The first full moon of 2017 is a moon of many names, but I have one more to add to the list.  Some call it “The Cold Moon,” “The Wolf Moon” or “The Hunger Moon.” I call it “The Awakening Moon.”

It seems that many in this country are suddenly waking up to all that has been hidden or swept under the rug for centuries.  Hash words indicating a lack of compassion for others have been spoken in soft voices in dark rooms filled with fear and greed from the very beginning of our country.

Those who long ago took what was not theirs  were called “The Founding Fathers of a Nation.”  It’s not just here, it’s not just now. Money and power for a select few has been the driving force of humanity’s least admirable qualities across the centuries and continents alike.

For me, this New Year’s first full moon is offering an awakening that can shed light on our collective opportunity to teach positive action so that we follow our higher calling as citizens of  planet earth.

Now is the time to put promises aside and step into action to protect those who may not be able to fend for themselves, and to speak up when nasty hateful things are done or said.

My role as an elder and teacher is to shed light on solutions, not problems. What I know is that when we think globally and act locally, we witness how love, hope and positive action come out of the darkness.

Shine on, you “Hunger Moon.” I hope we never lose the appetite for fairness, compassion and equal opportunities for all.

Shine on, you “Wolf Moon,” and give us strength to continue to howl when witnessing harm to others.

Be as “Cold a Moon” as necessary to freeze destructive, self-serving forces. May your light encourage us to be the positive change we want to see in the world.

Thank you for your centuries of reflection. I pray that each of us can begin to heal the wounds of this dark time as we become the source of love, light and laughter for all.


Your inspiring enlightening words are an inspiration to be positive and find good in this world. Thank you Noe Noe

Noe - your writing is breathtaking!! I see your growth in all kinds of ways through this - and I love it! And I wish you much joy and success and health and prosperity.

Noerena, "To thine own self be true" has been my guide. Your words speak for the multitude of people's who know our very foundation as a country is faulty. It was taken out of greed not founded. Thank you for being our voice of reason as we trudge to becoming a human among humans with love and equality as our guide. You are gifted and inspired and l am grateful to see your courage as you speak your truth for many of us. You are a light of hope for us all. Big love, Sandie
