Hello first full moon of 2021! Here we are in the sign of Leo. Leo is a fixed fire sign that is known for being outgoing, attention-seeking, assertive, dramatic, glamorous, and courageous. With this full moon in Leo, we're being asked first and foremost to show up for ourselves. The fiery and heart-centered Leo asks us to not only focus on matters of the heart, but it's also pushing us to be the center of attention by expressing these thoughts and emotions. Leos are known for their love of the spotlight and with this full moon, we are being asked to step onto the stage and into the limelight. Here are some of the things to focus on as you work through this first full moon of 2021.
The Leo energy of this moon is asking us to be loud and proud while the sun's Aquarius energy asks us to be authentically unique. Individualism is a key theme for Aquarius and pairing this with the outgoing nature of Leo, it's the perfect opportunity to express yourself in new and creative ways. This full moon, spend time exploring your creativity. Create a piece of art, a poem, a song, or any other creative outlet you feel called to. When we dedicate time to creation, our minds expand; new thoughts and connections form, and revelations or epiphanies can occur that change how we perceive ourselves, the world, and our desires. Create without judgment and allow the mind to wander and grow.
LEAD WITH THE HEART
Pay close attention to what your heart wants during this full moon. Be honest with yourself and what you truly desire. This could be a romantic calling, a lifestyle change, a career change, etc. Maybe it's something much more manageable like taking a bath or calling a loved one. Defining your wants is the first step to making them a reality. This is essential in order to live a more authentic life, one that is true to you. Lead with the heart, be authentic, and you're bound to succeed.
Being authentically ourselves is difficult, especially when the world is our audience. Expressing ourselves creatively and from the heart is an act of vulnerability. It makes us feel exposed because we are allowing the world a glimpse of how we perceive ourselves and what we desire. We all have our own comfort zone boundaries and with this full moon, we are being called to gather the strength and courage to step outside of these boundaries. Be brave and unapologetically yourself to allow the world to see sides of you that you may typically keep hidden.
