Quickening Moon

Did you see the stunning moon last night? February’s Full Moon is called the Quickening Moon, for the term that is used when a pregnant mother first feels the movement of her baby in her belly. It’s that time of year when our dreams for the coming season start to emerge and take on a life of their own.

It’s also the time of year when we feel crazy because we are dying to push through the frozen ground and sprout into the light of spring, but we still need to germinate fully in the dark moist soil.

Oh, I am so looking forward to spring this year!
