The Winter Solstice definitely stirred my curiosity about full moons and since, I’ve learned that each month the full moon has a special meaning. Who knew? I certainly didn’t. So what I’ve learned is that January’s full moon is called the wolf moon. Why? Well, since January is usually the coldest month of the year, wolves and other predators will come in closer to towns and neighborhoods to find food providing more of an opportunity to be seen by us humans during this month. Second, wolves have been known to be very family oriented, just like us. They depend on each other and will help each other survive.
So the thoughts are… the wolf moon symbolizes the importance of family. I’ve read that it’s an excellent time to work on our relationships, partnerships, and matters of the heart….a time for us all to be thankful for the love that we share with both our biological family and those we have chosen to call family. Even though there’s rain here in the desert, not allowing a view of the full moon, it doesn’t keep me from thinking of the importance of the wolf moon and being so thankful for a wonderful loving family and friends that are a part of my life. Thank you to each and every ONE of you!
