9 Ways to Love: LEO FULL MOON of Jan 23, 2016

As we move from the results-oriented Capricorn New Moon energy of January 9th, we are nudged to explore a thrilling creative playground of the culminating Leo Full Moon on January 23rd, exact at 3 Leo 29’ at 8:45 pm EST.




This is a very creative Moon, and perhaps not so let loose out-of-control creative, as it is…




…set it free creative (Saturn trine Uranus approaching).




As we allow the heart-centered Leo energy to come through fully, we need to be in the awareness of the transiting Mercury energy pull, stationary direct at 15 degrees of Capricorn.  It is in an exact alignment with Pluto, the Shaman, in a surprisingly dynamic square with the rule-breaker Uranus of a new awakened electrified awareness and unburdened individuality.




What is asking to be expressed...






Venus also enters the achievement-oriented Capricorn just hours before the full moon.




The Leo Full Moon is ruled by the polar-opposite Sun in the individualistic and always-needing-to-be-special-even-if-they-send-me-away-because-I-am-different-cause-truth-is-truth-is-truth Aquarius.




Leo energy and essence requires a creative fun playground to thrive.




Leo is charismatic as it is confident in its light.




Leo spontaneously celebrates self.




Capricorn is self-disciplined and with that…self-censored.




Both Leo and Capricorn love tangible and love a form of expression, love to share their creative process and what is possible to be built and birthed when we surrender to it fully.




Leo needs and craves applause (seeking approval outside), while Capricorn needs recognition (anchored in the inner integrity of self-respect).




Leo is stylish and elegant in its desire to impress.  Capricorn is impressive in its deep-seated need to do purposeful work and show you why the step-by-step progress (or “the climb”) is important.




Leo must show itself.



It must perform and express the essence of how it feels to be full of itself, that is full of life.  Some may call it an ego-centric perspective, but for Leo (as it is for our inner joy child) it is a transcendence of oneness that is the goal here.



In oneness, we are pure joy.



In selfness, we are joy aware of itself.



One is not better than the other; it’s just a different way of expanding consciousness, with new levels of awareness available to us (and to all who are connected to us).




Mercury Stations in Capricorn - Jan 22-28, 2016





If you choose to tune into this intensely creative moon, even if a bit stormy one that may surprise you, you will be rewarded with brand new, exciting, and re-awakened ideas, clarity of focused thought, and plenty of inspiration to envision and plan your best year yet.




But you need to breathe it in with an open heart.  To act it out, to exaggerate if needed, so that those on the other side of the lens don’t confuse your stoic (Capricorn) appearance with cold-heartedness.




To show yourself – and share of yourself – is the higher ground here.





Here are 9 ways to love and 9 ways to celebrate this heart-opening Leo Full Moon:






 1. Map out your 2016 plans or goals until you feel you have stepped out of your heart center (when it’s no longer fun for the day, then continue tomorrow.)






2. Take on a creative practice between now and February 8th (the next New Moon). It can be as simple as a 9-min free movement flow practice (in your own style).  Or it can be using a larger sketch pad to map out your goals visually, rather than using a regular notebook or typing them out on your computer.






3. Hug those around you a little tighter, a little longer, but not from the place of fear, but from the place of “we are love and joy no matter what”.





4. Hug your inner child and let her roam for a day, or just a few moments longer than usual, while allowing a tidbit more awareness of how serious you can be and how fun you are at the same time, when you allow your inner joy, your inner youth, to come through freely. And be that.




You mean what is the purpose of life- It is Joy. What is the reason for life- It is JoyWhat is the basis of life- It is FreedomWhat is the result of life- It is Expansion (1)






5. Journal or mediate on these questions. Ask for 1 to 3 words only to come through and be with that awareness for a minute, heart-aware and full.  Or numb and wishing to feel it more fully.  It’s ok just to let it be for a moment or two until it comes through with a flutter of pure untethered joy and deeper level of clarity…or pure expression or sensation that doesn’t have to be anything in particular but a new personally experienced and embodied code for a flavor of love.




Don’t expect or invite your monkey mind to know how to tackle these questions, they are designed for your higher self that knows you better than anyone, beyond the physical egoic limited understanding of who you figure you are:




What energy am I here to express and celebrate?



What IS my primary language? 



What vibration am I here to hold?







And allow it in.





6. Focus on your heart and its energy, once twice three times a day today. Heart is where your truth resides, where non-physical and physical dimension spontaneously and freely connect.  It is where we can open or close our connection with anything.




7. Schedule in some fun. You have heard that before, but would you like to truly stop for a moment to take it in.  Take a millisecond longer today to remember one activity or one person or one creature or one energy that reminds you how to do and be that.  Go ahead and send your love to them.

8. Affirm these mantras spontaneously:




I AM pure love and joy.




I embrace my creativity and my inner child with ease.




It is safe to be me.  I am free to be me now.




I enjoy and delight in my unique self-expression.





9. Most of all: do you.  Worry a little less about doing it right.  There is no right in Leo, there is only playful and exciting.  Sure, we have the intense Mercury/Pluto in Capricorn with a huge window of purposefulness, urging us to zoom in on the crystal clarity of our message, and even eradicate the non-essential non-profound thought.

But Mercury is stationing now, which means we are meant to go beyond the obvious understanding of purposeful and dutiful…and superficial.




What if it was time to embrace a more expanded paradigm of purpose and practicality?




What if practicality didn’t have to imply a common ordinary sense, but a creative original sense?




What if our duty was to our soul and our joyous wellbeing first and not to our limited local awareness of self?




What if we are meant to reach for beyond clarity, or form, and cheerfully relate to alive creative consciousness that is behind the form?




Into the ever-expanding light of where pure inspiration comes from…




…where you can never run out of ideas to be (and play with, if you’d like), but only run out of ideas to bound yourself weary with.




To your eternal joy,
