10th January 2020 – is the Full Moon (the Cold Moon)
It is also known by its name of Wolf Moon or Snow Moon by Native Americans due to the snow on the ground and the fact that Wolves howled more intensely within this month.
The Cold Moon in January is a perfect time to re-charge our inner selves and bring balance to us spiritually.
Like New Year Resolutions this is an amazing time to take a step back and revaluate ourselves and reconnect to nature and everything around us, spiritually, magically, naturally.
As January has much shorter days and longer nights the Full moon can help you work on your intuition.
At this time of year I like to declutter myself physically and mentally – letting go of events and things from the past year, I have not let go of, and are causing an imbalance in my spiritual being, as well as having a massive tidy and decluttering of my home, so both my physical and spiritual health is in complete balance.
There are many ways that this can be done through crystals, meditation, herbs, smudging and incense.
Use what makes you feel right – if its crystals use them; if it is burning incense do that, it is always about what makes you feel complete, not what someone else does, it is what you use that is unique to you and you alone.
Experiment to see what works for you. I always let these things happen naturally I never think “oh this is what I should be using” I always feel – sometimes I will use smudges other time incense alone will be enough for what I need.
On the 10th I will probably use Lemongrass due to its properties to be able to aid in your mental wellbeing, relieving stress and helping you feel calm and relaxed.
There are other incense you can burn at this time – Frankincense & Myrrh, Lavender, Forest, Cedar, Nag Champa, Oodh and of course White Sage.
You can find a lot of these items as herbs or within smudges that will do the exact same thing.
For my middle son the incense smoke can sometimes affect his asthma, so he prefers to burn these fragrances in his oil burner.
As I said before this is purely something that is personal to you.
