The month of February
The month February, originally “Februarius” was named after the Latin term “februum”, which means purification, via the purification ritual Februa held on February 15 (full moon) in the old lunar Roman calendar. January and February were the last two months to be added to the Roman calendar, since the Romans originally considered winter a monthless period.
February is known in other Languages as:
Februar – Danish
Febrero – Spanish
Février – French
A stone of wisdom, February’s amethyst draws forth one’s intuition in order to bring clarity to emotions, feelings, and values. Wear amethyst to ward off guilt and fear allowing calm to break through.
This flower signifies watchfulness, loyalty, and faithfulness. Give a violet to someone to let them know you’ll always be there for them. The other February flower is the primrose, which lets someone know you can’t live without them.
