On February 16, 2022, at 11:56 AM EST, the full moon in Leo occurs, perfecting at 27 degrees of Leo and Aquarius.
Keep in mind that the full moons mark the lunar cycle’s releasing points. It occurs when the climax has been reached, the truths are made clear, and conclusions are made. From this point on, we use the knowledge that has been provided to us and are motivated to choose a new course of action.
When is the 2022 Leo full moon?
This coming Full Moon, which occurs in the early morning hours of February 17 (3:56am AEDT), has a very distinct energy. It will take place in Sun-ruled Leo, a fiery and joyful sign. This Full Moon should be more about fire, play, fun, antics, sunbathing, celebration, and sun worship if previous month’s Full Moon was all about Cancerian watering and nurturing.
How to make the most of your Leo Full Moon this Aquarius season.
First things first, if only for the lunacy, become more Leo. The Lion is a kingly, regal, large, entertaining, theatrical, noisy, and egotistical sign. This vitality contrasts sharply with the Aquarius season, which is cooler, dominated by Saturn, more constrained, and more concerned with group dynamics. Consequently, consider this passage as an opportunity to be more “me-oriented and dramatic. That evening, go see or do something exciting. Go somewhere noisy so that you can make yourself louder.
This Full Moon will also be solar-powered because Leo is ruled by the Sun. Visit the beach during the day or a spot with a lot of light at night. Keep in mind the phrases “heat,” “warmth,” “glow,” “radiance,” and “shine” while describing this Moon. The Sun, which gives us life, is, of course, the Tarot card that represents Leo. For optimal good fortune during this passage, make great use of solar energy.
Astro-physiology is a different viewpoint to take into account while looking at this lunation. Leo is in charge of the back. To energize Leo energy during this Full Moon, practice yoga. Or you could schedule a massage in a spa. Your spine will line up with the cosmic chiropractor if you unwind and stretch like a cat. Having a friend you can call in case you need assistance, or someone who will metaphorically have your back, is a good idea because the Full Moon is also a time to let go of pent-up emotional energy.
The heart is governed by Leo as well. Exercise that increases blood flow will delight the Sun-Cat and make your lunation more cheerful. However, we shouldn’t consider the heart solely in terms of its physicality. current Full Moon, express your affection for your pride. Although the big cat enjoys being the center of attention, it also enjoys having its loved ones close by. The holy heart will be strengthened more profoundly by reaching out to or spending time with those closest to you than by riding your Peloton bike.
Finally, consider working with some additional concurrent transits as you approach the Leo Full Moon. On the same day as this Leo lunation, Venus and Mars, the cosmic lovers, are cuddling in the sky. If your Valentine’s Day wasn’t filled with romance, satin negligees drooping to the floor, chocolates, roses, and/or Nora Ephron’s romantic flicks, it’s possible that the 17th is a more lucky day to start dating (when the fire and passion of Mars, Venus, and Leo intertwine). Our calendars are merely rough estimates of celestial Holidays. This revised Valentine’s Day might be a fantastic time for a long-awaited romantic conclusion because Full Moons denote culminations. On this day, suggest a second date or a first date.
Moon transits last only as long as a girl’s garland. Some astrologers don’t pay much heed to them as a result. However, everyone who has read “The Hobbit” or “Lord of the Rings” knows that moonlight can shine keyholes that open doors to wealth that could support us indefinitely even in these infinitesimally narrow cosmic moments. As a result, tune in to the Leo Full Moon and all Moons during all of their phases to find both internal and outward treasures.
How does Leo react to the full moon?
Leo is ruled by the blazing and fearless sun, whereas Cancer is ruled by the enigmatic silver moon. Leos enjoy being out and about, flaunting their gorgeous hair and booty, and soaking up the attention. Expect gatherings during this full moon since it awakens everyone’s primal nature. Forget about staying in; everyone wants to dance, make love, or at the very least make out with a stranger when the full moon is in Leo. However, if you go out partying like a primal queen, try to avoid getting into any conflicts because Leos are drama queens and full moons are often dramatic.
What does the Leo moon sign mean?
