Title: January - Wolf Moon or Old Moon
Post by: dragonspring on January 30, 2010, 08:20:32 PM
Wolf Moon is the first full moon in January.  Occurring in the deep cold of winter, this is the time when the wolves howled closest to our ancestor’s homes.  The eerie howl of the wolf might bring forth the instinct to protect our family making this a good time for protection work.  Since wolves lives in family units or packs, this might also be a good time to strengthen ties with our loved ones.

This is the time when some animals begin to hibernate.  The weather may also keep us closer to home.  It is a time for burrowing in and introspection. As the Wheel turns towards Imbolc, this is a time for planning and looking forward and also a time for purification.
