I’ve been hearing the word drama a lot lately. It can be used in so many ways. Usually it’s not referred to in a pleasant way. There are tv dramas and movie dramas, and they usually involve emotional themes.
With the full moon looming in Leo, I’m thinking of the themes of drama, struggle, and courage. See, I think the thick underbelly of drama is really suffering. Drama might be coming out in a loudish way but it’s usually expressing an underlying pain, pain in relationships, pain in finances, pain in life struggle. People in drama might have misplaced desires and are often taking part in the cycles of their own struggles. There’s a long ranging theme in healing where you can learn to experience pain without the suffering. The suffering is the drama—it’s the mismanaged ways we use to deny or step around pain. For some it’s a way of coping, but it’s usually dysfunctional.
For this Full Moon in 🌕 Leo, as with all theme emergence relating to Leo there is a real need to tap into courage. Courage is homegrown, it starts within by calling ourselves out in the areas of growth where we can most make a small change to improve our own self-perpetuated struggles.
Real drama is okay. Do you need to ugly cry? Absolutely do it, do it past level 11 if you need to. Also check yourself to see how certain levels of mature containment can help modify the place where you get caught up in your own false stories, perpetuations of struggle, etc.
Leo is a beast, an animal, an represents a very strong force that can be used for good or ill. In choosing good, we choose awareness. Opening our eyes to those areas where we are making our pain last longer or dragging it out too deeply—checking into our reactions can be a point of examination that will prove fruitful during this time.
Uranus/North Node is squaring the Full Moon in Leo/Sun in Aquarius, so the pressure is on. Find the release valve and open it in a way that doesn’t light a fire somewhere else. Take small steps to avoid drama. The key is Taurus (move slow) and make small adjustments to reset your rudder. The key to this moon is also courage: courage to see and to make the small change that’s possible at this time. Then be deliberate, and carry it out with full commitment.

I love that, Ka. I’m not a fan of drama, but the way through it is embodied in that paragraph, not always easy, but the clarity that comes from our courage to look at ourselves honestly is worth the effort. ❤
Gee, now that is the 21st century. Your test cake has colored acupuncture holes 🤣 Great share dear lady, the marina picture also spoke a thousand words of a lovely day to go with it all 😀❤️🙏🏽
Haha 🤣 one of my colleagues brought in sweets to share for her birthday 🎉 . An Aquarius, she celebrates for the whole month. Happy to be here; we are all learning tons, and enjoying the whole bit. 😃 The marina is gorgeous and this city is just such a wonderful town 💗
Thanks, Mark 😃 Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Love this Ka! Truth and wisdom 🧡
Thank you, Karen 💛🌻
So true! I love what you wrote here: People in drama might have misplaced desires and are often taking part in the cycles of their own struggles. I know many people whose lives are constant drama and they seem to thrive on it,. But as you say here they are just caught in cycles of their own struggles, and while we don’t want to be drawn into it as well, our compassion, rather than our disdain, can perhaps help ease the way for them. And us.
I like what you wrote about opening the release valve in a way that doesn’t light a fire somewhere else, taking small steps, and having courage with commitment. Having a good “ugly” cry can be helpful, too, just remember to breathe deeply between the sobs.
Very powerful words. Change, drama, courage, self-awareness all coalesce.
“…courage to see and to make the small change that’s possible at this time. Then be deliberate, and carry it out with full commitment.” The small change that’s possible at this time really spoke to me of doing the best we can in any given moment.
