January ~ Wolf Moon/Hunger Moon
   The Wolf is the embodiment of the GreatSpirits. The year starts with the outlook of taking the first step of the year on the right path of spirit and along side the wolf. During this month the wolves once roamed the countryside, thus suggesting the name wolf moon. In cold and temperate climates of the Northern Hemisphere, it was difficult to find food during January, thus the name hunger moon. This is a good time for planning your year from a spiritual perspective. What do you want to accomplish this year. What do you "hunger" for? Set some goals and plan how to achieve them.
February ~ Snow Moon
