Leo Full Moon Round Up
A Full Moon draws our attention to the two signs the Sun and Moon fall in, so what are the issues for Leo and Aquarius? The Leo-Aquarius axis symbolizes the need to balance the individual need for personal gain and acclaim with the need to help, support and be equal to everyone else. Aquarius will never deny Leo’s right to be king, but will absolutely insist that the king serves his people with integrity and honesty. Teamwork and delegation of authority is everything to Aquarius and selfish greed is just not acceptable. Aquarius teaches that ultimately it is through serving the group, the community, the team, our friends, that we gain the honor and significance that is so crucial to Leo. Conversely, Leo teaches Aquarius that sometimes you have to take the lead if the cause is important enough. Somebody has to stand up for the masses, rebel against the status quo and shake the system up, if there is to be any chance of a lasting change for the better and what better than Aquarian energy to do this!
Given the current line up of planets in Aquarius right now, the Leo Moon is injecting spirit into the Aquarian energy, calling for balance, as well as suggesting potential opposition:
Sun in Aquarius = energy and goals directed towards working together for the common good, towards brother/sisterhood, helping out
Mercury in Aquarius = new ideas/commonality of mindset/social networking/forward thinking/rule breaking
Mars in Aquarius = action for equality/fighting for a cause/rebellious anger
Neptune in Aquarius = collective idealism/humanitarianism/vision
Ceres in Aquarius = nurturance/comfort within a group
The events currently sweeping across the Middle East exemplify these Aquarian energies at work, as well as the revolutionary energies of the applying Uranus-Pluto square.
