Celebrate the Full Moon


      This month of January is known to some as the Wolf Moon. To others, Quiet Moon, Snow Mon, Cold Moon, Chaste Moon, Disting Moon, or Moon of Little Winter.

January's Full Moon is in honor of Ch'ang-O, the Chinese Goddess of the bedchamber and protector of children.

Her place on the moon was known as the Great Cold.

The energy and flow of the Moon in this month is of ending old cycles and the planning of new ones, it is appropriate to communicate with Ch'ang-O.                                                   

It is said that the designs on face of the Moon are that of her Hare. Yutu the Hare, took Ch'ang-O to the moon to escape the rampage of YI, her husband.  YUTU the Jade Rabbit keeps her company while he works to recreate and finish his silvery elixirs.

As lady of the Moon, she glows, brilliant and eerie light, offering good fortune to those that remember her. Prayers and offerings are most welcome.  

Having been separated from Yi, her husband for so long, she's sympathetic to all lovers. This is why couples are romantically-inclined to cuddle under the silvery moon.

In this time, preceding the Full Moon of Wolf, take some time to contemplate what needed changes there are to be made in your life. If nothing comes to mind, you might choose instead a social wrong to be righted, children's rights, women's shelters, help for the homeless. Ch'ang-O is concerned with people issues, mostly that of women and children. As long as it has real meaning to you.

Things to bring:

Appropriate dress for the weather                                                                         

(as I hope to be out of doors)

Chair

Chalice - (if you have one)

Mess kit - for snacks after ritual                                           

(as we would like to be environmentally conscious)

Something to Share

With Love and Light,
