Full Moon in Leo January 28, 2021

It’s officially a Full Moon in Leo on January 28, 2021 at 2:12 pm ET.

Leo is ruled by the Sun. A Full Moon in Leo always stands across the sky from the Sun in Aquarius indicating hopefulness for the future.

The Sun is also conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius during this Full Moon in Leo. This can bring a lot of attention and drama to big tech, news media, social media. As more people expand their vision and hopes for the future, we are sure to see more people wake up to how the world is a stage. The Moon in Leo and Jupiter in Aquarius also indicates high expectations and big gambling risks.

We have Mercury going Retrograde in Aquarius on January 30, 2021 as well, indicating shifts in perspectives coming up as people reexamine how collective consciousness and society are influenced by information exchanges. Disagreements on what is true and what is not will likely dominate now. External peer pressure to think in line with the majority is indicated, but the interest in individual free-thought is the natural reaction. To think different and outside the box can reveal a lot more to reality.

Along with all the classic Mercury Retrograde issues, we coul see cybersecurity, electrical and energy related issues come up.

Mars in Taurus is also in challenging aspect to The Full Moon, Sun and Jupiter now. We could see difficulties with security, income and the economy raised during this time. We could see defensive stances against ideologies that are causing real-world challenges.

Venus in Capricorn is also in conjunct with Pluto in Capricorn on January 28, 2021 at 11:17 am ET for this Full Moon in Leo. Powerful transformations in business and finance are indicated, especially regarding money and the stock market. A dominant female power figure could be in the spotlight. Gender related concerns in the political landscape could be an underlying theme.


Generally, Leo is a creative, inspired, social sign that enjoys attention, entertainment, enthusiasm fun and gets inspired by all that is glitzy and glamorous. This is a great time to get more interested in the creativity and entertainments that you like most and recognize your own talents and tap into your self expression.

  • What do you admire in others that you would like to be a part of your personality? 
  • What talents would you like to emphasize in your life? 
  • Where do you see yourself making a great change that can define you as more true to yourself?

Leo can symbolize the archetype of a King and so can be highly egocentric, dogmatic, and controlling but also represents the type of personality that is direct and focused on accomplishing their goals.

Since Leo is highly egocentric and the human ego is such a fragile thing, Full Moons emphasize fiery emotions in Leo. Bold encounters are possible in your social sphere, especially when there are strongly opposing egos.

As Leo is a Fixed sign, people can be very stubborn with their positions, so if you are dealing with someone that is very strong willed, or has a flaming, dramatic attitude, if you don’t want things to get too heated, you may need to just give in and agree to disagree and move on – which may be difficult to do if you’re feeling stubborn and heated too. Be cautious of what you say and how you behave in person and on social media as it can escalate especially with so much happening in Aquarius now.

People can be very reactive with a Full Moon, and we may see showy, expressive, dramatic demonstrations by people leading up to this Full Moon. If people in your life are acting out and going over the top with the dramatic emotions, it could impact your relationship significantly now. In such cases it is recommended to step back for a breather, and make a decision of how to proceed rationally instead of just getting drawn into the escalating emotions of the drama.

Reputations can be especially emphasized during a Full Moon in Leo. An interpretation of an event, of someone in the spotlight, or what is said could lead to a switch in perceptions between people. Social connections and how they influence the future is up for consideration.

We could see a celebrity, an authority figure or someone in a top leadership position make an attention grabbing announcement or an over the top, dramatic gesture around this time that gets the spotlight.

Fun, games, entertainment and gambling are associated with Leo. With Jupiter and the Sun in Aquarius, perhaps we’ll see talk about a big lotto, jackpot or the stock market.

A Full Moon in Leo is a great time to muster the courage to show off your personality a bit more than usual. Leo loves the spotlight. If you’re an artist maybe you’d want to show some of your artwork to people. It’s a great time to recognize your talents and tap into feeling proud of yourself for your accomplishments in any case, whether it is a creative endeavor or in accomplishing career goals. Leaders in business are likely to have extra drive and ambition now to succeed in taking charge.

Leo rules the Strength card in the Tarot indicating our ability to overcome our lower instincts and take charge and be empowered using our higher willpower.

Success! You're on the list.
