There are many layers to this Full Moon so I encourage you to vibe with what you feel. My interpretations are only here as fuel to inspire your own sacred connection with the energy of the Moon.
The February Full Moon falls on the 8th or 9th of the month, depending on your time zone. It rests in the sign of Leo, and its energy comes to tend to the fire that lives within our hearts.
It comes to clear away all that dims our light and separates us from feeling connected to our journey.
Leo is ruled by the Sun, so whenever we have a Full Moon in the sign of the Sun, it’s extra special.
When Leo holds space for the Full Moon, its like a ray of light shining down on all that feels dark and heavy in our lives.
Leo is a fire sign that reminds us to connect with all that lights us up. It reminds us to connect with our inner fire, with our inner Sun, and to remember that life is for experiencing rather than controlling.
What sets your soul on fire? What fans your inner flame? What brings you a sense of purpose as you move through the experiences of life?
These are some of the questions the February Full Moon poses for us. It wants us to connect with these questions so we can work on clearing away all separates us from feeling present and at peace with our lives.
There is something strengthening, motivating, and restorative about this Full Moon too, not just because it falls in the sign of Leo the lion, but also because it forms a harmonious alignment with the planet of motivation, Mars.
Mars will be like a motivational speaker at our side, championing us along as we take on any challenges or projects during this time.
Mars’ energy will help inspire us to push past any fears that are holding us back or keeping our inner light small.
If there are fears you have been holding onto, if there are things you would rather not look at, or pains that have felt just too heavy to carry, allow a little space for this Full Moon energy to hold you.
Allow a little space for this Full Moon to start moving and shifting things out of your body, out of your mind, out of your heart, and out of your life.
Full Moons are always portals for releasing, so if we tune in and allow the Full Moon’s energy to infuse with our own, we will find ourselves supported to let go of all that no longer serves.
February’s Full Moon is also linked back to August of 2019. Every August brings the Lionsgate Portal which falls when the Sun is in Leo.
Now that we have the Full Moon in Leo, we may find ourselves revisiting themes that were happening for us during Lionsgate of last year.
We may even find ourselves harvesting whatever seeds we had planted during this time.
We tend to forget that Full Moons are also harvest or culmination points where we can reap the benefits of all we have sown over the last six months.
If there is something you have wanted to do, something you have wanted to try, something you have wanted to say, this Full Moon will give you the dose of self-belief and self-confidence that you need.
Its energy is there for us to use, but it’s only real if we act on it, if we let it in, if we allow it to guide us.
While I always post a Full Moon Ritual, this is definitely one of those Full Moons where you want to set an intention to push past a fear or barrier in order to breakthrough to the other side.
As long as we are moving from the heart, we should allow ourselves the freedom to try, fail, learn, and everything in between.
Put yourself on the line, even if it makes you feel vulnerable, even if it’s scary, because that’s how you grow, that’s how you learn, that’s how you keep leveling up on your journey.
There is another interesting energy at play at this Full Moon that deserves a whole article of its own, and this is the meeting of Venus and Black Moon Lilith.
I will go into more detail about this in another article, but this alignment will also support finding our strength and confidence and breaking away from any chains or restraints that have held us back.
Overall, the February Full Moon is a time to stand in our power. It is a time to connect to our higher selves, and to walk in alignment with our highest calling. It is a time to connect to our own inner Sun, the core of who we are.
There is a Sanskrit mantra that recently came into my awareness which I feel supports this Full Moon energy perfectly- “Aham Brahmasmi” which according to Deepak Chopra, translates to- “the core of my being is the ultimate reality.”
Feel into those words for a moment. Allow yourself to meditate on them. In astrology, the core of who we are is represented by the Sun, and with the Full Moon in the ruler of the Sun, we can all dive deep and feel into the truth of whatever our reality is.
