February Full Moon
The full moon in February is known by many as The Quickening Moon. Just like Imbolc, this full moon is a celebration to mark the coming of spring. The days are getting longer and longer and so we focus on new beginnings. Now is the time to begin planting seeds that we will be sowing in the next few months.
The element for this full moon is fire making purification rituals a great way to make way for new beginnings. This is an opportunity to acknowledge the lessons you have learned so far and to let go of your mistakes, forgive yourself and move on. Once you’ve accomplished this you can now move on to planning your future.
Traditional colours for this moon are deep purple and violet. As such, it is a great idea to incorporate amethyst in your spells and rituals.
Burn a firey incense for cleansing.
A simple way to acknowledge your lessons is to write them down either in you journal or BOS. I recommend afterward performing a banishing ritual. See my posts for Cleansing.
You can include in your ritual something like this:
The quickening moon shines full above
now is the time to plant seeds and love
under this full moon, we’ll light the fire
to purify all that is not our desire
let go of the past, we must forgive
we need to heal so we can live
in the healthy way Spirit meant is to be
so the positive in the world is what we see.
