Happy almost Full Moon in Leo! The moon will be officially full February 16, 2022 at 8:56am PST/11:56Am EST/4:56PM GMT. Because of this, I recommend clearing/charging your crystals, decks and other sacred items tonight (If you want to know more about how to do that, check out my blog post about it). The idea here is that if you have to pick the night before or the night after the Full Moon, the Moon is still in the waxing phase the night before, a more receptive time, vs the waning phase which is about pulling back. If you can't manage it before, Either will work, it really is the thought that counts.
When it comes to manifesting, the New and Full moons are the two major phases, the New moon for setting intentions and Full Moon is for Forgiveness, which is so important when it comes to manifesting, because we manifest in the present, not by living in the past. Forgiving doesn't mean you have to forget, it simply means you are willing to release your anger/disappointment/attachment towards an upsetting situation, and move forward into a brighter future. You can use the space you once held a grudge and fill it with something much better. Think in terms of vibrations, would you rather attract more toxic and upsetting situations, or attract more forgiveness, love and shifting blocks?
As for the energy, the Full Moon is often a push and pull between opposing forces (The sign where the moon is vs the sign where the sun is). This month, the New Moon was in Aquarius - a sign more focused on the collective than the individual, and The Full Moon is in Leo - which is Focused on creativity, Self-expression and personal needs. So this Full Moon energy is asking you to find a balance between what you need and what the collective needs. It is also a time to not shy away from the spotlight and what you truly desire, but rather know you are deserving of your dreams.
Some questions to ask for this Full Moon are:
- Have I been expressing myself creatively?
- Have I been too self-centered?
- Have I been putting other people before myself?
While you're at it, Write out a forgiveness list. You don't need to focus on all the details of everything you've ever felt wronged over, but you should write out what you feel really heated about, something you can't stop thinking about perhaps. When you're finished, either tear that paper up into tiny pieces and discard it, or if you have the means to safely do so, burn the list. Then make a list of what you are grateful for. Fill up that space you just opened up by forgiving yourself or others, and fill yourself up with gratitude. The other powerful manifesting tool!
Each Full Moon activates a different house depending on your rising sign.

I look forward to hearing from you!
