What a wonderful way to begin another year with the Full Wolf Moon on January 21, 2019 in the first degree of Leo! So go ahead and Howl at the moon! The Full Moon reaches its peak on January 21, 2019, at 12:16 AM EST.
Being as this is a powerful total lunar eclipse it is also called a blood moon because of the reddish color caused by light being refracted by Earth’s atmosphere. With three major events all in one day think of the power that is coming through for you and use it for your best and highest good.
Like a regular full moon only stronger, a lunar eclipse focuses your attention on relationships, your home and your family. A total lunar eclipse has an even strong influence on your private life. Sun opposite Moon qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a lunar eclipse. This allows you to take an objective and balanced look at your close relationships. Because you will be in touch with your own needs and intentions, you will clearly see any relationship imbalances causing disharmony.
This is not just any Full Moon, but a Full Super Moon. We are definitely going to have some strong energy on this night. This is the first of three Supermoons this year and on the night of a Full Lunar Eclipse. A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is at its closest approach to the Earth and it will look larger and brighter in the sky. This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Wolf Moon because this was the time of year when hungry wolf packs howled outside their camps. This moon has also been known as the Old Moon and the Moon After Yule. The wolves are out in this bright light this time of year, anxious and hot on a trail for a feast to shake their hunger in the lean winter months. The normally elusive wolves were once found all over Europe and the United States. The Native Americans living close to the land held them in high esteem, along with other animals they encountered.
Being as this is the beginning of the year it is time to set your intentions for this year by the light of the moon. For many people the Wolf Moon holds deep meaning and this is a good time to let your inner wolf howl!
Every full moon that comes around I use as a checkpoint for my life. This Full Moon is about starting with an empty clean slate; it is the conception of an idea to become birthed into life with the coming full moon. I do this just like thousands of others have for literally thousands of years.
On the night of the Full Moon ask your Angels and guides for a dream message on how to more fully step into your power before you go to sleep. Upon waking, write down what you remember of your dream, even if it is just one word. Meditate on it.
Plan a spiritual ritual to protect your home and loved ones.
*Light a white candle and say out loud the following prayer.*
“I now ask to be surrounded by God’s Divine White Light, with my Guides, Angels and Ancestors, I ask the Archangels and Angels to continue to protect my loved ones and me. Surround me fully and completely with Your Divine White Light.”

The Full Moon is the time of greatest power and the perfect night for a Spiritual Reading as it’s a night where energy is in abundance. This Moon is a great time to take a snapshot of your life and see where you are and where you need to be going on your personal path.
Please Note You Do Not Need To See The Full Moon To Make Your Requests And Intentions To The Divine.
Often people write me and say I wasn’t able to see the full moon. It does not matter - the moon is always there whether we see it or not. During the daylight we do not see the moon yet it still exists.
Regardless of what your Moon sign is, a couple days each month we all feel the influence of the Leo Moon. When the Moon is moving through Leo, regardless of how you normally feel, you will have a stronger desire to let others know how you feel. You’ll be more apt to tell people that you love them, or express your appreciation for them. This might also be a time when there’s a strong urge to turn the romance and passion in your life up a notch.
Full Moon phases herald a proper time for endings and closure. Full moon’s also signal an appropriate time to shine a light on or display works and deeds that were previously veiled during the new moon phase.
Significance of this moon is not just about emotions but it is about closeness. January tends to bring families close together with indoor activities. Some say it is a good time to work on relationships, partnerships and matters of the heart. Or, it is a good time to work on new ventures or projects that require some study time. This full moon will emphasize how fluent we are to the emotions that are attached to our communication, how much we share, and how much we relate to others.
January’s moon can be bold and bright or covered in silky clouds. Like the wolf it can appear to be cunning. A symbolic lesson could be that progress is sometimes subtle and happens behind the scenes. Because wolves are also incredibly resourceful they can also symbolize our own hidden potential. So do not be afraid to let your inner self howl at the moon!
Full Moon Blessings,
Thank you! Many blessings to you also!

Thank you Cherokee Billie for sharing a helpful reading.
Regarding your quote, “On the night of the Full Moon ask your Angels and guides for a dream message on how to more fully step into your power before you go to sleep. Upon waking, write down what you remember of your dream, even if it is just one word. Meditate on it”: Though I didn’t ask my angels and other guides the night of this past super blood wolf moon, because I often ask for their guidance and thank them ahead of time, I had a vivid dream that I shared publicly via my blog, along with the insights that I gained.
Regarding your quotes, “Regardless of what your Moon sign is, a couple days each month we all feel the influence of the Leo Moon. When the Moon is moving through Leo, regardless of how you normally feel, you will have a stronger desire to let others know how you feel” and “This full moon will emphasize how fluent we are to the emotions that are attached to our communication, how much we share, and how much we relate to others.”: This is SPOT ON! _ I had no desire to blog for a while, but I did today, and it was a long post filled with various expressions, to include personal experiences and content that I never shared before, and my family relationships.
