LUNAR ECLIPSE/FULL MOON IN LEO – FEBRUARY 10TH 2017 AT 6:33pm CT
AstroEyes Evolutionary Astrology – Cathy Lindsey
This Leo Full Moon Lunar Eclipse starts the Eclipse season for 2017. We will have a Solar New Moon Eclipse on February 26th and then 2 more Eclipses in August! These Eclipses along with the current energies that have been intensifying over the last several months will activate changes in both ourselves and the collective. These energies feel a little urgent and a bit chaotic. During these turbulent times… people are a little on edge, anxieties are flaring, and most of us feel like we are totally exhausted….even when we have had plenty of sleep. Our bodies are trying to incorporate all these unusual energies…..at times bringing in the feeling of being over whelmed. Notice how these energies are playing out in “real life”…our own life…the political “life” and the World “life”. The gift of this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo is that the energy of Leo is about coming from our Hearts, having fun, enjoying yourself, being creative, laughing, playing, honoring the child within……. regardless of the changes that are happening around you. These energies are revolutionary and transformative! We are still in the “Shift”…..in times of great change…and everyone can feel it! These changes and Transformations are helping us and all humanity to evolve.
Eclipses are a powerful pin point of energy that creates a “blip/wobble”, or a disruption in time, energy, and the natural flow of light and dark. It also stirs up what is in our subconscious, bringing it into consciousness. An Eclipse affects our Pineal Gland and also affects the magneto-receptors in our DNA, along with radio waves, and X-ray’s. They also activate shifts in the electromagnetic fields of the Earth itself and all of its inhabitants. During an Eclipse, a portal to the Universe is opened and information, thoughts, ideas and Evolutionary instructions…. can be downloaded from the Universe at that time. Lunar eclipses are extra-powerful Full Moons…and activate deep emotions in both your personal life, as well as the collective unconscious. The energy of an Eclipse affects us for the following 6 months. How this Eclipse plays out in your life depends entirely on your chart. Eclipses are doorways to alternative realities. They also can trigger major events…good and bad….and often times are associated with the deaths of people in the public eye.
It is a time to open to the universe, with your guidance, and Feel the energy and down loads as the portal is open during this Eclipse. It is a time to be quiet and Listen…..what do you hear? What visions are you receiving? What do you feel? If you are asleep or busy during the Eclipse….know that your Guidance will make sure you receive the down loads and messages that are important for your Soul growth…if you ask them. Then the next day….mediate and ask your guidance to bring what down loads and messages you received… that you are now ready to hear….into your consciousness….so you can embody them.
This Full Moon in Leo, is about love, play, creativity, and the ability to come from the Heart. It is about self-empowerment, appearing as “the big Heart”, having fun, and being sparkly while becoming the Shining Star! It is about putting our Heart into our passions and becoming the Leader that has a big heart!
When the Full Moon is in Leo…….then the Sun would be in Aquarius….as all Full moons have the Sun and Moon opposing each other. It is a time when we can feel a push and pull type of energy as the two opposing signs (Leo and Aquarius) try to move more into balance.
With the Aquarius Sun we have the energies of group consciousness, our tribe, community, humanity, futuristic thinking, etc….shining brightly. This Full Moon is also about integration of higher consciousness (Aquarius) into your daily life (Leo) and how you have an impact on all humanity (Aquarius and Leo). Leo is the sign of the individual and Aquarius is the sign of the tribe, community and humanity. The universe is accenting the fact that everyone is equal (Aquarius) and no one person is better than anyone else (Leo). Leo is about romance and love within a relationship and Aquarius loves all in the community/humanity….and honors their individuality. We all have gifts (Aquarius) and no one’s gifts are better than anyone else’s (Leo)…..and when you respect everyone’s gifts, even if you don’t resonate with them……we become a highly intelligent community that honors all humanity.
A Leo Full Moon is also a time to play and have some fun……enjoy yourself! It is a time to surround yourself with loving people and ways in which you can share your love. Leo brings out the divine child in all of us. This is a time to be with friends…. or become involved in a creative project that brings you joy. This Full Moon can be powerful and illuminating. Stand in your own bright light, go into your heart and radiate joy!!
