How to use the Moon Phases for Better Health and Greater Happiness

The harmony and balance of Natural Rhythms guide all that we do – our very existence. Our ancestors lived their lives by the rising and setting of the Moon and Sun. It was a necessity for them to be 'in tune' with the natural rhythms of the Earth.  For us, in this modern world, it is a choice.  
Join me and let's discover how you can use the natural rhythms of the Earth and the moon phases as a tool for better health and greater happiness.

Understanding moon cycles and how they affect the body can be a key to better health. To understand how the moon influences your health the first step is to realize that your human body is made up of over 60% water, and the moon affects all water on the Earth.  The moon controls the ebb and flow of the oceanic tides and it controls your human body in the same way.

As I mentioned earlier, our ancient ancestors lived their daily lives by the rising and setting of both the Moon and the Sun.  Out of necessity, they studied the phases of the Moon and the effects the Moon had on their bodies, on the animals that they hunted for food and their crops were planted and harvested by the moons influence.  The Native American calendar was based on the moon ... I am sure you have heard the expression, 'Many Moons ago', 'Once in a blue moon' - a blue moon happens when there are 2 full moons within a calendar month, that 2nd is the blue moon.  Women's menstrual cycles were tracked by the moon and actually called her 'moon time'.  Full Moons were given names -  October's Full Moon for the Cherokee is called the Harvest Moon.  As you can see the moon was pretty important in the lives of the native american. Our ancestors turned to the moon for right timing, time to plant, time to harvest, time to heal, time to move on.  We can use this ancient wisdom as well, for assistance with healing.

Historically man has tracked the Moon Phases out of necessity and curiosity.  During the Colonial era Benjamin Franklin published "Poor Richard's Almanac" - it was a best seller and most every household had an almanac and used it for many things.  The Almanack contained the calendar, weather, poems, sayings and astronomical and astrological information.  The Farmer's Almanac is an annual North American periodical that has been in continuous publication since 1818.  Offering a calendar, based on the phases of the moon, which includes Weather predictions, planting and harvesting guides, fishing guides - and health tips.  It was common to consult the almanac when scheduling any medical procedure or surgery.  I remember my Grandmother and Mother discussing if the 'signs were right' .... what they were really doing was consulting the almanac to see what Zodiac Sign the Moon was in and if that sign was favorable for a particular activity or not.  Have no doubt that Almanac's were considered a serious resource by most of the world's population.
