Often we struggle through life because we are so far removed from our natural environment. However, we also can enjoy life, ‘go with the flow’, be more organized and create great results just by tuning in to natural seasons and cycles.
Many gardeners, organic farmers, wine growers and herbalists tend to their plants, and harvest their crops according to the Moon. They produce organic, tasty and nutritious food without the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
The Moon’s gravitational pull on water (moisture and fluids) is visible when we look at the tidal movement of the oceans. It is less noticeable on rivers and lakes or in plants and animals. However, the Moon does have a strong influence on the sap in plants, and a more subtle influence on our blood, lymphatic and cerebral fluids.
As the Moon revolves around the earth in 29.5 days, we see it waxing – increasing in size, full and waning – decreasing in size. During the waxing phase, cells are in absorption mode, they expand, the internal pressure rises until Full Moon, when it is at its highest. As the Moon begins to wane, cells release these fluids, and shrink as the pressure decreases.
Once you become aware of how it works, you can apply these natural laws to yourself and your family’s wellbeing. You’ll discover a healthier, gentle way of life more in tune with the Moon.
