In recent weeks and months, we have been learning more about who we are and how we are wired. We have been asked to look at and tell the truth about love, money, self-worth, and what we value. We have been faced with the absolute necessity of taking care of ourselves – what is not negotiable about what we need and how we must prioritize it.

And this Valentine’s Day Leo Full Moon continues to ask us to get clear about who we are, what is true for us, and what we need in relationship. Specifically – it invites us to consider how we express ourselves and how we communicate our truth.

Each of us wants to be heard, felt, and seen. We want to be recognized for who we truly are. We deeply crave it, and it is also a scary prospect. After all, if no one sees our true selves, they cannot judge us, confirm that we are unworthy, or dismiss our value.

The antidote to this often unconscious fear that stops us in our tracks is very simple and yet one of the hardest things we will ever do. As individuals, we must decide that we are worthy.

We must feel – and stand in – our own value. It is the deep inner knowing that you are here on Earth for a reason, that the truth you feel inside has a purpose. The more you trust yourself, the more the world around you will begin to see that you have a valuable contribution to make. The more the world around you will treat you accordingly with financial security, healthier relationships, recognition for your accomplishments, and other rewards.

Two t-squares during this Leo Full Moon (actually four if you count Sun/Mercury and Pluto/Venus separately) ask us to “get” this lesson. Every single planet in the chart is telling us this message. See below for details.

So what is the trick? During this Valentine’s Day – find a way to fall in love with yourself. To see your own gifts and your own beauty. If you don’t feel beautiful, find one thing you like about yourself and start there.

If you can’t find even one thing, at least have the discipline to not say anything negative about yourself. If you can’t say something nice about yourself, don’t say anything at all. From the place of letting go of negative self-talk, positive self-evaluation can begin to emerge.
