February Full Moon (Leo): What Lies Beneath: Bastet & Guru


Today is a full Moon in Leo.  Today vibrates the energy of  Neptune and the Water Dog. This energy oozes psychic intuition and beauty.  Today should be an exceptionally happy, and lucky day, especially for intuitive, psychic people. The moon's gentle rays touching Uranus enhances its luck bringing properties. Expect the unexpected and a surprise or two. This is emphasized by the Sun trining Saturn.  As this day is about growth, it is good for pursuing career goals and moving the bar up a notch or two. We are as lucky as we make our minds up to be!

The Magical, Mystical Leo Full Moon, shining its Love and Light. Go outside, hold your arms up in the shape of a V and say: I see the moon, the moon sees me, God bless the Moon, God bless me. The month ahead should be blessed and lucky indeed.



Pholus squares Mercury awakening intuitive perception and bringing to the fore that which lies beneath, hidden in the unconscious depths of the ocean of mind.


Today's energy is intensely mystical, visionary, spiritual and intuitive. It vibrates the energy of gurus, fortune-tellers, astrologers and those who strongly believe in fate. Music and poetry will stimulate the senses.

Because Mercury lies conjunct Mars and squares Pholus, acting rash or out of anger could have a disastrous outcome.

Sun is at 14 Aquarius (7 Pisces - tropical)


Because the full moon is in Leo, people may tend to be melodramatic.  Emotions run rampant, so guard against overreacting and making permanent decisions on temporary emotions. This moon vibrates the need for attention, to be loved and recognized and applauded. This moon tends to put people in a more loving, kind and helpful mood. Expect to be hugged today.



People born on 25 February: Guru, psychic, astrologer, imaginative, intense, spiritual, meditating.


Today is ruled by the number 7, which is also the number of Neptune. 7 is a mystical number and the number of the angels. It is the number of the stargazer, the guru, the psychic and the visionary.

There are 7 visible planets, 7 days in the week, 7 colors in the rainbow, 7 chakras (energy points in the body), 7 musical notes.

                                      lovers, education, hard work, but also fun, games and gambling.


Every Day has its own energy. We can use this energy to our advantage and / or to warn us against taking certain actions. For example, today is a good day to be creative, gamble, relax, listen to good music and have fun in the sun. A good day for spending time with children. Education is also highlighted. An excellent day for trading and money making. Very auspicious for religious activities.  

The moon squares the North Node and opposes Neptune. This warns against fire and illusion. Be careful before you react to something that may be an illusion arising from your own subconscious fears and patterns from the past. Work on your creativity, spirituality and see things objectively.



I aim to live magically, and invite you to join me on my journey as I explore and explain these energies so that we can move with the rhythm of nature for our ultimate benefit and gain. In my quest I track the daily movement and energy of the moon and the planets that influence her. I put pictures of her path and what it symbolises for all to follow and enjoy.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people wont feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. -Marianne Williamson.

Ascended Masters / Guardian Angels:
Bastet gives us the all-seeing 3rd eye. She gives us the ability to adapt to situations, to stretch our comfort zone and try out new things. To develop your third eye light a candle and gaze into a crystal ball or bowl of water. Let the images and impressions come to you. Burn catnip to boost your confidence. Bast is associated with music, dance, pleasure, protection, women and fertility. Magical symbolism - the 'all-seeing eye'.

Durga - this portal lets in fire and lightning to bear against your enemies. Makes sure your enemies get what they deserve.


Sekmet - protects women, children and animals.

Tarot Card: Strength - courage, inner strength, self-confidence, good health.

Lunar Zodiac: Earth is surrounded by the Zodiac band of 360 degrees.  The zodiac band is usually divided into 27 sections (mansions or constellations) of 13.2 degrees.  Whenever a planet moves through these mansions they radiate the energy of the particular mansion they are visiting.  These energy vibrations influence us on a subconscious level.  The Moon completes its wobbly trajectory around the earth in 27.32 days (a sidereal month).  The Moon is the closest planet (satellite) to earth and exerts the most energy on us (evident in the tides of the ocean).  Each individual will experience the daily energy in a different way as we are all unique.  For example if the energy involves travelling, one person might travel to another country while another may just travel a bit more than usual.  Pathological behaviour has been attributed to the moon, thus the term luna-tic.  Instead of reacting to this energy, it can be harnessed to benefit us in a positive way.  Take note of how the moon affects your energy and manifestations, and use it to your advantage.  Each of these 27 (2 + 7 = 9) mansion are divided into 4 quadrants. 27 x 4 gives 108 prayer beads. 108 Holy Names, 108 prayers, 108 repititions. 108 = 1 + 8 = 9 the powerful and magic number. Add any multiple of 9 and you will still get 9.  As we are busy moving into another galaxy, the number of mansion will now be 28 and the total number will now be 10.
