Sweet Moon Diaries: Full Moon in Leo (January 2021) Full Wolf Moon!  This moon is a fickle moon that will shake things up and spur you into action.  With a fire sign in the moon, it invites you to reignite the spark within you and make peace with your past in an effort to light the path, the heart, and the way.  Let's go!

Welcome to the latest edition of Sweet Moon Diaries! Every month, I keep a diary of the moon cycles in order to record my moods, impressions, moon magic spells, and full moon rituals. The theme for the Leo Full Moon is pop, sparkle, and shine!

That's another thing I do. I choose a theme that matches the impressions of the full moon and new moon that come out every month. 

Whatever the case may be, there are lots to talk about here! Signup for a free moon reading now through my email newsletter. You'll get access to all the past issues I've put out, as well as the current new moon reading!

In the meantime, you might like to take a look at the new moon in Capricorn reading I did! All of my moon readings are timeless, meaning you can use many of the tips and resources with any new or full moon that comes along.

It's important to note that full moons are all about stirring things up and releasing things.  The full wolf moon is the mid-winter moon meant to highlight things, meant to place things in the forefront of your mind to be dealt with.  

This moon is all about the interworkings of the subconscious mind.  It likes to play hide and seek with our feelings and thoughts.  It enjoys playing games with our hopes and dreams.  It's up to you to deal with whatever floats to the surface in the dreamy landscape that is your mind.  

With a Leo full moon, know that you are meant to shine!  Know that there is a star-quality within you that must be shared with the world, even if only in some small way.  It's the kind of moon that burns things off, using its powerful reach into all things bright and shiny.  

My recommendation to you: Go with it!  Roll with the punches with the Leo full moon energy!  It's here to move things along rather quickly, so we can move onto bigger and better things.  


The Leo full moon is a fickle moon, to be sure!  This is a moon that is diverse and wants a little of everything.  So, if you end up feeling a little scatter-brained, at least now you'll know you're not in this alone.  I feel it too!

To deep-dive even further into the full moon in Leo, signup for the Moon and Seasonal newsletter!  It's filled with moon readings, equinox celebrations, and witchy holidays known as the Sabbats.  Oh, and did I mention it's free?

This is a moon that is ambitious and trying to achieve a lot!  It makes sense to me because Leo is a bit of an overachiever in life.  He's also got this star quality about him that sorta helps him glide through life, living off of his looks and charm.  Today, he's going to share a little of this energy with you!

For the next few days, you may exhibit hidden talents and dreams that you may have laughed off in the past.  You may have thought that those ambitions to be silly or perhaps far too easy for you!  Leo is here to say that those are the abilities and talents that need to take center stage and shine.

You may find yourself feeling more confident and in control of your life, even with all of the scattered energy in the air!  You may find yourself secretly smiling for no reason like you know something no one else knows.  That's because nobody knows you better than you know yourself!

Leo really wants to help you pop, sparkle, and shine!  He wants to add a little color to your life and make it more interesting.  But, he can't do that until you make a clearing in the magical corners of your mind!

This full moon brings with it a certain zest for life!  You may be feeling more ambitious and confident in yourself.  You may uncover hidden talents and abilities.  If this is the case, you may enjoy working with Archangel Haniel, the moon angel of inspiration!

Don't be surprised if areas of weakness are highlighted!  If you have confidence and self-esteem issues and you take things to heart, this may be the moon for you!  This moon purges the way you see yourself, so that you may see yourself in a better light, and with the eyes of love, the way an angel would see you.

Sometimes, painful issues emerge to the surface of the water to break free!  From here, we can begin to rebuild ourselves and our confidence like the phoenix from the ashes or like any good Leo sign would do.

Are you ready?  I know I am!  This is a wonderful time to practice glamour spells and glamour magic to boost your confidence and bring out your star qualities.


The Leo full moon brings with it the ability to work with fire!  This can be anything from fire divination to burning herbs in your cauldron.  

This month, I'm going to be working with my new tiny cauldron to craft some fire element spells!  As a fire sign myself, an Aries sun sign, I too love working with fire, whether it be candle magick spells or burning secret love notes to the universe, it's magic to my senses.

This moon phase finds me burning herbs and incense in my tiny cauldron that I bought from Altered Sage on Etsy!  It's super tiny and cute.  I plan on getting a large cauldron at a later date, but for now, I'm in love with my mini-cauldron.  I call her Eartha!

I'm also going to be doing some spells with matches!  I've used matches in previous spells and the result was always instant.  So, if you're looking to get fast results from a love spell on how to manifest a specific person, for example, you might like to work with matches, burning herbs, and the wood element of paper to get started!

