This Leo Full Moon blesses us with her fiery energy on Jan. 31st at 5:27am PST | 8:27am EST. A few minutes later at 5:31am PST | 8:31am EST the Lunar Eclipse is exact.
With this being a lunar eclipse, we are in a powerful transitional gateway of shift to release that which no longer uplifts you and illuminate your heartfelt and passionate self to roar as the wise leader of your own life (Leo). Now is the time to ignite your heart's desires and offer your gifts to serve in the world with a sense of devotion, inspiration and responsibility (Tarot of the High Priestess).
This is a pivotal window for us as a collective where our feelings, emotions, and intuition come to light to catalyze renewal and regeneration at the level of the heart and soul. It is a time of purification to breakthrough and resurrect your self-love, truth and power. And it is a time to liberate and celebrate the wild soul that you are!

Leo Full Moon Eclipse Ritual
This potent ritual is offered in love to your Bright Soul! The intention of this ritual is to empower you in releasing anything that may be preventing you from living in the fullest expression of your Wild Sacred Feminine Essence and rise in the wisdom, beauty, and truth that you are. Blessings to you!
Build a fire and bask in the radiant flames. Let the heat penetrate your body. Let the colours into your eyes, empty yourself of thoughts and allow for the flames to guide you deep within. If you can't build a fire, then light some candles and bask in the full moon's light if possible.
Write down all the things in your life that you were told you couldn't do, or weren't allowed to do and all the beliefs that arose from that. Take your time with this...
Then Reflect on how this makes you feel, speak your feelings, write them down and allow your body to express these feelings.
Now investigate how this has affected your life and may still be affecting you. Again, take your time.
Then offer to the fire all the parts the beliefs that are not true, that you may have been living with. Honour them for their time with you and now they are no longer needed. Sacred. Deep. Release.
Dance Dance Dance! If with a fire, let the heat of the fire soften your body and move in ways that make you feel free and empowered. Dance your truth. Dance your heart and soul.
Speak aloud what you are capable of, and the truth of who you are! Speak your wisdom and what your passions are. You can start each sentence with I Am.... and claim your truth. Run wild with this! When you feel complete (and maybe after many tears...) Repeat, "And so it is!" as many times as you like. This will anchor in and affirm your sacred truths.
Finally, write down these truths, so that you can refer back to it when you need reminded of your power.
Close with gratitude and long deep breathing. Or, continue in what ever way feels most resonant for you.
Remember: Put out your gem stones and jewels in a window or in water for cleansing, renewal and activation. Preferable in salted water (sensitive stones and jewels leave out the salt part).
Commune: Gather is an intentional way with loved ones and do the above ritual together if possible for extra potency and support. Now is a such a powerful time to be with the energy of the collective.
Full Moon rituals can be done the day before, of and after the actual full moon. This is the 3 day potency period. Blessings to you in this powerful and wild and powerful time.