One more day, one more Full Moon. The Full Moon of February occurs on February 16 in the capital of Leo. The Moon in Leo encourages us to take action with confidence in ourselves as it is surrounded by glittering gold and crystal-clear desires.
Your goal is to be proud of both yourself and the people you are surrounded by at this time, with the Sun in Aquarius and the Full Moon in Leo. You know, a pride of lions is a group of them! You are reminded by the Moon in Leo that your people are worth fighting for, regardless of how you personally feel. Another important aspect of this transit is humility: If you know your worth, you won’t need to show it to anyone.
Spend your energies cultivating your relationships and community during this Full Moon. Which lions from your pride are you bringing to the watering hole with you?
When was the Leo full moon?
On February 16, 2022, there will be a Full Moon in Leo, which is always accompanied by a yearning to connect with our heart, the core of who we are. We are reminded to feel who we truly are because the full Moon is governed by Leo’s energies.
Each of us is special in our own way, and we all have gifts that should be valued and spread to others around us. It’s time to uncover your message and spread it to the world during the Leo full Moon. The regal lion of the zodiac is Leo. It embodies the qualities of strength, love, vulnerability, and leadership. Leo, the sign of kings and queens, serves as a reminder that everyone of us has the capacity to inspire others by being fully ourselves. But we must be prepared to be observed. In general, kings and queens are self-assured enough to occupy the spotlight in any room. They guide from this vantage point. They exchange energy. During this full Moon, be willing to occupy the space you deserve and to use that space to share your abilities with others.
Leo shows us that it sometimes require bravery to listen to our hearts. We must also be willing to feel and comprehend everything else the heart contains in order to feel and increase the heart’s pleasant vibrations. We are unable to open our hearts and feel only positive emotions. All of our emotions, including those of joy, love, compassion, and gratitude, are stored within our hearts. It also contains our anguish, sorrow, and dread. We must process it all, which may leave us feeling frightened, exposed, and even humiliated. Leo encourages us to stand up for ourselves bravely and powerfully. It serves as a reminder that we are resilient. It also teaches us that the first step toward love is accepting the whole person.
Is the moon full tonight in 2022?
The Strawberry Supermoon, Mead, Honey, or Rose Moon, the Flower, Hot, Hoe, or Planting Moon, Vat Purnima, Poson Poya, and the LRO Moon are all associated with the upcoming full moon.
The next full moon will appear opposite the Sun in longitude based on Earth on Tuesday, June 14, 2022, at 7:52 a.m. EDT. The International Date Line West time zone will experience this late on Monday night, many other time zones on Earth on Tuesday, and the Chatham Standard Time zone east of the International Date Line will experience this on Wednesday morning. Around this period, the Moon will seem full for about three days, from Sunday night until Wednesday morning.
One Moon, Many Names
Native American names for full moons first appeared in the Maine Farmer’s Almanac in the 1930s. The Algonquin tribes of what is now the northeastern United States referred to this moon as the Strawberry Moon, per this Almanac. The name refers to the area’s very brief strawberry picking season.
The Mead or Honey Moon is an ancient term for this full moon in Europe. Mead is a beverage made by fermenting honey with water, and occasionally with other ingredients such as grains, fruits, spices, or hops. Mead may also be referred to as honey wine in some nations (though in others Honey Wine is made differently). According to some sources, the “sweetest” Moon occurred at the end of June, when honey was ready for harvest. In Europe, the term “honeymoon” dates back to at least the 1500s. The custom of being married in June or the fact that the “Honey Moon” is the “sweetest” Moon of the year may have led to the association between this full moon and the term “honeymoon,” which is used to describe the first month of marriage. A 19th-century claim that the word came into English as a result of the practice of giving newlyweds mead for their first month of marriage does not seem to be supported by any evidence.
The Rose Moon is another name for this full moon in Europe. According to some sources, the roses that blossom at this time of year are where the name “Rose Moon” originates. Others claim that the name derives from the full Moon’s color. Nearly in the same plane as the Earth’s orbit around the Sun is the Moon’s orbit around the Earth (only about 5 degrees off). The Sun is at its zenith for the year on the summer solstice. A full moon close to the summer solstice will be low in the sky since it will be opposite the Sun. When the full moon is low, it shines through more atmosphere and is therefore more likely to have a reddish hue, especially for Europe’s higher latitudes (for the same reasons that sunrises and sunsets are red). The full moon will be the lowest of the year for the Washington, D.C. area on June 15, 2022, at 1:56 a.m. EDT, when it will be barely 23.3 degrees above the southern horizon.
