The Full List of Full Moon Names and Their Meanings

January - Welcomes The Wolf Moon

inner power, insight, assess your journey, protection

As the first full moon of the new year rises, this name comes from the weather during this time of year. It's cold and snowy and in some places, the wolves run in packs, prowling for food. The spiritual meaning of this Wolf Moon as one of protection, introspection, and a deeper connection to the intuitive sense that lives within. This is also called the "Moon after Yule" which inspired our bath bomb from our annual Yule collection.

September has always marked the harvest period for some of the most important food grains. If everything goes according to plan, farmers will be able to work under the light of this moon far into the night and store extra food for the winter.

The Cold Moon is our last full moon of the year, and it’s all about reflection. It gets its name from the coldness of the long winters and the darkness of the nights. Its a good night to sit in silence, under the full moon and think about all that has happened during the last 12 months of your life.
