It’s officially a Full Moon in Leo on Friday, February 14, 2014 at 6:53 p.m. EST.
Happy Valentine’s Day this Friday and Happy Full Moon!
Did you know that Friday is named after the Norse goddess Frigg, a.k.a. Frigga, and in the Roman pantheon Friday is associated with Venus, the goddess of love?
This Full Moon in Leo stands across the sky from the Sun in Aquarius now.
Mercury started his retrograde phase in Pisces on January 31. On February 11th Mercury enters back into Aquarius edging closer to the Sun to contribute to the dynamic of this Full Moon. Mercury and the Sun meet with precision on the 15th, the day after this Full Moon.
An interest in astrology and personal introspection will be increased around this Full Moon and continuing into the next few weeks.
In relating to others, a lot of people will likely notice there are miscommunications now, especially about ideas that pertain to a vision of the future. Without explicitly stating the details and confirming that the other person you are speaking with is totally clear on what you’re saying, there is likely to be wrong assumptions and misunderstandings.
It may be a good time to muse about the future and brainstorm the possibilities, but it’s also not a good idea to sign papers now that lock you into a future you aren’t totally sure about.
If someone is giving you a quote on a project you’d like to have done, make sure you look very closely at the details, and ensure they are aware of what your vision really is. Otherwise, they may have a very different vision of what you want in their own mind causing the tally of the numbers to be way off what you expect. For many, it is likely best to just wait a few weeks instead of starting big projects now to avoid the confusion.
There is definitely the possibility of misinterpreting even the simplest conversations now. Emails, posts and text messages could have intended one thing but the recipient interpreted the meaning of the message very differently depending on that person’s own train of thought. The tone of your voice and body language could also be misconstrued. Mixed messages are certainly likely. Communication could certainly be challenging and many people will take things personally. Keeping a tight lip may be your best option now.
Lack of communication can certainly cause distance between you and another person. For instance the breadwinner of the household may be so busy in their work and responsibilities day and night that they are not aware of what the homemaker, or home worker, has been doing, and thus assumes he or she is doing very little. However, it’s actually because there is a lack of communication leading to the assumption, when in reality the stay-at-home worker may be busy as a bee all day getting lots accomplished.
Considering Valentine’s Day is important to many people, the extra effort to show you love someone, and trying to be as clear as possible, will be very helpful. Don’t let assumptions ruin the day. Some may expect big, personal gifts, but being down to earth and caring is going to create a stronger foundation in authentic relationships that are based on more than just materialism.
Of course, technology may be fickle now. You may notice electric signs acting wonky. Car batteries may act finicky. People may be given wrong directions, or online maps may show you a route that leads you directly into a construction zone. Emails may not process or get sent late. Make sure you proofread your emails before you hit submit. Finding the right match to your socks may be challenging as well. Did the dryer eat them or what?
Some people may bang into things more often than usual due to clumsy coordination. The way the body communicates with the mind can be skewed now.
Oh, my! Doesn’t this all just sounds so annoying? Well, yes, with the Mercury retrograde touching on the ego and the need for independence in Aquarius, a lot of people may demand their right to be in their own bubble. Some people may certainly get under your skin and irritate you now. Even though you may not be able to put your finger on why exactly you feel pushy, bossy, or maybe even feel like telling someone off, the urge may be there, below the surface ready to burst out. Something may be at an apex.
Full Moon’s bring up a lot of emotional energy. Coupled with the fact that Mercury retrograde is merging mixed messages with the interaction of the Sun and Full Moon, bringing a lack of clarity to situations, it can certainly feel hairy at times. Strong, fixed opinions can persistently fan the flames.
However, if you can overcome your ego and resist taking the dramatically fierce, even rebellious, self-centered approach, and instead focus on having fun, you’ll be able to ride the waves and calm those flames.
Although there is such possibility for irritable energy now due to misunderstandings, it’s a good idea to turn that fiery energy around. By being active and positively enthusiastic, you can encourage and emphasize your strengths now. Use that fun-loving Leo energy to your advantage and tap into the Aquarian eccentricity. Be flamboyant. Put your creative, experimental, energetic foot forward and celebrate your uniqueness. Artists who put their passions into their work will make amazing work.
Express yourself, but also do your best to make sure you try to be respectful of others space. Being too out there can irk some people, so try to surround yourself with those who are at a similar energy level as you so you can be true to yourself. Remind people of your light, and shine with a smile.
Mars pushes the energy up a notch during this Full Moon, urging you to do the work to find resolution and balance. Even if you think that things will resolve themselves your effort to push things along towards positive reconciliation strengthens your bond to others. Sometimes passionate and dramatic encounters completely shifts the energy in a relationship swiftly. Choose the passions you act upon. It's actually going to be quite easy for those who have difficulty maintaining self control to get angry now.
Though this Full Moon has an intensity to it and you may not be able to think so clearly or make firm decisions, there will likely be a shift in your perceptions that reach deep within you.
It’s also important to remember your humanitarian side now, realizing that so many people in the world don’t have it so wonderful. It’s easy to forget how good we may have it compared to so many others. If you can, in any way, contribute to creating a shift in consciousness and sharing that with others to help people in their lives, you’re helping to raise the world up in your own way. Focusing on helping others, and what you can do for others, helps you move beyond little misunderstandings and puts things in perspective. All those little things that may be getting under your skin lately, really, how important are they in the grand scheme of things?
It is a good time for you to put pen to paper and write down your ideas so you don’t forget them. Brainstorming big ideas and creating a vision for your future will be fantastic now. Let your mind float all over the place for inspiration and ideas. Visualize with color and dramatics, as if you’re envisioning your future to be acted out like a play with lavish sets and designs to inspire and entice you. Go bold with reds, oranges, yellows and teals.
Flashes of insight can certainly arise during daydreams now, where you intuitively understand on a subconscious level. Of course, any conscious ideas may be fleeting and easily forgotten, so again, write things down for review and pondering later.
A few days after the Full Moon the Sun moves into Pisces on the 18th then connects with Neptune in Pisces on the 23rd. By reconnecting to your spirit you will begin to realize how faith in yourself and your purpose really does empower you to live a more self-actualized life. As you go within and create a more personal connection to your spirit we will progress towards the power of the New Moon in a couple of weeks.
