Leo Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse
The Leo Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse at 11°37′ Leo is exact at 5:27 AM PT next Wednesday. This is the first of two Total Lunar Eclipses this year. The second one is on July 27th at 4°45′ Aquarius. Eclipses are wild cards and times of extreme energy. This radiant Leo Full Moon Total 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. This Full Moon is a Blue Moon, because it is the second Full Moon in the month of January, whereas February will not have any. It is also a Supermoon because it is close to the earth and thus appears larger than usual. Leo Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse is a time of intense energy and deep shifts in consciousness, however, it is a confusing and unstable time as well, so you might want to lay low for a few days. Be sure to pay attention to what comes to the fore in your dreams and daytime musings because lunar eclipses are times when the unconscious dominates reality. It is there in the realm of archetypes and myths that you will find the wellspring of your Leo creative center. If your birthday falls on or within a few days of the 31st or August 3rd, then this will be a pivotal year of change for you. If this is the case, you might want to book a reading.
Mercury enters Aquarius on Wednesday at 5:39 AM, just after the Leo Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse is exact. Mercury in Aquarius is progressive-thinking and fond of Utopian ideas. We have three Void Moon periods to watch out for. The first is this morning from 2:39 AM until 10:57 AM when the Moon leaves Gemini for its home sign of Cancer. Gemini Void Moon is bad for gossip, but good for studying trivia. Thursday the Leo Moon is Void from 2:59 AM until it enters Virgo at 11:13 AM. Void Leo Moon, especially after the eclipse, is good for creative brainstorming. And finally, next Friday the Moon is Void in Virgo from 11:07 PM until it enters Libra at 1:47 PM Saturday afternoon. So don’t make any big plans for next Saturday morning, unless it involves organizing closets!
