Leo Full Moon - Listen Without Predjudice

"Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible."

— Maya Angelou

This week's Leo Full Moon is a particularly important culmination of this month's transformative Capricorn New Moon (January 12th 9:00 PM 23° Capricorn) which was conjunct Pluto. We arrive at the 'delivery room' this week for the Rebirth of a personal sense of empowerment and creative self-expression after experiencing a number of doubts and questions of self-worth and individual purpose. The groundwork is laid, this week, for the extended Saturn-Uranus square that will be with us for most of this year. Generally, this square represents a conflict between 'old structures and new initiatives'. However, ahead of the first Saturn-Uranus 'square-off', Saturn first forms a sextile to Chiron in Aries, inspiring both perseverance and personal, individual determination. This sextile, within the context of the Saturn-Uranus square, increases our personal investment in these broader conflicts and challenges and encourages individual participation. This Thursday's Leo Full Moon (11:16 AM PST 9° Leo/Aquarius) compounds our personal investment with strong, 'Heart-Centered' compassion. Jupiter is conjunct the Sun, opposing this Full Moon, putting our personal beliefs on the line and exposing vulnerable ego-based attachments to these beliefs. The solution is found in a willingness to listen intently to the perspectives of others with detachment and awareness. Without such willingness, our personal self-doubts will continue to fester. We are presented with the prospect of honoring the challenges (and challengers) of our past and separating our individual identity from an unattainable ideal in order to embrace a sense of self that is grounded in honesty and self-acceptance — 'warts and all'. Ultimately, we will come out of the process on much firmer ground by embracing flexibility and understanding. Of course, compromise is also likely to be required. This is where the involvement of Chiron is most significant. Chiron teaches us how to remain true to ourselves while accepting the perspectives of others. Balancing the honest perspectives of others with our own unique insights is critical to 'anchoring the light' in the midst of the monumental challenges and changes the are sure to accompany the ongoing conflicts between the 'old' and the 'new'. Mercury has been in retrograde territory since January 15th and will provide a welcome opportunity for us to further review how our we may need to adjust our perspectives and beliefs during the upcoming retrograde period from January 30th through February 20th.

We may find frustration on Sunday if we try to demand others to make sense. Inconsistencies abound. We'll do better to simply listen and allow the inconsistencies to reveal themselves, rather than pointing them out. The Cancer Moon on Monday increases our vulnerability to personal challenges to our beliefs and perspectives. Acknowledging our vulnerabilities will help us to prepare for Thursday's Full Moon. There is some sense of excitement on Tuesday even though we may struggle with some personal self doubt. There is growing recognition that we have a personal stake in the 'Big Picture' changes we see going on around us. The VOC Moon in Cancer on Wednesday is especially destabilizing following the Moon-Pluto opposition in the morning. We need to look for approval from within, rather than anchoring our self-worth on the approval of others. Thursday's Full Moon, square Mars and opposing Jupiter suggests impulsiveness and self-indulgence but also compassion. The personal sense of empowerment can serve to expand our willingness to listen to the perspective of others. We may find ourselves somewhat off balance on Friday. It's a good idea to slow down and do more listening than proclaiming. We may feel more comfortable allowing others to maintain their own, individual position on Saturday.
