Moon of Ice

(Photo by Robin. 2006)

Tonight brings us February’s full moon. In the Celtic traditions, it is known as the Moon of Ice. Other names for February’s full moon include Storm Moon (English Medieval), Snow Moon (NeoPagan), Budding Moon (Chinese), and Trapper’s Moon (American Colonial).

There’s a storm on the way in my part of the world, bringing with it snow and ice.

February’s full moon will live up to its name.

The plum tree, dwindling, contains less of the spring; But the garden is wider, and holds more of the moon. ~ Zen saying
