Step into your power, rally the gang, and share the love because the second full moon of 2022 occurs in the fire sign of Leo. On its own, a Leo full moon injects your life with enough boldness to turn that lion’s roar up to 11. Occurring right after Valentine’s Day and a Mars-Venus conjunction, don’t be surprised if this full moon revitalizes your romantic life (self-love counts!) and creative projects.
I created an illuminating tarot reading for the Leo full moon to help you make the most of this fiery occasion.
What does a full moon in Leo mean?
The moon rules our emotions, and a full moon is the peak of its cycle. Therefore, a full moon in any sign tends to amplify your feelings — which can be a little much for some. If you ever noticed people acting crazy around the full moon, that’s why. The word lunacy comes from luna — the moon.
Unlike last month’s emotional Cancer full moon, this one occurs in a fire sign. Leo is the zodiac sign associated with creativity, personal charm, and enthusiasm. Ruled by the Sun, Leo brings warmth, light, and an infusion of energy to the party.
It’s no surprise that the cards I pulled for your Leo full moon tarot reading represent celebration, friendly gatherings, and the unsullied spirit of a tenderfoot in the wild.
Without further ado, here’s your tarot reading for the full moon in Leo on February 16, 2022.

What’s at the heart of this full moon?
3 of Cups
Community. Celebration. Sisterhood. This card is all about gathering your girl gang and elevating one another. Considering the restrictions imposed by the ongoing pandemic, this may manifest as a group chat, Zoom book club, or intimate outdoor gathering. The important thing is to make sure your nearest and dearest hear how much you love them!
What area of my life is this full moon shining a light on?
Courageous Leo never shies away from a calculated risk, and The Fool is all about standing on the precipice of an unknown adventure! The new project you’ve just started takes center stage as the universe directs its spotlight to your unquenched passions and raw enthusiasm.
You may be beginning with a goal in mind, but The Fool reminds you that it’s only possible to see the next step or two right now. Embrace the beginner’s mindset. Savor the process of making it to the next step and then the next. What lies beyond that will come into awareness when you get there.
How can I celebrate this aspect of myself?
2 of Swords
You may be hearing a lot of conflicting information from teachers, friends, memes, and self-proclaimed experts in the field you’re diving into. If you feel pulled in more than one direction, the 2 of Swords tells you to pause and turn inward. Go for a walk, meditate, or do whatever you do to find stillness and quiet your mind. The answers you seek lie within you.
Remember that this is your journey. Anything that pushes or pulls you off-course may not be aligned with your greatest good. Deciding to not act until you have the information you need counts as making a decision.
What is this full moon calling on me to express or share with my community?
7 of Pentacles
Many hands make light labor. If you have a lot of hard work ahead of you, this may be a time to call on your community for support. Whether you buy pizza and beer for the buddies who help build your garden fence or offer a discount to friends who promote your new business, rewarding those who show up for you lets them know you value their time.
On the flip side, you may be the one who shows up to help a friend in need. If you’re an entrepreneur, it may be time to delegate some of your least-loved tasks to a freelancer or other professional.
What am I ready to release with the waning moon?
Ace of Cups
That emotional bud that never blossomed into the kind of relationship you want is ready for pruning. If you revisited any past love affairs or crushes during the recent Venus retrograde, this might be a good time for emotional cleansing.
Write a letter and burn it. Delete their contact info from your phone. Or, if you still have sentimental objects around your home that remind you of a love never meant to be, a clearing of your physical space may be in order.
To sum it up, this full moon in Leo calls on your to gather, create, and step boldly into your power in any way that feels safe and available to you. Share laughter, joy, and authentic compliments with your community. Spring is coming, and we’ll be dancing barefoot in the grass before you know it!
