FULL MOON IN LEO DECAN 1
“According to Vehlow, the Chinese gave this group of stars (the asses and the manger; the Aselli and Praesaepe the name ‘Spirit Of The Ancestors’ and were of the opinion that if they were conjunct the moon THEY WOULD HAVE PECULIAR EXPERIENCES WITH THE REALMS OF THE DEAD.” 
The Moon doesn’t have a special power in this decan but it does well in acquiring material wealth. This may be through material inheritance or through an inherited character trait or talent. Whatever the case, family loyalty and values are very strong at this time and the importance of passing something of value down to one’s descendants.
One problem at this full moon may be pressure to identify strongly with the family clan. The ‘hive mind’ that exists among family members will be literally buzzing on overdrive! Especially since the new moon is aligned with the fixed star Praesaepe which the Chinese associate with the ‘spirit of the ancestors’.
Breaking out of any undesirable infantile behaviour patterns will be hard work at this time. A full moon in Leo decan 1 has an almost religious reverence towards the older generations and this ancestral connection brings our spirit guides closer to us. It’s comforting to feel someone has your back so this full moon should give us greater confidence. The negative side of this full moon could dredge out all the nasty family skeletons and ignite some bitter family feuds. On the positive side, this could be an amazing time to find and reconnect with long-lost and missed members of your family clan. I would think this full moon will very much aid mediums who work with the ancestors of their clients. This is also a period of great appreciation of ancient history and mythology.

Full Moon Healing Crystal ~ Carnelian
I chose the CARNELIAN crystal because it is great for healing conflict between family members. It is also nice calming stone in the face of all this very wired T-square energy.
The colour varies from a deep red/orange to a light salmon pink. The deeper the red the more fiery and passionate it will be and have more of a Mars energy. However for our purposes we should seek out a more feminine energy from a lighter, peachy-orange hued stone.
The name Carnelian comes from the Latin ‘flesh’, hence the word carnal! Carne in Italian is ‘meat’. It will help ground our body if we are dealing with the chaotic and confusing north-node square Neptune energies.
Lighter shades of scarlet, the lightly tinted red-oranges, are excellent talismans of dedication in young relationships. They combine the pink energy of romantic love with the light orange energy of contentment with family and friends.” ~ crystalvaults.com

“Carnelian is a stabilizing crystal, perfect for anchoring in the present. Its high energy helps restore lost vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity for new pursuits. It improves concentration and removes extraneous thoughts in daydreamers, and during meditation. This stone also protects against envy, rage, and resentment – yours, or from others, and encourages a love of life. It is useful for overcoming abuse of any kind, helping you to trust yourself and your perceptions.” 
“Carnelian is useful for overcoming abuse of any kind. It helps in trusting yourself and your perceptions. It overcomes negative conditioning and encourages steadfastness. Carnelian improves analytic abilities and clarifies. It sharpens concentration and dispels mental lethargy. Calms anger and banishes emotional negativity.” ~ charmsoflight.com
