The moon becomes Full in Leo today at 2:16 pm ET. It is also known as the Wolf Moon. The Full Moon is the climax of the moonthly cycle because it is at it's brightest and can shine light on the deepest parts of ourselves that we can't usually see or that we choose to suppress. Take this moment (Thursday - Saturday) to look within, nourish yourself, notice your hindrances, and shed what no longer fits or no longer makes sense in your life.
When Leo is in the mix there is a need to be creative, express oneself, and to receive appreciation from others. It is a fixed fire sign ruled by the Sun which symbolizes our basic identity and conscious purpose. The energy of a Leo moon is generous, expressive, stubborn, and open hearted.

Did you set intentions on the Leo new moon back in August?
If you did, go to your notes and review your intentions, goals, wishes.
Have any of them come to fruition? Yes? Great! You are focused on what you want.
No? do you still want to work on that? Is it aligned with what you want now? If not, let it go, throw it into the fire. If yes, be like Capricorn and see how you can create some structure and the intentions/goals/wishes can be reordered so you can manifest it in the near future.
Revisit your Capricorn New Moon Spread and review the intentions you made during the new moon.
Are your intentions taking root into your daily life?
What does the Full Moon in Leo card say to you now?
Does your initial impression still stand?
Has anything changed?
Any new insight in hindsight?
Close your eyes.
Take a deep breath in 1, 2, 3, 4
Hold it 1, 2, 3, 4,
Breathe out 1, 2, 3, 4,
Repeat as many times as you wish
Shuffle your deck (or use your intuition) and ask:
Where in my life can I be more courageous?
What aspect of my life is asking me to take a risk?
What can I invite or release in my life to gain more confidence?
How can I make more room for creativity?
How can I be more generous (with time, money, or kindness)?
Full Moon Ritual - Charge your Spiritual Tools
The light of the Full Moon amplifies everything with the energy of manifestation. This is why many coven's meet on the full moon to perform their magical rituals.
Take out your crystals, rosaries, tarot, and oracle decks (etc) and cleanse them with the scared smoke of sage, cedar, copal or whatever is native to where you live. The important thing is cleanse with the intention of clearing and neutralizing energies from the tools.
To charge your spiritual tools take them outside where they can get the energy of the moon (a window sill will also do).
For each spiritual tool state your intention and add something like "I invite the light and manifestation power of this Full Moon to bless and amplify this spiritual tool so it may serve its highest good. Blessed be."
In the morning offer a prayer of gratitude to the moon and your spiritual tools for its potent new energies.
