How The Feb 16 Full Moon Will Affect You If You're A Capricorn

Get ready for the passion and romance to last past Valentine's Day. February's full moon in Leo is happening on the 16th, bringing with it inspiration, passion, and a much-needed confidence boost. This year's Snow Moon, also comes with juxtaposing energy –- the full moon is in fire-sign Leo, while the sun is in water-based Aquarius -– that is going to make you want to bring balance back into your life.

There are a few other planetary movements that are going to affect how the February full moon hits. According to the AstroTwins, Venus and Mars — planets of love and communication — will be connecting with Capricorn, who rules over "long-term goals and public prestige," at the same time as the full moon (via mindbodygreen). The planets have aligned in just a way that fresh starts –- even if they're just a new chapter to an old situation — that happen under the full moon get an extra push towards success.

One other major astrological event that's going to come into play this full moon, according to the mindbodygreen, is the squaring of the lunar North and South Nodes in Taurus and Scorpio. They, too, are asking you to take a look at where you're stuck in your life. These examinations are never easy and often come with major life shifts. So be gentle with yourself.

If you're a Capricorn, make time for self-care during the February full moon

Whether your sun or rising sign is in Capricorn, you're in for a full moon that's going to be more emotional than usual. Better stock up on tissues before February 16, because you're about to dig into some pretty old wounds.

The full moon in fiery Leo falls in your eighth house of intimacy, making for a romantic end to what was probably a practical week for you. We know you're not a romantic, Capricorn, but it's still time to be vulnerable with the people you're closest with. This full moon will give you the confidence boost you need to be brave. Part of finding that courage, Bustle explains, will be in letting go what's stopped you from being able to be open and vulnerable with people in the first place. As we round the corner and look toward the spring, you'll be shedding a winter coat's worth of baggage that's only going to make your relationships more honest and more fulfilling.

For your professional life, Capricorn, now is the time to stop hiding your genius, per mindbodygreen. You're brilliant and you have great ideas — it's time to start sharing them. Being vulnerable can include speaking your mind and sharing your ideas, since there's always a chance someone can reject them. But you can use Leo's courage to help you start letting your co-workers know just how smart and creative you are.
