The full moon in February falls on February 3, 2015. One day after Imbolc or St Brigid’s day, which celebrates the half way mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox, and Groundhog Day. This full moon is known as the Full Snow Moon, it was said that the heaviest snowfalls happened during this time. It has also been known as the Full Hunger Moon due to supplies laid over for the winter dwindling.
The word February is born from the Latin word Februarius, from Latin februare meaning to "purify" or "expiate." February is a unique month in that the holiday season is truly over, we have used January to get back into our normal routine and now we are looking forward to spring. It has been called the transition month. The perfect time to finish off projects so that we are ready for the return of warmer days when we will want to be outdoors.
Using the thought “to purify”, what can we release in our lives in the form of finishing off projects and seeing where we are at with any goals we made back in January? Anything that you feel needs a breath of fresh air to re-invigorate it.
To do this make a list of all the things you wanted to get done this winter. Cross of those you have completed and start itemizing the rest of the list in the order of importance to you. This works equally well for any resolutions or goals you made in January. It could be a simple as reading a book you have wanted to read for a few months. Now is the perfect time, winter is still upon us, and our homes are cozy and warm. From now until the new moon see how many of those items you can complete and cross off your list.
Always thinking, always observing, always wondering and pondering the things that make life go round.
