Full Moon February 5, 2023 – Lovers’ Quarrels

Full Moon February 2023 AstrologyThe Full Moon in Leo on February 5, 2023, is square Uranus. So the meaning of the Full Moon February 2023 astrology is using self-awareness, open-mindedness and flexibility to adapt to unexpected change.

The February 2023 Full Moon will have a particularly challenging influence on intimate relationships. Uranus creates emotional detachment and a strong need for independence. Venus square Mars only 15 hours before the Full Moon is the aspect most associated with sexual tension and lovers’ quarrels.

Full Moon February 2023 Astrology

The Leo Full Moon on Sunday, February 5, 2023, is located at 16°40′ Leo. As shown in the chart below, it is square Uranus. The resulting triangle is called a T-square aspect pattern. All the red aspects and the T-square create highly charged energy that is difficult to control. Venus square Mars does the same. The fixed stars activated by the February 5 Full Moon are also challenging.

Full Moon Meaning

Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family, and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces, such as work versus home or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts peak at a Full Moon. So you can use increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an honest and balanced look at your relationships. You will see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

Uranus Change

Full Moon square Uranus creates highly charged electric energy that can manifest as unexpected and sudden change, excitement and peculiar events. It gives an unsettled feeling and an almost compulsive need for stimulation. This can result in rapid mood swings, emotional outbursts and eccentric behavior.

Anticipating something new, you may become restless and anxious. Yet without excitement and stimulation, you may become bored and easily distracted. Your instincts and reflexes may be strong and quick but not accurate. So it is essential not to force change or act impulsively. Reckless actions bring the risk of conflict, chaos and accidents.

Emotional detachment, lack of commitment and a strong need for independence can result in relationship problems. Patience and sensitivity are needed, but your instinct may be to rebel or run from emotionally demanding situations. Although tantrums are upsetting, at least the air will be cleared, and calm will return quickly. Venus square Mars in the Full Moon February 2023 horoscope increases the risk of relationship drama.

Fortunately, this aspect allows you to stay open-minded enough to experiment and quickly change your approach. You can adapt to rapidly changing conditions and find opportunities amid the chaos. Uranus also combines a humanistic and a scientific approach. Dispassionately viewing things can lead to inventive solutions to problems.

T-Square Achievement

A T-Square aspect pattern is formed by the Sun, Moon and Uranus. The red aspects are charged with dynamic energy you can use to work, act and achieve your goals. Energy is stored and bottled up in the opposition and discharged along both squares to the triangle’s apex, Uranus. This is where achievement is directed. With no blue aspects, you cannot relax. With no green aspects, you act without thinking.

T-Squares make you very active but can make you “act first, think later” and not the other way around. With a square aspect, work is carried out continuously and progressively. But a T-Square can paralyze the energy transfer. This leads to rigid states of awareness where you cannot change and make the same mistakes repeatedly.

So you should complete your work quickly and successfully. After a short or long break, you can go back to work with renewed vigor. A T-square allows you to work like mad and, when ready, move on to the next job assertively and highly dynamically. [1]

The Constellations

The February 2023 Full Moon is in the middle of the Leo Sign. But as the image below shows, it sits between Constellations Cancer and Leo. The Signs and the Constellations do not match up. Over the last 2000 years, the Constellations have moved nearly 30° out of alignment with the Signs because of the precession of the equinoxes.

The Zodiac was invented only as a measuring device. The ecliptic line in the image below matches the degrees in the horoscope above. Like the original astrologers, I use the Constellations and fixed stars for interpretation, not the Signs.

Full Moon February 2023 [Stellarium]

The two Leo stars on either side of the Moon shown above have Arabic names referring to their position in the Head of the Lion. Not shown is the closest fixed star by Zodiac degree, which is in the northern constellation of Draco, the Dragon.

  • 15♌37 – Kappa Leonis, Al Minliar al Asad
  • 16♌35 – Kappa Draconis, Ketu
  • 16♌40 – Full Moon
  • 18♌11 – Lambda Leonis, Alterf

The Dragon and Lion

Kappa Draconis has the rarely used traditional name Ketu, meaning the Dragon’s Tail. It refers to the south lunar node according to the Vedic/Hindu lunar cycle. In Chinese astronomy, it is named Shaowei, meaning Second Chief Judge.

