A Full Moon Eclipse represents an ending or culmination but this can be of something negative that has been hanging around throughout 2016. Numerologically, 2016 was a time of endings and letting go of the past; 2017 is about new beginnings and this Full Moon leads the way.
Eclipses always have a high energy around them which can be good or bad. However, this one is mainly good and as it involves the dramatic sign of Leo, you will probably notice its influence. Even though this represents endings, it is the ending of something that you need to let go and you may find something happening quietly and behind the scenes that is pushing you closer in the direction you are meant to take. Eclipse energies are rather like doorways into a different path or direction for you after you have felt stuck for some time.
While the Moon is in Leo, the Sun is in the opposite sign of Aquarius, and the Moon will be part of a Grand Trine of Fire bringing energy, enthusiasm and opportunity. It is a good time to make a decision and that may involve letting go of something that has been holding you back. The energies around you are powerful enough to help you transform and change the direction of your life in some way that, at the moment, may seem difficult or even impossible.
However, it’s good to avoid change that comes from emotionally reacting to a situation. It’s time instead to face yourself honestly and strive to make deliberate and conscious changes led by your higher self.
The Full Moon in Leo is about your emotional energy and this Lunar Eclipse will require you to be courageous enough to face the truth about yourself and the decisions you have made in an honest and confident way. It is the right time to look at anything in your life that makes you feel fearful or afraid and face your fears. This is also about relationships. While it’s important to face your own needs, you also need to take into account the needs of those who are important to you, otherwise you could experience communication breakdowns. Be strong and prepared to clear away emotional baggage from 2016 and start afresh now for 2017.
This is a particularly positive time for the Fire Signs – Aries, Leo and Sagittarius and it’s your time to shine. It will also be good for the Air Signs of Libra, Aquarius and Gemini. Communicate clearly and use your intelligence and you will see a clear way ahead for progress.
The Earth Signs of Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus may be pushed outside their comfort zones. It’s time to make changes now, however painful it may be.
For the Water Signs of Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio, you could feel overwhelmed emotionally, but steer through this uncertain period by following your strong intuition and plan positively for the future and you will find a new and more liberating path opening up for you.
