Today the Moon moves through Leo with no major aspects as it approaches the Full Moon on Sunday. The Moon will appear to be at its fullest tonight as the opposition goes exact in the early pre-dawn hours of Sunday. So, if you do any work with the Full Moon—rituals, spells, meditations, communion with the sky, reverence for cycles of change—tonight will be opportune for these practices. As the Moon moves toward fullness, it does so in the sign of the Sun and with reception from the Sun. However, the Sun is in its antithesis or detriment in Aquarius. While Leo calls us toward blazing authenticity, the sustained radiance of allowing our full selves to be seen, celebrated, and loved, the Sun itself is in a sign in which it has less resources for illuminating that which it signifies. Aquarius is ruled by Saturn, and in this sign, the Sun is limited, constrained, or even made marginal in some way. This Full Moon may be a time to find how we are capable of shining brightly not in spite of the ways we have been limited or marginalized, but because of those challenging experiences. How have repression, regulation, or constriction introduced you to parts of yourself for which the world is most in need? What if the qualities and facets of who you are that have been the least supported or affirmed are the ones that those around you most need to see and celebrate? For this Full Moon, how might you not only lavish attention and affection on your whole self, but also specifically honor, acknowledge, and affirm the parts of your experience of yourself that you have been most conditioned to ignore, conceal, or minimize? What if doing so is not only in alignment with your own well-being, but also that which you have been given to offer to the well-being of others?
