Snow Moon-Setting Intention

As we near the end of February, we get to feel the power of the next full moon. First, can you believe we are now 2 months into 2021? Second, what would you like to create for yourself for the next month and year of your life?

Full moons are the ideal time to set your intentions.  Setting daily intentions I find to be a good practice as well.  Setting them during a full moon gives an extra boost.  While setting intentions make sure to focus and know whats meant for you will be yours.

Setting Intentions

For myself, I set my intentions in the full moon in December to drive cross county and work with new boutiques along the way (see here).  I was feeling confident and focused that this trip was meant for me.  It was a rather quick decision which didn’t give me much time to overthink.  However, this decision did come with it’s share of anxiety.  Besides my regular meditation, yoga, cooking and bike rides to keep me mindful I also used the power of gemstones.  I made myself a necklace of Amethyst and Aventurine. These 2 gemstones are ideal for their calming and protective properties.  For me, in order to focus I need to be calm first and these gems worn in a necklace close to my heart seem to have done the trick!

This Full Moon, also known as the Snow Moon arrives on February 27th at 8:17am.  This full moon holds an important place for me.  In the fall of 2020 I decided I wanted to become a better skier.  With this in mind I started to set my intentions on snow, skiing, driving and all things involved with spending more time on the mountains.  I have now been in Colorado living that vision.  During Full Moons, New Moons and in my Yoga and meditations I set this intention.  I found gemstones that gave me peace and strength outside of my comfort zone.

The Snow moon is also a time for you to organize and sort through the burdens of your life that you have been sweeping under the rug. It is a time to tackle the things that you have been avoiding.   This could mean that you are about to tackle something physical, emotional, or even spiritual.

Focused on Creation

Living outside of my comfort zone, I decided to create a cast line of jewelry.  Ideas had swirled in my head for years   however I had never set my intentions to make this a reality.  This fall I did that as well and all was running smoothly.  After months of working with Erin my ideas finally became solid pieces of silver.  The sample pieces were shipped to Erin.  She took photos of the finished samples and shipped them off to me in Colorado.

Two weeks later those pieces are lost somewhere in Memphis and I am waiting patiently for them to be recovered and to finally have these 1st pieces in hand.  You can pre-order the pieces here on our website

On this Snow Moon I will still be in the mountains.  I will set my intentions for the next days and weeks to come.  One being that the Limitless samples show up soon! I am so excited to share these with you and will set my intentions with all positive thoughts

These are the gemstones I will surround myself with on this Snow Moon.

Moonstone: This is the number one moon crystal. It is the staple crystal for all your lunar practices. Moonstone aligns strongest with the Full Moon. Its bright and luminous qualities show you the way ahead. It is a symbol of the third eye.  It is said to balance yin/yang.   Allows people to feel more comfortable with their gentler side.

Gemstone Cleansing Ritual Idea:

Use this cleansing Ritual with your gemstone jewelry as well as with the loose stones you have.

It is ideal to gather your Moon Crystals even before the Full Moon happens so that you can properly prepare to cleanse them beforehand. After they are cleansed, you will charge them under the Full Moon and then program them with your intention. By doing so, the stones are supercharged to help you on your mission throughout the lunar month. Do this with your moon crystal balls, shapes, and jewelry.

I hope you are enjoying this season and are able to set your intentions to best suit your life.
