The Wolf Full Moon In Leo Is Bringing The Passion Into Your Life

The first full moon of the year.

The first full moon of 2024 rises this week and it’s bringing some classic Leo drama with it.

While a full moon always symbolises release, the first moon of the year is particularly significant to astrologers because it’s thought to set the tone for the rest of the year. So, before you start your full moon manifestation, let’s explain what this moon is will bring.

Why January’s Full Moon Called A Wolf Moon?

Traditionally, January’s full moon is known as the Wolf Moon because of the hungry wolves who would howl in the dead of winter in the Northern Hemisphere.

However, it’s also sometimes called the ‘Centre Moon’ due to it being halfway through the winter season in the north, and offers a symbol of hope that spring is not too far away.

In the Southern Hemisphere, we can always see this moon as our own ‘Centre Moon’ in relation to our own seasons, and the fact that the intensity of summer’s heat won’t last for too much longer.

What To Expect From The Full Moon In Leo

You’re going to feel more confident this month.

January’s full moon will only ever rise in Leo or Cancer. Last year, the full moon rose in introspective and emotional Cancer, which means that this year, we’re getting Leo’s passion.

Leo is a dramatic, confident and rather self-interested sign, which means that we can expect to receive out own confidence boost.

In fact, this full moon is a good time to pitch your new ideas, indulge your greatest fantasies and generally try and put yourself first for once.

What To Watch Out For This Full Moon

Don’t be surprised if the urge to quit your job and go travelling takes hold.

With more motivation to follow your dreams and desires, be careful about not falling off track. With Aquarius’s rebellious streak taking hold, think twice about any huge decisions (such as quitting your job to go travelling) and make sure you don’t overindulge every whim.

It’s also important to note that all full moons can make you feel the emotions, and with this one being in the dramatic sign of Leo, don’t be surprised if you’re a little more passionate than usual.
