Joy, the Sun is in Aquarius. Not that there was anything wrong with the Sun in Cap BUT it led to rather too much Earth energy & thus a preoccupation with the Past, worldly affairs and all. Now that is still there – how could it not be with Saturn-square-Pluto again? – but there is a big extra ZING in the air as the Sun & Venus in Aquarius race toward conjunctions with magical Chiron & Neptune AND oppositions with Mars.
How does this work? Ideally all the guts and glory of an even retrograde Mars in Leo can be harnessed to service the higher aims & more innovative bent of the Sun & Venus in Aqua. Note also that the Sun, which is in Aquarius now, also rules Leo, where Mars is. This is called Mutual Reception guys and long story, but it’s good. There is also a Leo-Aquarius Full Moon involving Mars. But this is good – recognition is en route for where-ever you are showing off awesome courage & innovation.
So, yes it’s a Full Moon and there are loads of oppositions around but it’s not the Cancerian Full Moon emo-apocalypse tone of that last Eclipse over New Year’s Eve. This could be FUN. But Leo-Aqua energy is also not especially emotional – both signs share a fierce desire to be recognised for individuality and to not be fuqed with. If there’s any chance whatsoever Leo/Aqua can be more successful if single – wham: hello, independence. Neither like to be clung to, unless it’s by a supermodel or an alien.
So it’s not the time to look back and grizzle. It’s the time to shake out your mane, get your nails done, come up with some (more!) clever ideas and get out there to strut thy genius. It’s also about ensuring your efforts benefit the whole group – even if it is just your entourage.
Strange point to ponder: Could the combo of healthy self-love (maybe even a bit pathological but whatevs) a la Leo AND Aquarian diffidence/sci-fi mind way ahead be more helpful to relationships then talking anything through or even knowing what you feel? With this Astroscape, yes.
