  • Thank you for the  Moontime Diary. What a beautiful and practical diary with a wealth of information.
    I’ve looked through it and will enjoy reading it each day next year and applying the info.

  • How I love your Moontime Diary, its my bible and goes with me everywhere. I even travel with it. As you know I’m a huge fan and have purchased one every year since discovering them 4 years ago. I also want to mention how recently I went to the movies with my sister and I had the most enjoyable time. Later that night I wondered about what made it so special the movie was like any other movie we had seen, but the day was filled with a different type of energy. The best way to describe it was it was just so enjoyable. A few days later I looked back at my diary and noticed that on that day it said ‘great day for the movies’. I was amazed and astonished. The moon is a wonderful and powerful guiding force in our life. I use your diary for many events. From immunising my young sons to evenings out. Thanking you again and again.

  • I have found that being aware of the moon's cycles is helpful in everyday life and in business. In dealing with others I remind myself that people (teenagers!) can be more sensitive in the days immediately leading up to the new moon and the full moon. The new moon is often a time of new beginnings, i.e. new friendships and projects, and has proven to be an ideal time to set new schemes in motion such as business promotions ­people are more receptive from the new moon up until the full moon when, as emotions build, things tend to come to fruition or culmination, or a head. I have observed this trend in my own life and have seen that major events i.e. an awards night, graduations, large dispatch of goods etc. will invariably occur around the full moon. It’s an interesting phenomenon to observe!

  • Thank you for creating such a wonderful product in the Moontime Diary. Over the past seven years I have used another style of moon diary, but switched to yours in 2010 with the desire to gain a more in depth awareness of the natural cycles, applicable to everyday life. This I have gained and more inspiration and application of the knowledge in such a practical way, I feel more in sync, and the results of fine tuning to the moon show. I've tested them.
    Gabrielle Williams
  • It's the best Diary I have ever bought and I have been buying it for years. Everyday I check my Moontime Diary and I take it everywhere and share it with everyone. I love it that much it's been the perfect Christmas gift for years for my family and friends. Tune to the moon and be happy and healthy. Like wise Iris and thank you so much for such an inspiring Moontime Diary. I so look forward to receiving them. It's lovely how you look after your customers and the communication is second to none.

  • It is an awesome diary, I got my first this year and it has been invaluable for everything, hair cutting and colouring, leg waxing, planting, mowing, crafting, eating, oh my god just so many things. Now I just have to convince my husband to run his farming to the dates too.

  • I bought the Moontime 2011 only a few weeks ago and I can't understand how I have lived life without it!! I feel like I have been walking around with my eyes shut and now. Its like a fog has lifted and I can see clearly to plan my days and the rest of the year!! The daily tips are amazing, and I actually find I am getting things done that I normally think about doing but never actually do!!! (You know, cleaning the windows!!) I have become so much more organised because I am now looking in my diary for a good date to do certain things, like book in with my hairdresser next Thursday because I have curly hair!! I will be buying next years for sure.. and every year for evermore!!!

  • I love everything about it! The main benefit for me with the Moontime Diary is that I have moon VOC times and monthly ephemeris at hand when I'm out and about. Jenna W.
    Jenna W.
  • So many times I have planned or re planned my week successfully utilizing the extra tips that a normal ephemeris or calendar just doesn't have... the Moontime Diary is such a part of my life now ♥ It is always within reach, it is my sales book, planner for the kids and my go to for the many people asking me 'what are the planets doing'... Moon in Scorpio for me, so I like to know exactly what's going on.. love love love, Butterfly

  • Hi Iris, Thank you so much for posting the 2012 Moontime Diary and Calendar. Love the cover you designed, the foreground so tranquil and full of light. Looking to the horizon and beyond, into the future, and what lays ahead, so complements the diary. Could you pass my complements to Mo Orkiszewski, on the beautiful detail in the drawings. Thank you again, may you have Love, Joy and Peace on your Journey, Anne-Louise H.
    Anne-Louise H.
  • Thanks Iris.  I wanted you to know how much I love my Moontime Diary.  Every edition is better that the last!  The other one is for my Dad (who is 77) and can't live without it either.  Cheers Karen
    Karen T.
  • I think the 2013 will be the 5th one I've had so I am more than happy to contribute to your webpage. Love the new design and detail- this one seems so much more complex! Not only do I plan events around info in the diaries but find the natural syncronicity so amazing! For example, my son will ask for a hair cut (his is out of control) and the only day the hairdresser is free is a day for "slow regrowth". Same with gardeners, catching up with friends and internal drives to do certain things as certain times. l love it! The Moontime Diary is great! Keep up the awesome work

  • Thank you so much Iris, received the Moontime Diary this morning. It's wonderful as usual! Thanks again, love Fiona.
    Fiona D.
  • I use it constantly and love the handy reference to know when to arrange a hair cut or a party and when I spot a moon in Taurus falling on a Saturday I try to organise dinner, wow, food really tastes way better on those days. And moon in Scorpio...not so much fun apart from the sexual energies being so enhanced, at least I can make the best of it! I'm a traditional astrologer so of course it all means a lot to me. I adore my Moontime Diary for many reasons including that I can quickly see the main planetary aspects of the day. It's helped me be really in tune with the moon and I've learned way more about the subtleties (and not so subtleties) of how the moon's sign and position affects us. Many thanks for your work Iris, Love Melanie

  • Diaries for Christmas and 2007 by Steve Payne Moontime Diary 2007 This is definitely a diary with a difference. Thursday April 26 (a fire, fruit, hot, protein day) has these three notes: • Hawthorn tea is a heart tonic and is very beneficent today. • Avoid synthetic fertiliser today – it tends to burn the plants. • Seed and plant fruiting vegetables. What we have is a simply presented diary that works with the principles of the moon phases and positions, and how they influence nature and other beings. As with gardening by the moon, the creators say the moon can be used as a guide to nutrition, body are and the environment. Printed on 100% recycled paper

  • Thanks for the Moontime Diary 2009, which you sent me a little while back. I really like the changes you’ve made. I bought your diary for the first time last year, after having used Steve Jolley’s for over a decade. Although I miss him, you made the transition relatively painless. I like how you’ve included the moon’s aspects for each day, daily positions for Chiron and the outer planets, and the large moon-phase graphics. I used to earn a living doing astrology fulltimeand I still think in planetary cycles so, from my point of view, the more detail I can read off my diary by the phone without having to reach for my ephemeris, the better. Thanks for a user-friendly product. Bless

  • I’ve been using the Moontime Diary for two years too. I love having instructions telling me when to do everything for planetary induced favorable outcomes – when to eat what, when to treat myself to a bath or a massage, when to cut my grass, when to defrag my computer, when to cut my hair and more importantly when to not wash it so it doesn’t go frizzy! Oh, the guidance in this little book is unending..
    Daisy M.
  • I have used it two years in a row and then went to a digital calendar this year….and I am oh so missing it! I miss the gardening tips, planetary alignments and my menstrual charting on the moon planner! Returning back to it for 2012 – without a doubt!!
