February's Full Moon in Leo Is All About Me Season
Find out what’s in store for your zodiac sign.
Known as the lion of the zodiac, Leos exude pure confidence, instantly commanding any room they walk into. The full moon on February 16 happens to fall into the prideful sign, setting the stage for a season of putting yourself first. The cosmos are telling us it’s time to take our power back and surround ourselves with like-minded people, building a community you can grow with.
We’re still in Aquarius season, as the sun is in the watery sign. Although Leo is typically brash, bold and loud, Aquarius is the more steady zodiac and focused on empowering a collective rather than simply themselves. Since Leo is ruled by the sun, the watery and fiery signs come together to create a complex transit of energy, urging us to realize we don’t need to shout to prove ourselves and reminding us that we go further together.
To take advantage of the luminary event, Cristina Panescu, a tarot card reader and psychic recommends using crystals like selenite, moonstone, amethyst or clear quartz to ground and support your full moon ritual. “By choosing the right full moon rituals, you can better manage your emotions during this charged time,” she tells us. “The February full moon comes with huge challenges for most zodiac signs. This astrological phenomenon will bring out our hidden qualities and make us more ambitious. The full moon offers the possibility of many signs to clarify their problems in love — especially if we refer to water natives.”

February Full Moon Rituals
Meditation – Before starting your full moon ritual, it is recommended that you relax and enter a meditative state. Breathe deeply. Play quiet music. And most of all, focus on what the moon has to offer. At the end of the ritual, you let everything go. Make peace with what is and what is not and eliminate any drama.
Forgiveness – The work of forgiveness is the essence of any full moon ritual. Start the ritual by writing a list of resentments, grievances, and emotional wounds that come to mind as you meditate.
Fire – The next step in a full moon ritual is to destroy the list of forgiveness — ideally by burning it. The fire may seem dramatic, but it is an essential component of the ritual. A safer option is to burn the piece of paper in the sink or very carefully in the backyard, in a specially arranged place.
Gratitude – At this point in the full moon ritual, you have (temporarily) emptied yourself of resentment. The next step is to fill the gap with gratitude.
Full Moon Circle – For more collective experience, complete your monthly rituals with others in a gathering known as the lunar circle.
Moon Water – The full moon lasts about three days. However, astrologers say that it is possible to take some of its cleansing energy with you by making “moon water” infused with the light of the full moon.
Baths – According to astrologers, the Full Moon is an ideal time to take a relaxing bath, so enjoy an evening of purification and relaxation.
