February's Full Moon is often called the “Snow Moon" in folklore traditions throughout the Northern Hemisphere because of the heavy snowfalls during this time.
A Supermoon is a Full moon that occurs when the moon is at its closest point to Earth in its monthly cycle around the Earth. This is the second of THREE Supermoons in a row, but this one will appear significantly larger than the upcoming March Supermoon. You will notice you have an unusually high number of projects, promises and obligations around this time. Time will feel like it’s running out - but that is merely an illusion.
The Full Moon is not only the most magickally potent and powerful time of the month, but it is also the most physically stimulating. As the moon affects the ocean tides, so too does it affect our bodies. If you pay close attention to your body, you may have noticed that on the mornings leading up to the full moon and a couple of days thereafter, you may feel extra swollen or puffy. These are the days of baggy shirts, pants with looser waistbands, undereye concealer and perhaps an inclination to wear less rings on your fingers.
Spells are best performed for 3-12 consecutive days. This is what leads to powerful, lasting and measurable results. If you have been performing spellwork leading up to the Full Moon, consider the night of the Full Moon the climax of your ritual.
The brightly moonlit evening of the February Snow Supermoon reminds us to be kind to all living creatures and to nurture the Earth with greater empathy. You will notice an increased sensitivity to your surroundings (light, scent, vibration) and your compassion for the world around you will grow. Now is the perfect time to graciously stand up for what you believe in.
This Virgo Supermoon carries a very special energy for healing all emotional wounds, gaining clarity and attaining worldly justice. Some will crave shelter from the horrors of the world, while others will finally embrace their inner Warrior.
The Sacred Full Moon Ritual will ease your nerves and will align you with your highest good. This magickally potent moment of the moon cycle is ideal for smudging your home with Juniper to welcome happiness, Rosemary to protect your family, Lavender to bless and Roses to awaken the love within. The Old World Floral Smudge bundles (comes in two sizes) come with all the mentioned herbs and are ideal for Full Moon rituals and contain a seasonal variety of herbs and flowers to purify, bless, bring love & protect.
The Full Moon is the night that gives any spell the extra boost into manifestation. The Full Moon is best used to draw something into you life, such as love, financial prosperity or self-development.
If, however, you are choosing not to perform any magick on the night of the Full Moon, simply sitting under the moon rays and energetically absorbing the magnetism will reawaken and enliven your spirit. In case you're not prepared for to do the ritual this upcoming Full Moon, your next chance will be on the Spring Equinox Full Moon of March 20th!
I particularly enjoy Banishing Rituals during this time. Not because I necessarily believe there is more to banish, but because I notice it brings an immediately sense of clarity. In the days to follow, life realigns itself back to the correct path. People with ill intentions leave, experiences that are not for my highest good seem to dissipate and overall stability and power return in their full force.
If you’re wanting to perform the Banishing Ritual, I advise you to do so during the Dark Moon between evening of March 5th and late morning of March 6th. If possible, add 1/2-1 teaspoon of Agrimony Powder to your bath following the ritual.
For the Banishing Ritual statement, I use the following wording - feel free to use it as well!
“I now banish and permanently remove those with ill intentions from my life. Those who bring me sorrow or stress are now gently redirected away from me. I now banish and permanently remove all draining residual energies and entities that are around my energy field. Toxic ideas and beliefs that I have inherited are now in the past. I clear the path for my beautiful future.”
The cold days of Winter will soon be a fading memory, as Spring awakens in 28 days!
Love & Magick,
What happened to you in 2007? Think back. Not the little details — though they may be relevant as well, but the overlying theme. Did you get a new job you loved? Did you create a deeper bond with a parental figure? Did you leave behind your small town and move to a new country? Did you lose a close friend or coworker?
Today a new Lunar Year begins in the sign of the Boar (Pig), in the element of the of Earth - which is considered a female Boar year. After the very serious year of the Dog (2018), the female Boar bring great comfort and a deeper sense of home. Comfortable surroundings, delicious food and overall contentment in life will be the main themes of the year. For most, this will be a very relaxing year.
Take a deep breath, put your feet on the bare Earth and just be.
Be careful with your money this year. The Boar loves luxury and tends to overspend. A couple of gifts to yourself are in order, but be careful with investments and financial dealings. The energy of the Boar can be quite naive when it comes to money. Similarly, this is not the year to attempt big career transitions. Plan this year, move forward in 2020 - the year of the Rat. This year focus on health, home and the environment. This energy will not return until 2028, use this year wisely to care for body, your family and Mother Earth.
What You Can Expect In The Year Of The Boar
The Chinese New Year calendar differs from ours, as it is based on the moon after the Winter Solstice. If you were born in January or February, please review this chart for the exact day of the Chinese New Year in the year you were born.