The stars in the Draco and the Head of Leo are like Saturn and partly like Mars (bold, cruel, heartless, adulterous, criminal, liar, loss of estates, poverty, few friends.) [2]

Constellation Draco the Dragon gives an artistic and emotional but somber nature, a penetrating and analytical mind, much travel and many friends but danger of robbery and accidental poisoning. [2]

Constellation Leo is associated with royal events, especially the ascension or death of kings and queens (election or death of heads of state), assassinations, uprisings and massacres, currency and the stock exchange, the Vatican and the European Union.

The Sea Monster

Uranus (15♉01) conjunct fixed star Menkar (14♉38): Active mind, artistic, scientific and mystical interest and ability, troubles through opposite sex, loss through fire and false friends, good fortune and misfortune alternately, severe injuries from animals. [2]

Menkar causes disease, disgrace, ruin, injury from beasts, sickness, and loss of fortune. [2] This star has a Saturnine character, corresponding to impediments of many kinds, worries, and tests of endurance; in some, this hardens and toughens the individual. [3]

Constellation Cetus the Sea Monster causes laziness and idleness but confers an emotional and charitable nature, with the ability to command, especially in war. Makes one amiable, prudent, and happy by sea and land and helps to recover lost goods. [2]

Full Moon February 2023 Summary

The Full Moon February 2023 astrology is most affected by Uranus. This planet and the red aspects create extremely dynamic, highly charged energy. Through the T-Square, the tension of the Sun opposite the Moon is directed at Uranus. Low self-awareness, stubbornness, or an unwillingness to change and adapt could result in disruptive change, mistakes or accidents. The fixed stars activated by the Full Moon and Uranus increase the risk of negative outcomes.

Close relationships, especially love relationships, will be particularly affected by the February 5 Full Moon astrology. Sun opposite Moon highlights differences in intimate relationships. Full Moon square Uranus gives a need for independence and emotional detachment. Venus square Mars creates sexual or competitive tension. And Uranus conjunct fixed star Menkar is associated with troubles through the opposite sex.

But with self-awareness, open mindlessness, and flexibility, exciting opportunities and marked achievements are possible. This is especially so if you work hard but take breaks to recharge. Promising areas are those ruled by Uranus, including science, computers, the Internet, technology, alternative energy, invention, innovation, artificial intelligence, air travel and space travel. Also, occult fields like prophecy and astrology and humanitarian, social and environmental issues.

Finally, fixed stars, plus Uranus at the apex of the T-square, bring the risk of rebellion, assassinations, and the rise or fall of leaders. There could be unexpected events, accidents and instability (Uranus) affecting the financial and stock markets, European Union and the Vatican (Leo), China (Draco) and ships, especially submarines (Cetus).

The Waning Moon

Astrologically, a full moon is affected by the previous new moon. The January 21 New Moon brings the risk of rushed thinking leading to impulsive actions. But with patience and forethought, you can implement brilliant ideas.

The influence of the February 5 Full Moon lasts for two weeks up to the February 20 New Moon. This waning moon phase is good for releasing and letting go, resting, healing, regenerating, contemplating, meditating, decluttering, harvesting, pruning, and cutting hair.

  1. Thank you for all your hard work and the detail you give in your articles. Much appreciated.

  2. yesterday a terrorist attack in a mosque of peshawer kpk pakistan.sucide bomber killed 100 and injured 150. same day a boat with 57 religious children sank into river.

  3. Artwork for FULL MOON LOVERS QUARREL (BLACK SILHOUETTE ON GREEN)is a poor choice. Racism, sexism, gender & domestic violence issues are represented. I see a person of color with a raised fist about to strike a female.

  4. two people who love the comet but cant agree on its meaning?

    need help with this boss, Sun transit natal, angular descendant in Aquarius. Really gotta look at who of the two has the weight in this corner when quarrelling.

  5. Maybe these two comet lovers are arguing how they want to track Perigee? Will it be the Sun or the Moon?

    My suggestion is to use Moon transit of Betelguese/ Polaris, 29°Gem. This would also be Moon conjunct Canada Moon, 28°Gem50′

    but Sun tracking works just as easily. Set an alarm for 17:54 UT, or 12:54 pm EST.

  6. The meaning of the comet could be a Process of Development.

    At perigee Gemini rising, Mercury 8th.


    Review Age of Aquarius chart, equal houses, Virgo rules 8th.

    In the perigee chart, Part of Fortune takes you to Drama and Criticism. One can take the leap to literature or poetry, perhaps the best example Margaret Atwood’s “Survival”, Sun sextile Chiron.

