Tonight is the Quickening Moon, the perfect time for spells and Esbat celebrations!
February’s moon name alludes to the plants beginning to grow underground and the unborn animals stirring in the womb. February is the month of Aquarius and Pisces, so the colours aqua, blue and purple are often used on altars, as are the corresponding stones: aquamarine and amethyst. February is a time for new beginnings, planning and ideas. Imbolc magic could also be cast tonight.
Use rose quartz or garnet in your spells for romance or Valentine’s Day plans. Aphrodite and Venus can be called on at this time of year. You might use roses, hearts, Valentine’s candy or the colors pink and red in your spell tonight. Candle magic is a wise choice; it works quickly and fire is related to passion. A 7-Day candle spell for love or lust could be done tonight and every night for the next week, culminating on Valentine’s Day.
Just some things to think about while you stare up at the night sky.
