The first Full Moon of 2021

Our first Full Moon in Leo is upon us and it is said that it could leave some bruised egos in its wake. (If you aren’t careful)

Last months Full Moon was all about peace and quiet, while this months fiery sign Leo demands that we step out of our respective shells and greet our adoring public. The regal sign of Leo will ensure that attitudes are warmer – but undeniably more dramatic. Egos will be hungrier although we feel an increased sense of generosity nonetheless.

This Full Moon wants you to claim and celebrate what’s yours. Every sign, not just Leo will realize what gifts they’ve quietly amassed over the last month. With a difficult 2020 behind us, it might be difficult to view anything as positive right now, but this Full Moon will highlight exactly what you’ve earned since the last Leo moon last February.

A win is still a win, no matter how small. Start practicing your victory dance. Look on the bright side and pinpoint what it is you have to be grateful for. Hold on to that triumph and be proud of what you have accomplished. It’s a great time to remember all the great compliments you have received or spend an evening looking back on how your hobbies have developed. Are you walking faster and longer miles? Have you reached a new romantic milestone? Do you deserve some recognition about how well you have tackled all pandemic challenges?

This Full Moon’s traditional meaning may bring out a dark side of Leonine energy. January is associated with nature’s most distinctive elements leaving packs of canines seen prowling despite the chill in the air. It brings perspective to the difficulty and the importance of what is required for survival when the temperatures are low and the natural world lies dormant. The energy points to a scarcity mindset many felt during the wintertime with the desire to cull resources despite the fact of modern luxuries and a drastically reduced sense of urgency behind those instincts.

Leo gives as much as it gets and places a premium on the give and take dynamic of any relationship. Thursday’s Full Moon emphasis on that scarcity could end up working in tandem with Leo’s what about me attitude and result in a seriously bruised ego. The trick to avoiding such an outburst is to look at what’s abundant, what can be spared, and therefore shared in your life.

This is a Full Moon to remember Leo’s capacity for benevolence and cut acquaintances and friends some slack if they come and ask for a favor. Even an I.O.U. will suffice for the moment.

It is a powerful Moon to get lifted. To elevate from stagnation and live the life we deserve. This Full Moon reminds and urges us to tap into the energy of every Full Moon using our energy wisely without letting a lunar cycle pass. Especially this year, it is imperative that we do so, that we let go of what holds us back and ties us down and that we no longer allow the forces outside of ourselves dictate our ability to experience love and happiness.

Personally, I hear the call as I have a lot of work to do. The signs are so clear and near, that they are undeniable. And yet something causes a failure to launch, a hesitation despite trust and believe being at it’s highest. Personally I will beat my earth drum during this Full Moon to release those ties, giving back everything that no longer serves my purpose.

May you find yours on this magical night and always while you gaze at the Moon, spellbound, in awe of its beauty. 🙏🏼💙


We are the co-creators of our life and the time is now. More than ever are we needed to support Mother Earth and each other. Together we discover and explore our unique gifts in times of strengths, in times we lean on each other, and in times when we learn from each other. This blog started as an outlet and what I ultimately called my “Warriors Journey.” It was a way to document the ups and downs of my life, sharing my hardships as well as my successes. It showcased the struggles, but more important the ways of how to overcome them. Although we are warriors each and every day, I realized that having to be a warrior, comes from a place of pain. I decided to rename this blog, and “Phoenix Rising” now stands for the story of overcoming such a painful place. My motivation for this blog hasn’t changed and I hope to share inspiration and hope, to create a sense of belonging, a space of being heard, and connecting with like minded beings who instill a sense of oneness. We are never alone, and we are unstoppable in the pursuit of what sets our soul on fire. Who I am in a nutshell... 
I am an energy healer and Reiki Master. I am surviving a chronic disease that I’ve sent into remission three times since my initial bout, 15 years ago. I continuously challenge the status quo and by doing so I change my stars. I am a believer that anything is possible. I am a hopeless romantic and I believe that true love exists on various levels. I am an optimist that will always see the glass as half full. I am a dreamer, believing in endless possibilities. Not even the sky is the limit. I have jumped off of the hamster wheel, and I am writing a new chapter. I am chasing my Nirvana to support my most authentic self. This is my story, I am that Phoenix and I am rising from the ashes. Namaste 🙏🏼💙🦋

  1. Wow, that was a mouthful young lady. A veritable soul speak if ever I heard one ❤️
    As for the moon…I sang to it at 3am…well, it was behind a blanket of cloud as it buckets down here. Isn’t that a deserved breath of life in its many forms, we’ve had a drought for 10 years so now it won’t stop raining. Only in Australia, the land of plenty…of droughts and floods, tempest and storm 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 😂 🤣

    1. Oh wow better take all the rain you can get. 😳 To wait another 10 years is a little while. The moon was behind storm clouds here as well but I got to see it the next day which was still pretty amazing. 😘💙🦋
