Connect with Your Inner Lunar Wisdom {Moon app Review}

 

Hey Siri, when is the moon in the sky?

I wonder as I raise my children in a world that asks Siri for answers, will they learn that the answers are not outside of themselves?

And yet being human seems to be about the experience of forgetting.

Forgetting we are infinite, that we are all connected through the nature of life, and that we are indeed made of stars.

So what helps us to remember? The wisdom of the moon cycles can help us awaken to the unknown, great mystery of life. La luna points the way in the darkness. The cycle of birth, life and death are present in the way the moon shows her light to us.

Listen and observe and you will know

That is easy to say and there is the reality is that our lives are busy. Where do you start...?  

Begin with the what and the why?

What do I want to know about the moon? and why do I want to know it?

Do I have the answer within myself?

 

 

Moon Viewing, Lunar Phase and Astrological Sign

If you want to see the moon it helps to know what phase she is in - this connects to when the moon is in the sky. It's a dance, and when you know the steps, you don't need an app to tell you. There is a rhythm. To learn the basic steps, download a visual guide here: Hello Moon

To know what astrological sign the moon is in, is a whole other layer to the moon cake. This is the flavor, which changes every two and a half days. Again, ask yourself: Why do I want to know? What core feeling am I looking for?

 

THREE Moon Apps to connect with your inner wisdom AND THE COSMOS

Apps can be incredible tools for discovery, distraction, connection and convenience. It is amazing how technology and social media has the power to connect and isolate us. It's all in HOW you it gets used.

The beauty of technology and digital media is to go paperless, go wireless, to know about whatever, whenever you want, and to have instant access to the entire globe and solar system at every moment. 

A super important question to ask is: Does this help me feel more free or does it create cold depression?

According to Yogi Bhajan, cold depression is caused by information overload, unrelenting stress, and rapid change contribute to cold depression. Bigger. Faster. More. These are all elements of modern life. The glandular and nervous systems of most people on the planet are not sufficiently developed to meet this challenge. When we don’t have the energy within, we seek it outside ourselves. - from 3ho.org

 

Allow what you seek, to bring you deeper within. There are three moon apps that I use almost daily that I will share here: iLuna, Moon Pro, and Planet Finder.

 

iLuna app #themoonismycalendar

iLuna has a great month overview calendar that is color-coded with all the astro signs. The home page gives you the phase, the astrological sign and when the moon is going void of course. I love to see how things turn out if they are planned during a void of course moon - usually not well! Since this is about your experience and inner wisdom - use the app to see for yourself! The moon doesn't dictate your life, but it does become easier if you work with her.

 

Moon Pro is brand new to me :) and I already love the simplicity. It shows you the time of the moonrise, sunrise, moon set and sunset. Sometimes when I am going through my day, I ask myself: Where is the moon right now? Often when I ask that question I check the app and see that she has just risen or set. It's like a game I play with the moon and my sensory awareness of her presence. The app helps confirm this. Also you can set the calendar as the Hebrew or Islamic calendar. For someone who is into lunar time this is like candy! or a green smoothie.

planet finder app #themoonismycalendar

Planet Finder is fun! my kids love it. You can see where all the planets are in the sky - just the planets no background constellations. It shows who is hanging out with who. Is the Moon having an evening or morning conversation with Venus? It's a great way to see the unseen - or help fine tune your eye to see what has always been there. This app has helped me have the feeling of the planets as neighbors and unique beings on their own journey. 

 

THE MOON IS A MIRROR THAT POINTS YOU BACK TO yOURSELF

What phase am I in? Am I coming or going? Your sensory awareness can be developed to pick up on subtle shifts in the environment and in your body. Anything you learn can point you back to inner wisdom, what you already know.

I love to create tools that supports growth and transformation - and from what I know, this happens with sensory engagement. What a moon app sheds light on must be practiced in your day-to-day life. The New Moon Calendar Journal is one way to bring the moon more intimately into your daily practice and align with lunar time.

Charting with the moon helps you develop your personal relationship with this guiding light and to see your own patterns. I considered creating an app for THE MOON IS MY CALENDAR and realized the physical act of turning pages, of writing intentions with a pen and seeing the flow of my life in lunar time is what matters to me. The moon mirrors the inner guru - the teacher that goes from darkness to light.

This mirror reflects the phases of creation: At the new moon we can see with the seed of all possibilities. When the moon is a new crescent we can feel fresh and renewed. At the first quarter it's time to decide and commit. When the moon is full and bright she reminds us of the way we shine and the gifts we have to share with others. At the last quarter, she asks us to reflect, digest and reset for what is next.
