We’ve been having a waxing Leo Moon weekend – big, exuberant energy that is potentially excessive and prone to indulging. When La Luna is reaching fullness, as she ripens, she is lending us the magic of the sign she is transiting. In Leo, she is sensual, illuminated and self-oriented. Now is the time to love yourself up to maximum capacity.
La Luna is almost directly across from the Sun at this time, who is sharing the waters of Pisces with Neptune. The Sun is newly in Pisces as of 3 days ago, and we are opening ourselves up to a time of increased sensitivity, caring and feeling. The Sun is shining light on the area of your chart ruled by Pisces, so that house in particular is going to experience the “spotlight” with this solar transit. Pisces rules my 10th house of career, outer identity and reputation – which also happens to be where my Moon dwells. No wonder I am obsessed with writing about the Moon!
Neptune has been in Pisces since 2012 and will continue to travel in her waters until 2025. Neptune is the modern ruler of Pisces and he is all about spiritual transformation. Traditionally Pisces was ruled by Jupiter, which is probably why so many Piscean people have huge hearts are natural givers. Neptune in Pisces can be prone to fantasy and escapism, but he is also extremely creative and clairvoyant. Neptune in Pisces is the natural musician, and this 13-year stretch could speak to a time when a new generation of incredible musicians and sound-healers are being born.
La Luna is creeping up on a little square to Mars that is exact at 5:17pm PST today, and then she makes no other aspects (she is void) until she enters Virgo at 3:24am tomorrow. Moon square Mars can bring up feelings of opposition and conflict, or emotions like anger and resentment. Mars is in secretive waters of Scorpio these days (until March 5th) and he is digging in the depths of our desires. Let that which arises, arise. The thing we are guaranteed is change.
The full Moon in Virgo is exact at 10:20am tomorrow, Monday. Virgo rules the 6th House of health, work and service. She is grounded, logical and efficient. Jupiter and the North Node are both planted in Virgo for quite some time, so as the Moon passes through Virgo she is also supported by the planet of benevolence and good fortune (Jupiter) as well as the aspect that speaks to destiny and life-purpose (North Node). Now is the time to get real, folks.
March will be full of eclipses (total Solar eclipse on March 8th and Lunar eclipse on March 23rd). Eclipses bring change and opportunity. They can be pretty intense for some of us.
Anchor yourself at this time. Compassion towards self and others will be a golden key that you are being invited to use as the power of transformation surrounds us during eclipse season.
Blessings and Peace.
