Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Leo: The Portal of a New Time

Leo Mandala – Megan Manske

The coming Full Moon Eclipse at 22° in Leo on 10th-11th February will mark the opening of the Portal of a New Time, which will come completely into manifestation around the Spring equinox.

Eclipses act like celestial doorways, which pour cathartic energies into our lives bringing endings, transformations, changes of direction, with the purpose of preparing the path for a new beginning.

In the background of the last New Moon in Aquarius things started to be triggered, as the Water Bearer is the sign of movement, transformation and metanoia. Now, because of the interplay between the Sun in Aquarius and the Full Moon in Leo, an inevitable point of crisis will be reached, enhanced by the arrangement of the celestial bodies in the sky.

Leo – Johfra Boschart

Leo is the fifth sign in the Zodiac, and it is ruled by the Sun. In esoteric numerology the Sun is associated to number 1, the creative, the carrier of the soul energies from the spiritual to the physical plane. The Sun vehicles the energy of Ray 2 Love/Wisdom, which is the will to unite, to join together, as Love is a cohesive force. On the Mutable Cross of mass consciousness, when we talk about the Sun as the ruler this sign, we refer to the Crown of the Sun, which is the personality (our thinking, feeling and behaviour), controlled by our instinctual nature; on the Fixed Cross of the disciple, the ruler of Leo is the Heart of the Sun, the soul, ruled by intelligence; on the Cardinal Cross, the ruler of Leo becomes the Spiritual Sun, the Sun behind the Sun, and it refers to the One self, ruled by Love, answering the call coming from the Divinity.

As the 5th sign, Leo is energetically connected to number 10 (5th zodiac sign and 2nd Ray of the Sun), which is the number of Spirit born out of matter, the revelation of the potential hidden behind the material phenomena. In Kabbalistic terms, 10 is the last sphere of Malkuth, the Kingdom, ruled by the Higher Will of God emanating from Kether, the Crown, which is associated to number 1. For this reason there is a strong connection between the zodiac signs of Leo and Capricorn, the 10th sign of the Zodiac, representing the process of initiation, which makes the self-conscious person become the individual conscious of himself and his purpose in the Greater Plan. In colour language it would mean to move from the hue of yellow to pale yellow: from the personal self to the individual that may align to Thy Will, allowing the two way communication, which is the active co-operation between the personality and the soul.

Master Djwhal Khul – Pamela Matthews

Djwal Khul states that in Leo there is a peculiar quality, which can burn and destroy and so eradicate all that hinders its essentially Divine expression.

Leo is also the 8th sign on the reversed wheel from Pisces to Aries; it is considered the sign of the Christ (the soul) and of the indwelling Reality; it therefore, marks a new cycle, as when self-consciousness is born (at the moment of individualization), a new phase begins. In Leo the two planets through which the Sun focuses its energy or influences are Neptune and Uranus. The “heart of the Sun” employs Neptune as its agent, whilst the central, spiritual Sun pours its influences through Uranus.

During this Full Moon Eclipse in Leo the celestial bodies will create a beautiful envelope configuration in the sky, consisting of a Mystic Rectangle, outlined by the Moon, Uranus, Sun and Jupiter, overlaid by a Pyramid with Saturn at the top. At the same time there will be a gorgeous Yod aspect, the finger of God, between the Moon, Jupiter and Chiron.

As Jupiter vehicles Ray 2, the same ray of the Sun, it supports the energy of the soul and the fusion between the heart and the mind, creating the space and the conditions for the inner union between the personality and the soul, which Uranus is stimulating. We will understand that it is time for us to follow our heart, to be who we truly are, and reveal the truth.

Light of the Soul – Rassouli

Through Uranus Leo is related to three other signs of the Zodiac: Aries, Libra and Aquarius. Aries, from where Uranus is acting, is connected with the soul intention, the re-orientation of our thinking in the direction of the soul; Libra, where Jupiter is transiting, is related to the mental unity and the balance of the personality and the soul, creating the integration of the opposites, but also it refers to a time of assessment of the past; Leo, where the Full Moon is standing, represents the man going beyond the limitations that he has created for himself in order to become who he truly is as an individual; and Aquarius, where the Sun is located, is the urge to become light of the soul and to follow our own true destiny.

The envelope is an enclosing cover, a wrapper, and the opening is about something to be read, announced and revealed; it is about waking up situations, where we will have an opportunity to accept or learn the truth.

Saturn, who overlooks over the mystic rectangle from his position in Sagittarius at top of the Pyramid, is asking us to align our personality and soul by facing the past and preparing for the future. Saturn will show us the limits of the present life situation, what we need to release and what to bring into our life, offering us an opening to evolve towards the crisis of reorientation. It is about being “impressed from on high” and illumined by the light of the soul.

The mystic rectangle is like a doorway with the Yod at the centre of it. The Finger of God gives a purpose, a “place to go”, to all the energies triggered by these aspects. The Yod is pointing at Chiron at 22° in Pisces. Chiron will show us the truth by making us run into the brick wall of reality in order to reconcile the inner and the outer and reveal our true soul nature. Pisces is about bondage, reorientation and liberation; it is about letting go of the suffering and “resurrect” through the guidance of the soul.

The Full Moon will be conjunct the Fixed Star Pherkad in the Ursa Minor.  The original name of this constellation was Dubheh, referring to the Hebrew Dohveh, which means rest or security: “So shall thy rest or security be.” (Deuteronomy 33:25)

By the Kabalists Pherkad is associated with the Hebrew letter Tav, which refers to the 21st Tarot card Le Monde, which is esoterically called The Bringer of the Good News.

The eclipse will start the release of everything that needs to be gone or come to an end in our life. The presence of the letter Tav means that whatever it’s going to happen and wherever we are going to be, the good news is that we have to allow the plan to unfold as everything is Divinely guided. Tav means “sign”, “impression”. The impression is the secret of the simple faith in the omnipresence of God, the infinite present in the finite. The Tav represents the vibration through which the unexpressed and the unsaid are released; it is the final outcome. With Tav the personality has surrendered to the Divine movement and the soul can finally reveal its true nature.

Rumi – Unknown Artist

“Do you know what you are?

You are a manuscript oƒ a divine letter.

You are a mirror reflecting a noble face.

This universe is not outside of you.

Look inside yourself; everything that you want,

you are already that.”

Jalāl al-Dīn Rumi
