Tonight is the Wolf Moon – January’s full moon named because of the lupine howling which traditionally haunted the midwinter. If we’re lucky, it will look like this.
When my children were younger and bedtime stories were stiil popular, I remember reading them ‘The Wolves of Willoughby Chase’ whilst gazing up at the moon. For parents of primary school aged children it comes highly recommended from Country Gate HQ. It was my favourite time of day. I miss it more than anything else about daily parenting tasks that are now a memory.
A wolf moon is said to symbolize a time to look to your community for creative solutions and to communicate with inspiring individuals to overcome challenges.
We need that right now, don’t we? There is a great comfort and power in getting to know your community well and working together to make it an inspiring and vibrant place for everyone.
What better way to start off the new decade than by immersing yourself in your local community?
All the teens are stiil at home after the Christmas break. Maybe we’ll share some family time tonight while gazing up at the moon.
