Despite being called the Snow Moon, things will really be heating up next week. Energetically speaking, of course.
Astromatrix tells us a few important things about the energetic trifecta of the Snow Moon in Leo, the Lunar Eclipse, and we’ll even hear about the Mystic Rectangle:
“Full Moon 10th of February in 22 degrees Leo is a lunar eclipse. The number 22 is about bring your dreams into reality. Leo represents your heart and love energy, how you connect with yourself and the Sun in Aquarius is about your connection with the broader society. This sun moon opposition is part of a mystic rectangle aspect pattern which links the eclipse with Jupiter opposite Uranus at 21º/23º Aries/Libra. These planets are in fire and air signs which is a lot about action and change.
There is also a grand fire trine with the moon, Uranus and Saturn at the apex. It represents a good balance between our emotions, discipline and our desire fro freedom. If we can get in tune with what makes you passionate. The trine brings to fruition personal freedom, revolution and electric genius. At this eclipse the more outlandish people behave, the more popular they become. Its time to get out there into the world and stop making excuses for yourself and hiding away. It is a very uplifting energy, it may show you where you have been drawn into negativity and you will feel this heaviness of negativity during this full moon. Leo also represents children and our own self expression so its good to get back to what we loved as children and learn to play again. Its time to bring magic into your life and stop being inhibited by fear and worrying what other people think.”
AstrologyKing explains the Mystic Rectangle for us:
The tense red cross enclosed by calm blue aspects is called a mystic rectangle aspect pattern. The high energy oppositions produce a lot of tension and activity. The harmonious aspects bring resolution to any conflict but can also mask an unsettled inner nature. This cool exterior may fool others into thinking you have it all together but don’t fool yourself. Recognize or admit the source of your red inner tension and use your blue talents to resolve them.
Moon sextile Jupiter and Sun trine Jupiter shower your personal issues with happiness and good fortune. Old relationships grow and new relationships blossom. The sociable nature of these aspects extends to group activities and helping out others. You will feel more generous and can expect favors and good fortune yourself. Financial gains can increase your net worth, plus your level of satisfaction and contentment. Personal and spiritual growth come through studies and travel, anything aimed at broadening your outlook on life.
Moon trine Uranus and Sun sextile Uranus revitalize tired old relationships and brings surprising new ones. Look forward to exciting changes, pleasant surprises and stimulating encounters. You should enjoy greater personal freedom to try something new and exciting. Socializing, group activities and chance meeting are favored. You are more likely to meet unorthodox types or people from different cultural or ethnic backgrounds than your own.
With Saturn placed above of the mystic rectangle as shown above in the chart, a three dimensional pyramid structure can be seen. Lets call it a pyramid aspect pattern, a rare beauty that requires five planets on similar degrees in five Signs. And lets say it turns the talents of the mystic rectangle into magic.
Each corner of the mystic rectangle gains wisdom and patience, stability and security from fatherly Saturn. The mystic rectangle is already considered a positive configuration and now Saturn really nails the point home. Respect Saturn and he makes your good works strong and lasting. Saturn uses the talents in the mystic rectangle to make practical magic.”
And finally, Niethonastrology sums up the overall experience we can expect from this stellar composition in the cosmos:
“There is so much juice running through this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo, we can risk burn out, especially those with personal planets and/or Ascendant at 22° in the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius) creating a fixed T-Square with the luminaries. This being an eclipse adds an extra jolt to an already potent lunation. Rather than rushing ahead attempting to put all our brilliant theories to work, it may be wiser to sit with them for a few days and see what percolates to the top. Take some time to play . . . after all playing is one of Leo’s best things!”
StarsAndStones shows us on this map where to see the best lunar eclipse:
