There is a full moon in Leo on Tuesday, February 3, which is the same day the tidal power of Aquarius reaches its peak. This day is commonly known as Candlemass, or Groundhog Day, and it’s a time to do things differently. Work to break away from monotony by the strength of the leonine full moon. Enliven this often-dreary time of year with a positive outlook as you anticipate the first stirrings of spring. As the Earth begins to thaw, so should your ideas and motivations. Now is also the traditional time to begin spring-cleaning, so you are able to enjoy the outdoors and sunshine when the time comes. Use this week for purification and prepare for future success.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)

The full moon on Tuesday signals the time for you to partner with someone or make a formal commitment to another person; since this moon blooms in solar Leo, moods will be high and cheerful. Accomplish goals with someone whom you admire for their loyalty and trustworthiness during this transit.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

This week, you will need to pay additional attention to your health and well-being. Focus on proper nutrition and get adequate sleep. Try wearing an amethyst to avoid fatigue and to keep you feeling your best, because energy could plummet during the full moon on Tuesday in your horoscope’s sector of vitality and general health.

Aries (March 21–April 19)

The full moon will illuminate your horoscope’s zone of fun, play, and laughter. This influence brings out the best in your artistic capabilities. Moods will soar to solar heights, so plan to do something entertaining. If you want to have children, this is a good day to try to conceive, because fertility rates are high during this lunar transit to your fifth house. If not, take proper precautions. At this time, the planets favor creativity — sometimes quite literally, in terms of procreation.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)

Tuesday is a night to entertain at home or to spend time with your housemates or immediate family. Talking with your father will be rewarding for you both, if possible. This lunar transit to your fourth house of domesticity will bring about clear, concise, and truthful words between those who share a living space.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

Tuesday’s full moon will enliven your chart’s area of communication and chatter. Talk with those who can help you or tell someone exactly what you need. At this time, you have the ability to express yourself remarkably.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

Money could be coming your way with Tuesday’s full moon in your second house of income, so be prepared to receive a financial benefit. Because this full moon unfurls in Leo, you may receive gold or gold jewelry, the precious metal most associated with the kingly lion of the zodiac.

Leo (July 23–August 22)

This week’s full moon illuminates your sign. You will feel pleasant and your mood will be cheerful. You above all other signs will be able to use the power of this full moon to break unwanted habits and end tedium if you’ve been feeling stuck lately.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

The full moon shines in your horoscope’s sector of restrictions and bondage on Tuesday, and you may need to take extra care of yourself this week in order to lessen any emotional blows delivered by the psychological pull of the moon’s peak. Because Mercury, your planetary ruler, is retrograde now, it may be difficult for you to make up your mind. Have patience and think clearly; you can also rely upon the advice of trusted partners and confidantes thanks to planetary blessings to your seventh house of pairings.

Libra (September 23–October 22)

This week brings an emphasis on social status. If you seek to gain acceptance from a group of people or an organization, your personality will be scintillating on this night, especially if you are scheduled to speak in front of a large assembly. Propose a toast on this night if you have the opportunity. If not, plan a party and invite everyone.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

The full moon on Tuesday will enliven your chart’s zone of work and ambition, and since this moon is in Leo, you will have the confidence to make your voice heard. You will command the respect of your peers and associates this week, as well as earning the attention of a boss or an employer with your creative genius and boldness of thought.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

Look to your dreams for answers on the night of the full moon on Tuesday. Unusual landscapes, strange places, and the supernatural will fascinate you now, and the more you ponder the unknown, the more inspired you will become. Search for answers in hidden places this week and you will uncover great knowledge.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)

An important project will come to a close this week. The full moon on Tuesday suggests that this ending could leave an emotional void because of all the effort you’ve been putting into your work. Look beyond this temporary sentiment because soon this venture will pay off and receive monetary attention. You will thrive off what’s completed.
