It may still be cold here in the Northeast, but things are heating up with this Full Moon in Leo. This moon is asking us to RECLAIM what is ours! Reclaim our passion, our bodies, our voice, our anger, our heat. Leo’s fiery aspects are igniting in us the need and desire to take up more space. This is going to look and feel a little differently for everyone, depending on what you need to work on and where you are in your journey. Here are a few of the ways that this fire might show up for you.
Reclamation of Sexuality (aka horny as hell)
The Leo moon is stirring up a serious case of the hornys! If you have been somewhat shut down sexually, this moon offers a wonderful jump start. Our culture views of sexuality are very skewed. It’s this weird paradigm where culturally we are utterly obsessed, but personally we offended and reserved. No more! Leo wants us to claim what is ours! Let’s throw out the outdated idea that sexuality is somehow offensive and that self-pleasure is dirty. This Full Moon is grabbing us by our yoni’s and asking us to dive deep into pleasure. Whether you are in a relationship or not, create time in your schedule for toe curling pleasure this weekend. Another wonderful way to connect with sexual energy is through sensual dance!
Connect with your anger
If the cathartic release you are looking for is not of the sexual nature, the fiery energy might be bringing old anger to the surface. Do you know how powerful anger can be? The problem is we usually bottle it up until it overflows in inappropriate ways. We rage in traffic, yell at our kids, or get passive aggressive with our coworkers. Anger is not inherently bad, it’s a tool to show us when we are not sitting in our truth. It is supposed to key us in to necessary changes in our lives. However, if we are constantly stuffing down these emotions with food, distractions, and other forms of escapism, we are not creating the changes in our lives that we need. The Leo Full Moon is asking us to take a serious look at what makes us angry. Dive into it, feel it out, let it sink in, and then create and action plan to generate change. Some of my personal rage releasing activities include hitting a punching bag and running!
Passion into Creation
Some of us may be feeling our passion stirring in yet another way. Creation energy. Writing a business plan, reaching out to a valuable contact, booking a retreat or signing up for a course. The excitement and motivation associated with this moon might just give you the push to put plans into action. If you are feeling lit up in this way, definitely maximize your efforts this moon and really put yourself out there. Full Moon’s in general are an exceptional time to be seen and heard, and this moon is especially potent.
How to Maximize the Medicine of this Moon
Whatever it is you are feeling this weekend, the most important thing is to FEEL IT. Sink in, don’t shy away. Notice your body, what is it asking for? Gentle movement? Rough sex? Axe Throwing? Listen and respond. Our bodies are incredibly wise and when listened to, lead us exactly where we need to go. Here are some tools that might help!
Read. Relate. Repeat.
My hope is through my words, through my own experiences, you will relate to some piece of my story. Some desire that I've shared or insecurity I've admitted to will also belong to you. My words are my truth, but they may also be yours.
