February is going to be a month of a lot of change and changing my future for the better. I’m going to make sure that I am keeping a journal and be mindful of my reactions to things. I’m excited and scared for this change, because it is definitely going to affect the rest of my life.

If anyone thought the January Wolf/Cold Moon sounded fierce- well, here comes February with the Death/Hunger Moon! :scream: :full_moon: It sounds pretty hardcore, but it’s a great time for a fresh start- just like the tarot card Death marks new beginnings.

This is great information- thanks for sharing, @Missa! :heart:

Agreed! Lots of interesting symbolism around this time of the year! According to Almanac.com those names originate from the fact that food was hard to come by at this time.

I also found this interesting article about the name Death Moon (originally used for the month of March) that saw the infamous death of Emperor Julius Caesar (assassinated by conspiring senators). :classical_building:

That’s fascinating that the Julian calendar set March 1st as the New Year! Different from the other calendars I know- the Gregorian calender starts a new year on January 1st, the Wheel of the Year celebrates on Samhain (in Autumn), and the Lunar calendar has a new year in February :spiral_calendar:

It makes me realize just how much β€œcalendars” and β€œtime” are human concepts! :mantelpiece_clock: Yet it seems like most calendars can be traced back to tracking the phases of the moon :first_quarter_moon:

Really interesting to learn about! :star_struck: :open_book:
