Moon When All Things Ripen

As the last new moon of the summer, this moon exemplifies a passage in time from one season to the next. By this time of the year, and with our work to date on appreciating the cycles and rhythms of nature, we rest heavy in our hammocks (hurricane aside) seamlessly enjoying the breadth and warmth…

Betrayer Moon

The new moon today is a more rare event than you might realize. This moon is a blue moon, named for two disparate qualities: the color the moon can appear at certain times of the year and for the fact that it is an “additional”, i.e. 4th moon for the season, the second in a calendar…

Midsummer Moon

As we embark on the hottest days of summer, we are reminded of the undeniable forces of nature, which are now nearing their greatest intensity.  At this juncture, it can become natural, almost instinctive, to continue our own intense efforting. However, this is the time to ride the crest, look around and see how to maintain…

Moon of Claiming

There is an interesting correlation in the time between the transition from the summer solstice to the new moon that arrives today, which connects our celebration of Independence Day with the Celtic name for July’s New Moon, the Moon of Claiming.  Though this could be a coincidence, it is interesting nonetheless to consider what parallels we…

The Moon When Berries Are Ripe

For this installment, I’d like for us to get back to basics.  The new moon in June is often referred to as “The Moon When Berries Are Ripe,” which has such a palpable, and quite frankly, beautiful, simplicity to it.  With nature on full display, this time of year is typically an enjoyable one, and I have…

Partnership Moon

Two weeks ago, I wrote about the significance of the Milk Moon and the importance of our relationships. Now, as we enter into the phase of the Full Moon, we should take this opportunity to take action, looking more fully into the quality of the relationships we have.  We need to honor our loved ones, not…

The Milk Moon

The new moon in May is often referred to as “The Milk Moon,” which no doubt conjures up an immediate and direct correlation to a mother’s milk, the very first substance a parent is able to use to nurture their children.  Far before likes, dislikes, habits and preferences develop, a mother’s milk is the very substance…

Money Moon

Having just put our taxes behind us, it is the perfect time to reflect on what we’ve earned and spent this year, not just in the traditional sense of our money, but with an appreciation for the energetic, emotional and spiritual currencies that are more critical to our well-being.  As Jeff Gitterman, a financial advisor, author…

Seed Moon

The new moon in April is known in certain cultures as “The Seed Moon,” which I can’t help but liken to thoughts of personal growth and investment, in more senses than one.  Admittedly, with the arrival of tax season, April can be a stressful month for many, for a multitude of different reasons. However, equally, it is…
