he Full Moon on January 21 in Leo is also a total lunar eclipse (blood moon), packing a BIG BANG of changes, rearranges, and opportunity to reignite passion. And hello, who doesn’t want that in a 3 Universal Year?! This is a profound experience, for the individual and the collective.
As we enter the zodiac sign of Aquarius on the same day and the sun is square Uranus, this can also bring challenges and anxiety. But hold tight, you got this. The energy radiating from this eclipse will be worth the potentially wild ride.
This full blood moon is the perfect time to get clear and to recommit to what really matters to you. Leo rules passion, enjoyment, love, core desires, and fun. Leo is also a leader and regardless of whether you are a Leo or have it in your chart, the energy of this moon will affect us all and we will get to reap the benefits of fiery and passionate Leo.
We are stepping into what we really feel and how we want to lead in our lives. And after a year like 2018 where we had to construct the life of our dreams from scratch, this full moon will usher in a time where we work towards that vision, hold it clear and close, and make it fucking happen. We are talking about major pivot points to inspire and cultivate lasting change.
Don’t give up on that vision and purpose this year, but light the fire to fuel that growth from the heart and a place of supreme authenticity. Whatever that vision was, recommit and take practical action on it.
We may run into challenges and obstacles this month and beyond, but don’t take that as a sign to reroute or rethink your desires. Rather, take it as an opportunity to fortify your vision and take ACTION and make it happen. Don’t waiver in the face of challenge, but go forth and take full leadership, like the Leo within us all and get it. Leos are a force to be reckoned with, so channel that fierce energy and make your dream a reality.
The moon during this total eclipse will appear blood red in the sky. Gaze at it if you can see it where you are, and channel that red hot ferocious Leo energy.
Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Ritual
This first eclipse season of 2019 lasts until early February, and the first new moon of the year on January 5th kicked us off. Typically lasting about 36 days, this is a potent time to take action and make some radical changes. A lunar eclipse always occurs at a full moon, and a solar eclipse at a new moon.
At the full moon, the universe and Spirit are calling us to release. This can be a physical release, mental, emotional, or energetic. Whatever is in your life that is no longer serving you, or giving you joy and power, will need to be recognized and released at this time. We can’t manifest something into our life if we aren’t also getting things out of our life. Space has to be made and the glory of the light of the full moon will illuminate everything and assist you in reaching those deep dark corners that we easier left untouched. Think of the moon as a flashlight into your soul and work with it to let that shit go!
Leo Full Moon Eclipse Ritual Tarot/Oracle Spread
There are endless spreads you can do with tarot and oracle cards, but one I feel would serve the energy of this full moon best is as follows.
Using either a tarot or oracle deck, or both, meditate on these three questions and pull a card for each:
- Why does this vision matter to me?
- Why do I feel this needs to happen for me and the collective?
- What blocks do I need to bust through to make this happen?
