Pay attention to your behavior and emotional reactions over the next two days. Watch your boundaries, maintain them and respect your and other people’s boundaries. In other words, chill out!
On Friday night, a Full Moon occurs, when the Sun in Aquarius forms an opposition with the Moon in Leo. This Full Moon is especially potent, as it is a Lunar Eclipse. Lunar eclipses are relationship-oriented. The crisis that these eclipses tend to elicit is a crisis of lack – a time when we suddenly recognize a great need or want. Although Lunar eclipses are more relationship-oriented than Solar eclipses, they are not always about relationships between two people. They can ignite awareness of need in other areas of our lives, such as our relationship to work, to our health and bodies, etc. This is a time when matters come to light – things that have been brewing under the surface.
I have said repeatedly about burying issues: “You can only sweep so much dirt under the carpet, eventually there is a lump which cannot be ignored.”
This Lunar Eclipse presses us to look more closely at our needs, lacks, and wants in our lives. The Leo-Aquarius polarity deals with the balance between the personal (Leo) and the impersonal (Aquarius). This Full Moon urges us to strike a balance between romance and friendship. The Leo Moon is proud and intensely individual—not content with simply being just one of the team. The Aquarius Sun, while individualistic as well, values independence and the “team.” The Full Moon illuminates this conflict. Eclipses are tied to changing circumstances.
A Lunar eclipse is a more potent Full Moon, and its effects tend to last longer. The effects of a Lunar eclipse last approximately six months.
Full Moons and Lunar Eclipses bring issues in our lives to fulfillment. Our emotions are heightened, and there is often some sort of drama involved with the house, sign, and any contacted planets activated by the Full Moon. Look at 22-23 degrees of Leo/Aquarius in your own chart. This Lunar Eclipse gives us a push to make needed changes in our lives.
