The musings of a Hedge Witch
It is the Aquarius full moon in the season of Leo.
This is an interesting mix for sure. Especially for my partner who is an Aquarius with a Leo moon. Things will feel topsy turvy for him in relation to matters of the heart. Leo rules the heart anyway (Leo Lionheart!) and the moon governs our emotions. Needless to say my partner at this time will struggle with flipping from emotion to thought, emotion to thought. For Leo tends to be extroverted feeling and Aquarius, whilst expressive and a bit of an eccentric, has introverted thought processess and they tend to overthink like a computer with a million tabs open.
But he has his moon in Leo, so deep down he’s a cuddly lion (I’m super lucky about this, I’m his Queen and I get the best hugs). As his best friend says “Some people wear their heart on their sleeve, Craig wears his all over his body.”- ACCURATE.

Axis points are important to understand as they represent opposing energies that also compliment each other. Leo and Aquarius are very different, yet they contain seeds of the other. Much like a yin and yang symbol.
Leo energy is connected to the Sun, so it’s warm, Aquarius is connected to Saturn & Uranus so it’s more cold and distant. Leo is all about self and being the leader, whereas Aquarius is all about the collective, the world and humanity.
The Leo/Aquarius axis is all about the Individual and the Collective, the Self and the Whole, The Personal Ego and Humanity, the Inner work and the Outer work.
This Full Moon, we must ask ourselves – how can we balance the needs and desires of the collective, of humanity and balance it with our own individual wants and desires? How can we do both our inner personal work, and outer collective work at the same time? Continue reading
