( Add 6 months to the month to get the southern hemisphere equivalant. The Wolf Moon is in July [January+6=July] )
THE WOLF MOON
The word January came from the Roman name for this month. It was
named after the God Janus, who was the God with 2 faces. This was the
God of the past and future, beginnings and endings. With January
considered the first of the year, being named after Janus is almost
perfect. This is the perfect time to put aside the old and the bad
in your life and start anew with fresh new thoughts and goals.
