Welcome to Lunar Medicine!
I am so happy to have you here!
Lunar Medicine is a 4 week journey on practicing herbalism with the moon. You do not have to be super knowledgeable or even follow astrology to be able to work with herbs in conjunction with the moon. This is all about following the natural flow and rhythm by working alongside the cycles of the moon.
A full cycle of the moon is approximately 29 days. There are 4 main phases of the moon during the cycle: New, Waxing, Full, and Waning. Within those four phases are smaller microphases: waxing crescent, 1st quarter, waxing gibbous, 2nd quarter, waning gibbous, last quarter, and waning crescent. We will touch on the microphases during the lessons, but our main focus will be on the four primary phases.
As the moon affects the tides and our own energy (you’ve heard the saying that the full moon brings out the wild side), it also affects the plants. By recognizing the gravitational pull of the moon on the water content of the soil and plants, we can best serve the plants by working with the moon’s energy.
