Snow Moon

February is the second month of the year, in the Northern hemisphere, it is traditionally one of the coldest months, snow, ice, and freezing rain, are all associated with it. It is also a time when nights are longer, and the morning sunrise is late in appearing. Going home and going to work usually take place in the dark. The New Moon in February is named the Snow Moon, because it occurs in such a snowy cold month. The number of the month is the number 2, and in Angel numbers it means … “to keep the faith.”

For such a dark and cold month has one of the brightest and enjoyable celebrations, Valentine’s Day, February 14th, the day when we celebrate love!

Traditionally the love we express is of our partner, and we do it with flowers, chocolates, dinner, and other gifts that mark the special relationship and happiness we feel for that “special someone.”

Perhaps the most special thing we can offer a special person in our lives is simply the words “I love you” said with a genuineness that tells the  person you have no doubts and are not holding anything back.

Sometimes adding something to those simple words somehow magnifies the words, something you share with the other person that is unique to you two alone. When I was very small and leaning my numbers, it seemed like the even numbers 2, 4, 6, and 8 were special, they were not “odd” numbers. When said together, the numbers seemed to be the biggest number in the universe. When I would tell my parents, I loved them, I would add the numbers to the words so they received “I love you, 2, 4, 6, 8.”

When we tell someone, we love them, we love everything about them, even the things that are not so lovable. Romantic Love, helps us accept and make allowances for things we see in another that are annoying and less than perfect. The person receiving the love is healed by that acceptance and love because even if they are not aware something about them is not lovable, they find acceptance and caring attention.

It may not be romantic love, and you may not give special gifts to everyone on February 14th, but there are many other things in life we can be thankful for and say “I love you” to. Pets and animals, we share our lives with. Tell your cat or dog that you love them. Other relatives who are part of our lives, tell them also.

If we are shy about doing saying the words, doing something that shows caring will help communicate our love.

Things that enrich our lives even if for a moment should be recognized. Yesterday as I was getting the car out of the garage, a small bird started singing in the hedge. At this time of year, the hedge is brown and leafless, it looks dead, the sky was cloudy and dark still, but the bird had made it a perch to sing its song and I was grateful for it. When I arrived back from doing my errands, he was still there, well, I like to think it was the same small bird, but the song was just as enjoyable and I was equally grateful.

Even our own thoughts are affected by our thoughts of Love. When we think of manifesting things, positive, loving thoughts hold the highest vibrational energy and bring with them positive results, when there is a lot of negativity and pessimism around us, such as at work, positive loving thinking helps us and shields us against taking in those thoughts and making them our own and then giving those thoughts to others.

Now the trick is to keep the thoughts and the way we think about love and gratitude on February 14th with us all year, every year, making February 14th each February and affirmation. Tell your partner, your pets, relatives, even the little bird singing in the hedge that you love and appreciate them regularly throughout the year. And think positively about your life and you will find yourself shielded against dark thoughts and pessimism.
