Merry Meet !
Here is your weekly update about exciting happenings in both the forum and the witchy world at large this week:
Mark your calendars so you don’t miss out on these one-day events!
[ [ Moon Phase : Full Moon ] ]
This week, the night skies will be blessed with a full moon on Wednesday, February 16th . The exact time of peak illumination will depend on your location.
The full moon of February is called the Full Snow Moon . Like gentle snowflakes falling from the sky, this moon is a time of cleansing and purification
The qualities of this moon are based not only on the snow this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, but also from the lingering energy of the recent Sabbat Imbolc and the God Februus- the Roman deity of purification for whom which February is named after
Explore a special moon ritual and learn more about this moon on the Spells8 Full Snow Moon Ritual Page.
While each moon has its own unique qualities, every full moon is a celebrated time where the energy of the moon is at its most powerful. Now is a wonderful time to charge, cleanse, and absorb the potent energies of the moon.
For additional full moon inspiration, visit What to Do During the Full Moon
You can find the current moon phase for your location as well as a daily lunar spell on the Spells8 Lunar Spell Page
