This image of the moon was taken shortly before sunrise this morning, so bright it almost looks like the sun💕
Where New Moons symbolize new beginnings, Full Moons symbolize culminations and release.
This is a potent Full Moon for dispelling self doubt, particularly this year with Saturn in Aquarius sitting opposite reminding us of where we have the tendency to feel like an outcast. Our shadow self, which is really just the wounded part of us really just needs a healthy dose of self love and acceptance. If you don’t have an immediate idea of what you need to banish, look into your obsessive thoughts, toxic habits, time-wasting activities, and familiar insecurities. Most of us know exactly which habits aren’t serving us anymore. In particular direct your gaze towards any unworthy notions of yourself — the inner voices that prevent you from expressing the authentic core of your being. Think of this core as a sacred flame that needs to be fed. Passionate, mysterious, forever changing its shape, as it dances and plays with the surrounding world.
Leo Full Moon Ritual:
Set the stage by finding a quiet place to center yourself. Light a candle, symbolizing your inner flame, take a deep breath and go within. Imagine a glowing light in the center of your heart and allow yourself to bask in its warmth. When you can feel its warmth flowing throughout your being invite your inner doubts, toxic habits, obsessive thoughts and feelings, any notion of unworthiness into the warmth of your heart’s love. Invite these places of fear into the light. Into the transformative power of love. Bring them in from the cold and darkness where they have felt so rejected, into the warmth of your inner core. Breathe deeply, welcome these parts of yourself that are simply expressions of where you have experienced rejection back into the fold. Breathe this warmth that you have gathered into these places until you experience a sense of unity and completion knowing that all parts of you are sacred, simply because they belong to you.
