Full Wolf Moon

By the light of the moon Full Wolf Moon

the full moon wolf howls. 

A spectator to some, 

the truth to others. 

Go dear ones and 

bask in the light 

of the full wolf moon. 

 

The January Full Moon is known as the Full Wolf Moon, and in some Native American cultures, it is called the snow moon, to other Native tribes this occurs in February.

 Why is it called this? 

In Native American and early Colonial times, the Full Moon for January was called the Full Wolf Moon. It appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages as the snow piled high.  The cold bareness of the land, created an echo, a call to the land, Mother Gaia, for food.

  Why a wolf? 

In symbolism and the totem,  the wolf is known for a strong connection into higher intuition. If you have ever heard of the idiom “wolf’s instict;” this is true as they have a way of knowing just when to appear.   A wolf is an excellent communicator with other wolves, the spiritual world and Luna (moon). As the wolf appears to you, what does your instict say or react to, what you are trying to say, but are not be hearing. Another moment they are known for is “sinking your teeth into,” but rather, thinking in a scary manner, look at it as what is the wolf trying to show you, communicate to your tru heart.

January Full Moon: 

Let’s look at the energies that have been cycling for us.  This full moon is January 23, 2016 @ 05:46 pm PST.  This is at the end of Mercury Retrograde.  Mercury Retrograde is a time of reflection, it is a time to slow down, unwind and truly see what no longer serves you.  The bareness of the winter land, Merucry and the Full Wolf Moon can help you release that which no longer serves you.

Do not look at this as death, rather look at this as stillness. The stillness that you need to release, so that you may re-birth into a renewal of your heart and soul. A moment to go deep within, and sit with what you heart truly needs, not what the etheric ego desires.  As the wolf comes, sit with thee, request for the energies of the wolf to help you transfer what you need to Luna, so she may let it go.

Howls of the Wolf Removal of Old Baggage: 

  • Light a candle, and gaze into the flame. 
  •  Ask what do I need to release, stop listen and allow the stillness  unfolding to 
  • the beating heart.  
  • The heart whispers, allow this to deepen. Allow your heart to speak its truth. 
  •  Write down what comes, light this over your flame, and let it go releasing-to the wolf, who’s
  • howling, 
  • voicing echos will carry to Luna.  
  • Luna will release this from you. 
  • Take 3 deep breathes in. 
  • Rest.

 

Go Dear Ones, healing your heart by the light of the moon using an eternal flame.  Happy, Howling Full Wolf Moon and Happy Releasing, each and every Dear Heart. May you be peace and love to your heart.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings, 

Natasha

R-E-S-P-E-C-T, do you have it?

by Natasha Botkin

Respect can be defined as: “esteem for or a sense of the worth or excellence of a person, personal quality or ability, or something considered as a manifestationof a personal quality or ability.”

To me the first part is the super important “esteem for a sense of worth of a person.” 

One thing that the Blue Full Moon and the Lion’s Gate has rendered forth is respect; respect for all living creatures.  The death of Cecil and Jericho is just one of the many disrespectful elements that are being driven.  It is easy to point out the fault of another and render an opposition of decency.

Yet, how is this okay to not stand up for you.  Do you not deserve the same respect towards yourself and others.  You, do!  How often does your heart scream no, I cannot and your ego says, yes I would love to help…Then when you request assistance, the same is not rendered.  

With the Blue Full Moon, I reflected back on people in my life.  The sad truth is, I need to release and let go of those who do not balance me.  Do I let go of me as well.  Yes, yes and yes.

What does that mean?  

What piece, part of you, do you know needs to be released and stop an addictive pattern?  Addiction, I am not addicted; if you are doing something that you know is not in your best interest, dear one, this too is an addiction.  I can hear the egos spouting off!  She does not know.  Oh, but I do, once upon a time, my ego loved to spout off.  Now I allow,  it  the ability to flow like the ebb and flow of an ocean wave-in and then out, “it” is no more.  A nervous habit (addiction) I picked up was not voicing what I should, sit quiet or rather a family saying to me sit down and shut up.  So, I learned to pick at my cuticle until the point of bleeding, instead of saying what I wished to express.  Do I know this not for my best interest, yes.  Did I cease this, maybe; there are days when I am still working on it.

Do you feel balanced? respect-yourself walkaway

If you are in a relationship where you do not feel balanced.  Are you being respected?  Nope, sorry as tough as it is to admit, you are probably not being respected in the manner upon which you deserve.  Everyone deserves to be given respect towards themselves and receive respect from others.  This can be any realtionship intimate, friendship, and even work.  As tough as it is to admit it, admitting it helps cease the pattern.

How does one cease this pattern and/or belief? 

  • Stand up for yourself!  Now does this mean, that you have to scream, rant and throw a fit…well this is probably not a good idea.  This is not only disrespectful to you, but also to those who will not listen to your acting a fool (so to speak).  Even if this means standing in the mirror and practicing the word NO and mean it…do not listen to the ego voice in your heading edging god out and trying to drive your bus.  respect-yourself-and-others-will-respect-you
  • Practice positive affirmations.  Google a few, place them where you can see them, on your mirror, your cell phone.  Sit back and watch how this will begin to affect you.
  • Meditate.  Meditation is a way to calm the storm.  If you find yourself anxious and in a situation that another is not respecting you, take a few deep breaths and center yourself.
  • Repeat a mantra or a healing sound. I adore the sound AH; this represents the heart chakra and reminds me that it is all about heart and love.  I love me;therefore I deserve to be respected by me and others. AHhhhh
  • Go for a walk.  Walking is a way to clear the mind.  This can even be a stroll, a power walk, hike, whatever you need.
  • Yoga.  Now this is not the time to worry about what you look like, whether you need a pedicure or that everyone has these hot yoga bodies.  It is me time and dear one it is all about you!  As I recovered from cancer, I was introduced to chair yoga, it was all I could do at the time.  There is no “wrong” way for what you need.

These are just a few moments for respect to show or help you have it show up in your life.  May you have the respect that you deserve from yourself and others.

Much Love, Much Light and Magical Blessings,

Natasha
