EarthSky News: February full moon – Snow Moon – near Regulus February 16

February full moon, or Snow Moon
The moon reaches the crest of its full phase every 29.5 days. So nearly every month has a full moon (although sometimes February lacks one, as it did in 2018). The moon is full on February 16, 2022 at 16:56 UTC (11:56 a.m. EST). Full moon is a whole-Earth event. So that clock time is when the moon will be 100% lit, not when you can expect to see the full moon.

Inner Journey:


“Our inability to see beauty doesn’t suggest in the slightest that beauty is not there. Rather, it suggests that we are not looking carefully enough or with broad enough perspective to see the beauty.”
— Rabbi Harold Kushner

Who are you? You can gaze at your reflection in a mirror but you’re not likely to see your true likeness. You are beautiful, unique, perfect. Do you see that?

The world needs you to see how whole and complete you are — now. Can you begin to own your divinity? The world needs you to know who you really are so you can be the mirror for others.

“The sun shines not on us but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing.”
— John Muir


A Note from the Universe

Do you know what happens in time and space just before something really incredible happens? Something mind-blowing? Just before a really HUGE dream comes true?

Do you?

Absolutely nothing.

At least not in the physical world.

So if, perchance, it appears that absolutely nothing is happening in your life right now… consider it a sign.

All the best,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
February 16, 2022

“When we do the best that we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another.”

-Helen Keller (1914)

Excellence is difficult to measure. In the Olympics there is a judging system of points and scores to compare the athlete’s performances. But when it comes to our day to day lives, excellence for each one of us is doing the best that we can do. We know when we’re slacking off. We know when we can do better. We’re the only ones who can make that judgment accurately. And when we do strive for excellence, when we put ourselves out there and really give it our all, we know it, we can feel it.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Pope

Speak and behave respectably and dispel all manner of potential difficulties and obstacles. You don’t have to fake any feelings or opinions you don’t really have. Simply act with decorum and tact, and then take your place on a somewhat bigger stage. Respectability is what will keep things under control and keep it all moving forward. Do as much as you can today and feel gratified.
