So it is the full moon in Leo this coming Sunday, what does this mean?
Under Leos's full moon, you will feel safe in moments when you can impress others and receive admiration and praise. Yet, when you get under the spotlight, you may find yourself at a loss. Maybe you should admit your fear of criticism and your inability to accept criticism. You need to accept feedback and use it for personal development and growth.
This full moon will all be about passion and desire! This is because the planet Mars most influences the February full moon most. This full moon makes a helpful aspect to Mars, and it falls onto two Mars-like stars.
Full Moon Meaning
The Sun opposite Moon brings your family, home, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create external pressures and inner tension. This can lead to conflict and crisis, which will drain you of your energy.
The lunar qualities of instincts and emotions will react to their peak at the full moon. So it is time to increase your emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your relationships. You will see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings, causing disharmony.
Full Moon In February Astrology
The February 9th full moon in Leo makes two planetary aspects, but they are only weak influences because of the wide orbs. The most important one is a trine to Mars due to the fixed stars that join the full moon both have a Mars nature.
Full Moon Aspects
The full moon trine Mars gives you the courage and initiative to make the first move and take the lead. You will intuitively know what you want and exactly how to get it. This is the perfect full moon for acting on your instincts. You can be direct and assertive without looking rude or bossy; instead, you will be admired for your honesty.
If you tend to be a shy person, this is the time to get in touch with your sexuality and share your passionate desires. Increased charisma and sex appeal is an excellent omen for socialising when it comes to your love life. Full moon February 2020 will also help you stand up for yourself and to defend your family.
The full moon quincunx Neptune increases your emotional sensitivity, but too many or conflicting emotions can lead to tension and confusion. With Mars amplifying our emotions, relationship tension could easily escalate to a critical point when you have a meltdown or need to escape.
To reduce the tension under this full moon, avoid getting to the crisis point, find the right balance in your life. A good balance between your social drink and alcoholism, the balance between hypochondria and health consciousness, is also needed. And there NEEDS to be a balance between sacrifice and service.
Full Moon Stars
The fixed star Merak in the Great Bear has a Mars Nature. It gives the love of domination and command while increasing the power to get on in life.
Fixed star Ras Elased Australis in the Lion's head has a Mars and Saturn nature. It gives a bold, cruel, heartless, destructive and bombastic nature, but a real appreciation for art and the language of expression and power. It does also give the quality of looking carefully into a situation before going ahead.
The constellation Ursa Major gives a suspicious, mistrustful, self - controlled, patient and prudent nature, but an uneasy spirit and great revengeful and anger when roused. The Bear has quite the evil influence and can be particularly injurious with regards to the affairs of nations and royalty.
The Full Moon Lunar Manions
9th Arabic Manzil - Al Tarf hinders travelers and harvest and also causes discord. With the moon, you do not want to travel, make commitments, get marries or plant.
24th Chinses Xiu - Willow governs sadness, tears, and suffering. It is unfavorable for everything. This is not the full moon to launch any new projects as you are at the risk of losing your investments.
Full Moon in February 2020 - Summary
The major influence in this full moon is from the fixed star in constellations Leo and Ursa Major. They both act as the planet Mars to reinforce the major aspect, Moon trine Mars.
So the full moon in February gives us courage, strength, and initiative. It also encourages you to act on your passionate and emotional desire, especially when it comes to your family and intimate relationships.
The fixed stars gives you the confidence to act boldly and take what you want when you want it, but it also gives you caution against acting too selfishly and ignoring others' feelings. Finding the right balance between all aspects of your life is key under this full moon.
The full moon has a relationship with the previous new moon. The January 24th new moon brought unexpected changes, crazy mood swings and unpredictable behaviour. So this is another reason why you should keep your emotions in check and look carefully into situations before you get into it. The February full moon will last for up to two weeks before the new moon on the 23rd.
