Your 2022 Leo full moon horoscope

Published in The Scribe

     The semester is already shaping up to be a hectic one, and the astrological transits aren’t helping matters. On Feb. 16 at 9:56 a.m. MT, we have our second full moon of 2022, this one taking place in dramatic, romantic and flamboyant fire sign Leo. 

     Full moons mark a point of completion in the lunar cycle, so take a close look at your life on Wednesday and figure out what feels nearly complete. Is it a creative project? A personal goal? An internship application? Growing out your bangs? Or maybe it’s a romance? 

     Yes, Valentine’s Day is over and done with, but love is still in the air. Thanks to the planets.

     Love planet Venus and sex planet Mars are also conjunct (in the same sign/degree) in Capricorn this full moon. This is a rare alignment that increases our longing for intimacy, passion and hot-and-heavy romance. It also boosts our yearning for creative activities. 

     By now you probably know that full moons exaggerate our feelings and make us feel a little loony. Well, one way to constructively handle these feelings is art. Or writing. Or sculpture. Or acting. Or–you get the idea. But wait. There’s more. 

     The north node in Taurus–a.k.a. the planetary point of destiny–is square, or tensely aspecting, the Leo full moon. So while you may feel all hedonistic and hungry for lovin’, you might also feel hella stuck–in your career path, your education, your relationships and even your lifestyle. There could even be a sense that time is running out, or that sooner or later, you’ll have to make the changes necessary to–as Fleetwood Mac once said–go your own way. 

    Of course all of this depends entirely on your Sun and Rising sign. So, without further ado:

Your 2022 Leo Full Moon Horoscope

Aries ♈

     Amusements and ambitions are the focus of your attention. Have you achieved all that you long to achieve? Probably not, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy life and take pride in what you have achieved. Romance plays a major part in your celebrations, but you might just be romanticizing your own existence (#selflove). Ooh, but Venus and Mars work wonders for your reputation, generating a handful of work-oriented compliments from professors, parents or bosses… 

Taurus ♉

     The full moon shines a spotlight on your past and/or your Mom (or whichever parent nurtured you the most). Intense feelings of loyalty and longing converge, drumming up fond memories, which remind you of three things: who you were, who you are and who you want to be. It’s in this sweet spot of nostalgia and forethought that real change can happen. Venus and Mars align and nudge you to go on an adventure… 

Gemini ♊

     Grab your pen and paper–you’re gonna need to jot all this down. A writing project–poem, book, script–could be finalized, but is it as great as it could be? Past doubts about romance and the like resurface, driving you to question more than just the quality of your creative work. Venus and Mars join together, making you wonder if you should team up with someone in the investment arena. That, or you jump your partner’s bones… 

Cancer ♋

     Compliments come pouring in, momentarily muting your insecurities. The Leo full moon attracts admirers who have nothing but praise for your talents and efforts. Their honeyed words do wonders for your personal stock and self-satisfaction. A long-term wish (like, becoming an influencer on IG) could also be achieved and manifest that attention you so seldom receive. Venus conjunct Mars makes you both attractive and horny AF. You may be swatting suitors away left and right…  

Leo ♌

     Let this full moon shine a light on you, your wants and wild aims. Living your best life means you’ve achieved these aims and are recognized as a true creative powerhouse (with amazing hair). To do this, you have to a) want to succeed and b) work your tail off to do so. Venus and Mars act like a helping hand, giving you the creative and energetic boost needed to address the nitty gritty details…   

Virgo ♍

     Validation is overrated—or is it? You’re at once reclusive and hankering for attention, which is why you should entertain those skeletons in your closet. Getting in touch with the hidden parts of y-o-u–via journaling, scrying or hypnotism–will satisfy your need for external approval (for now, anyways). Your beliefs, principles, and big-picture goals may actually reap the rewards more than your ego. A strange silver lining: Venus and Mars make you feel extra creative and flirtatious… 

Libra ♎

     Living out your dreams is as challenging as making a decision (for you, anyways). Good thing the full moon makes it crystal clear how you can best live your dreams and make a decision about an ongoing creative/altruistic project. Joint ventures with your partner, parent and/or bank manager could also influence you and your dream life. The Venus-Mars conjunction sees you snuggling up on the couch with your beau or redecorating your room… 

Scorpio ♏

     Squaring off are your career and relationship wants. If you’re stuck in one of these areas, you’re feeling it in the other. This rut could be entirely external, too. There may be a kerfuffle between your parents and your partner that leaves you wondering whether or not either party is after your best interest. (Hard to say.) Nevertheless, the Venus-Mars conjunction is here to help you communicate your romantic feelings, desires and long-term career ambitions… 

Sagittarius ♐

     So, it could be that a long-range aspiration–travel plans, a novel, etc.–is nearing the finish line. The completion of this big-picture project (whatever it is) might see you questioning your self-belief and creativity. You should instead examine the tiny details of your goals (rather than glossing over them) and figure out what really has ya buggin. The Venus-Mars conjunction provides some much-needed confidence in your abilities, saving the day… 

Capricorn ♑

     Challenges remind us that we’re not yet up to snuff. So, if you encounter a heated challenge–or, if you seek out that challenge by arguing with your bestie / beau / momma, know that it’s just the universe’s way of building your emotional strength. A creative project and/or romance could be your saving grace. The Venus-Mars conjunction revs up your enthusiasm and Law of Attraction abilities. With a playful and passionate approach, you can manifest anything… 

Aquarius ♒

     Are you arguing more with others and harmonizing less? Relationships (and their issues) of all sorts come into the foreground to remind you to think just a little bit more about your SOs (boss, besties, boo, etc.) and less about your opinions. Family issues lurk in the background, making you feel lots of uncomfortable feels. Venus and Mars add more weight to these already heavy emotions by reminding you how lonely and misunderstood you are…  

Pisces ♓

     Please do yourself a favor and kick those naughty vices for good. Maybe this means you’re binging “Bridgerton” less and doing your homework more. Or maybe it means you finally accept yourself just as you are–warts and all. Whatever the case, you’re gonna be spreading the news to just about everyone who’ll listen. Venus and Mars assist this attention-seeking agenda. Don’t be surprised if you acquire and attract some new Snapchat and/or TikTok followers…
