I was just about ready to go and lie on my couch when it occured to me that tonight was indeed the full moon. :)
February's full moon is known as the Quickening Moon. It can also be known as the Hunger Moon, or the Ice Moon. This is the month where everyone is starting to get really jittery waiting for spring. The sprouts of new life are edging up under the last of the snow eager to push their way out into that sunshine that we all know is coming within a few weeks. Most of us have cases of cabin fever and are getting antsy with the chilly weather more then ready to start spring and the warmer days ahead.
This is a great time to make plans for your future. What are your hopes and dreams? What do you wish to achieve for yourself? As you look up into the full moon tonight think about what it is that you really want. Your magickal workings tonight should focus on what you want to achieve personally to advance your life and new beginnings.
For the Quickening Moon -
- Colors: Blue and Purple
- Deities: Brighid, Aphrodite
- Gemstones: Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Jasper
- Trees: Rowan and Myrtle
- Herbs: Hysop, Sage, Myrrh
- Element: Fire
Hmmmmm so a night huddled up under a warm blue blanket next to a fire looking at the moon and thinking about the future sounds perfect to me. How bout it? :-)))
Love and Blessings
