Good evening... Good January nights in which the full moon is called the Wolf Moon.
By all accounts this name was given to it in the Old ́s Farmer Almanac in 1792. And it took that name because the Native Americans called it that because they had noticed an increase in the howling of wolves during this moon.
The Full Moon of January is also called the Quiet Moon, Cold Moon, Snow Moon and Little Winter Moon. All these names are related to the winter season.

Why is the Full Moon so important, whether in winter or summer?
Ever since we were born as human beings, when the moon manifests itself in all its splendour in this phase, it illuminates our nights, it gives light to the darkness. In these times when we suffer from light pollution with our big cities, it doesn't seem to be important. But imagine when it was all darkness and we could only illuminate the hedge of light from our campfire. Then, with a full moon all the dangers of the night were no longer so mysterious. The darkness was mitigated and we were be able to see beyond.
That is why the full moon was imbued with significance, magic and protection. The full moon is the Mother who protecting us, who protects us from dangers, who gives us security.
We can take advantage of this energy to ask for protection for our family and prosperity and abundance in our home for this new year
MEANING OF THE WOLF MOON The wolf moon is the winter moon in itself, we are already immersed in this season. The wolves howl more at the moon in winter because of the lack of food and dare to come down and approach humans searching food. These animals are associated with the sense of group, the pack, the family and with the strategy for hunting which must be more intelligent and efficient due to the time of the year and the food shortage. Thus, the Wolf Moon is a moon that makes reference to all these aspects, all of them in relation to union, strategy for the year, family, group or friendship.
This is why we can take advantage of this energy to ask for protection for our family, for the home and we can also visualize prosperity and abundance in our home for this new year. How to do this?
Here is a small ritual of protection for your home that you can do on the wolf moon.