Leo is “happy” energy, and it is about the “Big Heart”. The Heart, which is the new mind…..thinking with the Heart! The Heart is about Love. Leo is warm and generous…and those who embody the higher energies of Leo, come from the Heart. Spiritually, Leo is about living from one’s center, one’s Heart.
Leo energy is also about creating……and your ability to create your future. We are in the process of co-creating the “New”, and this Full Leo Moon/Eclipse is giving us the extra energy to focus on releasing all the old (rather we like it or not), so that we can build the “New” on a more solid platform. This is not easy work and can be a little scary and Chaotic at times. Watching the old fall and leave…. is part of what happens when you are co-creating a “New” world, and a “New” you!! Meditate on this and ask what your part is in it. Ask your guidance to guide you in co-creating the “New” you and the “New” world. Ask your guidance to surround Humanity and the World with Peace and Love, as the “New” is being created!
Remember that creativity isn’t just about art…..we can create in many different ways…..art is only one of those ways. Creating a memory…creating fun….using your innocence and curiosity to create joy! Creativity thrives on love and comes from our Heart. Leo energy can also take us on a journey of “Self Discovery”. Watch out for the grayer energies of Leo….those of entitlement, greatness, being a leader that has no Heart, not sharing their goods, and ego. Use the positive and inspiring energies of Leo, to bring about more love and creativity. Remember…Leo is also about the simplicity of childhood….honoring the child within you. It is time to play, have fun, be spontaneous, and fall in love all over again…… Listen to the wisdom of the child within you.
Full Moons are when the tides are high, and feelings are flowing. Full Moons are a time of releasing. It is a time of releasing the old that is no longer working. Go deep into yourself, your foundations and old perceptions and observe what is no longer working for you…..especially in the areas of Love and all types of relationships. What and who are no longer vibrating where you are vibrating? What blockages have you put up that you need to release…..so you can be in a positive relationship. What relationships (romantic, work, family, friends) are no longer working for you? What do you need let go of? Release!!
The Universe is getting pretty urgent about releasing the things that are not working for you, or vibrating where you are vibrating. Through this Shift (that started in 2010 with the forming of the Cardinal Square), we have moved forward and are starting a new area of personnel and collective development. We are freeing ourselves of all the past conditioning and old patterns! We are releasing, moving away from, and purging..…so we can get to know our new Selves! During this Leo Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse we will be surrounded by the intense releases of this “old” energy!
Leo rules the Heart. This Leo Eclipse/Full Moon is about Awakening the Heart! It is time to face our “shadow” side of relationships (all relationships) and move away from them. This is accented even more as Venus (feminine energy) and Mars (male energy) are traveling together at this Full Moon Eclipse, in Aries which is about Action!!! The Universe is getting urgent and is saying that the time is Now! Are you listening?
During this Leo Full Moon Eclipse Saturn is sitting right on The Galactic Center, which is a portal to the Universe and the center of our Galaxy. When the Galactic Center is activated by major astrological configurations, it widens….helping with the birthing of the “New”, which is still in progress. We receive down loads of knowledge and a lot of energetic support from the Universe, through this portal…..to help humanity, the planet, and ourselves, release old belief systems in all areas……so we can move into and co-create the “New.” It also helps us to discover the “Oneness” and how we are interconnected…..throughout all Galaxy’s. We begin to actually see and feel the “Bigger” meaning of life…..and through the activation of the Galactic Center we can feel the level of the collective consciousness expanding!
At this Full Leo Moon/Lunar Eclipse….much will be focused on communication within relationships of all kinds. Including international…..as Saturn (government, military, cooperate America and the father figure) is sitting on the Galactic Center in Sagittarius (international, law, published authors…master teachers etc.) and is in a Trine (harmonious aspect) with Uranus in the Cardinal T-Square. There are lots of energies to work with at this Leo Full Moon/Eclipse…. as we continue moving forward in our Evolution and the “new” that we are co-creating! Remember…Growth is rarely easy and creativity is born out of Chaos!
