Your Full Moon In Leo Horoscope & Reflection, According To Your Zodiac Sign

In the midst of quite the dynamic Aquarius season  — Mercury Rx in Pisces and Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn — a vibrant full moon will take center stage in the flamboyant sign of Leo on Feb. 8, 2020, at exactly 2:33 AM. Just moments before the witching hour, this lunation will be as theatrical as it is liberating, but there are a few things I want to share with you first. Leo is ruled by the Sun and just like the Sun’s almighty rays, its fixed fires perfectly emanate joy, fertility, and divinity. Leo is a symbol of your soul’s truth and inner child; its cabaret-like essence puts a spotlight on your spiritual luminance. What part of you’s most likely to light up a room? What superlative are you most likely to win? There’s a magnificent aura about each and every one of you and that’s exactly where the magic happens. Something else to keep in mind is, full moons take place when la luna is sitting directly opposite the Sun. Remember, this is also taking place in the zodiac wheel, which means the moon will always be across from the Sun throughout the full moon phase. For instance, during this upcoming full moon, the moon will be in Leo and the Sun will be activating the rebellious sign of Aquarius. Full moons challenge us to create a balance between our physical and emotional world; it's yin (the moon, divine feminine) coming face-to-face with yang (the sun, sacred masculine) to create harmonious energy flow. So what exactly happens when the moon reaches her peak of fullness in a charismatic fire sign like Leo?

La Luna is a representation of your shadow self and innermost feelings; it’s your sense of nurture and first instinct when emotionally triggered. Hint: Check which house(s) belong(s) to Leo in your birth chart; this will give you more clarity on the culmination of this lunation. The same goes for the Sun as it will be traveling through eccentric Aquarius, shedding light on your social consciousness and unique individuality in the physical dimension. Speaking of which, does this coincide with your shadow self? Are you living your truth? Trust me, I know how cliche that sounds, especially when reading astrology-related content, but I’m asking you that sincerely. Do your actions stem from your most genuine instincts? Or is there something stifling your authenticity? These are the things to consider during the full moon phase, and this is especially true when the Sun and Moon are activating the Leo-Aquarius axis.  TBH, I believe the axis of Leo-Aquarius is the “ego” of the zodiac; Leo is the star of the show and Aquarius is the entire stage. For instance, think about the things that speak to your heart and bring you genuine joy. This is what Leo is all about; it's a symbol of your unique light and colorful spirit. However, there is no such thing as an individual without a community, which means now is a time for you to reflect on ways you can share your light with the rest of the world. Leo loves the glitz and glam but Aquarius prefers to think logically, so how can we upgrade our vibration and confidence levels without losing sight of our role in society. 

What are you projecting towards the rest of the world? Is it authentic? Does it make you feel confident? What inspires you? Leo has quite a courageous heart, so there is no need to feel intimidated by this energy. The Moon will be in harmonious energy flow to Mars in Sagittarius, amidst a lovely sextile with the Sun in Aquarius. This is spontaneous enthusiasm and sizzling passion. Mars is a carnal warrior and while its desires may very well spark impulsiveness, the key is to find an outlet where you can express your inner fire. The Moon will also quincunx Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn; this will bring you closer to your creative intuition and psychic awareness but more importantly, present you with the opportunity to awaken. A joyful life awaits.

This is what I call a celebratory full moon, Aries! The whole world feels like an intoxicatingly inspiring muse these days, and you’re feeling totally inspired. For a lot of you, this inspiration is stemming from your professional sphere, adding color to your future visions and individual sense of belonging in the world. So, what’s next? What’s stopping you from chasing your dreams, Aries? With your passionate planetary ruler Mars in Sagittarius — via your expansive ninth house of luck, goals, and unknown territory — you’re mentally preparing yourself for everything that’s waiting for you on the other side of the horizon. There’s something in the wind and you can feel it. Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: If your heart had a voice, what would it say? How are you honoring your individual passions? 


Re-adjust your crown, Taurus. Something tells me you’ve been letting it slide, and it’s time you remember who you are. This lunation will likely have you reflecting on the dynamic between your personal and professional life but for some of you, it might very well shed light on what’s been lacking in these areas, in terms of your self-confidence and sense of authority. Themes related to your well being (i.e. the amount of rest you get regularly, your levels of nutrition and more) will be top of mind during this time. Are you proud of your current routine, Taurus? If you can’t nurture your heart and emotional well being, then you can’t expect to show up to work every single day without consequences. Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: How can you integrate self-love with your emotional wellness? What parts of yourself make you feel the most confidence?


Your thoughts color your world, Gemini. This is especially true with La Luna shaking up your chatty third house of communication, thought process and immediate exchanges. Although, with go-getter Mars igniting your committed seventh house of partnerships, something tells me this lunation will be shedding light on the conversations taking place with your significant other and/or perhaps your business partners. Are you being authentic with your delivery, Gemini? Are you avoiding confrontations entirely? Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: Are you incorporating too much and/or not enough ego in your exchanges? Is there an authentic conversation that needs to be had?


We know there’s nothing better than the royal treatment… but is it in the scope of your budget, Cancer? With the North Node in your sign, it’s no wonder so many of you are indulging in your solitude and doing what emotionally fulfills you. However, it’s important that you don’t lose sight of what really matters. The moon will light up your pleasure-seeking second house of value and self-worth, so why not invest your time, money and energy into something you’re really proud of? You get as much as the work you put in, so don’t be afraid to build a solid relationship with the money you earn. Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: Are you over-indulging or spending above your means? How can you experience fulfillment while being practical?


