February Full Moon – Feb 19th
This month’s Full Moon is a special Super Moon, which is when the Moon is closer to the Earth, so the Moon will look brighter, larger, and closer than an average Full Moon, and this will be the largest Super Full Moon of 2019.
This Full Moon is also accompanying a bright Star called Regulus in the constellation Leo the Lion. You can expect the sky to be pretty bright for a few nights.
This Full Moon has a few different ancient names actually. A very long time ago different cultures and people gave the Moons names by month and the changing seasons. During that time they followed the Lunar Month instead of the Solar Year.
February’s Full Moon is often called the Snow Moon and it has been known also as the Hunger Moon, the Storm Moon, and the Chaste Moon.
The Full Moon on the 19th occurs in the detailed sign of Virgo in the first degree, this can bring more awareness around the things that need more order in our lives. Something usually becomes exposed or is illuminated, which helps us get in touch with the things that we may have been neglecting or putting off, especially regarding our work, habits, services, health, and routines. We may receive some strong intuitive signs or messages from the Universe, and our feelings may come from a place of being frustrated or stuck.
During this particular Full Moon is the perfect time to work on manifestation. It also tends to give us the courage to speak up and say goodbye to negative situations and people who have been bringing us down. This Full Moon is a time to reevaluate and finally figure out what’s no longer working or is needed in our lives. It’s a time to release something, or someone perhaps. It’s when we let go and cleanse the space we’re in. This Full Moon being in the sign of Virgo, just magnifies its effects.
The Full Snow Moon will occur on Tuesday, February 19th, 2019 is in the sign of Virgo. Although our adrenaline is pumping during this time, the energy will eventually fade, but you in the meanwhile, can get new projects off the ground and once the energy has dropped you can maintain your motivation and not worry so much about initiating something.
The interesting part of this February Full Moon is how it is connecting with the other planets in the Cosmos. And the Full Moon in Virgo is making a rather nice “Trine” connection to Mars in Taurus and is close to electric thought provoking Uranus at the end of the sign of fiery Aries. This makes for a highly charged up Full Moon folks, and since the Full Moon already is an emotional time, we must be careful not to allow this energy to overwhelm us, as we can be more anxious and worried than usual during this time.
Mars recent move into the sign of Taurus is also connecting to this Full Moon. Looking at how the Zodiac Sign of Taurus acts when it’s angry or passionate about something (Mars Traits) helps us fully understand how it will affect us during this Full Moon. Occasionally, we could get angry and easily irritated. Some folks will reach a boiling point about a particular issue that may have been more easily handled before or at least tolerated. So our patience is wearing thin and some of us might need to take decisive action.
There’s a strong urge or desire to break free from anything that is restricting or limiting us, with Mars conjunct Uranus during this Full Moon. Even when it’s not an erratic Full Moon this connection is unpredictable and can be volatile, so watch out for others who get too pumped up and tend to lose their tempers!
Luckily, there are other Planetary connections being made to the Sun and Moon during this time that help keep our impulsive behavior more under control and that lowers the chances of upsetting events!
Often there comes a time when we need to take certain actions and be more proactive, especially in areas of our lives where we have held back or gotten lazy. With the outer-planet Uranus involved, there is a theme of destiny at work during this Full Moon, and it can put us under pressure to make some important changes.
During the Full Moon, you will be able to look at your life and quickly size up what is possible and more manageable, because you are more realistic about your schedule and limitations with it being in the sign of Virgo. There can be a reality check around what you are overdoing in certain areas of your life. But mental Mercury is, fortunately, helping us with insight to work on a more doable plan for the future. Plus our negotiating skills in most situations are on point, and that may give us a little more time. Mercury right now is in the sign of Pisces and with the Full Moon in Virgo negotiations are more possible.
The Full Moon in Virgo can bring more exciting opportunities that help you feel more alive and expressive. Whatever might have been confused or depressed in your life might just seem to come together and make sense during this cycle. It can allow you to have more restored faith in your current path and give you more confidence to attain your longer-term goals for the future.
