The moon has always marked the passage of time

This is a beautiful and incredibly useful tool for tuning into natural cycles. I use my moon calendar to watch the big movements and shifts of my energy and experience—the ones that I can often forget to notice as I move through day-to-day life. When I’m tuned in this way, I find my life has a rhythm to it and I can move through it more easily and connect more quickly with my own knowing and intuition.

"Tracking my moods and cycle have been life changing. It has allowed me to see and tune into my feelings and when I need some extra self care and love."

"It's pretty incredible the way the moon's energy affects me; it's not something I truly anticipated when I started journaling. I discovered that I become incredibly irritable and short with others in the handful of days leading up to a full moon. I focus my meditative practice during that time to channel my energy towards being empathetic and patient."

"I am beginning to see that the intentions I set can manifest when I attend to them. Life really is a garden!"

"I am very hard on myself. I feel like I'm never doing enough or making any progress in the things I want to do. Through using the new moon calendar I have realized how much I go through in a cycle. I am giving myself more credit for what I do accomplish and am learning to be kinder to myself when my goals need more time. I have also seen how much of my energy I give away to others and have been making more space for what I need to nourish myself."

"At the end of the cycle I seem to automatically know what the next cycle will be "about". I've journaled for years, but it's so nice to tie it into my own natural rhythms like this. It's way more meaningful that way!"



The Moon is my Calendar. What a beautiful offering. Since I first got it in the mail, I knew this item was crafted specially for me straight from the bottom of another moon lover’s heart! The first thought that came to mind was: I wish I had this tool when I was a lost teenager spending most of my nights alone gazing at the moon, knowing that she and I had a thing, but Her mystery was too grand to fathom.