The Flower Moon, Hot Moon, Hoe Moon, and Planting Moon are other seasonal names for this full moon that I have come across cited in various sources (often with contradicting information regarding whether they are of European or Native American origin).
This is Vat Purnima for Hindus. Married ladies will demonstrate their love for their spouses during the three days of this full moon by wrapping a sacred thread around a banyan tree. The festivities are based on the Savitri and Satyavan mythology.
This is known as Poson Poya to Buddhists. In Sri Lanka, the Poson holiday commemorates the arrival of Buddhism in 236 BCE.
This full moon also has a name from another tribe. Although currently dispersed, the mid-Atlantic region of the United States was home to the majority of this tribe. The primary language of this tribe is English, although it also contains several acronyms, obscure scientific and engineering terminology, and Hawaiian expressions (cheerfully contributed by the former Deputy Project Manager). This tribe, made up of individuals from different walks of life, many of whom have since joined other tribes, was dedicated to the study of the Moon. In celebration of the spacecraft they sent toward the Moon on June 18, 2009, this tribe refers to the full moon in June as the LRO Moon. As it continues to circle the Moon, NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is revealing details about our nearest planetary neighbor, some of which are useful for understanding Earth.
The Strawberry Supermoon
This supermoon will occur. Astrologer Richard Nolle first used the word “supermoon” in 1979 to describe a new or full moon that happens while the Moon is within 90% of perigee, which is its closest approach to Earth. Since humans can’t see the new Moon (except when it passes in front of the Sun), full supermoons, which are the biggest and brightest full moons of the year, have become more popular in recent years. Different publications use different cutoffs to determine whether full Moons qualify as supermoons because perigee varies with each orbit, but they all agree that in 2022 both the full moons in June and July do.
The Moon and Calendars
Full moons typically occur close to the middle of lunar months in many traditional lunar and lunisolar calendars. This full moon falls in the middle of the fifth Chinese lunar month, the Hebrew month of Sivan, and the Islamic month of Dhu al-Qadah (one of the four sacred months during which warfare is prohibited).
As always, it is recommended that you celebrate the full Moon by dressing appropriately.
Here is a list of astronomical events that will occur between now and the following full Moon, with times and angles depending on where NASA’s headquarters are in Washington, D.C.:
The daily lengths of sunshine reach their maximum on the solstice then start to shorten once more as spring concludes and summer begins. The earliest sunrises of the year happen before the summer solstice and the latest sunsets of the year happen after the solstice because the solar days (as measured, for example, from solar noon to solar noon on a sundial) are longer than 24 hours at the solstices.
With a dawn this year at 5:42:11 a.m. EDT and morning twilight beginning at 4:30 a.m., June 13 and 14, 2022, are tied for the year’s earliest sunrises. The beginning of morning twilight on Tuesday, June 14 (the day of the full moon) will occur at 4:30 a.m., followed by one of these early sunrises at 5:42 a.m., solar noon at 1:08:24 p.m., when the Sun will reach its highest altitude of 74.41 degrees, sunset at 8:35 p.m., and the end of evening twilight at 9:47 p.m.
The summer solstice will occur at 5:13 a.m. on Tuesday, June 21. On the day of the solstice, morning twilight will start at 4:31 in the morning, sunrise at 5:43 in the morning, solar noon at 1:09:49 in the afternoon when the Sun reaches its highest for the year at 74.56 degrees, sunset at 8:37 in the evening (making this the longest period from sunrise to sunset, 14 hours, 53 minutes, 42.1 seconds), and evening twilight at 9:49 in the evening. The latest sunsets of the year occurred on Monday and Tuesday, June 27 and 28, at 8:37:29 p.m. By Wednesday, July 13 (the day after the next full moon), solar noon will be at 1:13:53 p.m., when the Sun will reach its highest altitude of 72.87 degrees, sunset will be at 8:34 p.m., and evening twilight will cease at 9:44 p.m.
