As a Leo Sun I have to admit to loving the energy of the Moon in Leo so I’m rather excited about this upcoming Full Moon in this fiery and creative sign.
When Moon is in Leo we’re more energetic and optimistic, feel like can do everything. We crave appreciation and compliments, and should be generous with kind words to others.
It’s good time for celebration, presentations, social events . Leo is a fire sign with the characteristics of generosity, charisma and strength. You may experience great bursts of energy followed by the need to recharge under Leo’s influence.

Working with the Full Moon
The Full Moon is the half way point in the lunar cycle occurring two weeks between one New Moon and the next, creating an energetic climax of our monthly lunar experience.
A full lunar cycle has eight phases beginning with the New Moon and moving through: the Waxing Crescent, First Quarter, Waxing Gibbous, Full Moon, Waning Gibbous, Last Quarter and Waning Crescent.
To find out more about working with the phase check out my blog – Working with the Moon: What You Need to Know
During the Waxing Phases (New Moon to Full Moon) the energy builds, moonlight increases and we are encouraged to grow and evolve. Once we pass the Full Moon and she begins to wane in both energy and light we are encouraged to release and let go
The cyclic flow of building and releasing is a healthy practice which encourages continuous forward movement aided by the release of that which no longer serves. Finding this flow is your own life will benefit your greatly.
At the Full Moon we experience the opposing energies of the Sun and the Moon. Oppositions can be challenging, but with all challenges there are many lessons to learn which will support your growth.
At this energetic high we must do the work necessary to make things happen as this is not a time to sit back idly and wait for the good stuff to come along. Be prepared to go after what you want as only you know what that is!
The February Full Moon is happening at 20 degrees in Leo
Leo energy is very passionate and dramatic and when working with this energy we are given the opportunity to go for the things we desire the most. What have you always wanted to do, have or be?
Tapping into this Leo full moon energy will help you to embrace your uniqueness without the need for acceptance and approval, which are often the things that are holding us back.
Also take this time to explore your creativity in whatever form that takes for your. Creativity is a great way to express yourself as well as heal from past trauma.
It’s time to embrace your true creative self – The Full Moon in Leo

On the Queen’s Moon we take charge of a situation. It’s a day for leadership. If leadership isn’t your thing, do something nice for a woman who is in a position of leadership and power in the outside world, and whom you respect. It’s a way of showing appreciation for honorable and skilled leadership.Moon Phase Astrology – Raven Kaldera
Leo Moons are full of action. This is a period for tackling big projects, working out giving a talk, shopping for beautiful items, or entertaining friends.Moon Power – Simone Butler
