Leo Moon faces a tightly packed crescent of planets!  Leo is the fiery representative of the Sun but in lunar form, so we might feel both packed with energy and confused about where to put all that full Moon drive.   A full Moon in Leo is always opposite an Aquarian Sun, a weak place for the Sun to be located.  Sunday, the Moon has to do some of the Sun’s work.   And unless there is cloud cover, this is usually a brilliant Moon. The Moon will be at her closest point to the earth (perigee) on Saturday, so even more light and magnificence are projected for Sunday’s peak moment.

When the Leonic dragon Moon rises in your heart, in your stomach in your spine, how will you dance?   Aquarian Sun is full of new and strange ideas!   They are in exact opposition across the sky and the chart.   Leo Moon gives airy mental Aquarius the fuel to create new structures, new vessels from the tightly packed Capricorn crowd in the Sun’s neighborhood.   This is a cold season with a hot Moon, something has to melt!

Amelia’s beautiful painting is the perfect illustration of this combination of air, with herons in flight over a fiery dragon against the background of a very full Moon.

Full Moon in Leo 2020Just to ramp up the energy we have Mars in the fiery sign of Sagittarius and Eris, Aries’ wild and crazy sister in fiery Aries!   This means we have a fire ‘trine,’  a twirling pinwheel of light and energy.

What to do with all of this light, Fire, whirling energy and airiness?

Let’s talk about the Sun illustrated with falcons and heliotropic flowers circling the year’s turn.

There are animals: shrimps, fish, worms who have no eyes.  They live deep in the earth or the sea and never experience sunlight.  Eyes must be deeply connected to sunlight.  But we are told: ‘Never look at the Sun!  You’ll go blind!’ Only Falcon can fly between the Sun and the Earth and carry solar messages without burning his eye or his wings.  Falcon is Horus, is Hermes, is the Hawk of Dawn, one of the Oldest Animals. He is associated with healing…as the Sun is the ultimate healer.

The Sun’s journey creates the ‘ecliptic’, the route of the Sun through constellations we call the Zodiac! Sun never varies on that journey, moving back and forth from East to West each day and from North to South with the seasons.

Know where the Sun lodges over the year in your horizon. People who live close to the earth, like our ancestors, mark the Sun’s journey in stone and story.  Bring his rays at dawn and sunset into the stones of your circle, a favorite place in your garden or in a park or the woods near you. As the wheel of the year turns, and you return to meet the Sun at that marked place, he will be there, shining through a notch on the horizon or touching a sacred stone as marker.

Somewhere inside each of us is a flower that opens to face into the rays of the Sun.  For we too are Suns and our beams shine out to light up the world.  Find where the Sun is located in your astrology chart, for it gives you a clue to know where our most sacred efforts are directed.
