February Full Snow Moon
Updated: Mar 18, 2022
Ready to learn about the Full Snow Moon and uncover some fun ways to soak in the divine energy?
First, the name Snow Moon was given to this month’s moon because it occurs in one of the coldest times of the year. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, like many other full moons, this one has a variety of names. “It’s also known as the Storm or Hunter Moon; the Wolf or Candles Moon; the Bald Eagle Moon or Eagle Moon; Bear Moon or Black Bear Moon. The Dakota called this the Raccoon Moon, and certain Algonquin peoples named it the Groundhog Moon. The Haida named it Goose Moon”
It will appear full for about three days around this time, from about midnight Tuesday morning to about midnight Thursday night. If you charge moon water or like to put out your bits and baubles, charge your crystals and creative tools - now is the time.
The Full Moon is connected to the season of Summer, the stage of Mother in womanhood, and a woman’s ovulation cycle. Because a Full Moon is considered the “energetic peak” of the month, it’s the perfect time to tap into its power and practice sublime self-care. You may be in the mood for deep breathing in nature, quiet time to explore your creativity thru art or writing, maybe simplifying your space is exactly what you need. You decide and carve out the time on your calendar this week.
Here are 5 additional ways you soak in the energy and power of this moon:
1. Vibe High. Look Inside.
Take an inventory of where in your life you could level up. Harness the power of Leo energy… the kind that is willing to stand in the gap for others and open to taking a chance with everyone else plays it safe. Summon your courage and flip your fears. Try out being the magnanimous Leo-like leader you know is inside and express its highest vibration.
2. Move Your Body.
Shake your booty to “Hips Don’t Lie” with the divinely spicey Shakira… or do a Shaking Meditation with Yoga Girl®. The last few weeks have been filled with getting things done, being social, and setting new intentions. Now it is time to shake the heavy residual energy off and celebrate all you have accomplished.
3. Be bold. Launch It.
Do you have a project you have been holding on to “until after the pandemic is over”? It’s time to stop waiting for normal to return and start looking at the present. Use the energy of this vivacious Leo Moon to start your podcast, send your book to the editor, or start that side business that has been calling you.
4. Connect without Comparison.
Write a list of the people you want to reconnect with over the next four weeks. Hop on over to social media to see what they’ve been up to and pepper in what you saw to personalize your invites to get together. Regardless of if you are able to get together in person or not - be sure to clear your mind and reset before your time together. Leave your worries and negative energy “at the door” and lean in with a whole heart to your moments together. Most of all, don’t bring comparison to the table with you. We are all here to live out our own purpose. We are all unique. Celebrate your differences and successes alike.
5. Write It Out.
The Full Moon is all about completion and a time to cleanse and release what no longer works for you. This is an ideal time to write down your deepest inner thoughts - those holding you back or keeping you small - and then burn them… safely and securely. This ritual feels SO GOOD! I often journal it all out before I write on my burn papers so I can look back at what I have released and celebrate how far I have come.
