I hope everyone has a Blessed Esbat tonight :) Even if you don't intend to work some magick tonight, I truly hope you'll take a moment to step outside and soak up a bit of the moonlight. I am hoping the weather will cooperate tonight and allow us to be able to see her clearly.
January's full moon is known as the Wolf Moon, Cold Moon, or Chaste Moon. Suitably named if you live somewhere cold like I do. :) As I look across the field behind my house completely covered in snow and the icicles hanging from the trees I do believe Cold Moon is quite accurate of a name. Native Americans called this full moon the Wolf Moon as they listened to the wolves howling in the distance while they tried to stay warm.
If you are planning to work with the full moon tonight it is a great time to work with magick relating to protection, both physical and spiritual. It is also a great time to work on developing your inner self and advancing yourself spiritually.
When working tonight consider incorporating some of the following into your magick.
- Colors: Black and white, silver
- Gemstones: Hematite
- Trees: Birch, Hazel
- Gods: Inanna, Freyja
- Herbs: Thistle, nuts and seeds, marjoram
- Element: Air
