Salute to Aningan – the Inuit God of the Moon

The northern sky is broad and flawless black, 

A vast expanse from which most look away,

But Aningan the Moon is on the track

Of caribou and seals, and will not stray.

His barking dogs work hard to pull his sleigh,

Weighted down with fur, and ivory tusks, and meat.

Watch over us, Brave Moon. We pass your way.

And come as brother hunters, on hushed feet.

We ask for your forbearance as we meet

The challenges laid out along the trail.

We brave the winter’s cold, the summer’s heat,

But know that with your wisdom, none shall fail.

Though harsh the path, your patience will not pall;

You serve as an example to us all

Chamaeleon Dark Nebulas

Image Credit & Copyright: Jarmo RuuthTelescope LiveHeaven’s Mirror Observatory

Explanation: Sometimes the dark dust of interstellar space has an angular elegance. Such is the case toward the far-south constellation of Chamaeleon. Normally too faint to see, dark dust is best known for blocking visible light from stars and galaxies behind it. In this four-hour exposure, however, the dust is seen mostly in light of its own, with its strong red and near-infrared colors giving creating a brown hue. Contrastingly blue, the bright star Beta Chamaeleontis is visible just to the right of center, with the dust that surrounds it preferentially reflecting blue light from its primarily blue-white color. All of the pictured stars and dust occur in our own Milky Way Galaxy with — but one notable exception: the white spot just below Beta Chamaeleontis is the galaxy IC 3104 which lies far in the distance. Interstellar dust is mostly created in the cool atmospheres of giant stars and dispersed into space by stellar light, stellar winds, and stellar explosions such as supernovas.

Full Moon January 17th! 5 Things to Know

Full Moon January 17th! 5 Things to Know

January 2022 Moon Details

The Full Moon for this month will occur on Monday, January 17th. The New Moon is earlier in the month on Sunday, January 2nd.

January Full Moon Name

The very first full moon of the year is known in many cultures as the Full Wolf Moon, which is appropriate given the deep, ancient ties between wolves and January’s full moon. For instance, the Gaelic word for January, Faoilleach, comes from the term for wolves, faol-chù, even though wolves haven’t existed in Scotland for centuries. The Saxon word for January is Wulf-monath, or Wolf Month. Meanwhile, the festival of the Japanese wolf god, Ooguchi Magami, is held in January. The Seneca tribe links the wolf so strongly to the moon, they believe that a wolf gave birth to the moon by singing it into the sky. Just why are wolves so strongly associated with January’s full moon?

The most obvious answer is because wolves are much louder and more noticeable in January, which is when breeding season begins. Wolves begin to howl more frequently and aggressively to establish their territory, threatening neighbors and enemies alike to stay far away from their breeding grounds. A small pack of wolves may even try to make themselves seem like a larger pack by howling together. While a lone wolf can sustain a howl for the duration of a single breath, an entire pack may howl in unison for longer than two minutes during breeding season.

While it makes sense for the haunting howls of wolves to be more memorable during January, how did wolves come to be associated with the full moon itself? Everyone is familiar with the iconic image of a wolf raising its head and howling at the full moon – but do wolves actually sing to the moon? While that might be a romantic idea, there’s no scientific evidence that links wolves to the lunar cycle. Humans may have begun to associate wolves with the moon simpy because they are nocturnal animals that are very active at night. In addition, wolves do raise their heads in the direction of the sky so their howls can travel over far distances to reach their pack mates as they roam. Instead of singing to the moon, they’re actually singing to their friends.

In fact, wolves are so well-known for their tight-knit communities that the Sioux tribe called January’s full moon the Moon Where Wolves Run Together. The wolf is often seen as a symbol of loyalty and protection in many cultures. The Wolf Moon is the perfect time for you to reach out to loved ones and reaffirm your connections, in preparation for deepening your bonds and taking on new challenges together over the upcoming year.

