Full moon in Leo

Updated: Feb 8, 2023

The full moon will be in Leo on February 5th. The full moon is an excellent time for us all to celebrate, and keep in mind that Leo loves getting attention and being in the spotlight. Everyone has a Leo flare in one or more areas in their chart. Full moons represent the realization and fulfillment of dreams, but there could be a potential for loss.

This mark a time for gratitude and or forgiveness. One of the most creative full moons of the entire year is ruled by the sun; it represents the king or queen within us. Where your sun is located represents the divine will to exist and create something of your life. For example, in your chart and the fifth house, you can check which sign the sun is in or where Leo is located. Those are three places in your chart that are significant to the sun.

Leo + Moon Personality

A moon in Leo's personality likes to display emotions, always reflected in need for approval. Leo is a fixed fire sign, and their fiery intensity can bring the Moon's light energy to a rapid boil, producing explosive steam. In effect, Leo's fire can energize those functions represented by the moon. These functions can then be seen in an extroverted manner which is not usually the case.

Positive + Negative Qualities

Warm, emotionally expressive and demonstrate, generous, and giving but can be emotionally flamboyant, wearing emotions on your sleeves, pompous and overbearing, and emotionally insecure.

An ability to tap into fire element energy with heart rules head and behavior based on trust and loyalty. Still, it can be emotionally impulsive with a demand for loyalty, calculated behavior to impress, and an overly concerned for appearance and inferiority inferior complex if you do not live up to the strength and power expected of you.

The moon represents the mother, and the moon in Leo will signify you had strong role models, were creatively stimulated, and had a strong emotional bond to your family or mother based on warmth and loyalty and family expectations that encouraged achievements. On the other side, this can symbolize an overbearing mother/family, which causes conflicts or dependence. The feeling of always being shown off can prompt shyness, and unrealistic expectations of your creativity and success (status display) can create a sense of inferiority.

Transcendental Power

Moon in Leo can be manifested as a state where you possess generous warmth and freely express goodwill to all. You can shine and send forth rays of emotional peace and joy. This is if you have made peace with your inner self and cleared away your subconscious shadow, removing your dark conditioning. This is your root nature if you bring forth your inner power, which will give you a courageous heart.

The full moon in Leo is good for Aries, Geminis, Leos, Librans, Sagittarians, and Aquarians but might be challenging for everyone else.


Mighty and proud- possibly too proud.

Questions to ask during the full moon:

  1. Have I been too self-centered, egotistical, or proud?

  2. Do I treat people around me like minions?

  3. Am I arrogant, vain, pushy, or pompous?

  4. Do I express myself creatively enough?

  5. Do I show myself enough self-love?

This is an excellent time to find a balance between your needs and those of others, such as friends and family. It is also a perfect time to practice forgiveness; this can be done by writing a list of forgiveness and burning it. Being grateful is a great way to use this Moon in Leo energy, and you can write a list of the things you are thankful for and burn it.

Take a look at your chart

The Leo full Moon will influence everyone, and this can manifest in one or more areas in your chart. The Sun rules the sign of Leo and is the universal symbol of consciousness and the power to overcome ignorance. The Sun also rules the 5th house, the house of children, gambling, and taking risks.

Look at your natal chart to see planets or points in your 5th house. Are they easily flowing or aspected in a problematic way?

Which planet is your sun located in? If the planet is aspected harmoniously, this will be an easy time, and you will feel supported. Stressful contacts with your Sun should be noted and looked at as opportunities for growth.

If you are stressed under this Leo full Moon, be contemplative than reactive and let whatever needs to surface, surface. Though the Moon moves through each sign and house quickly, it can leave a lasting impact on your psyche, but your emotions will be transient. Let your emotions settle before taking any action.

3rd House Moon

This is the communication zone, and you might be prone to saying more than you mean. The Full Moon can bring to the surface intense feelings about your siblings and neighbors and whether you should honor what you feel. This full moon is a reminder that you need to express yourself, and if you have been honest about how you feel, now will be an excellent time to start saying your piece; this can be face to face, on Facebook, tweeting, or whatever communication tool you choose.

Release those issues you have with siblings or neighbors but be extra careful not to allow disagreements to escalate. The full moon will reveal the information needed to solve your long-standing problems or questions.

Use this time also to forgive, forgive yourself for negative words you've spoken, and forgive your neighbors and siblings for anything they've done or said to upset you.


On the night of the full moon:

" As I express myself with love, life brings me all I need."

Organs influenced by Leo

Organs: Heart, aorta, blood circulation, blood pressure, heart rate.

These organs are now more sensitive, so provide them with extra care.

Surgical operations:

NO! - Surgical operations are strongly not recommended during the Full Moon!

    4. Gaze into the candle flame as you breathe in fully and deeply and exhale any tension. The candle flame reflects your Divine heart center.

    5. Continue inhaling the scent of your oil and releasing any tension for 1-5 minutes.