  7. Comet perigee Canada Moon, with Part of Fortune on cusp of Drama and Criticism. I would go further and include Northrop Frye, criticism, and Robertson Davies, drama. A personal literary Trinity. Not for everyone certainly, but in keeping (in theory) within the tenants of Harold Innis’s Staples thesis. How Innis could see the entenable motives of expats, todays exclusionary woke, hindering a particular geographic efficiency.

    A synastry of Comet Perigee and Age of Aquarius (100% orb) yields a synchronic pair, Moon opposite Jupiter, and Chiron opposite Chiron. A careful offering to those born outside the brackets of Uranus conjunct Neptune (1993).

  8. Earth mimic Celestial Art, chart for Balloon shot down 4 Feb 2023, 2:38pm EST, coordinates (land), reported at Surfside, SC “I had birdseye view and I wish I would have recorded it…. I’m in Surfside Beach SC and it was literally like over my house….crazy” per Shellie Murphy, twitter


    im biased towards longitude.
    Surfside, SC, -78.58 geographic longitude. Buffalo, NY -78.78 long

    Ascendant, Cancer, ruler of tidal zones, Surf.
    Midheaven, “It was like literally, over my house”, Pisces -Aries; Venus, Neptune, Jupiter. Like shooting(Aries) fish (Pisces) in a barrel.

  9. Part of Fortune conjunct Galactic Centre in the Terrestial mimic Celestial chart, the Balloon caper, ‘shot down’ on orders from POTUS.

    the longitude into Canada, lands at Bowmanville-Darlington -78.68, a whistleblower alert. For example, one might be mindful of political meddling in energy market share; new Power Plant designs, ie.SNR’s, a competitive field. Up against aggresive windmill construction, the POTUS bias?

    A second example is more Cosmic, as meteor bombardment from the GC has been written about by LaViolette and others, it is to our fortune that preparedness is well advanced, and perhaps an easy shoot like Buffalo or Balloons, but be mindful of collateral damage, a riskier affair.

  10. Eastern Standard Time, Surfside, SC at the 5 Feb 2023 Full Moon, what I call a Joy fullmoon. Sun and Moon in their planetary Joy houses, 9th and 3rd.

    Pacific Standard Time, a previous Joy fullmoon, Mill Bay, BC, 13 Oct 2019, a chart hanging around in my data base for years, dont know why, maybe waiting for a balloon to fall?

    composite Joy, placidus

    joy placements align, house to sign

    Moon, 3rd Gemini
    Sun, 9th Sagittarius
    Jupiter, 11th Capricorn

    • edit, Jupiter, 11th Aquarius.

      Saturn is in its joy in the 12 house. I have not heard of a planetary joy for the 10th house, but considering the last 20 years there would be a few dwarf planet candidates such as Makemake? the higher octave of Uranus.

      • When constructing the composite Joy, what came to mind was Artificial Intelligence; the quality of the known, 3rd Gemini, verses the quality unknown, 9th Sagittarius.

        The chart is an offering to the AI community, a totem.

  11. With two learning triangles overlayed, small and medium, both sharing 6 Feb 2023 Earthquake square to Eclipse, 8 Nov 2022, what also reveals is its fascimile to the two Joy House fullmoons, Atlantic and Pacific, and composite Sagittarius/Gemini totem. The cosmic arc is Cardinal Air to Fixed Air, fulcrum Mutable Fire, apex Mutable Air. Either side of the fulcrum paint a comet and lunar eclipse.

  12. Vertex used extensively to predict and construct GRB 221009A astrology


    In the 7.8 Earthquake chart im using Vertex 06°Leo16′ conjunct Varuna 06°Leo21′


    as a side note, review GRB 221009A wiki. Its quite startling how this event challenges the standard model. Akin to showing up with thousands of stretchers and bodybags to haul away all the scientists and physicists, cosmologists, and assorted citation chasers.

    • Apologies, more properly that should read: Celestial stretchers and bodybags trine Terrestial.

      Condolences to those suffering the Mid East tragedy.

  13. To the best of my knowledge every Solar X Flare at astrologyking has a chart. They are not neatly organized. All except one are Heliocentric charts. The latest X1.1 Solar Flare is a Geocentric view.


    The geocentric view was looked at first. Moon trine Sun, midpoint Galactic Centre. Open up the orbs and see several eye patterns, with midpoints, Jamie’s recent featured pattern. The Sun is talking to us, except that makes me sound like a charlatan. Come to your own conclusions.

    • that should read:

      Every Solar X Flare at astrologyking has a chart, since the since August 2017 Solar Eclipse. (The September 2017 Solar Flares condensed into One chart). Early on Midpoint studies became a feature of Solar X Flare scholarship.
