I always love the energy of the full moon – well … almost always. Sometimes it gets a bit intense, which is why I ask people that tune into moon energy to let me know, in advance … what to be mindful of. I’m one of those types of people that would rather have awareness ahead of time … than not … so … Here is some great info for this month’s FULL MOON by Melissa Corter – Enjoy – SDJ
February 19th Full Moon in Virgo
February’s Virgo moon may just be the boost you have been waiting for! This Full Moon brings the adventure, and invokes a sense of freedom highlighting success, romance, and cha cha cha changes. Do not let the mind tell you change is scary when you’ve got this powerful Moon cheering you on, as it sets the stage for courageous acts unfolding and leading you to victory. Think back to how you were feeling and what you were intending a few weeks ago, the energy here is a manifestation of those intentions. This is wonderful news for those who set goals and desires into motion with the energy of the New Year.
This Full Moon is about aligning the heart with personal power. Consciously choose to use your inner strength and gifts in services and actions that are weaved with integrity; and pull back from reacting to others who may not have the same morals. This is a time of spirit emerging to reveal deeper truths; not all of them are glamourous, yet even in those experiences live golden opportunities for wisdom to be gained.
The Moon represents the subconscious minds and influences certain aspects of our being; especially intimate relationships, home life, and personal issues within these areas and others. The energy of this Moon connects to these matters along with the Virgo influence of independence, ambition, success, power and fame. Balance is key in these areas; there is nothing wrong with them as they stand, examine the energy behind them for yourself to decide where your own personal truth is being called into light. The Moon also has a way of revealing the shadow, nothing to be feared, just another layer of information and intuitive guidance to learn and heal from.
Full Snow Moon: February- Traditionally, the Moon we see in February is called the Snow Moon because usually the heaviest snows fall in February. This name dates back to the Native Americans during Colonial times when the Moons were a way of tracking the seasons. And the Native Americans were right. On average, February is the USA’s snowiest month, according to data from the National Weather Service. (Farmer’s Almanac)
Full Moon Self Care for February:
- Physical- Virgo is an Earth sign, physical activity is excellent during this Moon phase. It also places emphasis on the intestines and the nervous system.
- Emotional- During this Moon, work on the inner or outer critic, being mindful of expression. Shifting from the critical voice to conscientious.
- Spiritually- Allow the analytical mind to work with the intuitive aspect of your being. Meditation can help bridge them both together.
“Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. At all counts, it forms an unconscious snag, thwarting our most well-meant intentions.”
Tips for The February 2019 Full Moon in Libra:
Dedicate your energy to the goals and dreams you set in motion over the last few weeks. This Moon is supportive of those endeavors and even holds potential for you to go beyond and surprise yourself with how much you can achieve with discipline and intention. Use meditation and deep breathing to calm the mind or any doubts that can arise as you step into the energy of your desires. You are more capable than you allow yourself to recognize; this Moon can pull the veil back to witness this capacity within you.
Believe in experiences even if you have never had any prior evidence of their unfolding. Moons are magical times of divulging the unknown, hidden talents, intuitive impulses and the innate mystic that resides in your bones. Let this become new, allow yourself to acclimate to possibility. Take a step forward to honor yourself and personal intentions; you’ll then be met with support and profound guidance.

Send them love as they are also shining a light on themselves and may be extra sensitive during this time. The next full moon is March 20th in the sign of Libra and is known as the Full Worm Moon.
