One of the traditional names for the full moon that falls in January is the Wolf Moon. It is said that name comes from the fact that wolves howl more in January. (It is also called the Cold Moon, for obvious reasons.) Wolves howl to communicate with each other and to express emotion. Ironically, many of us tend to withdraw during the colder winter months, when it may be harder to get out and be with others, so this might be a good time to put a little extra effort into reaching out. You can try actually howling at the moon, or if that doesn’t suit you, try singing or chanting. Whichever way you do it, try putting whatever you are feeling into your howl or song. Channel your inner wolf and send your howl out to the moon or to your pack, wherever they are.
