The Snow Moon for many, it doesn’t snow much here so we will celebrate the Awakening Moon, signifying Mother Earth’s awakening around us as we just celebrated Imbolc, the midpoint between Winter solstice and the Spring equinox. May we be awakened as the Earth awakens.

This celebration will be family friendly, as always. And will be followed by a potluck.

About the Awakening Moon:
The February Full Moon falls on the 8th or 9th of the month, depending on your time zone. It rests in the sign of Leo, and its energy comes to tend to the fire that lives within our hearts.

It comes to clear away all that dims our light and separates us from feeling connected to our journey.

Leo is ruled by the Sun, so whenever we have a Full Moon in the sign of the Sun, it’s extra special.

When Leo holds space for the Full Moon, its like a ray of light shining down on all that feels dark and heavy in our lives.

Leo is a fire sign that reminds us to connect with all that lights us up. It reminds us to connect with our inner fire, with our inner Sun, and to remember that life is for experiencing rather than controlling.

What sets your soul on fire? What fans your inner flame? What brings you a sense of purpose as you move through the experiences of life?

These are some of the questions the February Full Moon poses for us. It wants us to connect with these questions so we can work on clearing away all separates us from feeling present and at peace with our lives.

There is something strengthening, motivating, and restorative about this Full Moon too, not just because it falls in the sign of Leo the lion, but also because it forms a harmonious alignment with the planet of motivation, Mars.

Mars will be like a motivational speaker at our side, championing us along as we take on any challenges or projects during this time.

Mars’ energy will help inspire us to push past any fears that are holding us back or keeping our inner light small.

If there are fears you have been holding onto, if there are things you would rather not look at, or pains that have felt just too heavy to carry, allow a little space for this Full Moon energy to hold you.

Allow a little space for this Full Moon to start moving and shifting things out of your body, out of your mind, out of your heart, and out of your life.

Full Moons are always portals for releasing, so if we tune in and allow the Full Moon’s energy to infuse with our own, we will find ourselves supported to let go of all that no longer serves.

If there is something you have wanted to do, something you have wanted to try, something you have wanted to say, this Full Moon will give you the dose of self-belief and self-confidence that you need.

Its energy is there for us to use, but it’s only real if we act on it, if we let it in, if we allow it to guide us.

As long as we are moving from the heart, we should allow ourselves the freedom to try, fail, learn, and everything in between.

Overall, the February Full Moon is a time to stand in our power. It is a time to connect to our higher selves, and to walk in alignment with our highest calling. It is a time to connect to our own inner Sun, the core of who we are.
