Spiritual Wellness: It’s time to howl at the moon
The first full moon of the year is tonight, January 6th. Called the Wolf Moon, it reflects an old belief that wolves howled at the moon more during the month of January. Spiritually, it challenges you to look ahead and be ready for tough choices. It’s only been a few days since the beginning of 2023, and although it is an exciting time for many, it can also be a time of anxiety and stress. Beginning a new year, or a new journey, is always stressful, and it’s important to recognize this heavy emotion and take any steps you can to mitigate it.
The Wolf Moon is a great time for the release of pent-up energy and difficult emotions that you may have been suppressing. Emotions like anger or irritability, annoyance or impatience. Rage Goddesses like Hecate, Sekhmet, Medusa, Lilith, Kali, and The Morrigan can help you use your anger in constructive ways. Even ocean Goddesses like Yemaya can help you channel your anger and frustration – she doesn’t get angry often, but when she does…everyone better watch out.
One of the simplest ways to release pent-up emotions and energy is to actually howl at the moon. Though we now know that wolves howl for different reasons (including to find pack members or to coordinate a hunt) and at different times, we, as humans, can take a cue from these sublime creatures and do our own howling. If you’ve never actually howled at the moon, you’re in for a treat. Like screaming into a pillow or breaking something, it is a very real way to release negative emotions. It also puts you in touch with your inner animal or “beast.” Thanks to technology and civilization, many humans have forgotten what it’s like to be truly in tune with nature. Howling at the moon can help you get back in touch with your natural instincts.
