Full Moon in Leo blessings to you all. With this high energy full moon we can find courage, confidence and fun to lighten our days as we enter the final weeks of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere and to give us strength to endure the continued restrictions we all have to live with.
Leo the lion, who hunts and lives in a pride is a very sociable cat. They are great at balancing work and play, always making time for fun with friends, where they thrive on their attention.
Connected to our heart, and upper back this fixed Fire sign is a determined character, generous to those they love, and oozes creativity.
Ruled by the Sun, when a Leo puts it's mind to a desired goal, it will work hard to make it happen.
A lot of the renaissance men and women were from this sign, talented in many creative ways they bring their whole self to what they do. They will share their whole heart fully with their work, relationships and their creative talents.
A Leo likes to be the best and they want to be loved. Coming 2nd place doesn't word for this Fire sign.
Feeling very confident and comfortable in front of an audience, the Leo will take it in their stride to organise events and routines. However, they're not all loud and attention seeking, they can be quiet and magnetic too.
On a good day the strong Leo will be the star of the party, letting their own light shine and infecting others with their child-hearted fun that we all need to be remembered about. You'll want to have them around to liven things up. They're not keen on blending in, their dress sense and confident manner will make sure they get noticed.
To be recognised for your work is something that's a boost to anyone's self-esteem. However, Leo can make being recognised a profession within itself. Leo's are great natural performers and because of this the arts, teaching, training or leading workshops and events are a wise career path for them to follow.
Leo's have the ability to inspire others to do their best, are extremely organised and can be relied upon, making a very loyal friendship. A great motivator of people, they are suited to managing others or would also do well as self-help mentors.
Let's take a big leap of courage and keep making the changes we need to, the ones we know need to be made and perhaps are holding us back from truly being happy. When we're happy and doing what we want, everyone around us benefits too.
Questions to ask:
- What's holding me back from achieving my goals ?
- Who am I ?
- What and who brings fun into my life ?

I've used my original painting for the main image and with a new border. I still feel at this time that the heart chakra green is the most suitable colour. Be brave, be strong and let your inner light shine bright to inspire others like the Leo knows best.
