A solar-lunar crescendo occurs on Saturday, January 23, 2016, at 8:46 PM EST in fierce and flashy Leo. The lunar impulse is spontaneous! It amps up the moment’s sense of possibility and unearths previously hidden desires out into the light of day. Fun, passion and creativity is at a peak, and so is pride..
It’s a time for soul searching, and observing…waiting for the right timing to
pounce act. Leo is big on romancing and being romanced, probably more than all the other Zodiac signs. If you’ve been feeling the sparks with a secret crush, a strong urge to merge could surge! Flirtations in passing may no longer be enough…
Sun King Leo is a fixed (stubborn) sign, and demands to be seen and heard in an expressive and sometimes forceful manner. It may be wise to steer clear of hot-button topics or issues this week-end. No one will be in the mood to back down from his/her righteous stance. The King of the Jungle sees the sunny side of life and people just as long as everyone remembers who’s leader of the pack.
“Full Moons are when loony moods go supernova, so watch the drama with this one. The Plutonian edge adds some urgency to get to the heart of what’s happening. Or to provoke a catalyst. Mercury is still retrograde in serious Capricorn, and meeting truth-bomber Pluto in an exact alignment. On top of that, Mars is in Scorpio, and that’s Pluto’s own sign. The very foundation of things, or presumptions, can be questioned now.” -Molly Hall
The fiery Leo Moon is proud and intensely individual, with a natural desire to be center stage. The airy Aquarius Sun, while individualistic as well, values independence and seeks to connect to the world and make it a better place. It’s the swing and balance of staying true to ourselves, shining our light, being leaders in our own lives and cheering others on.
This lunation occurs at 3 degrees and 29 minutes of Leo opposite the Sun at 3 degrees and 29 minutes of Aquarius, affecting those with personal planets and points at approximately 0 to 6 degrees of the Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) most significantly.
It’s a Good Time to:
- Celebrate, play, party with friends that encourage you to be your most over-the-top self.
- Give the artist within a signal that you’re “serious” about self-expression.
- Surround yourself with colors that lift your spirits.
- Show some playful affection to a friend.
- Kindle the romance in your life.
- Take pride in your appearance.
- Promote yourself and your ideas in a new way.
