Insights into the astrological energies of the moment
This commentary is based on an esoteric interpretation of the full moon energies.
Sun in Leo
As we progress along our journey through the stars, the Sun now turns its attention towards the constellation of Leo. The Sun has a special relationship with Leo, as in traditional astrology it rules this sign. The sign of Leo is unique as it is the only sign that is ruled by a star and not a planet, and this on all 3 levels of consciousness. This alone gives a key to the power of Leo, but the fact that it is opposite the sign Aquarius and the fact that we are moving into the Age of Aquarius means that it is always an interesting time when the attributes of the Sun are heightened more than usual.
Identification with the Divine
The keynote for Leo is “I am that and that am I“, which would indicate a strong point of identification with the Divine and with the Soul. In a way there is a duality here, as we strive to identify ourselves as a point of light, yet still be part of the greater whole.
Matters of the heart will be highlighted
Leo is said to rule the area of the heart in the body, hence many references for Leo types to be brave, strong and have courage, yet also to be generous and give to those around them. Expect matters of the heart to be highlighted at the time of the full moon and just before, as humanity seeks to know itself and once knowing itself, know that others are that same spark of self.
A great time to take rulership of one’s own life
The challenge is to take it one step further

It is for rulership over one’s own nature that the energy can best be used.
Full moon in Aquarius
At the time of the full moon, the actual moon will be in Aquarius. Aquarius as a moon sign has a detached airiness about it, perhaps important with the heightened emotion that is about at the moment. This detachment can seem aloof and cool, distant and remote. When it comes to emotions, it might be a positive thing at this time. It will certainly bring a stronger impulse to think and feel in a more humanitarian group-focused and inclusive way. The question is whether the detachment that comes from an Aquarius moon can be used positively and not as a removal from the responsibility for those feelings.
Cancer flavours this chart
The ascendant, and therefore ruler, of this chart at the time of the full moon is Cancer, which again continues our run of water signs as ascendants. Cancer flavours this chart with a continual emphasis on sensitivity, the home, family, security and one’s borders. The esoteric ruler of Cancer is Neptune, which is sitting in Pisces in the 8th house. This is a strong placement as it is in another water sign. Expect healing, art and music to find expression through delving deep within, as well as death to outer used-up forms and the transcendence of matter into spirit.
