Full Wolf Moon in Leo

It’s a Wild Leo Full Wolf Moon

The January Full Moon is also known as North Moon, Old Moon, Ice Moon, Earth Renewal Moon, Turtle Clan Moon, White Road Moon, Cold Moon, Snow Goose People Moon, Birch Moon.

We prefer to call it the Wolf Moon here at the Eye. Wolf sings out in the night, calling to other wolves, defining territory, and celebrating the moon’s light; much like some of us do in circle. We also are more aware of the wolf, because Minnesota is its territory. Ely Minnesota is the home of the International Wolf Center.

With this full moon, the wildness abounds. The wolf howls, but the lion roars.

This full moon is in Leo, the lion’s sign, which means the sun is in Aquarius.

Aquarius is about the whole being greater than the sum of its parts. When we tune in to the universe, and work with others, we become not just our own limited ego, but a force which can shape communities, and shift the direction we are going, from a downward spiral more up and out towards our ideals. Leo is about self-empowerment through creative leadership. It is a good time to call on Sekhmet, the Lion-Headed Goddess of Egypt. Her name is derived from the Egyptian word “Sekhem” (which means “power” or “might”).  Sekhmet was known as both a warrior goddess and a patron of healers, as both a creative and destructive force; but above all, she is the protector of Ma’at (balance or justice) and referred to as “The One Who Loves Ma’at and Who Detests Evil.” So if your cause is to help bring things into balance, you can call on her to protect your endeavor. Leo energy does not benefit a back-seat driver, but gives strength to a true leader who steps out in front, being that quiet example which inspires others to make their own changes.

Just one step out of your comfort zone, with a clear vision of things to come, can shape your whole year.

You know people who have dared and stepped out and become your inspiration. Your vision can be small things or large. Remember that the smallest nut can grow into a great tree, exploding with life and shelter for others. With the Sun in Aquarius, and the full moon shining through all your pockets of shadow, meditate and look for what is revealed, even if it seems a little nutty.

What gifts do you set aside, what enthusiasms do you dampen, what would make you leap out of bed to start a new day? What can you do for family, friends and community?  These are world-changing times, and the world changes one life at a time. The only world you can really change is your own. This is where Leo comes in. Make that simple change or that great one, and see where it leads. Look at other leaders and mentors, to see how they blaze paths and invite others.

As a caution, be aware this is also a time of obstacles and the occasional overreaching misstep. The start of any journey worth taking often has challenges and unforeseen circumstances we must deal with.  But the key is to know that your vision is true. Don’t worry about the steps not being what you expected. Think about a life or career that is most authentic for you. We too often ignore our own individual, quirky gifts, when that is exactly what we should put forward. Freedom is an Aquarian touchstone. Just remember to include the community aspect for a full Aquarian boost.

January Full Moon Ritual

Full Moon Ritual & Potluck

Leos love celebrations, so on the full moon, be sure to kick up your heals and have some serious fun.

Besides, this full moon is on a Saturday Night! Our Lady of Celestial Fire is hosting an open full moon circle at the Eye, but if that’s not your style, definitely plan a night out or in with friends. The full moon on the 26th kicks off a three-day flow of energies and revelations as the Sun trines Jupiter and Uranus in a focusing triangle.  This dynamo of creative energy reflects off the Leo moon to poor down on us all. Be open to receive insight and inspiration, pay attention to your dreams, and keep your aura tuned and ready for synchronicity and chance encounters.

Finally, be ready for the wonders to poor forth until Jupiter stations Direct on the 30th after being retrograde since early October. You may notice a lull in the energy and momentum, but just sit back and wait a minute. The scene is changing and the stage is getting set for a new act as the Moon enters Virgo on the 28th Monday evening. Then it’s time to get organized and get going on all the practical details of your grand plan, and you can move forward after getting all charged up by this wild Leo Full Wolf Moon.

New Moon in Capricorn

New Moon in Capricorn

Friday’s new moon will be in Capricorn, but it won’t be alone in that most practical of signs. The Sun and Moon come together at 21 degrees Capricorn, which in turn meet up with Pluto, Mercury and Venus; all in Capricorn. But this gathering of energy doesn’t end there.  Capricorn’s ruling planet is Saturn, the Lord of Karma and planet of fate. Saturn also rules Aquarious, and Mars will be in Aquarius. What does this mean? A mega-dose of Saturn energy.

Saturn’s Energy

Saturn Astrology

Saturn loves tradition and experience. The energy of this planet is about duty and discipline, and it is a great teacher, if you can learn to work within structure.

