“She may feel she will die if she does not dance naked in a thunderstorm, sit in perfect silence, return home ink-stained, paint-stained, tear-stained, moon-stained.”
—Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
The 2017 Moon Dreams Diary is a “total package” in one slim volume. Combining moon phases, charting, journaling, mandala coloring, inspirational quotes, and monthly planning and review, it is a thoroughly beautiful resource for women and girls. Created by Starr Meneely and published by Womancraft Publishing, this daily journal + charting and planning guide, is perfect for any cycling woman as well as for girls starting out their journey with the moon. It will also appeal to any lunar priestess or moonwise woman, regardless of her phase of life. I love the book’s simplicity, compact size, and yet resource-full approach.
Each daily section includes a journal space for the day, moon phase, cycle charting space, and mood. Each weekly segment has an inspirational quote and weekly affirmation. And, each monthly section includes a gorgeous coloring page and a monthly worksheet for reviewing your month and planning for the month ahead.
As I become more and more immersed in Red Tent work, the importance of daily journaling, cycle charting, and the impact of moon phase on my own mood, has become increasingly apparent. I consider this work a vital part of my day, centering me, tuning me in to my own rhythms, paying attention to my body’s communication, listening to the heart of my own life. I’m excited to have added the Moon Dreams Diary to my resources and daily practices for 2017!
“Moon Dreams nurtures mindfulness, reflectiveness and awareness of our body, feelings, menstrual cycle, and the cycle of the moon.”
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of the journal for review purposes.
