It's the first full moon of 2021
Wolf Moon in Leo
~ from 28 January
January is on its way out, and it brings us to our first full moon of 2021, the “Wolf Moon”.
Here’s what you need to know about the Wolf Moon.
"wolf moon" ?
Each month’s full moon has its own name related to the season or nature. This moon’s name comes from Native American tribes who heard the howling wolves during the cold nights in January.
This was of course in the northern hemisphere’s winter season. Here in South Africa it is summer in January, so to us it’s just a full moon – the first of the year, and happens to fall in the constellation of Leo.
So we have the wolf and the lion characteristics combined, making it a bit of a wild card, an indication of the energy that lies ahead! Are you ready?
The Wolf Moon in Leo
Why do wolves howl?
To communicate, to connect…
They are inter-dependent rather than co-dependent and
represent the wild and the natural,
inner emotions and hidden feelings,
while in Leo the wolf moon brings rise to a need for self-expression.
The typical Leo is fiery. Add a full moon, then some drama is to be expected. Make sure to direct your energies positively.
