A General Note About Full Moons and Astrology
Full Moons are seen as the most important times in the Moon’s monthly cycle (approximately 28.5 days), with a lot of strong feelings. During these times, feelings can rise up, excitement can grow, and people might easily get annoyed. Full Moons always represent an important moment, like a big change, ending, a big discovery, a tough time, or a final point. Find out how to use the energy of full Moons to take good care of yourself. Full Moons often deliver important news and events in the few days before and after them.
Wolf Moon 2024 Astrology
This year’s Full Wolf Moon will reach peak illumination on January 25, 2024 at 12:54 p.m. EST at 5 degrees of Leo. Leo is the fifth zodiac sign on the wheel and is a Fixed Fire sign. According to astrology, Leo is a vibrant zodiac sign ruled by the Sun said to rule passion, creativity, fertility, and children—as well as romance and dating.
On the zodiac wheel, Leo stands opposite Aquarius. This axis ties to our desires, hopes, and dreams. Romance and friendship are also highlighted. You may feel eager to live in the moment, pursue your heart’s desires, and stand center stage.
The week surrounding this lunation (three days on either side: January 22-28, 2024) is one of the best times for singles to put themselves out there and line up suitors. Someone may captivate your heart!
If seeking pregnancy, you may also have luck. Creation in terms of art and hobbies are also brought to light. This is a great time to enjoy yourself and embrace your inner child.

When it comes to astrological energy that will color this full Moon, there are many to pay attention to. Luckily, overall, this is a rather joyous and exciting full Moon, even if it is a bit intense.
The full Wolf Moon will square Jupiter, making us feel larger than life and hunger for expansion, growth, and new horizons. Lucky breakthroughs could pop up.
However, egos will also be enflamed, so don’t let your arrogance go to your head. This is further amplified by Pluto’s alignment with the Sun. Intense desires to transform our lives may bring us the courage to assert ourselves and to face power struggles with those who oppose us.
The other planets are all in wonderful placements, meaning we will feel social and exuberant as well as have opportunities to enjoy the beauty of the moment.
This is also one of the most significant periods of the year for singles to pursue new love or date. If you’re looking, go for it! Remember: The energy of a full Moon lasts three days before and after.
Note: Look back to the conversations, plans, situations, relationships, and actions initiated on and after the new Moon in Leo (23 degrees) on August 16, 2023. You may find yourself evaluating similar circumstances now.
