January Full Moon – Wolf Moon

January Full Moon – Wolf Moon

fullmoonmeditation

Saturday, January 26 brings us the first full moon of 2013 – the Wolf Moon.  In some circles also known as the Old Moon, North Moon or Snow Moon, among others.  This is a great time of year to create a ritual or prayer for good fortune and/or a change of luck.  Also a good time to work below the surface, turning inward for self-reflection.  You may need to conserve your energy by working on issues that may not involve others.  And work on aligning your body, mind and spirit so ‘they’ can work smoothly together as you move towards your goals.

Wolf  Moon Correspondences  Add the following items to your altar or sacred space:

Herbs:  marjoram, cones, nuts, holy thistle; birch tree

Flowers:  crocus, snowdrop

Incense:  mimosa, musk

Colors:  bright white, black, blue-violet

Stones:  chrysoprase, jet, onyx, garnet

 

Try this Recipe:

Indian Spiced Tea

7 cups cold water

6 green cardamom pods

1 cinnamon stick

6 cloves

1 1/3″ piece of fresh ginger root, peeled & chopped

2 tablespoons of black tea leaves

1/4 cup light brown sugar, honey or agave nectar (or to taste)

Bring water to boil in large pot.  Stir in the spices and sweetner (brown sugar, honey or agave) and boil gently for 5 minutes.  Take off the heat, cover and steep for 10 minutes.  Add the tea leaves and bring to another boil.  Turn heat to low, cover and simmer for another 10 minutes.  Strain the tea leaves and serve.  (If you don’t have a strainer you can use a coffee filter or cheese cloth.)  Option:  add 1 cup of milk (almond, soy, rice) during the last 10 minute simmering process.  I have also substituted green tea leaves for a no/low caffeine option.