Happy full moon, Leo! There’s no one in the zodiac who can celebrate better than you and well, this vibrant lunation has your pretty little name on it. Full moons bring culminations and completion, which means this will likely be a manifestation period for you. Speaking of which, it’s about time you celebrate! In harmony with go-getter Mars — via your expressive fifth house of romance, creativity and passion — this lunation will be blazing with delicious opportunity. I always tell you this but you only get one full moon a year, so make sure you take advantage of this festive occasion. Are you working on a secret passion project? Have you considered being your own boss? Your truth will set you free, so shout it from the rooftops. Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: Are you comfortable with feeling a sense of pride with all you’ve accomplished? How can you celebrate your wins more often?


Self-care is a form of self-love, Virgo. Seriously, when was the last time you pampered yourself, or asked for a much-needed day off from work? La luna will activate your 12th house of secrets, mysticism and hidden unconscious, and since full moons typically bring things to the light, this lunation could come with a powerful revelation of sorts. This area of your chart also revolves around sacrifice and self-undoing, and with Mercury Rx shaking up your committed seventh house of partnerships, something tells me this release has something to do with a significant other. Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: Is your soul sitting on its cosmic throne? What’s stopping you from forgiving and surrendering to the universe?



It’s time for you and your soul tribe to come together, Libra. Despite your innate desire for romantic companionship, you’d strongly benefit from spending time with like-minded groups of individuals who share similar aspirations. This area of your chart also rules technology so if you’ve been collaborating with peers via social media, or entertaining the idea of it being a possibility, this lunation might be a turning point. In harmony with assertive Mars — via your chatty third house of communication, thought process, and immediate network — these lunar rays will blaze with enthusiasm and delicious opportunity. Keep in mind, your darling ruling planet will also be dancing over your committed seventh house of partnerships, caramelizing your one-on-one relationships and general sense of compromise. Are you ready to collab Libra? Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: Are your hopes, wishes and dreams coming to fruition? How have you expressed and shared your light with your soul tribe?


You are the star of the show, Scorpio. Leo governs your tenth house of fame, recognition and destiny in the world, which is why you effortlessly stand out in a crowd. Whether it be the hypnotic gaze stemming from your bedroom eyes or the unstoppable Plutonian charisma you carry in and all around you, it all comes to life via your cinematic 10th house. Speaking of which, the full moon will ignite this area of your chart and this will, in turn, bring a powerful turning point to your professional life. If you’ve been reflecting on career moves or perhaps considered working on a creative project of sorts, now is your time to shine. Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: What are you most proud of in your professional life? How has your career and destiny in the world evolved since?


Just go for it, Sagittarius. It’s that simple. This sunkissed lunation will ignite your expansive ninth house of education, travel, higher learning and endless possibilities, but there’s more. Sitting in harmony with go-getter Mars in your sign, this full moon will not only bring you much-needed clarity and closure, in regard to your faith and long-term goals, it will also be jotling with enthusiasm, and red-hot passion. What are you afraid of? Stop standing in the way of your happiness and success. Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: Have you been putting energy and vitality into your goals for 2020? Do your plans feel larger than life itself?


Allow yourself to feel your feelings, Capricorn. Trust me, I know how challenging it is for you to indulge in your genuine happiness and sultry desires, but there’s a time and place for everything. By no means am I judging this side of you; on the contrary, I admire your self-discipline and perseverance immensely, but this is your heart we’re talking about here. It’s your joy, and your genuine ability to love and be loved in return. That said, this lunation will feel more intense than usual as it will activate your seductive eighth house of sex, intimate unions and joint ventures. Obsessive is an understatement, so don’t lose your balance. Instead, find the magic that exists in the act of merging with another mind, body and soul. Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: Have you been denying important parts of you? Are you being authentic with your intimate partners?


Seal the deal, Aquarius. For the record, this could be the exact opposite taking place, but I think you know what I mean. It’s time to make a decision and with the moon igniting your committed seventh house of one-on-one partnerships, something tells me you’ll be focusing on your long-term happiness and what’s actually worth it in terms of your relationships, both personally and professionally. Sitting in harmony with assertive Mars — via your 11th house of friendship groups and soul tribe — this lunation will blaze with eccentricity and eclectic opportunity. Are you getting FOMO, Aquarius? Whether you’re re-thinking your current relationship or making exciting new connections, this is your official cue from the heavens. Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: Are your current partnerships giving you the attention/praise you crave and deserve? Are you willing to ask for what you desire?


The spotlight’s on you… I mean on your current habits, Pisces! Enough is enough and you know (that I know that you know) you’ve been slacking on your health habits, and routine. Hey, this is a judge free zone but Leo is majestic and royal, which means it wants the exact same for your day-to-day life. That said, la luna will ignite your orderly sixth house of health, due diligence and daily regimen, so there’s no doubt you’ll be given a playful reality check in this area of your life. However, this sunkissed lunation will also be in harmony with Mars — via your ambitious tenth house of career — so something tells me you’ll be feeling as brave as ever, too! What’s next in terms of your professional life? Does your current routine make you legitimately happy? It’s time to get to work, Pisces. Something as simple as getting organized could go a long way. Besides, it’s time you start delegating and taking pride in your lifestyle. Think back to the new moon in Leo that took place on July 31, 2019: Does your wellbeing get the same attention you give away to everyone else? What is it going to take for you to tackle your daily duties like the superstar you are?
