Wolf Full Moon

Full Wolf Moon

Amid the cold and deep snows of midwinter, the howling of wolves could be heard in the cold winter nights outside Indian villages. Thus, the name for January’s full moon, the Full Wolf Moon.

Because wolves often hunt at night, their howling has become associated with nightfall and particularly, the moon. However the centuries-old notion of wolves howling at the full moon is known to be more folklore than fact.

Because January’s full moon was usually the first full moon after Christmas, some cultures referred to it as the Moon After Yule. Others have sometimes referred to January’s full moon as the Full Snow Moon, but most Native American tribes applied that name to the next full moon.

Moon in Leo — Tuesday through Thursday, January 6th through 8th, 2015
the insects have carved careful letters of their language
on these sticks under the bark,
careful arcs and curves.
i sink into the earth
inarticulate and wild for want of understanding this script.
i know it contains answers
to every question.

Lunar News – January 12, 2015
Libra Moon in Libra – Monday and Tuesday (January 12th and 13th)
Waning Half Moon in Libra – Tuesday (January 13th)
When the Moon’s in Libra the beauty way calls us to balance our lives and loves. The mood is sociable, friendly, open, diplomatic, romantic, curious, indecisive, and aesthetic. It’s time to pursue social justice and negotiate as equals, time to beautify our world and nurture relationships.
One born under a Libra Moon is a natural peacemaker. She sees all sides of a problem and can lead the way beyond controversy to a shared perspective. She values fairness, aesthetics, and peaceful surroundings. Her challenges are to know her own mind, to handle conflict smoothly, and to balance relationship with purposeful work.

Sun in Aquarius, New Moon in Aquarius

Monday, January 19th & Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

Share with community. Fixed Air Aquarius calls us to philosophize, and then take our philosophy into social, political, and cultural action. We add common sense. Weave a circle of allies with mutual awareness, weave the circle of love.

Heather Roan Robbins @ Mother Tongue Ink 2014, excerpted from We’Moon 2015 p. 12

Aquarius Sun and Moon

The January 20 moon is new at 13:14 UTC. We will have six supermoons in 2015. What, you say? Supermoon? But the moon isn’t anywhere near full on this date! That’s right. This isn’t a full supermoon. Rather, it’s a new supermoon.

The New Moon is a time of new beginnings, hope, faith and optimism. It is important night energy wise as it sets the pace for the entire lunar cycle.

The Aquarius New Moon brings a fresh energy into all social situations. Connections to Mercury and Venus add a sweet, friendly quality that will help you get to know someone new better, or provide meaningful support to a friend.

When the sun and the moon are on the same side of earth the moon is in the “New Moon” phase. During this phase the moon is invisible because the side of the moon we are seeing is not being illuminated by the sun. The New Moon is also called the Seed Moon. It is a time of sprouting and new beginnings. The moon phases can affect our mind, body and emotions in the following ways:

  • Body- We tend to sleep less during the new moon phase and rise early. Our appetite tends to increase and we tend to experience spurts of energy.
  • Mind- This is a time we usually experience sudden insights and develop new ideas. It is a great time to be creative and participate in writing, painting or anything else that allows the mind to be inspired.
  • Emotions- During this time it is common to feel shy and experience sensitive feelings. It is a good time to stay away from crowds and to keep the focus on ourselves.

The new moon brings about a time of calmness and balance, while also bringing energy and acceptance that anything can be accomplished. Use this time to set seeds of intentions for the following moon cycle and love watching what manifests throughout the month.

It is important to pull our energy inward, to be the brightest lights we can, to show the greatest love we can. We hope the light we shine will catch others alight.

On the evening of the New Moon fill a glass with pure clean water. Hold your filled glass and take a moment to stand before any sacred space that you have set up or is special to you and breathe into your center – that deep internal place that is the source of your intent and where all change is possible. Internalize the knowing that All Water is One Water, with the power to cleanse and purify, to wash away the dust of all that was. Know that water always seeks to flow and in so doing erodes away all the blocks and obstacles that hinder its progress.

Fill yourself with all the thoughts of change that help this world to be better in all ways. Bring up all the ways that you can help to foster and create that change, not only within but also in your daily life to the world around you. Allow those intentions and energy to flow into the water that you hold.

Add to its power by singing, drumming or raising energy in your own unique way. Allow your energy to infuse the remaining water within your glass while deeply knowing that all water is connected. Remember that all water is one water, and that the water of our bodies is the same as the sea and the rain and the river. The energy of water flows and returns to you like a great tide, the waves of true and undeniable change that begins with your own personal divine source.

Drink some of the water in your glass and allow the energy to infuse all parts of your inner self, knowing that you raising your vibration to a higher level.

As this year goes by and you find the need to do something important, to hold for the greater good, to take a stand, or to feel empowered in your truth, remember the power of the water within you. The water in our blood and in our bodies is connected to all the waters of the world in ways that are compassionate, empowering, creative and ever flowing. It always finds or creates the right and correct path as it makes its way, as it flows from the places of old to the places of new with truth, conscience, responsible action, self empowerment, and personal sovereignty.

Make a fresh start, begin a project, initiate a new relationship, start a new routine. Create a New Moon ritual: set an intention, light a white/silver candle, imagine the new moving toward you in joyful, powerful ways; spend a few moments breathing in the energy of this new reality each day, making it more and more tangible. Work this for one moon cycle and re-access and energize on the next new moon if needed.

Make a difference this year in your life and in your part of the world.

New Moon Blessings,
Cherokee Billie

Waxing Half Moon in Taurus

Monday, January 26, 2015

When the moon is in Taurus, in our bodies, our gardens and our earthly connection need attention. The mood is creative, fertile, sensual, and stubborn, so slow down, get grounded, put in steady work, tend the body and feed the senses. Nurture rather than push. Plant seeds or ideas.
