Celebrate Your Courage
The moon becomes Full in Leo on Wednesday February 16th at 11:56 am ET . The Full Moon is the climax of the moonthly cycle as 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 the next few days to look within, nourish yourself, celebrate your courage. Notice your hindrances and shed what no longer makes sense in your life.
Leo Moon Mood

Did you set intentions at 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.
Review your Aquarius new moon intentions. Celebrate your progress. Release what is no longer in alignment with your path.

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.
