It’s January and time for the first full moon of the new year, the Wolf Moon. The Full Moon itself offers powerful energy for rituals of prophecy, divination, and protection. Any spell-work that requires extra energy, such as finding a new job or healing serious conditions, is best begun during the full moon. Also for love, gaining sacred knowledge, legal matters, attracting money and prophetic dreams.
The Native Americans named this moon the Wolf Moon because during the long dark nights the wolves were hungry and would often howl outside the lodges of the people. Other names for this full moon include the Cold Moon, Winter Moon (Colonial), Holiday Moon (China), Quiet Moon (Celtic), Ice Moon (neo-Pagan), Disting Moon, Moon of Little Winter and the Chaste Moon.