In the past, I've gotten results from fire spells within 24-hours!  I plan on spending the next few days getting the most out of the full moon by mixing, matching, and burning things right up.  Combine that with fast herbal ingredients like cayenne pepper and ground ginger root and you've got instant manifestations on hand!

This is a really great time to do spells that are Leo fire sign related.  You might like to do spells to gain more compliments and secret admirers.  Spells to gain recognition, awards, and success would work instantly right now too.  

You might end up getting compliments out of nowhere!  People might suddenly be drawn to you like a magnet with a little fresh basil in your bra for good measure.  

I definitely plan on using the Leo fire sign energy to gain recognition and success!  I am going through a phase where I want to come out of my shell and let myself be known to the world.  Leo is the perfect astrological sign to boost my confidence in overdrive!

For more on how to work with herbs, head on over to the magical herbarium for herbal witchcraft!  I cover the spell ingredients I use and how they work in a spell.  Herbs are magic!

Leo Full Moon Goddess of the Month

This full moon, I'll be working with Goddess Freya, she's how self-love and romantic love go together!  The Goddess Freya is known as a bold warrior goddess of romantic love.  This hot little moon goddess pairs perfectly with a Leo moon phase!

First of all, she's the kind of goddess that spurs you into action, in any area of your life you may be lagging behind in.  She's a total babe in that she gives you a massive confidence boost and sex appeal.  

I figure with Valentine's Day right around the corner, I've been feeling a burning hot desire to work with her again.  Freya is actually one of my patron goddesses and she's in charge of my love life!  You can try my 2-minute love spell with Goddess Freya from last year for self-love and romantic love, as it works like a charm every time.

Working with moon goddess Freya is meant to be fast-acting and powerful!  Lately, I've been struggling with my self-confidence after a lady at the park made a mean comment to me about my looks and aging.  It was the first time in a long time that I started to doubt myself and I took her comment to heart.

But, the more I thought about it, the more I knew that the combination of the Leo full moon and Mercury in Retrograde brought my insecurity to the surface to be dealt with!  That woman is also dealing with her own insecurities, as she saw me as someone she could pick on as a mirror reflection of her own thoughts about herself.

It made me look at things in a new way.  It gave me a fresh take on the woman in question and why her comment affected me so badly.  

I am a sensitive person and I take things to heart.  That much is true.  But, in this situation, she was my mirror and I was hers.  

Therefore, working with Goddess Freya for this next moon phase will set me free of my insecurities!  Freya likes to point things out and give you a fresh take on the things people say to you.  

At the end of the day, the comment she said to me to make me feel small and inadequate, was really a measure of how she really feels about herself.  Thanks, Goddess Freya!  She packs an emotional punch when it comes to self-love.

This moon phase, Goddess Freya will help me bust out of ruts and routines!  She'll help me amass the confidence to feel good about myself no matter what people say.  That's something that is absolutely priceless, don't you think?

Leo Full Moon Goddess Freya 2-Minute Love Spell

For the Leo full moon, I'm going to do another 2-minute love spell with Goddess Freya!  I'm going to do one for self-love and one for romantic love then add some herbal ingredients to activate the magic within!

To do this simple love spell, simply start by writing a letter to the universe!  Make it a love note addressed to your higher self and a love note for romantic love if that's what you'd like to go for.

If you're feeling a little down on yourself, she's the perfect girl to call on!  Goddess Freya is like a walking love spell in and of herself.  This girl exudes confidence!

If you feel like you're lacking in the confidence department, write a love note to yourself with the assistance of goddess Freya, as she makes you bold enough to ask for what you want!  Not only that, but Freya will give you a boost of confidence that will make you feel instantly attractive.

Everything you'd like to embody, write it down in your love note.  Write it down in pink ink if you can.  You can even add heart stickers!

I recommend writing it down in a Valentine's Day greeting card, where you have the space to write everything you feel in your heart chakra.  Ask Freya for exactly what you want and be crystal clear about it.  Freya likes women that are bold!

If you're a man reading this, the same applies to you!  This 2-minute self-love spell will include words like exuberance, self-confidence, self-love, self-adoration, and body love too.  It will be a love note to yourself with all the bells and whistles.

Throw some glitter and confetti in between your greeting card and seal the envelope with a kiss.  Where the flap closes and meets the middle, leave a kiss mark with your signature vegan lipstick!

While you're hiking on your favorite trail, leave your love note somewhere in the trees or under a rock, as long as it's in a secluded place where someone is less likely to find it.  As you leave the trail behind, blow three kisses towards your love note as you walk away.  This seals the spell tight!

As the day goes on, watch your confidence grow.  You'll begin to see people looking at you, being attracted to you.  Why?  You are a highly attractive person!

You've got it going on!  Best of all, the goddess Freya will let you know it.  Simply soak in the moment, as compliments pour in and your confidence soars.
