The moon after Winter Solstice is a time of deepest, darkest winter and is often called the Wolf Moon as the wolves would howl with hunger. Ancestors would of been living off the stores they had preserved and harvested. The metaphor is well known - keeping the wolf from the door. With the wolf representing starvation, hunger, and the door symbolising away from oneself.
"Well, it may only pay minimum wage, but it will at least keep the wolf from the door"
Being in tune with the seasons and the phases of the moon helps ground us. Most modern calenders don't have the moon phases on them - gardening and fishing ones often do
One way to not be desensitised to the seasons is by not only following the phases of the moon but also eating to the season . In winter our bodies are wanting nourishing soups and warming stews but in the supermarket you can buy any fruit or vegetable at any time of the year including tomatoes, cucumbers, and strawberries in the middle of winter. Our family eats to the season I never buy tomatoes or strawberries in winter but instead we wait and look forward to having them again in the summer which are usually from my garden - they taste like how they should taste. Once you have grown your own heritage tomato you just won't go back to eating the tasteless ones in the supermarkets.
Our winter is being very mild - oh how I am loving it - I even snapped these photos in my nighty in the middle of the night (insomnia attacks around full moon for me) I couldn't believe how warm it was outside. And maybe you too sat up with a cuppa and knitted a few rows then went back to sleep.
I hope you got a chance to go outside and just be under the full moon. Do let me know if you snapped any photos of her.
