Snow moon: Storm Moon
Full Moon in Leo
February 07, 2012
On February 07, 2012, at 4:54pm and 1:54 the Full moon will enter Leo at 18 degrees (plus or minus 6 degrees this is a very inspirational aspect for fixed signs (Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio) great endings and wonderful new beginings.
Every 29.5 days the moon opposites the sun and through the sun rays it resembles a perfect lamination disk. But the full moon was also used for scheduling and keeping track of time. According to ancient writings the full moon helped the natives keep track of earth’s behavior pattern from weather to animal behavior. To signify when it was time to gather, hunt, fish and enjoy.
The first full moon in February is known as the “Storm Moon or Snow moon” this was a time when the weather was its worst. Thus causing hunters and gathers to feel difficultly to move around to hunt and gather materials for the spring. This is often true today. The weather patterns which have occurred in the mid west and north east and even south east parts of United States have felt the jolt of the snow and blizzard like conditions in the month of February.
This moon will defiantly be an eye opening for many. On February 03, 2012, Neptune will enter Pisces and we know Neptune rules Pisces, it is a very dreamy state and will remain there for quite sometime. Saturn will also retrograde for Libra which will be a sign of relief for many until June 25, 2012. This is not a negative cancellation rather a positive the main reasoning is that light has brought a day of dawning which allows lighthearted and playful tendencies where nothing matter but the freedom of expression.
Depending upon how powerful the moon is in ones chart the effect could very by intensity but there is no uncertainty that this energy creates an inner pull, fullness – and may help us to connect with others. Everything becomes comprehensible and more powerful under the light of the Full Moon – passion and self-esteem can become quite inflated, and there may even be more focus to bring peace and romance in areas of relationships. The energy is so intense that incandescent dreams are predictable. Bleeding and hemorrhaging are more likely during a Full Moon, so take care. This is the time to gather, meditate and be Thankful, and to work on fruitfulness and success. Love and Romance go wild under a Full Moon, especially around midnight. In a full moon you may become highly objective, clear minded and aware of your own needs and the needs of others.
Often full moons are compared to chapters in a book; the notion of creating new chapters in our own lives is like a chapter in a book. Every full moon we create a thesis which means we plan a change intellectually that we need to alter a certain way that we are living our lives. Whether it is the way we look at a situation or deal with dilemmas in our own lives the transformation is imitate because old ways are not working. As the moon begins to move from light to darkness and creates a metamorphism to a New moon we create antithesis. The powerful energy of the new moon will give us clarity we need to find out of our thesis (idea or a change) is it possible or is it a negation which causes a reaction, and we begin to plant the seeds. As the moon orbits to cultivate it self into waxing moon we are reaching to solve conflicts between thesis (ideas or a change) and antithesis (what we need to do to make it happen or what wont work) and this synthesis will allow the truth to form new idea while solving issues that do not work in our lives. In easier terms we could end a chapter in our lives or even began a new one. The full moon will create a sense of highlights creating paragraphs in book called life.
The Moon in Leo may mark a time to organize have a need to dominate family and friends. It marks a time for creativity and entertain. Like the Lion that symbolizes Leo, there is a greater need to be loved and if it is not shared or given this behavior could create scenes of sulking. Care needs to be taken to avoid melodramatic displays to grab the spotlight or leadership positions. There is an emotional need to shine and be praised by others. Expression of feelings may be in a childlike manner – either playfully or spectacularly. There is a natural tendency to be around children. Nurturing others by giving honor and encouraging them to be tough, daring and courageous is the key of Leo’s strength. There is also a desire to view a mother or a motherly figure to be magnificent, stunning or prominent person, and look for independence, warmth and strength in that relationship.
The Leo energy can sometimes cause us to be more narrow-minded, obstinate, pompous, annoyed, pretentious, narcissistic, patronizing. It’s harder (but not impossible) to make changes or be flexible, Since the Moon is the closest ‘Planet’ to Earth, and this satellite literally zips around the Zodiac, completing its circuit in less than a month. It also touches us more deeply than most Planets. The influence of this full moon can be especially difficult or challenging for those who were born under a full moon phase, as well as for those of the fixed Sun Signs Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus.
Since, moon in Leo is lighthearted, daring, theatrical, supervisory, and controlled and temperamental. It is my suggestion that you purchase a Green candle and carve your name one through the wick. Anoint the candle with lemon oil or Lavender oil and chant the psalm 65. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Leo moon is:
“Om Sri suryaya namaha”
(Om Shree sur-ya-ya nam-aha)
This mantra will aid greatly in the peaceful and harmonious transition to a new and positive energy states.
With every moon cycle, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is a slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10. This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle. Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I want”, it must be worded “I need to be guided..”
