The Wolf Full Moon in Cancer – 17th January 2022
A Wolf inspired Full Moon howls in at its fullest on the cold night of Monday the 17th January at 23:48. This first Full Moon of 2022 is in the fixed water sign of Cancer.
It also brings with it a twinned power animal energy of the Crab and the Wolf. This is a good time to draw strength in those areas you are reluctant to face or own up to.
Draw upon the cunning of the wolf to see who is really there, when we need some support and who isn’t. Knowing who can trust is everything, so use this Full Moon energy wisely.
Why is it a Wolf Moon?
The early Native Americans didn’t record time using months of the Julian or Gregorian calendar. Instead, the tribes gave each full moon a nickname to keep track of the seasons and lunar months.
Most of the names relate to an activity or an event at the time in each location. However, it wasn’t a uniform system, and tribes tended to name and count moons differently.
The January Full Moon was named Wolf Moon because the villagers used to hear packs of wolves howling in hunger around this time of the year.
Full Moon Names
Various other names know the Full Wolf Moon and it can also be called Snow Moon, Old Moon and Ice Moon. However, the last one is usually attributed to the February Full Moon.
While the Wolf Moon is a Native American name, other sources say that it has Anglo-Saxon origins.
In Anglo-Saxon culture, the January Full Moon was also called the Moon after Yule, the time of the ancient festival celebrating the Winter Solstice around 21st December last year.
This Full Moon is directly opposite the current sun sign Capricorn, as well as Pluto, bringing out more of those spiritual good feelings that we have when embracing a brand new year.
The Cancer Moon is also in conjunction with a fixed star, known as Procyon. This star has a Mercury flavour, in that it is mischievous and potentially troublesome. It’s good to have that edge!
On the flip side, the Moon happens to form a lovely trine to Neptune in Pisces. A terrific energy-boosting lunation for creativity and an appreciation for romance and love.
The Wolf Full Moon is a welcome one, particularly during the latest Mercury Retrograde happing right now, highlighting what we should confront and also what we should embrace!
