Happy Full Wolf Moon, Moon Tribe!
Today the Moon is Full in the watery Realm of Cancer (or Leo depending on your time zone), however the watery energy of Cancer is strong because she is ruled by the Moon. With all planets direct and no retrogrades we are feeling the currents strongly.
With Winter in full swing in the Northern Hemisphere, Cancer may be pulling you to stay home and seek nourishment (or gravitate towards the ocean in the Southern Hemisphere heat of Summer). The Wolf Moon encourages you to listen to your body. Listen to your primal instincts and what you need right now.
Even a wolf needs to find shelter and create a den in Winter, so create your own sanctuary.
Do you have a corner or nook you can make your own?
Is your bed calling to you?
Does your altar space need sprucing up?
Can you create your own den with blankets? If you have little pups they would love this!
I created a teepee with lots of blankets to put my altar within. I will also be starting my moon time soon, so this will also be my Red Tent when it begins.
In my den, I included my SDLL deck, Artemis statue, my large salt lamp, and crystals I am working with. Allow yourself to drift into the space to dream, journal, rest, and be receptive to your primal body and intuition. What are you receiving right now?
If you are feeling more social, you can also invite your Moon Sistars over for a cozy retreat in, and don't forget to howl at the Moon together ;)
"The psyches and souls of women also have their own cycles and seasons of doing and solitude, running and staying, being involved and being removed, questing and resting, creating and incubating, being of the world and returning to the soul-place."
Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run with the Wolves
What season is your soul in? What do your instincts tell you?
