2023 Full-Moon in Aquarius | Your Brilliant Revolution
GlobalWoman’s odyssey in creative entrepreneurship, steered by the compass of simplicity, beauty, and boundless creativity, aligns with the seasons, lunar cycles, and celebrates every GlobalWoman’s creative spirit.
Sun, Earth and Moon: The Lunar Mystery
At the centre of each Full Moon is the Sun. As the Earth orbits around the Sun, the ever-changing lunar cycles unfold, visible from our perspective.
The Moon, captured in Earth’s orbit, reflects the Sun’s brilliance, resulting in the waxing and waning phases we witness.
The Full Moon is always in the opposite sign of the Sun.

Sun in Leo, Full-Moon in Aquarius | Embracing Individuality, Celebrating Community
Where Leo is passionate, Aquarius is detached.
Where Leo is focused on the ‘individual’, Aquarius is part of the collective community.
Where Leo is our sun essence, Aquarius is about the universal good.
Where Leo is fiery, Aquarius is air.

The Meaning of a Full-Moon
The Full Phase is the flowering of the cycle when the meaning of the life purpose is revealed and must be infused into the structure built during the waxing half of the process.
The Full Moon is the peak of the light and lunar cycle and total illumination of the vision is the promise of this phase.
The symbolic seed flowers.
• Moon rises at sunset, sets at dawn
• Moon is 180-135 degrees behind the Sun
• 15 days after the New Moon
During a Full Moon, the Moon is 100% illuminated as seen from Earth and is on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun.
The Moon will be visible throughout the night sky rising at sunset in the east and setting with the sunrise the next morning.
The time and degree at which a Full Moon occurs can be measured down to a fraction of a second.
The Dance of Leo Individuality Meets Aquarian Community
The Sun in Leo and the Full Moon in Aquarius brings a dance of two energies, in opposition.
The luminous focus shifts from the Leo individual to the Aquarian collective.
This dance encourages you to show up in the community, honouring your luminous radiance for the greater good.
Aquarius, the visionary water-bearer, is all about community, friendship, and forward-thinking ideas. This is a time to break free from societal norms and embrace progressive thinking that uplifts and unites.
“To make a revolution, people must not only struggle against existing institutions.
They must make a philosophical/ spiritual leap and become more ‘human’ human beings. In order to change/ transform the world, they must change/ transform themselves.”
Grace Lee Boggs – author, social activist, philosopher, and feminist.
