This Sunday, 5th February, brings an exciting and chaotic full moon in Leo that will ignite our passions and desires — as well as our individuality. The lunation, which occurs at 1:28 p.m. is set to bring change and shifts in unexpected ways that will augment the current direction of our lives. 

The day before the full moon, Venus and Mars square off. Passion, desire, and aggression are themes that can come into play. Therefore, it’s important to take control over our emotions — which may be extremely hard to do. Two days before the full moon, “Great Awakener” planet Uranus, who is in the fixed earth sign, Taurus, activates the sun in Aquarius to reveal its true self. As Uranus is the modern planetary ruler of Aquarius (the traditional planetary ruler is Saturn), this will have an immense impact on us. Combined, the aspects of 3rd and 4th February contribute to the erratic and uncertain nature of the full moon. 

The day of the full moon, we will experience the emotionality of our chart and hearts waking up. Uranus connects with the moon on 5th February and asks us to express our innermost feelings to the world without hesitating. Since Mars in Gemini is giving an extra push for us to state our deepest sentiments, we’ll be inclined to let them be known. Think of the energy of this full moon to act like a truth serum — everything we’ve been feeling, from the good, the bad, and the ugly is coming out. 

Understandably, arguments can ensue if we don’t use the right words or are callous in our haste to make an exit out of toxic dynamics. Even though we are longing to embrace our freedom, we will want to be kind to others since Mercury in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces harmonise the following day. No matter what’s said on 5th February, the next day brings regret and apologies, which is why it’s wise to be compassionate to others as well as ourselves through the whole dramatic process. 

The reason why we’re speaking up and asserting our power is because Mars and Uranus want us to break free and out of circumstances that aren’t working for us anymore. The veil has been lifted from our eyes and we can see what change has to take place in order for us to be successful and joyful. We are ready to move forward. What actions should take place? Don’t let self-deception hold you back. The only thing to do is to ask yourself if you are genuinely happy in these situations and dynamics. If you’re not, then you know it’s time to start anew in another direction. Honesty and self-love are taking us towards our goals and we are going to be able to achieve bliss from being truthful and real with ourselves. 

Our need to control situations and others may keep us in unhealthy relationships and situations. Also, the fear of change and growth that most of us carry deep down within ourselves. Stepping out of our comfort zones — no matter if it’s a negative or positive experience — is hard because we are creatures of habit. It’s hard for us to reimagine life due to the consistency we crave as humans. Without transformation, things will stay the same forever. Although it can be challenging to evolve, advancement and progress are necessary elements of life. If we don’t make the change — the universe will for us without our hands guiding the course. Let go or be dragged.
