THE MOON IS MY CALENDAR began with the longing to connect more deeply with inner and outer cycles. The creative seeds for the New Moon Calendar/Journal incubated in Casa Amor, where April and Sita met on the new moon for many years to set intentions, reflect on the previous lunar cycle, and support each other's growth and transformation.

The first calendar was designed and self-published by April on the Winter Solstice new moon of 2014. Since the initial printing of 50 calendars in Berkeley, CA - this transformational tool has grown exponentially and become an integral part of the healing practices of incredible people all around the globe. In Spring of 2017 Sita began translating the New Moon Calendar/Journal into Spanish, and sharing the teachings in workshops in México.

THE MOON IS MY CALENDAR would love to know about your connection with the moon and personal growth. Check out the love notes and testimonials HERE and share one of your own! 

Lunar time is connected to cycles and the energetics of expansion and contraction. It acknowledges change, impermanence and the spiral nature of the universe. It’s both mystical and practical.
