Today’s Full Moon at 28 degrees Leo forms a conjunction with the fixed star Regulus while squaring the Nodes in Taurus and Scorpio. This is an intense one, heralding more impactful world changes on the horizon this year. Regulus, aka the Star of Kings is one of four Royal Stars, associated with many of the strongest qualities of the sign of Leo such as fame, honor, and riches. Although mostly noted for its positive traits (which is not typical for fixed stars), Regulus does have a dark side. It can portend assassinations, martial law, false flag events, and massive revolts. This star is said to have an especially powerful influence over the European Union, which currently has a stranglehold over Europeans that makes them vulnerable to further war attacks. Part of the issue lies with certain countries depending on Russia for oil and gas. However, the threat of a military invasion of Ukraine launched by Russian president Vladimir Putin could have consequences that burst into many other parts of the world, including Europe and the United States. This Full Moon is triggering the Virgo Sun 0 degrees, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter placements in Leo in Ukraine’s birth chart, while opposing its own Full Moon in Aquarius revealing the real danger that this part of the world is facing, or highlighting the amount of attention they are receiving. https://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Nation:_Ukraine
The shortages in electricity, food supplies, microchips and other supplies that this conflict could cause would line up with what many have feared is on the horizon, connecting a long chain of events from the manufactured worldwide pandemic of 2020 to totalitarian lockdowns in 2021, to the possible real life ‘Hunger Games’ of 2022.
The protests that have been occurring worldwide are actually not about a virus. They are about people becoming more aware of their enslavement and less willing to abide by corrupt government mandates. Unfortunately, the greater the protest, the greater the likelihood of it being used against the people by agent provocateurs and controlled opposition. The government comes back with harder rules. The propaganda inflates times one hundred. This is also more evident to more people than it ever has been before, and the evidence collected is part of what good has come of all of the social uproar. Bearing this in mind, this Full Moon is a good time to arm up and prepare ourselves, and to be ready for just about anything. It’s also a time to pray to whoever we call God, to give thanks for what goodness we have, and to cultivate as much love and compassion for each other as possible, to help get us through this. Even, with Leo’s powerful focus, to help re-route the direction that things are taking.
Both Europe and the Ukraine have suffered so badly already before, and have been demonized. Any hardships that would ensue from more violence would probably be equally hard for Americans who are used to getting their way very quickly. The struggle of lack is already part of an experience we are engaged with in this first Pluto Return. The chaos is not over, but people of the 21st century are blessed with the tools and information that previous generations never had access to.
On the more personal levels…
Leo’s bright and stately energy is empowering our creative endeavors at this time. It is bridging together soul mates and adding a sparkle to existing love connections. Regulus is believed to have rulership over the upper of the kidneys, not far from the adrenal glands. Those with autoimmune disease or just under a lot of stress lately might sense the urgent need to slow down and rest, or to rather engage the heart muscle in more enjoyable ways through exercise. It might not be the easiest thing right now, but by focusing on anything that brings joy we take back so much of the power that has been given over to fear and anger.
