Full Snow Moon Astounds and Explodes Upwards with the Enigma of Love


In my blog entry yesterday, I mentioned how this magnificent Full Snow Moon will host a bold, fearless aspect involving the Sun in unpredictable fixed air sign Aquarius in a trine to Mars in cardinal air and balancing Libra. Add a dramatic Leo Moon sextile the warrior Mars in charming, stylish Libra and we have incredible performances at the Sochi Winter Olympics. Of course thee is a lot more that this Valentine's Full  Many of those athletic efforts were literally airborne flying above the crowd.

In fact today, in the Olympic debut of slopestyle skiing, Joss Christensen soared to gold medal , posting a score of 95.80 on Thursday to beat teammates Gus Kenworthy and Nick Goepper. 

There will be lots happening on the 14th. even before the Sun rises in the east. When the Full moon begins @ 3:53 PM, the Leo Moon will at @ 27 degrees with this hopeful and mystical Sabian Symbol: "Daybreak - the luminescence of dawn in the Eastern Sky." Just as the last new moon in Aquarius set the stage for entering new worlds so to speak and  leaving the past behind, this Full Moon will offer new opportunities, new more just perspectives (like removing marijuana from  schedule one status)  and realizations along with scenes of awe and amazement. Updating from the 14th. with this uproarious Leo Moon @ 27 degrees bringing a new dawn so to speak when antiquated beliefs and laws would change. Look toward Italy, where   the 'absurd' drug law equating marijuana and hard drugs is overturned
Plus unlike the USA,the influence of the Astraea, the asteroid of Justice  means that around 10,000 people will be released from the Italy's overburdened jails. Just a quick aside, since Astraea is so close to both the Sun and Mercury in Aquarius during this Full Moon, "According to legend, Astraea will one day come back to Earth, bringing with her the return of the utopian Golden Age of which she was the ambassador". 
One thing is for sure with this bright Full Moon in fiery Leo, events will "go big" like the powerful volcanic  eruption of Mount Kelud in Indonesia which has over 100,000 people evacuated and seven airports closed.
Notice in the photo below that lightening (a symbol of Aquarius) is striking while the volcano emits fire.

Leo represents the love vibration which we celebrate on  the Feast of Saint Valentine with expressions of romantic love. It is said that Valentine's day was created as an attempt to supersede the pagan holiday of Lupercalia (mid-February in Rome). Lupercalia  was observed on February 13 through 15 to avert evil spirits and purify the city, releasing health and fertility.  One thing for sure is we really need love to burn brighter than ever  during this chaotic, apocalyptic frenzy and for many this enigma will foster enlightenment and release.

Below is a chart set for the Full Moon in San Francisco @ 3:53 PM
Leo is rising @ 5 degrees with this rocky Sabian Symbol: "Rock formations towering over a deep canyon." Being on the edge of a deep chasm and deciding whether to risk it all and jump.  This powerful symbol is not just about taking a leap of faith but relates literally to structural cracks and hazards. With sinkholes making news and the ruler of this chart the Sun still square Saturn in Scorpio
we could see a sudden quake or major explosion or multiple fatalities from a mega  accident in the San Francisco Bay Area. Starting the day, the Leo Moon first squared Saturn (exact @ 9:41 AM PST), an aspect known for delays/disruptions and even accidents and with the moon a TSQ to the Sun/Mercury in erratic Aquarius, like this 100 care pileup on the PA Turnpike Over in the San Francisco Bay Area it wasn't quite as bad on the roadways as as car tires flattened en masse on Highway 24 Considering that Saturn is  intercepted in the 4th house where Mars sits near the IC and opposes Aries @ 22 degrees on the Mid-Heaven - these explosive energies are sure to have an effect.  Ruler of this chart, the Sun posited in Scorpio's natural house, the 8th. involving death, and near asteroid Goddess Astrea and also that reckless, shocking Mercury retrograde..

The Sun and Astrea @ 27 degrees Aquarius with this  fragile Sabian Symbol:
"An ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh violets." This Symbol speaks of the purity of motives even when things seem cracked and resistant, a fresh approach to problems is needed along the tranquility of contentment. This Sabian also reflects a need to return to ancient, proven sources of doing things including more natural flower and herbal remedies.

Don't forget that the Leo moon also opposes Mercury after the moon separates from the opposition. In fact since Mercury, the weather planet has slipped back into the winter sign Aquarius on the 12th. we are on track for another exact square to Saturn on February 18th). We have been seeing how catastrophic storm, "Pax" hasn't disappointed forecasters by crippling the South and dropping massive snow on the Northeast leaving thousands without power along with 4,000 flight cancellations. (Storm PAX, the latin word for peace connects with Mars in Libra which stations retrograde on March 1st) Expect a lot more than just extreme weather, since Mercury, the planet of communications/networks in techno Aquarius in hard aspect to Saturn in the underworld sign of Scorpio and reprecussions are being felt from the recent hack of Silk Road 2.0. The sudden loss of approximately 4,400 bit coins has equaled about $2.6 million. Consider that Pluto is in orb of an opposition with Jupiter when either mega profits or gigantic losses.