Right now as we are co-creating a “new world”… a new reality…. full of Love and coming from the Heart….is major! The Universe is speaking loudly! With Saturn in Sagittarius…we need to speak and come from the Heart….with all beings….. throughout our Galaxy (Aquarius Sun – Full Moon, Saturn on the Galactic Center) and with all countries throughout the Earth. The Universe has given us everything we need…… and tells us everything we need to know to be able to use these wisdoms…..for all humanity…..if we will listen! It is time for us to share what we know….no one is better than anyone else and we all have something important and transforming to share with someone! Listen and share with compassion!
This powerful Full Leo Moon/Lunar Eclipse is also happening on the back drop of a powerful Cardinal T-Square.
Below I am going to briefly describe the Cardinal T-Square (which consist of Pluto, squaring Uranus/Eris, and then squaring Jupiter)….so you will have a better understanding of the energies. The Square energies are about friction and stress….these 4 planets are not getting along very well. The symbol in the chart looks like a T laid out over the chart.
- Uranus (is the constant of change, thinking outside the box and into the future with a focus on community and humanity, revolution and freedom) and Eris (chaos, discord, jealousy) and both are in Aries (the warrior, crusader, the initiator, action, the pioneer, ego). So Uranus/Eris are in Aries and they are saying… that we need to change and think outside the box so we can see the big picture and move into the future. We need to focus on community/humanity; we need to move from the “Me” to the “We.” Both of them are about change with some chaos.
- Pluto (transformation, evolution, natural shamanism, Earth Spirituality, sex, death) is being squared by Uranus/Eris in Aries and Pluto is saying:… that it only cares about the transformation of your Soul and the Soul of the Earth, Pluto does not care about Ego, what kind of car you drive, how much money you make etc., it only cares about your Soul, and it demands integrity and respect for all. Pluto is in Capricorn (which rules Corporate America, the Government, the Banks, the Military etc.).
- Jupiter (international, questing for knowledge, the gypsy energy, Joy, expansion, optimism) in Libra (equal give and take, balance, the “other”, love, Peace, creativity). Jupiter in Libra is talking the language of Love and relationships. Libra is about love and the “other” with equal give and take and Jupiter is about the Joy and optimism of the relationship. In the Cardinal T-Square Jupiter is Squaring Pluto and it is also opposing Uranus/Eris. The Love, optimism and Joy of Jupiter in Libra is also going to be brought into reality….activating many things that will be brought up…to be seen.
- So when we are talking about the Cardinal Energy….it is the energy of birthing of new, change and urgency!
It is time we realize that we are now actively engaged in a collective shift….much larger then we realized. We each have a role in this collective shift…..Meditate and ask….what your role is… not only in your own personal shift…..but the shift of the collective.
This energy on the gray side could bring themes of conflict, drama, control, manipulation, lies, secrets etc. There could also be issues around shared resources….investments and in some instances there could be issues around sexuality and urges. With Uranus involved some triggers might be…sudden changes, accidents, rebellion, a need for independence. At best this can be a very transformative (Pluto) intense energy…..rebirth energy around our ambitions and Uranus could bring about “change” very quickly while bringing us tremendous insights….for ourselves and for all humanity! It is a time of things being put right in our faces….right in our faces when it comes to communicating and sharing our knowledge……while we demand integrity and respect for what we share!
At this Full Moon… we also have the theme of seeking Freedom and independence (Aquarius Sun)…..in both how we express ourselves creatively (Leo Moon) and through our work situations. Or you may be trying to avoid controlling situations….so you can see situations that don’t vibrate where you vibrate. You may find yourself doing some “shadow” work during this Leo Full moon with the powerful Cardinal T-Square as the back drop! Except it….and know that you are now strong enough to face those “Shadows” and begin to “heal” them!
This Full Moon is focusing on the power of Unity. We are learning to balance community (Aquarius) with individuality (Leo). Being and honoring Community……while honoring our individuality. We are all One……it is time to embody this message!!! It is time to unite instead of divide. It is time to bring a balance between speaking our truth about our needs and priorities…..while honoring in an effective and loving way the same in others.
During this Full Moon release what is no longer working. Release the old to make way for the new. Think and meditate on everything the Universe has given you, all the knowledge and the nudges…listen! Ask for guidance on what you should release. Focus on coming from the Heart at all times. The “new” is about thinking with the Heart ! Take time to play and be happy. Party….have some fun and romance. Find the child within you and spread the Joy!
