What February's full moon in Virgo means for your sign

It's going to be a potent one, astrologers say.

Nicknamed the Snow Moon, the final full moon of winter and astrological year is about to rise. February's full moon is a "micromoon", which occurs when the moon is full at its farthest point from Earth, per EarthSky. That means that it will appear a bit smaller than usual.

In terms of astrology, this lunation falls in the sign of Virgo, encouraging us to pay attention to the tiniest details in any given situation.

How can you see February 2024’s full moon?

February's full moon rises on Feb. 24 at 7:30 AM ET, and will appear full for three days.

What is the astrological meaning of February 2024’s full moon?

Full moons are a time of reflection and relaxation within astrology. Tarot reader and author Kerry Ward tells, “Full moons are a potent representation of completion and fullness. The lunar vibes influence you to finish things up, draw conclusions, review and reflect on events, and reward yourself for jobs well done.” 

Each full moon, however, takes on the specific flavor of what's occurring — and the upcoming full moon is set to be a potent one.

The Moon aspects communicative Mercury, expansive Jupiter, and austere Saturn, creating a tug on our heartfelt sentiments. This may leave us feeling a bit confused about which path to take, especially with both Mercury and Saturn in Pisces opposing the Virgo Moon. These conflicting emotions may also leave us feeling lonely and yearning for security. Jupiter, currently in Taurus, is only going to exacerbate these feelings.

Emotions may shift by evening when loving planet Venus, in the sign Aquarius, connects with lucky Jupiter, who is currently in Taurus. This alignment may bring emotional relief and helps us recognize the love and support around us.