That said, lone wolves are also entirely capable of overcoming hostile conditions on their own with their resourcefulness. According to Celtic mythology, the wolf is infused with lunar power, which refers to its ability to sniff out hidden insights or knowledge, and to detect unexpected sources of danger. In some legends, the wolf even swallows the sun so the wolf can bask in the moon’s overflowing lunar power! The Full Wolf Moon is a great time for you to plan out clever ways to achieve your goals for the upcoming year. Trust your wolfish instincts when it comes to decisions, but also be tenacious in searching for useful knowledge that will help you realize your masterplan.

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 6:30 PM to 11:15 PM EST today (3:30 PM to 8:15 PM PST). The Full Moon peaks in Cancer at 6:48 PM EST (3:48 PM PST).

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today’s Full Moon will make you feel pulled between the demands of home and family and the demands of your career. This happens for you once a year. With this particular Full Moon, you can’t ignore your reputation and career.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Pay attention to everything you say and do because this is a mildly accident-prone day because of the energy of the Full Moon. Of course, an accident doesn’t have to happen, but with the Full Moon, people’s emotions are heightened and this can cause distractions.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Disputes about shared property, inheritances, insurance, and anything that is jointly owned might come to a head today. Or a difference in values between you and someone else might also come to a head. In this case, you might have to agree to disagree.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today the Full Moon is in your sign. (This is the only Full Moon in your sign all year.) Naturally, you will feel more emotional and more reactive when dealing with others. Therefore, be aware of this. Tone things down. Don’t overreact. Be cool.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Issues with coworkers might be touchy today. People are ready to bark at each other because they have strong reactions to whatever is going on. You will probably be able to keep a lid on things because this particular Full Moon is “hiding” in your chart.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today’s Full Moon can introduce tension between you and a friend, or you and a group. Keep in mind this Full Moon is a culmination of previous irritants. After it peaks, things will become resolved, diminished or manageable. (One hopes.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today the Full Moon takes place at the top of your chart, which means certain issues might call attention to you. For some reason, you stand out. In particular, bosses, parents and the police will notice you more than usual. This could be because you are at odds with someone.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because this is a mildly accident-prone day for you, be aware and mindful of everything you say and do so that you have no regrets. It’s a poor day for debates and arguments about controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues. Stay chill. Listen to others.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Financial issues might come to a head today. These could be disputes about inheritances or something that you own jointly with someone else. It might be a dispute about shared expenses? Or debt? Fortunately, after the Full Moon peaks today, things will be resolved.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year is taking place, which is why you might have challenges dealing with partners and close friends. People are more emotional during the Full Moon, and too much emotion can cloud one’s logic and reasoning.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Don’t worry if your efficiency suffers today, or you have difficulty dealing with coworkers. You can chalk this up to the Full Moon. Fortunately, this is a brief influence that lasts for about 48 hours. Stay chill and don’t overreact.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Try to cooperate with kids, friends and groups to which you belong at this time because these are the very areas that might be troubled by the Full Moon energy. This agitation will subside after the Full Moon peaks. Patience is your best ally.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Boxer, humanitarian Mohammed Ali (1942-2016)) shares your birthday today. You are an idealist who is inspired by lofty goals. You’re hard-working and persistent when it comes to achieving your aims.

Having to take a menial position is very difficult for you, but once you can submit to taking this position, you will be on your way to advancement with better benefits.

There are plenty of deities associated with the moon—Thoth and Diana for instance—and herbal correspondences include many members of the mint family. Utilize wintergreen or peppermint, as well as catnip, comfrey, sage, and chamomile in your workings.

Why Is It Called the Full Wolf Moon?

The full Moon names used by The Old Farmer’s Almanac come from a number of places, including Native American, Colonial American, and European sources. Traditionally, each full Moon name was applied to the entire lunar month in which it occurred, not just to the full Moon itself.

The Wolf Moon

It’s thought that January’s full Moon came to be known as the Wolf Moon because wolves were more likely to be heard howling at this time. It was traditionally believed that wolves howled due to hunger during winter, but …
