The Full Moon on February 3 is at 14º Leo and falls in Leo Decan 2
Healthy Egos & Lion Taming. Decan Ruler: Jupiter. Deity: Isis. Aspect: Trine Uranus.
“The energy is primal, spontaneous and uncensored. This does not mean this Moon isn’t spiritual, it’s just that it doesn’t like bowing down to a Guru, or following established paths to enlightenment. This pioneering Moon will always prefer the road less travelled.”
The Full Moon is on the big bushy-tailed mother bear Ursa Major which of course is one of the constellations easily seen in the sky as the big dipper. Robson sees Dubhe as “destructive” yet 1st century Astrologer Manilus shows how this quality can be used positively. Rather than being destructive, it tames those that could be destructive; “he will dispel the fury of the tiger, training it to become a peaceful animal, whilst all the other beasts which molest the earth with their savageness he will join in friendship to himself ”. Looks like someone who can tame problem children and civilise those who are usually wild and unruly. Here we find Leo’s guiding, leadership qualities, since the bear stars are so close to the celestial pole which was always a sign-post for sailors.
The last Full Moon was square Uranus, this one however brings us a beneficial healing Moon trine Uranus. Just what the cosmic doctor Chiron ordered! Even though this is supposedly harmonious trine energy, we do still get some challenge with this aspect. This aspect brings a strong courage of ones convictions, but it will often provoke criticism, fear and even envy from more conservative types. Often these are the very people who would love to lead a more bohemian or permissive lifestyle but are far too constrained by their status to do so. Uranian types touched by this Moon may attract very uptight individuals into their life at this time. This gives them the opportunity to act as a catalyst for these folks enlightenment. Their uptight friends will thank them later on, though you might get some backlash first off.