Take your time and be patient for the outcome. This is not the time to run off willy nilly. Be practical and use Saturn’s energy to shore up your self-discipline to not only dream, but to actually take your ideas, feelings and energy and manifest what you want in the world. Because, although daydreaming is fun, It’s not enough to have a dream, and now it’s time to have a plan, and oh, what a great time to plan this is.

Manifest your Destiny

Every new moon is a new beginning because it marks the time from darkness to increasing light, which makes any new moon the perfect time to set things in motion and plant seeds for future growth. But this time, with the new moon in Capricorn–the more you can plan, visualize and take concrete PRACTICAL steps, the better.

If you are working with others to manifest a dream, so much the better. You can use the power of Mercury in Capricorn to your advantage.  Mercury is all about communications so think about written goals, press releases, or writing ‘the future story of our lives’ to describe how things will manifest. Brainstorm and work together.  Mercury is especially useful for formalizing and communicating plans, and making them practical, with achievable steps and goals.

Time to follow your Heart

Speaking of plans, what is your heart’s desire? Not just for now, but that thing which you get reminded of every few years or so? Maybe it hasn’t seemed realistic before now, but with Venus in Capricorn, and Saturn, the Master of Time working for you, it just might be the perfect moment to figure out how practical it would really be for you to follow your bliss. What is your first step?

Whatever you do, take your time to set both the big goals and the practical ones. Make a plan. Saturn will block you if you just start running out on an adventure, without your pocket handkerchief, but this lover of organization rewards patience and responsibility. So if you have a clear vision, and take steps towards that vision, you can expect to find doors opening and just what you need at your fingertips. The smallest act of will sets up just the right resonance to call out to the universe, that now is the time. But you need to be ready for this law of attraction to work, and you need an action plan so when the resources appear, you can utilize them.

If you need ideas, here’s a hint. With Mars in Aquarius, you have a lot of energy to put toward Aquarian values like creation, change, building relationships, living within your means and making a difference in people’s lives.

So don’t be afraid to dream, but put together a plan, line up all the resources, and give it a nudge to put something new in motion.

Happy New Moon in Capricorn! If you liked this article, please share with a friend…

Full Moon in Cancer: Dec 28th

Full Moon in Cancer: Dec 28th

Cold Full Moon 07° Cancer

Friday, Dec 28, 2012 at 4:21 A.M. Central

Cancer Full MoonOther  names for this December Full moon: Frost Moon, Winter Moon, Long Night’s Moon and Oak Moon

Cancer is the sign for home, which is perfect in this hibernating time of year. But cancer is also liable to indulge in emotions, moods, and concerns for safety. For those who are affected by our lack of sunlight, this can be a challenge as we turn a bit too far inward. But just remember, the solstice has passed, so the days are getting longer.

So how do you deal with this need to nest and feel?

Spiritual Cleansing

Spiritual Cleansing

Turn your emotions and intentions outward, to service; whether it is working on the feng shui of your house to make a more positive atmosphere, creating more time for family and friends, or just coming up with a good budget for the year. This is an ideal time for strengthening your home base, core relationships, and being of service.

The holiday season can be festive and hectic, so now is a perfect time to do a bit of energetic tidying of your home. Break out the sage, basic, lavender or any number of herbs, oils and candles to bless your home, such as this Spiritual Cleansing Blessed Herbal Candle. Whenever you can, open the blinds to let all the sun in, and take some time to be zen like a cat as you sit and soak in whatever warmth and natural light you can get.  Candles can be particularly good in the dark evenings this time of year.

This cancer full moon is also a healer’s moon, as all the care of home-loving cancer is illuminated, especially for healing rifts in family relationships. Remember to care for yourself, take time off, rejuvenate in a spa or even just a long, luxurious bath.

Mercury is not retrograde, but…

Peaceful Home Mojo Oil

Mercury sextile Uranus is one of our strongest aspects right now. It’s energy is all about the unconventional, provocative and surprising, the drawbacks are misunderstandings, usually in the form of rudeness or interrupting others simply because of over-excitement. The solution to this problem is the energy of full moon in cancer, where we concern ourselves more with others. Taking care of others, providing service, making sure all voices are heard.

To ensure everyone stays civil at home, try this Peaceful Home Oil, made from traditional Hoo Doo recipe with essential oils and real botanicals. Anoint a candle with the oil, sprinkle it on your hearth or anywhere you want to create a happy and harmonious atmosphere.  This line of oils takes aromatherapy back to its roots in the immigrant and native american lore of hoodoo.