Phoenix/Rooster (1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017): The Phoenix is not compatible with the energies of the Boar year, as Phoenix prefers rapid movement and productivity. The Boar is not hard worker like you, dear Phoenix. Any extra work on your part may not even be noticed by your boss. Expect some minor setbacks in terms of career or promotions. This is the time to be conservative with funds. Your luck will improve over the summer, as more fire energy will align productivity with your inner fire-breathing Phoenix.
Dog (1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006, 2018): A very prosperous and comfortable year, especially for those born in 1958! The Dog and the Boar are friendly energies that work in harmony to bring about a peaceful year. Family and home life will be blissful, especially in the autumn. Enjoy this year, work on your health and make sure to spend extra time in nature.
Boar/Pig (1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007): You made it through a full 12 year cycle and are now back in your home sign of Boar! If you're turning 60 this year, expect BIG life transitions that will both change and improve your world. You didn't think life remained static, did you? If an aspect of the Boar's life is not firmly grounded and secure, expect a brief life-earthquake that will knock down parts of Boar's life that are not for their highest good. The Boar may choose to leave their partner (or vice versa) or the Boar may go down a new unexpected career path. Alternatively, the Boar may simply transition into an entirely new social circle. Happy (yet sometimes Falling Tower style) transitions are at every corner. This is an excellent year for you to buy a home, have a child and travel to distant places around the world. As long as you're not remaining static, you will have a very good year. The only month that may not be to your liking is May.
Rat (1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008): Expect a comfortable year, but this is not a year of achievement. Spend your time reading, learning and planning your big goals and desires. This is not your year to begin new ventures, but it is the ideal time to complete all necessary research and strategic planning before your year of 2020! Whether you are planning a year long trip around the world or are dreaming of opening your own business, wait until spring of 2020 launch into action. In terms of finances, 2018 was certainly unpleasant for you. This year you will be able to recoup your losses.
Ox (1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009): The lively energy of the joyful Boar is a bit too much for you to handle. You're a hard worker that prefers predictability and stability. Boar is lazy and prefers fun over stability. The good news is this fun, easy-going energy makes people around you much kinder and easier to get along with. New contacts and helpful people will be coming out of the woodwork for you. This includes business associates and kind supervisors. Autumn will be your luckiest season.
Tiger (1950, 1962, 1974, 1986, 1998, 2010): Tiger and Boar are very good friends. Expect very interesting (borderline bizarre) and pleasant serendipities. As long as you do not overspend or overextend yourself, this will be a very good year. Often travel is foreseen and good business opportunities. Watch your waistline, as this year has the tendency to make Tigers gain weight. Too many tasty dinners!
Hare/Rabbit (1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011): Boar and Hare are very good friends, with similar energies and interests. As long as Hare keeps keeps their business and career advancement expectations low, they will have a good year. Delicious meals, travel, comfortable home and close family life. A great year to get married, have a child or take up a new hobby.
Dragon (1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012): Although this is a weak year for finances and career advancements, the Dragon will have a lively year of travel and joyous social occasions. The year of the Dog (2018) was challenging for you, so you will finally be able to take a deep breath and relax. The worst is now behind you. Just make sure to put your credit cards away, as Boar energy has poor money habits and can drive people into unneeded debt.
Serpent/Snake (1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013): The snake is the opposite of the Boar and will spend a great deal of the year feeling annoyed about with financially irresponsible people. Money will be taken out of the Snakes hands (tail? mouth?) by just about everyone around them. Snakes should not invest in anything this year, as they are a big, bright red target for swindlers. Snakes should try to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
Horse (1942, 1954, 1966, 1978, 1990, 2002, 2014): Horse and Pig are great friends. People born in these two sings make great lovers. Those enticing lovers may make the Horse overspend, as Boar energy loves luxuries they can't afford. Difficulties with coworkers are possible, as are unpredictable work conditions. The Boar energy doesn't have the same work ethic as the work-loving Horse. Luck comes to the Horse in autumn 2019.
Sheep/Ram/Goat (1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015): After 3 unpleasant years, now is the Sheep's time to rejoice in the end of their struggles! This will be a very lucky year for the Sheep, especially in terms of career and business advancements. The Boar is very good friends with the Sheep and makes sure the dear Sheep is taken care of. Excellent year to get married.
Monkey (1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016): A great year for Monkey, full of career advancements or an improvement in residence. Plans will come to fruition a great deal slower than anticipated, as Boar is not a go-getter like the Monkey. But the Monkey shouldn't get discouraged, even if they feel their goals are moving at a Boar's pace, they are still on the right path. This year will be significantly better than the last 3 and will radically improve your life for the next 10 years.
Wishing you a prosperous, joyous and nourishing year!
Love & Magick,
Keep in mind...
Astrological events are similar to acts of weather. Some people choose to dance in the wind and the rain. Others stay indoors. Your reaction, your mental attitude and your choice of thoughts will create your own experience and outcome.
