Under a Full Moon ~ Man in the Moon
A full moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are on opposite sides of the Earth at the same time. Occurring on a 29.53-day cycle, the full lunar phase in each month is known by many different names depending on the culture or religion.
The full moon in January is known as the Wolf Moon.
It is also commonly known as the Old Moon, Ice Moon, or the Moon After Yule.
Buddhists refer to the January full moon as Duruthu Poya while Hindus call it Paush Poornima.
In 2014, the January full moon will occur at 11:52 pm (EST) on Wednesday the 15th.
In Norse mythology, the Wolf is a symbol for victory when ridden as steeds by Odin and the Valkyries on the battlefield.
According to Celtic lore, the Wolf hunts down the sun and devours it each dusk to enable the moon to dominate the sky at night.