With all these powerful influences at play it’s a great time to learn how to do Full Moon energy work, and for setting some intentions, as we should be working on letting go of what no longer works for us or is blocking our path to something better during the Full Moon

The NEW MOON occurs on Friday, December 7th, 2018, at 2:22 AM EST.
Early in the wee hours of the morning, the Moon in the sign of Sagittarius aligns with the Sun also in Sagittarius, and a NEW MOON occurs! This is an extremely powerful energy, that begs us to look at our future goals and plans, and to manifest what we truly want and desire. This is a time for fresh starts and new beginnings!
The New Moon is in the mutable fire sign of Sagittarius and this represents NEW BEGINNINGS. This is a time to focus on this sign and its traits, so we need to work on feeling being more optimistic, enthusiastic, adventurous, honest, outspoken, and independent! Think about how you can incorporate these qualities into your life!
With this New Moon wrapped in the sign of the Archer, Sagittarius, we should focus on reaching for goals that help increase our understanding and awareness, this is a courageous energy and we are being asked to think about how to expand our horizons, and gain some sort of confidence and even optimism from a broader perspective. It’s all too easy to get lost in the details of your everyday lives, but with this potent Sagittarius energy, we can also find small ways to move forward in our lives and also work at nurturing our faith, hope, and visions.
The Lesson of the New Moon
Something to watch out for is since we are getting a double dose of Sagittarian energy, with the Sun and Moon both being in this fiery sign, is we tend to think in a big way, so there’s a tendency to overdo our expectations through our actions. And with the New Moon involved in a tense connection to aggressive Mars and foggy Neptune, we need to check ourselves and not go over the top or become attached to doing something impractical. This is a creative time, but you may not be keeping it real, and illusions are all over the place! We are making headway even though we may not feel like it right now, as rewards will come from our bravery, and even as little or big as they may be, in about two weeks time after the Full Moon occurs will understand this more.

The New Moon comes together on Wednesday, November 7th, 2018
- 8:03 AM PT
- 9:03 AM MST
- 10:03 AM CST
- 11:03 AM EST
The New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio and this is when a new cycle begins. This is a good time to follow the themes and express the energies of the sign of Scorpio. This lunation starts off a cycle of New Beginnings in the fixed sign of Scorpio and is especially powerful due to the Sun and Moon both being in this deep, mysterious sign. It’s a time of personal growth and evolution for all of us, no matter what Zodiac Sign you think you are, and actually, we have all the Signs in the Zodiac in our personal “Astrology Birth Charts,” just in different places that affect different parts of our lives.
What Should You Focus On Now?
This is a time when we should be focused on some of the more positive traits of the sign of Scorpio – so things like passion, focus, resourcefulness, deeper emotional connections, mysterious behavior, sexuality, and perception are all part of what this New Moon energy is trying to teach us about, and some of the main themes in our lives currently have something to do with these themes in one way or another! So think about how you can use these qualities in your own life or if there’s a situation already underway in your life that connects you to one of those issues. It’s a time for healing these issues in one way or another and that means you have to be honest with yourself and acknowledge something is going on, first.
When a New Moon comes together in the sign of Scorpio it’s a good time to work on our self-control skills. So think about the things in your life that make you feel out of control, such as addictions (of all kinds) and debt, and work on letting go of any emotional burdens or wounds you are deeply holding on to. There’s also an opportunity under this New Moon cycle to figure out what’s missing in our lives but this means we can get involved in some sort of self-destructive behaviors, again seeing there is a problem is the first step towards healing.
Under this cycle, we can get rid of the negative energy in our lives be it material or spiritual. So during the New Moon in Scorpio, we can make some important changes in our own world. One of the lessons that Scorpio teaches all of us is about going deeper into the mysteries or unknowns of this life instead of always being content with what everyone else is saying or doing and discovering the truth, even if it tears us down, that only means it will be a time to rebuild once you have torn through the rough stuff. If we take our time getting to know the people in our lives and try to understand their reasoning, it can help deepen our feelings of intimacy, forgiveness, and give our relationships (of all kinds) a sense of meaning.
