New Moon in Leo, Full Moon in Aquarius

We are about to have a new Moon in Leo on Friday. This means that the full Moon will be in Aquarius two weeks later. Leo is a sign that focuses on the strength and sovereignty of the individual and Aquarius focuses more on what is universal and good for the group or humanity. As a result, you will feel the tension between these poles during this lunar cycle. Saturn is also and important part of the lunar cycle this month, not only because Aquarius is ruled is ruled by Saturn, but because Saturn is retrograde in Capricorn. Capricorn is also ruled by Saturn, but more importantly is the sign proceeding Aquarius. This means when the Moon is full this month and at its strongest it will be feeling the oppression and restriction Saturn more intensely than usual. This usually manifests itself as sadness, depression, and sometimes anger.

This dynamic is reinforced for the next eight days by the fact that Venus is in Cancer and is being aspected by a retrograde Saturn and a retrograde Jupiter. This in itself leads to frustrations and restrictions in the pursuit of pleasure and a sense of hopelessness, but other placements further reinforce this. Mars is in Venus’s sign of Taurus, and Rahu is in Mars’s sign of Aries, while Ketu is in Venus’s sign of Libra. This means that all of these planets are in signs directly or indirectly ruled by this rather oppressed Venus. This all leads to a feeling of hopelessly struggling and against the universe and the inability to get what you want.

The good news is this will shift when Venus enters Leo in eight days and should completely dissipate for most people in three weeks when the Moon enters it sign of exaltation Taurus. The Sun will be in its own sign of Leo and Mercury will be exalted in its own sign of Virgo. This indicates that a feeling of clarity mind and purpose should replace the sense of depression and struggle.