Evening Sky Highlights
When evening twilight ends at 9:47 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 (the day of the full moon), the rising full moon will be visible 3 degrees above the southeast horizon. Arcturus, located 70 degrees above the southern horizon, will be the bright star that will look closest to overhead. The fourth brightest star in our night sky, Arcturus, is roughly 37 light-years away from Earth and has a mass quite similar to our Sun, but it is older. Arcturus, which has grown to nearly 25 times its original size and shines around 170 times brighter than the Sun, has eaten up all of the hydrogen in its core and has transformed into a red giant. In around 5 billion years, when our Sun is nearly halfway through this lifecycle, it will turn into a red giant.
Each evening, the background of stars will appear to move westward as the moon cycle proceeds (although it is actually the Earth that is moving around the Sun toward the East). The bright stars Pollux on June 30, Regulus on July 2 and 3, Spica on July 7, and Antares on July 10 will be in close proximity to the waxing Moon in 2022.
On Wednesday, July 13, 2022, the full moon will be visible 5 degrees above the southeastern horizon as evening twilight ends (at 9:44 p.m. EDT). With Vega 60 degrees above the east-northeast horizon and Arcturus 59 degrees above the west-southwestern horizon, two bright stars will be tied for being the nearest to overhead. Vega is around 25 light-years away from Earth and is the fifth brightest star in our night sky. Our Sun’s mass is roughly double that of Vega, but it shines 40 times brighter.
Morning Sky Highlights
Four of the five visible planets will appear in a line above the east-southeastern horizon on the morning of Tuesday, June 14, 2022 (the day of the full moon), as morning twilight begins (at 4:30 a.m. EDT). Saturn will be to the upper right at 35 degrees above the south-southeastern horizon, Jupiter at 29 degrees above the east-southeastern horizon, Mars at 25 degrees above the east-southeastern horizon, and Venus to the lower left at 6 degrees above Mercury will rise over the east-southeastern horizon around six minutes after morning twilight starts, appearing almost as bright as Mars and Saturn. We will be able to view all six of the visible planets at once, with all bar the Earth (which we can always see) lined up from the lower left to the top right in order of their distance from the Sun. Mercury will join the group of planets to the lower left of Venus. It will be 8 degrees above the southwest horizon as the full moon rises.
With the bright star Deneb coming closest to above at 83 degrees above the north-northwest horizon, the “Summer Triangle” will be overhead. Deneb is around 20 times as big as our Sun, but because it has exhausted its hydrogen, it has grown into a blue-white supergiant with a diameter that is 200 times larger than that of the Sun. Deneb would span roughly the Earth’s orbit if it were located in the same region as our Sun. Deneb, the 19th brightest star in our night sky, is 2,600 light-years away from Earth.
Jupiter, Saturn, and Mars will appear to move each morning toward the west as the lunar cycle goes on, while Mars will appear to move more slowly. Each dawn, Venus will appear to move in the opposite direction, getting closer to the eastern horizon. Early mornings in late June should be a good time to search for the visible planets in the sky lined up in order of their distance from the Sun because for a few days around June 25, the planet Mercury will emerge just above the east-northeastern horizon at the time morning twilight begins. Saturn will be in close proximity to the waning Moon on June 18, Jupiter will be on June 21, Mars will be on June 22 and 23, Venus will be on June 26, and Mercury will be on June 27, 2022.
Four of the five visible planets will be visible in a line across the sky by the morning of Wednesday, July 13, 2022 (the day of the full moon after next), as morning twilight begins (at 4:43 a.m. EDT). Saturn will be to the upper right at 34 degrees above the south-southwestern horizon, Jupiter at 48 degrees above the southeastern horizon, Mars at 39 degrees above the east-southeastern horizon, and Venus to the lower left at 7 degrees above the Mercury will rise less than 30 minutes before sunrise, thus it won’t be seen in the dawn’s rays. It will be 4 degrees above the southwest horizon when the full moon is visible. At 64 degrees above the west-northwest horizon, Deneb will still be the bright star that will be visible as being nearest to overhead.
