Full Moon in Leo, February 5, 2023

The Full Moon in Leo is about balancing personal needs with the concerns of the social group to which we belong. But what is good for us is not necessarily good for everybody. We must find a way to deal with the demands and expectations of others without losing sight of our own needs and wants. The best contribution we can make is to share our unique gifts, rather than simply complying with social norms and expectations.

Full Moon in Leo square Uranus

The Full Moon is squared by Uranus in Taurus, an earthy sign with practical concerns. Uranus likes to wreak havoc – chaos is its middle name. He disrupts and destabilizes situations – the economy, the weather, relationships, or whatever. In square to the Full Moon axis suggests a ‘squaring off’, or a show-down. Expect some turmoil. The natural instinct might be to take refuge in default patterns or responses. But the challenge is finding new and creative ways to deal with the issues as they arise.

Venus square Mars

Venus and Mars are in mutable signs. Mars has turned direct, showing more open aggression than he has done over the past last few months. But since he is still in Gemini, his mode of attack is more likely to be verbal vengeance and badmouthing. Venus in Pisces is more compassionate and understanding. Her response is evasive rather than confrontational, or she might simply become unresponsive and cold.

Mercury conjunct Pluto, sextile Neptune

Mercury is approaching Pluto in Capricorn, and together, they form a sextile with Neptune.

Neptune in Pisces shines a spiritual light on the Mercury/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. Mercury and Pluto dig up the dirt and expose it for all to see.  But Neptune in Pisces is compassionate. He understands human flaws and tries to find meaning in the trials and tribulations of everyday life.
