I created a HorMoon Awareness Guide to help women understand the significance of their menstrual cycle in relation to the lunar cycle. Of course, the menstrual cycle does not always follow the lunar cycle – but this guide will help you understand your emotions in relation to the phases of the cycle.
The traditional Native American teachings instruct men to treat things that are sacred with, “all due respect” This respect included recognizing the sacredness of women during their Moon Time. “It is well to be good to women in the strength of our manhood because we must sit under their hands at both ends of our Continue Reading …

The narrow and mechanistic way in which modern science tends to investigate and explain life, the world, and human health has robbed generations of people of a true knowledge of how these things actually work. In an up-and-coming new book Blinded by Science, author Matthew Silverstone explores how vibrational energy, water, magnetism, and plants all play a crucial role in health, and how the Western scientific method as we know it has utterly failed to grasp the critical connection between the natural world and real health.

“Whoever desires properly to investigate the art of medicine must first take into consideration the seasons of the year, and how each is capable of operating, for they not only do not resemble each other but differ widely the one from the other in the changes they bring about”.

The welcome season of spring officially arrive(d) Sunday (3/20), at 7:21 p.m.
This vernal equinox is one of eight key dates in the ancient calendar of the Celts, marking crucial moments in the passage of time. Exact dates of equinoxes and solstices vary about a day or two, year to year, governed as they are by natural cycles rather than human calendar.
Society’s seven day calendar week is the only major rhythm of human activity that is totally oblivious to external nature. This so-called “social week” rests on mathematical regularity alone. We may casually assume that our week is really a division of the moon cycle. If that is our assumption, we forget that the lunar cycle is not a twenty-eight-day cycle, but approximately twenty-nine days, twelve hours, forty-four minutes and three seconds — or 29.5306 days between new moons. A precise quarter of the lunar cycle amounts to the uneven figure of 7.38625 days. So any week using that true length would begin at different times of the day every time the cycle started. There is just no way to neatly divide the lunar cycle into weekly blocks of complete days.

In honor of the globally observed “2011″ Gregorian Calendar New Year point, I’d like to take a moment and invite us to contemplate what the Gregorian Calendar at large signifies for us personally, and as a planetary species. What role does it play in our daily lives? How is it serving to guide us within this Universe?
Winter Solstice, with Full Moon Lunar Eclipse falling on the exact same day for the first time in 456 years
Dear Motherpeace Friend:

What a momentous event, this Winter Solstice, with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse falling on the exact same day for the first time in 456 years. Both events have numinous power and each would be significant on its own; but the fact that they are happening together puts us in more-or-less uncharted territory.

How long has it been since you looked at the sky for as much as five minutes? If you are like most people living in the Western World, you have not done so for a long time. Most of us stop looking at the sky, except to see if it is going to rain, about the time we enter grade ten in school. If parents have allowed one unlimited access to television or computers one may never have spent any time at all looking at the sky. Yet, when you do look at the sky you will notice an amazing thing. The sky is larger than the earth. It seems infinite. One may look into the sky forever and never find a place where it stops. It is not surprising that our ancestors of the dawn times saw the sky as a place of endless wonder and mystery. The greatest wonder is that we do not.
