February Full Moon | Princess of Cups
The full moon of February is known by various names – Snow Moon, Wolf Moon and Hunger Moon (Northern Hemisphere) and Grain Moon, Sturgeon Moon, Red Moon, Wyrt Moon, Corn Moon, Dog Moon and Barley Moon if you live in the Southern Hemisphere.
I’m in the Northern Hemisphere and Wolves are a bit thin on the ground here in Scotland. I don’t have any snow (at the moment) and since I’m in the throes of trying to cut down on the amount that I’m eating, I thought I’d plump for the Hunger Moon!
The spread is just a one-carder gem and only uses the 16 court cards as my deck 🙂
Who helps me successfully handle my hunger pangs from now until the next full moon?
The answer comes in the form of the Druidcraft Tarot’s Princess of Cups.
In this deck, the usual Page is replaced with a Princess, but she serves the same role.
How she helps me with my hunger pangs, purely from the image:
1 She has her eyes closed – don’t drool over gorgeous food when it’s a fast day.
2 She holds a cup – drink plenty of fluids and make them as interesting as possible.
3 She’s outdoors – get outside whenever I feel hungry.
4 I like her clothes – focus on treating myself to a new item of clothing when I am less portly. Honestly, just a few inches off my bosom and belly would be GREAT.
4 Meditation. And not involving the glories of the co-op’s almond croissants in any way, shape or form …
So much for how she looks, but what might her Tarot meaning contributes to my successful wrangling of my hunger?
Begin a relationship. Well, Tom Hiddleston doesn’t know that I exist. YET. So I prefer to flip this to mean that I should fall in love with SOMETHING. Maybe by focussing my attentions elsewhere, I won’t be too conscious of feeling hungry. You know what it’s like when you fall in luff – you can happily exist on salad, even in the cold and damp 🙂
The Princess of Cups is also a creative little soul – get the paints out and refocus. But don’t paint pictures of food …
How else can the Princess of Cups help me with my hunger pangs? What do you think?
