The planet interactions during the Full Moon give you more information about what the overall experience may be like. Following is brief description of those impacts with planets that fall within 5 degrees +/- the Sun and Moon. That means we are looking at 0-10 degrees of all of the signs.

Sun and Moon - This opposition brings a dynamic interplay between the energies of these two signs. Leo is associated with individuality, self-expression, and personal creativity, while Aquarius is linked to collective ideals, group dynamics, and humanitarian concerns. The opposition emphasizes the need to balance personal desires with a broader perspective that considers the well-being of the community.

Jupiter - A T-square is a challenging astrological aspect pattern involving three planets or points that form a right-angled triangle, creating a dynamic and potentially tense configuration. In this case, we have a T-square involving Jupiter in Taurus, the Sun in Aquarius, and the Moon in Leo. The Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Leo form the base of the T-square, creating tension between individual expression and collective growth. Jupiter in Taurus at the apex of the T-square indicates that the tension seeks resolution through the pursuit of expansive goals in practical, earthy realms. There may be a desire for material abundance, financial growth, or stability, but the challenge lies in reconciling these desires with the tension between individual and collective needs.

Saturn - An inconjunct, also known as a quincunx, is an astrological aspect where two planets are approximately 150 degrees apart. Saturn has this aspect with the Moon in Leo. This aspect signifies a certain degree of tension and adjustment between the energies of the planets involved. The inconjunct suggests a conflict between Saturn's need for structure and discipline and the expressive, creative energy of the Full Moon in Leo. Individuals may feel tension between adhering to rules and expressing themselves freely.

Venus - another planet inconjunct during the full moon, Venus, connects at this odd angle from 2 degrees of Capricorn, where the planet finds things to be a bit too cold and rigid. With Venus in Capricorn inconjunct the Moon in Leo, there's a tension between personal desires and responsibilities within relationships. The Moon in Leo craves attention, admiration, and individual expression in love, while Venus in Capricorn seeks a more structured and responsible approach to partnerships. Individuals may grapple with finding ways to meet their emotional need for recognition and appreciation while honoring commitments and responsibilities within relationships.

Tsquare - while not directly aspecting the full moon, of note is the Mercury and Mars conjunction in Capricorn, that squares both Chiron in Aries and the South Node in Libra. The end of some sort of battle over language, documents, maybe even riots is possible. This is something that happened in the past, that is coming to a turbulent and possibly swift end, or at least a chapter of it is.
