The Wolf Moon

The Wolf Moon will be here on Saturday, January 23, 2016.

I love when the moon is full any time of year but during the cold winter months I like to sit by our fire pit with a roaring fire. The crisp winter air, the warmth of the fire and the bright light of the full moon make for a powerful evening.

The January moon is referred to as the Wolf moon or the Cold moon. It is a great time to focus on spells for protection, both physical and spiritual as well as personal problems.

This year I am going to take advantage of the Wolf (or Cold) moon and focus on what I want to accomplish this year as well as what I want to let go of and also on protecting myself, my family, and my home.  It never hurts to start off the year with safe guarding those you love.

On Using Spells You've Found Online - A Pagan Blog Prompt Post

I’ve decided to take a cue from Pagan Blog Prompts/Luna Sage for some posts this year. The first one I chose was on using spells you’ve found online (Click the image above to be taken to the original post).

I love this topic because I love spells. I have been known to search for a spell to suit my needs but once I find one I always tweak it to suit me and my unique situation.

A spell is so much more powerful when it is personal. Without that personal connection I don’t believe that things work quite so well and if you don’t know the person who created the spell you really don’t know too much about it other than what they tell you.

I like to use spells that I find online as a jumping off point.  I prefer to research correspondences, moon and astrological phases and everything else I can to make sure that my spells suit my intended outcome. A spell is only as good as the work you put into it yourself –at least that is my opinion.

So I see no problem in using spells that you find just use them with caution, research their components to make sure they are for the intention stated and then tweak it so that it is meaningful to you.
