As February’s Full Moon takes place in the third Decan of Leo, it makes it a Leo or Sagittarius Full Moon by modern Decan.
This means the planetary influences involve the Sun as the ruler for Leo and Jupiter as the ruler for Sagittarius.
Thus, this Full Moon will be about how you express your creativity and playfulness, even in the limits of the winter period.
Therefore, it is a good time of the year to exhibit any creative works you might be waiting for display and share.
The Snow Moon also energises you to feel in touch with your sense of humour and your desire to stand out and perform, even if you are naturally introverted.
Given the energy occurring is so deep, at 20 degrees into Leo, you will want to connect with your inner child and let him or her out to play, to help you laugh and dance.
February’s Moon can be an ideal Full Moon to break out the board games, enjoy a sport with friends, go on a fun date with someone new or the love of your life.
Essentially, February’s Snow Moon gives you full licence to enjoy a full sense of freedom and indulge in your hedonistic impulses, in a bid to try to let go of your day-to-day stresses.
According to astrologers, February’s Full Moon’s has the potential to emotionally elevate you.
With the Decan involving Sagittarius, it can be a good Full Moon to travel, especially if you choose a warm, inviting, and playful destination.
If you reside in a cold part of the world, with shorter days, this Snow Moon is a good opportunity to do something to connect with and express positive energy.
For instance, it is an opportune time to throw a party, buy yourself an indulgent gift, or do something playful with someone young or young at heart.
