Moon
The Leo Full Moon is exact at 5:46 PM PST today at 3.29°. This radiant Full Moon is a call to shine forth with your innate talent and creativity. Leo rules the 5th house of creativity, fun, love affairs, and offspring; both physical and creative. Last year the Leo Full Moon was conjunct Jupiter and trine Uranus. What an inspiring time. I know I self published two of my novels largely inspired by that Leo Full Moon. This year the Leo Full Moon is not directly aspected by any other planets. We do have a lot going on in this Leo Full Moon’s chart, however, it is not tied in to the Sun/Moon opposition. I refer to Mercury Retrograde at 15.09° Capricorn conjunct Pluto at 15.50° and squaring Uranus at 16.55° Aries. This very tight square, in combination with Mercury Retrograde, makes for a powerful imperative from the past. However, there can be such a frenzied pursuit of plans that it results in nervous collapse. We are often the only thing holding ourselves back from living our dreams. Use this last direct hit from the Uranus/Pluto square to tear yourself loose from self-imposed limitations, but take care not to exhaust yourself.
Venus in Capricorn
Venus enters Capricorn at 12:31 PM today. I wrote about this sign shift yesterday, but there is always more to say. Capricorn is a cardinal sign, which means it likes to initiate action. It is ruled by Saturn. Saturn is the principle of inhibition and concentration. Saturn defines and limits possibilities. It is an earth sign, which means physical manifestation. All of this leads us to expect that love and art will take a turn toward commitment and responsibility. And, since Saturn is also age, an interest in more mature partners, or classical art may manifest. The goat is an ambitious climber so this sign shift could increase your desire for artistic recognition.
