Full Moon In Leo
8:56 AM, PST
Full Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are in the opposite signs of each other. On the day of the Full Moon, as the Sun is setting in the West, the Moon (in all its full glory) is rising on the opposite side in the East at the exact same time. If you’re positioned to capture an open eastern and western horizon view on February 16th, it is such a beautiful moment - get outside at sunset and look in both directions!
The Sun is currently in Aquarius and the zodiac sign opposite of Aquarius is Leo. Therefore on February 16th, our Full Moon will be in Leo. Leo is fiery, playful, expressive, loves attention, and taking center stage.
Leo’s Full Moon can be a wonderful time to create some playful fun! It’s a great time to dance and share and let yourself and your loved ones cut loose and really let their hair down! Even if it comes midweek and has to be celebrated in the context of other weekly needs.
Full Moons open us up emotionally and although Leo is not so much focused on emotions, it is expressive. Therefore, if you’ve been not expressing or releasing the difficult emotions you know are hovering in your being, you may find this moon gets you to “come out with it, already”. In addition, as playful and fiery as Leo is - it might be just the right Moon medicine needed to release the emotions, clear a layer or two or three, and open you to allowing you to feel the light of your being, as well. It’s like how we can feel really lifted after a good cry. Through this process and after a good emotional clearing, you can then get back to “playing” in the present time, like a Leo naturally does.
If a Leo isn’t able to express and show themselves, and or shine in the center of the circle - then there can also be a sense of feeling depressed. If you’re feeling layers of depression in your life, I recommend creating some intentional processing time under this Leo Full Moon and asking yourself: Where I am not allowing myself to shine where I could be? Where am I holding myself back from being seen? Am I playing enough in my life? Am I enjoying the present moments of my life? - these could be deeply-pressing matters interfering with your ability to experience joy.

Venus Conjunct Mars
Strongest in February: 13 -27th
Yes! Venus and Mars continue to join their forces in Capricorn and strongly tighten their conjunction the second half of February. Therefore, relationships will continue to be center of focus for the rest of the month.
I wrote a big piece about this in the last blog.

Jupiter Sextile Uranus
February 5th - February 29th
Strongest 13 - 21st
Jupiter brings opportunities for growth and expansion with an optimistic feeling that things are going to work out. Add this quality with Uranus’s energy of freedom from restriction and creating new pathways and you may find yourself approaching life from a renewed and freeing perspective. Perhaps the “impossibles” in your life are now seeming possible in the month of February.
The Sextile between Jupiter and Uranus creates a positive and easy energy flow between the planets that can stimulate you to want to break through imposed restrictions (from self or others) and create new opportunities for expansion and growth in your life. There’s an optimistic, “I can do it!” feeling coming through this February, especially from the 13th through the 21st.
Ask yourself: Where have you been feeling restricted in your life? Have there been barriers preventing you from moving forward with something? Where have you been stuck in old patterns or ruts and are in need of a fresh perspective? The answers to these questions can provide insights into the things that may finally have a chance to open up and move forward for you.
It’s fun to acknowledge that this freedom from restriction arrives the strongest just before Valentine’s Day. If there’s a step forward in the evolution of a special relationship you have been exploring how to manifest, this time can bring an opportunity for a breakthrough.
First Pluto Return for the United States
February 22nd, 2022
February 22nd, 2022 is the date widely agreed-upon by astrologers for peak of the Pluto return cycle for the United States. However, since Pluto moves slowly, this energy has already been coming on strong since 2020 and will last until the end of 2023. It’s no quick process!
This Pluto return is a time when the energies of which this country was birthed upon are coming back around to start a new cycle of rebirth.
