The Full Moon reaches its peak in Leo on the 12th March 2017 at 14:53 GMT.

The Moon in Leo wears her heart on her sleeve and has a great need for love and appreciation. The Leo Moon is confident, generous and very regal in her appearance. At times the Leo Moon can come across as arrogant and self centred but this is just a guise to cover up her hurt ego/pride.

Leo represents the heart and with Venus and Jupiter both in Retrograde this Full Moon indicates that this a time for reflection and rebuilding our faith around love and self value. Venus and Jupiter in Retrograde is giving us a chance to revisit our past and repair or restructure our belief about love, especially self love. It is time for us to face our deepest inhibitions and the cause behind them. Old wounds that stem from childhood experiences have been surfacing for a while now, but have now reached their peak of intensity, urging us to take a good look at what it is exactly that has us stuck in the groove of too much self pride, or, maybe not enough. The aspects to our Full moon bring up issues around our need for independence and our need for emotional comfort; if the mindset is that we can only have one or the other then, we are in danger of acting without forethought. The most important thing for us to remember, or recognise, is that each and every one of us is already a unique individual and in our own right. We may have got distracted off our true path along the way due to living our lives for other people, rather than to allow our own Soul to shine. Emotions are tense and we are vulnerable to sink into the melancholy and sadness that past memories can sometimes bring up. We need to rise above our perceived insecurities and make good use of this powerful energy by using it to overcome obstacles or old wounds that have blocked our path to happiness. We must not allow ourselves to remain ‘emotional prisoners’ of our past, otherwise we will continue the self perpetuating cycle of misfortunes and loneliness. Even for those who have put in the work of spiritual development are finding these intense planetary energies challenging and unsettling. Relationships have been quite a theme over the last few months and many have come to the end of the road, as the great awakening that has been taking place is continuing to reveal the blatant truth of our present situation. Now is the time to reflect on and to release stagnant and unrewarding behaviours or misconceptions, giving ourselves the chance to ‘realise’ how we got ourselves into certain situations that did not serve our highest good. Once we have done this the healing process can begin and we can rebuild our inner strength and self love. ‘True love must start from within’. We have now reached a time where the reality of our situations are hitting home, big time. We must face our past demons with courage, honesty and without judgement. We must think before we speak and speak clearly and objectively to get the results we need. If our minds are overloaded with deep hidden emotions we must take some time out to allow old wounds to surface, to be healed, loved and nurtured. We must face our wounds or injustices of the past to gain the wisdom needed to be able to move forward. This may not be an easy process as the energy coming in is likely to be overwhelming and inhibiting, especially if we are stuck in an old pattern of making do, regardless of the bleak future it holds. We must open our minds and our hearts to alternative possibilities and give ourselves a real chance at finding happiness by being true to ourselves first. The Black Moon Lilith is in Ophiuchus this Full Moon, casting her shadow of unfairness and her fear of rejection. We must not be on the defensive and look within for the hidden cause of our emotional discomfort; we must allow the healing process to begin with an open mind and an open heart. I suggest we meditate on all our Chakra’s this Full Moon by visualising a beautiful white light streaming into your Crown Chakra and pushing it through the rest of your Chakra Points and out through your feet, into the Earth. Burn White Candles and Sage or Frankincense & Myrrh Incense. Use the Affirmation: I am at peace with myself and release all of the things in my life that no longer serve my highest and best.
