Look up to the sky! Tonight is going to be one of the most epic night we have since early 2017 because there's going to be a Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Leo, plus a rare sight of Green 45P Comet! All in one night! Whoaa. Well, the latter one is if you're lucky to live in the right hemisphere, of course.

The celestial event is going to start at 7.33 PM WITA, but honestly, I've been waiting for it since one and a half weeks ago. I don't know if you feel it in the air but for someone who is always in tune with the universe like me, the fiery Leo vibe can be quite overwhelming. I have gotten carried away with shopping for the new cosmetic items, always trying to look my best (with red lipstick!) even though I'm going to stay at home for the whole day, being easily irritated and snap at every chance (poor boyfriend), and splurging for expensive açaí smoothie bowl. Everything because I feel like I deserve to treat myself like a queen. On the positive note, I become more passionate about what I'm doing. I can see a bright vision where my business is going in the future, and what I should do to achieve it. All the temporary traits above are a mix of reaction based on today's event, mainly contributed by Leo's larger-than-life persona.

So here's what's happening tonight / this week:

The full moon tonight is going to be super intense. As it happens, the Uranus, Mars, and Venus are sticking together in Aries (Leo's fellow fire sign), aligning harmoniously in trine aspect with La Luna. Not to mention that the Full Moon in Leo sits on the opposite of Sun in Aquarius, the notable most chill and most detached zodiac out of the 12 signs. Sigh, no wonder we're super pumped up and angery at the same time. We are sweating with excitement and passion, but of course, our body is too small to contain all these fire inside us.

In addition, a trine aspect with the Saturn in Sagittarius allows creative ideas to sprout to advance your career. When combined with the Saturn, the Moon in Leo will form a Grand Trine aspect with the Uranus in Aries. It takes an inner strength, a sense of individualism, and leadership to create positive changes in your workplace. The confidence to pivot and initiate breakthrough idea is just as necessary as following up your past ideas. You'll know if things won't work out, and you'll know when to move on. You really have to look at this week as an opportunity that you shouldn't miss, especially, if you are in dire need of a new creative direction.

However, the moon is also connected in a sextile aspect with Jupiter retrograde in Libra. It is a reminder for us to hold on to our horses before impulsively launching a new project or deciding to pursue a higher study. There is indeed a powerful traction from the Full Moon in Leo to explore your options and break the glass ceiling. However, as Jupiter is currently not moving in direct, every decision you make that relates to Jupiter's area (belief, philosophy, growth, expansion) should be put on hold until you know what you're doing.

So this is what you should do:

You might be questioning yourself right now. "Who am I?" "What do I wanna do in life?" "Why do I feel useless?" or worse, "Why do I feel trapped?". Although the Full Moon in Leo influences your mood to feel important and be appreciated for being such an amazing lioness, the other planets in play are just as important as your feelings.

This week is the perfect time to make your assessment inward instead of outward. Turn those questions into answers, but keep in mind that you don't have to act upon those answers right now. Think about what kind of direction you're heading to, and what is the best way for you to get there. Ask yourself what part that requires change and improvement in various aspects of your life that relate to your feeling of self-worth (although it's probably every single aspect for me).

Most importantly, you are going to survive the heat, and you can turn the restlessness into a fruitful result if you have enough information and enough time to do the math.

So, do you have your telescope and popcorn ready for tonight yet?

AstroFox: Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Libra. What does it mean for you?

Happy full moon and lunar eclipse, Witchlings.

Tonight the moon is finally reaching its full potential in Indonesia area after the recent New Moon / Solar Eclipse earlier this month. Jakartans should be able to spot it at 8.01pm while Balinese can enjoy the view at around 9.01pm. Today’s Lunar Eclipse will last for about 4 hours and will be less noticeable compared to its predecessor due to its type of Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. To everyone expecting the similar significant dark shadow casted by Solar Eclipse, I’m sorry to announce that this Penumbral Lunar Eclipse will be less spectacular as the shadow has a subtler touch. It will be seen as a fainter moon and I guarantee it won’t look as grande on your iPhone camera. However, do not underestimate the positive energy it radiates. Full Moon in all pagan based religions is known to be the best time to make a wish, clearing out space for new items, or just to make an overall positive changes. Use this time to create positive affirmation in your life.

The transit in Libra brings the relationship theme upfront during this period. It radiates positive peaceful energy to overcome your past traumas and relationship failures. It’s the best time to forgive your frienemies and make a new meaning of your relationships. You can also use this time to ask yourself, “What can I do to be a good friend / family members / boyfriend / girlfriend?” or preserve your relationship with your good friends and loved ones by asking them out for dinner and good times. The Moon’s energy will help you strengthen your bond with them in the long run. Not only limited to relationship with friends, tonight’s energy also helps businesses to seal the deal with partners. Sweet talking and corporate gifts will help boost your chances as well, because Libra is ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty and expensive goods. So go ahead and be social today! 

Another aspects that are relatively as important as the Lunar Eclipse today are:


Moon in Libra with Opposite Sun and Mercury in Aries

Opposition is the aspect where two planets are located opposite of each other in an astrology chart. It is when the energy of both contradicting aspects becomes inharmonious to one another. While the Moon is transiting in Libra to kickstart some creative ideas through harmonious partnerships and fair consideration, Mercury and Sun are on the contrary, sitting in Aries — the sign of ‘self’, independency, and leadership. Both are cardinal signs, which creates a strong opposition in decision making especially for self-initiated project or life-changing decision.

Today, see where you stand before making a decision that will affect you and other people. The Mercury in Aries gives you the confidence boost to express yourself while the Sun helps you to ensure your needs met. But sometimes it is best to listen to both sides and think it thoroughly, as any decision you make may affect your relationship or partnership with others.


Moon in Libra with Sextile Mars in Sagittarius

The sextile aspect is a 60∘ angle between two planets indicating a compatible energy between  the two elements. It results in a harmonious flow which can be used to realise your goal. Tonight, the creative and aesthetic vibe of Libra combined with the ever-curious wanderlust Sagittarius is pushing us to seek further to quench our thirst for knowledge and travel. It’s a good time to push through new ideas, preferably with the company of others for brainstorming and creative ideation. You can also use this time to book random plane tickets and travel away with your bosoms.

In conclusion, the best way to utilise the Lunar Eclipse / Full Moon energy is by being a great company today by discussing ideas with others and considering their opinion before making any decision for yourself. 😇
