Full Moon | February 9, 2020 | 20 Leo 0’
"If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself,
tell yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches." --Rainer Maria Rilke
Before I came upon the above quote, I read, elsewhere, “Each and every component that makes up your life experience is drawn to you by the powerful Law of Attraction’s response to the thoughts you think and the story you tell about your life.”
When the Moon is in Leo, naturally, you dramatize. Your feeling is to pour your heart, to dance, sing, and play— literally and metaphorically. The Sun in Aquarius might represent the audience. Moon is not that strong in Leo, and you might find yourself catering to the audience (which might only be in your head) instead of expressing your own soul. Perhaps your story could benefit from a more poetic, musical, artistic, daring dance. Or you could use some inspiration as told by an inconjunct to Neptune in Pisces as well as an inconjunct to Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn.
Perhaps the question or source of tension and doubt has to do with how you might be judged or assessed by others. Perhaps the answer is to not depend on the commentary of the audience, especially the critics. Never mind what they say, what do you feel? The Moon in Leo is trine Mars in Sagittarius. Feel the power. Light some fires.
Taking some cues from the Moon in Leo, you needn’t default to reacting to what life rolls your way as if the universe got your order wrong. Moon in Leo directs your feet to the sunny side of the street. I am working with the idea that you gotta feel good to get good. Expect the worse or fear the worse, and you usually get the worse. You feel disappointed, but what you got was what you didn’t want, but what you focused on.
Capricorn and Leo. The manifestation and the creator. Do not let unwanted manifestations dim your creative fire. Remain naturally happy, light of heart and broad of hope. Like digging for gold concealed in the earth dig for the light and the joy. Be a happy miner.
For this full moon, we’ve got fire and air, energy and ideas. Mars to Sun suggests going for the brightest and the best. Compose the soundtrack of your life. Invent the story. Tell it how you want it to be.
Fix upon your emotions and the thoughts that feed them. I was thinking about a situation in my life as I was driving recently and as my thoughts tended toward disappointment and disapproval, my gut groaned, and I caught myself. Whoa! You are making yourself feel bad and that is not good! In order to reverse the downward spiral, I started tapping (www.thetappingsolution.com) as I drove. Tapping is touching certain meridians in your head and upper torso that correspond to acupressure sites, while you language something like, “Even though this unpleasant condition exists, I deeply and completely love and accept myself.”
Tapping is said to work because it calms the fight or flight of the amygdala at the base of the brain. I was amazed yet again by the way tapping reduces, not only pain and dis-ease in the body, but painful, fearful emotions as well. Once you are calm and confident, you can proceed with good results.
