Waxing Moon Half-lit in Leo

Greeting Waxing Moon Half-lit (exact @1213 PDT) in Leo (in Virgo @1359)


… love courage action expansion…

At this waxing Moon momentum is building towards the upcoming Supermoon (the ‘biggest’ of the year) and total lunar eclipse. Now half-lit, it’s time to pause, centre and renew balance. Time to reflect; review and clarify plans; and begin to initiate action.


Leo Moon brings inspiration, creativity, playfulness, courage and pride. She calls us to attune to our inner Fire and to express our unique selves with big-hearted Love. Taurus provides stability, strength, sensuality, serenity and strong foundations. Together they invite us to gather strength and sustenance from the Earth beneath our feet; ignite our passions; and strengthen our convictions (both fixed signs). We are called to both nurture home comfort (Taurus) and relish in the freedom of new adventures (Leo).


This energy was present a month ago when we also had a waxing Moon half-lit in Leo (210419). At that time, it was the first day of Taurus season, and Moon had only just entered Leo. Today is the last day of Taurus season and Moon is about to leave Leo. By now we are likely to be feeling strongly grounded; more appreciative of what is around us; and more self-empowered as well. It’s time to feel the fullness of the gifts received, and to consider how we will carry them forward.


However we decide to carry gifts forward, creativity, curiosity, playfulness, and self-expression will continue to be in the field (Leo shares these energetics with Gemini: Sun in Gem ‘morrow) as will support for practical action (Moon in Virgo @1359h). Pleasure-filled pursuits and loving ways are also supported (Venus-Sat trine) and we are likely to feel a rising wave of optimism, confidence and cheerfulness (Moon-Jupiter). Intuition, compassion, empathy, kindness and faith are all heightened; as is our faith/hope for the future and our capacity to see ‘the bright side’ (Jupiter now in Pisces and free of Saturn influence). It’s a time for mystical visions and big dreams (both Jup & Nep in Pisces).


It’s time to fuel our inner Fire. Time to open to new journeys and new learnings. Time to expand joy, love, creative self-expression, and the fullness of Being. Time to welcome a bounty of blessings. Time for our sacred seeds to come into bloom.

Seeds of sacred purpose are planted in your heart
Time to nurture them forth, these your ultimate art


Time to ground your truth and free your wild
Tap the wisdom of your inner child


Enjoy Fire’s warmth and Leo’s purrs
Be nourished by Earth and all that’s Hir’s


Play, love, joy and inspiration sing
Express your radiant everything


Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light

Wishing you curiosity, creativity, inspired imaginings,
and sweet blossoming this Moon
