The full moon is coming, it will be at its apex here in the Southern Hemisphere at 1237 AEST on the 24th of July.
Known as the Wolf Moon, Ice Moon, Old Moon or the Dreamtime Moon. The name Wold Moon comes from Native American culture and refers to the long nights of winter when the wolves could be heard howling hungrily to the moon.
The association of wolves and moon, is not just a Native American feature, tales can be found in folklore all around the world from North America, to Scandinavia and Germany.
Under this full moon, we honour the silent winter snows that cover the Earth, beneath the white blanket, Mother Nature is sleeping, resting, regenerating, and renewing her energy for the growing season just ahead.
As this is the time when Mother Nature deems rest and regenerating is called for, so to is this the time for us to stop and rest. This is the time to not just rest physically, but emotionally, mentally and spiritually as well.
With this full moon, this is a wonderful time to take the inner journey, to find out who we are, and where we are going. Spring is just around the corner, and when it arrives we need to be ready for the growth that will occur.
This is a wonderful moon to work with amethyst crystal in meditation, place it under your pillow to help with prophetic dreams. Remember to write everything down when you wake in the morning.
