We're now in the thick of 2024, with 2023 fully in the rearview and the next 11 months of the year in our sights. How are your resolutions going? If you don't have any, how's your month going in general? What progress have you made? What setbacks have you faced?
No matter your progress, you'll get another chance to kickstart yourself on January 25th, when the full Wolf Moon rises. It'll be rising under Leo, meaning we'll all get a burst of bright, enthusiastic energy that we can then put towards an area of our life that needs it the most.
If you need more specific guidance, here's how the wolf moon will affect your sign in particular.
For Aries, under the Wolf Moon's glow, your current loves, pastimes, and artistic endeavors will be at the forefront of your mind. What sets your creative expressions apart? What is your motivation for continuing them? How do they make you feel? Now's the time to really show off what you've been working on.
You'll feel a push to express any feelings you've been holding toward people in your life, especially secret feelings of affection. As a fire sign, you thrive on sharing your heartfelt emotions, and under this full moon, the urge to speak your truth intensifies. Don't fight it, let all your feelings fly.
The full moon in Leo illuminates your realm of intimacy, Taurus, emphasizing the significance of validation, visibility, and support within your home and/or your close circle. Be genuine and vulnerable with those you consider close, let them comfort and help you when the time calls.
You might feel inspired to tweak your living space so you can better reflect your authentic self in the décor. Alternatively, consider throwing a lively party so you can both spend time with friends and be motivated to do a full, healing cleanse of your home.
For Gemini, the Leo full moon will have you really in your head, being very analytical about your thought patterns, especially ones that trouble you. This won't be something you'll be able to work through on your own, talk to a friend about what you've been thinking so they can help you do something constructive with what you learn.
You truly thrive when sharing insights with your peers. With this full moon's power, engage in a meaningful conversation with a friend, and be as honest as you can manage, for that earnestness will return to you in kind.
During this Wolf Moon, Cancer, your attention will be drawn to your present finances, budget, and personal resources. This is the moment to recognize both the possessions that bring you pride and those you wish to acquire. What can you do to reach the financial goals that will let you do that?
While there might be a temptation to splurge, it's wise to monitor your spending closely. Give yourself permission to indulge sometimes, but bear in mind that self-care doesn't always require extravagance, especially if it doesn't align with your budget. Prioritize nurturing yourself in ways that are sustainable and fulfilling that also don't involve spending a ton of money.
Leos will be infused with a unique and powerful energy this moon as it's rising in their sign, and it's the first full moon of the year! You'll feel a burst of motivational, enthusiastic, optimistic energy that you're free to put toward any one of your current goals.
You'll also contemplate ways to showcase your best self. You're hoping for people to see you, really see you, to recognize and admire the truest parts of yourself, not just the ones you put on display for the world. Let your friends in, let them care for you. Their love for you is true and pure.
On January 25, the Wolf Moon directs your focus inward, meaning a time of meditation is near. This moon is a gentle reminder to acknowledge the often-overlooked gifts within you. You can't be praised for these talents if you don't ever show them to others. Be proud of who you are, every part.
While you may not be seeking the full spotlight, there's still gratification to be found in engaging in practices that boost your confidence behind closed doors. Embrace the quieter moments that allow you to appreciate and nurture the aspects of yourself that you want to see grow, not what anyone else wants to see.
For Libra, the Leo full moon will bring your present friendships, alliances, and social circles into focus. Think of those you keep close in your life and those you keep at a distance. Are there any you want to swap around? Is it time to make some social changes?
This moon invites you to observe how your community reinforces and validates your identity. If you've been sensing a lack of attention from your peers, that should be changing soon. Remember to only engage with those who honor, admire, and uplift your truest self. The rest just aren't worth it.
This full moon will bring out your aspirations for authority and self-expression in your career, Scorpio. You'll have your heights set high, so much so that your head may be in the clouds a little, so be sure to include some moments to ground yourself back into reality.
There's a chance you'll be gaining recognition for your work or stepping into a new professional role. While you usually value your privacy, this is a day when others will want to celebrate your accomplishments, and you should let them! Embrace the praise, let it heal your heart.
For Sagittarius, the Leo full moon illuminates your spiritual beliefs and quests for higher knowledge and wisdom. You'll feel a craving for something more, something that seems intangible. Now is the time to begin or return to any spiritual practices you've been thinking about.
You'll feel motivated to participate in conversations that expand your awareness of the world. Whether it's physically exploring new places or hearing stories from those who live differently, stepping out of your comfort zone is the key. Embrace spontaneity and engage in activities that challenge your usual routine, fostering a deeper connection with every profound aspect of life.
During this Wolf Moon, Capricorn, your focus will shift to your debts and financial commitments. Your inherent sense of responsibility will push you to take a closer look at your spending habits and acknowledge any dues that require immediate attention.
Whether it's settling debts or assisting a loved one with their own monetary challenges, you approach these matters with confidence. With this moon's energy, you'll demonstrate your ability to tackle even heavier topics, showing off your capacity to handle responsibilities gracefully.
The Leo full moon will cast a bright light on your love life, Aquarius, emphasizing the validation and acceptance you yearn for in your relationships. If you're not feeling fulfilled in that regard, now's the time to have that conversation and share what you need from your partner.
During this time, your attention may shift to connecting with those who truly see and appreciate you. While you may not typically seek excessive attention, now is the moment to vocalize your needs. The people in your life are eager to celebrate and uplift you, let them do it! Bask in the warmth of their support.
For Pisces, the Wolf Moon sheds light on your duties, habits, and productivity, encouraging you to take pride and authority in these everyday pursuits. If you've been feeling detached from your regular routines, now is an opportune time to reset your focus.
Even with a lengthy to-do list, be sure not to neglect yourself. After completing a task, allow yourself to indulge in a well-deserved reward, which can be anything that brings you a sense of joy. Strike a balance between your responsibilities and self-care to ensure a fulfilling and productive full moon this January.
