Leo is ruled by the Sun, so whenever we have a Full Moon in the sign of the Sun, it’s extra special.
When Leo holds space for the Full Moon, it’s like a ray of light shining down on all that feels dark and heavy in our lives.
Leo is a fire sign that reminds us to connect with all that lights us up. It reminds us to connect with our inner fire, with our inner Sun, and to remember that life is for experiencing rather than controlling.
What sets your soul on fire? What fans your inner flame? What brings you a sense of purpose as you move through the experiences of life?
There is something strengthening, motivating, and restorative about this Full Moon too, not just because it falls in the sign of Leo the lion, but also because it forms a harmonious alignment with the planet of motivation, Mars.
Mars will be like a motivational speaker at our side, championing us along as we take on any challenges or projects during this time.
Mars’ energy will help inspire us to push past any fears that are holding us back or keeping our inner light small.
Put yourself on the line, even if it makes you feel vulnerable, even if it’s scary, because that’s how you grow, that’s how you learn, that’s how you keep leveling up on your journey.”

Like Saturn, the new moon also falls in sidereal Capricorn, doubling the influence of this practical and determined sign. Specifically, this dark mid-winter moon falls in the Vedic nakshatra, or lunar mansion, known as Shravana. Sometimes called the ear of God, or the star of learning, Shravana magnifies the power to listen and communicate ideas. It also slows things down so you can better absorb knowledge and observe the world around you.
Meanwhile, Saturn’s mission in Capricorn is to build a more solid and sustainable structure for the future. In Vedic Astrology, the sign of Capricorn is called Makara, which means crocodile. Crocodiles are tenacious survivors that take things slow and move with strength. With Saturn in Capricorn, you can work through challenges that may have previously seemed insurmountable, and take on new responsibilities in your work or home life.
Since the beginning of 2017, Saturn has been in the idealistic sign of Sagittarius, creating waves of disillusionment and casting a cynical eye on corruption, hypocrisy, and the unsustainable status quo. Since Saturn refuses to support blind faith in Sagittarius, you may have found yourself chasing your dreams in a sea of self-doubt, or wondering how to move forward. Now, with Saturn in Capricorn until January of 2023, you may find yourself capable of building what before you had only dreamed of.
This Shravana new moon marks a time of profound change. It represents nothing less than a paradigm shift, so be prepared to step into your power as never before.”
