8 Leo Full Moon Rituals To Try

1. Boldly step forth

Noble Leo is the zodiac’s hero, always willing to take a chance or speak up when nobody else dares. Summon your courage, even if that means acting in the face of your fear, because you know it’s the right thing to do. This is the magnanimous leadership that Leo illustrates when expressing its highest vibration.

Leo is the galactic guardian of creativity, glamour, romance and fertility. Shifting your attention inward, you can also use the energy of the full moon in Leo to do some self-reflection and fast-track personal growth. Take an inventory of the places in your life where you could step up to a higher level of responsibility. Perhaps go a stride further and imagine how you can use your influence to create a greater connection to the world around you.

2. Grab the headlines

Under the potent Leo full moon, you could see your efforts come to light in a bold and attention-grabbing way. We all have something worthy of shouting from the rooftops, and the Leo full moon ritual gives us permission to intentionally self-promote.

FWIW, tooting your own horn isn’t an act of narcissism. When you own your gifts publicly you get in touch with the wonder of your unique and divine talents. It creates a sense of deep gratitude for the life you get to live! The trick is to focus outward instead of just trolling for applause and validation:

  • How will your offerings benefit other people?
  • What’s in it for them?
  • And, are you acting in a spirit of service rather than servicing your own ego?

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with reveling solely in your own superpowers. While you’re gazing at the Leo full moon, do a round of virtual fist-bumps with your inner circle, with each of you taking a few minutes to boast about your latest accomplishments while the others cheer wildly for your amazingness!

Have you been hiding your light at work? Turn it up to stadium-beam level in the two weeks that follow the January 25 full moon. This is the perfect time to start a buzz on social media or to set up a pitch meeting with a client you want to woo. Be sure to include all the ways that YOU are the best at what you do.

3. Just dance

Full-bodied self-expression is what this lunar event is all about, so bailamos, people! Need a visual? Bring out your inner Super Bowl Rihanna if you like! Whether you’re burning up a dance floor or trying out TikTok moves, let the dance revolution enter your life as an ongoing tradition. Daily dance breaks are good for the soul—and the heart, the organ Leo rules. There’s no time like the present to get yours pumping at a cardio-approved BPM.

4. Give birth to something

Leo is the sign of fertility, and this moment is ripe for creation. If you’ve been struck by baby fever, take decisive action. Maybe that means cutting ties to a “will they, won’t they” energy vampire so you can manifest a partner who shares your desire to build a family, be it through natural birth or adoption. Set up a doctor’s appointment if IVF treatments are something you are wanting to explore, or just get to babymakin’ the natural way.

Figuratively speaking, you may feel a strong urge to “birth” a creative project that’s been hovering in the embryonic stage of development. Set up home-recording equipment or book studio time. Write the outline for your genre-busting novel or get the production line set up for your Etsy store wares. Whatever the case, take a lion-hearted leap in a proactive direction.

Since Leo is the sign that rules fame, this divine timing of the January 25 Leo full moon might help draw some public acclaim when your masterpiece is ready for its big reveal.

5. Shine bright like a (conflict-free) diamond

Glamazon Leo is the sign that rules pleasure, indulgence and full-bodied self-expression. Break out the sequins, bold patterns and glittery everything. Who cares if you’re only making a coffee run? Rather than fade into the background, wear something that might be more appropriate for a red-carpet sashay than a slushy, snowy day. Be it a pair of silver Bowie boots or an animal print teddy coat, take advantage of this lunar light to master the art of the selfie.

Under the light of the vivacious Leo full moon, interacting with your social media followers—and sliding into someone’s DMs—could turn the key to opportunity! Just check yourself if you start comparing and despairing as you scroll through other people’s feeds. And try not to start any needless rivalries, just to keep things interesting.

6. Visualize your soulmate

Romance falls under passionate Leo’s domain: that delicious moment when a spark of attraction becomes a burning flame of desire. You may feel extra lusty near this full moon—and in the sign of passionate, playful Leo, you could be surprised by WHO turns your head. Keep your heart and mind open. Taking a chance on someone who is not your usual type could turn out to be one of the most exciting decisions you’ve made in a long time.

Not sure what or who you’re looking for? Get into the imaginative spirit of Leo and make a vision board for your love life. Sit down with a stack of magazines, scissors and glue and pull together a collage of inspiring images. No judgment! Though the pictures that call to you might only make sense to your subconscious mind, their meaning will reveal itself over time.

7. Have an early Valentine’s Day celebration

Champagne by moonlight? Yes, please. If you’re comfortable with traveling, you could dream up plans for a baecation—and find the perfect rental to suit your desires.

8. Spread generosity (and let go!)

In its highest expression, regal Leo is the power of abundance and loves to share its gifts. Here’s your chance to open up your treasure chest and spread some generosity with our Leo full moon ritual.

Leo is the fire sign that rules abundance. In our consumer culture, it’s easy to keep on craving more, more, more. While there’s nothing wrong with collecting beautiful treasures, it’s easy to be so focused on amassing that we forget to acknowledge our trove. This Leo full moon ritual helps you feel good about letting go: of stuff!

Sift through your closet, jewelry collection, cupboard and storage spaces. Pull out objects that you just aren’t (and probably won’t be) using and place them in a pile. Then separate out the really nice pieces like say, that designer dress you bought last year that still has the tags on it: Is there anyone in your life who could benefit from these items? Rather than hoarding for the rainy day that will never come, consider gifting them to a loved one, or donating to a charity auction if they hold great value.

Letting go sends a powerful message to the universe, one that might even be your mantra for a Leo full moon ritual. For example:

  • I have faith that I can attract abundance in the ways that are right for me
  • Is there someone in your life who has been a champion for you lately?

Other Leo Full Moon Ritual Ideas To Try

  • What proper Lion/Lioness doesn’t tend to their mane? Book an appointment with a trendy stylist and give your tresses a complete makeover. A wild up-do or color job could be in store.
  • Set up a photo shoot or snap selfies and post to your social media accounts. Leo energy loves to show off on the virtual catwalk—and a Leo full moon could bring that winning profile pic. Consider a professional photo shoot. How about a new headshot for your LinkedIn?
  • Put yourself out there. Leo is the sign of romance. This bold full moon buoys your courage. Go ahead and put yourself out there. Surprise a special someone with a dinner invite over and plan a surprise or two for the evening.
  • Romance yourself with a bouquet of flowers or something new for your wardrobe that makes you feel like your fiercest self.
  • Focus on your back or heart area, both of which are ruled by Leo!
  • Give back to No. 1. Gift yourself with a romantic bouquet of flowers, or a piece of signature jewelry.
