The Wolf Moon

This January moon is named for the wolf for two reasons: it occurs during the time of the year when food is scarce thus bringing the wolves into the villages in search for food, and the wolf pack is representative of the family. Wolves keep the same families for life.

This is the time to spend time and make peace with family, blood relatives, extended family and family figures. Wear shades of burgundy or rose, and burn rose or burgundy-coloured candles. Alternatively, pine incense is also acceptable.

These colours represent family, love and togetherness. Now is the time to resolve issues that have weighed heavily upon your family or that you have been unable or unwilling to address or accept.

This full moon is in the astrological sign cancer. Use this moon to explore previous lives, make a connection with the past or to renew old traditions.

May You Be Blessed

May you be blessed with all things good.
May your joys, like the stars at night,
be too numerous to count.
May your victories be more abundant
than all the grains of sand on all the beaches
on all the oceans in allthe world.
May lack and struggle be always
absent from your life and may beauty order
and abundance be your constant companions.
May every pathway you choose lead to that
which is pure and good and lovely.
May every doubt and fear be replaced
by a deep abiding trust as you behold
evidence of a Higher Power all around you.
And when there is only darkness
and the storms of life are closing in
May the light at the core of your being
illuminate the world.
May you always be aware you are loved
beyond measure and may you be willing to
love unconditionally in return.
May you always feel protected and
cradled in the arms of God, like the cherished child you are.
And when you are tempted to judge may you be reminded
that we are all ONE and that every thought you think
reverberates across the universe, touching everyone and everything.
And when you are tempted to hold back,
may you remember that love flows best when it flows freely
and it is in giving that we receive the greatest gift.
May you always have music and laughter
and may a rainbow follow every storm.
May gladness wash away every disappointment
may joy dissolve every sorrow and may love ease every pain.
May every wound bring wisdom and every trial bring triumph
and with each passing day may you live more
abundantly than the day before.
May you be blessed And may others be blessed by you.
This is my heartfelt wish for you.
May you be blessed.
