How The November 8 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Will Affect You If You're A Leo

Each lunar event has its very own personal brand of magic. New moons bring with them the promise of new beginnings, while full moons are all about release, per Bustle. Of course, things get even more magical when you consider the star sign they land in, eclipses happening around them, and where certain planets are stationed. Before wondering about how a lunar event will impact you spiritually, there's a lot to consider. 

November 8, 2022, is one of those rare occasions when all of the above are unfolding at the exact same time, so buckle up. The November 8 full moon happens to also take place during a total lunar eclipse, as well as while Mars is in retrograde, according to Vice. A lot is going on and you're likely already feeling the intensity building. If you've felt overwhelmed by emotions or uncertainty lately, don't worry because you're not alone. 

Full moons are all about releasing anything that's been holding you back from reaching your goals or weighing you down. They're also about fresh starts, and crucially making room for them. With so much intensity in the air thanks to the eclipse, things can feel extra cloudy this full moon and you could find yourself overwhelmed with what you need to do to get where you want. Understanding how the full moon directly impacts your own zodiac sign is the first step to gaining some clarity, and it's a big one for you, Leo. 

Your career may require closer attention

There are several careers Leos should consider even though you like to enjoy your life to the fullest, so often your job falls into the background and simply feels like a means to an end. Generally, you're okay with this. You love what you do, you're good at it, and it helps you live the life you want. However, lately, you may have been giving it more thought.

Well, that's about to go into full swing with the lunar eclipse falling in your tenth house of career, per Woman & Home. As a Leo, you haven't been thriving as much in your career lately. You've felt a noticeable lack of passion or desire to fulfill your duties, but you have no idea why. What once was a means to an end is now feeling draining and exhausting. 

You want to feel passionate about what you're doing, and your current work environment isn't cutting it. Stylecaster suggests using the energy of this full moon to figure out your next step. Now, that doesn't necessarily mean quitting your job. Perhaps all that's needed is a bit of change — maybe it's time to pursue a new project or seek out a different position. It could be as simple as identifying the areas of your job that are weighing you down and releasing them to make room for new challenges that excite you. 

Balancing work and life is trickier than it seems

Figuring out what's really going on at work isn't the only thing this lunar eclipse and full moon are drawing your attention to, Leo. Home will also be increasingly important. Cracking the code to the perfect work/life balance seems like an unattainable dream sometimes, but this full moon it's important to try. At the end of the day, it could be your battle with balancing life and work that is causing your dissatisfaction.

InStyle suggests taking the opportunity to reflect on the best way for you to maintain a healthy home life without letting your career take over completely. Sounds simple enough, but it's equally as important that you don't let all the fun get in the way of your job either. Life may be feeling a little lackluster lately, and it's likely due to the fact that you feel like you're falling short in every area. 

No one can tell you how best to live your life, it's up to you to figure out how you want to allocate your time and what would bring you the most joy. Elite Daily advises reassessing your expectations, and what you'd consider the best setup to thrive. As a Leo, your 2022 New Year's resolution should've been figuring out what you want. If you haven't done it yet, what better time than under the full moon?
