February 2015 Spiritual and Magical Properties of Essential Oils, Fragrance Oils, and Herbs

february-snow-moon-title

February’s full moon falls on the 3rd.  Snow piles even higher in February, giving this moon its most common name.

February 3rd full moon is also known as the Snow Moon, Ice Moon, Hunger Moon, and Cleansing Moon. Native American tribes of the north and the east called it the snow moon as it use to be the time that the greatest amount of snowfall came. The name Hunger moon refers to the difficulty to gather food this time of year. The Celts called it the Moon of Ice.

The snow moon represents the coming of spring. It’s the time when the seeds start stirring to life under the cold ground. The farmers start planning crops for their gardens. The animals will start to feel their young in their bellies as they are readying for their spring births. The long sleepy winter is finally ending and the earth is in its early awakening to the longer days in the warmth of the sun.

Correspondences for the full snow Moon

Crystals: Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Jasper

Deitie: Aphrodite, Juno, Kwan Yin, Persephone and Mars.

Colors: blue purple and violet.

Herbs: hyssop, sage, myrrh and spikenard.

Flowers: Primrose

Your work on the full moon should focus on new beginnings of your dreams and goals for this year. It’s a night of purification.  Work to realize where you past mistakes may have been, forgive and love yourself, and plan for your future. Consider making a dream/vision board for tonight.  Find a blank piece of paper or cardboard then spend some time cutting pictures out of magazines representing your dreams/visions for your future.  Ask the Creator for blessings for all on this planet tonight.

Full moon blessings,
