Today is the First Full Moon of 2011.

The full moon in January is known as the Wolf Moon. Last year, the Wolf Moon brought me my son (he was born on this auspicious day- which happened last year on the 30th of January). It is an important time for our family personally. It's also an important time magically, like any full moon.

The moon is the most important heavenly body to Witches. As Witches, we work to keep our lives in the flow of nature's cycles. It is our job to do so, as walkers in all worlds to be in tune with all of those cycles. Since the moon is the astronomical body closest to us, she has a profound influence upon us. If you work with and according to the moon's cycles, the full moon is a time for prophecy, protection, divination. Any working that needs extra power, such as help finding a new job or healing, should be done now.

Witches cast our spells in accord with the moon's cycles. As the wheel of the moon continues on its never ending course, she also travels through the different astrological signs, just as the sun does, only more rapidly. When the moon resides within the various signs, that sign influences the magical aspect of the moon. This month's moon is in Capricorn, so spells involving career, political matters, and ambition would be auspicious to do.

This full moon, I will be doing divination and spellwork to see what the year brings in many aspects of my life. What will you do?

  1. We have a several full moon traditions. One is to take an evening walk after dark to enjoy the full moon. Another is to put something on the windowsill overnight let it bathe in in moonlight.

    I emphasize connecting to nature and letting natural learning flourish in my new book Free Range Learning. May this next generation keep the magic alive.
