January's full moon, known the Wolf Moon, is named as such because of legends from long ago. It's thought that January's full moon came to be known as the Wolf Moon because wolves were more likely to be heard howling at this time, as a way to mark territory, hunt, and find other pack members. The full moon represents a time to harvest your intentions that have been set and making sure they materialize. This moon comes in the dead of winter and is a time for transformation and introspection. This is a great time to reflect on your goals for this year and what you want to improve in your life. It is a time of figuring out what you need in order to have a successful life. It's also a time of seeing what's missing and finding truth in what you long for. It's about sacrifice and finding personal truth and discovering your purpose and how it relates to the bigger picture and society as a whole.
The January Full Moon will be the full moon in Cancer. This is a full moon that will bring you home to your dreams, visions, purpose, power and all that you are capable of. To do this you have to move past the emotions, doubts and fears that have you hiding. Cancer is representative of true feminine energy and strength, teaching you that shutting down your emotions and creating a shell around yourself for fear of being hurt, judged or rejected is no longer an option if you want to truly transform and find peace and happiness. Your intuition, insight and inner guidance will be at their peak under this moon, so listen to them, trust them, believe them - they will never be wrong!
