1- Full Moons are times of high energy, not just any kind of high energy, but high and creative energy
2- The January Full Moon is associated in Celtic lore with the sacred
Alder Tree and the ogham symbol for it (Fearn). Thrive in tough
environments, protection and prophesy, strength and endurance,
shielding, counsel and guidance are all themes of this sign.
3- In North American Native lore, this is called the Wolf Moon
(sometimes the Hunger Moon or Cold Moon). During this month the wolves
once roamed the countryside, thus suggesting the name wolf moon. In cold
and temperate climates of the Northern Hemisphere, it was difficult to
find food during January, thus the name hunger moon. This is a good time
for planning your year from a spiritual perspective. What do you want
to accomplish this year? What do you "hunger" for? Set some goals and
plan how to achieve them.