Scorpio energy also teaches us that being dedicated to one meaningful relationship or commitment can be so much more satisfying and fulfilling than spreading ourselves around. It’s all about quality over quantity! Use this New Moon cycle to focus on and develop one special relationship or project, this can help you find a sense of purpose and add some growth and depth to your lives.
Under a Scorpio transit especially a New Moon, we can release our fears of being confronted and let go of heavy emotional burdens or situations. Even if you are being taken or perhaps dragged out of your comfort zone, and into certain situations that are making you feel uncomfortable to work through, this can lead you towards some sort of psychological breakthrough and healing. Which can make your life and relationships better in the long run.
New Moon Transits
This New Moon is also harmonizing with spiritual Neptune and powerful Pluto, so our intuition and perceptions are stronger than usual. Even so, Jupiter and Uranus both are just about to shift Zodiac Signs as they go around the Zodiac Wheel, and it’s just common sense to watch for jumping into or out of something too hastily, in other words, don’t be impulsive as I have been mentioning and burn bridges and cause some kind of permanent damage until you really work through the issues you may be having. Allow this energy to flow and see how you feel on the other end of it first before making any major decisions or drawing conclusions.
Happy New Moon
How to Set New Moon Intentions
by Rubys Readings
The days following a New Moon phase are auspicious. The actual day of the New Moon the Balsamic or dark Moon period marks the beginning point when the heavens shift from dark to light. On the days following the New Moon magic is in the air and the inner life is awakened.
During the New Moon cycle, we should be asking the Universe for new beginnings, by planting some seeds of intention and getting in touch with our higher-self. It’s a good time to think about what you’re grateful and what you have and to work on manifesting what you’d like next to show up in your life next.
Setting Intentions under the New Moon
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe for New Beginnings. The intentions that are set during a New Moon Ritual will set you on the right path towards your desires. Have a conversation with the Universe (meaning your higher power, God, Source, Guides, Angels, etc.) and ask for the New Moon to open up a path towards your deepest desires, and ask to be led to your manifestations. Plant seeds of intentions with your mind and heart. In the simplest of terms, write your wishes down and most importantly feel them.
You might be asking how does one Set Intentions under the New Moon? First, you should set the mood and create the energy. So light some candles, burn some incense or sage, and play some calming meditative music. Get comfortable and simply write down your deepest desires, wishes or questions about your future and what you want next. Write down what you would like to manifest or create, and what kind of energy you are trying to bring into your life?
As you’re doing a ritual and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about.
- What are you choosing or what changes would you like to see in your life?
- What energy should you be calling in?
- How do you feel about what is happening in your life right now, what kind of energy do you want to create in your life during this New Moon?
Now Visualize and feel what you’ve written down. Close your eyes and take some nice long deep breaths, and enter into your heart (the space you feel the love from) Visualize yourself in the desire or dream you’re creating. For example, see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with that great Soulmate partner, or driving that new car. Keep it simple and see a particular goal being meet, see yourself feeling joyful and happy! See yourself manifesting what you would like to call in during the New Moon. Just don’t think about it, make sure and “FEEL IT” as if you were really experiencing what you’re visualizing.
The New Moon phase is the best time for planning and seeding your intentions. You’re going to need to be patient and wait for those seeds you have planted to grow, just like you would wait on a flower to sprout from a seedling and remember when a plant grows it needs sunlight. This is also true for us as we get our ideas together and make our visions known, it takes some time for our wishes or desires to surface into reality. The dark of the Moon or New Moon, is like the earth when you plant a flower it is dark, but once you ask for your dreams to come in…you are putting your Light on it and that is what it takes for it to grow, just like the Sun makes a flower grow, add some emotions to it and really feel what you are asking for and there is the water a flower would need to grow, see it’s all so symbolic for what we really are doing here.
Last but not least, you should work on being grateful what you already have on this planet, right in the here and now! Tell the Universe thank you and believe me once you start saying or writing down what you are grateful for, it won’t stop it will just keep coming to you. Gratitude is so popular because it works…it’s the key to manifestation.
