Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse
The Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is exact at 4:33 PM PST next Friday. This is the first of four eclipses culminating in a very powerful total Solar Eclipse on August 21 at 28.53° Leo. Eclipses are wild cards and times of intense energy. This radiant Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse calls us to shine forth with our innate talent and individuality. Leo rules the 5th house of creativity, fun, love affairs, and offspring, both physical and creative. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, trines the Sun and sextiles the Moon, both favorable aspects. This Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs at 22.28 ° Leo/Aquarius, with Jupiter at 23.6° Libra, which makes the Jupiter aspects both tight and applying. An applying aspect in an event chart has more impact as the energy is on its way in, rather than on its way out. Uranus, at 21.21° Aries, the planet that issues a categorical imperative to be your authentic self, is sextile the Sun and trine the Moon. We had a similar configuration in the 2015 Leo Full Moon, with Jupiter then conjunct the Moon in Leo and opposite the Sun, and Uranus trining and sextiling them both. I know that this had a great impact on me as I self published two of my novels, Uncurtained Window, and The Man-Eater, that year. Jupiter was conjunct my Mercury, ruler of writing, that year. So we have a Full Moon on the Leo/Aquarius axis, which alone would be an impetus to express your most authentic self, combined with a powerful outer planetary configuration (Jupiter/Uranus) associated with brilliant breakthroughs. Jupiter goes Retrograde tonight at 10:52 PM, this turn brings it in line to oppose Uranus exactly again on March 2nd. Jupiter opposite Uranus brings surprising insights and sudden breakthroughs.
Void Moon Periods and More
The first troublesome Void begins Monday, at 2:53 PM, when the Gemini Moon opposes Saturn. The Moon is then void-of-course in Gemini until entering its home sign of Cancer at 11:03 PM. This makes for a lost Monday afternoon and evening, so get started early. The other difficult Void arrives Friday night late on the West Coast, at 9:52 PM and is over early the next morning when the Sun moves from Leo to Virgo at 5:52 AM. Void Leo Moon, especially after the Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, can cozy up and engage in creative activity. Mercury trades staid Capricorn for free-spirited Aquarius on Tuesday at 1:35 AM. Look for innovative solutions and quirky ideas. The Sun exactly sextiles Uranus on Thursday at 1:16 PM fueling your inner revolutionary and preparing you for the next day’s Full Moon, and finally the super lucky Sun/Jupiter trine is exact on Saturday at 7:25 AM. Have a wonderful week.
