Wolf Symbolism & Wolf Moon Solutions:
Strategic, resourceful and incredibly communicative, the Wolf is a cue to look to community for creative solutions during this full moon. Tribal rituals should be heeded this time of year as the Wolf can bring many surprises. Wolves are vastly expressive. Sure, their vocalizations (baling, howling and barking) are legendary, but Wolves also have an complex system of body language and even eye contact to convey intent and current state of being.
One look from the Alpha can convey as much power as a physical blow. Its full moon brings big medicine in this. Use this full moon to get in touch with your own modes of expression. Now, you can modify or enhance your authority or power.
Or, perhaps more softness and sensuality is needed. This is a great time to ponder these nuances of communication and act upon your needs and desires. This is big power!
Wolves are also phenomenally resourceful. In fact, their resourcefulness is partly why this moon carries the Wolf moniker. January is a brutal month in the northern regions. The frigidity of winter crunches life to a stand-still in the wild. To be sure, it’s a time of “sink or swim” to all wildlife exposed to the elements this time of year.
Wolves, however, often thrive during this lean month. They are designed to handle the brutality of cold quite well. Furthermore, as Wolves are inclined to pick off weaker animals, January offers up a host of feasting options. Perhaps we can use the resourcefulness of the Wolf to reconsider our options in life. Maybe what seems bleak or lame in our life is actually an invitation for opportunity.
During the Wolf Moon our Gardnerian group, of Wiccans (our coven), draw down the powers that be from the Full Wolf Moon. They incorporate what is considered to be the earliest tradition of Wicca still extant, from which most subsequent Wiccan traditions are derived.
