The Moon Holistic Lifestyle

What does it mean to Live with the Moon?

The LWTM lifestyle calendar is inspired by the Ancient Lunisolar Calendar already in use in Ancient Babylon. This calendar model is guded by the sun and the moon, showing us not only dates, but also ‘day qualities’. 

‘A year’ is marked by one rotation of the earth around the sun. The moon cycle is of course much shorter and takes 29.5 days from start to finish. On a yearly basis, these two cycles seem out of sync.

But stepping back we see a bigger picture emerging. After 235 moon cycles (19 years) both align to exactly the same spot and another 19-year-cycle begins.

The Everyday Quality

As the moon rotates around the earth,  this unique ‘day quality’ changes.  Knowing not only ‘what to do’ but also ‘when to do it’ can make many activities much more effective. such as:

  • losing weight
  • gardening tasks
  • beauty treatments
  • business dealings and life-style decisions

We have grouped all these activities into colored-coded groups and symbols.
Here is the basic overview – called The Month Ahead

Here is a video interview with Morgan Sheets on her fabulous YouTube channel. It explains my motivation for creating Living With The Moon website 





    The History

    People throughout History

    Many historical figures, among them Hippocrates, Paracelsus, Rudolf Steiner, Benjamin Franklin and countless others, all believed that daily undertakings in harmony with the lunar cycle can give them an edge over others. 

    My Grandmother’s Moon Diary

    I was introduced to this concept by my grandmother and to this day I follow her diaries and calculations to work out the best dates for many activities.
    She gathered a lot of local information, like organic planting tips, how to use herbs, diet tips, and beauty recipes that she could make herself. Over time she improved and slim-lined this information. I intend to carry on her legacy and make sure this valuable knowledge is not lost but will flourish in years to come.

    To update the way her diaries are accessed, I created this website and color-coordinated lifestyle planner The Month Ahead.  Access it here.

    Some people mistakenly quote that the moon’s gravitational pull is its main attraction. Obviously, this force forms the tides. But there is so far little evidence that we experience ‘internal tides in our bodies. Although science is constantly evolving and who knows, maybe in a few years or decades we discover new ‘forces’ that do indeed establish a link.

    But for the time being the real power lies in the connection to nature and its rhythms. Living With The Moon is based on thousand-year-old observations and folkloric practices.  As the seasons change, so do our moods, goals, and behaviors. Real happiness and strength comes from within. It is a sign of balance and deep fulfillment. And this is exactly what we are trying to achieve with this website.

    Here is an article that elaborates a bit more about living with an awareness of the lunar cycle.
