March’s Super Full moon in LEO occurs Monday Mar 9 at 5:47 pm UTC / GMT 1:47 pm EDT / 10:47 am PDT / Mar 10 4:47am AEDT
For those of you who know, Leo is a fire sign. There’s also something significant about this full moon because it’s in a place in the sky called Purva Phalguni (it’s a place of pleasure).
This is actually the constellation that Shiva and Parvati were married under in the Indian stories.
The full moon is in a Purva lunar mansion. All of the Purva lunar mansions have to do with Kama or desire. What’s so beautiful about the theme of this full moon is that it is related to the element of fire (Let me just show you; he full moon is a mild Green Day).
At the time of the full moon in Leo here, we have:
– a Venus in a fire sign in Aries.
– We have Jupiter in Sagittarius fire sign
– We have the fiery planet Mars in a fire sign Sagittarius.
– And Ketu is said to “act like Mars” and be fiery in the fire constellation
So we have no fewer than five elements (three planets, one half planet which is Ketu and the moon) are all in fire signs. And the theme of Purva Phalguni has to do with pleasure.
And so KAMA has to do with pleasure and enjoyment.
The Sanskrit word is often misunderstood – kama means enjoyment. It can inspire you to reach you’re your Higher Self, to be able to enjoy all aspects of life with no grasping but to be neutral bliss (like many people experience in kirtan or deep meditation (not sex). Enjoyment that breeds more desire is in the power of the one who is experiencing it. To gobble up more chocolate or dessert because you want more is the ‘lower’ vibration of kama which breeds more desire that will be unfulfilled.
Leo full moon lights up nourishing your heart
When we’re talking about fire – what’s true of fire? It must be fed since it’s consuming things. Here’s where we get a double flip. I often share a “double flip” lesson of how to bring the theme back to you and how this full moon can be a healing experience. With this many energies in the element of fire, there will be this fiery energy and energization for all of us to get stuff done. The fire will be lit under us to move, move, move.
