This coming week, we feel the roar of the full moon in Leo. As always, on a full moon, Lady Luna is reflecting the complete light of the sun (despite this being known as the Snow Moon in the northern hemisphere!) and no one embodies the sun and its full shining glory like the sign of the lion.
Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac and connected to creativity, self-expression and an almost childlike joy (this is why many Leos are so proud of their little cubs). Can the lion sometimes roar a little bit too loud demanding his place in the spotlight with a tendency towards vanity? Sure, but if you’re looking for a time to shine bright and embrace that energy then be sure to work with some of the rituals below to really harness the power of this full moon. Check out where 16° of Leo falls in your chart – this is the area of life where you are at your most creative and dramatic, where you feel called to take the lead with pride!
Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius signs are feeling the changes the most this full moon. These are all signs that by their nature dislike change unless it is meaningful, so be prepared to step out of your comfort zone and embrace the changes that are starting to kick off in force this year. Remember we are more than just our sun sign, so check if your moon rising or Venus falls under any of these zodiac signs – it may explain how you are feeling!
No More Retro-Shade!
Are you feeling kind of over the amount of time we spent with Mercury and Venus in retrograde? Many of you would’ve seen the reappearance of certain themes especially in the realm of relationships and miscommunication? Well, the good news is that the energy is certainly picking up from now all the way until April 29th as we currently have zero – that’s correct, zero – planets in backward motion! Hurrah! I hear you cry and yes it will be great to finally feel the move of stagnancy that has been hanging around since the beginning of the year.
On this full moon, we finally have Mars and Venus meeting up together in a beautiful conjunction in the sky – a pairing of the divine feminine and masculine. If you are a Virgo or Cancer rising, this is powerful news in all things relationship and love. Certainly there will be some fire and activity. This is a great time to connect with people especially if you’ve been feeling stuck. The weather in Dubai is beautiful right now and so why not spend some time meeting up with other people, firing up ideas (this conjunction is trying to tap into revolutionary and maverick Uranus)?
Full Moon Mantras
Below are some suggested mantras to incorporate into your full moon rituals in order for you to make the most of this energy surge. If you have crystals, then the full moon is a wonderful time to clean them in some water and Himalayan salt and charge them under the moonlight to really activate their power. Remember: on full moons, we release what has been highlighted over the past month. We can do this through celebration, reflection, or possibly even through an emotional outburst. Allow whatever comes up to ensure you feel the power of each of these mantras.
Aries & Libra
Leo is all about courage, and your ritual for this full moon is about embracing barriers at work and knowing that you are enough when you learn to take the lead as well as collaborate. It is asking if you find more balance between your professional and private life.
Full Moon Mantra: I am enough, and I attract balance when I choose myself.
Taurus & Scorpio
The people in your life can be incredibly important in helping you find self-expression and joy as well as a sense of peace. Just remember to let them in! This can also be a great moment to understand who needs to take more of a leading role in your life and who may be draining your light. Remember to stay in alignment with those who allow you to shine in your most authentic way.
Full Moon Mantra: I attract people who embrace my strengths and support me in my challenges.
Gemini & Sagittarius
This year is bringing plenty of spiritual insights and situations – remember there are no such thing as coincidences! It is important you find moments and rituals within your busy day to embrace the deeper wisdom available to you. This full moon is asking you to tap into your intuition, both in your body and in your soul, and you ask yourself, “Where am I seeking healing?”
Full Moon Mantra: I am healing every day in every way and there is nothing to fear.
Cancer & Capricorn
Sometimes, showing up fully as yourself makes you feel indulgent or egotistical, but the Leo aspect of this moon is positively pushing you to be daring and take the limelight. Whether it’s in your one-on-one relationships or through the people you interact with every day, ask yourself if there is a deeper more authentic you wanting to come through.
Full Moon Mantra: I commit to being authentically and unashamedly me in all aspects of life.
Leo & Aquarius
Sometimes, we are called to splurge and other times, we are called to save – but this full moon is illuminating where you put your money, time, focus, and values of what is important to you. Money is energy just like everything else; hold it too tight and it does not flourish, be foolhardy with it and abundance flows away from you. This full moon, ask yourself where do you feel the most and least abundant in life.
Full Moon Mantra: I am attracting abundance every day and I am worthy of it all.
Virgo & Pisces
Now that Mercury is out of retrograde, stop thinking about how you can communicate your needs most clearly. This full moon will be related to mindset and learning, so you may find opportunities to express yourself in big or small ways – release what needs to be said and you may find your words have true power.
Full Moon Mantra: I express myself with courage and clarity to claim what is already mine.
