Comet, Eclipse and Thou: Snow Moon/Leo Full Moon

Today we will address the Trifecta of phenomena Friday, February 10 will bring us, namely the Comet, Penumbra Lunar Eclipse and Full Moon in February, know as a Snow Moon.

1) Comets- with regards to comets, astrologically, the jury is still out. While there is some speculation about what effects they might have, it would be in our best interest to leave such speculation out of this forecast and dwell upon known planets (i.e. the Moon) and what will occur to it at this time. Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdušáková   will be visible at its closest approach to Earth on the morning of February 11 as it passes by at a distance of 7.4 million miles (11.9 million kilometers) or 30 times further away than the moon. You maybe able to see it with binoculars and telescopes

2) Eclipse: The Penumbral Eclipse (Partial Eclipse) will be partly visible from most places on Earth except for Australia and Japan. The moment of greatest eclipse is at 4:43 p.m. PT and then dissipate some two hours later
To reiterate my previous writings on the matter, Eclipses, in astrology, provides greater insight into that part of ones  consciousness using the lens of the sign that’s the moon or sun is in. For example, this lunar eclipse, occurring while Moon is in Leo, may make you very aware of some ego needs you haven’t addressed. Whether for affirmation, approval or acknowledgement, the eclipse will draw such concerns foremost into your awareness.  

3) Transit: Full Moons are good times for completion of projects and endeavors. This being a Leo Full Moon, you should devote yourself to any needs or emotion issues that let you express yourself. For the next three days, define the roles that you must play to get your needs met.  Do you need to take charge? Do you need support? Do you feel your life reflects who you are and your best attributes?

The Moon also governs psychic energy and intuition, so you may want to consult an oracle or a source of divination that puts you in touch with yourself, personal requirements and ways to fulfill them. If there are any doubts or question of what really matters to you, the eclipse will ensue that you embrace your true intentions and not some facile, vain expectation.

Leo, the empowerment this moon provides comes at a cost; honesty. What are your needs and what must you do to fill those needs? This moment doesn’t require full exertion but it does require commitment to your truth and work to fulfill that truth.

Aquarius, the Full moon may provide a new role for you to play. Rather than seek consensus, you may need to focus upon your own requirements, deciding upon what needs you’ve neglect for the sake of others and what you must do to bolsters your own works.

Taurus and Scorpio, the Moon may urge you to address some concern you been conveniently overlooking. The matter seem small, but like all things effected by a lunar transit, you’ll find there is much more to it and the stakes in involve are higher than may have acknowledge previously.  Much to be gain but it requires some dedication and work repair the matter.

As we bask in the glow of the Snow Moon and its subsequent eclipse, take the time to better understand who you are and what you need. Inner strength comes when we nurture and feed our inner resources.
