Full Moon Meaning
Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this Moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.
The Lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a Full Moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.
Full Moon Astrology
The Full Moon at 20° Leo 00′ makes two planetary aspects but they are only weak influences because of the wide orbs. The most important one is a trine to Mars because the fixed stars that join the Full Moon both have a Mars nature.
Full Moon Aspects
Full Moon trine Mars gives the courage and initiative to make the first move and take the lead. You will intuitively know what you want and how to get it. This is a good Full Moon for acting on your instincts. You can be direct and assertive without looking bossy or rude, and instead, be admired for your honesty and sincerity.
If you are a shy person this is the ideal time to get in touch with your sexuality and share your passionate desires. Increased charisma and sex appeal is a good omen for socializing and your love life. Full Moon February 2020 will also help you stand up for yourself and to defend your family.
Full Moon quincunx Neptune increases your emotional sensitivity but too many, or conflicting emotions, can lead to confusion and tension. With Mars amplifying your emotions, relationship tension could escalate to a critical point when you either have to escape or have a meltdown.
To reduce tension and avoided a crisis point, find the right balance in your life. A balance between a social drink and alcoholism, balance between health consciousness and hypochondria, and between service and sacrifice. The key to finding the right balance is trust and faith, in yourself, in others and in the universe/God.
Full Moon Stars
Fixed star Merak at 19° Leo 43 in the Great Bear has a Mars nature. It gives a love of command and domination while increasing the power to get on in life.
