Leo Full Moon (February 16, 2022)
When the world and his uncle were predicting a Russian invasion of Ukraine today, I wondered if the Leo Full Moon was to blame. It’s a delicate matter trying to predict what countries and their leaders will do. In my own personal life, this full moon triggered a rant by my wife about her kids, at the precise alignment.
Obviously, she will say that she was just ranting, but, as an astrologer, I recognize when something occurs that there might be some inconjuncts behind the ‘discussion’. Venus and Mars were both inconjunct the Ascendant AND the Moon was inconjunct Pluto. Hence a mother’s concerns about her children’s behaviour.
Moon Inconjunct Pluto
This aspect means that your emotions are very intense and not always easy to deal with. Often your feelings make you want to do or say something without knowing why. Also you may have very intense moods in which you withdraw from those around you into a world of your own. If you do not feel accepted and emotionally supported at home, you may constantly feel guilty for what you think you have done to others, or jealous that people aren’t paying enough attention to you, or generally possessive of those around you.
Venus Conjunct Mars
Sometimes you may be unsure whether to assert yourself, give way to the other person’s demands, or compromise, although that can be the most difficult choice of the three. Much of the time you may be very demanding of those you love, insisting that they give you, and you alone, a great deal of love and attention. But when you realize that your demands will probably drive the other person away, you will give in.
Venus Inconjunct Ascendant
You often feel that you haven’t any right to ask much of those whom you loved. You feel that you must do favors for them instead of asking for their help. For you, love is an act of service, not self-gratification. Also, through relationships with others, you try to learn more about your own and other peoples’ inner workings. For this reason your relationships are more deep and profound than most people’s.

A way of avoiding this kind of conflict (with authority figures) is to learn that you can say what needs to be said and not be forced to remain quiet. You can’t expect your elders to always go along with your ideas, but you should be able to feel confident of your right to say it. The exception to this, of course, is that you do not have any right to say something just to hurt others.
Is that any clearer?
