LEO Wolf Full Moon (09 Leo 06) 11:16a pst
The first full moon of the year is known as the Full Wolf Moon.
January is the breeding season of the wolf so wolves naturally howl louder and more frequently at this time to warn other wolves to stay clear of their territory. They raise their heads to howl so their sound can travel up to 6-10 miles to find their mate and pack members.
The Moon with the wolf symbol for January presents our own opportunity to reaffirm our connections and strengthen our bonds with others as we take on new challenges collectively in the upcoming months, whilst simultaneously recognizing the integrity of “lone wolves”.
The Gaelic word for January, Faoilleach, comes from their word for wolves. They believe the wolf has lunar power—an ability to sniff out hidden insights and detect unexpected sources of danger.
The Saxon word for January is Wulf-monath, or Wolf Month.
In January the Japanese celebrate the festival of the Japanese wolf god, Ooguchi Magami.
The Seneca tribe links the wolf to the moon believing that a wolf gave birth to the moon by singing it into the sky.
The Sioux tribe called January’s Full moon the “Moon Where Wolves Run Together”.
In a different set of traditions, 4000-5000 years ago, the Full Moon closest to the cross-quarter of Imbolc, was the ancient Brigit festival, when the Full Moon, at this time of year in that era, was conjunct with Spica. This was the celebration of the Sophiac and Solar feminine, and the antipode of the time in August when Spica was conjunct the Sun in the underworld.

In Shamanic Astrology Venus conjunct the Moon each month tells the mythic Sumerian story of Inanna, the queen of heaven (aka Venus), surrendering her power and attachments by going into the underworld, a journey of Shamanic death and rebirth. This Feb conjunction is at the rare 8th gate of descent or Death by intent. Learn more about this magical journey with Cayelin and Tami Brunk, and other Shamanic Astrologers.
Jupiter and Saturn will be really close to Venus and the Moon, in the morning sky, as they prepare to descend into the celestial underworld.
