The first full moon in January is often called the Wolf Moon. It’s believed that wolves howl the most during this month due to the shortage of winter food. The Wolf Moon signifies a time for each of us to take stick of the good things in our lives, reflect on our accomplishments and to let go of that which is negative. Ravens and wolves help each other during the harsh winter months: raves alert wolves to carrion (fallen animals) and the wolves gratefully open up the hides to feed. After the wolves replenish themselves, the ravens feast on sinew and bone marrow. The ravens’ beaks are often not strong enough to break through the hides themselves and this mural approach allows them both to survive the winter.
