The Full Moon in Leo is happening late on Saturday night, February 8th 2020. What can we gather from this time and what astrological energy are we able to tap into? Let’s start by exploring the astrological meaning of the Moon in Leo and the Sun in Aquarius. During the Full Moon, the Sun and Moon are in opposition – with the Sun’s light fully illuminating lunar themes of what is hidden and mysterious within us.
Astrology of the Moon in Leo & the Sun in Aquarius
Moon in Leo
Leo energy turns our direction towards the self and identity. As a sign ruled by the Sun, Leo needs to be seen and brightens the world we live in. This life force energy allows us to move, be, and create. It is a part of our divinity and a way in which we embrace our own fiery spirits.
When the Moon is in Leo life can feel confronting and our desires may bump up against the desires of someone else’s. The fixed modality of this sign pushes us to align with our true identities. It demands authenticity and what is hiding beneath our outer surfaces will emerge during this time. Whatever reason you are hiding — self-hate, shame, defensiveness — is not able to be blocked during the Full Moon in Leo. You have to be yourself.
So, let’s look at the role of the Aquarius Sun in this dynamic:

The Aquarius Sun brings another layer into the Leo Full Moon phase of the lunar cycle. Aquarius is not able to withstand inauthenticity and even sees this hiding as weak in some aspects. Channel this energy to fully embrace and step into your own personal, authentic power and self-expression. Leo and Aquarius believe in truth and doing what is right for you.
The Full Moon is the peak of something, when a moment, event, relationship, situation, or feeling reaches its climax. These are potent periods of the lunar cycle. Aquarius can shock us and Leo’s self-confident energy can intimate us. Instead of seeing these shadows, tap into them for a more illuminated meaning. Let the Leonine pride of this Moon help you stand fully in who you are. The effect may be surprising–even if you already know yourself really well.
