The full moon for January 2021 comes to us in Leo, and this is the sign of creativity, love, and fun. We can work to connect better with our hearts, and feel more inspired creatively. We can finalize creative plans, finish up creative projects, and eliminate love blocks. We may have less focus for anything that is too much like “work”, and instead want to make more time for play, fun, and romance.
We may want more attention with a Leo full moon, and this can make us a little needy. This is more of an issue if one lacks proper self-esteem, so work on that. We may grow closer with those we love, and feel more of a spiritual connection with them. Any we don’t, we may pull away from.
This full moon is square (hard aspect, 3 signs away) Mars in Taurus (rumblings in a usually stable sign) and opposite Jupiter in Aquarius (rebellion, excitement, science magnified, look for the corona vaccination to become more available), so there is some challenging energy with this full moon. Like: Mars might bring out some fighting energy, and we can be more frustrated and easily irritated. We may need a healthy outlet for frustrations. Jupiter can make us lazier, excessive, or self-centered. We may need to give ourselves some space without pushing everything away, and make sure we’re not over-inflating the ego.
As we approach the end of the zodiac cycle, which is just before the March Equinox, things may feel like they are reaching a climax point.
The Leo Full Moon on January 28-29, 2021, is the second last Full Moon of the zodiac cycle and may trigger this climax point.
We may find all that needs to be revealed coming to the surface.
This is one of those Full Moons that feels like a mixed bag of tricks and perhaps a little chaotic. We may feel knocked off guard or perhaps confused or uncertain about something we were once sure of. Information may come to the surface that challenges us, or we may notice the unraveling of hidden emotions and feelings that were once neatly tucked away. While the alignments around this Full Moon are chaotic, they also indicate cosmic protection, especially if we look to the bigger picture.
No matter what unfolds for us, our power lies in zooming out, looking for the silver lining, and remembering that there is something greater and bigger at play.
This power to trust the bigger picture comes from the auspicious alignment of Jupiter and the Sun, which happens at the same time as this January Full Moon. Jupiter aligning with the Sun is considered a fortunate energy, and a fantastic time for signing new deals, launching an event or business, or experiencing synchronistic opportunities from the Universe.
It is a day that brings abundance and an expansion of our talents and gifts.
Under the influence of the chaotic Full Moon energies, it may be a little harder to connect with this abundant energy, but it does not mean it’s not there.
If we keep our minds open and our vision expanded, we may just be able to find the little jewels that the Universe has to offer us.
Pay attention to the signs of the Universe on this day, and keep your sights set on the bigger picture. Know that if things are confusing, they won’t be that way forever. Clarity will soon dawn, and in time, you may even be able to look back on these events as necessary for the next steps of your journey.
Falling in the sign of Leo, this Full Moon will carry a fiery and creative energy to it. Use this energy to make headway on any new or creative projects you may be working on. It is also great energy for allowing yourself to get motivated and excited by life.
If you are currently living in lockdown, life may have felt a little dull or monatomous. But, this Full Moon is your invitation to bring the excitement back into your life, even if it is just in small ways.
What gets you excited? What is something you can plan this week that you can look forward to?
Creating little things like this through the week is a great way to stay motivated and to use some of this fiery, inspiring energy that the Leo Moon has to offer.
Leo is also about leadership and finding our confidence. How can you step up and be the leader of your life? How can you take responsibility for all you wish to achieve? There are always obstacles in our path, but the courage and determination that Leo energy brings reminds us that we always have the power to make the best of whatever situation we find ourselves in.
Whenever we have strong energy, like we do with this Full Moon, it is easy to fall victim to our fears and to old, familiar habits, even if we know they are not the best for us. It takes courage to rise up from our fears and to remove ourselves from our comfort zones. It takes an inner strength to face adversity and to look at the bigger picture.
These are definitely no easy tasks, but under the bright Leo Full Moon, we will be guided as long as we take the courage to make that first step. Sometimes taking that first step is the hardest part, but also the most rewarding.
What first step do you wish to take?
Set your intention and you may just find the light of the Full Moon guiding your way.
Leo is also heart-centered energy, so open your heart to the Universe and to the unseen journey of your life. Open your heart to yourself, and remember just how brave and bold you are.
Overall, the January Full Moon may knock us off balance, but it also brings us courage, motivation, and the gift of being able to look beyond what we can just see and into the bigger picture vision of our lives.
