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.

THE MOON IS MY CALENDAR began with the longing to connect more deeply with inner and outer cycles. The 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 New Moon Calendar/Journal, was born out of a vision to create a beautiful and simple tool for women to connect with their physical, emotional, and creative selves within the context of the phases of the moon. The first calendar was self-published on the Winter Solstice new moon of 2014 and has grown exponentially for there!
